60,000,000 And Counting

I am more interested in knowing how many of the 60,000,000 abortions were paid for with tax dollars:

Surprise, surprise! NARAL is defending it population control rights.

Others resorted to ridicule, as the Washington Times notes: "We'll be DAMNED if we're going to let five MEN — including some frat boy named Brett — strip us of our hard-won bodily autonomy and reproductive rights," tweeted the pro-abortion group NARAL.
Media, Dems Can't Find Dirt On Kavanaugh — So Instead They Throw Mud

Quote from number 19 permalink:

His pursuit of the pro-choice voter is so assiduous as to bring into question his intellectual sanity. John Kerry is a Catholic who, he frequently says, opposes abortion but is in favor of the rights of dissenters from his position to have abortions and to advocate a higher incidence of them. That position by Catholic politicians ("I am personally opposed to it, but others aren't, and I respect their rights to their positions") is hardly novel. Teddy Kennedy and Mario Cuomo come to mind, famous expositors of the imputed obligation to transcend private opinions in the service of public consensus.

But Kerry has gone what in better days would have been universally held to be one bridge too far. In a speech last year to the NARAL Pro-Choice America Dinner, he gave an intellectually suicidal summary of his views.

He began by saying that "there is no overturning of Roe v. Wade." He went on: "There is no outlawing of a procedure necessary to save a woman's life or health." That statement of course begs the question on which the entire Congress and the state legislatures and the Supreme Court have been stalled for years, namely, Is the invocation of "health," if made by the woman alone, conclusive in authorizing abortion? If so, Roe v. Wade, which did not authorize willful third-trimester abortions, stands to be revised as the Roe-Wade-Kerry decision.

Kerry continued: "There (shall be) no more cutbacks on population control efforts around the world."

This endorses abortion Chinese-style. Too many people? Too few abortions.

But the eye-popper was still to come: "We need to honestly and confidently and candidly take this issue out to the country and we need to speak up and be proud of what we stand for."

But Kerry says he personally opposes abortion. Where is he exhibiting his pride in what he stands for? Whom has he counseled against abortion? A nun somewhere, out of earshot?

Mankind will be lucky if the genocide crowd controlling governments stops at abortion. Twentieth century governments used more direct methods of killing when they did not have abortion as moral justification for slaughtering their own people. One can only cringe at the methods governments will adopt when they can claim abortion gives them the moral high ground.
Self Is A Property Right

Finally, the SCOTUS already declared the Hyde Amendment constitutional, but that does stop Planned Parenthood from performing abortions with tax dollars. I doubt if Kavanaugh will vote to overturn Roe v. Wade. I will be overjoyed if Kavanaugh’s confirmation will be enough to defund Planned Parenthood’s baby parts business.

TO PMB. One is one too many:

As best I can determine, taxpayers subsidize roughly 24% of all abortion costs in the U.S. with 6.6% borne by federal taxpayers and the remaining 17.4% picked up by state taxpayers. If we apply the 24% figure to the total number of abortions, this is equivalent to taxpayers paying the full cost of 250,000 abortions a year, with about 70,000 financed by federal taxpayers and 180,000 financed by state taxpayers.

I just laugh when I see the stuff the fake "christians" post! They are so stupid, and deluded, they can't be taken seriously.
Thanks from Hollywood
