2008 was a down year for the pro-abortion movement’s talking heads. As you read the quotes below, despite the seriousness of the subject — after all, we are talking about matters of life and death — it’s hard not to laugh at their ridiculous attempts to justify their position.1) NOT THAT! ANYTHING BUT THAT!
Dear leader, President-elect Barack Obama at a town-hall meeting in Johnstown, Pennsylvania in March:
“Look, I got two daughters – 9 years old and 6 years old,” he said. “I am going to teach them first about values and morals, but if they make a mistake, I don’t want them punished with a baby.”
Comment: President-elect Obama demonstrates his disdain for the sanctity of preborn babies by stating that children are “punishments” instead of miracles and blessings.
President-elect Barack Obama answers Pastor Rick Warren’s question “At what point does a baby get human rights?” at a Saddleback Church interview:
“Answering that question with specificity is above my pay grade.”
Comment: The future president will swear to uphold and defend the Constitution and Bill of Rights – hard to do when you can’t decide who gets rights and who doesn’t because it’s above your “pay grade.”
Justin Timberlake/Jessica Biel
“Nobody should be able to say what you can do with your body,” Biel told cheering crowds at Last Chance for Change, a rally endorsing presidential candidate Sen. Barack Obama. “I give Jess the right to choose where we go to eat all the time,” Timberlake added.
Comment: Just when we start to have a sliver of respect for our Hollywood elite, they say something like this. Justin sees no difference between choosing where to eat or which child to kill.
Planned Parenthood of Idaho – A Live Action Films exposé video exposed Planned Parenthood’s deep-rooted racism. A caller posed as a potential donor and the following conversation ensued:
Actor: I want to specify that abortion to help a minority group, would that be possible?
Planned Parenthood employee: Absolutely.
Actor: Like the black community for example?
Planned Parenthood employee: Certainly.
Actor: The abortion – I can give money specifically for a black baby, that would be the purpose?
Planned Parenthood employee: Absolutely. If you wanted to designate that your gift be used to help an African-American woman in need, then we would certainly make sure that the gift was earmarked for that purpose.
Actor: Great, because I really faced trouble with affirmative action, and I don’t want my kids to be disadvantaged against black kids. I just had a baby; I want to put it in his name.
Planned Parenthood employee: Yes, absolutely.
Actor: And we don’t, you know we just think, the less black kids out there the better.
Planned Parenthood employee (laughing): Understandable, understandable.
Comment – The apple doesn’t fall far. Planned Parenthood hasn’t strayed much since the days of its racist founder Margaret Sanger, who once spoke to a Ku Klux Klan group and was a member of the American Eugenics Society.
Ca. Rep. Nancy Pelosi in a television interview with NBC’s Tom Brokaw:
Tom Brokaw: Madame speaker, when does life begin?
Rep. Pelosi: As an ardent, practicing Catholic, …I don’t think anybody can tell you when life begins.
Comment: That’s like saying, “As a vegan, I would like my steak medium rare.”
Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm in support of Proposition 2, a bill that now allows embryonic stem cell research:
“As a Catholic, I can say to be pro-cure is to be pro-life.”
Comment: What about this statement is Catholic? Not a thing.
PP C.E.O. Miriam Inocencio
Despite a six-digit salary drawn from Planned Parenthood’s tax- and abortion-gorged pockets, Planned Parenthood of Rhode Island CEO Miriam Inocencio must have really liked that Macy’s blouse!
Comment: Clearly her day job – helping to kill preborn babies – has affected her moral judgment. If Miriam is hurting for cash, perhaps we can redirect some of Planned Parenthood’s extra Title X taxpayer funding her way?
Comedian Doug Stanhope
These are not empty words. I, Doug Stanhope, am offering you, Bristol Palin, the sum of $25,000 so that you can abort your child and move out of that draconian home. I have also set up a PayPal link so that others around the world can help increase this amount to ease the burden of starting out on your own at such an early age.
Comment: We love it when pro-abortion radicals show their true colors. Stanhope can’t fathom why a young couple would actually want their baby. Nope. Clearly, Bristol doesn’t need love and compassion – she needs $25,000!
South Carolina Democrat chair Carol Fowler
Vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin’s “primary qualification seems to be that she hasn’t had an abortion.”
Comment: South Carolinians overwhelmingly voted for the Palin ticket. That’s got to hurt, Fowler.
Comedian Bill Maher
Refers to Sarah Palin’s Down syndrome baby as “it” three times in a monologue citing why she isn’t qualified to be vice president and then ends with “Does anyone in that party understand the concept of pulling out?”
Comment: What can we say, really? We’ll just let Maher condemn himself.
