Palin: Roe vs. Wade 40 Years Later

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on January 22, 2013

Trig_SarahPosted to Sarah Palin’s Facebook page:

 

Forty years ago today the Supreme Court rendered its Roe v. Wade decision. Those who believe in the sanctity of human life and long to see America embrace a culture in which innocent life is honored and protected continue to look for a day when humanity is again deemed valuable, where we cherish even those who would be born in “less than ideal circumstances.” Children are our most precious resource and remain the greatest symbol of hope God has given us. This is just one reason why the annual March for Life has been such a powerful aspect of the pro-life movement. This year’s event is Friday, January 25th, and once again a multitude of Americans will gather in Washington, D.C. to show their support for precious little ones.

Our Founding Fathers declared: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.” However, since 1973, millions of children have been denied the basic right upon which all the others hinge: the right to life.

Lately, President Obama has taken to boldly highlighting children in his speeches. Using kids as the backdrop for his gun control speech, the President claimed his commitment to young ones. “If there’s even one life that can be saved, then we’ve got an obligation to try,” he said. He then outlined why gutting our Second Amendment is the means by which he believes we accomplish this. Every law-abiding citizen’s heart is broken when children are the target of men hell-bent on committing acts of evil, and we agree that the safety and protection of innocent life is paramount.

The hypocrisy of it all, however, is that while the President publicly acknowledges the value of “even one life” when it advances his own political agenda, he fails to acknowledge as much when it comes to protecting the lives of children soon to be born. In that same speech, he proclaimed that “when it comes to protecting the most vulnerable among us, we must act now.” Well, who is more vulnerable than those who find themselves at the mercy of others to honor their existence and receive them into our world? Are these—the truly vulnerable—not worthy of the protection of which the President speaks? Why is it that their cause is never the subject of one of his lofty addresses to the nation? Has he ever even mentioned the March for Life that takes place in his own back yard and ought to be worthy of at least a scant mention? If indeed we have an obligation to save “even one life,” when will we hear our President rally Americans to stand alongside women who find themselves in these less than ideal circumstances to offer the support they need, to encourage parents to choose life, and to promote the option of adoption? Instead, he has committed himself to the most liberal of abortion agendas—so much so that as a Senator he couldn’t even bring himself to support the Born Alive Act that would save the lives of babies ALREADY BORN and needing medical aid. Further, he believes taxpayers should betray their consciences by paying for his abortion agenda. This same President has stated he didn’t want his daughters “punished with a baby,” and remarked that it was “above my pay grade” to answer a pastor’s question: “At what point does a baby get human rights?” Yet now we are to somehow believe that children are the priority in his current aggressive campaign against the Second Amendment?

The President continued to herald his support of children in yesterday’s inaugural speech. “Our journey is not complete until all our children, from the streets of Detroit, to the hills of Appalachia, to the quiet lanes of Newtown, know that they are cared for, and cherished, and always safe from harm,” he said—and I agree. Nor is our journey complete, I would add, until all our children soon to be born are also “cared for, and cherished, and always safe from harm.” The President, of course, did not include this, as it does not line up with his worldview or his party’s platform. See, his commitment to our children is selective. When children in the womb are on the chopping block, the President is silent. When he places the Second Amendment, however, on the chopping block, children are his focus. Never mind the fact that his latest proposals would not protect them from evildoers and would, in fact, leave responsible, law-abiding citizens less able to protect them as well.

Clearly, there is no shortage of hypocrisy coming out of Washington, and this is just one example. Americans can expect to be inundated with rhetoric and doublespeak for the duration of this administration. It is truly Orwellian. So it is absolutely imperative that we keep our eyes and ears open; don’t allow yourselves to be sucked in or lulled to sleep. Our freedoms are being compromised, our common sense insulted, and our children exploited. We must be vigilant and engaged, and we must remain hopeful that a better day is coming.

The Truest Measure of Any Society

Posted by Adrienne Ross on June 2, 2012

By Adrienne Ross – http://www.motivationtruth.com

Planned Parenthood has been busted yet again, this time for actions that are not just unethical but inhumane. If they’re not taking donations to abort black babies, they’re issuing advice on how to commit fraud while aborting based on gender. Is this the United States–or is this China?

Bristol Palin posted the following on her blog:

Have you ever seen anyone actually happy about possibly killing an infant pre-born girl, even after admitting, “everything’s already pretty much developed?”

Watch this video of a woman who goes into a Planned Parenthood in Austin, Texas and tells them that she only wants to terminate the pregnancy if she’s carrying a girl.

Does Planned Parenthood condemn this or condone this “gendercide?”

Here’s the video:

Bristol adds:

Lila Rose and her Live Action team are fearless in taking on Planned Parenthood, so learn more about them here. After Roe v. Wade is finally overturned, they’ll be remembered as heroes in the fight for life.

I appreciate Bristol’s boldness. Too many don’t even want to talk about defunding Planned Parenthood, much less overturning Roe v. Wade. God bless her for standing up for the most vulnerable among us.

This week the House of Representatives had an opportunity to take a bold stand also, but apparently they don’t have the strength that a young woman possesses when it comes to an issue that matters more than any other: life. Unbelievably, the House rejected a ban on gender-selective abortions.

CNN reports:

Congress took up one of the most divisive issues in politics Thursday as the House of Representatives rejected a controversial measure banning abortions based on the sex of a fetus.

In the House, 246 representatives backed the bill while 168 voted against it, leaving the proposal short of the two-thirds total necessary for passage. Most Republicans supported the measure; the majority of Democrats opposed it.

Supporters characterized the proposal as a necessary defense of the civil rights of unborn children; opponents called it part of a broader so-called war on women and an ongoing assault on legalized abortion.

There’s an elected official trying to ban soda, but we can’t get Congress to ban abortions based on gender? Sick!

So the majority of Democrats voted against this ban because they see it as a war on women. Really? In the video, the Planned Parenthood employee took no issue with aborting a female, so who’s really conducting a war on women?

Planned Parenthood has reportedly fired the employee in the hidden video and has stated they oppose gender-selective abortions; however, they also opposed the legislation to ban such selective abortions and called on Congress to reject it. I am increasingly disgusted that my tax dollars go to Planned Parenthood. They shouldn’t get one penny of federal funds–not one!

President Obama joined his friends in the abortion industry and also opposed the ban. The Weekly Standard reports:

National Right to Life legislative director Douglas Johnson was upset to learn Obama opposes the common-sense bill, telling LifeNews: “It is appalling, but not surprising, that President Obama now stands with the pro-abortion political committees and his Hollywood donors, rather than with the coerced women, and their unborn daughters, who are victimized in sex-selection abortions.”

Of course, there’s no surprise in his opposition. Since when has he stood up for life? He wouldn’t even vote to provide health care to babies born after a botched abortion, but America has chosen him to lead. We need to wake up!

This morning, as I was reading my Bible, something jumped out at me. Exodus 1 in The Message translation reads:

15-16 The king of Egypt had a talk with the two Hebrew midwives; one was named Shiphrah and the other Puah. He said, “When you deliver the Hebrew women, look at the sex of the baby. If it’s a boy, kill him; if it’s a girl, let her live.”

17-18 But the midwives had far too much respect for God and didn’t do what the king of Egypt ordered; they let the boy babies live. The king of Egypt called in the midwives. “Why didn’t you obey my orders? You’ve let those babies live!”

19 The midwives answered Pharaoh, “The Hebrew women aren’t like the Egyptian women; they’re vigorous. Before the midwife can get there, they’ve already had the baby.”

20-21 God was pleased with the midwives. The people continued to increase in number—a very strong people. And because the midwives honored God, God gave them families of their own.

22 So Pharaoh issued a general order to all his people: “Every boy that is born, drown him in the Nile. But let the girls live.”

Clearly, the Lord was not pleased with the king’s decision to destroy those whom He created. In this case, the boys were going to be killed. On the other hand, God was pleased with those who honored Him by disobeying the king to protect life. The Bible says they disobeyed the king because they “had far too much respect for God.” I pray God touches our hearts and brings us to a place where we have more respect for Him than for the kings we’ve erected in our lives and the ideas that are accepted by man. I believe we will be held accountable, not only for the decisions we make that affect our own lives, but the people we elect to lead who make decisions that affect the lives of others–or whether others are allowed life at all.

Governor Palin has always had my respect and support because she walks the walk and understands what matters most. As much as she tackles the economy, energy, the size and scope of government, President Obama and his inability to lead effectively, she has never been silent on the issue of life. She knows that life is precious and worth defending. Perhaps this is another area in which she “went rogue” in 2008. This speech from the campaign trail is worth revisiting, and we can see that it is still fitting under current circumstances:

In this same spirit, as defenders of the culture of life, John McCain and I believe in the goodness and potential of every innocent life. I believe the truest measure of any society is how it treats those who are least able to defend and speak for themselves. And who is more vulnerable, or more innocent, than a child?

Yes, every innocent life matters. Everyone belongs in the circle of protection. Every child has something to contribute to the world, if we give them that chance. There are the world’s standards of perfection … and then there are God’s standards, and these are the final measure. Every child is beautiful before God, and dear to Him for their own sake.

[…]

I listened when [Obama] defended his unconditional support for unlimited abortions. He said that a woman shouldn’t have to be – quote – “punished with a baby.” He said that right here in Johnstown –“punished with a baby” – and it’s about time we called him on it. The more I hear from Senator Obama, the more I understand why he is so vague and evasive on the subject. Americans need to see his record for what it is. It’s not negative or mean-spirited to talk about his record. Whatever party you belong to, there are facts you need to know.

[…]

In short, Senator Obama is a politician who has long since left behind even the middle ground on the issue of life. He has sided with those who won’t even protect a child born alive. And this exposes the emptiness of his promises to move beyond the “old politics.”

In both parties, Americans have many concerns to be weighed in the votes they cast on November fourth. In times like these, with wars and a financial crisis, it’s easy to forget even as deep and abiding a concern as the right to life. And it seems our opponent hopes that you will forget. Like so much else in his agenda, he hopes you won’t notice how radical his ideas and record are until it’s too late.

But let there be no misunderstanding about the stakes.

A vote for Barack Obama is a vote for activist courts that will continue to smother the open and democratic debate we need on this issue, at both the state and federal level. A vote for Barack Obama would give the ultimate power over the issue of life to a politician who has never once done anything to protect the unborn. As Senator Obama told Pastor Rick Warren, it’s above his pay grade.

For a candidate who talks so often about “hope,” he offers no hope at all in meeting this great challenge to the conscience of America. There is a growing consensus in our country that we can overcome narrow partisanship on this issue, and bring all the resources of a generous country to the aid of both women in need and the child waiting to be born.

President Obama clearly has not changed, but thank God neither has the Governor. America, however, definitely needs a change in leadership.

Here’s the speech, delivered in Johnstown, PA:

March for Life

Posted by Adrienne Ross on January 21, 2010

By Adrienne Ross – http://www.motivationtruth.com

In 1973, America took a major turn down the wrong street with the Roe v. Wade decision, which granted women the right to annihilate their young, rather than encouraging them to embrace life. Today people all over are still mourning that decision, including the lead plaintiff in the case, later identified as Norma McCorvey.

That decision marked an incredibly sad day for this country. Americans aren’t, however, sitting in a corner nursing a defeatist attitude. No, many continue to speak up for those who cannot speak up for themselves. One way they do so is through participation in the annual March for Life in Washington, DC. This year’s march, which will take place tomorrow, continues that practice of fighting for those who are the most innocent and vulnerable among us–the unborn.

To those who are offended by this continued unrelenting effort, I have a message: we are not going away. More Americans than ever are now pro-life, more Americans are determined to support the sanctity of human life, and we will persevere by putting feet to our faith through peaceful demonstrations like the one taking place in our nation’s capital tomorrow.

Among those compassionate, unbending Americans supporting the cause of life is Governor Sarah Palin. Although she recognizes that at times women find themselves in “less than ideal circumstances,” she also understands that with the proper support and encouragement, women can find the strength required to rise above those circumstances having made the conscionable decision to choose life. Today she issued this passionate message called “Marching for a Beautiful Life” via her Facebook page.

Tomorrow the 37th annual March for Life will occur in Washington, D.C. January is a tough month to schedule a march in Washington, but every year hundreds of thousands of everyday Americans from across our nation brave the cold weather on the anniversary of the Roe vs. Wade decision to bear a positive witness to the culture of life.

In the years following Roe, we were told that the issue was no longer open for debate and that we should get over it and move on. But we couldn’t get over the stirrings of our conscience or move on from an issue that cuts to the heart of who we are as a nation. Affirming the dignity and worth of every innocent human life and defending the defenseless are fundamental American values. With that in mind, this peaceful, hopeful grassroots crowd of individuals, families and students comes to our capital every year to remind us that every innocent life is beautiful, precious and full of potential. These warrior souls come to show their dedication to the weakest among us: those with special needs, women without anyone to turn to, and children without a voice. They run the helpful pregnancy resource centers, the counseling hotlines, the foster care facilities, the adoption services, and countless other outreach programs that offer compassionate assistance and friendship to women who are struggling. I know from experience the joy and blessings that come from embracing life, and I know how important their work is in helping women choose life despite less than ideal circumstances.

The pro-life movement is pro-women, and it empowers women with the message that we are strong enough and smart enough to be able to pursue education, vocations and avocations while giving life to a child. This movement is largely run by women. In fact, many of the earliest leaders of the women’s rights movement were pro-life – women like Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Alice Paul, the author of the original Equal Rights Amendment in 1923, who said, “Abortion is the ultimate exploitation of women.” Today, more and more young women agree with these feminist foremothers, for they know in their hearts that the culture of life empowers women by offering them real choices. Unfortunately, rather than portray this positive message, the media often focuses on divisions among Americans on this issue. But this annual rally is not about anger and controversy; it’s about a huge grassroots effort to make our voices heard in support of women and their children.

Though I can’t be in Washington tomorrow, my heart is with the marchers. Those of us who can’t be there can still join them online at the Virtual March for Life. Please follow the link and join the tens of thousands of your fellow Americans who are already marching online. Together we can bear witness to the beauty and blessings of the culture of life.

– Sarah Palin

The Governor also tweeted twice on the subject today:

Affirming dignity&worth of every innocent human life&defending the defenseless are fundamental American values,so march peacefully&hopefully

Let us continue in our efforts to make a difference. They have not been in vain.
