Pro-Life Article Merely a Pro-Abortion Tactic?

The head of the National Right to Life Committee is suggesting a recent article implying the abortion movement has been losing ground since a landmark Supreme Court ruling 40 years ago may be just a ploy to rally that movement’s activists.

time_magazine_coverTIME magazine cover (Jan. 14, 2013)In her cover article for this week’s issue of TIME magazine, staff writer Kate Pickert makes the case that while pro-abortion forces won their victory in 1973 (in Roe v. Wade), they may have been losing the battle ever since.

“Thanks to prenatal ultrasound, Americans now understand what a fetus looks like and that babies born as early as 24 weeks can now survive,” Pickert writes in the article. She also states: “… At the state level, abortion-rights activists are unequivocally losing. These laws make it harder every year to exercise a right heralded as a crowning achievement of the 20th century women’s movement.”

Carol Tobias, president of the National Right to Life Committee, cautions the public not to be misled into thinking the liberal news magazine is now pro-life. She believes TIME’s article may have simply been pro-abortion strategy.

    I didn’t think it could get worse than partial birth abortion. Until Obeyme ran and I learned about infanticide.

    Given these, how, exactly, have they been “losing” ever since?

    Well of course it is! It’s what they do. Tell me…who was the guy who whined from the cabin of Air Force One about being outspent by his opponent all last Fall? to hear them tell it, these people are always on the verge of destruction at the hand of the Conservative Juggernaut, so send 3 dollars.

    The trouble for them here is I don’t think they’ll be able to buy or lie their way back into favor real soon. It is just now dawning on some Lefties that they have been incrementalized from the Right on abortion, and they, too, can lose battles in the culture war.

    I read about a page and half of the tripe (in the Time magazine they keep sending me for free). It was basically a call to arms for Pro Murder of the Unborn on Demand crowd.

    I couldn’t understand their reasoning for why unborn children have to be put to death – something having children will make you poor. Which strikes me as strange since I thought people still adopt babies (and a lot of couples are desperate to do so). Also, it fails to ask the question of what is the cost to one’s soul of killing thier own child before it is born.

    These laws make it harder every year to exercise a right heralded as a crowning achievement of the 20th century women’s movement.” Abortions are down? Maybe PP is just running out of black children to kill.

    Anything that communist rag publishes aside from it’s name and address is a lie or obfuscation.

    There are some things the Left will never acknowledge:

    “I’m Norma McCorvey, the former Jane Roe of the Roe vs. Wade decision that brought ‘legal’ child killing to America. I was persuaded by feminist attorneys to lie; to say that I was raped, and needed an abortion. It was all a lie. Since then, over 50 million babies have been murdered. I will take this burden to my grave.
    Please, don’t follow in my mistakes. DO NOT vote for Barack Obama. He murders babies.”

    The left has gone from “right to choose” to “pro abortion?” I thought the whole brouhaha was about giving women the right to choose – not force them into having an abortion. Informed choice would seem to be better than just choice.

    Many of the laws being passed seem designed to give women information regarding the abortion process – how can information be a bad thing? Shouldn’t a woman considering an abortion look at an ultrasound and determine for herself whether or not that “clump of cells” really looks like a baby? No, the left just likes killing babies (but don’t use a gun!), and any information regarding the viability or humanity of a fetus at any particular state is verboten.

    Yeah right. Tell it to the 54,000,000 or so babies that have been aborted since 1973.

    These laws make it harder every year to exercise a right heralded as a crowning achievement of the 20th century women’s movement.

    As opposed to the anti-gun laws that you liberals demand that make it harder every year to exercise a right heralded as a crowning achievement in our Constitution’s Bill of Rights.

    Just remember, Sweetie. If our right to keep and bear arms goes away with a flick of a presidential digit, then your “right” to murder innocent, unborn, defenseless babies can go away too. Because there will be no guns to defend those stolen rights.
