Agreement

I am in agreement that it takes more than overturning a puppet; puppet masters are often behind much oppression and exploitation. Very powerful blogsite; I see that the "post-er" has much passion and opinion. What else begins change than those with passion, fire, and determination? I commend your mission to raise awareness and work for change.

frontline: the last abortion clinic

Thanks for reminding me to watch that Frontline - I'd missed it last week when it was on.

On the Frontline page they show a sign that says, "PRAY FAST FOR GOD TO END ABORTION"...

That seems to suggest that if God could end abortion, then he's the one who started it. It seems to give the impression that these people do not believe they're doing God's bidding, but instead appealing to God for what THEY want...

And that imposing rules on the abortion clinics in the name of women's health protection is so ludicrous... I mean requiring an "attractive setting"????

And then with a clinic that already has a transfer protocol with the local hospital for emergencies, is required to have doctors that have admitting priviliges, and that means the doctors must live in the city/state, which if they do, they get harrassed by these people who have pushed these laws.

Seems rather under handed & manipulative to me - not very democratic. It's like "okay, we can't seem to get our way fair & square, so we'll cheat and make people miserable, and undermine people's lives in the process, so there".

And even worse the people who are against abortion, are also usually against birth control, and against public assistance welfare, and against public medical services to the poor... It's like they just want women to have children, and then have them both starve, in the street, with poor health.

And they call themselves people of good will?

I'm not keen on abortions, per se, but even I see that doing this kind of crap, or trying to outlaw abortion, is frought with problems and an unmanageable situation.

I think you nailed the irony

... of the "pro-life" position.
