violence and the pro-life movement

By Diogenes (articles ) | Aug 08, 2005

Imagine the outcry if a prominent pro-life group referred to abortionists as "trash."

Imagine the furor if the group's literature included a "superhero" cartoon, aimed at youngsters, in which abortion advocates were exploded, vaporized, and tossed into boiling water.

Now imagine that the group putting out this literature received federal funding.

Can't imagine it? Of course not.

The group in question is not pro-life. It's Planned Parenthood.

    Reading the Planned Parenthood material and other related links leaves the ickiest feeling inside. It is like contacting filth that won't be washed away. Demonic evil ... the utter absence of any semblance of goodness. God is indeed merciful to allow such people to live and continue to abuse His gift of existence.

    Considering founder of PP Margaret Sanger's intent behind the abortion/eugenics movement, gotta love the fact that the horned heroine is a minority.

    Not surprising here. Mantras notwithstanding, PP's raison d'etre is violence. In order to protect the violence against children, they do violence to the original intent of the Constitution, they condone the violence of statutory rape, and they imagine violence against their foes. Prayer and fasting is recommended by the Master.
