Abortion Lies Are Revealed

For whatever reason, I, like most Americans not affiliated with the democrat party, have not given abortion much thought. As a younger man, I was single and active in 1972 when Roe v. Wade was decided by the Supreme Court. Although, as a resident of New York State abortion was already legal for me and mine, the national ramifications of the decision made for a lot of discussion on the subject. I was aware at the time of a host of abortions, whether they involved my friends, relatives, ar friends of friends. At the time, before the spectre of political correctness permeated the debate, it was clear that the reason for the vast majority of abortions was mere convenience. Financial considerations were rare, as the Great Society welfare programs made any out of wedlock births into a financial windfall, at least insofar as the thinking of the involved people were concerned. Health or other threat to the mother was very rare. If memory serves, maternal convenience was the determining factor in just about all abortions of which I was aware.

Since then, this debate has become politically charged in a way that we could not have forseen at the time. All sorts of automatic politically correct responses to most questions are now common. If we are to trust the common dialogue on the subject, the health of the mother is a paramount concern. Now that new abortion polling data is available, the uncomfortable truth of the debate shows its ugly head. Most Americans, almost two thirds, believe that abortion for convenience should be illegal. Absent a threat to the physical or mental health of the mother of child, the vast majority of the American people would vote to ban abortion as we know it.

Now I understand why the Left is so adamant that this decision be made in the courts. They know full well that theirs is an unpopular stand. It is gratifying that most Americans value human life much greater than the radical lesbian Left would have us believe. This goes hand in hand with their professed desire to make religious belief and observance unpopular. behold, their Godless and anti-human agenda is laid bare, and the people reveal themselves as wanting no part of it. Bravo, Americans! Let Roberts, Alito, Scalia, Kennedy, and Thomas review this portion of Leftist coercion on our national debate. Take the courts out of the enforced paradigm of blameless infanticide. Let the people decide. It appears that they are prepared to decide the issue correctly.
