(First in a 2-Part Series)
The latest uproar about a sweeping pro-life bill in Texas has abortion in the forefront more ardently than ever. The chaos caused by the pro-abortion side has been nothing short of frightening and brings to light the very dark underside of the forces who march and rally for death. Sadly, this type of pro-abortion behavior isn’t isolated to Texas. Those who support abortion are rampantly prowling our country spewing a venomous hatred toward defenseless pre-born humans and those who support their right to life. They have moved past trying to prove that the unborn are a lifeless blob of cells or tissue and instead chillingly take their stand that babies’ humanity doesn’t matter in the face of ‘choice’ and ‘freedom’. So emboldened are they in their sordid pursuit of death, they defy reason.

7 Pro-Abortion News Stories Not Seen from Mainstream Media
1. Federal Agency Says Aborting Late-Term Babies Saves Money
The Congressional Budget Office (CBO), charged with ‘scoring’ all potential federal bills, has taken the shocking position that aborting babies after 20 weeks will save the country money. In looking at H.R. 1797, the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, the CBO comes to the morbid conclusion that a human life can be measured against cost to Medicaid. Granted, they use the figures that are presented to them – from sources likely to be hostile toward human life – but even considering this type of analysis should be repugnant to any thinking human being. Conversely, I’m not aware of any similar scoring that analyses the loss of revenue from all of the tax payers and working class employees who have been aborted in the past 40 years. Also totally absent from the equation are studies indicating the unborn actually feel pain at a higher rate than adults.
2. Abortion Activists Arrested at Texas Capitol After Pro-Life Bill Passes
Wednesday, after a prerequisite third vote, the Texas House of Representatives soundly passed a Late-Term Abortion Ban during a second Special Session called by Gov. Rick Perry. This was accomplished, despite Sen. Wendy Davis’ almost 11 hour filibuster against a previous version. As the bitterly fought battle played out, abortion supporters – bused in and paid – ramped up an unbelievable series of assaults on preborn human life. Shouts of ‘Hail Satan’ and ‘F--- the Church’ could be heard above the peaceful rallies, prayers, and singing of pro-lifers. The unruly mob was a terrifying sight even if only through live streaming available online. Photos shared by friends also gave a chilling contrast between the supporters of life and the forces of death. In the end, their volatile reaction to passage of the bill in the House culminated in several arrests being made.
3. YMCA Kicks Out Pro-Life Students Attending Texas Abortion Debate
In cowardly acquiescence to pressure by hostile pro-abortion forces, the Austin YMCA rescinded their previous agreement with Students for Life of America (SFLA) for the use of their showers during the #stand4life event held in Austin, TX. Brendan O’Morchoe, Dir. of Field Ops. with SFLA commented, “We had absolutely no problems on Monday night when we used their facilities. The YMCA management was respectful, but some angry pro-abortion activists were being very aggressive with YMCA staff members and the staff said they felt threatened”. As the group of blue clad pro-life advocates made their way to shower on the second day, they were turned away at the previously agreed upon time. Further updates reveal that the Town Lake Branch YMC unapologetically stands by its decision. The YMCA has a checkered past regarding abortion since they often collaborate with Planned Parenthood and support abortion rights.

4. Rachel Maddow of MSNBC Caught Lying About Ohio Pro-Life Bill
In a shocking episode of media deceit, Rachel Maddow of MSNBC has been exposed telling outright lies about a pro-life bill in Ohio. In relating budgeting details of the Informed Consent Bill, Maddow insisted that it included “mandatory vaginal probe at the insistence of the state.” This would add significant cost to implementation of the bill. Instead, the bill requires less costly and external transabdominal ultrasound procedure. Unfortunately, her claim went viral and many viewers of the cable news network will now be misinformed. Such irresponsible claims and lack of oversight of our news media today creates a vastly ill-informed public – making well-versed conversation virtually impossible.
5. MSNBC Panel Fawns Over Writer “Proud” Of Mother’s Abortion
During a panel discussion of the sweeping pro-life bill being debated in Texas, Beth Matusoff Merfish (NY Times writer) found overall approval of some troubling remarks. She declared that she was “proud” her mother had an abortion since “she had the wisdom and the courage to know that her own potential would be cut short by a pregnancy and to terminate that pregnancy and I think many of our mothers have similar stories and it is really important to talk about that.” I have no words!
6. New York Times Writer: More Women Need to Rejoice Over Aborting “Parasitic” Babies
The ever present search for making abortion palatable to the masses, Jessica Grose of the Washington Post-affiliated Slate news site, essentially opined that the left simply needs to make abortion a more joyful and happy experience. What happened to the rhetoric about making abortion safe, legal, and rare? Are we now expected to see the limb from limb slaughter of children as a warm and fuzzy experience?
7. Staybridge Suites, Quality Inn Offer Discounts for Women Getting Abortions
Unfortunately, even corporations are working hard to promote abortion and cater to the pro-abortion culture. Atlanta Center for Women’s Choice, advertises “providing pregnancy termination support for the entire family.” The facility, performing abortions to 24 weeks, has agreements with several hotels offering discount stays for ‘customers’ of the abortion facility. The list included here is disheartening.
Reporting (and reading) distasteful stories such as these is sometimes dispiriting (to reader and writer) but, if we are to fully take on the Armor of God and fight for these little lives, we have to realistically face up to the sinister way that abortion has been woven into the very fabric of our society. Only then will we be able to knowledgably face our foes and take back our country for the good of all God’s people. Viva Cristo Rey!
