We don't need a reminder from faux feminists on the incredible value of women. None of us would be here without one. Motherhood made us all possible, including those who celebrate abortion.
Because these pro-abortion activists weren't aborted, they have the ability to promote any nonsense they want, like the Day Without A Woman strike. Yes. Remove women from the public space and the world will learn how vital they are. Wouldn't the same apply if we removed all the men from the scene? We're both needed. Liberal feminists don't want harmony. They prefer the sound of their own discord, decrying unequal pay, demolishing biological gender, and demanding that all humans (particularly the unborn) are not equal.
Imagine the real impact of A Day Without A Woman inside a Planned Parenthood? Now that would have reverberations for generations. Nobody would die. There are, on a daily basis, 888 human beings violently dismembered in the name of "choice" in Planned Parenthood abortion businesses across the country. No one ever dies inside of America's pregnancy resource centers, but millions have been killed inside our nation's population control centers.
Planned Parenthood, the lead partner in the abortion-centric Women's March and major propagandist for the "War on Women" hasn't yet publicly endorsed A Day Without A Woman strike. They apparently don't believe enough in the victim-based messaging that their own creation is touting. Planned Parenthood constantly beats the drum for "equal pay", derides any efforts to control illegal immigration, and paints a false and medieval picture of violence against women in America today. But they won't shut down their abortion mills on the 8th. They won't be taking their cut in (equal) pay, just cutting off human lives. The "strike" calls for women not to work (whether paid or unpaid) and not to spend money. Does this include spending money on elective abortions?
If killing innocent human lives makes us all "equal", by the way, why doesn't it apply to everyone? How is there "equal protection under the law" if women can do something that men cannot, or more accurately, that abortionists can do what fathers cannot. America's supremely wrong judges have interpreted the 14th Amendment with blatant discrimination. All sarcasm aside, "Abortion rights" are inherently unequal to those forced to fund it, to the fathers who can do nothing to stop it, to the women who are misinformed about it, and to the unborn (and occasionally their mothers) killed by it.
The (broken) heart of the Women's March is revealed by its complete devotion to the violence of abortion. President Trump exposed this quite brilliantly by offering to continue the funding of corrupt Planned Parenthood if it simply stopped committing abortions. Social media erupted in faux-choice indignation. The abortion chain's president, Cecile Richards, tweeted that "Planned Parenthood is proud to provide abortion — a necessary service that's as vital to our mission as birth control or cancer screenings." Well, except that breast cancer screenings (which bring in little revenue) have dropped a whopping 519,158 since Richards took over the helm at Planned Parenthood, now amounting to only 363,803. Abortion (which brings in over 80% of the abortion giant's health services revenue) has risen from 289,750 killed in 2006 to 323,999 killed in 2015. Obviously, cancer screenings are not as vital.
How about A Day Without A Woman demoralized and dehumanized by an Islamic theocracy? Linda Sarsour, one of the co-founders of the narrowly "inclusive" Women's March, is a self-described Palestinian-American-Muslim. For five painful hours, I watched the entire DC Women's March, via C-SPAN. There's nothing quite like American women, the freest in the world, decrying faux oppression as activists like Ms. Sarsour praise Islam — the most oppressive religion in the world for women. If Islam is so revolutionary for women, perhaps we should adopt a model of human rights from any Muslim theocracy. Any takers?
How about A Day Without a (Liberal) Woman perpetuating myths about unequal pay? The Department of Labor explains the gender pay gap has more to do with men working more hours, more highly-skilled jobs, and higher-risk jobs. "The occupational distributions of female and male full-time workers differ considerably. Compared with men, relatively few women work in construction, production, or transportation occupations, and women are far more concentrated in office and administrative support jobs," states the latest report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Isn't it significant that men work in more dangerous jobs where they are more likely to die? Out of the 4,836 job fatalities in 2015, only 339 of those victims were women. Men are 13 times more likely to die on the job. I don't recall any protests of the liberal Obama administration when pay for minority women declined every year (see our 'Equal Pay' graphic).
You know who doesn't complain about not receiving "equal pay"? Abortionists and abortion chain owners. Most of these individuals are men (ahhh, the patriarchy!) and many of them — like Kermit Gosnell, George Tiller, Irving FeldKamp, Nareshkumar Gandalal "Naresh" Patel, or Merle Hoffmann — are (or were) millionaires.
But it's not about real inequality. It's about being portrayed as victims even though real feminists have shown that women have been victors in every facet of American life.
Proving again how #fakenews loves advocating for victimhood-based liberal agendas, USA Today gave free ad space to the Women's March "strike" dressed up as a news article. No opposing opinion. No context. No journalism. Nowhere in the published press release, which claims to "promote issues facing women who are marginalized", is the most important (and common) role for women every mentioned: mothers. Talk about marginalization! Under the heading "Can men participate?", the activists encourage guys to help with "caregiving" and other "domestic chores". The propaganda piece doesn't mention children, at all, because that would remind faux feminists that there is something — someone — greater than self. As a father, I understand this and live this every day. I sacrifice all that I am, my own bodily autonomy, for my wife and children. My wife does the same for us. We don't view the world through the lens of division but through hearts that desire unity, mutual respect, love, and actions that elevate us all. That's more empowering than any Women's March protest could ever conjure up.
