Abortion Supporters Seek to Retell a Deadly Story

Abortion Supporters Seek to Retell a Deadly Story

Something is happening in America that is going largely unnoticed by the secular press. A seismic shift in public opinion is taking place on one of the most controversial issues in our culture today – and the proponents of death-on-demand are getting desperate.

New polling data indicates Americans are changing their mind on abortion. It's understandable, given the preponderance of medical evidence. Ultrasound images clearly reveal that a pre-born baby is, in fact, a human being and not (as the lie often gets told) a 'blob of tissue.' When that so-called blob is waving back at you, sucking his thumb or having the hiccups, it's hard to buy the lie. As a result pro-abortion advocates are resorting to some pretty creative (and deadly deceptive) ways of trying to support their cause.

Take for example, NARAL Pro-Choice America, one of the largest pro-abortion groups in the country. To try and shore up continued support for their political position, the organization, along with several other pro-abortion groups, is sponsoring a writing contest. Using the tag line, "Every choice has a story," women are invited to enter a writing contest that explains why they chose an abortion.

The writing contest is part of a "1 in 3" week of action that will include over 100 events in 32 states, starting in the nation's Capitol. The number '1 in 3' is taken from a pro-abortion advocacy group's theory that alleges that 1 in 3 women in the United States will have an abortion at some point in their life.

The story writing is a way for these groups to attempt to remove, what they call, the "stigma of abortion." We heard for years their cry to make abortion "safe, legal and rare." For a while, that slogan was somewhat effective in swaying those who were undecided on the issue. But the slogan has undergone a transformation. Now, the rallying cry is to make abortion, "safe, legal and affordable." Enter the debate on the new health care law.

Catholic University, based in Washington, D.C., is offering a class next semester to teach students how to advance abortion protection through Obamacare. The course, "Regulatory Advocacy: Women and the Affordable Care Act," encourages students to work with the National Women's Law Center, a vocal supporter of abortion. It should be noted that the course is being taught by a woman who is senior counsel with the Women's Law Center, which specializes in requiring religious institutions to provide abortion coverage and contraception. I'm thinking this might upset just a few folks at a Catholic University.

The pro-abortion crowd is also using the power of film. A new documentary entitled After Tiller, a documentary focusing on the four American doctors that perform third-trimester abortions, tries to create empathy with the viewer by including scenes where the mother is told to "hold" her aborted baby, take home its footprints and make a memory box. What's wrong with this picture?

The good part of this otherwise bad news story is that all of these examples prove the pro-abortion movement is handing on for dear life – and how ironic is that.
