Can we make grand compromises?

35 Questions

This is part 27 in a series of 35 questions. It is based on a series of questions answered by John Hawkins for here, and here.

27. Can we make grand compromises? Voter ID, but Early Voting/Nat. Holiday. Abortion restrictions but free birth control/welfare


There is nothing unreasonable about requiring someone to prove who they are in order to vote. I’m not a big fan of early voting or absentee voting, but I understand the requirement for absentee, especially in the case of our military service men and women. I have considered a national holiday for voting, but I think that simply requiring businesses to allow time for voting should be sufficient. I don’t think we need to shut the country down.

Abortion is murder (the premeditated killing of an unarmed, defenseless human being) and should be treated as such. Abortion doctors are akin to a hired hit man.

Free birth control isn’t necessary to curb pregnancy. It’s simply another program/service that someone is paying for. If you’re going to fool around, be responsible, and buy your own damn condoms. They’re not that expensive. If you fool around, take responsibility for your actions. In other words, if you’re not ready for the kids, you not ready for the sex.

Unless you’re married, stop having sex.

How does one square pro-life and anti-welfare?

35 Questions

This is part 6 in a series of 35 questions. It is based on a series of questions answered by John Hawkins for here, and here.

6. How do conservatives square a pro-life abortion policy with persistent attacks against the welfare state?

I have a hard time squaring the idea that these two things are related in conversation. Apparently, liberals feel that it’s justifiable to kill a human being that may be born into a welfare system. Is being dead better than being poor? Is that what you think about poor people? They would have been better off had they been aborted by their mother? Seriously, has no person ever escaped the welfare system? This isn’t a caste society. The two are unrelated, and it sickens me to hear this argument.

Killing an unborn, defenseless human being is wrong; regardless of the reason. The only permissible time is when the mother’s life, not her mind, is in danger, for example, in the case of an ectopic pregnancy.

The welfare system is wrong and abortion are wrong. Using one wrong to justify another wrong is evil.

Newsflash! Defunding Planned Parenthood Results In More Births!

Texas cut funding to Planned Parenthood, and the results are in.

Cosmopolitan published an article yesterday regarding those results: Texas Women Use Less Birth Control, Have More Babies Since the State Defunded Planned Parenthood

Mostly, this is a big duh. With Planned Parenthood out of the picture, common sense says that there will be less birth control because someone else isn’t paying for your pregnancy protection. Whether this is good or bad can be debated. Since when birth control is used correctly, within the confines of a marriage, then there’s nothing wrong with birth control.

Births are up. Again, common sense. Less birth control equals more births.

Which means people are having sex anyway. Which calls into question the intelligence of those having sex, who don’t want kids.

On the other hand, does more births mean less abortions? One can only hope.

On the other had, the article decries the "most highly effective contraception" options as not being available to low-income women. Whatever happened to condoms?

And why is it the woman’s responsibility? Why doesn’t she tell her man no, if he doesn’t show up with a box of condoms? It’s shared sex. Why not share the responsibility?

Catholics and Satanists United In Their Support For Planned Parenthood’s Important Work

In the wake of the undercover videos showing that Planned Parenthood is probably involved in the sale of baby body parts, an understandable backlash has developed. As Pro-Life protesters planned to descend on Planned Parenthood offices around the country, two unlikely groups have found themselves on the same team in their struggle to show their support for the abortion giant: Catholics and Satanists.

On August 21, 2015, the Catholic group, Catholics for Choice, issued a press release indicating their support for Planned Parenthood.

Women’s health clinics across the country will again be harassed by the antichoice movement this weekend. In response, Catholics organized to remind clinic staff that we stand with Planned Parenthood and support the important work they do.1

While Catholics for Choice were delivering cakes and messages of goodwill, members of the Satanic Temple of Detroit held weird rituals. Apparently,

many Satanists believe abortion is sacred and some participate in the procedures themselves. In fact, former Satanist Zachary King explained that participating in abortions is particularly important for Satanists because it is considered the best way to give an offering to Satan.2

So, what this says is that Satanists believe abortions are particularly important, and Catholics for Choice support the important work they do.

I wonder how the Pope would feel about that.

Left Pushes Anti-Human Policies; Surprised When Gunman Shoots Up School

Everyone is looking for a reason behind the massacre at Sandy Hook. They want to know how this happened, and why this happened, and they want to know how to fix it. They’re looking at gun control, mental health, violent video games, and movies. They’re looking for some cause to blame; a cause to get rid of. While mental health is certainly a place to look because it deals with individuals, it is not the cause. Everyone is looking in the wrong place.
