Congratulations to pro-abortion advocates for understanding the power of language and employing the art of propaganda to dupe much of the American public into believing that their motivation is "choice" and that abortion is "reproductive care." No mean feat.
Pro-abortionists are fit to be tied over the Missouri Legislature's approval of a bill that requires women to wait 72 hours after first seeing a doctor before having an abortion. Gov. Jay Nixon has not yet indicated whether he'll sign the bill.
The bill's supporters argued that women need more time to digest information they receive from a doctor about abortion.
But opponents of the bill, in keeping with the practice of pro-abortionists never to find any argument too preposterous to assert, said the longer waiting period would push women further into pregnancy before an abortion, which could increase their risk. Just two more days (the law already requires a 24-hour waiting period)? Come on! The current law and the bill contain an exemption in instances deemed by a doctor to be a medical emergency.
One opponent said, "The idea that a woman would not have taken this time already is insulting." Is that right? Considering how much leftists sanitize abortion, it's not as though balanced information is readily available to every pregnant woman considering an abortion.
I ask you, wouldn't those truly interested in promoting "choice" want to ensure that women make fully informed choices? If they had the best interests of women at heart, wouldn't they want women considering an abortion to be apprised of all the possible ramifications, including emotional and psychological consequences that many studies say could ensue?
How about the possible link between abortion and breast cancer? Pro-abortionists savage anyone who raises that question, but bullying is no substitute for science, and until the issue is finally resolved, you would think they would err on the side of protecting women. But you would be wrong because their politics compel them to ignore such studies.
Pro-abortionists also said the waiting period would constitute an emotional and financial burden and would force women to go to abortion facilities in neighboring states. We are talking about human life here, folks, and they're telling us they want to discourage women even from having to ponder, much less agonize over, the decision? Truly pro-choice people would not be so adamant about removing all obstacles and inconveniences to a procedure that terminates human life.
