I had an abortion!

Posted: Jul 27, 2004 12:00 AM

Yesterday, a columnist for Human Events (unfortunately, it was not Ann Coulter) sent a link  advertising the latest t-shirt for Planned Parenthood. The text of the brief advertisement follows:

?They have finally arrived! Planned Parenthood is proud to offer yet another t-shirt in our new social fashion line: "I Had an Abortion" fitted T-shirts are now available. These soft and comfortable fitted tees assert a powerful message in support of women's rights. Order yours for $15 each.?

The columnist who sent me that link also asked ?what do you think about Planned Parenthood selling t-shirts that celebrate abortion??  Well, here?s what I think:

I think that the notion that abortion should be ?safe, legal, and rare? was never really the position of Al Gore, the Democrats, or Planned Parenthood.

I think that John Kerry is more honest than Al Gore. He admits that life begins at conception but still thinks that abortion should be legal. I think that John Kerry is a real humanitarian.

I think that America has been involved in an unjust war on the unborn for over thirty years.

I think that liberals are right when they say that a nation?s greatness is measured by how it treats those who cannot fend for themselves.

I think that I am lucky to have parents who are pro-life.

I think that many people who are ?pro choice? are glad that they were born before 1973. Otherwise, they might not be able to make choices.

I think about the night that my wife spent six hours with a woman who was having her second miscarriage. While the young woman was passing the fetus and writhing in pain, she was thinking about the two abortions she had previously. She was also thinking that she would never be able to have a child now that she wanted one. She may have been thinking about how she had been misled by Planned Parenthood and the Women?s Resource Center.

I think about feminists on my campus who violate the civil liberties of groups who wish to provide comfort for those women who need love and support, not condemnation. I think that they need someone who will share the Truth with them after their lives have been destroyed by the lies of Planned Parenthood.

I think about campus feminists who pass out condoms and put Planned Parenthood advertisements in every woman?s bathroom stall on campus.

I think about my failed efforts to get campus feminists to debate the abortion issue on our campus. I think about a North Carolina chapter of Planned Parenthood that declined a campus debate on abortion saying, ?It is our policy not to debate the abortion issue.?

I think about the early feminists, the true feminists, like Susan B. Anthony, who were steadfastly opposed to abortion.

I think about all of the abortion clinics in minority communities. I think that the next Martin Luther King was probably aborted years ago.

I think that Margaret Sanger would have been proud to see the genocide against African Americans that has been launched in the name of ?choice.? I think that she would be proud to see that this genocide is sponsored, celebrated, and embraced by the Democratic Party.

I think that those in Congress who voted against the ban on partial birth abortion should wear t-shirts saying ?I have the blood of innocent children on my hands.?

I think that Jesus Christ loved us before we were born. I also think that He was single for all of his 33 years.

I think about Clinton?s former Surgeon General, Dr. Joycelyn Elders, when she said that pro lifers ?need to get over this love affair with the fetus.? I think that Planned Parenthood has a ?love affair with abortion.?

I think about Planned Parenthood telling teenagers that having an abortion is just like picking a scab. I think about someone wearing a t-shirt that says ?I just picked a scab? in order to convey a ?powerful message in support of women's rights.?

I think about American churches paying for the abortions of church employees.

I think that Psalm 139 speaks with finality on the issue of abortion.

I think that abortion is the most important issue in the coming election. I think that is true every election year. In fact, think that abortion is the most important moral issue of our time.

When I hear college professors comparing George W. Bush to Adolph Hitler, I think about Hitler?s assertion that ?the demand that defective people be kept from propagating equally defective offspring? represents ?the most humane act of mankind.?

When I visit the Holocaust Museum in Washington, DC, I think about abortion.

I think that we are blessed to have George W. Bush as our president.

I think that by the time you read this article, our nation will see its 45,000,000th abortion since Roe v. Wade.

I think that pro-life groups should make their own t-shirts saying ?your mother didn?t.?

NOW you know what I think.
