The tyranny of the 8%

By Tom Quiner

You’ve read much about the one percent.

Have you read anything about the eight percent? Probably not.

Who are these people? These are the people who want unfettered abortion rights throughout pregnancy. They are the people who adamantly refuse to even throw a few scraps of human rights to the preborn.

These are the power structure of the Democratic Party, an extension of Planned Parenthood.

The survey above was conducted by Marist College Institute of Public Opinion a few years ago. Sixty percent of the nation are against any abortion except in the most extreme (and rare) circumstances. And yet we now have a system imposed on us by the radical 8%.

Time to take back our country, don’t you think?

    Comparing the 8% to the majority of Democrats (and to Barack Obama) is simply ludicrous. I hesitated to comment on this because I am a liberal Democrat and I don’t really expect to be taken seriously, but I sit here on a Sunday morning, preparing for church and listening to The Lord’s Prayer. I don’t fall into either extreme and most Democrats I know don’t either. Personhood is a touchy subject, as there are many different beliefs about when a fetus becomes a “person.”
    As far as taking our country back, I support Planned Parenthood because I know that they provide much needed services to many women and just because I personally don’t believe in unfettered abortion rights doesn’t mean I expect everyone to believe as I do.

      I do take your comments seriously and appreciate you taking the time to respond. I specifically reference the “power structure” of the Democratic Party. I agree that they do not represent all Democrats. I maintain that they don’t represent a majority of Democrats, and yet this 8% impose their might on the rest of us and especially on the preborn. Thanks again for commenting. Please come again.

    Abortion IS the business of PP … “the important services … ” are nothing more than an excuse, a justification, a rationalization of promoting death!

    The current law does not provide what the 8% believes in. There is no “abortion on demand” throughout pregnancy. There are different and progressively stricter tests for each trimester, which is how I believe it should be.

    To: Embattled Farmer: Roe Reality Check:
    Myth: “High Court Rules Abortions Legal the First 3 Months,”
    Fact; Abortion is legal through all 9 month of pregnancy. In Roe V Wade the Supreme Court ruled that abortion may not be restricted at all in the first trimester: In the second trimester abortion may be regulated only for the mother’s health. After “viability, ” abortion may be prohibited except where necessary to preserve the mother’s health.

    Roe’s companion case, Doe V. Bolton, defined maternal “health” as: “All factors–physical, emotional, psychological, familial, and the woman’s age—relevant to the well-being of the patient.

    Thus abortion is legal–and cannot be prohibited–in the 7th, 8th, or 9th, months of pregnancy if any of these reasons is invoked.

    No significant legal barriers of any kind whatsoever exist today in the United States for a woman to obtain an abortion for any reason during any stage of her pregnancy.

    To Southernhon: “The Capacity of human beings to justify their behavior, no matter how unconscionable, appears to be limitless. When the behavior consists of harming other human beings, degrading words serve as an extraordinarily effective weapon”. Dehumanizing the Vulnerable: When Word Games Takes Lives—William Brennan

    Parasite, useless eaters, human weeds, contents of the womb, blobs of tissue, are just a few terms used to de-humanize human beings in order to make their destruction more palatable. It really matters not that the word, ‘personhood’ is used to define an unborn child or a person laying in a coma on life-support or a Rhodes Scholar. The facts are these are human beings. Therefore, as such, can we agree human beings deserve our upmost protection and care?

    Part of the criteria used to justify the death of 54 million unborn people has been based solely upon their development and viability. I make this point because it is a fact that all human beings are at some stage of development during their entire lives. Therefore, to dehumanize someone based upon those criteria simply isn’t logical. That would mean that all of us are at risk, subject to termination based upon the whims of those in power over us.

    Hitler instituted and delivered a lie from Hell and what followed was the heinous murder of 11 million people during the Holocaust. In the United Stated abortion kills over 3500 unborn babies per day and since 1973– 54 million and counting have been murdered in the name of ‘choice’. If Planned Parenthood were seriously in the business of ‘helping women’ they wouldn’t prey on our youth and they would offer women in crisis pregnancies real hands-on assistance rather than the ‘choice’ to commit the most unnatural and once unthinkable crime: Kill their own offspring. But then, there’s no money in that.
