True or false: America is addicted to abortion. 2

By Tom Quiner

There has been a jaw dropping increase in the number of young Americans who call themselves pro life.True. America is addicted to abortion. But we’re making slow progress.

We can see inside the womb now. Technology has revealed the jaw-dropping beauty of human life from its earliest stages.

Nine out of ten abortion-minded women change their mind about abortion once they see the ultrasound of their daughter or son in the womb. Their humanity is unmistakable. It is truly love at first sight.

Our youth have become pro life. In six breathtaking years, there was a 9 percent drop in the percentage of 18 to 29 year olds who consider themselves pro choice.  In 2004, 54% considered themselves pro choice. By 2010, it had plummeted to 45%.

A group called Live Action films has exposed the corruption that permeates Planned Parenthood. The sleaze is so bad that Congress is investigating.

And the number of abortions in America have been slowly declining. So thanks to the ministrations of the pro life movement, our abortion addiction is trending in a better direction, even if it is agonizingly slow.

Planned Parenthood and the Democratic Party have a huge investment in the abortion industry. We are witnessing a dramatic political pivot.

It began in New Hampshire last month with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos’ insistent interrogation of Mitt Romney on the hypothetical constitutionality of banning contraception.

There has never been such a suggestion among Republicans. And yet, Mr. Stephanopoulos persisted with that line of questioning until the audience booed.

Of course, now we know why.

Mr. Stephanopoulos is a media lapdog for the Democratic Machine. He had been clued in to the coming Obama Mandate and was assisting Democrat’s pivot from abortion to contraception.

Political commentator, Dick Morris said as much on Sean Hannity’s show. When Sean asked if Stephanopoulos was under direct orders from his Democratic puppet masters, Morris was quick to react:

“Under orders. And I think, and now he comes out with this thing on contraception. They want to create the idea, and it’s no coincidence, that he came out with it after Minnesota and Colorado which was Santorum’s victories. They want to create the impression that the Republicans will ban contraception, which is totally insane, but they’re floating it out and they’re bringing it out there. And this move on Obama’s part was part of injecting that issue.”

Since more voters approve of contraception than abortion, the president and his party are cynically going to make that the issue in this campaign, even if it means throwing long time Catholic supporters under the bus.

If America is addicted to abortion, it is even more addicted to contraception, so it is a savvy manipulation of the voters by the Left. The plan is to get more abortion by using contraception as a smoke screen.

We need more brave Democrats coming forward in support of the right to life as penned by the founder of their party, Thomas Jefferson.

We need the party of Jefferson back, the party that espoused a fundamental right to life. The party of Obama espouses a fundamental right to abortion.

They have become the party of death.



Shame on Dick Morris 4

Dick Morris

Dick Morris is an interesting guy.

He was a political consultant for Bill Clinton who is credited with salvaging the Clinton Presidency through a political strategy characterized as “triangulation.”

Essentially, he convinced Mr. Clinton to move toward the center politically, embracing the best of Democratic and Republican ideas, after HillaryCare had damaged the President politically by pulling him too far to the Left. As a result, President Clinton eventually signed into law the NAFTA trade agreement and welfare reform legislation that his own party didn’t fully embrace.

From a conservative viewpoint, Dick Morris deserves behind-the-scenes credit for these legislative successes.

Mr. Morris was eventually disgraced and forced to resign after he let a prostitute, whose services he had engaged, listen in on his telephone conversation with the President.

Following his fall from grace, Morris emerged from the ashes as a conservative, becoming a fixture on the Fox network.  He can be seen on Sean Hannity’s show as well as The O’Reilly Factor on a regular basis.  He has been a vocal critic of both Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama in recent years.

I know conservatives who love him … and loathe him. Some call him brilliant.  Others call him “sleazy.”

Dick Morris has a keen political mind.  He articulates his positions in a highly entertaining way.  Love him or hate him, it’s hard not to listen.

That brings me to an e-mail I received today from Human Events.  The subject line was: “Dick Morris:  Do you hate Harry Reid as much as I do?”

It was an appeal to raise money for Sharron Angle who is running against Harry Reid for the Senate.  The letter, from Dick Morris, began:  “Dear Friend who Hates Harry Reid as Much as I do.”


I don’t hate Harry Reid.  I don’t hate Barack Obama.  I don’t hate Nancy Pelosi.  I disagree with them politically.  I will do all I can to see them defeated.  Their ideas on what is best for America are not mine.  Even more, I think their policies hurt this country I love.

But hate them?  No.

Morris sounds like a typical angry Liberal using rhetoric like that.  Have we come to the point where we have to hate someone if they don’t agree with us politically?

Shame on you, Dick Morris.  Republicans are better that.
