Womanhood has been under assault by the Left for decades. Back in the 60s, it became popular to condemn women who wanted to marry and then become moms and homemakers. Feminist leaders and college professors hammered away at women, dissuading them from embracing the ‘prison of domesticity and the humiliation of subservience to men.’ Feminism launched a war that continues to this day, the war against womanhood.
A child of the 60s, Hillary Clinton weighed in on the campaign trail in 1992, snidely condemning traditional women while elevating herself: “I could have stayed home and baked cookies and had teas, but what I decided to do was fulfill my profession.” Her subsequent ‘profession’ became one largely devoted to lying and covering for her philandering husband, then attacking his female accusers and destroying their lives, truly a complete betrayal of women almost solely for the purpose of ‘fulfilling her profession.’
For all its good work encouraging women to look at all their life options, the terrible downside of the women’s liberation movement was setting men and women against one another, and setting women against their own biology. Procreation, once a sacred and honored aspect of femininity, became something to scorn, leading directly to the insistence on abortion. Having children obviously hampered the quest to ‘fulfill one’s profession.’ Where once women were honored as mothers for their nurturing skill and talent, they became hostile to their own special place in the human race–so hostile in fact as to turn on their own offspring and kill them in the name of liberating women, forgetting that half the babies killed in the womb are female.
From the beginning, in 1973, when Roe v. Wade (one of the first examples of judicial activism directly assaulting traditional morality) made abortion legal, the warning cry went up: this is the first step on the road to allowing the killing of all inconvenient life—-the handicapped, the injured, the elderly, and other ‘undesirables.’ Indeed, it was noted then, as it is now, the early leaders of the Planned Parenthood movement, notably Margaret Sanger, stood unashamedly in favor of using contraception and abortion to eradicate people of color, especially black people. So, is it any wonder that today black babies are aborted at tremendously high rates, and that clinics are located largely in neighborhoods primarily occupied by people of color? Hillary has said Margaret Sanger is one of her heroines, raising the question: do black lives really matter in her mind?
When the monstrous practice of partial birth abortion was debated and condemned in the 90s, it was simply more evidence that the slippery slope was nonetheless alive and lethal. Then, with discoveries babies were being killed even in late term, more alarm and resistance was raised.
Today, with the case of the butcher Kermit Gosnell, the warnings of the past are impossible to ignore. Gosnell, a former doctor, was convicted of murdering infants born alive during abortions. With revelations Planned Parenthood has been ‘perfecting’ techniques to harvest late term babies, and sell their body parts and internal organs, the warnings of the past have been exceeded by something unimaginable back then: a profit-driven machine dealing in dead human beings, murdered in the womb and parted out like wreck automobiles. Just so that we are clear, aborting babies for the purpose of selling their organs is a federal crime. Planned Parenthood officials know full well it is a crime; for here they discuss how to accomplish sales without getting busted. Even so, the defenders of abortion and Planned Parenthood insist it is a legal gray area. Morally, there is no gray area, as the majority asserts. In fact, a huge groundswell of outcry from the public is driving the movement to defund Planned Parenthood.
In the bloody wake of 55 million babies murdered since 1973, we now have women on video tape celebrating the macabre enterprise of selling body parts. We see women from Planned Parenthood cheerfully discussing the butchery and commerce surrounding aborted babies, laughing and sipping wine as they discuss ‘line items,’ ‘optimal procurement,’ ‘pricing,’ and ‘Lamborghinis.’ It is a multi-million dollar enterprise, subsidized by the taxpayers; yet Obama says no laws have been broken. (Just how would he know that even before an investigation has commenced?)
The war on womanhood has led us to reject our God-given roles as men and women. The godless Left insists we rely on our own self-serving and limited understanding, all to the destruction of conscience, morality and even common decency, so much so that the so-called saint of the Civil Rights Movement, Rep. Elijah E. Cummings, D-Md., has called for an investigation. Is he calling for an investigation into the criminal activity of Planned Parenthood? No. He wants to see about investigating the organization that blew the whistle on Planned Parenthood! Apparently, Cummings got a call from the White House, even as he is being investigated for the IRS scandal. It is a pattern: Cummings prefers investigating whistleblowers, not perpetrators. Also, so far as we can tell, Cummings is not concerned about black genocide being perpetrated by Planned Parenthood. Blacks are 13% of the population; yet blacks make up 35% of abortions. Never mind the destruction of the black family. At this pace, blacks will not exist in the U.S. in a few years. Source: Black Genocide.
The federal government has been actively engaged for decades in supporting the war on womanhood, and the war on black people, by actively funding Planned Parenthood. Through it all, Hillary Clinton and Democrats stand in solidarity with Planned Parenthood, using our tax dollars to finance the holocaust. If we do not stop them, we will be complicit. Not only that, we will have no moral standing, becoming just like ISIS, willing to slaughter the innocent to accommodate our selfish ambitions.
