Another activist judge has intervened against the will of the people of the state of Alabama, blocking protections for children and women in that state.
MOBILE, AL (Catholic Online) - Judge Myron H. Thompson has blocked a key safety provision in the new Alabama health law that asks doctors to have admitting privileges at local hospitals in the event they cause serious injury to a mother during the course of an invasive abortion procedure. It's a common sense measure that doesn't actually restrict abortions.
Judge Thompson has blocked that provision of the law until March 2014.
Abortion proponents claim that basic safety measures such as these are unnecessary because abortion is considered "safe."
However, it is a medical fact that abortion isn't safe. Abortion kills children, scars mothers, both physically and emotionally, and has the potential to kill them Along with their babies. Despite the alleged safety of the practice, moms are killed in botched abortions. Few doctors choose to enter the abortion industry because of the danger and liability inherent in the activity.
Abortion mill advocates have screamed that paying for admission privileges would force them to shut down-a favorite lie of the industry. In other places where abortionists have admitting privileges, no clinics have shut down.
Indeed, abortionists claim that abortions are the least of the services they provide and are quick to claim that the bulk of their services have to do with women's health, such as breast cancer screenings and the distribution of contraceptives. These two claims, put together, do not even make logical sense.
The reality is that doctors who provide abortions make plenty of money and can easily afford the admission privileges . However, they do not want to pay for them because it would cut into profits.
This is very telling. Abortionists do not provide "services" because they care about their Orwellian concept of "women's health." Anyone who cared about women's health would not kill baby girls or subject adult women to chemicals, invasive procedures, and sterilizations, preventing them from experiencing the joys of motherhood.
Instead, these doctors are most concerned about their profits. How many abortion doctors drive the same cars most of us do, or live in our neighborhoods? Abortion providers are not exactly strapped for cash.
The most recent ruling in Alabama is just another in a string of setbacks for children and mothers across the nation. Despite the passage of protections that at least discourage the use of abortion as birth control, judges across the country are rolling them back.
The abortion lobby is very powerful and has gained support by indoctrinating the young into believing that abortion is a "right" and it is a question of "choice," rather than recognizing that it is actually a matter of life. Women are being convinced that children are inconvenient burdens and that it is normal to be libertine about sexual activity and that pumping oneself with chemicals that upset a woman's most fundamental biological functions is somehow safe and acceptable.
In reality, these women are victims of a satanic lie, perpetuated by a neo-patriarchy that treats women as objects rather than people, and convinces them that it alone has their interests in mind. Sadly, Judges, who should be wise to this, are victims of the lie too. And that makes hundreds of thousands of children and millions of women, victims in a very real and gory way.
