The New “Anti-Choice” Movement

January 16th, 2012 |

Thanks to Bob Walker, President of the Population Institute, for the following article. See here: http://us1.campaign-archive2.com/?u=34c8251342e0f59c19bee1935&id=a7eab17ae0&e=78ddd0303a

The New “Anti-Choice” Movement

Thank you, Rick Santorum, for clarifying what it means today to be “anti-choice.”  Historically that label has been applied to those who would deny women the right to an abortion.  Now the whole world knows that an increasing number of social conservatives are not just anti-abortion; they are avidly anti-contraception as well.

For years, even decades now, many social conservatives have justified their opposition to family planning by linking it to abortion, but within the past year it’s been increasingly clear that they are also opposed to contraception.

When Rick Santorum said last week that he thought states should have the power to ban family planning, he wasn’t saying anything new.  He had been saying it all along; most of us just weren’t listening.  Apparently, he has always believed in the “dangers of contraception.”

If the polls can be believed, Rick Santorum’s political ascendancy is about to crash, but “pro-choice” advocates should be forever thankful to him for putting the religious right’s hostility toward contraception into full public view.

    It seems that the poor old USA does not have a prayer in the environmental stakes. On one hand you have the liberals and Democrats who are hooked on population boosting through mass immigration and the religious right and the Republicans hooked on population through mass domestic breeding programs. I feel sorry for the remnants of the US flora and fauna and their dwindling habitat!

    Thank you for forwarding this article exposing Rick Santorum, Mitt Romney and Rick Perry’s so called social conservative position on contraception and abortion. during the Iowa Caucus campaign helping Ron Paul http://www.ronpaul2012.com making thousands of phone calls on his behalf I surmised:

    From personal observation on the ground

    None of these candidates and their followers apparently knows the Jesus of my understanding, whose way I hold dear.

    Half of the folks who turn out for the Iowa Republican Caucuses consider themselves to be social conservatives. Half of those are essentially one issue voters and they gave Rick Santorum his near victory with one quarter of the vote there. Rick Perry and Michele Bachman and Mitt Romney hold nearly identical views on this divisive subject and were set to split the vote giving Ron Paul the victory but in the last two weeks influential pastors met and conspired to preach from the pulpit to influence their flocks to coalesce around a single candidate, Rick Santorum in order to keep the evil Mormon (Romney) and the defender of Constitutional Liberty (Ron Paul) from achieving victory.

    It didn’t play as well in New Hampshire but don’t be surprised if a similar outcome occurs in South Carolina.

    Following is the tagline that goes out with all my personal e-mails,

    Radiant Uriel, Flame of God, May thy fiery glance penetrate our darkest corners, revealing to us ourselves, as you stand at the edge of the abyss, pointing heavenward and pointing down. May we heed the voice of one crying in the wilderness, “Change your way of thinking for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”
