These aborted children were found wrapped in black plastic bags near the banks of Bishumati River in Kathmandu, India. Three were identified as boys, two as girls, and one was too damaged by their abortion to determine their sex. Eyewitnesses stated that the babies could be anywhere from 20 to 36 weeks old. This human atrocity sparked the formation of Nepal’s first ever pro-life organization following the tragedy of legalized abortion in India in 2002.
Stand up for human rights for ALL human beings, the first among them - The Right to Life.
Please don’t follow in the hypocritical footsteps of the pro-life movement in the US.
why shouldn’t I be prolife and how are they hypocritical? Are they killing their children?
As George Carlin once said of America, if you’re pre-born you’re cool, if you’re pre-school you’re fucked. Soon as the kid’s out of the womb, if hard times hit their parents (see: whole families going homeless in 2008) then as Rush Limbaugh himself said, tough shit kid, go find a dumpster to dive in. And I never met a pro-lifer who had a problem with this Then there’s the incessant war on contraception, even while nobody bats an eyelash at the government paying for viagra and penis pumps. And Arizona women being required to check with their employer to get contraception covered. And Hobby Lobby. And “Rape babies are a gift from God” and Texas’s backdoor attempts to stop women from voting. Pro-lifers in America usually support this and rarely if ever stand in opposition to it. And I never met a pro-lifer who opposed drone strikes or lifted a finger to take a stand against kids dying in the US bombings overseas. Pro-lifers are now almost entirely welded at the hip with traditionalist patriarchal politics. An irony, since Patriarchal Paterfamilias back in Rome used to kill unwanted children at will. Exactly like gynocentrism, patriarchal thinking is a utilitarian mindset, a sort of Diana/Luna schizophrenia that on one hand says “right to life!” and at the flip of a switch says “you and you and you are all expendable” - and the American pro-life movement, almost in its entirety, has a co-dependent relationship with this mindset.
I’m all for designating the unborn as persons with the right to life, but I wouldn’t go within a mile of America’s pro-life movement.
there is no war on contraception. You can still buy it yourself, not your employer.
"“Really, we should be afraid of this court. The five guys who start determining what contraceptions are legal. Let’s not even go there.”
This is a very odd statement from the House Democratic leader, given that the majority opinion flatly states that “under our cases, women (and men) have a constitutional right to obtain contraceptives,” citing the 1965 ruling in Griswold v. Connecticut, which under the right to privacy nullified a law prohibiting the use of contraceptives.
Drew Hammill, Pelosi’s spokesman, acknowledged that she “misspoke.” “Obviously the impact of the court’s decision is not to make these four contraceptive methods illegal – i.e. no longer allowed to be sold”, he said. “But the overriding point here is that the decision does in fact limit access, which is the key point Pelosi made.”
So again, its you who’ll havet o pay for birth control, not your employer.
While IUDs a pricy, due to doctor vistis and such, these contraceptives are cheap.

“And I never met a pro-lifer who opposed drone strikes or lifted a finger to take a stand against kids dying in the US bombings overseas. “
"I believe that sometimes war–and the collateral damage it brings–is justified. What the United States is currently saying to the world is that war is always justified if America is doing it. We are saying that our policy is now permanent war, which means constant collateral damage and the continued death of random innocents.
As an American, I’m outraged. As a pro-lifer, our policy of drone strikes is something I cannot abide.”
Why do Republicans not mind that the government pays for Viagra and penis pumps, but they lose their shit over government funding of contraception?
