The head of the National Organization for Women’s Morris County chapter is opposing a double-murder charge in the Laci Peterson case, saying it could provide ammunition to the pro-life lobby.
“If this is murder, well, then any time a late-term fetus is aborted, they could call it murder,” Morris County NOW President Mavra Stark said on Saturday.
Give me a total break. First of all, the two bodies were found in different locations. How do you consider a child found a quarter of a mile from his mother to be unborn?
If we even granted you an argument that the baby was delivered after the murder of the mother, it is completely asinine and inapproriate to make such a public statement shortly after such a tragedy. Ms. Stark, you and your feminazis are so damn repugnant, you can only focus on your pro-abortion agenda and nothing else.
Why do you call it pro-choice anyway? Call it what it is, “pro-abortion”. It’s not like you’re out protesting for adoption or foster care options…. no, you stake your whole argument on the timeframe which allows the killing of a child.
In the Democratic Party’s own platform, it says, “The Democratic Party stands behind the right of every woman to choose, consistent with Roe v. Wade, and regardless of ability to pay. We believe it is a fundamental constitutional liberty that individual Americans - not government - can best take responsibility for making the most difficult and intensely personal decisions regarding reproduction. Our goal is to make abortion less necessary and more rare, not more difficult and more dangerous.
First of all, conservatives do not argue the government has a right to interfere with personal choices, unless it involved the protection of a person. Just like the government has the right to step in and prevent the murder or punish someone for the murder of an adult, so too should they for children. No, you’ve come to realize your argument is a tough one to defend, but on principle you tread forward. It helps you to call it “choice” instead of “abortion”, or “fetus” instead of “baby”. It’s funny, because when someone tells me they’re pregnant, I tell them “congratulations”…. whether two weeks or nine months into it. Why do we say congrats to someone who is a few weeks pregnant? Because we understand that with the exception of an accident, act of nature or intentional termination of the process, a human will result. We know it’s not going to be a carrot, or a tomato, or a rabbit. We know, from the moment of conception, that nature’s course will continue to develop the child created at conception. You don’t hear people walking around congratulating pregnant women on that “small mass of tissues implanted in your body”…. but for your abortion arguments, that just what you call it, and it helps you sleep at night. (by the way, when was the last time you heard of a tumor, or a mole, or a gallstone growing into a baby?)
(by the way, the Constitution says “all MEN are created equal”, so in your literal world of calling it a ‘fetus’ instead of a ‘baby’, we could just as well say the equality clause of the Consitution doesn’t apply to you or the women you represent…. semantics can be a bitch, no pun intended)
In addition, you try to define a “baby” as one that is “capable of supporting itself outside the support structure of the mother”…. what about newborns who nurse? They are completely dependent on the mother and would not survive without the mother (or someone to help)…..something to think about…
Bringing up the abortion issue in this murder case was the dumbest thing you could’ve done for your cause. It shows your one-sidedness. It shows your selfishness. It shows your hypocrisy.
I just have one question to ask you Ms. Stark, when you’re sitting around a warm, cozy fire this December with your family enjoying Christmas, remember an unwed mother many years ago, subject to ridicule, wondering what would become of the mass of tissues inside her and ask yourself…..
What if Mary had been pro-choice?
