Women Are Not Delicate Little Flowers Despite What NARAL and Planned Parenthood Think

    The organization NARAL Pro Choice America blasted Virginia’s Governor Tim Kaine — the chairman of the Democratic National Committee — on Tuesday for signing a bill that, NARAL says, includes state funding for crisis pregnancy centers. Essentially, if someone buys a “Choose Life” license plate, some of the proceeds would go to crisis centers.

    Women are not delicate little flowers who can’t handle information, despite what NARAL Pro Choice and Planned Parenthood tell us. They should have the option of having all the information presented to them before an abortion so they understand what they are doing.

    NARAL claims that crisis pregnancy centers — which exist to dissuade women from having an abortion — mislead woman. In New York, abortion rights groups lobbied Attorney General Eliot Spitzer to shut down such centers because they allegedly “scared” women.

    As a life-long feminist, I find this approach by so-called women’s rights groups perplexing and more than a little insulting to women.

    While I strongly support crisis pregnancy centers and am thoroughly pro-life, I wonder why they chose "Choose Life" as the slogan. Those of us who are against abortion don't believe in a woman's "right to choose" whether or not they end the life of their unborn child.

    I certainly understand the sentiment, especially in regard to a culture where abortion is available on demand, but they need to come up with a clearer and stronger message about the sacred nature of innocent human life.

    Unfortunately BB, in this day and age, we DO have a choice - a choice of life or death. I would certainly have a "choose life" license plate just to put that in people's minds.

    What I find sad is that PP and other abortion providers mislead the patients into thinking that what they are carrying is a "product of conception" rather than a beating heart, brain waves and fingers. My daughter and I went to the Bodies Exhibit in NYC and in the fetal gestation room, my daughter looked at an 8 week old "fetus/embryo" and was shocked. She said "Mom - if the girls having abortions saw this, they would realize just what they were doing." She's so right. Yes, crisis pregnancy clinics provide a lot of information for women - MORE so than abortion clinics. These girls/women need to understand just what they are removing from their bodies. It's not a clump of cells.

    We could make the statement that that's all we all are.

    Look, it is a very fine line in a culture that is fixated on death, to be able to cross that line in favor for death at any stage of life.

    Nothing new here!

    After all, we have chased God OUT ofour culture, so guess who has taken up residence in His place!

    And the more the new resident gets the people to agree with him, the more he will change society.

    'Fraid there's much worse ahead!!!!!!

    I used to have a sticker that said, "Equal Rights for Unborn Women."

    Classic pro-choice position is..... its not about giving women a choice at all. It's about limiting their access to counseling and options when pregnancy is a crisis for them, so that they think abortion is the only option. These groups care nothing about the mother who wants her baby, but is facing what seems to her like overwhelming decisions about medical care and delivery and how to gain or keep employment while caring for a child. These groups care nothing about the life...present and future of mother and child.

    Crisis pregnancy centers do offer support and channels for assistance to those in need and wanting to keep their baby or place it for adoption.

    The abortion clinics exists to make money no matter how many lives are terminated and destroyed: their gain is in promoting a culture of death.
