Texas pro-choice forces desperate over clinic bill

July 12, 2013 

You can tell the pro-choice folks are getting desperate just by keeping up with what they're doing in Austin, Texas:

Planned Parenthood is ran an ad in craigslist for protesters and promises to pay them $1300-$2200/month; people are chanting "Hail Satan," drowning out those who are singing "Amazing Grace"; and women are dragging their old wire hangars out of the closet and waving them around as symbols of something that isn't even true.

Mary Calderone, former medical director of Planned Parenthood, said in 1970, "... 90 percent of illegal abortions are being done by physicians." I doubt they were using hangars.

Figures from the Centers for Disease Control show that in 1972 (the year before abortion was legalized), 24 women died from legal abortion and 39 died from illegal abortion, not "thousands" as Planned Parenthood and their minions would have us believe.

Further proof that women weren't dying of so-called hangar abortions is the fact that penicillin existed back then.

Sadly, women are still dying from "safe, legal" abortions, hence the need for clinic regulations, as deemed necessary by legislators in Austin.

Planned Parenthood chooses to ignore those deaths of women at the hands of poorly trained, sloppy abortionists who run their clinics without governmental oversight.

We get more attention in this country when dogs, cats, turtles, dolphins, or whales are abused. Oh, that's right -- they're innocent and helpless, unable to speak out, and they are protected by law.
