|Curt Stoller commented on THE MOUNTAIN OF OBFUSCATION ABOUT MITT ROMNEY’S PRO-LIFE COMMITTMENT
I am losing my confidence in Mr. Romney. This latest revelation is so troubling that my confidence in him is at an all-time low. I am hoping that it will not come down to a contest between Mr. Obama and Mr. Romney. It is terribly sad when abortion becomes a merely philosophical issue. And even sadder when it becomes nothing more than a means to rally Christians to one’s political campaign.
The situation on the front lines of the Catholic pro-life movement are getting scary, at least in my city which “boasts” one of the few late-term partial birth abortion centers in America. Last week one Catholic sidewalk counselor was threatened with a gun. A SWAT team surrounded the clinic while the man was still inside with his daughter. Many people around here are afraid to even stand outside Planned Parenthood and say the rosary.
I noticed this week that one of the women working in the abortion “facility” has a holy picture or icon on her rear view mirror of a guardian angel watching over a child. I guess she doesn’t see the contradiction between that holy card and her “work.”
One very pregnant lady drove up to the back door where there is an entrance into the abortion part of the facility. There were two children with her in the car. Her children? Scary to think of it. She came out later with a little white plastic bag. This is the bag given to women after an abortion. It contains things like antibiotics and analgesics. All veteran Catholic prolifers gets sick feelings in their stomachs when they see these white bags. It means that the woman exiting did not just have an ultrasound or receive laminaria implants to dilate the cervix. The white bad means a one of God’s children has been murdered.
The sidewalk counselors are the last Catholics to see a woman before she enters an abortion”clinic.” They sometimes have only seconds to get a girl to reconsider killing her child. Their ministry is the most dangerous, in my opinion, since they often have their lives threatened. As such, there is always a shortage of people willing to do this. They also have to face the deceptive practices of the abortionists. Abortionists will often tell the girls and women that once laminaria dilation has taken place, then it is to late to stop an abortion, which is false. When sidewalk counselors try to talk to the girls, the girls will often say: “The doctor told me that it is to late to stop the abortion now and that I have to go through with it.” Absolutely false, but the girls are scared.
A former abortion nurse has said that she was instructed to make sure everyone entering the facility had an abortion, even girls who were not pregnant. If pregnancy tests were negative, workers were told to advise women to have an ultrasound “to be sure”. Most non-experts cannot read an ultrasound and so workers were told to point to any blob on the image and say: “See, you are pregnant. We can take care of this right away.” Sad, sad, sad. One 16 year old girl who was not pregnant had an abortion where out of her sight the abortionist did nothing. She later felt so bad that she committed suicide. It later came out that she wasn’t even pregnant.
I wonder if Mr. Romney knows any of this? It is clear that the President and his Obamunism totally disregards such truths. God help us!
