The Cost Of Abortion

From Conservative Grapevine comes a link to a story about Zell Miller. He made the following comments-

“How could this great land of plenty produce too few people in the last 30 years? Here is the brutal truth that no one dares to mention: We’re too few because too many of our babies have been killed,” Miller said.

Over 45 million since Roe v. Wade in 1973. If those 45 million children had lived, today they would be defending our country, they would be filling our jobs, they would be paying into Social Security,” the former Georgia governor said. “Still, we watch as 3,700 babies are killed every single day in America. It is unbelievable that a nation under God would allow this.”

Of course it's debatable about what effect those extra lives would have had on social security, etc but that's besides the point. The really horrific thing is that 3,700 babies are deliberately killed each day in America. We hear a lot of protesting about the casualties in Iraq suffered by US forces- and even outrageous claims about the number of Iraqi civilians killed- but it all pales in comparison to that figure. It's just horrific.

I ventured into the comments but read only a small proportion- the pro-abortionists seem to be particularly hateful, demanding that Zell keep quiet because he must be mentally unstable to hold such views as contradict their own.

zell you bigoted racist! why dont you puke three times and die.

Zell’s mother along with Bargara [sic] Bush is one who should have had a abortion.

Zell Miller is a complete Looney Tune, no doubt the victim of too much corn whiskey and the ill effects of in-breeding.

And then there was this one that caught my eye-

Do you have any idea just how difficult this regime has made it to get birth control in this state and country now? Pretty damned difficult. Pharmacists can stand there and flat out tell a woman that they refuse to do their job and fill a prescription and the Republican legislature says that fine.

Of course, it's all the fault of Republicans...

I'm with you 100%.

I trust that the time is coming when all civilised human beings will come to realise what is plain to see.

With each new generation, comes the realisations of some of the mistakes of the former.

Something to do with evolution I suspect.

Many practices of the past are no longer practiced.

Abortion should soon join the practices of old.

Sometime in the not too distant future,
people will look back in disbelief and horror,
at many of the practices of today.

If only people would choose to use an effective birth control,
(or two).

They wouldn’t have to make another choice……..

Cash payments for using birth control…………..

I know their are a number of people who can’t use birth control for one reason or another.

But is that true for all types of birth control,
there are many different types to choose from,
surely one to suite most every-one.

I would suggest that the number of people that can’t use any of them at all would be very small

but many use this as their reason.

If a Chemist cannot adequately fulfill his role and fill every script written by a doctor then he should look for another job.
