Clearing the Smoke and Exposing the Mirrors

In a recent press release, Planned Parenthood's president and CEO, Sarah Stoesz, made clear that for her organization, the debate about Referred Law 6 wasn't about anything but maintaining the abortion-on-demand status quo.
“This historic vote ensures that the women of South Dakota will continue to have the same access to safe, legal reproductive health care that other woman across the country have. Planned Parenthood will proudly continue to provide reproductive health care to the women of South Dakota.” (emphasis added)
As you can see by Stoesz' own admission, Planned Parenthood is proud that they abort more than 800 unborn children in South Dakota each year. Very clearly, it is not about the 1.8% of abortions that are performed on women who have conceived in rape or incest, as they claimed throughout the campaign. It is about perpetuating abortion as a means of birth control "that women across the country have."

Stoesz continued,
“We had a coalition of men and women, faith leaders, business professionals and healthcare professionals that came together and sent a strong message to their legislators...." (emphasis added)
Of course, the "faith leaders" who take a stand against abortion are told that the "church" is to stay out of the abortion debate. They are cast as religious zealots who are trying to impose their will upon the rest of the world.

In spite of the best efforts of Planned Parenthood, NARAL, and a bevy of pro-abortion activists and Hollywood elites who made contributions to the Campaign for (un)Healthy Families, Referred Law 6 garnered 44.4% support. Although it did not gain the majority we had hoped for, we still saw major progress in terms of the debate. Those in the abortion business were not able to make arguments that refuted the humanity of the unborn. After all, science is not on their side. They did not try to make a case that abortion is ever even necessary. Rather, they were left to argue in what cases abortion is "acceptable" in order to prevail at the polls.

As for the Planned Parenthood press release, I appreciate their willingness to speak freely now that the campaign is over. It helps to clear the smoke and expose the mirrors that they hid behind during the campaign.

Take heart, though, South Dakota. Blue skies ahead....

Yeah, tell the voters, "We just need to keep this option open to rape and incest victims...." then when they cast their vote you take it as "a ringing endorsement of Roe vs. Wade."

How can you tell the PP spokeswoman is lying? Her lips are moving.

Oh, and might I recommend links remembering the women the abortion advocates like to forget: Yvonne Mesteth and Linda Padfield, who died under the tender care of South Dakota abortionist Benjamin Munson.

It is shocking that the media didn't report the glaring two-step the un-healthy family group took.

A few days ago, the Washington Post reported some very bad news from South Dakota for abortion rights, freedom of speech, and the integrity of the doctor-patient relationship:

In a victory for antiabortion forces, doctors in South Dakota are now required to tell a woman seeking an abortion that the procedure "will terminate the life of a whole, separate, unique living human being."

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 8th Circuit last week lifted a preliminary injunction that prevented the language from taking effect. A spokesman for Planned Parenthood, which runs the state's only abortion clinic, said doctors will begin reciting the script to patients as early as this week. ...

The doctors' script that officially took effect Friday has been tied up in court since 2005, when Planned Parenthood challenged a law that instructed physicians what to tell abortion patients. Under the law, doctors must say that the woman has "an existing relationship" with the fetus that is protected by the U.S. Constitution and that "her existing constitutional rights with regards to that relationship will be terminated." Also, the doctor is required to say that "abortion increases the risk of suicide ideation and suicide."

The message must be delivered no earlier than two hours before the procedure. The woman must say in writing that she understands.
