Hollywood stars ignore current Bill of Rights while lobbying for a new one

Via Pro-Abortion Movie Stars Push New “Bill of Reproductive Rights” we find many more reasons to ignore actors.  They are eager to ignore the First Amendment in the Bill of Rights, so I’m not sure why they think we should care about their new list of “rights.”  

A who’s who of Hollywood is behind a new campaign sponsored by the pro-abortion Center for Reproductive Rights supporting an online campaign for a Bill of Reproductive Rights. The campaign complains about Republicans and pro-lifers who oppose the Obama HHS abortion mandate that forces religious groups to pay for abortion-causing drugs.

It is hard to fathom just how ignorant they are.  For starters, “reproductive rights” would apply to birth control, not abortion.  Abortions are specifically performed to kill unwanted human beings that have already been reproduced.  That is a scientific fact.

And note how aggressive they are about forcing their pro-abortion beliefs on others.  What happened to “pro-choice?”  When you insist that others must pay for your abortions then you are long past “choice.”

“Every day, the opponents of our fundamental reproductive rights are passing laws designed to take those rights away,” Streep says in a video for the campaign. “They’re shutting down doctors and clinics across the nation. They’re making it nearly impossible for millions of women to get the essential healthcare they need.”

Killing innocent but unwanted human beings is the opposite of healthcare.

The Bill of Reproductive Rights petitions call for “a full range of safe, affordable and readily accessible reproductive healthcare,” including abortion and say Americans have the right to “make our own decisions about our reproductive health and future, free from intrusion or coercion.”

They insist on the “right” to “make our own decisions about our reproductive health and future, free from intrusion or coercion” while using coercion to intrude into the wallets of those who disagree with them.  They pretend to want others out of their sex lives while demanding that we not only get involved but to pay to kill the innocent byproducts of their private lives.

The full petition reads:

“We the people of the United States hereby assert the following as fundamental human rights that no government may deny, and that our governments at every level must guarantee and safeguard for all.

1. The right to make our own decisions about our reproductive health and future, free from intrusion or coercion by any government, group, or individual.

In that case they should afford those same rights to the unborn.

2. The right to a full range of safe, affordable, and readily accessible reproductive health care including pregnancy care, preventive services, contraception, abortion, and fertility treatment—and accurate information about all of the above.

3. The right to be free from discrimination in access to reproductive health care or on the basis of our reproductive decisions.

These science-haters appear to be ignorant of the scientific fact that a new human being is created at fertilization. I’m too pro-science to be pro-choice — or pro-abortion, as the Democrats have officially become.

  1. If millions of American women need abortions every year, then there’s a problem, not with access, but with basic common sense and self-control.

    I also wonder if these people support the outcome of Keeler v. Superior Court of California, in which the California Supreme Court ruled that it was not homicide to beat a woman until she miscarried. I fully expect them to get behind a repeal of all foetal homicide laws and change the crime to “interference with reproductive freedom.”

  2. Any way they spin it, abortion is the killing of innocent babies…Remember SLED…Size: It doesn’t matter how small, a person has value. Less developed: a baby doesn’t have less value just like a toddler doesn’t matter less than an adult. Environment: geographical location doesn’t have anything to do with the babies’ worth. Dependency: we are dependent on others at various stages of our lives so just because the unborn needs its mother to live doesn’t mean it is worth less

  3. There are many correlations between abortion being legal and slavery being legal. They both devalue human life, place a human life in a position of ownership by another, and are blatantly morally wrong. In the days of pre-American Civil War slavery, there were plenty of people who made almost the identical arguments for slavery that today’s pro-abortion movement is making today.

    My hope is that people will someday universally see the truth of the moral depravity of abortion, much like the virtually universal understanding of the moral depravity of slavery.

    When thinking about those days, it’s easy for us to say how we would have done something different, how we would have taken a stand. Well, this is our generation’s opportunity to take a stand and to do something against the evil that is taking place in our own cities.

    The problem of abortion is not the mothers. The problem of slavery was not the slave masters. The problem is a lack of the awareness of a moral responsibility. Perhaps half the population of the U.S. might support a woman’s right to an abortion despite the ability to pay for it herself. But, less than .001% of those same people would assist first-hand in that abortion. Because, they know it’s wrong. They just don’t find themselves responsible unless they are the ones holding the knife. Regardless, the blood’s on their hands.

    Thanks for posting this and for continuing to be a voice in the wilderness. By your courage, you encourage others to take a stand.

    1. I knew a lady who wanted her daughter to have an abortion, so she asked someone one else I know to pay for it because she didn’t want the blood on our hands. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a more blatant example of what Jesus was talking about when he spoke of the sins we commit in our heart… without ever doing anything at all.

  4. Abortion may be a personal moral issue, and you are free to think of an abortion you might undergo to be an ‘evil’. But you have no legal right to impose your morality into the legitimate health care concerns of others – others just as capable as you in understanding the moral concerns of these decisions – without undermining the rights you yourself enjoy.

    Look, if you want to reduce the impetus to use abortion as a method of birth control, then support those methods that reduce unwanted pregnancies. Support free access to birth control. Support the use of contraceptives. Support educating our youth on these matters. Support open and free access to women’s reproductive health care. Support maternity leave. Support free health care and income supplements for these mothers with young children. The list goes on. And the reason why the anti-choice crowd needs to put their collective regressive head in a paint shaker and turn it on is because these methods actually WORK to reduce unwanted pregnancies while insuring the best possible health care coverage to mothers AND their young children.

    But, of course, when push comes to shove, the anti-choice crowd doesn’t want to pay the price for their imposed solution: they want young vulnerable women to pay the price for the anti-choice crowd’s religious tyrannical zealotry while hiding behind such notions as ‘protecting’ the Bill of Rights while advocating to undermine it in the name of divinely inspired morality.

    Streep calls you on it, on this hypocrisy in action, this coercive push to impose misogynistic practice on women. What is astounding is just how insidious the coercion of the anti-choice position when other women try to reduce the rights of their sisters thinking themselves pious rather than the incredibly stupid, arrogant bullies they really are.

    1. I barely have time to blog so I really don’t have time to address all the irrational comments of pro-sodomy/pro-gay/etc. atheists. But to be charitable I decided to let one through per quarter (so see you after the holidays!).

      Abortion may be a personal moral issue, and you are free to think of an abortion you might undergo to be an ‘evil’. But you have no legal right to impose your morality into the legitimate health care concerns of others – others just as capable as you in understanding the moral concerns of these decisions – without undermining the rights you yourself enjoy.

      All laws are tied to morality, so the “don’t force your morals on others” slogan is intellectually bankrupt.

      And of course, he forgets about the “others” that are crushed and dismembered because of these “rights.” It is ironic that those who supposedly champion “human rights” ignore the most fundamental right of all: The right not to be chopped up in piece just because some more powerful than you doesn’t want you around — http://tinyurl.com/yzjq4lv.

      Look, if you want to reduce the impetus to use abortion as a method of birth control, then support those methods that reduce unwanted pregnancies.

      I do. I support comprehensive sex education, which includes:

      – Abstinence is the best policy — See http://wp.me/p1wGU-bM and http://4simpsons.wordpress.com/2010/02/01/landmark-abstinence-ed-study/
      – The scientific fact (http://tinyurl.com/yfje8lq) is that a new human being is created at fertilization.
      – Gays have syphilis and HIV rates over 40 times the rest of the population
      – If you don’t have sex out of wedlock and you get a high school diploma then you are very unlikely to be poor, and you are likely to be poor if you do the opposite.
      – Planned Parenthood (http://tinyurl.com/6krdj4p) hides statutory rape and sex trafficking
      – Marriage is a union of a man and woman
      – “Over 70% of poor, cohabiting teenagers using condoms will be pregnant within a year.” — from Planned Parenthood’s stats — http://wp.me/s1wGU-70
      – Most birth control methods offer offer zero protection against STDs
      – No birth control methods offer zero protection against emotional issues
      – The pill and other methods of birth control can have serious side effects
      – Surveys demonstrate that married couples have the most satisfying sex lives.
      – Sex is “God’s wedding present” and great when used as designed
      – It is absolutely ridiculous for schools to dispense birth control. It sends the implicit and explicit message that you expect kids to have sex and that the adults say you should use birth control. Guess which message they will listen to and which one they will ignore?
      – Hey parents, how about supervising your kids? Giving kids unrestricted time alone with the opposite sex is virtually guaranteed to turn out badly.
      – Teach the truth about the “hookup” culture, where kids barely know each other and have sex. Girls participating in “hookups” are basically acting like free prostitutes. They have all the risks of pregnancy, disease, crushed self esteem, etc., but they aren’t making any money! Somehow they convinced themselves that they are proving their equality by acting like guys do. And of course there is the associated drug and alcohol abuse required to numb their minds to what they are doing. Sad.
      – How Sex is Like Duct Tape — http://wp.me/p1wGU-3fu (great illustration about chemicals, bonding and the pain of out-of-wedlock sex)
      – Abortion is a terrible thing to do, but it is forgivable. Go see your local crisis pregnancy center for free post abortion trauma counseling.
      – Post-abortion trauma is real.
      – You are much more likely to divorce and be in abusive relationships if you have sex out of wedlock and especially if you live together.
      – And more facts just like that!

      Support free access to birth control.

      Democrats assume that includes abortifacients, but those aren’t contraception, they are abortions. Technically, abortions might be considered “birth control” but only in the most morbid and perverse way imaginable.

      Free birth control does not reduce abortions. Look at Planned Parenthood’s own stats and see how high the failure rates are for teens vs. adults.

      Support the use of contraceptives. Support educating our youth on these matters.

      I do support education, as noted above. I just tell the truth and the whole truth, while you spread lies, pain and disease.

      Support open and free access to women’s reproductive health care.

      Abortion isn’t reproductive health care. The humans have already reproduced.

      Support maternity leave.

      Who says I oppose that? Moms should stay home with their kids, at least until they are in school.

      Support free health care and income supplements for these mothers with young children.

      It is never really free. Once again, Liberals fail at basic economics — http://tinyurl.com/2cvlrdq

      The list goes on. And the reason why the anti-choice crowd needs to put their collective regressive head in a paint shaker and turn it on is because these methods actually WORK to reduce unwanted pregnancies while insuring the best possible health care coverage to mothers AND their young children.

      Why do you insist that we get so intimately involved in the lives of others? If you didn’t teach people that they could do whatever they wanted without consequences then they would make better decisions.

      And yes, I am anti-choice — that is, anti-choice to kill innocent but unwanted human beings.

      But, of course, when push comes to shove, the anti-choice crowd doesn’t want to pay the price for their imposed solution: they want young vulnerable women to pay the price for the anti-choice crowd’s religious tyrannical zealotry while hiding behind such notions as ‘protecting’ the Bill of Rights while advocating to undermine it in the name of divinely inspired morality.

      Please preach more to be about vulnerable people!! http://tinyurl.com/yzjq4lv

      Streep calls you on it, on this hypocrisy in action, this coercive push to impose misogynistic practice on women.

      Yeah, I’m so misogynistic that I oppose gender-selection abortions and you support them. You know, the ones that kill females for the sole reason that they are female.

      And you help Planned Parenthood hide statutory rape and sex trafficking. Tell me more about my misogyny.

      And I donate time and money to crisis pregnancy centers that help women in need. Tell me more about the misogyny of all the female workers and volunteers at the clinic.

      What is astounding is just how insidious the coercion of the anti-choice position when other women try to reduce the rights of their sisters thinking themselves pious rather than the incredibly stupid, arrogant bullies they really are.

      Bullies? Heh. Abortion is the ultimate bullying: Literally destroying the weakest members of society. And you are the worst kind of bully: Baiting young people into the physical and emotional pain caused by out of wedlock sex, then forcing pro-lifers to pay to kill the unborn. That’s a special kind of sickness you’ve got there.

    2. P.S. Tildeb says that [alleged] echo chambers (read: blogs that moderate crank comments) are morally wrong, but that it is a moral good to force people, at the point of a gun, to pay others to crush and dismember innocent but unwanted human beings.

      I humbly disagree.

  6. Would that the Left simply revered the original Bill of Rights. I’m the opposite…I think it didn’t go far enough. I’d like nothing more than to strip out that “well regulated militia” line in the 2nd Amendment. It meant a disciplined force among the general population, but too many people today think it refers to the National Guard and means “covered with lots of laws.”

    Then again, I often think our Founders should have found a way to make the Articles of Confederation work, so consider the source…
