‘Legitimate Life’: Planned Parenthood Promotes "Post-Birth Abortion"

By David Steinberg

A Florida Planned Parenthood official just stood in front of the Florida legislature to advance the argument that perhaps some life is at the whim of the living — “legitimate life,” for a perfectly representative description of her argument; there is no daylight between her testimony and an advocacy of decriminalizing murder.

If a child brought into the world under such circumstances is unworthy of life via the intentions of the mother, logic dictates that the child would be placed in such limbo indefinitely, until such time as the mother chooses to kill it. Two minutes later, twenty-five years later: if this monstrous woman could shape a society according to her testimony, then the mother would necessarily have a permanent right to slaughter her child.

Further: changing her mind, at any point, would change nothing.

If the mother decided she no longer wished the child to be dead, the logic of this “Legitimate Life” testimony — that some life is at the whim of the living — requires that the mother could always change her mind once again.

Which brings us to this: a government-funded organization just sent a representative to testify that she is not entirely sure a mother does not have an inalienable right to murderthe president whose administration funds her organization has expressed the exact same sentiments, and in fact voted on them — several times.

An honest culture, an honest media would consider this distinction:
– Todd Akin expressed an opinion supported by no one of his party, that was a part of no platform, that virtually no one alive had ever heard expressed before, whereas …

– This demon in Florida is not the first to equivocate on murder; she has an ally in a high place, and belongs to a billion-dollar organization that has equivocated on “legitimate life” frequently and publicly.
One of these incidents deserves a national conversation — especially during the trial of Kermit Gosnell, a man who actually acted on the theory of “legitimate life,” and likely murdered hundreds.

But the other one got it.



1.  "Post-birth abortion" is murder in ever jurisdiction in the United States and nearly every country on the planet...and, I'm being "conservative" by saying "nearly every country" because the truth is I cannot think of one off of the top of my head and do not feel like looking for the "black swan."   

We can debate forever whether life begins at conception, but only the Joseph Mengeles of the world would dare argue that a human being that is alive and outside the womb is not a life.  If pro-choice advocates want to see Roe v Wade overturned, then they should argue ardently and loudly for "post-birth abortion."  They will do for abortion what Fred Phelps has done for gay rights.  If they believe that "there is no turning back," repulse society to such a shocking degree and see what happens.  Also, if I may, please educate yourselves on the period preceding the Victorian Era.  The rigidity and prudery of the Victorian Era was a direct result of the hedonism and savagery of the Georgian and Regency periods.  The pendulum swung so wildly precisely because the left went so far beginning with the French Revolution.

2.  I fervently called for Akin to withdraw and condemned, without reservation, his comments, as I did those made this week by the former president and current board member of the Steubenville NAACP, Royal Mayo, who said that the victim of rape wasn't a victim of anything and had consented by getting drunk and going to a party at 3 AM.

3.  Questions for ghouls:

A.   If a woman “owns” her womb, does she also “own” her other organs?  If so, can she legally sell them in the United States?

B.  If a mum's intent controls and she owns the "foetus," does she also own the "post-birth foetus"?  If so, can she sell it?  Wouldn't that make the "post-birth foetus" akin to Dred Scott, i.e., property/a slave?

C.  Two women are in a car in Florida. Both are 5 months pregnant. The driver, who plans to keep her baby, is driving her friend to an abortion clinic to have an abortion. A drunk, Comrade Alan Grayson runs a red light and hits the car in which both women are riding. Both women survive.
Both foetuses are aborted naturally.
Fla. Stat. Ann. § 316.193 defines DUI manslaughter to include the death of an unborn, quick child.

Should Comrade Alan Grayson be charged with one or two counts of DUI manslaughter?
Remember, one woman was on her way to kill her “collection of cells.”
D.  On 11 May 2010, Danny Ray Poplin, Jr, was sentenced to 50-years-to-life for a  murder conviction.  The victim was the approximately 6 month-old foetus carried by his girlfriend.  He was not convicted of foetal homicide, which is a different crime.  He was convicted of first-degree murder.
Unlike the case of Scott Peterson, who was convicted of two counts of first-degree murder for killing both his wife, Lacy, and his nearly full-term, unborn son, Connor, Mr Poplin's girlfriend did not die.  Indeed, she testified during the trial and was present in the courtroom for sentencing.
Mr Poplin will begin serving his sentence for first-degree murder once he completes serving the 12 years that were levied upon him for injury and assault with a deadly weapon (a 13-inch butcher knife that he twice plunged into his pregnant girlfriend’s belly to terminate a life he mistakenly thought was born of an affair). 
Now, before any of you start screaming:  This is an actual case.  It did not occur in the Bible Belt; rather, it took place in California. 
California Penal Code 187.

(a) Murder is the unlawful killing of a human being, or a fetus, with malice aforethought.

(b) This section shall not apply to any person, who commits an act that results in the death of a fetus, if   any of the following apply:

1.    The act complied with the Therapeutic Abortion Act, Article 2 (commencing with Section 123400) of Chapter 2 of Part 2 of Division 106 of the Health and Safety Code.

2.       The act was committed by a holder of a physician's and surgeon's certificate, as defined in the Business and Professions Code, in a case where, to a medical certainty, the result of childbirth would be death of the mother of the fetus or where her death from childbirth, although not medically certain, would be substantially certain or more likely than not.

3.  The act was solicited, aided, abetted, or consented to by the mother of the fetus.

(c) Subdivision (b) shall not be construed to prohibit the prosecution of any person under any other provision of law.

Mr Poplin was determined to be the father of the unborn child. 
Why does only the mum get to decide whether the foetus is a capable of being murdered in the first degree or aborted with determination aforethought?  Is such a law a violation of the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment?  If, as many courts have ruled, the “state has a compelling interest in encouraging and fostering procreation of the human species,” why is Mr Poplin convicted of first degree murder for doing what his girlfriend could do at any time?   Does some chemical or biological change occur within the foetus prior to abortion that differentiates it from a foetus of the same age killed via a 13 inch butcher knife or in an automobile accident?

E. On 6 June 2005, 19-year-old Gerardo Flores was convicted in Lufkin, Texas, of two counts of murder for stomping on the stomach of his girlfriend, causing her to miscarry twins.

Erica Basoria was 16-years-old at the time, and asked Flores to help her abort.

She was not charged due to her legal right to abort.

Flores received an automatic life sentence.

Wasn't he just performing an abortion at the request of a woman, who had a legal right to such?

Why should the government sentenced the man to life and not charge the woman with anything for what was, as you called earlier, a 'private matter'?

On a personal note:  I loathe abortion.  I also know that it, like the poor, will always be with us.  As a libertarian, I will not try to stop you, but I will not buy your claim that a foetus is just a "collection of cells."  That canard has been sold by people and organisations like Klan Parenthood to absolve people of guilt.  "You didn't kill your baby.  It was just a clump of a wart."  Well, left alone, a small clump of wart cells will grow into a wart and, possibly, Epcot Centre (lol!), but a "small clump of foetal cells" likewise left alone will grow into a human being, who depending upon the indoctrination to which he is subjected, he will either be a producer or a parasite.

Fear not, I will not blow up your abortion clinics nor will I march to overturn your Dred Scot-like Roe v Wade, an abomination of legal reasoning if there ever was one, but do not delude yourself into believing that no one dies or gets hurts in an abortion.  With that, I will leave you with a word on abortion from Johnny Rotten and Sid Vicious...
