This video is confusing.

In the video above, Dr. Willie Parker — a doctor who performs abortions — says “The fierce opposition to women making this, what for them is a sacred decision, is ever-present in at least every place that I’ve been.”

Here’s what’s confusing.

Dr. Parker says that opposition to abortion is mostly grounded on religious beliefs, a debatable proposition but a reasonable one. Because of that, he says, in the minds of the pro-life community, defending the life of the unborn is a sacred duty.

He then says that he belongs to a group called the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice, and that their position is that a woman choosing to terminate her pregnancy is “equally sacred.”

Wait.

For decades, the pro-choice side has characterized abortion as just removing a wad of cells, or a blob of tissues.

What’s sacred about that? We don’t talk about removing cancerous tumors as a “sacred” decision.

If it’s not a life, then what exactly is “sacred” in the decision to rip it out?

On the other hand, if we’re making “sacred” choices here, shouldn’t government funding for all Planned Parenthood and abortion-related activities cease? Separation of church and state…

Didn't any of these abortionists read Hippocrates' Oath where any practitioner of the "art" of medicine" vows...

"I will neither give a deadly drug to anybody who asked for it, nor will I make a suggestion to this effect. Similarly I will not give to a woman an abortive remedy. In purity and holiness I will guard my life and my art."

Oh wait, that language is so antiquated, sort of how Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Barack Obama view the United States Constitution. Many if most medical schools leave that out altogether or have replaced it with more modern and up to date language that says no such thing forbidding a doctor's role in ripping out a fetus or embryo.

The people who sacrificed their kids to Baal thought they were making "sacred" decisions too.

Not confusing but lucrative. And greed is sacred to each and every abortionist.

It isn't confusing at all when one realizes the Left is a death cult. Socialism and Marxism call for the elimination of those who continue to think for themselves and oppose this new order. Everywhere Marxism has taken over there have been mass killings. The US has been sliding into Socialism and abortion is the only mass killing they have been able to get away with thus far.

This shouldn't be surprising since Socialism and Marxism are just the feudalism and tyranny of old restated for the modern world. It really is no different from the ancient times of kings and tyrants taking over, having complete control, and killing all who opposed them.

It isn't a sacred decision, it is a personal decision, and if women who wanted control over their own body, didn't ask others to pay for the result of their lack of control over their own body, then this would be a decision between patient and doctor only, and not in the public forum.

Don't seem to need to consult with anyone save my doctor when I am having a tissue mass removed from my body, such as the tumor from my hand years ago.

So, as long as you do it privately, and don't ask anybody to pay for it, it's okay to murder a person?

Take a look at a "tissue mass" screaming as it is dismembered:

Let us know when you have watched it all the way through.

"Sacred decision"? No, it's a Sacrifice to the gods. Conveniently so.

This is patently false logic. Abortion is wanton murder.
Twisting, turning and fine tuning abortion to be anything else by Progressive New Left Activists is merely glossing over one fact...a life is being illegally, undeniably and without any hearing (or evidence to the contrary) being put to death (fetus killed).
These holier than thou screamers about how awful, inhumane and deplorable executions of convicted felons are, how they sneeze, wheeze, scream, slumber, snore or even grimace is self serving and pious when confronted vis-a-vis an innocent infants execution without so much as a legal defense.
Abortion is genocide, mass genocide. 31 million estimated since Roe vs. Wade.
Far more than any megalomaniac from Germany's gas chambers ever dreamed of performing...its called eugenics.
Abortion, a scourge on all America and Americans. Planned Parenthood and her offspring abortion clinics should be shut down today. Just like Third Reich's crematories were shut down after WWII. Cease and desist, NOW! Pray. Amen.

I wonder if he's read "The Sacrament of Abortion" by Ginette Paris - a French witch who proudly proclaims that abortion is needed as a blood sacrifice.

Yeah. You share the planet with people like that. Sleep well.

I think it's a sacred decision, too. The only question is: Which god is it sacred to? Infant sacrifice, for example, is sacred to Moloch and Baal. But it is an abomination to YHWH.

Info: The Pill and many other birth control devices are abortifacients.

Abortion has killed more Americans than the USSR would have killed if we had a nuclear war in 1961.

Compare. Think. Who is the enemy?

"the pill", particularly high hormone level versions, also promotes breast cancer. With long term use, there are also problems with fertility, estimates that a woman has to be "off" the pill for at least 6 months for conception to have a chance.

You'd have to be brain dead to not connect apparent increases in infertility and breast cancer to long term use of the pill.

Do Sandra Fluke and Nancy Pelosi and all the other obsessives demanding their government mandate "free" contraception ever connect those dots ?

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-2712746/Taking-Pill-raises-risk-breast-cancer-50-cent-says-study.html

"Across recent use of all pills, breast cancer risk increased by 50 per cent, compared with never or former use."
