Pro-Abort Hysteria

I’ve been away from the blog for a while! School was out and my time was spent with my family, I was way too tired to blog in the evenings. Kids are back in school and I am back to blogging!

So here is a graphic posted by a rabid pro-abort. As usual, its full of exaggeration, lies and half-truths:

Pro lifeI won’t dispute that people die every day due to gun violence. I will dispute the fact that stricter gun laws will change that. Why? Have you ever known a criminal to obey the law? Guns were not allowed on the grounds of the Naval Yard in Washington DC. Did that stop Aaron Alexis from taking a gun in?

Despite the fact that there are no gun shops in Chicago IL, they had over 500 gun related homicides in 2012.

Gun laws have not nor will they ever stop gun violence. Gun laws punish law-abiding gun owners for the sins of the criminal.

THOUSANDS of Americans die each year due to hunger? THAT one is a flat out lie.

According to the World Health Organization, 120 Americans died from “lack of food” in 2004. Starvation rates in the United States are generally not recorded due to the relative infrequency of the occurrence. Generally speaking, most people do not starve to death in America as a result of lack of access to food. A combination of government food programs and private charities help to ensure this. However, Americans do have a serious problem with malnutrition. Starvation (that is, death due to lack of food) in America, in the relatively rare instances that it does occur, is not usually an indication of poverty but rather a variety of other social issues.

Nearly 45,000 die from lack of health care? Half-truth.

The numbers come from a study done 20 years ago, and it did not state “lack of health care” as the reason. It claimed “lack of insurance”. What the study also did not state was CAUSES of the deaths. Was it due to an illness that the person should have been treated for? What about someone who was wheeled into the ER because they were struck by a car and died. Insurance wouldn’t have made a bit of difference would it? Natural causes? Insurance isn’t going to help there either.

According to the National Association of Free and Charitable Clinics,  there are over 1,200 clinics all over the United States that offer free or low cost medical care to the poor and uninsured. Health care is available, but you can’t FORCE someone to go and get it.

Just once I’d like to see a pro-abort do a little homework before going off the deep end.

    They are just trying to justify their wrongdoing. If they stopped believing everything the mainstream media says and started thinking for themselves, they’d realize that conservatives DO care about other people.

    I find it interesting that you quote the WHO when at the same time the WHO supports abortion and access to birth control since they realized that out of the 42 million abortions done each year, half of those are illegal and unsafe leaving a significant amount of women to die or be continuing medical problems. I just found it interesting is all.

      It was the only place I came across that had data. I know the WHO supports abortion access, but it doesn’t discount any of their other stats. Thanks for looking at the blog! 🙂

        Well Jennifer call me blunt, but I am curious about your response to deaths in America. Do you think lack of insurance should be the reason for lack of healthcare? I mean there are people who cannot afford health insurance therefore healthcare and there is this idea that healthcare or basic healthcare should be universal.

        I’m pretty sure I stated in the post that lack of insurance wasn’t the issue.There are health care centers that either provide low-cost or free care to low-income individuals. The care is available, but we can’t force people to go there.
