Dems return to prayer: Thank God for abortionists

At 2012 National Convention re-nominating Obama, Democrats booed the inclusion of God in their party platform

When discussing differences between Republicans and Democrats the topic usually turns to individual responsibility vs. government paternalism; a commitment to smaller federal bureaucracy vs. higher taxes funding ever-increasing programs; and the conservative dedication to Constitutional-based liberty. Invariably, issues relating to the sanctity of life enter the equation.  Republicans generally put a premium on the God-given gift of human life.

The Iowa Republican blog reports that Iowa Democrat gubernatorial candidates Jack Hatch and Tyler Olson bowed their heads and solemnly closed their eyes as they joined 50 pro-abortion activists in an extended prayer that repeatedly celebrated abortion during a recent rally at the State Capitol. Des Moines activist Midge Slater took the podium and spent five-and-a-half minutes thanking God for abortion “rights,” abortion “doctors” and taxpayer funding for abortions. She also referred to the decision to have an abortion as “a blessing.”

Here are a few excerpts from the pro-abortion prayer:

We give thanks, oh Lord, for the doctors, both current and future, who provide quality abortion care.”

“We pray for increased financial support for low-income women to access contraception, abortion and childcare.”

“Today, we pray for women in developing nations, that they may know the power of self-determination. May they have access to employment, education, birth control and abortion.”

“Today we pray for the families who have chosen. May they know the blessing of choice.” Click here for video.


Just last year the Democrats held their national convention in Charlotte, North Carolina. The assembled delegates used the occasion to boo the inclusion of God in their party platform and jeer updated language identifying Jerusalem as the capitol of Israel. Watch their obscene antics included in the video here.

    Count on liberals to show themselves for what they really are. They pray for death for innocents while deceptively calling it self-determination and health care for women.

  2. Proudly ProLife says:

    Abortionists are murderers. They might have gone to medical school but they are not doctors in the true sense of the word.
    The Hippocratic Oath is named for the Greek physician Hippocrates, known as the “Father of Medicine.” It declares the virtuous doctor must reject any role in killing, and be devoted to the arts of healing. The oath instructs physicians “to do good or to do no harm.”

    This article from New Zealand is a good read on the subject and describes how the oath has been altered in a “modern version,“ to accommodate the pro-abortion left.

    This is the ultimate perversion and mockery of the Judeo-Christian ethic; the Godless praying to God to facilitate the violation of the most fundamental moral tenets of Scripture. “Thou shalt not kill.” Exodus 20:13

    The Obama administration has ushered in a period of assaults of unprecedented scope and vehemence upon Judeo-Christian moral values and upon Jewish and Christian believers. What is at the root of this? What are it’s origins?

    “Manifesto of the Communist Party”

    “by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels, February 1848”

    “Chapter II. Proletarians and Communists”

    “When the ancient world was in its last throes, the ancient religions were overcome by Christianity. When Christian ideas succumbed in the 18th century to rationalist ideas, feudal society fought its death battle with the then revolutionary bourgeoisie. The ideas of religious liberty and freedom of conscience merely gave expression to the sway of free competition within the domain of knowledge.”

    “Undoubtedly,” it will be said, “religious, moral, philosophical, and juridical ideas have been modified in the course of historical development. But religion, morality, philosophy, political science, and law, constantly survived this change.”

    “There are, besides, eternal truths, such as Freedom, Justice, etc., that are common to all states of society. But Communism abolishes eternal truths, it abolishes all religion, and all morality, instead of constituting them on a new basis; it therefore acts in contradiction to all past historical experience.”

    Marx and Engels explicitly state that Communism abolishes eternal truths, religion and all morality. That, of course, is absurd on the face of it. If a truth is eternal then how can it be abolished? Take note of the fact that Freedom and Justice are SPECIFICALLY mentioned as among the “eternal truths” which are abolished by Communism.

    What Marx and Engels are describing is what they SEEK to do in order to bring about Communist states. So what we see from Obama and Liberal Democrats in their attacks upon Judeo-Christian moral values is nothing more than the application of strategies from the “Manifesto of the Communist Party”, first articulated in 1847 and first published in 1848.

    In short, what Liberals seek to do is to abolish God and to replace Him with their god of the state. They are doomed to failure because God is not, as they believe, a mental construct. God is an ever-living Being who is omniscient, omnipresent and omnipotent.

    • MacBeth says:

      I agree with what you have written, but original Biblical texts use the term “murder” rather than “kill.“ There is a vast difference between the two. Murder is a wanton act. The state imposing the death penalty, for example, is not murdering, nor are soldiers fighting a righteous war.

      Abortion, the taking of innocent life for the sake of convenience, is murder. Pastor Pat Robertson wrote this on the differentiations:

      • eubykdisop says:

        That’s a good distinction, MacBeth. I used “kill” because it’s what people are most familiar with.

        I am not a pacifist nor do I think that we should refrain from slaying enemies in righteous battle, that we should fail to defend our lives or the lives of others, with deadly force if necessary, or that we should abolish the death penalty. Liberals making intellectual arguments, and seeking to score “points”, would call that “hypocrisy” on my part. That is because all they have is intellect. Spiritual truths may only be fully comprehended with the spiritual faculty and not with the inadequate tool of intellect. It is God who ultimately makes truth known to us.

        “But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.” John 14:26

        Killing children who are not yet born is premeditated murder committed simply for the convenience of the worldly who have no love of God or regard for His law or for His wishes.

  4. East Valley Voter says:

    Here’s Barack Obama addressing the Planned Parenthood gala right after the abortionist Gosnell’s murder trial. Obama asks God to bless Planned Parenthood for the “work” it does on “behalf of women.” No concern regarding the fate of the tens of millions of dead babies, many of whom were black.

    • eubykdisop says:

      From 2008-2010 data:

      Blacks: 12.6% of U. S. population, 35.4% of abortions.

      Hispanics: 16.3% of U. S. population, 20.6% of abortions.

      So Hispanics are a larger population than Blacks AND their abortion rate is almost 15% lower than that of Blacks.

      This is just another way in which Blacks are being thrown under the bus to politically empower Hispanics instead.

  5. Thucydides says:

    When Darwin wrote his treatise on evolution, it was titled ” Survival of the Favored Races.” There were two parts to his work, one was to give a foundation to evolution, the other was to explain the dramatic differences between species. As he explained it in his 1859 work, as a species evolves it begins to develop different races. When one of those races develops a superior advantage, it wipes out the genetically inferior race. It was Darwin, not Hitler who named the Germans the master race. It was Darwin who expressed approval of eliminating both Jews and Africans. Hitler worked to eliminate the Jews. Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood was given the job of eliminating African Americans. Hitler fed 6 million Jews into the ovens. Sanger has fed 16 million African Americans into the abortion mills.

    • eubykdisop says:

      “Abortion and Black Genocide (Barack Obama and the Negro Project)”

      “Margaret Sanger and Planned Parenthood’s so-called “Negro Project” is alive and well as the most pro-abortion candidate in American history promises to not only protect Roe v. Wade but to use the presidency and his judicial appointments to push an even more radical social agenda.”

    • eubykdisop says:

      BTW, Sanger started the “Negro Project” in 1939, the same year that Adolf Hitler invaded Poland precipitating WWII.

    • eubykdisop says:

      Margaret Sanger, portrayed by the Liberal left as some sort of heroic figure, was an alcoholic and Demerol addict who said:

      “The most merciful thing that the large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it.” – Margaret Sanger

      Sanger was a card-carrying Socialist and Marxist:

      “In 1912 Sanger and her family settled in New York City. She became a member of both the Women’s Committee and the Marxist Committee of the New York Socialist Party. “Our living-room,” she would write in her 1938 autobiography, “became a gathering place where liberals, anarchists, Socialists and I.W.W.’s [Industrial Workers of the World members] could meet.”

  6. Villanova says:

    In Arizona we had the case of abortionist and sexual predator Brian Finkel. He was found guilty in Maricopa County Superior Court of 22 counts of criminal sexual abuse although originally charged with 67 sex counts! Finkel is currently serving time in AZ State Prison, and will not become eligible for parole for 20 years.
    Here he is. Swell guy.

  7. LEO IN TSN says:

    Several years ago Janet Napolitano, now head of the University of Hellifornia, was delighted to celebrate the induction of Margaret sanger into the AZ Women’s Hall of Fame. I guess that makes them both poster girls (?) for our state. And then along came Jan McBrewer with her plans for gov’t funded gov’t mandated abortion for the masses, even little girls.

    God bless America.
