Where’s the “Choice” Now?

According to Life Site News, President Bush is pushing forward with regulations that will protect doctors and nurses from being forced to perform abortions against their conscience.

The regulations will enforce existing federal law that requires taxpayer-funded medical institutions not to discriminate against medical personnel who conscientiously object to performing abortions or assisting “in the performance of any part of a health service program or research activity,” including the distribution of abortifacient contraceptives.” —Kathleen Gilbert, November 25, 2008

Abortion rights advocates continue to wage war against the regulations, saying they are a threat to a women’s right to abortion and will succeed in lowering the number of abortions. “Senators Hillary Clinton and Patty Murray (note the names well) introduced legislation Thursday to halt the regulations, accusing President Bush of “again putting ideology first” in a “last-minute attempt to undermine women’s health care.” What???? Just because you are a doctor or nurse, now you HAVE to do this? YOU get NO CHOICE? That’s not fair. You are now undermining women’s health care (so they say). We’ll just put a gun to your head and MAKE you do this! Where’s the respect?

It is reported that some doctors have complained of discrimination because they refused to perform procedures that went against their conscience. Thanks, Hilary, for being such a good advocate of this. We knew we could count on you.

You know, when I go to a store to get a particular item that I am in dire need of…and it may affect my health too…If they don’t have the item, I don’t force them to go get it for me…I GO SOMEWHERE ELSE AND BUY IT (yes, I’m shouting). Why can’t these people do the same? If you can’t get the product you want, go somewhere else. How hard is that? But no, WE’D rather force people to do what WE want. They want CHOICE for them (and that comes with the opportunity to browbeat you into submission), but not for others. They want to take away your freedom of CHOICE. They get to choose, but you don’t. Will the madness ever end?

“It’s unconscionable that the Bush administration, while promising a smooth transition, would take a final opportunity to politicize women’s health,” said Planned Parenthood Federation of America President Cecile Richards.”

Oh, good grief, grow up and get over yourself… I can’t help it today… this is stunning.

Please notice my new quote in the sidebar. I lifted that from The Conservative Pup’s blog. I felt it was very appropriate to the times we live in. And especially after reading this news item.

  1. Kathy,
    Great, great post! This is near and dear to my heart, as I am a registered nurse and have practiced for thirty some-odd years. I know and am friends with a physician who years ago refused to cover a particular unit, because of the abortions done. It was a bit complicated for her, but she stuck by her moral convictions.

    I luckily, have not found myself in work areas where I’ve had to take this stand, but make no mistake, I would take this stand.

    You are absolutely right, that the left (socialists) want “choice”, but only if it’s THEIR choice. They advocate “free speech”, but only if it’s THEIR choice of words.

    Thank you so much for posting about this. I would like to link to this on my blog, if that’s OK with you. I don’t think there’s anything better or more important I could say today.

  3. I think it is despicable how these monsters will fight for the right to kill a child and deny the parents the right to raise their child the way they see fit. They fight against parents having a say in their child’s education and what school, if any, they should attend. Their hatred for children is appalling whether born or unborn. It is up to us to fight for our children. It is up to us women to defend our men, whether they are our husbands, brothers, uncles, sons, nephews or other male loved ones. I am tired of their lie of choice when all they really want to do is take people’s choices away. Well, there is nothing more dangerous than a ticked off Black woman and they are not going to take away my choices anymore. God bless you for standing up to the feminist bullies. We are stronger than they are. For we have God on our side and we can defeat them! They will not win! (I know doesn’t sound like your run of the mill, docile Mormon woman does it? Well that is because I’m not! LOL)

  4. Hello, blacknright. Glad you came by for a visit. I remember a time in my “distant” past where my extreme selfishness totally blinded me to the rights and feelings of others. I really didn’t even concern myself at all with them. I believe that is what we see here. The end results in denying the rights of others, but I’m not sure I can say that is what they are after…they are merely after getting their own way at all costs…and it really doesn’t matter to them if they trample on others in doing so. That is from a lack of respect and consideration of people, which the pro-death groups naturally come by. God bless you for being in the fight.

  5. Hi Vic, I didn’t know you had stopped by…yes, I am hearing this week about the holiday gift certificates on the Laura Ingraham show….as well as the taped conversation of a PP worker telling a 13 year old she doesn’t want to know the age of the man she’s been having sex with!
