Watch the little fetuses on TV
Jim Mowen, who ran unsucessfully against Andrea Zinga for the Republican congressional nomination, has submitted the following guest ... well, it's not a post, but rather a challenge, I guess.
If it goes down this road, I have a few shows I'd like him and others of his stripe to watch too, such as Frontline's "The Last Abortion Clinic" about anti-abortion tactics and efforts to make it ever more difficult, if not impossible for women to get safe abortions in a clinical setting.
Or perhaps "The Jesus Factor" about how Bush and Rove have cynically milked the fundy crowd to gain and hold power.
Or particularly the excellent documentary, The Dark Side", the Frontline episode aired two weeks ago which documented how the administration was itching to invade Iraq before 9-11, how they instantly began trying to use 9-11 as their big excuse to go into Iraq, and Cheney's war with the CIA in order to control and twist intelligence in order to deceieve the public into supporting it's burning desire to get the U.S. into the worst foreign policy blunder in it's history.
But Mowen's program promises to be interesting - at least the ads for the program make it seem so. Go ahead and catch it. The technology is amazing and can now show clearly the inside of the womb. As you watch all those little half formed fetusessss (or feti?) just remember that they could be there due to rape or incest or be inside a hopelessly drug addicted mother with no money, or......
Evidently, the pro-life folks are more than willing to adopt these babies though, aren't they? Or are they just trying to club us over the head with their particular religious beliefs and take away a woman's right to control her reproductive life?
And of course, these anti-choice folks are likely dead set against condoms being freely available too. And likely pro-death penalty. Makes my head hurt.
Perhaps next a Rastafarian will write in to encourage us all to watch a pro-marijuana documentary and then try to convince us to legalize it based on its important role in their religious beliefs? That might work too.
Millions of people who are already alive are starving and suffering in this world. Wonder why it's their obsession to dictate what other's do with their unborn fetuses?
INVITATION TO ALL
This Sunday evening there is a program on that I encourage, to some of you, challenge you to watch.
National Geographic Channel
Sunday – January 14
The program details how triplets (inside the womb) act and relate to one another. I saw a clip of the video used and it is 4-D sonogram and one sees these babies for what they are…living, loving, real people – just not yet born.
I appreciate the fact that many pro-choice (pro-abortion) people come to this position by lack of knowledge, lack of understanding of what a human life is inside the womb. Here is your chance to learn a little more about the reality of the situation, a little more about the life that is terminated in an abortion.
If you are pro-abortion, I challenge you to watch this show.
As far as comments, please let’s save them for after the show).
Thank you – Jim Mowen
It should be noted that Jim has no rational view on this subject, as evidenced by the fact that he insists on portraying anyone who may favor a woman's freedom to get an abortion if she chooses as being "pro-abortion", a disingenous and completely unfair distortion.
But if you want to humor a theocon and engage him in a debate in which his position is rigid, he'll dismiss anything you say or believe that doesn't square with his rigid and pre-conceived moral and religious framework, and is impervious to any logic, then be my guest. He seems to enjoy it and thinks that this is "debate".
