The “I had an abortion t-shirts” being promoted by Planned Parenthood are the latest disgusting public touting of the “safer abortions” mentality.
In a day when some of the most popular abortion related search terms on the internet are: “pro and cons of abortion”, “safer abortions”, “abortion pill costs”, and even “abortion clinic Atlanta”; organizations such as Planned Parenthood and their pro-death pundits are making the most of their lucrative industry. Yes “safer abortions” as they are misleadingly referred to are the bread and butter of such groups, but now they seem to now be forced into the realm of producing and promoting new products such as the “I had an abortion” t shirts. This may be because although abortion is still the most murderous practice in the land, pro-life groups have gained substantial ground in recent years in the hearts and minds of many Americans.
The reason for this may be partially attributed to the search terms we mentioned before (“pro and cons of abortion”, “safer abortions”, “abortion pill costs”, and “abortion clinic Atlanta”). What I mean is simply that great Americans and others have gone too great efforts to promote the real facts concerning the hideous abortion craze. Fact such as these: (1) The heart of a baby in the womb begins to beat between the eighteenth and twenty-fifth day from the point of conception. (2) Electrical brain waves have been recorded as early as forty days from the point of conception. (3) The Bible clearly defines abortion as murder…and the list goes on and on.
But, back to the “I had an abortion” t shirts issue: These shirts represent the callousness and money grubbing attitudes of the murderous abortion rights movement. So in an effort to counter the message the pro-abortion folks are trying desperately to spread, lets purchase and wear our version of the internet. For pro life abortion statistics by race in the United States Pro Life Abortion Statics in the United States These shirts are made after the similitude of the “I had an abortion” t shirts, but they have the word “had” crossed out with the words “didn’t have” written over it thus reading “I didn’t have an abortion.” And the subtext below the main message says, “You can choose life, too.” to go to the website that carries these great counter shirts to the “I had an abortion” t shirts. Hint: Once you arrive at the site with the t shirts, click on the “New Designs” button in the left hand column and that should bring you right to the “I didn’t have an abortion” t-shirt. You can also purchase many other great pro-life, anti-Kerry, and Christian t-shirts there.
The Legal Definition of Abortion
Can you define or provide an accurate definition of abortion? The definition should include moral values and should avoid political correctness, but include consistent history in defining the definition.
The Medical Definition of Abortion
English Common Law forbid abortion with a definition of “quickening” or removal of the fetus (i.e., the first recognizable movement of the fetus in the uterus), which occurred between the sixteenth and eighteenth weeks of pregnancy. After quickening, however, common law was less clear as to whether abortion was considered a crime. In the United States, state legislatures did not pass abortion statutes until the nineteenth century. After 1880, abortion was criminalized by statute in every state of the Union, owing in large measure to strong anti-abortion positions taken by the American Medical Association (AMA). Despite the illegality, many thousands of women every year sought abortions. Under a heavy cloak of shame and secrecy, women often had abortions performed in unsafe conditions, and many died or suffered complications from the procedures.
The abortion laws definition developed in the late nineteenth century existed largely unchanged until the 1960s and 1970s, when a number of different circumstances combined to bring about a movement for their reform. Women’s Rights groups, doctors, and lawyers began an organized abortion reform movement to press for changes, in part because many of them had witnessed the sometimes deadly complications resulting from illegal abortions. Women’s organizations also began to see abortion reform as a crucial step toward the goal of equality between the sexes. They argued that women must be able to control their pregnancies in order to secure equal status. In addition, new concerns regarding explosive population growth and its effect on the environment increased public awareness of the need for Birth Control. At the same time, other countries developed far more permissive laws regarding abortion. In Japan and Eastern Europe, abortion was available on demand, and in much of Western Europe, abortion was permitted to protect the mother’s health.
