The Country’s Two Most Admired People Are Abortion Zealots

By Jerry A. Kane

The lives of nearly 50 million citizens have been snuffed out since 1973 when seven black-robed men decided to legislate from the bench rather than interpret law and went on to make abortion a privacy right protected by the Constitution.  

“[L]egalized abortion is the law of the land because the Supreme Court … created [a] constitutional right to privacy … [which] included a new constitutional right to abortion. If you look in the Constitution, however, you will find no general ‘right to privacy’ any more than you will find a right to abortion — and for good reason: It’s not there. The framers assumed no general right to privacy because, to state the obvious, criminal and evil acts can be committed in privacy.”—Mark Levin.

According to the pro-abortion rights Alan Guttmacher Institute, 93 percent of abortions are done because the child is an unwanted inconvenience, 35 percent of women in the U.S. will have had an abortion by the time they’re 45 years old, and black women are more than four times as likely to have an abortion as white women.

Guttmacher reports that Catholic women account for more than 31 percent of U.S. abortions, black women 30 percent, and evangelical Christians 18 percent. According to estimates by the pro-life group BlackGenocide.com, nearly two thousand black pregnancies are terminated daily.

Even though statistics show that the number of abortions has dropped sharply over the past ten years in the U.S. and that more people now oppose abortion than support it, the two most admired people in the country are zealous supporters of unrestricted abortion on demand.

The Ruler and Hillary Clinton top Gallup’s list of Babylon the Great’s most admired people. It’s the ninth consecutive year for the Secretary of State and former U.S. Senator from New York to be selected the nation’s most admired woman, and the third consecutive year for the Ruler to be the nation’s most admired man.  

During her 2008 campaign for President, the nation’s most admired woman said that “abortion should remain legal, but it needs to be safe and rare.” According to the Guttmacher report, the state that she represented in the U.S. Senate for 8 years has twice the abortion rate of Russia, the nation with the highest per capita abortion rate in the world. But its understood that she’s brilliant and nuanced, so her position really depends on what her definition of “rare” is.

Both the Ruler and Hillary claim abortion should be safe, but neither one has mentioned the recent grand jury report outlining the horrific late-term abortions performed by Dr. Kermit Gosnell on poor, minority, and immigrant women at the Women’s Medical Society in Philadelphia.

Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Williams said Gosnell knowingly and systematically mistreated the women in his care. The grand jury report cited several cases of women with torn cervixes and colons, punctured uteruses, and pelvic infections due to fetal body parts left in the womb from incomplete abortions.

What’s more, the report charges that racism and discrimination were routinely practiced at the clinic. Gosnell’s abortion mill remained invisible to state agency supervision because he was a black doctor whose clinic cared for mostly poor and minority women.

According to the report, Gosnell understood the political realities at play. When a white woman from the suburbs would come to the clinic for an abortion, Gosnell would insist that he be consulted during every step of the procedure. However, when the patient was a black, minority, or poor woman, Gosnell would allow his unlicensed staff to perform the procedure without his direct oversight. When asked by staff members about the obvious double standard, he responded that it was “the way of the world.”

Wasn’t the Ruler’s “hope and change” sloganeering directed toward transforming “the way of the world”? Yet, when the health and safety of poor and minority women are jeopardized because of barbaric abortion practices, the Ruler refuses to address the evil.

Having made unrestricted abortion on demand his number one priority, the Ruler ignores the cries and screams of the women who were brutalized and the babies who were born alive and then butchered with scissors at the clinic. His ears tune in only to the shrieks of feminists and the screeches of pro-abortion activists.

The indifference to the brutalities of the abortion industry demonstrates a lack of character in the nation’s two most admired people, but it also exposes the shame of the people who admire them.

I saw thousands who could have overcome the darkness

For the love of a lousy buck, I’ve watched them die

Stick around, baby, we’re not through

Don’t look for me, I’ll see you

When the night comes falling

When the night comes falling

When the night comes falling from the sky.

I. M. Kane
