If there is one thing that is distinctive about the progressive socialist left, it is their ability to manipulate language. They have an uncanny ability to make anything seem so innocuous and acceptable by masquerading their true intentions. There is no better evidence of such that when it comes to the issue of murdering unborn, and now born, babies. Who in their right mind could make something so heinous and cruel into a rallying cry?
Deuteronomy 30:19 (New International Version) states:
“This day I call the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live.”
When it comes to the use of language, somehow the leftist, bolstered by radical feminists, claim that they are “pro-choice.” As I read this scripture, it is easy to deduce that those who believe in the sanctity of life — born and unborn, — are indeed pro-choice, and that choice is life. What the left kinda leaves off is that their choice is simple: death.
I once wrote a piece that was so distressing of so-called “religious” leaders in the church who supported the murder of unborn babies. And no, I do not support the murder of unborn babies as a means of birth control. I strongly condemn the leading provider of death to the unborn, Planned Parenthood. We have addressed the history of their founder, Margaret Sanger, on this site on many an occasion.
But, what should trouble us all is the abject delusion and deranged obsession that the left has with murdering unborn babies. It is almost as though it has become their religion, something they worship. As a matter of fact, in the Old Testament, the Canaanite god Moloch was worshiped, he was the god of child sacrifice.
This obsession does not just infest the left, they want to punish anyone who does not embrace this pillar of their ideological agenda . . . their belief. Just as Bob Frank O’Rourke said that churches should lose their tax-exempt status if they do not embrace same-sex marriage, the left has embarked upon further acts conveying their intolerance, their tyranny.
As reported by LiveAction:
“The city of San Francisco has announced that it will no longer do business with nearly half the states in the nation because those states have “severe anti-choice policies.” The October 16 ordinance prohibits city employees from traveling to 22 states for business or making new deals with any companies headquartered in the states because those states have “restrictive abortion laws.” The ordinance is set to take effect on January 1, 2020.
The ordinance was spearheaded by Supervisor Vallie Brown with the support of Mayor London Breed. It defines restrictive abortion laws as “those that restrict abortion before viability of the fetus to live outside of the womb, including so-called ‘fetal heartbeat’ laws.” The age of viability is commonly thought to be around 24 weeks, but children born weeks younger, around 21 weeks, have been known to survive with medical assistance.
“Every day in this country, women’s reproductive rights are threatened, and we have to fight back,” Mayor Breed said in a statement. “Just as we restricted spending with states that have laws that discriminate against LGBTQ people, we are standing up against states that put women’s health at risk and that are actively working to limit reproductive freedoms. By limiting travel and contracting with certain states, we are sending a clear message to states that disregard the right to abortion. I want to thank Supervisor Brown for leading this important effort, and all of the organizations who supported this work.”
The phrases “women’s health” and “reproductive freedom” are among the most common euphemisms used to mask what the city officials are really fighting for – a woman’s freedom to kill her pre-born child.
According to the ordinance, the following states are now “blacklisted” because they ban or limit abortion in some way before 24 weeks: Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Nebraska, Nevada, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas, West Virginia, and Wisconsin.”
I tend to believe that San Francisco has far more pressing issues than to embark upon this endeavor of “economic terrorism,” or, actually a vile quid pro quo. In other words, if you do not submit to our leftist ideological agenda and allow the murder of unborn babies, we will punish you, and restrict economic engagement.
Hmm, should we be holding impeachment hearings regarding the Mayor London Breed of San Francisco?
Furthermore, think of this: here is San Francisco, a sanctuary city for illegal immigrants, where they released a five-time deported criminal illegal immigrant who killed an American woman, Kate Steinle. Now, these progressive socialists want to claim some absurd type of immoral high ground and make demands of other sovereign American States? Or how about this, since San Francisco is in violation of our constitution and its laws by providing a safe harbor for individuals in our country illegally, we do not send any federal taxpayer funding to them?
How about this: we just all stop doing business with San Francisco, heck, California. We just let the progressive socialist left have that state, and just seal it off from the rest of our Republic, and let them have their ideological utopia?
Let’s face the reality of this situation: the left in America are waging economic jihad against states that do not embrace their ideological agenda. Sure, they can make that “choice” but there are ramifications, consequences that accompany such decisions as that of San Francisco. And, the biggest ramification should be isolation.
Ladies and gents — heck, I can’t even say that in San Francisco — the ideological battle lines are being drawn. Those of us who refuse to bow down and worship at the feet of Moloch need to stand strong. No surrender, retreat, cowering, acquiescing to this abomination.
I challenge y’all: if you have not seen the movies “Gosnell” and “Unplanned,” do so. Know that there was a reason why the leftist entertainment industry did everything they could to undermine those two films. The truth about the American abortion industry damages the progressive socialist left’s position. We only have ourselves to blame if we remain ignorant, in the dark.
I live in Texas, and the Mayor of San Francisco can kiss-off. You do not get to Californicate our Texas!
