Utah Building Up Fund for Abortion Ban

And people wonder why I am Mormon. LOL.

Conservative legislators are backing away from costly plans to take on Roe v. Wade this year — given Utah’s tight budget — but they want to start stockpiling donations for a future court fight against abortion.
“We are looking at wanting to ban abortion in Utah, period, end of story. However, we want to do it correctly,” said Rep. Carl Wimmer, R-Herriman. “We’re not going to back away from abortion. We’re never going to let it die.”

Utah Building Up Fund for Abortion Ban

The estimated cost to take on Roe v. Wade would be betwenn 2 and 7 million dollars. The average being about 4 million. They want to make sure they have enough funds available to fight in court, if need be. Right now the only state without an abortion clinic in it and with an abortion ban already to go when Roe is overturned is South Dakota. Planned Parenthood shut down its last clinic there in 2008!  Of course with Obama in the White House soon, who knows how long will it be before another one opens. Obama has promised Planned Parenthood to institute FOCA (Freedom of Choice Act) which would undo all the hard work pro-lifers have done so far. But the President can only sign a bill or veto a bill-he can’t pass it single-handedly. So if Congress doesn’t sign off on the bill, he can sign it all he wants  FOCA won’t go anywhere! Ask George Bush-he can tell  you. He signed the Partial Birth Abortion Act and it didn’t go anywhere. It was too busy being tied up in courts to do any good.

“Missy Bird, executive director of the Planned Parenthood Action Committee, said the current cost to try to overturn Roe v. Wade would range between $4 million and $7 million. “The people would really be hard pressed to endorse a public fund that we can put millions of dollars into when the people of Utah have better priorities,” she said. She wishes the Legislature instead would focus discussions on matters such as proposed cuts in Medicaid to pregnant women, the end of the Baby Your Baby program and eliminating the Medicaid cancer program, which helps low-income women pay their medical bills to fight breast and ovarian cancer.”

Please these  are the same people who didn’t want pregnant women and their unborn children to be included in the SHIPP program, which is also a low income insurance program issued by the federal government. They didn’t mind the women so much but didn’t want the unborn child to be codified into the law! These are the same people berating women for accepting Medi-Cal and tell them they are not good enough to be parents and should have an abortion! And they sure don’t care about breast cancer or they wouldn’t try to cover up the link between abortion and breast cancer. And they surely don’t care about other reproductive cancers because instead of telling women, stop whoring around so you don’t get HPV and end up with cervical cancer, they just give them a vaccine that doesn’t even eliminate the HPV viruses that cause cervical cancer!

It is great to see Utah leading the way and doing what they can to ban abortion once and for all. Though I still think they should eliminate the rape and incest clause because all that does is give rapists access to a law that law abiding citizens do not have! How is that justice! Especially in the case of incest! The rape and incest exemption help the criminals not the women! Abortion needs to be illegal in all cases…period end of story.

I am hoping the members of my church in Utah will give quite handsomely to this fund so we can end the slaughter that much sooner.GOD BLESS UTAH!

  1. Contrary to whatever claims Planned Parenthood may make, I can’t imagine a higher priority for any state than bringing an end to abortion.

    I am confident that any money Utah spends to overturn Roe v. Wade would be returned in kind for their actions.

  2. I agree. People act like there are more pressing matters than abortion. I don’t understand that. What can be more pressing than preserving life at every stage? What can be more pressing than establishing our fundamental right to life? Without the right to life all other rights are meaningless. I don’t understand why people can’t grasp this simplest of concepts.

  3. Reading through a few of your posts, count me as one who does not wonder why you are Mormon. But as a fellow Mormon, I find your lack of logical premise (rape/incest laws protect rapists? seriously? buy yourself a legal theory book. please!) in 9 out of 10 posts here a tragic representation of why Mitt Romney was so openly mocked during the primaries. We can be conservative (both socially and fiscally) without being crazy. Well, some of us can I guess.

    Think before typing. You’re not helping the cause.

  4. Before you call people crazy you should do some research, Planned Parenthood has been caught on several occasions covering up for rapists (most of the time it is statutory rape, but nonetheless it is rape.) Go to ChildPredators.com. Mark Crutcher has documentation of this fact. Girls who have been impregnated via incest often have the perpetrator taking them to the abortion clinic and are forced into an abortion. This is not some “crazy” theory as you would like to believe but then it it easy to label people whose ideas you don’t agree with then to do anything to validate your argument.

    For example, it is commonly assumed that rape victims who become pregnant would naturally want abortions. But in the only major study of pregnant rape victims ever done, Dr. Sandra Mahkorn found that 75 to 85 percent chose against abortion.1 This evidence alone should cause people to pause and reflect on the presumption that abortion is wanted or even best for sexual assault victims. (http://www.afterabortion.org/rape.html)

    “In many cases, we felt pressured to abort by family members, social workers, and doctors who insisted that abortion was the ‘best’ solution,” they wrote. “For many the abortion caused physical and emotional trauma equal to or exceeding the trauma of the sexual assault that our abortions were supposed to ‘cure.'”

    That last quote came from women themselves who sought to go before Congress to tell their stories about being pregnant through sexual assault. So I stand by my opinion, which is obviously more objective than yours. Since I am basing mine on what women who have been through it have had to say about it!

    In any case abortion does protect the incest rapist because he is able to do it again and again without so much as a single charge being leveled at him. I don’t know what your idea of “protection” is but that sounds like protection to me. As demonstrated here: Studies show that incest victims rarely ever voluntarily agree to an abortion. Instead of viewing the pregnancy as unwanted, the incest victim is more likely to see the pregnancy as a way out of the incestuous relationship because the birth of her child will expose the sexual activity. She is also likely to see in her pregnancy the hope of bearing a child with whom she can establish a true loving relationship, one far different than the exploitive relationship in which she has been trapped.

    But while the incest victim may treasure her pregnancy because it offers her hope of release, and the hope of finding a nurturing love, her pregnancy is a threat to the exploiter. It is also a threat to the pathological secrecy which may envelop other members of the family who are afraid to acknowledge that the abuse is occurring. Because of this dual threat, the victim may be coerced into an unwanted abortion by both the abuser and other family members.

    For example, Edith Young, a 12-year-old victim of incest impregnated by her stepfather, writes twenty-five years after the abortion of her child: “Throughout the years I have been depressed, suicidal, furious, outraged, lonely, and have felt a sense of loss… The abortion which was to ‘be in my best interest’ just has not been. As far as I can tell, it only ‘saved their reputations,’ ‘solved their problems,’ and ‘allowed their lives to go merrily on.’… My daughter, how I miss her so. I miss her regardless of the reason for her conception.”

    But I guess Edith is crazy too huh? And if I am not helping the cause, then neither are you because you don’t even want to know the truth do you? And you know what, Christ was considered “crazy” and was openly mocked as well. So I am in good company!
