Wear a Condom for World Peace!

Glenn Greenwald went on for paragraph after paragraph in Salon Magazine http://www.salon.com/opinion/greenwald/2007/12/22/klein/index.html going on and on about why he still deserves to live even though he’s considering voting for a pro-life Republican, namely Dr. Ron Paul, for president.

It is stunning to me how many people would rather have an abortion than have world peace. It seems pretty selfish to me. But I guess that’s what having an abortion is all about. Men who don’t want to take responsibility for their offspring. It has absolutely nothing to do with women’s rights if you ask me, and I have always been female. It has to do with the assumption that women must earn a living or else they are a drain on society.

Glenn Greenwald wrote:

“There’s no question that abortion — whatever one’s views on it are — is a vital, even central issue of individual rights… But abortion isn’t the only important issue… of Paul’s candidacy.”

There are actually a lot of questions about what are the most vital issues concerning the individual rights of women, and how abortion fits into that picture. If you ask me, abortion is a distraction from the three fundamental rights of sexually active women.

Marriage – the promise of a man to provide for his offspring and fulfill the needs of his woman.

Dowry – a gift given from the man to the woman to legitimize his interest in her.

Maintenance – all expenses paid (food, clothing, shelter, medical care) for life.

In the ideal world, every woman should and would demand this from any man seeking to enjoy her. Abortion “on demand and without apology” destroys this ancient security net for women.

“If people who support a candidate with the wrong position on abortion (or gay rights) can be accused of being indifferent to the rights of women or gay people, then — by the same exact “reasoning” — those who end up supporting candidates who affirm America’s right to act as an imperial power or who want to continue many of Bush’s executive power abuses [as Hillary Clinton certainly does and as even Barack Obama and (to a lesser extent) John Edwards do] should be accused of being indifferent to constitutional liberties, the rule of law, and the lives of millions of innocent Muslims,” continues Greenwald.

I do not presume to know what the “right” position is on abortion. Neither does Ron Paul. He doesn’t let his personal feelings get in the way of the Constitution. He says leave it up to the state. There is no way New York Jews are ever going to criminalize abortion. So it’s a non-issue.

  1. Libertarian is not the same as Moral and Constitutional. If Ron Paul can’t come out against abortion, which is clearly murder motivated by the desire of men to fornicate, then RP is simply playing games and is not even a serious candidate; especially not in moral terms. More and more I am seeing that he is a pawn of the Bushite machine to draw attention away from the criminal activities of der Fuerher King Georgi. Anyone want to guess which Middle Eastern country King Georgi will start nuclear WWIII with to please his owners — the ZioNazi Yisraelis? Syria or Lebanon, nope. Pakistan or Iran, big potential there. End game if he does. Reminds me of Dr. Strangelove or How I Stopped Worrying and Learned to Love the Bomb. God’s judgement on men; if we can’t even defend little infants in the womb and we can’t stand up for the Palestinians or the inhabitants of Darfur or central Africa, then maybe it is time for the swift and terrible Judgement of God to come upon the earth. God may just be preparing in this regard, to unleash the Antichrist also known as the Dajjal upon the world.

  2. I take back nothing I said about the judgement of God, but someone emailed me a correction about Ron Paul and abortion and I share it with you now. It is this link. Please read it. http://www.ronpaul2008.com/files/ProLifeSlimJim.pdf
