Barbara Simpson, KSFO radio’s “Babe in the Bunker” weighs in on yesterday’s Walk. Barbara has taken time on her popular show to interview both organizers and speakers this year and in past years too. We are very grateful for her support! This piece was published in World Net Daily:
“The 10th Annual “Walk for Life West Coast” took place in San Francisco on Jan. 25. It was a great success.
Begun in 2005 with some 7,500 people participating, it’s estimated the “Walk” this year had 50,000 people of all ages and religious beliefs in attendance.
At that time, the usual rationale of the pro-abortion mantra was that what was in the woman wasn’t a “baby,” it was just tissue. It wasn’t alive, wasn’t human, wasn’t worthy of concern.
Essentially, if you wanted it, it was a baby; if not, it wasn’t, so getting rid of it was OK.
That really presented problems for obstetricians, who traditionally said that if a woman was pregnant, the doctor really has two patients: the mother and her unborn child.
In the 41 years since the ruling, it’s estimated that at least 55 million babies have been intentionally killed by their own mothers. It’s a procedure this country considers legal.
It’s an interesting thought that if a mother intentionally has her own baby killed in her womb, it’s legal.
But, if a person attacks a pregnant woman and kills her unborn, the attacker can be prosecuted, and could be charged with murder.
Essentially, our law says, if you want it, it’s a baby….”
