“He alone, who owns the youth, gains the future” – Adolf Hitler
Depending on whose numbers you believe, Massachusetts ranks anywhere between 5th and 10th in the nation for highest per-capita taxes. Apparently, they’ve run out of good uses for all that revenue, and have started funding some rather fantastic propaganda. The Boston Herald is reporting that a state-funded website, called “mariatalks.com,” features a fictional “hip” young teen (named Maria, of course), who helps put young teenage women at ease over any trepidations they may have involving a potential abortion (story here).
Some of the better quotes:
- “[abortion is] more common than you might think”
- “[abortion is] safe and effective, though some people may experience temporary discomfort”
- “The reality of getting an abortion is much easier than it sounds here”
- “[adoption] can be pretty tough for some people, especially emotionally”
- [with regards to seeking a special hearing from a judge to circumvent state parental notification laws]: “I know it sounds crazy . . . this really can be done and young women do this all the time here in Massachusetts.”
Oh my. Let me see. In the first four we have the following train of thought: Abortion is common, abortion is safe (the only real risk is temporary discomfort), abortion is easy to get, but adoption can be emotionally difficult. Could this be a more clear message? “Abortion good, adoption bad.”
The last quote is even more disturbing – getting around parental notification laws is really very commonplace and kids are doing it all the time. They just barely stopped short of saying “it’s the cool way to go.”
OK, propaganda happens. That there are people out there who would encourage abortion is not surprising. There are people out there who encourage you to drink Pepsi – and it has nothing to do with your health, or refreshment, or coolness – it’s about their bottom line. The makers of Pepsi-Cola want you to drink as much as possible, so they encourage you to do so.
By the same token, there are groups and organizations out there who make a handsome profit by providing abortions. (Anybody remember Kermit Gosnell?) So, there will always be somebody encouraging young women who find themselves pregnant to kill their babies – and it has nothing to do with the health or well-being of the mothers, and everything to do with profits.
What is most disconcerting is the use of taxpayer dollars to fund this operation. We use taxpayer dollars to provide abortions (originally “indirectly” through Planned Parenthood and others – but now directly under Obamacare), then we use taxpayer dollars to encourage more abortions. Were profits down? Was the government subsidy not enough? We also had to subsidize the advertisement for abortions?
Understand, to the Christian this is the stuff the Third Reich or Mao’s Cultural Revolution. The state has taken action to kill babies, particularly those to be born to young teenagers. The state has participated in and encouraged the genocide. Oh sure, they will claim that it is all for the best. “These teenage girls aren’t ready to be mothers.” “The children would have torn and broken homes – not a fitting environment to raise the next generation.” “[Insert inane rhetoric to justify murder here.]”
We’ve heard it all before. “We know that these clashes with Asia and Jewry are necessary for evolution” – Heinrich Himmler. “Unless we expel the Jewish people soon, they will have judaized our people within a very short time” – Adolf Hitler. “Our present task is to strengthen the people’s state apparatus–mainly the people’s army, the people’s police and the people’s courts–in order to consolidate national defense and protect the people’s interests” – Mao Zedong. Abortion is a young lady’s “best choice . . . for herself, her boyfriend, her family and her future” – mariatalks.com.
