Flipping the “Freedom Rides” Concept on Its Head

<pro-life freedom bus

On July 12, 2013 I blogged about the ‘Abortion Rights Freedom Rides’ the Pro-Abortion Movement is having which began Tuesday, July 23 in New York and San Francisco.

Let me explain why I chose the title I did. Remember we’ve been looking at a three headed monster? Well the so called abortion “freedom” rides are linked to that monster.

The Freedom Rides of 1961 were held to fight for the rights of Black Americans. Those rights, the right to be free of discrimination, which were being denied, if given, would not infringe on the rights of other citizens.

In 2010 Priests for Life held the Pro-Life Freedom Rides to fight for the rights of the unborn. Those rights, the right to life, which are being denied, if given, would not infringe on the rights of other citizens.

But the ‘Abortion Rights Freedom Rides’ are being held to protect rights which are infringing on the rights of other Americans, the unborn. The exact opposite if the Freedom Rides and the Pro-Life Freedom Rides.

In the 20th century Freedom Rides, the ones whose rights were being denied had done nothing in order to be in the situation they were in. They were African Americans who were expressing the desire to be treated as equal human beings, not second class citizens. They wanted their rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

In the Pro-Life Freedom Rides, the ones whose rights are being denied also did nothing in order to be in the situation in which they found themselves in, which of course is the womb of their mothers with the threat of abortion and imminent death looming over them.

In contrast, the ‘Abortion Rights Freedom Rides,’ the ones whose rights are supposedly being denied are in the situation that they are in because of choices they are making regarding aborting the human beings in their wombs. Whether or not the situation that caused the state of pregnancy involved consent or coercion or force, a pregnancy brings yet another human into the picture; a person in a womb which modern ultrasound technology affirms is a person.

Some fighting for abortion rights are doing so because they are profiting from abortion and they don’t want their income to go away. Those in this category are very dishonest to the women they are pretending to “protect” because they don’t even fully disclose all of the harmful effects of abortion – not to the child, but – to the mother. Abortion and related products and procedures that seek to prevent a woman from birthing a live baby are often very harmful to the bodies and souls of the mothers. Abortion and invasive birth control methods are often linked to breast cancer and other forms of cancer and disorders. Contrary to lies of the pro-abortion industry, pregnancy is not a sickness or a disease.

One of the most frustrating things for me in my pro-life work is that people think that they have the right to have sex without the consequences of the outcome; hence abortion, the Pro-Choice movement, and now the Bro-Choice movement. The actual purpose of sex is to cause a man and a woman to procreate, to get pregnant and birth a baby. So why isn’t the ProChoice community admitting this? The agenda of the ProChoice Movement is to promote hyper-sexed activity for a profit.

One of the biggest culprits pushing this mentality is Planned Parenthood and why wouldn’t they? They have much to gain from this type of behavior. Even as I prepare this blog, Planned Parenthood is in your local schools instructing your children to experiment with sex, with many sexual partners and with same sex partners. Under the guise of protection, they distribute contraceptives, many time free of charge, knowing that there is always a percentage that will conceive children and the users of their products will soon be seeking their services.

As I am writing this I feel like I’m comparing good vs. evil; one being the opposite of the other.

I believe that many agree that the 20th Century Freedom Rides and fighting for civil rights was a just cause. Logic should lead us to conclude that the ProLife Freedom Rides were for justice as well. Based upon conclusive evidence that abortion kills babies, and harms and sometimes kills mothers, we should logically conclude that rides to promote abortion and harmful contraceptives are not good. So do we want to ride for good justice or for evil? I’ll let you draw your own conclusions regarding the what a good freedom ride is, and what is not.
