President of NARAL: Choosing abortion is religious liberty

Lila Rose was asked on Crossfire tonight why she believes a woman should be forced to carry her baby to term in the case of rape (question heavily loaded by leftist host) and Lila responded with a great answer about why she believes that baby’s life should be protected and why having an abortion doesn’t ‘unrape’ a woman. You should watch the clip just to hear her answer.



Toward the end the President of NARAL, Ilyse Hogue, chimes in and condescendingly says that her choice to have an abortion is what religious liberty is all about:

Isn’t it great that we live in a country where Lila Rose could decide that she would choose to carry her rapist pregnancy to term, but her version of morality doesn’t actually dictate what I can choose to do in that moment. And that’s what religious liberty is about. It’s about you getting to chose what would be right for you in that circumstance but I don’t get to tell you what to do and you don’t get to tell me what to do.

Moral relavitism once again. When are you people going to decloak and/or wake up. Geez, carry a baby in your womb and feel it kick is all one has to do to understand it. Speak to it and the baby moves within. How hard is that to believe. STUPID STUPID STUPID lady on this show. I can’t believe the stupidity. You know that demons control a person when they are so stupid and it’s so very obvious that they are stupid as they aren’t very cunning at hidding their stupidity due to pride and arrogance. Again, pure stupidity but it is so blarringly obvious…not to mention Sam NOT SALLY is arrogant enought to dress like a man on national television convinced that we accept her as a man liking and sleeping with other women! She is a women who who gets a rise out of sleeping with other woman. Sally/Sam… Read more »

My usual reply to this question is: “Do you hold that abortion should be legal only in the case of rape? If not then why are you bringing it up since it constitutes 2% or less of abortions performed?”
To their insistence I reply “If you can tell me that you support abortion only in the case of rape, then I am able to answer your question based on your reasons for doing so. If you don’t then my answer is inconsequential to the topic at hand.”
The irony is that those who support abortion only in the case of rape do not ask this question, at least not that I have ever heard.

Pregnancy by rape creates two victims by one aggressor. Abortion kills one of the victims often allowing the rapist to further victimize the other.

One of those women said that 70% of people agree concerning aborting a baby conceived due to rape. What if 70% of people agreed that it was ok to euthanize a child because it was mentally deficient? Would that make it ok? What if 70% of the people decided that robbing a bank is ok? Should we do it? Murder is wrong! Period.

From survey’s I’ve seen, about .5% (less than 1%) of abortions are due to rape/incest.
And, you’re right. It’s no excuse to kill an innocent human being.

If the moronic lefties are now claiming abortion as an exercise in religious freedom than we must get government out of the business of paying for abortions. That would be a clear case of the government supporting one particular religion over another and that is clearly a violation of the 1st Amendment. Never interfere with an enemy on their way to self-defeat!

As stated below in the comments, Ilyse Hogue is absolutely right regarding her religious “right” to murder the unborn. She serves Satan and Satan requires the blood of the innocent.

Wow, so it is now deemed “extreme” to be against the termination of the life of a third trimester baby!!!! Really? “Extreme?” I suppose it will soon be extreme if we were to be against the termination of the lives of one year olds who have cerebral palsy….being done as some form of “mercy killing”. Extreme? Extreme to value innocent human life? Really? And it’s not extreme to support one’s “choice” to kill their baby living in the womb at 36 weeks along!!!??? Man, how much uglier can it possibly get?

Rush is right…as usual. Abortion is as much of a pagan religious ceremony (though admittedly without them thinking of it as such…at least I hope they aren’t consciously thinking of it this way) as anything. It’s human sacrifice. It’s child murder.

If you look in the Old Testament, why did God judge the Canaanites and drive them out ahead of the Israelites? One of the big reasons was that they were sacrificing their children to a false god called Molech. Abortion is no different, though on a much more vast scale.

If this country is destroyed at some point, I would not be surprised. God has a way of judging people who turn away from Him. And America is certainly doing that with this genocide of unborn children going on every day.

It’s horrific.

blame society! Blame everything but the shooter!

Liberality has become a religion. A religion that is schizophrenically saying there is no god, casting yourself as a god, and saying “nature” is a god, simultaneously. It mandates that if you love your god/non-god, you should be willing to ritually murder your own children on the altar of this new, golden calf. It says that your sins – and the sins of unbelievers – are causing damage to the god/non-god, in the form of AGW/Climate Change. This religion even has prophets, such as Barack Obama, who is on par with Muhammad, himself.

Pro abortion people and their talking points make me shake my head. It is not “reproductive health”, “pro choice”, “women’s health choice” or any other sanitized, invented definition. Those are politically correct logic pretzels that are used to make people feel better about themselves and to make it more palatable for society. If you choose to do it, I’m not going to pass judgment on you. That’s not my place, or anyone elses. Just call it what it is. Every mammal species on the planet does it in some form or another. Civilization is what is supposed to separate us from the animal kingdom. Ironic that humans do it more than any other species on the planet. It’s called Prolicide, killing one’s own young. In the womb, it’s Feticide. For partial birth, it’s called Infanticide. Calling it what it is isn’t conducting a “war on women” or any other such… Read more »

Hey, Beeotch, be sure to mention this idea to the Lord when you visit with him after your death. I’m sure He’ll be very impressed with how easily you dismiss the life of an unborn child. There will be a very special place prepared for you in the “other place”.

Yes it is a religious decision to those who have appointed themselves as god. The moral people whom remain opposed to this infanticide see it as murder and sinful. What about the rights of the natural person, whom if left to be full term? are they not human? Are their rights not violated. There is a judge, where there is no appeal, who looks into the heart of man and see’s their sins, and who through the blood of our Lord and Savior, will forgive those who trust and believe in Him. To the unbeliever, and idolater, The wrath and fire. Repent America and be healed. 55 million souls cry out to heaven as testimony against you.

Abortion IS a religious decision? In what world? In what universe? What religion would sanction the murder of innocents? Oh wait! NOW I get it! In the “religion” of marxism, death is sanctioned as a proper tool of the totalitarian utopian state. Why, it’s perfectly alright to murder babies inside the womb, or even ‘partially’ outside it. And heck, they have no problem with allowing the deaths of the sick and lame and old farts who can not or WILL NOT serve the state! What we tend to forget in the face of the myriad problems we face every day is that the left’s spokespeople speak FOR the totalitarian view at EVERY opportunity. Just make sure that you never forget that in almost all of their speaking points, DEATH seems to be a central theme, and that their utopian ‘government’ is the entity who gets to decide who lives and… Read more »

Ah yes. If they acknowledge that their ideologies of Socialism, communism, and Marxism are, in reality, just worldy forms of religion they would have to remove it from government sponsorship, and we all know the only thing the left respects about the Constitution is the part that isn’t even in it; the separation of church and state.

I’m shocked that the elitist baby killers would ‘lower’ themselves to debate Lila Rose on national television.

It is funny how Ilyse Hogue had to jump in and try to shut Lila with the old worn out talking points that she didn’t have to support.

Lila did a great job and made a lot of sense. Of course, truth was on her side.

If you want to make a conservative mad, lie to him/her.
If you want to make a liberal mad, tell it the truth.

I’m not aware that these lesbians and feminists are protesting en mass that men and women teachers sexual abuse of kids is on the rise. I’m not aware of their protests that with recidivism rates of rapists, leftist judges give lenient sentences. They are however willing to kill the baby?

Compassion, nurturing, motherhood have been bred out of existence by these feminists and lesbians. I didn’t hear their outrage when Clinton abused women or Bloomberg told them what the can and can’t eat.
These women accuse men of being barbarians and fighting wars, yet they themselves approve of the murder of a defenseless child, in or out of the womb.

God gave us religious freedom in the form of free will, you choose to accept his saving grace or you choose to ignore it by distorting the meaning. You can twist it up like a pretzel if you like, this is your right but it will always come down to accepting the free grift offered or not.
