Innocent blood: How lying marketers sold Roe v. Wade to America

What about the women having the abortions? Do they see the ultrasound? " They are never allowed to look at the ultrasound because we knew that if they so much as heard the heartbeat, they wouldn't want to have the abortion," said Randall. ...We would put them down a flush toilet - that's where we would put these babies." began to educate me as to what abortion really was. ...I began to feel like a paid assassin. ...a mysterium tremendum. ...When we honestly face the sheer barbarism and brutality of abortion - some of which amounts to infant torture and murder - we're left with a dilemma. ...Whereas once upon a time pregnant mothers were respectfully, lovingly referred to as being " with child" . ...If an abortionist or " pro-choicer" looks at a " fetus," his eyes will see a perfectly formed human child - for that is what a fetus actually is... We're dealing with very deep denial here. ...Bypassing reason, he appealed directly and intensely to raw emotion and he radically altered their perception of reality. ...over the last few decades our nation embraced the notion that total sexual freedom, without marriage, without restriction of any kind, is a right - an entitlement. We've been seduced into separating sexuality from its God-ordained purpose - the sanctified union between husband and wife, within the protective confines of marriage, from which issues the most precious of all things - our children. We have abandoned reason and self-restraint in favor of the self-indulgent fulfillment of our personal desires and lusts. And logically, if sex without consequences is the top priority - which it has become - then abortion simply has to be OK, no matter what. Roe v. Wade America, legalizing something is immensely powerful in persuading people of the moral acceptability of immoral acts. In fact, for a great many people, legal equals moral. ....Today, in America, the unborn baby is the obvious victim of the abortion holocaust. But there are other victims. Vulnerable young women are deceived by manipulative counselors and unscrupulous " health professionals" into believing their unborn babies are not human, only to find out too late, in the recovery room or shortly thereafter, that they ended the lives of their own children. ...

In truth, millions of people who think of themselves as "pro-choice" are victims of sophisticated marketing campaigns, designed to appeal to their deepest feelings about freedom and equality, while simultaneously hooking them through powerful appeals to their selfishness.

Understand that marketing evil is different from marketing blue jeans. In the commercial world, you profile people in your target market and map out strategies for selling to them. You're appealing to them, yes, but you're not changing them, just understanding their mental-emotional-cultural makeup and reaching in and pushing buttons to elicit the desired response.

In marketing evil, however, a much more profound process is at work. You're in the business of changing, seducing, corrupting people. And the way back is not so easy - because we all exist in a state of pride, which means we don't like to see we've done something wrong. So, once we've been tempted to cross the line - in this case, to have an abortion - our very consciousness and loyalties often change.

In the same way, many of the physicians who perform abortions have also been victims of sorts, pressured to do so by an amoral and cowardly medical establishment. Each in his own way has fallen prey to the appealing rhetoric of the abortion marketer who justifies their destructive acts and anesthetizes their consciences. ...medical students go against their conscience by learning to perform abortions because their residency chief insists they must if they ever want to become doctors. ...The fact that the med student's future career is at stake provides a strong inducement for him to give up his principles to fulfill the requirements for success in his chosen field. ...

The Bible describes this seduction process whereby we ignore our conscience so we can obtain some perceived advantage, as well as the spiritual blindness that is our only real reward:

Hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and not perceive: For the heart of this people is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes have they closed; lest they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.

- Acts 28:26-27

From its inception in the 1960s, America's legal and cultural embrace of abortion has been based on lies, deception, greed and monumental selfishness. Bernard Nathanson courageously exposed the cynical marketing campaign he led - the fabricated statistics, the slogans, the issue positioning by public relations professionals and the cowardly cooperation of a servile news media. The other repentant abortion providers profiled here further illustrate the emotional manipulation and deceit - not to mention the betrayal, suffering and death - that have characterized the abortion movement from the start.

There's not enough room to go into detail about Norma McCorvey - the original " Jane Roe" on behalf of whom the Roe v. Wade case was fought and won. Guess what? McCorvey now admits Roe v. Wade was a fraud, and that she was " used" by abortion-rights attorneys in their quest to legalize the procedure. In fact, in 2003 McCorvey filed suit in federal court to have Roe v. Wade overturned. Among her 5,437 pages of evidence were affidavits from more than 1,000 women who testified that having an abortion had devastating emotional, physical and psychological effects on them. Today, McCorvey is passionately and publicly committed to undoing the damage she did in her earlier years and putting the abortion genie back in the bottle.

In truth, it's one thing to make a person do something wrong by deceiving him into thinking that it was right, but it is quite another thing to get him to face the fact that it was wrong, and that he has been deceived....self-deception, like a rubber band, can be stretched only so far before it breaks or snaps back to normal....Will we one day tour through the wreckage of our own culture of death and weep?
