Opinion and Commentary – Donna Westfall December 21, 2023

The year is 1973. Roe v Wade goes into effect. America is told that taxpayers will not be footing the bill on abortion.

Back in the 1970’s, 90% of America identified as Christians. That number has steadily declined since then.

“Since 1970, weekly church attendance among Catholics has dropped from 55% to 20%, the number of priests declined from 59,000 to 35,000 and the number of people who left Catholicism increased from under 2 million in 1975 to over 30 million today.” (Per Wikipedia)

What does the Bible say about abortion? Simply put, abortion is murder. It is the killing of a human being created in the image of God.

What about atheists who do not believe God is in the equation, but still believe in science. What does science tell us? That life begins at conception and those who consider themselves non-religious want to defend life.

Approximately 64 million abortions have taken place since 1973. The USA’s population is currently 340 million. It could have been at over 400,000,000. Instead as a nation, we’ve jumped on the “a woman’s choice” bandwagon and take in millions immigrants from other nations without much scrutiny.

50 years later, Roe v Wade is overturned by the US Supreme Court. Now, it’s up to the states to decide.

California is inviting anyone and everyone to come to our state and get an abortion. Guess who’s paying for it?

Now on the other hand, Governor Gavin Newsom doesn’t believe in the death penalty. Individuals who have made horrible choices are spared when he put a moratorium in place in 2019, ““The intentional killing of another person is wrong and as Governor, I will not oversee the execution of any individual,” said Governor Newsom.

What does he say to those families who are grieving the death of a loved one due to murder(s)?

The death penalty for fetuses is distinctly another issue in the mind of our Governor.

“Radical politicians continue their all out assault on women’s health care with dangerous and deadly consequences. The right to an abortion is enshrined in California’s constitution.” Sep 27, 2023

Who pays for abortions in California? Both Medi-Cal and private health insurance plans in California are required to cover all abortions.  Medi-Cal is California’s Medicaid health care program.

Who pays for Medicaid? Combined Federal and State tax dollars. In other words, the taxpayers.

Which state spends the most on Medicaid? Answer: California.

Our own Vice President, Kamala Harris has had no children of her own. She is “momala” (instead of stepmom) to her husbands two sons. Her vision for the 2024 election is to awaken the nation with this, “I will continue to fight for our fundamental freedoms while bringing together those throughout America who agree that every woman should have the right to make decisions about her own body — not the government,” Harris said in a recent statement.

Where was this “every woman should have the right to make decisions about her own body” talk when Kamala Harris pushed the COVID-19 vaccine on Americans across the country? (credit to The Daily Conservative December 19, 2023).

Talk about hypocrisy.

  1. There are many reasons a women may need en abortion, rape, incest, loss of life, medical problems, homeless, it can’t be easy for a women to make these decisions.

    1. True, and that’s why abortion needs to remain legal. However, with 64 million abortions performed, since 1973 the majority are not for rape, incest, medical problems, or homelessness
      but rather for convenience. Back in 1973, when Roe v Wade became law of the land, only 1% were for rape and incest. That percentage has not gone up much in the last 50 years. My biggest
      complaint about abortion though is having it funded with taxpayer monies.

  2. Abortion needs to be rationally discussed. Most people think abortion is the intentional murder of a child. However, that could not be further from the truth.
    When you have an ectopic pregnancy which is usually loged in the fallopian tube, a doctor must remove the baby because it can cause death if fallopian tube busts. That is called an abortion.
    Recently a Texas woman who has become septic 4 months into her pregnancy is lying in wait. Her doctor has to prove that she will die from this pregnancy unless the baby is removed. Because there are extremist on both sides of the fence she can’t be attended to.
    Extremist don’t care if the mother dies.
    I don’t want to align myself with such ignorance.
    Although I am pro life, I recognize I was not placed on this earth to save other peoples salvation. As such, I would not want to interfere with a woman’s decision of what is healthy for her.
    In my opinion, The Supreme Court of the United States actually took away equal protection of the law under the 14th Amendment when they intervened with Roe VS. Wade. Allowing Extremist to govern by placing women’s health in jeopardy is not alright.

  3. California this is the reason higher taxes, just wait until Newsom puts the illegals on Medicaid,
    medicare, welfare, just how will the schools adjust for all the different languages think about this
    California, you will pay and pay until you are squeezed dry.
