Libertarians for Life

*The following excerpt was taken from this blog.

“Libertarians are highly susceptible to the pro-abortion arguement that any law is a gross government intrusion into individual freedom.  Please speak up for life:

  • Roe v. Wade was one of the greatest government intrusions ever. Elitist, activist judges closed the exercise of informed individual thought by shutting down the democratic process. A one-size-fits-all rule was imposed from Washington, DC, with no debate.
  • There is no greater assault on the dignity of the individual than to “define down” humanity. Abortion requires arbitrary and unscientific definitions of “life,” such as Roe v. Wade’s absurd “trimesters” standard.
  • Despite some pro-abortion claims, most elective abortion is not a lofty exercise in moral decision making. It usually involves panic, secrecy and duress. There are many cases in which a woman is coerced by a partner, circle of friends or even family to have an abortion. Her dignity and values are not respected.

If you have Libertarian friends, please discuss this with them. Like all of us, they are prone to go “automatic” and vote based on superficial appeals. They are being told that Measure 11 is “government intrusion in private matters.” In fact, it is a grass roots initiative to defend the dignity of human life that Libertarians value.”

Last Living Founder of Pro-Abortion Group Admits He Lied

SIOUX FALLS, SD – A new television ad carries a riveting twist about abortion history.  Dr. Bernard Nathanson is the last living founder of NARAL, the pro-abortion organization founded in New York in the late 1960s. At one time, he was the nation’s leading abortionist, responsible for more than 75,000 abortions. He explains, “This was the greatest mistake of my life…and the greatest mistake in our nation’s history.”

 

“Dr. Nathanson’s story is a shocking example of one of the nation’s leading abortionists coming out against the tragedy of abortion,” said Brandi Gruis of the Voteyesforlife campaign. The campaign Treasurer, Dr. Patti Giebink, admits she was the last South Dakota doctor to perform abortions at SD Planned Parenthood. Now she is working tirelessly to end abortion on demand. “It speaks volumes when doctors who have personally seen the horror of abortion come out against it,” Gruis said

 

 In the ad, Dr. Nathanson states, “We founded NARAL (National Abortion Rights Action League) with the goal to export our pro-abortion mentality across the land.”  One of the strategies they used to mislead the American public was to deny what they knew to be true, “that an abortion kills an existing human being.”  In June, the U.S. Court of Appeals upheld the South Dakota law requiring abortion providers to tell the pregnant mother that abortion “terminates the life of a whole, separate, unique, living human being”. 

 

Measure 11 clearly seeks to protect these lives, yet unborn.  Measure 11 was written by a panel of 11 legal experts, under the direction of State Attorney General Larry Long with the purpose of ending unnecessary abortions in South Dakota. Gruis says, “The issue is not confusing, neither are the exemptions for life and health of the mother, rape or incest.  The people of South Dakota can end the use of abortion as birth control by voting yes on Measure 11 on November 4th.” For more information or to see the new ads, visit http://www.voteyesforlife.com.

What if…?

If a woman’s belly were transparent, would abortion still be legal?

South Dakota’s 2008 Abortion Measure

Although a proposed measure prohibiting abortion in South Dakota two years ago didn’t muster enough support for passage, pro-life groups say the revised abortion [measure] – which provides exceptions in cases of rape, incest or when the mother’s life is in danger – will stand a better chance of becoming law.

This is exactly what the people of South Dakota have been asking for…(read more)
