Yes… how much longer? Dear Lord, bring it to an end…
Read this and this. The Republicans pandered to these kooks. Let’s keep it simple. No one has a right to harbour communicable disease. No one has the right to be a Typhoid Mary. The REAL Church is NOT against vaccination and public health measures (as far as the konvertsy are concerned, they’re marginal and peripheral, thank God). The Republicans who pander to the anti-vaxxers also call themselves “Pro-Life”… their support for these nuts gives you the true measure of that… oh, those Einsteins also believe that President Obama was born in Kenya, that Michelle Obama is a transsexual, and that were huge conspiracies behind the JFK assassination, 9/11, and covering up Area 51 (“They keep a real alien spaceship hidden there”). Need I say more? Pass the jug…
I didn’t wake up one day and say, ”I’m gonna have cereal for breakfast and an abortion for lunch”. It was a difficult decision. It was also a decision that I’ve thought about every day for twelve years. It left deep emotional scars. Even though it was the right thing at that time in my life, it wasn’t something I wanted to do. People that stand outside of clinics with those signs are assholes. They aren’t Christian. They screamed at me and made the most difficult day of my life a million times more difficult. I’m not alone, either. I’m sure millions of other women have had the same experience. Therefore, if you’re one of those people holding up pictures of bloody foetuses and screaming “murderer” outside of a clinic, prepare yourself for hell because if you believe it exists, that’s where you’re going.
I need add nothing. I HATE the Pro-Life Movement as it’s a shameless whore for the US Republican Party… a faction that upholds perpetual warfare in foreign parts, torture, the TSA Gestapo, the Department of Homeland Security Cheka, the enriching of the Affluent Effluent at the expense of the rest of us, the gutting of Social Security, and destroying the social safety net. That’s NOT “Pro-Life”. If you’re in the so-called “Pro-Life Movement”, I oppose you and all of your works, as they go towards upholding an objectively evil political movement, one so evil that it merits the label “demonic” (for no man can serve two masters).
I don’t like abortion… I think that we should do our best to limit it… however, the present Pro-Life Movement is a sham and an imposture, and I’ll have nothing to do with it. By the way, I’m not the only Russian Orthodox person in the USA to feel this way. To oppose the Pro-Life Movement is NOT to endorse abortion. I oppose the hypocritical politicisation of this serious issue and its hijacking by amoral monsters such as Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio. Don’t forget how Cruz virtually spat in the face of Arab religious leaders… you want to support such godless sectarian filth? Now, that negates one’s Christianity…
