March 11, 2003 – Melissa Lindsley is a 15-year-old 10th-grader from Sacramento and has been a member of the nonprofit group Teens For Life for the past three years.
�…Abortion is murder; it kills innocent human beings,� Melissa said. �Once people see that abortion is wrong, they know it and are going to take a stand against it.�
Depictions of Ku Klux Klan lynchings, bodies of Jews murdered during the Holocaust, and the mass graves of Rwandan murder victims are featured. The group�s members say abortion is another form of genocide, comparable to these historical examples of mass killing.
To counter the display, the UCD Campus National Organization for Women set up a table nearby with informational fliers and boxes to collect money for the nonprofit organization Planned Parenthood, which is a major target of the Teens For Life display. By 2:30 p.m. Monday, they had collected $415.
She said the comparison of abortion to genocide is �a gross misrepresentation.�
�Connecting racist issues to abortion is wrong,� del Calvo said. �To compare it to Nazism and to organizations like the KKK is wrong.�
Just because many of the woman seeking abortions in the U.S. are African-Americans, there are also many other ethnic groups that seek abortion. Pro-aborts are for the equal murdering of the unborn children of all races, no discrimination there. Just because Planned Parenthood started as a racist eugenics organization it is now just coincidence that the majority of their clinics are in neighborhoods heavily populated by minorities.
UCD fifth-year senior Lee Weissmann said he was personally offended by the connection between mass murder and legal abortion.
Personally offended? Seeing pictures of aborted children doesn’t faze him but the connection to genocide is highly offensive to him? I am personally offended that he isn’t personally offended by legalized abortion.
�I understand they have the right to speak because of the First Amendment,� Weissmann said. �[But] a woman�s right to choose is not the same as genocide, period.�
I have often wondered if all pro-abortion advocates have a string with a ring located somewhere on their body. Pull the string and you instantly get “woman’s right to chose.”
