Thousands Brave Freezing Temps to ‘March for Life’ in Washington D.C. that the media almost completely ignored.

January 23, 2014
You may not have heard about it – the broadcast networks gave it only 46 seconds of news time – but hundreds of thousands of anti-abortion protestors from all walks of life gathered on the national mall Wednesday to march to the Supreme Court

At the 41st annual March for Life, hundreds of youth groups, families, churches and religious leaders were there, as expected. But also college groups, women’s health organizations, Latino groups, and even pro-life gay alliances were in attendance, along with a number of U.S. Senators and Representatives, to mark the anniversary of Roe v. Wade.

If a candidate

was pro-rape you would immediately become a single issue voter.

Murder isn't acceptable just because the human is hidden in the womb.

"Once you become knowledgeable, you have an obligation to do something about it."- Ron Paul

That is stupid

A person could not even become a candidate if they were "pro-rape".

I wasn't defending abortion, if you actually could read and comprehend English you would understand.

"In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot."--Mark Twain

Single issue voting isn't stupid

if its an essential issue. Would you say that William Wilberforce was a fool for opposing the slave trade for decades until parliament voted to end it?

Those who believe that a baby is a human individual that deserves rights cannot in good conscience support a candidate that supports the ability to kill a human for convenience.

"Once you become knowledgeable, you have an obligation to do something about it."- Ron Paul

That is a fallacious argument

That is actually the reverse of what a single-issue voter is. I never said anyone should vote against their conscience and vote for a pro-abortion candidate. First, you are making the assumption that you have to vote for only two people with opposite positions. That is a false assumption because you don't have to vote for either one.

No, you are a single-issue voter if you vote for someone for that one position alone. It would be like voting for Romney solely because he is anti-abortion, ignoring the fact that he wants to kill thousands of little brown children because their parents are Muslims, he is a fascist, a constitution-hater and a warmonger for Israel. That is the moral depravity of a single-issue voter.

"In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot."--Mark Twain

This makes no sense

The single issue is abortion.

As long as a candidate supports abortion. They will never get my vote regardless of their other positions or policies in other areas.

This is what it means to be a single issue voter and I am one.

Now last election for president there were a few that were pro-life so I had a couple of options and I chose one of them.

"Once you become knowledgeable, you have an obligation to do something about it."- Ron Paul

The difference is

You have one necessary requirement that must be met in order to consider voting for someone. The other approach would be to vote for whomever supported your one issue regardless of their positions on other issues, which is kind of silly because then you are just blindly saying that this one thing is more important than any other issue and you wouldn't care what kind of destruction a candidate is capable of as long as your one pet issue was pushed forward. Maybe that is what you are saying. If so, I don't think that is a good position to take. You might want to re-evaluate a bit...

Well

Don't assume the worst of me there.

For instance there are tons of Repubs that claim they care about abortion but have done nothing about it. W. Bush is a good example there. As someone who loves Ron Paul you can know that I pay attention and listen to candidates speeches and read their positions as well as bills they sponsor and legislation they vote on. With that being said, the abortion issue is a deal breaker for me if they are shady on their positions in that area. One example there would be Gary Johnson.

"Once you become knowledgeable, you have an obligation to do something about it."- Ron Paul

Nevermind....

Common sense and logic are needed.

"In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot."--Mark Twain

Sorry but the Ron Paul march was childs play compared to

the numbers the March for Life continues to improve upon year after year. Its tens of thousands vs. hundreds of thousands.

So who cares that it happens every year. Are you serious? This is called a movement and this is their show of force, which again grows every year.

In fact, the media does cover the March every year. The LSM typically finds the handful of pro-abortion protestors and covers them and undercuts hundreds of thousands of people to a few thousand people (I suspect this is where you got your numbers straight for lying media). Just another example of the deplorable state our media is in.

Lose the Mark Twain signature, it is unbecoming of someone who isn't vigilant enough to critically think these issues.

Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.

Blah, Blah

I was in pro-life marches 20 years ago. There were even more then. Your false claim that it is growing has no basis in fact.

I am a patriot - which has nothing to do with abortion. It has to do with the Constitution and anti-democracy.

I notice you don't address the bulk of my post - typical.

"In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot."--Mark Twain

What is more important than saving one innocent life?

Stop feeling sorry for yourself. If Dr Paul let his failed campaign affect him like you've let it done, he'd be holed up in his house in Texas right now. Life didn't end for him when they intentionally scuttled and frauded his campaign. He found new ways to reach out, to expand the ideas of liberty and justice. But maybe it's because he really believes this is what he's been put on this earth for.

Are you on this earth to diminish and revile what othes do to protect the sanctity of life, even if it be the narrow focus of abortion? How sad.

If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy.
James Madison

Hmm....

How about saving one million innocent lives?

If Christians spent the same energy stopping the genocide in the Middle East for the last 20 years a thousand times more lives would have been saved.

"In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot."--Mark Twain

There is roughly about 1.2

There is roughly about 1.2 million abortions annually in the U.S. That is about 24 million abortions in 20 years. Times 1000 in the mid east as a result of the U.S.?

Obviously both issues need attention to a lot of us, however if my horrible math skills are correct, you are estimating 24 billion dead in the mid east. A bit high.

Actually

There are less than half a million each year - and that is a high estimate.

"In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot."--Mark Twain

Ok, so lets go with a total

Ok, so lets go with a total of 10 billion instead of 24, that is still way off your death estimates for the Mideast.

Bump

Bump

If we could only get this same group to be pro-life when it

comes to the murderous wars perpetrated on the people of the middle east.

Christians should not be warmongers! http://www.lewrockwell.com/vance/vance87.html

I am pro-life for fetuses and

I am pro-life for fetuses and middle easterners. I am consistent, how bout u?

of course. at least I always strive to be.

I made my previous comment

I made my previous comment before I saw some of your other comments.

Why should "this" group do it?

What don't all the "anti-war" people have protests all over this country? Why do they not have thousands marching in DC? At least the anti-abortionist believe in their cause enough to march -
when people have a cause they believe then they should get out and march for their own cause - not expect others to do it for them.
The anti-war protestors helped bring our boys home in the 60's - what are they doing now?

Because most of "this" group thinks that God will bless our

nation if we outlaw abortion. But, they turn right around and support the murder of brown-skinned people. I am part of "this" group by the way, but their hypocrisy is disheartening.

Can't change others

but we can change ourselves.

"Once you become knowledgeable, you have an obligation to do something about it."- Ron Paul

I respect your enthusiasm

but disagreeing with what someone "thinks" is not justifiable reason to insist how/why someone should protest...
The anti-feds can protest - do they have to be anti-abortion and anti-war as well? NO
The anti-illegal drugs can protest - do they have to be anti-fed or anti-war as well? NO
Do the anti-war people have to be anti-abortionist as well? NO

So why do the anti-abortionist have to be anti-war?
We all have our passionate beliefs - let each fight for the rights they believe in without being chastised for not meeting every other worthy agenda.

I also believe the lives lost in banker wars are equally important - however, over 5 million babies have been aborted just since 2008 - so perhaps the anti-abortionist have some reason to be concerned about those statistics.

I never said they shouldn't protest, I just wish they would have

the same respect for all innocent lives. I believe this nation would really have a chance if they did. That's all I was saying.

Another sad commentary

What good do you do when you disparage the work these people are doing? You point your finger at them forgetting that 3 fingers are pointing back at you.

If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy.
James Madison

I was not disparaging what they are doing, but that doesn't

mean they do not hold a double standard.

You'd be surprised

how many of them ARE.

And honestly, many of the ones who are pro-war genuinely believe that it's necessary to protect ourselves, and all too often are unaware of the crimes committed. Their motives, believe it or not, are very often perfectly good - but they've been duped. Some of them just hate Muslims, I'll grant you, but the majority in my experience consider it a necessary evil.

Sorry for the tangent; I just get frustrated when evil motives are assumed of decent people who've been duped. The ones doing the duping, on the other hand...

Well, I have personally talked with people whom I believe are

are the epitome of those which you speak. It was the Duggars and, for the record, I love and respect them in so many ways. However, they will not listen to reason concerning the war machine. It's called being ignorant on purpose, and I don't think anything makes me angrier. They don't want to know the facts because the facts are too painful to face.

I hear you. However, here is

I hear you. However, here is the good news. If you are Catholic then there is no way you can support war. The Pope spoke against the Iraq war and the new Pope even called for a day of fasting for peace in Syria. So these Catholics that support war are going against their own religion.

Second piece of good news. All these people that went to the march are waking up a bit to the fact that there is a media blackout. This is not a good thing for anyone - pro-choice or pro-life. So we can maybe start talking to one another about breaking out the media mafia so that we can ALL benefit.
