Isn’t That Special?
Pictured is President Obama pulling the string at the back of Steven’s neck which triggers his toy voicebox that says “I love abortion in every form.” Roe v. Wade was in itself a horror of a decision, based on social engineering, “pro-choice politics” and judicial activism. In other words, pretty much everything except law, precedent and the Constitution. But it’s the murderous progeny of Roe that have resulted in helpless living beings being slaughtered wholesale in the name of “a woman’s choice.”
Standing alone, Roe is bad science and worse law, but the cases which grew out of it are much worse, and Medal recipient John Paul Stevens played a major role in giving the assembly-line murders constitutional cover. The freedom, indeed the God-given right of life, was not of any concern to Stevens and four of his Supreme Court colleagues.
Obama attempted to humanize this inhuman jurist with little tidbits like “At his vacation home in Florida, he was John from Arlington, better known for his world-class bridge game than his world-changing judicial opinions.” Cute, huh? Good old John. He was just doing his job. No evil intent whatsoever. Just a friendly old guy who puts his imprimatur on death warrants for millions of nearly-born babies.
The award itself contains the words: “ . . . his commitment to the noble vision of our nation’s founders.” I’m not sure which Founder’s ghostly screams I’m hearing. Could be Jefferson. Could be Washington. Could be Madison. But I’m hearing “that’s a goddam lie, we never envisioned the vicious and violent death of babies ready to emerge from the womb.”
Good old Justice John wrote the majority opinion in the 2000 case which said that a woman’s choice includes choosing a doctor who will hasten the birthing cycle so that the live baby can emerge, feet first, ready to have its brain entered by surgical scissors and scalpels in a barbarous procedure known as “dilation and extraction,” aka partial-birth abortion. From the time he was a back bench Illinois legislator, Barack Obama has agreed with that position.
Stevens opined that the anti-partial-birth abortion law at issue in Stenberg v. Carhart was indistinguishable from the “legal” procedure “dilation and evacuation” an equally barbarous form of murdering a baby in the womb at a slightly earlier stage of the healthy pregnancy. Therefore, Stevens said, it would be impossible for a good doctor to know whether he was performing a lawful procedure or a medical murder. God forbid we should put MD assassins at risk, and partial-birth abortion was approved by the high court. The calmness and ordinariness with which the opinion describes the various forms of baby murder that must be allowed is reminiscent of Adolf Eichmann calmly describing the methods he used to kill Jews at the extermination camps.
Stevens cited all the various and despicable forms of baby-murder which were allowable in order to show that partial-birth abortion was just another form of medical treatment. Stevens concluded that the dismemberment of a living human being, partially removed by the doctor from the mother’s womb in order to kill it, is “a question of the liberty protected by the 14th Amendment as recognized in the 1973 case of Roe v. Wade.”
Finally, in 2007, Stevens found himself joining in a baby-murder opinion again, this time the minority opinion. He joined Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg in Gonzales v. Carhart in stating that “In sum, the notion that the Partial-Birth Abortion Act furthers any legitimate government interest is, quite simply, irrational.” Ginsburg also quoted Stevens's concurring majority opinion in the earlier Stenberg case, repeating Stevens’s words that the “state has no interest in protecting a child against a partial-birth abortion." Well, the idea that murdering a living human being during the birth process should be legal is just plain crazy. Living Constitution, millions of murdered babies.
Essentially, Obama placed the ribbon with the Medal of Freedom around Stevens’s neck, celebrating the liberty to slice and dice innocent human lives. If that’s “freedom,” give me tyranny.
