Brace yourself for this one: quote:
Prominent Feminist Admits Abortion is Murder but I Am a Firm SupporterWASHINGTON, September 11, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) - In an article focusing on newly appointed vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin, prominent feminist Camille Paglia admits that, much like Gov. Palin, she also believes abortion involves the murder of an innocent life - but unlike Palin, Paglia says she is a firm supporter of abortion.Paglia's piece, which appears on Salon.com, is the latest indication that utilitarian philosophies that no longer recognize the right to life as being the most foundational human right are gaining ground in some liberal circles. Under these philosophies even murder can be advocated as long as it protects what is deemed to be an even more important right - in Paglia's case the sacrosanct right to abortion.Paglia, the University Professor of Humanities and Media Studies at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, is well-known for her non-conformist approach as a lesbian social critic and as a popular journalist and author. Her latest article, Fresh blood for the vampire, largely addresses the Republican's surge in the polls after choosing Palin as VP-nominee, but also touches on abortion.Let's take the issue of abortion rights, of which I am a firm supporter. As an atheist and libertarian, I believe that government must stay completely out of the sphere of personal choice. Every individual has an absolute right to control his or her body, said Paglia, voicing the commonest argument put forward by feminist supporters of abortion.Unlike her fellow pro-abortion colleagues, however, Paglia continued on to - as she termed it - face the ethical consequences of embracing abortion. I have always frankly admitted that abortion is murder, the extermination of the powerless by the powerful, she said.Paglia then admitted that in order to rationalize and accept abortion, one would have to not only accept, but logically condone other atrocities against life - that is, one would have to accept murder for the sake of protecting a particular, more important right, as she does. The author criticizes those on the social left who parrot the scientifically untenable position that the fetus is just a lump of tissue, saying that those who do so are simply afraid to face the consequences of their pro-abortion position.Liberals for the most part have shrunk from facing the ethical consequences of their embrace of abortion, which results in the annihilation of concrete individuals and not just clumps of insensate tissue, explained Paglia. The gigantic, instantaneous coast-to-coast rage directed at Sarah Palin when she was identified as pro-life was, I submit, a psychological response by loyal liberals who on some level do not want to open themselves to deep questioning about abortion and its human consequences.Source: LifeSiteNews

The lady makes no sense. She admits that abortion is murder but is o.k. with that. She admits that it's the powerful using that power against the powerless, but that's fine if the individual benefits.So, Rebecca...do you know that plasma T.V. that you and your husband just bought?* I want it. I'm going to break into your house and take it because it will benefit me, so I'm going to exercise my right over you. Is that o.k. with you? *[Note--I don't know Rebecca and have no idea if she and her husband even have a T.V, let alone a plasma T.V. I don't know where she lives so I couldn't break into her home even if I wanted to and I don't want to.]I wonder if she's a big fan of Peter Singer (Is that his name?). He's fine with the killing of weak humans, even born ones, but is not o.k. with killing animals. Yet, he takes good care of his ailing mother.

Paglia is a notorious rabid feminist. Her views are repugnant.I worked for a Muslim 15 years ago, he observed American women MURDER their own babiesOnce again, stop scratching your heads about why Islam wants NO part of western style liberalism, feminism or so called Democracy.Hopefully, there are enough believers in the WEST to stem the tide and shore off a complete collapse.
