#1. I do not believe that just because you're opposed to abortion, that that makes you pro-life. In fact, I think in many cases, your morality is deeply lacking if all you want is a child born but not a child fed, not a child educated, not a child housed. And why would I think that you don't? Because you don't want any tax money to go there. That's not pro-life. That's pro-birth. We need a much broader conversation on what the morality of pro-life is. - Author: Joan D. Chittister
Anti Abortion quotes by Joan D. Chittister
#2. Cruising along once again in this cesspool known as life, I realize that it is too late to make a detour. I will have to pass the anti-abortion pickets (50) outside of Planned Parenthood. Nothing gets on my nerves more than these pro-lifers. Not even astrology enthusiasts (51), Herman Hesse (52) or computer games (53). Look at these fools parading up and down! "Mind your own business," I yell. When one of these busybodies (a man, yet) approaches my car with literature, I lose control and scream, "I wish I was a girl so I could get an abortion!" Trembling with rage, I realize I'd better calm down before I get beat up, but can't resist one last taunt - "I hate the pope" (54), I yell to no one in particular. - Author: John Waters
Anti Abortion quotes by John Waters
#3. Typically, we see an upsurge in anti-abortion violence ... when the anti-abortion movement kind of thinks it was on the verge of victory, and then finds itself somehow thwarted ... When there's frustration among the anti-abortion forces, violence often results. - Author: Michelle Goldberg
Anti Abortion quotes by Michelle Goldberg
#4. I cannot understand anti-abortion arguments that centre on the sanctity of life. As a species we've fairly comprehensively demonstrated that we don't believe in the sanctity of life. The shrugging acceptance of war, famine, epidemic, pain and life-long poverty shows us that, whatever we tell ourselves, we've made only the most feeble of efforts to really treat human life as sacred. - Author: Caitlin Moran
Anti Abortion quotes by Caitlin Moran
#5. I could feel the baby being torn from my insides. It was really painful ... Three-quarters of the way through the operation I sat up ... In the cylinder I saw the bits and pieces of my little child floating in a pool of blood. I screamed and jumped up off the table ... I just couldn't stop throwing up ... - Author: Randy Alcorn
Anti Abortion quotes by Randy Alcorn
#6. We are all assumed, these days, to reside at one extreme of the opinion spectrum, or another. We are pro-abortion or anti-abortion. We are free traders or protectionist. We are pro-private sector or pro-big government. We are feminists or chauvinists. But in the real world, few of us holds these extreme views. There is instead a spectrum of opinion. - Author: Michael Crichton
Anti Abortion quotes by Michael Crichton
#7. Boring. Total downer. Again - you have to remember the audience. This isn't some anti-abortion group. You've got to dig deeper. Remember who you're talking to." "Governor, I can guarantee you these people are anti-abortion." "You don't know that." I did know that, and so did he. "They're celebrating traditional motherhood, they're independent Baptists, and they're from Florence." Now it would become an argument about something else. He'd get impatient and say, "Never mind, I'll think of something," and walk into the event. It didn't matter what he said. At the Mother of the Year ceremony, middle-aged women cackled and cooed at anything the governor - Author: Barton Swaim
Anti Abortion quotes by Barton Swaim
#8. The preservation of life seems to be rather a slogan than a genuine goal of the anti-abortion forces; what they want is control. Control over behavior: power over women. Women in the anti-choice movement want to share in male power over women, and do so by denying their own womanhood, their own rights and responsibilities. - Author: Ursula K. Le Guin
Anti Abortion quotes by Ursula K. Le Guin
#9. Ronald Reagan was an anti-government, union-busting, race baiting, anti-abortion, anti-gay, anti-intellectual, who cut rich people's taxes in half, had a incurable case of the military-industrial complex, and said Medicare was socialism that would destroy our freedom. [ ... ] Both sides really should stop pretending he was something other than the man most responsible for our decline. - Author: Bill Maher
Anti Abortion quotes by Bill Maher
#10. Each party has a platform
a pre-fixed menu of beliefs making up its worldview. The candidate can choose one of the two platforms, but remember: no substitutions.
For example, do you support healthcare? Then you must also want a ban on assault weapons. Pro limited government? Congratulations, you are also anti-abortion.
Luckily, all human opinion falls neatly into one of the two clearly defined camps. Thus, the two-party system elegantly represents the bi-chromatic rainbow that is American political thought. - Author: Jon Stewart
Anti Abortion quotes by Jon Stewart
#11. If the anti-abortion movement took a tenth of the energy they put into noisy theatrics and devoted it to improving the lives of children who have been born into lives of poverty, violence, and neglect, they could make a world shine. - Author: Michael Jay Tucker
Anti Abortion quotes by Michael Jay Tucker
#12. Astonishingly, the share of students who don't get education in contraceptives is going up, not down. The Trump administration even tried to cut off funding for a teen pregnancy prevention program (lawsuits forced it to continue that funding). What's confounding is that these same officials are often anti-abortion, yet they don't seem to understand that preventing unplanned pregnancies will reduce abortions. They believe that condoms will promote promiscuity, when condoms no more cause sex than umbrellas cause rain. These same officials then thunder about the irresponsibility of girls who get pregnant, oblivious to their own irresponsibility. - Author: Nicholas D. Kristof
Anti Abortion quotes by Nicholas D. Kristof
#13. I believe most Americans are pro-choice and anti-abortion. - Author: Newt Gingrich
Anti Abortion quotes by Newt Gingrich
#14. All anti-abortion protesters should be presented, on the spot, with an application to sign up as foster parents. They should also be given the names of children in their area in need of adoptive parents. And if they won't sign or volunteer, they should shut up. - Author: Kurt Eichenwald
Anti Abortion quotes by Kurt Eichenwald
#15. Advancing the notion that there can be many "feminisms" has served the conservative and liberal political interests of women seeking status and privileged class power who were among the first group to use the term "power feminists." They also were the group that began to suggest that one could be feminist and anti-abortion. This another misguided notion. Granting women the civil right to have control over our bodies is a basic feminist principle. Whether an individual female should have an abortion is purely a matter of choice. It is not anti-feminist for us to choose not to have abortions. But it is a feminist principle that women should have the right to choose. - Author: Bell Hooks
Anti Abortion quotes by Bell Hooks
#16. The religious right is one of the most politically militant voting blocs in the country and the agenda is clear (a gun in every uterus). Time we stopped subsidizing the anti-abortion movement in the form of tax-exemptions. - Author: Quentin R. Bufogle
Anti Abortion quotes by Quentin R. Bufogle
#17. Paul Ryan, who teamed up with Akin in the House to sponsor harsh anti-abortion bills, may look young and hip and new generation, with his iPod full of heavy metal jams and his cute kids. But he's just a fresh face on a Taliban creed - the evermore antediluvian, anti-women, anti-immigrant, anti-gay conservative core. Amiable in khakis and polo shirts, Ryan is the perfect modern leader to rally medieval Republicans who believe that Adam and Eve cavorted with dinosaurs. - Author: Maureen Dowd
Anti Abortion quotes by Maureen Dowd
#18. No unborn baby has ever had the right to choose or deny its own destruction. - Author: R.C. Sproul
Anti Abortion quotes by R.C. Sproul
#19. America needs no words from me to see how your decision in Roe v. Wade has deformed a great nation. The so-called right to abortion has pitted mothers against their children and women against men. - Author: Mother Teresa
Anti Abortion quotes by Mother Teresa
#20. Anti-abortion activists hope the 20-week abortion ban will be their opening to challenge and ultimately overturn Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court's landmark abortion rights decision. - Author: Anonymous
Anti Abortion quotes by Anonymous
#21. Now let me get this straight. Bush is anti-abortion, but pro-death penalty. I guess it's all in the timing, huh? - Author: Dennis Miller
Anti Abortion quotes by Dennis Miller
#22. Don't kid yourself. Keep the baby - I have no other advice for you. Children are the best thing in the world. - Author: Elvira Baryakina
Anti Abortion quotes by Elvira Baryakina
#23. Today, we will hear from federal law enforcement agencies, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, who will discuss the problem of ELF and ALF and law enforcement's reaction to their dangerous and destructive tactics. It is these tactics, particularly the widespread use of arson, which makes ELF and ALF the #1 domestic terror concern over the likes of white supremacists, militias, and anti-abortion groups. - Author: James Inhofe
Anti Abortion quotes by James Inhofe
#24. Since 2010, when the GOP took control of many State legislatures, 205 anti-abortion laws have been enacted. This is more laws of this ilk than were passed in the prior decade.16 Since 2010 more than 50 abortion providers in 27 States have ended service, though not all were due to legislation. - Author: David A. Grimes, M.D.
Anti Abortion quotes by David A. Grimes, M.D.
#25. A staff member tells me that one of the female picketers has come in when the men were not around, had an abortion, and gone back to picket the next day. This sounds surrealistic to me - but not to the staff member. She explains that women in such anti-abortion groups are more likely to be deprived of birth control and so to need an abortion. They then feel guilty - and picket even more. This restriction on birth control may also explain why studies have long shown that Catholic women in general are more likely to have an abortion than are their Protestant counterparts. - Author: Gloria Steinem
Anti Abortion quotes by Gloria Steinem
#26. Having and raising children is doing something with your life! ... And I have to say that having your kids is one of the greatest things you can do. - Author: Patricia Heaton
Anti Abortion quotes by Patricia Heaton
#27. If the Fed had a war on abortion like its war on poverty or war on drugs, within five years men would be having abortions! - Author: Harry Browne
Anti Abortion quotes by Harry Browne
#28. Anti-clericalism and non-belief, have their bigots just as orthodoxy does. - Author: Julien Green
Anti Abortion quotes by Julien Green
#29. Another danger is that - as is already happening to some extent - authors and editors run scared and go to absurd lengths to avoid giving offence. (An American editor rejected Polar, a picture book about a toy polar bear which is published in England by Andre Deutsch, on the ground that the text, written by Elaine Moss, states explicitly that the bear is white). A demand to avoid stereotypes can easily become in effect a demand for a different stereotype: for instance that girls should always be shown as strong, brave and resourceful, and that mothers should always have jobs and never, never wear an apron. And books written to an approved formula, or with deliberate didactic aim, do not often have the breath of life. Some members of women's groups in North America have published their own anti-sexist books, featuring such characters as fire-fighting girls or boys who learn to crochet. Good luck to them; but those I have seen are far below professional standard.

("Are Children's Books Racist and Sexist?" from Only Connect, 2nd ed., 1980) - Author: John Rowe Townsend
Anti Abortion quotes by John Rowe Townsend
#30. Finally, and even more seriously, I fear a return to the international climate that prevailed in the 1920s and 30s, when the United States withdrew from the global stage and countries everywhere pursued what they perceived to be their own interests without regard to larger and more enduring goals. When arguing that every age has its own Fascism, the Italian writer and Holocaust survivor Primo Levi added that the critical point can be reached "not just through the terror of police intimidation, but by denying and distorting information, by undermining systems of justice, by paralysing the education system, and by spreading in a myriad subtle ways nostalgia for a world where order reigned." If he is right (and I think he is), we have reason to be concerned by the gathering array of political and social currents buffeting us today - currents propelled by the dark underside of the technological revolution, the corroding effects of power, the American president's disrespect for truth and the widening acceptance of dehumanising insults, Islamophobia and anti-Semitism as being within the bounds of normal public debate. We are not there yet, but these feel like signposts on the road back to an era when Fascism found nourishment and individual tragedies were multiplied millions-fold. - Author: Madeleine K. Albright
Anti Abortion quotes by Madeleine K. Albright
#31. Obesity is the result of a loss of self-control. Indeed, loss of self-control might be said to be the defining social (or anti-social) characteristic of our age: public drunkenness, excessive gambling, promiscuity and common-or-garden rudeness are all examples of our collective loss of self-control. - Author: Theodore Dalrymple
Anti Abortion quotes by Theodore Dalrymple
#32. You know in the U.S. everyone has a gun in the room. That's not the reason why you go and invade the home with anti-terrorist forces. - Author: Kim Dotcom
Anti Abortion quotes by Kim Dotcom
#33. I have blogged previously about the dangerous and deadly effects of science denialism, from the innocent babies unnecessarily exposed to deadly diseases by other kids whose parents are anti-vaxxers, to the frequent examples of how acceptance of evolution helps us stop diseases and pests (and in the case of Baby Fae, rejection of evolution was fatal), to the long-term effects of climate denial to the future of the planet we all depend upon. But one of the strangest forms of denialism is the weird coalition of people who refuse to accept the medical fact that the HIV virus causes AIDS. What the heck? Didn't we resolve this issue in the 1980s when the AIDS condition first became epidemic and the HIV virus was discovered and linked to AIDS? Yes, we did - but for people who want to deny scientific reality, it doesn't matter how many studies have been done, or how strong the scientific consensus is. There are a significant number of people out there (especially among countries and communities with high rates of AIDS infections) that refuse to accept medical reality. I described all of these at greater length in my new book Reality Check: How Science Deniers Threaten our Future. - Author: Donald R. Prothero
Anti Abortion quotes by Donald R. Prothero
#34. I am neither pro- nor anti-gun. I am gun-conscious. - Author: Henry Rollins
Anti Abortion quotes by Henry Rollins
#35. Indonesia is hardly immune to catastrophic breakdowns, as the anti-Communist pogrom showed. But, like India, it has been relatively fortunate in evolving a mode of politics that can include many discontinuities - of class, region, ethnicity, and religion. - Author: Pankaj Mishra
Anti Abortion quotes by Pankaj Mishra
#36. We all know as we travel around this country or around the world that there are huge problems, and also people doing amazing things on the ground - but those people rarely get reported. Our media are so into conflict that they sometimes say to me, "Bring an 'anti' with you." - Author: Gloria Steinem
Anti Abortion quotes by Gloria Steinem
#37. The anti-precog has to be present when the precog is in the process of deciding, not after. The anti-precog makes all futures seem equally real to the precog; he aborts his talent to choose at all. A precog is instantly aware when an anti-precog is nearby because his entire relation to the future is altered. In the case of telepaths a similar impairment - " "She goes back in time," G. G. Ashwood said. Joe stared at him. "Back in time," G.G. repeated, savoring this; his eyes shot shafts of significance to every part of Joe Chip's kitchen. "The precog affected by her still sees one predominant future; like you said, the one luminous possibility. And he chooses it, and he's right. But why is it right? Why is it luminous? Because this girl - " He shrugged in her direction. "Pat controls the future; that one luminous possibility is luminous because she's gone into the past and changed it. By changing it she changes the present, which includes the precog; he's affected without knowing it and his talent seems to work, whereas it really doesn't. So that's one advantage of her anti-talent over other anti-precog talents. The other - and greater - is that she can cancel out the precog's decision after he's made it. - Author: Philip K. Dick
Anti Abortion quotes by Philip K. Dick
#38. The fact that abortion is still a taboo subject means that opponents of abortion get to define it however suits them best. - Author: Lindy West
Anti Abortion quotes by Lindy West
#39. A government that kills its own citizens is like a parent that kills their own kids aka filicide or like a mother that kills her unborn by abortion . - Author: Youns Hussein
Anti Abortion quotes by Youns Hussein
#40. This idea that Canada's racial injustices are not as bad as they could be, this notion of Slavery Lite, of Racism Lite, of what my friend calls the "toy version of racism" is a very Canadian way of saying: remember what we could do to you if we wanted to. Passive-aggressive racism is central to Canada's national mythology and identity. - Author: Desmond Cole
Anti Abortion quotes by Desmond Cole
#41. I am very much opposed to abortion personally. But I don't think it is the government's rule. - Author: Arlen Specter
Anti Abortion quotes by Arlen Specter
#42. Taxes are like abortion, and not just because both are grotesque procedures supported by Democrats. You're for them or against them. Taxes go up or down; government raises taxes or lowers them. But Democrats will not let the words 'abortion' or 'tax hikes' pass their lips. - Author: Ann Coulter
Anti Abortion quotes by Ann Coulter
#43. We're going home. Forget this country, the gold is too expensive. - Author: Ana-Maurine Lara
Anti Abortion quotes by Ana-Maurine Lara
#44. Many American boys that fought in WWII had been sterilized under eugenic laws passed by the the United States Supreme Court under the 1927 case of Buck v. Bell. Over 80,000 Americans would be forcibly sterilized under that legal precedent. Coincidentally, Buck v Bell is also the legal precedent cited in Roe v. Wade, the famous abortion rights case. - Author: A.E. Samaan
Anti Abortion quotes by A.E. Samaan
#45. In the East all the religions preach egolessness. So in the East everybody is against the ego from the very beginning. Because of this anti attitude, ego never becomes strong, never comes to a point of integration from where it can be thrown. It is never ripe. So in the East it is very difficult to dissolve the ego, almost impossible. - Author: Rajneesh
Anti Abortion quotes by Rajneesh
#46. The anti-slavery party contends that slavery is wrong in itself, and the Government is a consolidated national democracy. We of the South contend that slavery is right, and that this is a confederate Republic of sovereign States. - Author: Laurence M. Keitt
Anti Abortion quotes by Laurence M. Keitt
#47. Individual members of certain churches in black communities should protest when worship services become a platform for teaching anti-gay sentiments. Often individuals sit and listen to preachers raging against gay people and think the views expressed are amusing and outmoded, and dismiss them without challenge. But if homophobia is to be eradicated in black communities, such attitudes must be challenged. - Author: Bell Hooks
Anti Abortion quotes by Bell Hooks
#48. Quite frankly, I would prefer to have a non-Christian like Mitt Romney who at least pretends to embrace biblical principles over a professing Christian like Barack Obama who embraces very unbiblical positions on abortion. - Author: Robert Jeffress
Anti Abortion quotes by Robert Jeffress
#49. Believe it or not, many people are so fearful of Jewish people – whether they be Jews in Israel, the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia or wherever – they are convinced this tiny minority of 13 million people is secretly ruling the world's 7.5 billion people AND can effortlessly revise any episode of history AND can fake such well-documented and scientifically-proven historical events as the Holocaust. - Author: James Morcan
Anti Abortion quotes by James Morcan
#50. Blasphemy is just the fanatic's name for criticism. Charb writes wisely:

'A believer can blaspheme only to the extent that the idea of blasphemy holds any meaning to him. A non-believer, no matter how hard he tries, 'cannot' blaspheme. God is sacred only to those who believe in him. If you wish to insult or offend God, you have to be sure that he exists. The strategy used by minority group activists masquerading as anti-racists is to pass off blasphemy as Islamophobia and Islamophobia as racism.'

The crucial distinction we must defend is between acts of imagination and acts of violence....Faith is not the enemy. Fanaticism is the enemy. It always is. But only a fool would deny that faith has been the seedbed of fanaticism in mankind's long and sorry struggle for the light. As much as at times we need to seek "solidarity" among unlike groups, we also need to "desolidarize," to "unsolidarize" - to put the people we know before the abstract categories we imagine. Come to think of it, making people, with all their flaws, fully visible while leaving generalized types alone is exactly what the caricaturist has always done for us. It's his special form of bravery. - Author: Charb
Anti Abortion quotes by Charb
#51. Of all the bigotries that savage the human temper there is none so stupid as the anti-Semitic. - Author: David Lloyd George
Anti Abortion quotes by David Lloyd George
#52. We need to say that women have sex, have abortions, are at peace with the decision and move on with their lives. We need to say that is their right, and, moreover, it's good for everyone that they have this right: The whole society benefits when motherhood is voluntary. When we gloss over these truths we unintentionally promote the very stigma we're trying to combat. - Author: Katha Pollitt
Anti Abortion quotes by Katha Pollitt
#53. What happens to the souls of all the babies whom are never born? Are they lost in some parallel universe? Do they go to heaven? Are they on the other side waiting to get their vengeance? - Author: J. Matthew Nespoli
Anti Abortion quotes by J. Matthew Nespoli
#54. I think anti-Semitism is the meal ticket of the organizations that fight it. - Author: Arthur Hertzberg
Anti Abortion quotes by Arthur Hertzberg
#55. Yes, babies in the womb are human beings, but so what? - Author: MaryElizabeth Williams
Anti Abortion quotes by MaryElizabeth Williams
#56. Traditionally in Christian circles, Judas in fact has been associated with Jews. Of being traitors, avaricious, who in fact, betray Jesus, who are Christ-killers. And this portrayal of Judas of course also leads then to horrendous acts of anti-Semitism through the centuries. - Author: Bart D. Ehrman
Anti Abortion quotes by Bart D. Ehrman
#57. Rhodes Must Fall was a small-scale example of what racial injustice looks like in Britain. It looks normal. It is pedestrian. It is unquestioned. It's just a part of the landscape, you might walk past it every day. For people who oppose anti-racism on the grounds of freedom of speech, opposition to gross racial disparities is about 'offence', rather than the heavily unequal material conditions that people affected by it carry as burden. Being in a position where their lives are so comfortable that they don't really have anything material to oppose, faux 'free speech' defenders spend all their spare time railing against 'offence culture'. When they make it about offence rather than their own complicity in a drastically unjust system, they successfully transfer the responsibility of fixing the system from the benefactors of it to those who are likely to lose out because of it. Tackling racism moves from conversations about justice to conversations about sensitivity. Those who are repeatedly struck by racism's tendency to hinder their life chances are told to toughen up and grow a thicker skin. - Author: Reni Eddo-Lodge
Anti Abortion quotes by Reni Eddo-Lodge
#58. Given the credible estimate that we've spent $1 trillion on anti-terrorism security - Author: Bruce Schneier
Anti Abortion quotes by Bruce Schneier
#59. If Jesus had been killed twenty years ago, Catholic school children would be wearing little electric chairs around their necks instead of crosses. - Author: Lenny Bruce
Anti Abortion quotes by Lenny Bruce
#60. Women do not seek abortion because they are ignorant that the fetus is a potential child - they seek abortion precisely because they know it. - Author: Ann Furedi
Anti Abortion quotes by Ann Furedi
#61. Further, any way of life based on the importation of resources is also functionally based on violence, because if your way of life requires the importation of resources, trade will never be sufficiently reliable: if people in the next watershed over won't trade you for some necessary resource, you will take it, because you need it. So, to bring this to the present, we could all become enlightened, and the US military would still have to be huge: how else will they get access to the oil they need to run the economy, oil that just happens to lie under someone else's land? The point is that no matter what we think of the irredeemability of this culture's mass psychology or system of rewards, this culture–civilization–is also irredeemable on a purely functional level. - Author: Aric McBay
