new abortion commentary from Gingi
A is for Abortion! I mean, Apple!
If you think education is expensive, try ignorance.
The National Education Association – the nation's largest professional employee organization - is gearing up for their annual convention that is set to take place in San Diego, California this year. Think a low budget Democratic National Convention, minus the blue donkey balloons and confetti.
The dialogue that frequently permeates these shindigs is usually prefaced with declarations of the intrinsic value of all children, and then quickly moves on to center on the apparent lack of funds for teacher's salaries, school activities and after-school curriculums. And that isn't confusing at all when you consider the NEA officially endorses mass child slaughter, and ranks as the third largest financial contributor to pro-abortion political candidates and organizations in the entire nation.
Did I mention these guys are supposed to like kids? And here I thought critical thinking was introduced in like, the fourth grade. So much for practice what you teach.
Thanks to abortion, 1.3 million children will never attend their first day of school each year. It's hard to believe that those who make a living pushing educational agendas like 'No Child Left Behind' would so willingly advocate leaving behind those who are sloshing around mutilated in a stainless steel bowl at the local abortuary.
Despite the fact that only 49% of NEA members are self-described Democrats, over 95% of the NEA's multi-million dollar contributions go to Democratic causes, including donations to over 40 pro-abortion groups such as Planned Parenthood, NARAL, Pro-Choice America, the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice, National Organization of Women and the Leadership Council of the Pro-Choice Public Education Project.
Here's a thought - and I'm just tossing around ideas here – but maybe we would be better able to fund school essentials if the NEA stopped cutting checks to organizations who consider 'education' to be shuttling 12 year olds to get secret second trimester abortions and teaching kindergarteners how to masturbate.
The NEA has taken abortion advocacy as far as to allow the late late-term abortionist George Tiller to have a speaking role at one of its buildings on March 10, 2008. At the time Tiller was facing 19 criminal charges for illegal late-term abortions and a grand jury investigation into additional illegalities. This was the notorious speech where he was caught on camera stating that he has killed children up to a day before the mother's due date. (One wonders why unanesthetized second and third trimester salt poisoning and brain suction abortions aren't included in NEA's stand against "mutilation and suffering" in its Human Rights Resolution 1-10?)
Not content to simply applaud, fund and endorse abortion, the National Education Association has stated in its pro-abortion resolution that it is working towards the "implementation of community-operated, school-based family planning clinics that will provide intensive counseling by trained personnel."
Gee, as long as we're helping industries of harmful elective indulgences zero in on targeted school-aged customers, why don't we set up tobacco shops next to the school bookstore too?
During the presidential campaign in 2008, the National Education Association didn't even attempt to feign impartiality as they slobbered all over Barack Obama, the champion of abortions on minors, FOCA, partial-birth abortion and parental notification abolition. Oh, by the way, Obama is expected to address the NEA convention once again this year. It's the least he could do after the heavy hand the NEA leant during election season last year.
NEA's president, Reg Weaver said that he chose to back the abortion candidate Obama because, "Barack Obama understands that a child is more than a test score." Yes, judging by his advocacy of fetal stem cell research, a child can also be a test subject! Kind of sheds a whole new light on Michelle Obama's gushing over children being a "precious resource", doesn't it? Hope and change and Soylent Green is people...
The real mystery, however, is how educators can promote those who are overwhelmingly uneducated when it comes to children and prenatal development. I'm fairly certain no one in Obama's camp even knows what a baby actually looks like. I can just envision them looking at an ultrasound. "Hey, look at this. What the hell is that? Is that like, cauliflower or something? It's totally sucking its thumb. I didn't know vegetables did that."
While organizations certainly have every right to endorse whomever they please, the official support of fetal slaughter and those who profit from it is especially distressing to NEA members who do not agree with the political pandering to baby butchers, yet still have to pay dues to the Education Association in order to get or keep a job as a condition of employment.
And it's not just the pro-life crowd distressed. A recent survey revealed that 82% of NEA members believe that their association should take no position whatsoever on the issue of abortion. This means that regardless of political views, an overwhelming majority of teachers expect the NEA to fight for things like better teacher pay and higher standards in school - not to support pro-abortion candidates and justices that argue for killing the next generation of students.
It's really not all that hard. Allow me to break it down:
Teachers AGAINST pro-abortion NEA activism = majority.
Teachers FOR pro-abortion NEA activism = minority.
Should the NEA fund abortion advocates? No. (That's math!)
As long as we're educating the educators, let's move on to another subject and take a look at some NEA history. For instance, you'd think they would be mindful of human rights offences after the sordid history of education and segregation.
Oh that's right. Just fifty years ago, some teachers wouldn't teach ABC's and 123's to black kids alongside white kids. Just as some teachers swear by the Supreme Court decision of Roe v. Wade as the indisputable law of the land, other teachers swore by Plessy v. Ferguson, the landmark Supreme Court decision upholding the constitutionality of racial segregation in public accommodations under the doctrine of "separate but equal".
Then along came Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka and the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment of the United States Constitution. This victory paved the way for integration and the civil rights movement in 1954.
How did teachers respond? Quite a few adopted legal tactics to stall integration and cooked up "Freedom of Choice" plans (Choice... there's that word again!) that were used to circumvent desegregation. In theory, "Freedom of Choice" allowed blacks to attend any school in a district, but black parents were threatened with losing their jobs and homes, and some even had crosses burned on their property if they tried to send their children to white schools.
The governor of Virginia even closed public schools to thousands of students rather than desegregate, while teachers stood by in obstinate approval. In some areas, anti-integration sentiments ran so deep that National Guard troops even had to be called to Little Rock, Arkansas to escort African American students, such as Ruby Bridges, into formerly all white schools because individuals within groups like the NEA refused to treasure, respect and value all children.
In many places it took ten to fifteen years for schools to become integrated. When it's demonstrated that teacher doesn't always know best, you'd think that the NEA would be think twice on controversial human right issues like abortion. I think I was in first grade when my teacher told me that we should learn from our mistakes through history.
Again, it's not all that hard to think through:
Teachers and educational leaders - as pure as their motives may be on topics such as segregation and abortion advocacy – are fallible creatures and are subject to human vices like the rest of us lowly mortals. (That's history!)
The bottom line is that if an individual school teacher wants to indulge in a philosophy that is in direct opposition to the safety of all children and decides to join a mob of unstable fanatics waving around bloody clothes hangers after work, she is free to do so - on her own time and dime. But the NEA should have no hand in such issues. It is not their job to issue mandates on social and moral issues.
Math lesson + history lesson + common sense = the political extremism of the minority should not foisted upon the neutral majority.
Isn't it time the NEA got schooled on this issue? Class is dismissed!

First Major Pro-Life Prayer-&-Picket Event Since Tiller Death will Focus on NEA Teacher Union Convention in San Diego & NEA State HQs Across America on July 2
Abortion is primary cause of economic recession, unemployment: especially for teachers
Contact: Bob Pawson (NJ), Coordinator, Pro-Life Educators And Students, 609-610-3522, BobPawson@ProLifeEducators.com; Gingi Edmonds (CA), Pro-Life Writer and Activist, www.GingiEdmonds.com, 559-772-7911, GingiEdmonds@gmail.com
SAN DIEGO, June 10 /Christian Newswire/ -- Pro-Lifers are invited to come picket the National Education Association leadership's pro-abortion policies, actions, and agenda at the San Diego Convention Center on July 2 between 10:00AM and 2:00PM and at NEA-State-Affiliate-HQs in cities across America from 11:00AM through 1:00PM (local times).
"Apparently, these peaceful, prayer-and-picket demonstrations against the NEA leadership's pro-abortion agenda will be the first major pro-life event since the death of George Tiller," said Bob Pawson of Pro-Life Educators and Students (PLEAS). "By peacefully and prayerfully picketing the NEA's convention and offices across America, pro-life citizens can publically reaffirm that we express our concern, compassion, and desire for true justice through lawful and constitutional means using reason and rational discourse in the American tradition of the public square."
"Media interest in pro-life demonstrations at the NEA convention and NEA-State-affiliate-offices should be high in the wake of Tiller's demise," said Gingi Edmonds of ProLife Opinion. "We're encouraging pro-life leaders, teachers, parents, students, clergy, and everybody to mobilize their pro-life groups, friends, and family members. President Obama may address NEA's 9,000 delegates to thank them for endorsing and getting him elected."
"Abortion is the primary factor causing America's economic recession," said Pawson, an NEA-NJEA teacher in Trenton, NJ. America is suffering the consequences for killing fifty-million people who are supposed to be among us today as teachers, producers, consumers, taxpayers, leaders, inventors, and problem-solvers. It's no surprise that a nation which slaughters nearly twenty percent of its future customers, investors, and entrepreneurs also kills its own economy. Wrong moral choices have negative consequences. Evil acts generate their own punishment."
"The NEA leadership's support for abortion has led to the destruction of fifty-million students and simultaneously eliminated hundreds of thousands of teaching careers and education-related jobs. Surely, some of those dead students were the ones God sent to cure AIDS, end world-hunger, and create clean-energy technologies," said Pawson. "NEA's leadership portrays itself as the premier advocate for children while collecting millions of dollars in dues from teachers for supposedly protecting their jobs. What hypocrisy!"
Edmonds said, "It is vital that individual pro-lifers reading or hearing this report commit themselves to personally attending and promoting these demonstrations. Your presence is needed and appreciated. Please recruit and activate others. Help rebuke the NEA leadership's abortion activism. Don't wait for leaders: be one."
Pro-Lifers spontaneously organizing demonstrations with twenty-plus picketers at NEA-affiliate-offices in other states and cities are asked to e-mail Pawson detailing location(s) and leadership contact info.
Pro-Life picketers should bring traditional pro-life signs as well as other messages like:
NEA: BE ABORTION-NEUTRAL
REPEAL NEA RES I-16
PRO-LIFE NEA MEMBER
PRO-LIFE PARENT & TAXPAYER
25 ABORTIONS=1 LOST CLASS
FORMER FETUS & CURRENT STUDENT
STOP NEA PRO-ABORTION AGENDA
NEA: SAVE FUTURE STUDENTS
SAVING BABIES SAVES TEACHERS' JOBS

July 16, 2009 - Obamaland: Population 280 Million
This has been an exciting week in the pro-life realm. Ruth Bader Ginsberg finally got senile enough to let it slip that she was for population control all along. The President lied to the Pope and backpedaled on his promises to lower the number of abortions. And Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor has been dodging abortion-related questions faster than an illegal immigrant dodging border patrol.
But my personal favorite would have to be the appointing of the new Assistant to the President for Science and Technology – aka United States’ Science Czar. President Abortion has dropped all pretenses of impartiality by selecting the radical eugenics-zealot John P. Holdren, a guy that makes the ultra-liberal bull-dyke Napolitano look like Ann Coulter.
This nut-job exists in some kind of cruel time warp, where every liberal flavor of the week loops on constant repeat in his brain. And I’m not just talking about the recent crazes like outrage toward waterboarding. This dude is still living in the LaLa Land of the seventies where Rachel Carson was taken seriously, overpopulation was considered a dire threat, and people watched The Sonny and Cher Comedy Hour to laugh with it, not at it.
Now, we pro-lifers have learned how to handle the usual liberal-types. You know the ones – the guys sporting ‘Hope’ and ‘Change’ t-shirts that usually content themselves with whining over mostly harmless things, like the fate of the Cheese-weed Moth Lacewing or the meaning of the San Francisco rainbow. But this Holdren guy dwells in the dark side of the freakazoid liberal agenda. The kind that takes make-believe science and uses it to foist apocalyptic predictions that never come to pass upon the public in order to justify genocide. And really folks, I wish I were being overdramatic.
Prior to being Barack Obama’s science-wiz pick, Holdren was the science adviser for Al Gore on An Inconvenient Truth - the film that by one scholar's count contained ten pages of falsehoods, exaggerations, distortions, and ignored evidence. (For those not fluent in liberal-speak, “science” means “whatever legitimizes crack-pot theories”.)
When not busy raping truth in the name of eco-ideology, Holdren has been known to spend his time writing extensively on his morbid fixation with seventies overpopulation mythology. His obsession with population control has only recently been rivaled by the looming threat of global warming... caused, no doubt, by overpopulation.
Regardless, this guy has exhausted pages gleefully ruminating on the many ways he could help kill off undesirables and lower the worlds inhabitants to make room for those worthy to live... like abortion clinic staff, PETA members and low rating liberal talk-radio hosts. And what I mean by ‘lower’, is ‘virtually annihilate’.
You see, the world's population is currently at 6.7 billion. Obama’s little science genius wants to bring the population down to 280 million. What this means is that 6,420,000,000 people need to die for Holdren to live in his perfectly imposed fantasy world where children with blonde hair and blue eyes can frolic on the virgin countryside alongside wild stallions and unicorns.
Holdren’s cultish ideas on how we should go about offing the majority of humanity are best understood by taking a look at ‘Ecoscience’, a book he co-authored and proudly lists as one of his claims to fame in his current resume.
Obama’s science advisor thinks he is a veritable Dr. Horrible and has plans that involve sterilizing the population at large by intentionally injecting infertility drugs into the nation’s drinking water and food... but only if the drug doesn’t harm animals or plant-life in the process.
Holdren feels that both single and teen mothers should have their babies seized against their will and given away to others. He also feels that women should be forced upon government discretion to abort their pregnancies - whether they want to or not.
He has written at length that “undesirables” and people who “contribute to social deterioration” should be required by law to exercise reproductive responsibility - in other words, be compelled to have abortions or be sterilized. (This one is especially important to note when you understand that he includes among “undesirables” those who are “global warming deniers". He has argued in the past that those who deny global warming should be tried for crimes against humanity.)
Forced abortions. Mass sterilization. This guy has even been caught in passionate rants yammering over a “Planetary Regime” that he hopes to raise, which will have the power of life and death over American citizens. No joke people. These are the proudly published tyrannical fantasies of a madman. A madman who is now the person in control of science policy in the United States thanks to the even-handed, clear-headed, above my pay grade Barack Obama.
We already knew that Obama has been hell-bent upon including abortion coverage in his new health care bill from day one. He has been taking aggressive steps towards forcing tax-payers to pay for abortions and requiring health insurance companies to contract with organizations like Planned Parenthood - the nation's largest abortion business.
Why did Barack Obama choose John P. Holdren on the eve of launching his ‘Change’ in health care? Because the agenda behind the drive is one and the same. And in the history of the United States, no liberal conspiracy theory has been complete without some crack-pot spewing fake science around to legitimize social evil.
America... meet John P. Holdren.
The man who - in all of his years as a tree-hugging wacko - has never once stopped to consider that the Earth he so loves is roughly 197 trillion square miles. This means that every person in the world could easily fit within the territories of Texas, New Mexico and Arizona, with more than 2,100 square feet of living space per person. Meanwhile the rest of the world would still have room for farming, national parks, preserving the world’s endangered species and frolicking with unicorns.
If Obama and his lapdogs insist that people must die so that the population of Obamaland is a little less crowded, I say: Let them go first.
