This writer is a native St. Louisan. I thought the sun rose and set only because of this once great city. I would have fought you over this, I was born there and thought I would die there. In a great sense, I did. I died there in 1978.
“Two St. Louis aldermen, in partnership with NARAL Pro-Choice Missouri, have launched an effort to make the city a sanctuary for reproductive rights.” Read the rest here. Don’t they mean DEproductive?
In ’78, abortion was only a few years old, it seemed like there was a death pit on every corner. And if that weren’t enough, the ‘eastside’ – Illinois – would accommodate killing bigger babies in a place called ‘Hope’ Clinic for Women. It was filthy and the local legend was beyond anything imaginable.
In fact, before there was Roe, John Ashcroft did his best to keep Missouri abortion free. He knew abortion murdered innocent unborn children, and he did not want his state – MY STATE – to become an abortion destination. With a demon named Judy Widdicombe trying to make abortion in St. Louis like a 7-Eleven, Ashcroft fought that thing and many other demons to keep my state a sanctuary for our precious unborn.
St. Louis has always been a union town, a place where Democrats thrive. And after I left there over 27 years ago, STL has gotten to a place that is nearly unrecognizable. If it weren’t for the Arch, I wouldn’t recognize it beyond the mosques, Planned Parenthoods, and blight. THAT’S what you get with Democrat so-called ‘leadership’.
The aldermen trying to make STL a so-called ‘sanctuary reproductive city’ is a blatant move to bring back Big Abortion to the city and “plans to introduce legislation that would establish a buffer zone around the entrance to the Planned Parenthood clinic on Forest Park Parkway.” Actually, this is proof that anti-abortion activism is WORKING. Diligent advocates have been working very hard to show the humanity of the unborn to women that believe the lie of abortion. Central West End Planned Parenthood Death Pit has had it’s troubles with the law and botched abortions putting over 60 patients in the hospital. Read the rest here. Not so much of a sanctuary, I’d say.
While prolifers may think this ‘sanctuary reproductive city’ thing may not hold water, just know that anti-abortion activists are very aware that some states have a ‘city rule’ in their state constitution which may allows cities within that state to make laws that can circumvent state and federal law, including buffer zones. This happened last year in Columbus, Ohio. Activists who live within the city limits of large Democrat-ran cities must go to city council meetings and make sure you KNOW what they are doing to your city. It is YOUR CITY.
My home town has lost it’s way, ran by bigots who hate unborn children and anything decent. Learn from STL’s mistakes. This once great city is now just another death pit to conservatism, Christians, and the unborn.
EXPOSING THE ABORTION AGENDA FROM THE PULPIT, ON THE SIDEWALK, THE MEDIA & IN THE STATEHOUSE: “Once I realized that my abortion was a tragedy and not an accomplishment, I was able to discern correctly that abortion is, indeed, MURDER.” ~ Rev. Katherine, post-abortive minister, counselor, AMERICAN.
