Gloria Steinem Quote About Guns and Abortion Isn’t Really by Gloria Steinem

You’ve probably seen the viral quote by feminist Gloria Steinem making its rounds on social media that says men who buy guns ought to be treated the same way that women are when they seek out an abortion.

The full quote also adds this paragraph at the end: “After all, it makes more sense to do this for young men seeking guns than for young women seeking an abortion. No young woman needing reproductive freedom has ever murdered a roomful of strangers.”

Nevermind that this is one of the most absurd statements ever made, assuming that every man who walks into a store to buy a gun is planning to commit murder with it. Not to mention, also incredibly sexist because women purchase firearms too, you know.

And whether liberals want to admit it or not, a young woman seeking an abortion is, in fact, about to murder a human life, making her much more dangerous to mankind at that moment than a man (or woman) who walks into a store to buy a firearm for personal protection.

But back to that pesky quote.

Gloria Steinem may be getting all the credit, but in reality she never spoke those words. In fact, if you do some digging online, you’ll find that no one is sure exactly who did. The Huffington Post attributes the quote a Facebook user named Brian Murtagh but if he is indeed the author, his original post has long since been deleted.

It’s also possible it came from an article by William Hamby entitled “What if Gun Laws were like Abortion Laws?” but that was published on the now defunct Examiner.com so no one can really fact check it for accuracy.

So how did the quote get attributed to the feminist icon? Probably because she posted it on her Facebook page a few years ago in a list of “Top Ten Things I Want For Christmas.”

There you have it, folks – liberals pulling quotes out of the air that can’t be traced back to any particular person to drive a faulty narrative home.

OK Cupid Teams Up With Planned Parenthood

Are you a conservative looking for someone to date? Are you pro-life? Might want to cross using OK Cupid off your list of potential online dating sites where you can find a suitable girlfriend or boyfriend.

The dating site is now partnering with Planned Parenthood and introducing a special #IStandWithPP profile badge users can add to their profile picture. OK Cupid says it feels strongly about connecting members to causes they care about, and that 80% of members have responded “no” to the question “Should the government defund Planned Parenthood?”

“OkCupid’s partnership with Planned Parenthood is really exciting because it enables us to help people connect on the issues that matter to them. In this current climate, this matters more than ever when it comes to finding ‘your person,’” said Melissa Hobley, CMO of OkCupid. “We know that Planned Parenthood is driving conversations, support and education that millions care about. When we looked at the data, we saw that our community on OkCupid was talking about Planned Parenthood, so we decided to make it easy to find the folks who cared about the same thing.”

Strange that a dating site thinks it’s sexy to share in a cause that promotes the murder of innocent children. Also strange for a dating site to be asking users questions about whether or not the government should defund Planned Parenthood. Leave that up to the people to discuss once you connect them.

I bet they won’t enable a filter for people who DO think the abortion giant’s funds should be completely cut off.

Hanson’s New Song is Unequivocally Pro-Life

Twenty years ago, the Hanson brothers were cresting to number one on the pop charts with their infectious debut single, MMMBop.  This past week, the trio released a brand new single, I Was Born,  a folksy, toe taping melody, which touts a very strong pro-life message.

If you’ve been following the Oklahoma born and raised brothers for the past twenty years, the message in their new song shouldn’t surprise you – Isaac, Taylor and Zac, often pen songs with subtle spiritual messages. They come from a conservative evangelical background with a close-knit family and while they never talk about religion or politics with their fans, it’s easy to see their spiritual upbringing shining through in their music and charity work.

I Was Born was released to mark twenty years in the music industry and is the lead single off a new Greatest Hits compilation, releasing later this fall. While MMMBop was about holding on to the people who really care because “in the end they’ll be the only ones there,”  I Was Born, is an anthem celebrating life.

I was born to do something
No one’s ever done, no one’s ever done before
I was born to go somewhere
No one’s ever gone, no one’s ever gone before, oh
I was born to do
I was born to go
I was born to be someone
No one’s ever been, no one’s ever been before

The lyrics reflect that all humans are born with a God-given purpose in life – we have a destiny to fulfill and goals to achieve. Life is extraordinary and people were created to change the world with our hearts and minds.

Don’t need a map, I can’t be directed
I’ve got a madness, don’t need the method
My heart is a weapon and my mind’s electric
I’ll shock the world when you least expect it
Everybody’s betting on the big guy
But don’t underestimate the sting of the butterfly, oh

The music video for I Was Born features eleven of the twelve brother’s children – fulfilling their respective destinies and lending an even stronger pro-life image to the song.

In a music industry that cares more about selling records instead of creating songs with lasting impact,  I Was Born is refreshing and has an important message to send: You are meant for something great – don’t ever underestimate your purpose in life.

Women Dressed as Handmaids Protest Anti-Abortion Laws at Texas Capital

Wendy Davis is at it again. Today in Austin, Texas a group of women dressed as handmaids from the popular Handmaid’s Tale book/TV show staged a protest against anti-abortion bills. The protest was organized by Davis’ group, Deeds Not Words and NARAL of Texas.

During the protest, which was live streamed on Facebook (and can be viewed below), the women are shown holding signs with political protest statements about money being given to “fake health care clinics”, the 24 hr. waiting period for abortions and forced sonograms. The biggest and boldest sign declared “NO MORE ABORTION RESTRICTIONS. NONE!”

https://www.facebook.com/plugins/video.php?href=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2Fprochoicetexas%2Fvideos%2F10155373741604407%2F&show_text=0&width=560

The three young ladies in the middle each read stories of how Planned Parenthood saved lives. One was in high school with two children already and couldn’t “bear to give birth again. I didn’t want to be pregnant. I didn’t want to have another baby.”

Another was raped on a date in high school and when she discovered she was pregnant, her only thought “was to kill myself because I didn’t have any other option. Thankfully, I had a strong, supportive mother who took me to get an abortion. I made a decision to save a life – mine.”

I. Me. Mine.

Abortion is all about the woman and what SHE wants, with no regards to the other human life growing inside her. To the pro-choice movement, innocent babies don’t matter because they aren’t born and therefore aren’t considered people even though science will tell you they share the same DNA as you and I.

Shame on these women and shame on America for continuing to let it happen.
