Llyse Hogue, president of NARAL Pro Choice America, “shouted her abortion” at the Democratic National Convention Wednesday. In a typical fashion she shared the story of her own abortion and argued the pro-choice position. Below, we have highlighted some key points of her speech:
“We (Texas women) approach challenges with clear eyes and full hearts”
It’s ironic that she highlights her Texas roots. Texas, along with most of the south, are traditionally the most pro-life states in the nation. The most recent laws passed in Texas restricting abortion attest to this fact. A sentence earlier, describing Texas women, she says “Texas women are strong”, but what strength can be found in taking the life of the most innocent? It is made clear in her context she is talking about the will, not physical strength, but aborting an innocent baby is weak willed, cowardly and selfish. By her own account, inconvenience was the only excuse she needed to abort her first child. Even by their own logic, that an early stage pregnancy only holds a fetus, she is snuffing out the life of her child before it has even begun.
Sorry Mrs. Hogue, but you don't fit the description of a strong Texas woman. The only thing your heart is full of, is deception.
“All we need to succeed in life is the tools, the trust, and the chance to chart our own path”
Llyse wastes no time appealing to the Liberal mentality. Much can be said about this mentality, even though it’s not relevant at the moment, the wisdom of God’s word speaks clearly about this…
"There is a way that appears to be right, but in the end it leads to death." Proverbs 14:12
Sadly, the death taken by Mrs. Hogue is her own child guilty of being inconvenient.
“I wanted a family but it was the wrong time. I made a decision that was best for me, to have an abortion and get compassionate care at a clinic in my own community.”
I re-iterate what I said above… Mrs. Hogue’s first child was guilty only of inconvenience. Acting in cruelty and oppression, through selfish endeavor, and reducing a human life to nothing more than property, a fetus in HER body, she ended the child’s life… fitting the role of a tyrant. What she received in this act was not compassion (which as a trait, protects life, especially the innocent) but instead the approval of her own evil.
“My story is not unique, about 1 in 3 American women have abortions by the age of 45”
...To the count of 1.2 million abortions a year in the United States. This is the leading cause of death in America. No, Mrs. Hogue, your story is not unique, but it is a terrible injustice. It represents murder, and it also represents carelessness, selfishness, promiscuity, and a cheap regard for the value of human life. What is unique is the leadership position you have taken in your crusade against innocent life. Instead of being a strong willed Texan standing up for the innocent and protecting human life, you have become a weak willed advocate of the selfish abandonment of responsibilities through the murder of unborn babies.
“You see, it’s not as simple as bad girls get abortions and good girls have families. We are the same women, at different times in our lives, each making decisions that are best for us.”
Motherhood is first and foremost a sacrifice to provide for your children, even if it is inconvenient. The very biology of the mother-child relation is that of a highly demanding need from the child for the mother, her milk supply, and her love, warmth, time, and patience in a selfless act of compassion and love for her child. What you advocate is not motherhood, but immaturity through selfishness. You might be a biological mother, but you lack even the qualities of a legal guardian, sibling or distant relative. “Best for (me)” is not a quality that belongs in a family nor as a mother. If you fail to realize this, then certainly you belong back on the elementary school playground, learning to make sacrifices, through sharing and playing with others where most children first learn not to be selfish.
“If we want families to succeed we start by empowering women, give us accurate information, and access to health care”
Selfishness disempowers women by failing to prepare them for motherhood. Open up most parenting and baby books, and you’ll find accurate information about the demands of the child and the sacrifices of the mother. Aborting your child is not healthcare, it is a violation of the Hippocratic Oath.
“Keep politicians out of our business”
The irony here has the consistency of a brick wall.
“... and support us when we are (ready to start a family)”
I have more than covered Mrs. Hogue’s misguided attempt at “support” above.
“That’s what gives our families the best chance to get ahead and stay ahead”
Progressive, Liberal, Socialistic policies have done nothing but attempted destroy the family. This alone deserves a textbook about all the destructive policies implemented by the left. Abortion is the cornerstone of these policies, advocating selfishness (as I have iterated above), promiscuity, little regard for the protection of human life.
“And that is what Hillary Clinton has spent decades fighting for”
I’m sure Bill would agree.
The irony in @ilyseh's #DemsInPhilly #abortion speech had the consistency of a brick wall.—@wscott84
“Donald Trump, he’s different. He said women like me should be punished”
We at New City Times do not support Donald Trump as the candidate as we have written here and here. But Ironically, Mrs. Hogue believes unborn babies who are conceived at inconvenient times should be punished.
“Mike Pence led to charge to defund Planned Parenthood, pushed to let hospitals turn a woman away if she needs an abortion to save her life, and signed a bill with some of the most outrageous abortion restrictions in the country”
While Mike Pence had taken a step in the right direction, a full ban on abortion is what is needed. In response to Mrs. Hogue’s comment about turning away a woman who needs an abortion to save her life, this is built of the false premise that firstly, requires safe and legal abortion, and secondly, the doctor did not perform this unfortunately medical procedure as a last resort. Saving one life or another is an unfortunate situation that those in the medical and protective services face on a daily basis, yet we do not advocate for safe and legal murder.

“He has even said he can’t wait to send Roe vs. Wade into the ash-heap of history”
We cannot wait either. If you would like to be proactive in protecting human life against the selfish life terminating tactics of Mrs. Hogue, click here
“It’s not abortion that bother them”
Actually, it is.
“It’s empowering women to live their own lives”
I have already covered above how Mrs. Rogue’s selfish tactics only disempowers women and mothers.
“And when we have power over our own destiny, we not only strengthen our families, we honor our most cherished traditions of liberty and equality”
Once again, the irony here is amazing.
“And when we have power over our own destiny (unless you're the baby), we not only strengthen our families (what’s left of it), we honor our most cherished traditions of liberty (unless you're the baby) and equality (unless you're the baby).
If these tactics ring a bell to you, it’s because it’s the same arguments they made in support of slavery. A slave is just property (just like her unborn baby), and thus does not have liberty and is not equal to their master (or mother). More about that here.
“We need a president who has the experience, the wisdom, and the grit to stand up against the bullies”
Murdering your unborn child isn’t bullying?
“We need a president that knows that women’s right are human rights”
It’s almost as though Liberals refer to unborn babies as fetuses in an attempt to dehumanize them and deny them the rights afforded to humans.
“We need a president who will continue expanding the frontier of freedom for all Americans”
“Fetuses” not apply.
“We need Hillary Clinton”
Like a Bernie supporter needs Bernie.
Sadly, Llyse Hogue's views are not radical, but typical of the Democratic party. A party that preaches compassion for the poor, protection of the vulnerable, and speaking for those without a voice scraps everyone of these values when an unborn baby is not wanted. Once again in the 21st Century, the Democrats support the master, not the slave, and organizations like NARAL are the Democrat's new KKKs.
