Chelsea Clinton On Tour: "Abortion Is Boon To Economy"

Chelsea is one of several "personalities" heading the "Rise Up For Roe" tour sponsored by Demand Justice, Planned Parenthood, NARAL and others aimed at defeating the Supreme Court Justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

It's also, apparently, aimed at misleading women and the American public.

Chelsea claims that abortion is good for the economy--"Roe v. Wade added more than $3 trillion to the economy," she says.

She is really saying that.

Be informed.

The fight to save Roe v. Wade is hitting the road. In panic.

The primary message is that all women must be mad so nominee Kavanaugh can be defeated.

It began in Manhattan earlier this week with this opening: "I'm Symone Sanders, I'm a CNN political commentator and I'm ***** off--applause--"I'm ready to stop Kavanaugh."

The tour---"Rise Up For Roe" is underwritten by Demand Justice, Planned Parenthood, NARAL, Pro-Choice America and probably a few other pro-abortion organizations.

When Kavanaugh is confirmed, they have a lot to lose. Their life and identity is tied to Roe v. Wade remaining the law of the land. And, of course, there's the other matter---hundreds of millions of dollars that abortion generates every year.

By most all legal accounts, Roe v. Wade was flawed to the core. The Constitution doesn't guarantee a woman's right to kill the baby within her.

While abortion is highly politicized, the secular (and religious Left i.e. the Clintons, Obamas, Bidens-- you know them---"devout Christians" and pro-abortion) have made the case that it's about women's health care. And it's biblically OK, because life doesn't begin until the baby breathes air after it leaves the mother's birth canal.

Sanders continued with words CNN probably would bleep, encouraging the ladies to get angry, if they weren't already. And fight. Promising leadership for the fight.

In reading the text of the several other speakers, I think I saw every 4 letter word ever used by "mad" people to incite others to be as mad as they are.

Although they had expected more, about 300 women showed up in the large warehouse space in the Flatiron district of New York City. While they had hoped for more, this is war, and they'll take what they get in the fight for "safe and affordable abortions for all women."

Columnist Lauren Duca and Hillary Clinton campaign alums Jess Morales Rocketto and Jess McIntosh talked about how worried they are that Trump is going to reverse the "progress" they have made in advancing abortion---each expressing the urgency of the moment and affirming just how mad they too, really are.

Morales Rocketto said Trump and his nominee are "about white men who want complete and total control over our bodies and over our lives," while Duca said---well I won't quote a lot of it--- but woven into the profanity was the reminder that we "are a democracy" and "politicians should stay out of exam rooms. And stay out of our uterus."

And then the main event. Chelsea Clinton.

After applause and thank you's, she said---and I quote her--- "Whether you kind of fundamentally care about reproductive rights and access, right, because again these are not the same thing---if you care about social justice or economic justice, agency------you have to care about this. It is not a disconnected fact...that American women entering the labor force from 1970 to 2009 added three and a half trillion dollars to our economy, right?"

She really said that. And there's more.

"The net, new entrance of women---that is not disconnected from the fact that Roe became the law of the land in January 1973," she said. "So, I think, whatever it is that people say they care about, I think that you can connect to this issue. Of course, I would hope that they would care about our equal rights and dignity to make our own choices, but if that is not sufficiently persuasive, hopefully, some of these other arguments that you're hearing expressed so beautifully will be."

Chelsea Translated.

Even if people (particularly Millennials) are moving away from supporting abortion, and they are, maybe some of these things we're talking about today will help cause them to get mad and fight against Kavanaugh anyway.

And as her father often said, "It's about the economy, stupid." Abortion is good for the economy.

Frankly, I didn't find any beauty in the profanity-laced "other arguments," but apparently beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Take away.

  • Their premise is right. I believe the addition of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court may well be the beginning of the end for Roe v. Wade. Not because Kavanaugh is pro-life and against abortion---although he is---but because the Constitution does not support Roe v. Wade, and most people know it. Kavanaugh is a constitutional originalist.
  • I think these ladies know it and are desperate. Very desperate. So is the abortion industry.
  • If it were true, and I don't believe for a minute it is, that abortion added more than three and a half trillion dollars to our economy---and abortion should be supported because it is good for the economy, think of all the additional ways we can "grow the economy."
When medical expenses begin to increase for people over a certain age, think how much it would help the economy to persuade them to commit assisted suicide. Doctors are already standing by. 
Even if handicapped children slip through the ultrasound process during the mother's pregnancy and are born---think of how much it would contribute to the economy if the children could still be disposed of by infanticide.
  • And speaking of abortion and the economy. How much has it cost the economy and our culture to abort the 55-60 million babies since Roe v. Wade?
What might some of these children contributed to our economy, our culture---to the world?
  • Is "sanctity" a selective value when it comes to life?
  • It is for these folks.

I think their tagline for the "Rise Up For Roe" tour rightly defines the abortion movement at this time:

"It's Time To Get Maximum Hysterical."

Be Informed. Be Faithful. Be Discerning. Be Vigilant. Choose Life.
