Obama has already named a controversial Attorney General in Eric Holder, who is finally apologizing for his pardon of fugitive financier Marc Rich. And more recently he named Thomas Perrelli to a high post at Justice,
the lawyer who represented Michael Schiavo in his battle to end the
life of his wife Terri Schiavo and prevent her family from caring for
Now Obama names David Ogden as Deputy Attorney General. What do we know about him? He’s pro-abortion, and he denies the negative effects abortion has on women.
Millions of women deal with a multitude of problems
following an abortion, ranging from medical issues to mental health
But, in legal papers filed during the consideration of a 1992
Supreme Court case, Ogen claimed women don’t deal with negative
experiences resulting from an abortion.
Ogden wrote and filed an amicus brief on behalf of the American
Psychological Association for the Supreme Court’s seminal decision in
Casey v. Planned Parenthood.
In it, Ogden argued, “Abortion rarely causes or exacerbates
psychological or emotional problems. When women do experience regret,
depression, or guilt, such feelings are mild and diminish rapidly
without adversely affecting general functioning.”
Stunning, this wishful thinking. Sheer denial in the face of abundant evidence to the contrary.
Look at the three studies cited there.
Dr. Priscilla Coleman, a professor of Human Development
and Family Studies at Bowling Green State University, and her
colleagues published a study in the Journal of Psychiatric Research showing an abortion-mental health link exists.
The research team found induced abortions result in increased risks
for a myriad of mental health problems ranging from anxiety to
depression to substance abuse disorders.
The number of cases of mental health issues rose by as much as 17
percent in women having abortions compared to those who didn’t have one
and the risks of each particular mental health problem rose as much as
145% for post-abortive women.
I wrote about this two years ago,
when the abortion movement and their media cohorts launched a new
campaign to discredit crisis pregnancy centers and deny the truths of
the post-abortion syndrome.
While (an informed consent bill) is held up in court,
women are speaking up and speaking out themselves about the ravages of
abortion, in the Silent No More campaign among many others.
We often hear abortion supporters say they don’t want any man to
speak for womens’ ‘right to choose.’ But they’ll accept a delusional
one if he’s speaking their talking points. Especially men in high
The Obama nominee appears to believe that childbirth is worse for women than an abortion.
The winner of an election is certainly able and allowed to advance
their agenda and reward their ideological cronies. Just be very aware
of what that is, and who they are. Obama is racking up more in Justice.
