Iowa Democrats Thank God For Abortion

Living a stones throw and a river away from Iowa, a person would think Iowa and Nebraska to be similar in a lot of ways.  There maybe a lot of similarities, like both states are full of corn (except western parts of Nebraska) but none of similarities appear to be political:

Iowa Democrat gubernatorial candidates Jack Hatch and Tyler Olson joined 50 pro-abortion activists in an extended prayer for abortion rights during a rally at the State Capitol.

You read that right and it wasn’t just a passing mention within the prayer.  The prayer as lead by activist Midge Slater went like this:

“We give thanks, oh Lord, for the doctors, both current and future, who provide quality abortion care.”

“We pray for increased financial support for low-income women to access contraception, abortion and childcare.”

“Today, we pray for women in developing nations, that they may know the power of self-determination. May they have access to employment, education, birth control and abortion.”

“Today we pray for the families who have chosen. May they know the blessing of choice.”

It sounds bad enough just from the description, the video is much worse.  Let’s take all the sanitary words out of the prayer and see what they were really praying for:

“We give thanks, oh Lord, for the doctors, both current and future, who rip living healthy babies out of women’s wombs.”

“We pray for increased money from every hard working American via increased taxes to pay for low-income women to access contraception, abortion and childcare.”

“Today, we pray for women in developing nations, that they may know the power of self-mutilation. May they have access to employment, education, birth control and the ability to tear unborn babies apart.”

“Today we pray for the families who have killed their own babies. May they know the blessing of killing.”

Really!  Isn’t this really what the prayer is saying?  Doesn’t the prayer from the Iowa democrats sound like they should be praying to Satan?  Maybe it is a prayer to the Greek goddess, Keres (the goddess of death and destruction).

Maybe the gubernatorial candidates were like Obama in Rev. Wright’s church…not paying attention.  Well let’s see what their reaction was:

Tyler Olson and State Senator Janet Petersen (D-Des Moines).

“We need a governor who will encourage women and girls to seek a doctor, not prevent them from doing so,” Petersen said, clearly referring to abortion doctors. “Governor Branstad’s administration and his party have been actively working to limit women’s reproductive healthcare in the state from the moment he took office.”

Sen. Petersen has endorsed Olson for governor.

Hatch was the next speaker. He rehashed the controversy from two years ago when he opposed the appointment of a pro-life Catholic woman to the Iowa Board of Medicine, once again claiming his opposition had nothing to do with her being pro-life, despite all evidence to the contrary. Hatch even earned a thistle from the liberal Des Moines Register for that episode.

Apparently, Jack Hatch has discovered a line somewhere buried deep in the U.S. Constitution that states taxpayers must fund other people’s abortions. Hatch referred to Republican legislators’ attempts to strip taxpayer funding for abortions as “wanting to deny a woman their constitutional right to have an abortion”. He did not provide the article or amendment where that language is written.

Nope, I guess they were awake.

It is scary as to what resides in the state just to the east.  Amazing how a river (the Missouri river) can separate conservatives from a state with an abundant share of nuts.
