Knickers In a Knot
by Timothy Rollins, The American Partisan
26 April 2003

One is either pro-life or pro-death on the subject of unborn babies. There is no middle ground. You are either for saving the lives of innocent unborn children or for butchering them.

Rush Limbaugh is right. He and I may not always agree on every single point he's brought up over the years, but we do agree far more often than not, and on the issue of these 'pro-choice' nuts, he's dead-on. For to me, it is not pro-choice. One is either pro-life or pro-death on the subject of unborn babies. There is no middle ground. You are either for saving the lives of innocent unborn children or for butchering them. Take your pick - one or the other, as there is no fence straddling any way you look at it.

They are not feminists. They truly are feminazis, with emphasis on the Nazi part of the word. Their argument as it pertains to unborn human life remains fatally flawed, as it has always been. These people are guilty of genocide - there is no other way to look at it. The latest case in point exposing their futility and foolishness is with the controversy surrounding the Laci Peterson murder case out in California.

Through some miracle of memory retention - more likely a look back at old newspaper clippings (these folks aren't exactly Einstein), they remembered the public backlash against them when they publicly backed Andrea Yates when she slaughtered her five children in the Houston suburb of Clear Lake, Texas a couple of years ago.

Currently, the feminazis have their knickers in a knot over Stanislaus County D.A. Jim Brazelton seeking to attach a second count of Murder 1 and the Special Circumstances rider to charges filed against Scott Peterson for killing his wife Laci and their unborn son Connor last December, whose bodies washed up last week on San Francisco Bay.

They contend Connor shouldn't count because he hadn't been born at the time of his death - a specious argument if ever there was one. Even under the most liberal application of fetal definition, this child was viable on account of the fact that Laci was eight months pregnant, and Connor could have very easily survived outside the womb had his mother not been killed.

Feminazis fear that allowing a double murder charge to forge ahead under a 30-year old California law that allows for this charge to be filed when a pregnant woman is slain will set a precedent that scares them - this despite the fact that said law has been repeatedly upheld on appeals.

Just as society was horrified at the brutal murder of actress Sharon Tate back in 1969 - especially when she plead for the life of her unborn child, only to have herself carved up with emphasis on her abdominal region by Manson and his groupies from hell, so now we have reached the point where the daily butchering of the unborn goes on without so much as a second thought because of the careless and irresponsible actions of those who lack the self-discipline to keep their pants on. Say what you want, but in this day and age of disease, unwanted pregnancy and all, the merits for the law of chastity before marriage and fidelity afterwards grows by leaps and bounds each day, regardless of what one's religious or other spiritual persuasion may or may not be. It just makes sense.

The disregard by society of pregnant women as a symbol of continuance only serves as a further regression of the increasing indifference and depravity with which many view human life - including their own. Is it any wonder that the rates for violent crime, particularly suicide, are going up once again after a brief downturn?

Believe it or not, it was through a conversation with my good friend and fellow colleague Linda Razzano in Dallas last night who reminded me of a quote from the Shakespeare play "A Midsummer Night's Dream" (Act II, Scene I) where Titania raises the son of a friend, a mortal woman who died shortly after the boy was born. The play on a full sail is similar to a woman's pregnant body when walking. Because she so loved her friend, she now passes that love onto her friend's son. Titania views the boy as having great worth; notice the use of the term "rich" twice when describing him.

So different from today, where unborn babies are "fetuses." Funny, I never saw a store advertising "Fetuses 'R' Us," or "fetus clothes" or heard of friends holding a "fetus" shower.

From "A Midsummer Night's Dream":

When we have laugh'd to see the sails conceive,
And grow big-bellied with the wanton wind;
Which she, with pretty and with swimming gait
Following, -- her womb then rich with my young squire,--
Would imitate; and sail upon the land,
To fetch me trifles, and return again,
As from a voyage, rich with merchandise.
But she, being mortal, of that boy did die;
And for her sake do I rear up her boy:
And for her sake I will not part with him.


One cannot help but wonder how these fanatics - the feminazi extremists in today's women's rights movement would have felt had their mothers chosen to abort them.

Kinda makes you wonder, doesn't it?
