MEMBER DIARY

¬Meet Dawn Johnson, White House new head of legal counsel.

 

For those of you who hadn’t had the pleasure, you really should meet Dawn Johnson. This person will be the door for legal policy in the white house, allowing to go in and out what she chooses. Yes, I know it’s hard to meet someone of that stature face to face; but you can often tell who they are by their own words.

 

So, some statements:

1. “The argument that women who become pregnant have in some sense consented to the pregnancy belies reality…and others who are the inevitable losers in the contraceptive lottery no more ‘consent’ to pregnancy than pedestrians ‘consent’ to being struck by drunk drivers.’” 

 Supreme Court amicus brief she authored in Webster v. Reproductive Health Services2. “The woman is constantly aware for nine months that her body is not wholly her own: the state has conscripted her body for its own ends. Thus, abortion restrictions ‘reduce pregnant women to no more than fetal containers.’”

Supreme Court amicus brief she authored in Webster v. Reproductive Health Services

3. “Statutes that curtail her abortion choice are disturbingly suggestive of involuntary servitude, prohibited by the Thirteenth Amendment, in that forced pregnancy requires a woman to provide continuous physical service to the fetus in order to further the state’s asserted interest.”

Supreme Court amicus brief she authored in Webster v. Reproductive Health Services

4. Pro-life supporters are comparable to the Ku Klux Klan

“The ‘terrorist’ behavior of petitioners is remarkably similar to the conspiracy of violence and intimidation carried out by the Ku Klux Klan…”

-Dawn Johnsen, in a Supreme Court amicus brief she authored in Bray v. Alexandria Women’s Health Clinic

>Now. I know elections have consequences and freely admit the abortion horse is outta the barn and abortion is here to stay in this country. I also freely admit that Obama having a very pro-abortion person of legal counsel should be expected.

I can also hear the howls of those leaning left, saying – Oh, yeah ? well, we had to put up with John Ashcroft’s singing hymns and holding daily prayers; we’re do a little fairness; he certainly did not represent all of America. True, but I’ll take any bet that many, many more would have no issue with those actions or his actions supporting pro-life than the statements by Johnson and her support of partial birth abortion.

These statements are by someone who sees pregnancy and motherhood as a burden and enslavement and assigns no responsibility at all to the high majority of women that get pregnant without considering the consequences of having sex every time before they have sex. This woman is very radical in her words, her actions should follow that in the white house. How far do you let it go, because they’re not stopping at this point in the spectrum.
