Want letters? Write about abortion and race

By Dave Weinbaum

http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | Worried about a lack of attention in your life? Write about your opinion of abortion. Then follow up with one about the founder of Planned Parenthood and her "Negro Project." I did. I got praised, pummeled and prayed upon. Some wished me G-d blessings and some damned me to Hell.

Thus far, I've received over 175 written communiques on these two columns. Since I have a habit of answering most of my emails, I'd like to entertain you with some of the give and take. Hope you're as entertained and enlightened as I.

Some names have been changed to protect the guilty—and prevent frivolous lawsuits.

Harold to Binyamin Jolkovsky, Editor in Chief of JWR: I see that you are again giving bandwidth to some clown who is trying to pretend that the cluster of cells that is a fetus is some kind of sentient human being. I'm sick of being assaulted be this dreck. Please stop my subscription and also please stop my monthly donation.

My response sent to Harold and Bin: Sorry, I didn't realize I had to run my column before Harold for his approval. I have a feeling you may pick up a few donations that may offset Harold's generous, but conditional donations from my many positive responders. As to my being a clown, Maybe Harold would like to hire me out. I do birthday parties and bar mitzvahs. Of course one needs to be born to have one of these. PS. Harold, ever wonder if your mom made the right choice when you were just a "cluster of cells…??

Cathy: I worked with a lady who had an abortion years ago. Came the day the baby WOULD have been born, she cried. When I asked her what was wrong, she said, "He would have been ten today…"

Bill: This is the article of the year. I'm forwarding this to everyone on my list. When will people wake up that abortion is MURDER?

Carl: HAHAHAHAHA! Did Dave Weinbaum just try to blame abortion on President Obama? My response: I would never blame abortion on Obama. What I accused him of is enabling infanticide.

Walter: This one hits you right in the gut, boychick…

Carl: You gave the perspective of a rich, white man…

John: Thanks for a touching story. Great Reagan quote, too.

Sam: Your latest piece at JWR is nothing but the same old tired anti-choice rhetoric. It completely avoids the facts. (Here are some of Sam's facts, paraphrased.) The baby feels no pain if abortion done in first trimester. The main reason for abortion is poverty. Late-term abortions are done because of medical complications.

Ginger: Wonderful article, Dave. I did get the goose bumps.

A famous Catholic Priest: Not bad for a Jew. My response: Go bless yourself, Father. Jesus didn't do too bad for a Jew either. (No hard feelings, all was in fun…I think.)

Mike: Do you think Planned Parenthood wanted to eradicate a race?

Regan: My mother was an abortion advocate. I survived because Roe V Wade wasn't decided before I was born. She can't understand why I'm pro life. Ironically, she depends on me now and my children for transportation, companionship and a feeling of HER importance. She still feels I should be pro abortion.

Michael: Our society has dehumanized the cruel act of killing a child in the womb. No one speaks for the rights of the unborn.

Darlene: If unwanted pregnancies is Planned Parenthood's mission, WHY ARE THERE SO MANY UNWANTED PREGNANCIES?

Linda: I loved this article, Dave! It's hard to get pro life men to be as verbal about this subject. My Response: I'm speechless.

Joe: "Sanger viewed the Negro Project as another effort to help African Americans gain better access to safe contraception…" My response: What CRAP! The Negro Project was meant to kill as many blacks as possible so the preferred race, (white) could dominate. Sound familiar? It was the same philosophy used by that other Malthusian fan, Adolf Hitler.

Melissa Ohden-(Abortion survivor, the subject of the first column): I do remember Dave…rather unforgettable man. He's fantastic and terribly witty. My response: Reader, you really didn't expect me to leave THAT out, did you?

Some comments referred to lack of help available for poor pregnant women. Pregnancy Resource Centers are coming on line throughout the USA . If you can't find one, call a local place of worship and I can almost guarantee they'll help.

My lawyer, Evil Bastard passed the first article on to a Catholic Priest. Rumor is that it's going to be the theme of his Easter Sermon.

To quote the other "commenting" Catholic Priest, "Not bad, for a Jew."
