Anti-Woman Healthcare – HR 3962
November 9, 2009 4 Comments
We interrupt the previously scheduled aforementioned blog post “The “Cave” of Men” to bring you a time sensitive, post instead. (We will do the Cave post after this one!)
It is pretty much common knowledge that the “Pelosi Health Plan”, HR 3962 passed. It did so by a 2 – vote margin (2 votes over the 218 majority). That means it passed by a difference of 5 votes! While these statistics may be intriguing to those of you who enjoy the nuances of politics, this is not our topic for today. I try to steer clear of politics on this site because our mission here is to discover and recover our femininity, and live as the beautiful feminine women we were created to be. However, since this is surely one of the more pressing issues of the day, and because SO MUCH would be changed by the enacting of this legislation, I did some research. (A lot of research actually). What I have found, dear readers, has chilled me to the bone.
This Legislation, HR 3962, is Anti-Woman.
So, this is our topic today. “How can this be? Speaker Pelosi is a woman, why would she draft anti-woman legislation?” you might ask. This is a fair question, especially since Speaker Pelosi also says she is Catholic. The fact that a woman would author, and then ram through Congress, a bill that is in fact, anti-woman, speaks volumes about the state of gender confusion and distortion in our society.
In his encyclical Mulieris Dignitatem, John Paul II wrote, “The moral and spiritual strength of a woman is joined to her awareness that God entrusts the human being to her in a special way. Of course, God entrusts every human being to each and every other human being. But this entrusting concerns women in a special way – precisely by reason of their femininity – and this in a particular way determines their vocation….
A woman is strong because of her awareness of this entrusting, strong because of the fact that God “entrusts the human being to her”, always and in every way, even in the situations of social discrimination in which she may find herself…..
In our own time, the successes of science and technology make it possible to attain material well-being to a degree hitherto unknown. While this favours some, it pushes others to the edges of society. In this way, unilateral progress can also lead to a gradual loss of sensitivity for man, that is, for what is essentially human. In this sense, our time in particular awaits the manifestation of that “genius” which belongs to women, and which can ensure sensitivity for human beings in every circumstance: because they are human! – and because “the greatest of these is love.”
It is no secret that the Pelosi Plan champions Abortion “Rights.” Even with a last-minute amendment to curtail some of the funding aspects of the abortion question, Planned Parenthood Federation of America was completely satisfied. This is enough evidence to support an assumption that abortion “rights” are guaranteed in the Bill.
So. We have a woman, who has, by nature of her God-given Femininity, “the human being entrusted to her” fashioning a bill that destroys them. This is direct evidence of the impact of Satan’s deception – to twist the logic of women into believing that they gain power and freedom when they have the ‘right’ to kill their own babies, to disregard their vocation – which is to “ensure sensitivity for human beings in every circumstance.”
Laura, what exactly are you saying here? I am saying that abortion is not Feminine. The Pelosi Health Care Plan is not Feminine.
Our vocation – and our very femininity – demand of us a defense and witness to life! Our very bodies are made to bring life. We are created to become co-creators, and to protect life inside us for nine months. This internal reality manifests itself in the external reality of our calling to bring our ‘genius’ to the here and now. We are created to protect life and to ‘ensure the sensitivity for human beings in every circumstance’ – even the circumstances that are outlined in HR 3962.
Speaker Pelosi was acting contrary to her God-given Femininity when she authored her Health Care Bill. She was acting in direct opposition to her gift of Femininity when she called for others – most notably the Democratic Women’s Caucus – to support the legislation. Speaker Pelosi needs our prayers.
As if funding and expansion of abortion weren’t bad enough, HR 3962 is anti-woman in other ways as well. Most namely, because it will hurt them. Thats right. HR 3962, the Pelosi Health plan will disproportionately affect women in harmful ways.
One obvious way is that with the abortion industry and the new Government Insurance Industry walking in lockstep with each other (as evidenced by the legislation) there will be an increase in abortions. If the abortion lobby has its way, Abortion will become as common as a Mammograms. A ‘right of a passage,’ and no big deal – just another medical procedure, like getting your tonsils out – and totally covered by the all new Government Program. The problem here is that this is going to cause untold numbers of women intense psychological, and possibly physical harm.
Post Abortion Stress Syndrome is real. It is not made up by pro-lifers. It is immense psychological anguish. You see, when a woman acts against her nature as life-giver, she will suffer consequences. No one can act against nature and not be negatively effected. Ask any counselor who has worked with post-abortive women. They suffer enormously and intensely. There is NOTHING for post-abortive women in the legislation. In fact, many of Speaker Pelosi’s colleagues, especially those in Planned Parenthood, deny the existence of such a condition. This isn’t health care. This isn’t pro-woman! This is legislation that exploits women, and seeks to further confuse them in their understanding of their femininity by telling them that it is a victory for women that Abortion will be covered by the new Government Policy. Then after they exercise this government sponsored “freedom” and act against their natures, they are discarded. Left to deal with the emotional scars and psychological trauma that the beaurocrats who championed their ‘right to abortion’ deny exists. How is this pro-woman? It is not. It is anti-woman. It is disgusting.
Less obvious, but still dangerous to women, is the effect that this Government plan will have on pregnancy. It is already difficult enough to navigate through the medical confusion when you are pregnant. It is not secret that what was once treated as a natural state (pregnancy) is now seen by the medical community as a disease. I was actually asked once by a doctor what my “symptoms” were! I looked at him like he was crazy!
In the brave new world of Government Run and Government Mandated Healthcare, what will happen to Midwives? To independent Birthcenters? To OB/GYNs who recognize that birth is natural and not necessarily a medical condition? Consequently what will happen to women who benefit from these services? (Myself included – all of my children were birthed naturally with Midwives in attendance. My fourth was actually a home birth, and the best experience I have had yet as far as childbirth goes.) But in a system that mandates that the newly created level of beaurocracy must approve all medical procedures, or at the very least, that the new government beaurocrats can deny you ‘treatment’, what is to prevent them from denying a woman medical coverage for her pregnancy, and instead, insisting that she get an abortion? What is to prevent them from mandating that all women receive a hysterectomy at some point – just like they do for Mammograms? There is nothing in the legislation that prevents the government from harming women in such ways. Even scarier, our President has sought to surround himself with advisors and “Czars” who are pro-population control, who believe that women should be sterilized after having a certain number of children. These same advisors, believe that it is acceptable to secretly sterilize women, and to perform tubal ligations and hysterectomies without the consent of the woman! They believe that contraception should be mandatory. These are the people who want to run your healthcare! They are not for health! They are anti-women, and they have NO respect for your God Given Femininity. The gift from Our Father that makes you a bearer of Life. The gift that informs your very being – that gives you a “genius” that our times so desperately need! They want to take away your fertility, and force you to medicate yourself so you cannot have children. They do not care about the side effects of birth control, let alone the side effects of surgical procedures performed with or without consent.
I haven’t even mentioned the ‘death panels’ (yes, they are in the legislation), and the ability of the government to refuse treatment and life-prolonging procedures, and “End of Life Counseling” that is designed to coerce elderly people to be euthenized or to commit suicide. What happened to comforting and taking care of Widows? The elderly? Now it will be “Kill the Widows.”
The late Holy Father’s words were truly prophetic – our times do indeed need a manifestation of that “genius” of woman. Your genius. In the face of blatant anti-life, and anti-woman legislation, perhaps it is time for us to do that which our femininity demands: bring about the “manifestation of that “genius” which belongs to women, and which can ensure sensitivity for human beings in every circumstance: because they are human!”
It is daunting. In the face of this Government run amok, a Government that seems to have forgotten that we are people – with dignity, with rights and with freedoms, we must realize that we are strong. We are strong when we recognize that we, as women, have been entrusted with humanity. That God, in His Wisdom, knows that it is we, feminine, Godly women, striving to be Holy, who can truly bring about change. It is our gift. It is our vocation. It is our calling. We are destined to be the voices and the driving force for that which will protect and uphold the dignity of every single human life. We witness to the beauty and the value of every human being. My dear sisters, God has entrusted the human being to you. “A woman is strong because of her awareness of this entrusting, strong because of the fact that God “entrusts the human being to her”, always and in every way…” You are strong. You are called, and even in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds, and a Congress who doesn’t want to hear our voices, you have a calling and a ‘genius’ – given to you by God.
We must not be disheartened. We must answer the call of our Father and strive to live as the Feminine women that created us to be. We must courageously give witness to this gift. We will revitalize our culture. We will bring about a new understanding of the Truth of our Femininity. We will not give up, and we will not be defeated – not even by anti-woman health care. With God on our side, we cannot fail.
I ask you to join me in praying for our Country, for all those who will be harmed, whether in body, mind, spirit, or bank account by all that this current legislation may bring about. Prayer is our greatest weapon and our greatest comfort. Through prayer we will come to a deeper realization of our awesome gift of femininity, through prayer we will come to realize our ‘genius.’
Thank you for permitting me this digression from our normal discussions. May God Bless your beautiful Feminine Hearts.
