When I was a young lad in the mid-seventies and abortion became an issue in Belgium, groups opposing the practice used as their main slogan: "Abortus is Moord" [Abortion is Murder - MFBB]. How well do I recall my father's sneering remarks about those groups which he considered archconservative backward christian zealots. He had those remarks invariably followed by what he assumed was the basic logic justifying killing fetuses: when a woman had been raped, when scans revealed the fetus was malformed etc.

My father, never a liberal, but actually a staunch conservative (although he never used those terms), was just another victim of leftist propaganda - even back then. It has never been different.

And those cases were never the issues spurring abortion activists to seek legislation sanctioning murder in the womb.

Technically, my own wife had an abortion eleven years ago. In her thirteenth month. When an echo revealed, indeed, incurable deformities of our unborn child. Not only that, but carrying on the fetus might have meant the death of my wife when it would have been time to deliver.

We did not need legislation. The staff at UZ Ghent was very understanding and helpful. In matters like these, it is far better to trust on sound judgment from reasonable people which you can count on will be present. The fetus was removed, then cremated, and we asked for, and got, a Christian service for little Adam (as my wife had christened him) from the priest responsible for the chapel on the premises of the University Clinic.

Adam rests forever under the weeping willow tree in our back garden.

No, the so-called reasons pro-abortionists always profferred as the grounds for their grisly undertaking actually come into play in a surprisingly small percentage of cases. But what the legislation has caused is the elimination on an industrial scale, protected by law, of perfectly healthy fetuses.

Our moral betters are evil - plain and simple. And evil begets more evil. It is therefore not surprising that abortion spawned this horrible trade.

Watch this video and shiver:

Obama was the first sitting president to address Planned Parenthood, in 2013:

"Remarks by the President at the Planned Parenthood Conference

Marriott Wardman Park Hotel - Washington, DC
26 April, 2013
11:17 A.M. EDT
THE PRESIDENT: Hello, everybody! (Applause.) Thank you. Thank you! (Applause.) All right, everybody have a seat. Have a seat. You're making me blush. (Laughter.)

THE PRESIDENT: I love you back. Thank you. (Applause.)
Cecile, thank you for the warm introduction, and thank you for the outstanding leadership that you’ve shown over the years. You just do a great, great job. (Applause.) I want to thank all of you for the remarkable work that you’re doing day in, day out in providing quality health care to women all across America. You are somebody that women -- young women, old women, women in between -- count on for so many important services. And we are truly grateful to you.

I'm sorry that I could not be at the party yesterday. I understand it was a little wild. (Laughter.) That's what I heard. But as all of you know, obviously, we've gone through a pretty tough week and a half, and I was down in Texas, letting the people of West, Texas know that we all love them and care about them in their time of grieving. (Applause.)

But obviously this is a special national conference, because it’s been nearly a hundred years since the first health clinic of what later would become Planned Parenthood opened its doors to women in Brooklyn. And for nearly a century now, one core principle has guided everything all of you do -- that women should be allowed to make their own decisions about their own health. (Applause.) It’s a simple principle.

So what I see in this audience, extraordinary doctors and nurses, and advocates and staff who work tirelessly to keep the doors at health centers all across the country going, then I'm reminded of those very early efforts and all the strides that we've made in subsequent decades. And I also think about the millions of mothers and daughters and wives and sisters, friends and neighbors who walk through those doors every year..."

Is there anything this monster does that's actually beneficial to the country? Anything at all?
