Republicans Want To Ban Porn (Seriously)TYT Network

Published on Aug 28, 2012 by TheYoungTurks
"The GOP platform committee has included a plank in this year's draft document calling for "vigorous" enforcement of anti-pornography laws. In a press release Monday from Morality in Media, a faith-based non-profit, President Patrick Trueman, a former anti-porn prosecutor, calls the current distribution of pornography "a violation of current federal law" and lauds Republicans for approving stricter new wording...".* The Young Turks host Cenk Uygur breaks it down.

Religious Right and the Republicans are in one way or another at war with most other American citizens. The ultra-right wing is involved in a war against "secular Humanists". liberals, progressives or even moderate conservatives and moderate Republicans. Thei wars include " War on Women", "War on contraception" , "War on Abortion" and its War on Gays, War On Porn, War On Liberals ,War on Islam-

In the end these ultra-right wing Christian Warriors have only their hate, bigotry, their closed minds to keep them going. They forget Jesus preached, love, compassion, tolerance and being careful how we judge other people . Jesus doesn't talk about using brute force or the use of the military and police to get others to accept his teacings.
It needs to be repeated a thousand times that no one is forcing young girls or adult women to have abortions.

The reason many believe abortion should be a safe and legal option is that legal or not many women will have abortions and many of them will die by getting an illegal unsafe abortion or by using other cruder means to have an abortion ie the coat hanger or by physically harming themselves to bring about a spontaneous abortion or misscarriage .

According to Frank Schaeffer who was an insider in the 1970s and 1980s beginnings of the Religious Right claims that abortion was by chance chosen as a major issue to be exploited to gain wide support for the Religious Right's Dominionist agenda of making America into a Christian nation.

Frank Schaeffer was more than just any insider in the movement but was the son of the highly acclaimed the Religious Right founder and its most eloquent and scholarly philosopher, theologian , and activist strategist.It was Francis Schaeffer who tied all the various concerns and issues of the Christian Right which they had with modernity from teaching the theory of evolution to the creation of a more tolerant pluralistic , multicultural society under the umbrella term he used for the enemies of God's Law "Secual Humanism."

In the beginning the Religious Right leaders were not that concerned about abortion as a social and political issue but became convinced that for pragmatic reasons it was an issue which could be used to galvanize the Christian Right.

The Abortion War: Fault Lines investigates the forces behind the so-called war on women in the US. via,August 30,2012

It has become one of the most vicious, important and divisive battlegrounds in the 2012 US presidential election.

Since it was legalised in 1973, the issue of abortion has polarised the US, but now the battle has been taken to a new level.

Last year, an unprecedented number of laws have been passed across the US, all aimed at restricting abortion or reproductive rights.

But the fight goes far beyond the medical procedure, with Republican politicians even attacking the Obama administration for making contraception more readily available.

The US has seen more anti-abortion violence than any other country in the world. Since 1993, at least eight abortion providers, including four doctors have been killed. And there have been over 200 arsons and bombings against reproductive healthcare clinics since 1977.

Why is a medical procedure being reframed as a deeply divisive moral issue in the US?

Fault Lines travels to California to meet the next generation of frontline troops fighting to ban abortion, and to Ohio and Tennessee to investigate what lies behind the so-called war on women.
