A Very American Scam

For fifty years abortion was a part of the national political debate due to the fight to overturn Roe v. Wade. Those who opposed abortion sought to overturn this court decision, thus returning the issue to the people. The pro-life side assumed they could win the argument and get laws passed to end most abortions. The pro-abortion people obviously fought to prevent this, even though they always claimed the vast majority of the people saw abortion as a holy sacrament.

Abortion was always a good money maker for Conservative Inc. because on the one hand, they only had to pay lip service to the moral issue. It was not as if they could pass legislation or change a regulation to meet the demands of their voters. The courts would just strike down those changes. On the other hand, the only path to victory was getting a majority of pro-life people in office, especially the White house, so the courts could be stocked with pro-life judges. That meant voting Republican.

The way the two party grift has worked since the middle of the last century was that the Democrats conjure novel ideas and find creative ways to normalize them with the progressive segment of the population. Once these ideas gain circulation, the Republicans pretend to oppose these new ideas. Both sides squabble over it, thus narrowing the options to their preferred positions. Then they aggressively fundraise off it as the novel ideas are slowly implemented.

The genius of this arrangement is the elites get what they want, while both parties protect themselves from outside threats by sucking all the oxygen out of the room in their endless media debates. With the oxygen comes the money, which keeps both camps in the lifestyle they think they deserve. Just as important, none of that money goes to anyone who has a third opinion. The political rackets rest on every issue being reduce to a binary choice.

Here is where you can see why the ruling class hates Trump. When he ran for office, he went to the pro-life crowd with a rational offer, rather than the old offer they have always got from conservatives. He told them he needed their vote and even though he was not one of them, he would deliver for them because he needed their vote. Social conservatives, outside of the professional ones, saw this as a rational offer and maybe better than what they have gotten for the last fifty years.

In office, Trump did what he saw as the rational thing and set about appointing pro-life judges up and down the system. From his point of view, this made perfect sense as he would need the support of these people in the next election. If he could show he delivered, then they would come out in droves. His good fortune was that things broke in such a way that the court finally overturned Roe. Both parties hate him because of things like this that disrupt the political rackets.

Putting that aside, the overturn of Roe was a disaster for Pro-Life Inc and the elite of the social conservativism rackets. They no longer had this issue to use in their fundraisers, other than to wage battles at the state level. Since the leaders of these rackets live in swanky homes around the imperial capital, heading out to the wilderness to help the Dirt People wage political fights is horrifying. This idea is equivalent to Pol Pot sending the intellectuals out to the rice fields.

Since the court sent the issue back to the states, the people running for national office no longer have a reason to primp and preen about abortion. If the national candidates stop talking about abortion, the associated money rackets no longer have a reason to raise money to help “their candidates.” That means the money givers no longer have a reason to give money to these guys. Suddenly, thanks to Trump, a billion-dollar industry is threatened with extinction. What to do?

This is why we now have the mass media claiming abortion is the most important issue on the minds of voters. If a Democrat wins a race for dog catcher in East Podunk Missouri, the Washington Post has a pic of young females standing in line to vote, with the claim they are there because of abortion. The political experts, who are always wrong about everything, rush in to explain how this is a threat to Trump as women too busy in their cubicles to have sex are furious about abortion.

It is all nonsense, but despite the fact the media is nothing but a firehose of lies, people still fall for these tricks, especially people who call themselves conservative. Integral to being a conservative is accepting without question the opinions of your enemies while endlessly tone policing your supporters. If the New York Times announces that the cool kids are now wearing flowerpots on their heads, conservatives will swear it is true and produce the conservative case for flowerpots.

This is where Conservative Inc. has swung into action on abortion. Their new scheme to re-nationalize the issue is to champion a national ban on abortion. You see, their big idea now that the courts sent the issue back to the states, something conservatives argued for since Roe, is to take it back from the states and pass a bill that bans all abortion at the federal level. Of course, they cannot do this without your support so make your check out to Conservative Inc.

The only way such a scheme could ever happen is if the Republicans had a huge majority in the House, a super-majority in the Senate and had a pro-life president in the White House. Thanks to Republican support for open borders and election rigging, this is now impossible. Even if it did happen, the Bush years tell us that they would fink on their voters anyway. Remember fake evangelical George Bush nominating pro-abortion Harriet Miers to the court?

Abortion is a good example of why moral issues cannot be decided through any sort of democratic process. Even if the process is legitimate and the participants come to the issue in good faith, you will not get universal agreement. If such an agreement were possible, it would have happened organically and then the only politics around the issue would be about the best policy to support the moral consensus. Otherwise, there is no debating someone out of their sense of right and wrong.

This is why the scam that is the American political system loves moral issues like abortion, because they can never be solved politically. This means they can frame it as two sides with neither side ever having a chance to fully win. Roe was manna from heaven for Conservative Inc., but now the overturning of Roe is manna from Gaia for the aging spinsters running the feminism rackets. They can finally stop talking about men in dresses waving their genitals at children.

If one is looking for a white pill in these dark times it is that the abortion issue has finally returned to its natural place. Like all moral issues, it is one that must be decided by the collective agreement of likeminded people. This means it is a local issue. States and localities can then treat abortion the same way they manage other thorny moral issues like the location of gentlemen’s clubs. In the end, sanity prevailed, and abortion has become something for communities to resolve on their own.

“it is that the abortion issue has finally returned to its natural place. Like all moral issues, it is one that must be decided by the collective agreement of likeminded people.

The pro lifers really got caught napping in 2022. I think you’ll see much stronger voter participation in future state-level contests. That being said, most outright bans will lose 60-40. The pro lifers need to focus on why abortions are down 30-40% from 1990. Good health care, other contraceptive options, and good old “SCIENCE!” To wit: Bring forward state constitutional amendments guaranteeing every parent free 3D ultrasounds of their baby at 10, 20, 30 and 35 weeks.

I don’t see how it’s a loaded statement…it’s a statement of fact. Abortions were around 1.5M in 1990 and under 1M today.

Imagine a campaign involving getting women to quit working and raise families…and then exempting them from taxes (only benefits people who actually pay taxes).

So many things in our society would get better if we could get women out of the workforce.

Trump appointed some pro-life judges but he is no social conservative. Life Site News summed him up thus:
“A supporter of same-sex “marriage,” Trump nominated a variety of pro-LGBT officials to various government posts and judicial vacancies and continued an Obama-era executive order on “gender identity nondiscrimination” and U.S. support for international recognition of homosexual relations at the United Nations Human Rights Council. His campaign actively courted LGBT-identifying voters with rainbow merchandise.”

I don’t think there’s a correlation. Abortion rates are down 30-40% since 1990. Society is astonishingly worse. This is where the pro lifers are fighting the wrong battle. It’s not abortion vs no abortion. It’s killing people vs. having babies. You won’t get whites to start making babies again until you make it so people can actually see benefit to it. People used to have lots of kids because women stayed home and child mortality was high. To a lesser extent, kids helped bring money into the home or were at least a wash because they could work the farm.… Read more »

That isn’t true, there are plenty of other eugenic methods that would be at least as effective. Offering incentives to self-sterilize while at the same time de-incentivizing bastardy would fix those problems immediately for example. People volunteered themselves and even their children for medical experimentation for the price of a donut.

You’re confusing the theoretical with the factual. It is true that such measures could theoretically be taken. But they aren’t about to be implemented. So the real world effect of no abortions is likely to be a faster path to white minority and more unemployable and otherwise problematic people being born.

In terms of absolute numbers, abortion results in the loss of more white babies than black babies (about 50% more in the US, from numbers I just checked) – because there are so many more white women than black women in the population.

There were about 18.5k homicides in America in 2023 and about 1MM abortions in the same year. If we assign 100% of those homicides to males, and if we assign agency to women, then women were responsible for about 55x more murders than men were in America last year.

I’ve tended to lean in the pro- choice direction (though I support third and many second trimester restrictions/bans). Nonetheless a lot of the pro-life people seem like genuinely kind people who oppose abortion in the same way that people care for the weak or for animal welfare.

There is a certain vocal (but not very numerous) segment of the pro life community, personified by Richard greenhorn on Twitter and American sun and Ben ziesloft who just want to control people and who probably should take a long walk off a short pier

Conservative Inc. showed its true colors in 2015 when Planned Parenthood was under siege for selling baby parts. Instead of stripping P.P. funding from the federal budget, Paul Ryan and his gaggle ignored the issue.

Abortion rights long ago was a boutique issue mostly supported by the social elite (AKA, wealthy Republicans) and Jews. The Dems were too dependent on working class Catholics to push it. The 60s saw the Dems start their abandonment of the white working class on the way to becoming a Jewish party and also the party of abortion rights. The GOP has never been able to effectively oppose that agenda because they still contain a large number of influential establishment Republican types who are powerful in the party.

Kudos to Frank Herbert’s Dune series: There’s an uneasy yet penetrating truth when he connects womankind with The Bene Gesserit. And the atavistic determination to carry out their priorities to complete fruition, like in the present-day little lady’s will to abort.

Abortion is mostly a dead issue as those who care most passionately about it, have passed their window of fertility 40 years ago. It is a small advantage for Democrats, but not the decisive one. The biggest issue is the negative effect of intelligence, ESPECIALLY male intelligence, on fertility. Women abhor intelligence in men, unless it is offset by charisma, and especially cruelty and domination which is a marker of high status. In a very long (more than a few years) struggle like the original Cold War, emphasis will be on promoting more of “loyal” smart guys including reproduction. As… Read more »

The discussion on federalism is quite the red herring and it obscures the critical points. The “morality” of abortion—and the morality of anything else for, that matter—is defined simply and solely by what it is, not by whether it was legalized at the state level instead of the federal level, or whether people like it or agree with it. Right and wrong are not subject to the whims of a democratic majority, and a consensus can err just as much as an individual can. Abortion is always morally wrong. There can be no two ways about that. Its status as… Read more »

The assumption that compromise of some kind is more ethical has no more basis in objective truth than that abortion is or isn’t always morally wrong. Neither does lack of general consensus suggest compromise is some objectively best resolution to a moral question. Seeking consensus of the population at large has the arrow of cause and effect backwards. A utilitarian acknowledgement of how things are rather than how we wish they were suggests appeals to traditional authority could be a powerful tool in challenging the moral framework of our political enemies.

Blue-hair Twitter Jews’ claims that abortion is a sacred rite of Judaism aren’t easily refuted.

I might think “But Jews are wrong about everything” is a fine argument (because I’ve met my mother) and Christians might think “Jews are right about everything except [short list]” is convincing (it isn’t), but—

If nothing else, Jews have an *older claim* to universal morality than almost everyone does. It’s conservative, both temperamentally and epistemologically, to assume they’re right. And they do agree: Kill the babies.

At best, it’s determined analytically in the sense of figuring out what morality seems to produce the best results for a certain people at a certain time. But even that can change over time or as the people change.

It is charged with at least as much potential given the right charismatic and uncompromising leadership.

Where can I contribute? The last thing we need is more ferals running around.

I’m all for people procreating in the context of a nuclear family, but not under the current conditions of society. In fact, I would give them abortion vouchers. A one-time abortion voucher is cheaper than Obama phones and food stamps for an entire lifetime.

If you want to befuddle Christians, ask them why abortions, which are a 3,000-year-old procedure wasn’t addressed by Jesus in the New Testament? He knew about it and it was hotly debated at the time. If it was so important to jesus, why didn’t he spell it out for us. Of course, they’ll respond with “thou shalt not kill.” But Jesus was supposed to be all knowing and the embodiment of perfection. He should have known that they were stupid people/skeptics like me who need to have it spelled out for them. It seems to me that people are trying… Read more »

I am American and I presume you are as well.

In many ways the abortion stuff is a false issue obscuring the real questions about the role of women and the role of the Sexual Revolution in modern society. I have always found it interesting that abortion only became an issue a few years after oral contraceptives were invented. Indeed, the precedent for Roe v. Wade that established the bogus “right to privacy” was the case of Griswold v. Connecticut, when Planned Parenthood challenged a state law banning contraceptives. In other words, The Pill made the Sexual Revolution possible, but women proved to be too feckless and insouciant to take… Read more »

Of all of the great surprises of my life, one of the biggest is that women, who supposedly have an innate desire to mother life, would rejoice in killing children in the womb.

I’m not the first one to say this, but female nature is nothing like what tradition tells you.

This is one case where the wisdom of tradition is simply incorrect. Women are much less admirable than our ancestors told us they were.

“It is what it is”

If more people took this attitude towards things the world would be a saner place. Instead the typical Western attitude has been to assume that if something seems unfair or undesirable we must crusade to get rid of it, usually through legislation and mass movements. This leads directly to utopian notions that there is some demiurge directing all of history towards some omega point. You see this in those sappy leftist bumper stickers on old Volvos about how “the arc of history bends towards justice”, with justice defined as a lot of egalitarian nonsense.

The only thing I actually learned from looking at crime stats, because I already knew the rest from experience/observation, is that if a kid is dead, its mother killed it (statistically).

It’s easy to make up evolutionary excuses for that, but it’s still evidence that men and women are very, very different. Men kill each other, women kill children, and nobody kills women (statistically).

We pretend the *exact opposite* is true. Insert evolutionary excuse for that.

Regardless of the moral issues, the 10th Amendment clearly assigns such issues to be decided by the States..At the time the Constitution was passed, abortion was a crime in every State..So Roe v Wade, one of the worst and most idiotically written SCOTUS decisions in history, had to be reversed, simply on Constitutional grounds..Now if women want an abortion, and it isn’t allowed in their State, they can go to another State where it is allowed….
So IMO, as a Constitutional lawyer, a Federal law banning all abortions would be un-Constitutional as well…and will not happen

They then run home to their community and brag about their voting record and how they are the most conservative member of Congress.

I’m kind of in the same boat as you are in. I am a non-believer, but call myself and think of myself as a “cultural Christian.” If the atheists create a White ethnostate and invite me, I’m not accepting it. I’ll go with the Christians any day of the week. Organized atheism (as opposed to people who would call themselves agnostic or simply non-believers) is the worst form of cultural cancer and they are universally unpleasant odious people. There are many factions within atheism, all with pretty stupid or evil motivations for their atheism. The feminists are atheists because they… Read more »

I don’t believe I will see a “white ethnostate” in what remains of my life (pushing 78), nor do I believe there’ll ever be one, given demographics and land distribution. The only ethnostate now extant, so far as I know, is Israel. Ponder all the implications of that and an ethnostate, assuming it were possible, might no longer seem a good idea off paper.

Think a little bit further. If abortion was defined as murder, and murder was punished with the death penalty, (both of which are highly supported by the Bible) there would be a lot fewer of the people who get abortions. One way or the other. Particularly since accomplices and people who make contracts for a crime can be charged with the same crime.

So there is at least the possibility of some common ground, there.

“Traditional Christians see every baby in the womb as sacred, even if retarded or disabled.”

Yes they do. They are also against exterminating the retarded or disabled people breathing air.

“Non-believers like me want to prune the unfit branches of the tree, as sad as that may be.”

The sad part is, the definition of “unfit” gets ever more encompassing once the Improvers of Mankind get going on it.

It’s revealing that the GOP establishment wants to keep every fight on the federal level. Supposedly, they’re the states’ rights party, the “let’s keep everything as local as possible” party. And that’s a winning argument. It has moral standing, “Let each community decide what’s right for it.” It also plays into a weakness of the Left, which is much, much weaker in flyover country and really doesn’t have a great desire to fight it out state by state.

When they do make moral claims, it’s always weak. For example, There’s an easy slam-dunk on the college loan racket in making a moral claim college students were sold a fake bill of goods by the Higher Education Industrial complex, and they should foot the bill for all this outstanding debt.

Instead of this obvious means of damaging the left’s patronage network, they talk about how forgiving loans would be stealing. It’s true, mind you, but a far weaker moral claim than refusing to help the guy with 200k in undissolvible student loans.

The tricky thing about abortion is that while it is a moral issue for one side, it is a practical issue for the other side. Large numbers of women are too lazy to take precautions — or something “just happens” — and abortion offers a convenient way out of the mess. For women, keeping their options *wide open* is the driving force. The few women who oppose abortion are acting out of loyalty to another culture, like hispanic chicks or trad-Christian gals.
