Charlotte Pence on the Most Important Social Justice Issue for Millennial’s

We have a great history in this nation of putting an end to great dehumanizing injustices. Let’s take on this giant of injustice together.

“Social justice” is arguably the most powerful political buzzword of our generation. Social justice is the idea that any disparities between social status, wealth, or even biological predeterminism can be rectified with, well, “social” justice.

While we have criminal justice in the courts where blind Lady Justice’s scales make right what has been wronged by those who violate the rights of others, social justice seeks to apply that scale to society.

That is to say, social justice seeks to create a true sense of equality between all people, ending the dehumanization of racism or sexism or sundry “phobias.”

But what is the issue our nation currently faces that dehumanizes a particular group more than any other?

Charlotte Pence, the daughter of Vice President Mike Pence and student at Harvard Divinity School, penned a powerful op-ed in the Washington Times last week framing abortion as the social justice issue for millennial’s.

Abortion, Pence says, is “oppression in its barest form.”

“Yes, abortion is a violation of providing life to a human being — but it should also be acknowledged as oppression in its barest form,” she writes. “It ostracizes the weaker members of society, and it places a particular burden on minority communities.”

She explains:

According to the Guttmacher Institute, abortion rates continue to vary by race and ethnicity. In reference to a study published by the American Journal of Public Health, abortion rates have declined in recent years — but not across every populace. While white women had the lowest abortion rate, black women “were over represented among abortion patients and had the highest abortion rate.”

Income level is also increasingly a major player in the number of abortions. “In 2014, 49% of abortion patients had family incomes below 100% of the federal poverty level, a significant increase from 42% in 2008.” Not only does this show us the majority of people who are aborted, but also the communities that abortion affects.

It is well-established that abortion has always targeted the very same groups of people that the so-called “Social Justice Warriors” on the left seek to create equality for.

They come from the perspective that a baby in the womb is an inconvenience, a burden; in essence, less than human.

How ironically SJW’s dehumanize the unborn members of the same demographic groups they claim to champion.

This is why, Pence argues, abortion must be the most important social justice cause of our generation. Social justice defines how millennials relate to the world, she says, from how we shop to the way we engage in the culture.

To bring an end to the great injustice of abortion must start with the culture and arguing for, well, social justice for the unborn.

“Abolitionists worked to abolish slavery and give meaning to each individual life, rather than seeing a person as disposable property,” Pence explains.

The unborn, and those affected by abortion, are the ultimate marginalized members of society, Pence says, “whose voices we are not hearing because their future has been decided for them.”

“We have taken away their ownership and agency by limiting their ability to fulfill their potential,” she concludes, “In doing this, we provide oppression with a strong foundation to take root in our midst — a foothold that history has shown is not easily broken.”

We have a great history in this nation of putting an end to great dehumanizing injustices. Let’s take on this giant of injustice together.

Winning the New Civil War (OPINION)

An excellent opinion piece…

Published

on

The American Civil War of 1861-65 is considered the first “modern” war. Both sides used advances in communications and military technology that resulted in 600,000 deaths. Now, more than 150 years later, Americans are engaged in a new civil war. This time it is not a war of armies and weapons and regional animosity—it is a war of visions. Liberals and conservatives each have a different vision for the future of the nation. Conservatives believe in the Constitution and the rule of law. The vision of “progressive” liberals is an authoritarian socialist nation run by unaccountable bureaucrats—an approximation of Venezuela, somewhere between Stalin’s Soviet Union and Orwell’s 1984. The conflict over these value systems has escalated into the new civil war. We have many strong indications that this is a hot war: the depredations of Antifa, a contemporary incarnation of Nazi brown shirts; Maxine Waters urging liberals to confront Trump supporters; mobs threatening the homes of prominent conservatives; the attacks on Justice Brett Kavanaugh; and the attempted impeachment of President Trump by partisan Democrats in the House. The war began when Barack Obama was elected president. After promising just the opposite, the Obama presidency played into the leftist strategy of “divide and conquer.” The fraud known as identity politics was a child of the Obama years. Using their perverted version of “diversity,” the Democratic Party—under the leadership of Obama—exploited discontented elements in American society to foment division and hatred. Obama’s comments in case after case—lies and distortions—stoked the fires of racial discord. After eight years of Obama, relations between conservatives and liberals were worse than ever and the country was plunged into darkness. This new civil war is much more intimate than the old one. Instead of North pitted against South, we have friend against friend, neighbor against neighbor, brother…

Congress to Take Action Against ABC News for Covering Up Epstein Story [Developing]

Is the GOP growing a spine?

Here’s something you probably didn’t expect to see today. It could potentially be great news for America, too! Apparently, Congressional Republicans have finally grown a spine and have decided to do something about corruption within the mainstream media. At the very least, it could be a solid start. There’s no reason ABC News should’ve covered-up a bombshell story they had on Jeffrey Epstein years ago. But they did it. Why? Because disgraced former President Bill Clinton was involved? Hmm… There’s also no reason for uninformed Americans to remain uninformed Americans. But if ABC and all other left-leaning outlets continue to hide the truth and bury the facts, then Democrats will continue to win elections. And who is that helping, exactly? From ABC News: Megyn Kelly reported on Sunday night that House Minority Leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) has contacted the president of ABC News and is demanding that the network answer questions about why it killed a bombshell story three years ago on convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein that involved former Democratic President Bill Clinton. The news comes after James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas exclusively reported last month on leaked video footage from inside ABC News that showed anchor Amy Robach admitting that the network had the scandal on Epstein three years ago but that the network spiked it. “Then the Palace found out that we had her whole allegations about #PrinceAndrew…threatened us in a million different ways. We were so afraid that we wouldn’t be able to interview Kate and Will…That also quashed the story.” – @arobach #EpsteinCoverup https://twitter.com/JamesOKeefeIII/status/1195741556390666242?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1195741556390666242&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Ffeminist-chrissy-teigen-calls-republican-rep-elise-stefanik-trash All signs pointed to Epstein being murdered in his jail cell. The writing was on the wall. Everyone could see it. Someone more powerful than he needed to make sure he kept his mouth shut and didn’t sing. It’s that simple. A…
