One of the nation's leading pro-life Christian activist organizations finds it "shocking" that taxpayers are paying for abortion training.
The abortion industry has struggled for years with not having enough doctors available to terminate preborn children. Cheryl Sullenger of Operation Rescue tells OneNewsNow that is why the Bixby Center for Global Reproductive Health in San Francisco was set up.
"There was, in the opinion of these people, a need to train new abortionists in order to keep these abortion clinics open and to promote this ideology that was the basis for this group," Sullenger relays. "That ideology is really population control."
Autistic man: Babies with disabilities deserve a chance
A Virginia resident who politically leans to the left recently shared his personal reason for opposing abortion.
The Daily Caller has released an interview with an unidentified participant in the Virginia March for Life, which was held at the State Capitol on February 13. While he firmly asserted that he leans to the left politically, he said he would consider himself a political moderate and added that he was marching as a cheerleader for his friends.
"I'm autistic," he shared. "I have high-functioning autism, and because we're getting better at detecting disabilities ... I'm trying to encourage people to not abort children with disabilities, because a lot of people think, Oh, they'll have disabilities; their life is going to suck, and it'll be terrible."
The unidentified marcher personally suffers from anxiety and depression, which he regards as highly treatable issues that have helped pave his way through life with happiness.
"People with disabilities often are portrayed as freaks, slow learners, and losers with no friends, but that's not what's happened to me at all," he said.
By participating in the Virginia march, he aimed to lend support to the argument that pre-born babies detected to have disabilities should not be aborted but should be given a chance at life.
One aspect of the Bixby organization is the Ryan Residency Training Program in Abortion and Contraceptives, which trains and sends out young abortionists to terminate pre-born babies. And the organization depends on the taxpayers to make ends meet.
"Some of the funding is provided by the government -- state and federal governments of the United States," the pro-life activist laments. "Taxpayers are actually paying for these programs that target Americans for depopulation. It's really shocking."
The Ryan Program has provided freshly trained young abortionists for many abortuaries throughout the country, including Planned Parenthood facilities in New York City and St. Louis, Missouri, as well as Preterm in Cleveland, Ohio -- all three of which have dismal records of injuring abortion patients seriously enough to send them to hospital emergency rooms and post-abortion patient deaths.
