Happy NDOAFAP or NAPAD or Whatever

March 10, 2009 | 8 Comments

Happy National Day of Appreciation for Abortion Providers! Or, is it “National Abortion Provider Appreciation Day”? Nobody really seems to know. Or care!

I guess I’m not really in a position to change that. And I don’t want to! But I must say, this peculiar “holiday” seems to be “celebrated” more by pro-lifers than pro-choicers. Why do we “appreciate” it? Because it makes our adversaries look exactly like what they are . . . completely demented!!

Speaking of demented, I’m in a doubly “celebratory” mood because today is ALSO the first anniversary of the downfall of Eliot Spitzer — the far-left pro-abortion New York Governor who got the enthuiastic backing of NARAL and Planned Parenthood and was elected in a landslide with the slogan “Day One, Everything Changes” (sound familiar??). I was certainly “hoping he would fail” (sound familiar??). It wasn’t enough for him to spread the killing far and wide — as attorney general he also launched a baseless and unsuccessful assault against crisis pregnancy centers. He was even on his way to the Family Planning Advocates’ Annual Conference when news of his prostitution scandal broke.

As was revealed this week, he acted out his violent rape fantasies on the women by choking them. Naturally, he’s hired a lawyer to call the accuser a liar (“this is outrageous and defamatory!” the guy said). Sounds pretty “pro-choice, pro-rape” to me! But it’s now time for a moment of silence — complete and total silence, believe me — from all the pro-choice blogs who ever (and I mean NEVER) called Spitzer a misogynist.

Anyway, I’m thrilled that NDOAFAP or NAPAD or whatever will never again pass without some reminiscing about of one of Big Abortion’s biggest friends. To further help you “enjoy” this day, here’s a round-up of some NDOAFAP/NAPAD/whatever links:

Christina Dunigan of RealChoice.

Christina has renamed it “Abortionist” Appreciation Day even though Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg specifically disapproves of that term. Christina specifically disapproves of abortionists, and names names.

Katha Pollitt at the Nation.

This blood-thirsty abortion demon used to volunteer for the Haven Coalition, which helped women get late-term abortions in New York after the deadline in every other state had passed. The big moral dilemma for her was whether to offer her pre-abortive houseguests People Magazine or The Nicomachean Ethics. In the linked Nation piece, she attacks ultrasound legislation and quotes some abortion advocate as worrying whether the current generation of medical students has enough “fire in the belly” to continue staffing the industry’s needs. Or maybe that just a recommendation for a new abortion technique.

Diana J. at Birth at Home in Arizona.

This National Birth blogger reveals that she is pro-life and that she does NOT appreciate abortion providers!!! Spoil sport. Inviting this gal to your NDOAFAP party would be like having an atheist over for Christmas!

Some Anonymous Moron at Choice Words.

This blog is run by Choice USA, a group founded by Gloria Steinem. “We often think of the abstract concepts of informed choice, agency, and equality [ZZZZZZZZZZZZZ — Ed.] when discussing abortion rights, but the people on the front-lines – the abortion providers – often don’t get the accolades they should.” Don’t bother clicking on the link, that’s pretty much all they say. The next paragraph links to a five-year-old list of suggestions for commemorating the day — a list I’ve seen a whole bunch of pro-choice blogs linking to. How lazy! Plus, most of the suggestions are USELESS by the time you read them. “Organize local appreciation day events,” “organize with others to hold a March 10th dinner with area providers,” “take out ads in your newsletters and local newspapers.” Idiots.

Dr. Suzanne Poppema at RH Reality Check.

Did I already call someone a blood-thirsty abortion demon? Dr. Poppema is one too. “We’re still waiting for Hallmark to make us a special line of greeting cards,” she jokes.

Jivin J at JivinJehoshaphat.

Jivin J helpfully suggests the message for Dr. Poppema’s Hallmark card.

Donna at Random Thoughts of a Fiery Woman.

This post actually re-prints in full the useless list of five-year old suggestions to celebrate NDOAFAP, rather than merely linking to it. I was about to engage in ridicule until I read the next paragraph: “Maybe we should institute a day of appreciation for mass murderers. I’m sure Ted Bundy would’ve appreciated a basket of muffins. Too bad we killed him for being a MURDERER.” This dear pro-life woman’s lawyer recommended she have an abortion so as not to compromise her pending worker’s comp case. (She didn’t). Read the whole thing!

Grayson Dempsey at Backline.

Sure to become an instant classic among lazy pro-choice NDOAFAP bloggers, a list of “10 Reasons We Love Our Local Abortion Providers.” And among pro-life bloggers, who can convert it into a eminently sensible post by simply changing the word “love” to “hate.”

And finally, something to celebrate which is the opposite of abortion. Surely you will enjoy it. (via Jill Stanek via Bethany Kerr).

    Let me put it the way I’ve been putting it elsewhere:

    No thank you. The abortionist never introduced himself, looked at me or talked to me anyway. Meh.

    I spent some time with 40 Days for Life and Silent No More today. Holding my I Regret My Abortion sign. That will show them!! :)

    I will thank you instead. Thank you, RT.

    I’ve checked my site tracking, and my posts are starting to bring in some page views from my blow-bys on Abortionist Appreciation Blogs. I can just hear the frantic clicking as they work to nuke my comment! Why rain on the parade? Why tarnish the image of the Stalwart Provider of Vital Reproductive Health Care Services? Why let a little thing like REALITY ruin the Reproductive Health Reality Check?

    I really appreciate you calling me a “dear pro-life woman” and linking to my blog. I just happened upon an article about the “day” being “celebrated” and decided to just put my opinions on my blog. I have to commend the rest of you who write about abortion regularly. It has re-ignited a fire in me to work against this hideous practice we call “choice”. Way to go ladies, keep up the good work.

    Happy National Day of Appreciation for Abortion Providers!

    Are you serious? Do you seriously have a National Abortionist Appreciation Day?


    And what a litany of butchery at Christina’s! Horrifying.
