I Hate Mothers

Well, no, I don’t – but plenty of other people seem to. But don’t take my word for it. Please watch this video. It is one of the most bizarre, ugly and reprehensible videos you will see on this Mothers’ Day: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x0w669fZBH8

Talk about a culture which is scraping the bottom of the septic tank. Using Mothers’ Day to celebrate the wretched agenda of Planned Parenthood and its baby killing agenda is about as low as you can go. How diabolical and hate-filled can some people be?

Sure, they are claiming they are doing this out of concern about maternal deaths, but it is really just another cheap trick to promote the pro-death agenda of groups like Planned Parenthood. One article discusses this anti-mothering initiative this way:

“This Sunday, children of all ages will celebrate the role mothers play in their lives. But Vogue model Christy Turlington Burns and a host of female celebrities are encouraging mothers across the nation to ignore their children as part of ‘No Mother’s Day,’ a sign of their support for reducing maternal mortality by supporting family planning and global access to abortion.

“The campaign asks women to ‘disappear’ on Mother’s Day to raise awareness of maternal mortality rates and underscore ‘just how much a mother is missed when she’s gone.’ But amidst positive initiatives such as improved health care for complications such as hemorrhage and sepsis, the campaign promotes ‘safe’ abortion, and the legalization of abortion in nations where the practice is currently illegal, as a means of lowering maternal deaths.

“A press release for Every Mother Counts, the nonprofit Turlington launched in 2010, notes a new PSA ‘features moms encouraging other moms to join in solidarity by disappearing on May 13th, Mother’s Day. No phone calls. No emails. No social media. No gifts.’

“Turlington told Time magazine, ‘It’s a day to stop going through the motions…It’s about taking that [day] back.’ The spot, which was posted online last Wednesday and is directed by Ed Burns, features Turlington, former ‘Will and Grace’ star Debra Messing, NBC’s Ann Curry, Jennifer Connelly, Kelly Rutherford,  Blythe Danner, Dayle Haddon, and other high-profile women.

“Amongst the project’s partners are the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, the extreme pro-abortion group Women Deliver, and the United Nations Population Fund. The UNPFA is well known in pro-life circles for the fact that the U.S. State Department confirmed over a number of years that the organization provides ‘financial and technical assistance’ for China’s vicious one-child policy.”

Of course if these radicals were really concerned about preventing death – both to mothers and children – then they should stop spruiking the abortion crusade, and start campaigning against it. Abortion obviously kills millions of unborn babies every year, but plenty of mothers die from “legal” abortions as well.

And despite what she claims in her documentary, the facts lie elsewhere: “The film’s assertion that legal abortion is safe is belied by worldwide data on the matter. A recent study out of Chile shows maternal mortality declined after the nation outlawed therapeutic abortion in 1989. The percentage of women dying during childbirth is lower in that South American nation than the United States. Ireland, another country where abortion is illegal, also boasts one of the lowest maternal mortality rates in the world.”

Up until recently it was assumed that motherhood was simply an untouchable and unassailable good. But today in our toxic culture we have even managed to turn motherhood into something to be rejected and distained. Of course this has been a long standing component of the feminist movement. Consider just a few quotes from the sisterhood on this denigration of mothers and motherhood:

The home of a suburban housewife is “in reality a comfortable concentration camp.” -Betty Friedan

“The heart of woman’s oppression is her childbearing and childrearing roles.” -Shulamith Firestone

“No woman should be authorised to stay at home and raise her children. Society should be totally different. Women should not have the choice, precisely because if there is such a choice, too many women will make that one.” – Simone de Beauvoir

“The care of the young is infinitely better left to trained professionals rather than to harried amateurs with little time nor taste for the education of young minds.” – Kate Millet

“A variety of ways have been suggested for reducing [women’s] desire for babies. One commonly suggested proposal to achieve this goal is greater encouragement of labor-force participation by women. . . . [Perhaps girls could] be given an electric shock whenever they see a picture of an adorable baby until the very thought of motherhood becomes anathema to them. . .” -Jesse Bernard

“In order to raise children with equality, we must take them away from families and communally raise them.” – Mary Jo Bane

“Unless women have, from the moment of birth, socialization for, expectations of, and preparation for a viable significant alternative to motherhood . . . women will continue to want and reproduce too many children.” -Wilma Scott Heide, former chairman of the board of directors, National Organisation of Women

And it is not just the radical fems who are pushing this anti-motherhood nonsense. For years now most of our political parties have bought the line that the only good woman is a career woman, and everything should be done to subsidise women in the paid workplace while penalising women who choose to stay home and raise and rear children.

So this latest outburst from our trendy celeb set is just more of the same. We have been dumping on mothers for decades now. Given that motherhood has now become taboo, I guess that leaves only apple pie. But I am sure an Anti-Apple Pie Day will soon enough be called for by the radicals.

  1. Absolutely speechless. I have noticed recently that the government seems to want all adults in the workforce or vocational training.

  2. Dear Bill, I have just seen a wonderful YouTube video about the 9 months of an unborn child inside its mother womb. It is accompanied by some classical Church music by Vivaldi. People who treat unborn children with scorn are treating God’s creation with scorn.

  3. Even those who should know better choose to buy into this. Mr Abbott is very proud of his proposed maternity package.
    It rewards working mothers and punishes at home mums.
    Annette Williams

  4. In Romans 1 where Paul talks about those who reject God, one of the things that he mentioned is a term in the KJV of “without natural affection” from the Greek word “astrogus”, which literally means “without family love”. Unfortunately it shows up in abortion.
    Ian Nairn

  5. Sadly this is far too expected and I am unshocked by these attacks.

    Thanks Bill for the heads up. Shall pass it onto my friends so we can begin to counteract this front in the war.

    We can and should be grateful that God only gave us about 603 laws, of which not all we need to follow, IE; temple sacrifice (which takes up a whole heap of laws). This gives satan only limited fronts he can attack us on, thus as we know beforehand what he will attack, and where his weaknesses are, we can save at least a few people for God. The ones who have ears to hear, and eyes to see with.

  6. It had to come Bill, the deconstruction of the feminine, masculine and family began with the contraceptive mentality beginning as early as 1930 at the Lambeth Conference, slowly leading to the “pill” slowly leading to rampant sexuality, and abortions in holocaust proportions.
    To abort a child is to say NO to God to her feminine “Genius” or design as Pope John Paul II called it, and now its the next step to even remove the idea of motherhood and fatherhood. Following this will be the “post birth abortions” (which have had the waters tested recently)
    Remember this thought was aired recently. Testing waters.
    the book 1984 and all those science fiction books about life being manipulated don’t seems so off now do they.
    Anne Lastman

  7. That quote from Jessy Bernard was straight from “Brave New World.” I wonder if she agrees with the thrust of the book.
    Re Abbot, I don’t think our federal opposition is an opposition any more, it is touched with just a slightly different shade of pink and red. Maybe they believe the myth of “Australians support ssm” and other lies and getting into government is more important than standing on the principles of the One who makes our lives and government possible. In the end they and us will pay.
    It is worrying though how these people use the fact that there is something wrong with the world to try and give us a solution of death rather than life.

  8. In my house, Mother’s Day is every day with the 2nd Sunday in May being a very special day.

    One can only feel sorry for the radical feminists whom you have quoted Bill. Something very bad has happened to them and in their despair they promote despair as a lifestyle for all women.

    Russia, who were all for abortion, mothers in the workforce and any children who survived and were born went into childcare, now realise the grave error it made and are trying to re educate women into having babies and raising their own children with payments from the government. So far they are not having too much luck.

    Sadly Russian women and women world wide have been brain washed by these sad and misguided radical feminists.

    We need to storm Tony Abbott with letters telling him his policy on Maternity leave discriminates against mothers who make huge sacrifices to raise their own children. Unless we confront him, how will he ever know that what he is proposing is unacceptable.

  9. Dear Bill

    The attack on Motherhood is a shocker; and no doubt an attack on humanity for becoming ‘too manny’.

    It doesn’t seem to matter how many animals there are on the planet.

    I want to touch on Ursula’s comment on Tony Abbott.

    Firstly he is subject to vitriolic attack because he is so effective in dealing with the disaster that is this Federal Government.

    And importantly, because he has managed to hold the Liberals to the importance of Marriage between one man and one woman, in spite of opposition.

    Pat Healy

  10. This is just pathetic, what else can you say about it? I know I am a Christian but I have to confess that I have nothing but utter contempt for those feminists and their demonically twisted philosophy!
    Steve Davis

  11. Stats, please.

    They claim in the video that there are 1000 maternal deaths a day. Is that world-wide, or USA?

    And how many safe live births are there daily on the same basis?

    And so what proportion of all pregnancies are they REALLY talking about? And is their proposal the only solution?

    John Angelico

  12. Ever since I made that comment about the federal opposition, I had been wanting to modify it, it was not meant to be an attack on Tony Abbott, I very much respect the stand he takes, but it was more a combination of disappointments about the recently elected Liberal State governments with the I thought weak budget response Tony Abbott gave, though I must confess I made the mistake of being informed about that by the ABC.
    I just read “Catherine’s gift”, the second book about the fistula hospital started by 2 Australian doctors in Addis Abiba. Almost all the fistulas are a result of unassisted labour that ended with a dead baby. To me that suggests that the mortality rate of mothers is far less than that of babies and both could be reduced through better obstetric care, definitely not by abortion.

  13. As a stay home mother of 4 who had no real qualifications when I had them, I can honestly say that I have wonderful kids! Even my 3 teenagers! My friends agree. They are all different and unique, but still created in God’s image. I would not have given them up for anything and I did hemorrhage with all of them – scared my doctor with the first! No one can tell me that an institution could have raised them better or that my life would be more fulfilled without them! We are a family and it is what God intended! I am blessed!!
    Theresa Moyes

  14. Anti-motherhood group, how hurt are these people? We should be uplifting mothers way more than we do now, if any group deserves respect generally, it`s Mothers.
    And full-time mothers are the ones who are due most respect, recognition and encouragement. What would we be like if we were brought up in incubators, long day care and communal children compounds. Being a mother is a choice, a noble one at that, being a part-time mother is almost as noble, if they haven`t got a choice. What message are we sending our children if we make out mothering or fathering is a drop out choice for losers?
