Happy Roe v Wade!

by Susan Olsen

In order to properly celebrate the 40th Anniversary of Roe v Wade, I offer the following:

Below are famous genocides of the 20th century.  The table ranks them in order of the estimated number of human beings slaughtered and tells us the times we would need to commit those same genocides again in order to match the aggregate slaughter of unborn children racked up by mothers and doctors since Roe V Wade was decided in 1973.

Fun fact:  You’d have to murder every person currently living New Hampshire more than 41 times to match R v W.

    RvW good or bad ??
    Question; Is there a study or statistics on how many abortions would there have been with out RvW?. Also how many mothers would have died without RvW ?.

    • Susan

      Mr. Graham, I am unaware of any such statistical analyses; however, regardless of the number, I’m pretty sure 100 percent of the babies would have died.

  • Dont teabag me

    You are a disgusting piece of filth. As somebody who is the grandchild of holocaust survivors, and has family who died, you are cheapening there suffering.

    • granitegrok

      For simply putting up statistics of actual events? Really?

      And by the way, putting up stats, in no way, cheapens anything. If anything, it brings to light the inhuman ways that others are willing to treat those they believe to be less than themselves; Man’s inhumanity to man. This is something that should be highlighted more often, not less. I will point out that Susan left out the millions that died as a result of Communist China’s “Long March” under Mao Tse-Tung.

      I also will state this – although the Holocaust should never, ever be repeated, please note that claiming your heritage due to it gives you no more moral ground here at the ‘Grok than anyone else. Contrary to what the Left is always trying to do, create more special victim classes, we do not see YOU as a victim.


    CENSORED YET AGAIN!!! You guys really are PRAVDA! I made at least two comments on this thread yesterday. I know ’cause I saw ’em. Now they’ve “magically” disappeared. Do you think you’re chivalrous by trying to protect Suze? Can’t Suze defend herself as a conservative gal?
















    Chivalry ain’t dead on the Grok. They always come to the rescue of a damsel in distress, right Suze?

      Distress? You flatter yourself.

    More statistics: The latest one out is that among teenage girls who have children, 1 in 5 has a second pregnancy before reaching age 20. 2 out of 5 children born in America are born out of wedlock. For black women this is now 7 of 10 children born out of wedlock. We are reaching all time unbalanced ratios for birth rates among the underclass versus the traditional nuclear American Family where there was a wage earner or two that worked to put a roof over that family and put food on their table. We now have teen pregnancy tribute stars like Bristol Palin creating a whole new metric for creating the self fulfilling prophecy that having “illegitimate” children that the producers in our society must pay to support is a a new paradigm. TV series like 16 and pregnant, etc creating the sensibility that this is all normal and something that will enrich your life. When the children get to school many of these women who were abject failures academically themselves take suggestions for social and educational enrichment from guidance counselors as personal attacks on themselves. Our society expects to be able to dump these children with weak early childhood enrichment and socialization experiences on our schools and then have the educators weave this straw into gold. The 47% are growing and over whelming us. Your right to life agendas are working! We are heading deeper into the grip of mob rule and socialism. The burgeoning underclass are more determined than ever to vote themselves largess. Frank Guinta campaigning NOT to include anyone over 55 in shared sacrifice on entitlements, after voting for debt ceiling increases to fund that. That is pay no attention to the socialist insiders pandering for votes with more spending in the decline of the Republican Party and the loss of our Republic. Jeb Bradley still bragging about pension reform claiming he and the last legislature fixed what he cited as “A 5 billion” underfunding. Getting that down to $4.8 billion 2 years later by the only actual reform that was the elimination of COLAs. Before Belknap county can float out that +/-3% $40MM bond offering they will have to report in the offering prospectus the other liabilities to their revenues sources the unfunded liabilities of their pension obligations. This may increase the rate they need to pay to 3.5%. So there is some hope that the pension reform of two years ago that left intact the 7.75% AARR (anticipated actuarial Rate of Return) the NHRS trust fund will need to achieve to get to a 80% funded status by 2027 will have an infinitesimally small increase towards the possibility that that AARR will be made. FINALLY the voters got some undiluted representation at the County Convention. Finally some people who ARE Bone-fide Republicans have stood up against the unsustainable! But they eventually will be voted out by the burgeoning underclass.

    Clearly your numbers on the Nazi holocaust are grossly erroneous. Not all of the 20 million Russians that died in the Great War were victims of Stalin. The death of a person is indeed a sad event the death of millions is just a statistic.
