The late, great Leonard Cohen wrote a song about the power of women to seduce men.
Now I’ve heard there was a secret chord
That David played, and it pleased the Lord
But you don’t really care for music, do ya?
It goes like this, the fourth, the fifth
The minor fall, the major lift
The baffled king composing “Hallelujah”
Your faith was strong but you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty in the moonlight overthrew ya
She tied you to a kitchen chair
She broke your throne, and she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah
To me, the lyrics are an ode to womanhood; to the extraordinary power of being a woman. The lyrics refer to a composite man who represents two great Jewish men; King David, who slew Goliath, and Sampson whose great strength remained as long as his hair was not shorn. This man on the roof wanted proof that he could resist a beautiful woman. But her beauty was irresistible, her siren call too great to ignore. He could not help himself. She was in charge. She broke him. She drew his breath away and he praised God.
Throughout history, before there were books, or sex education in school or pornography, the male of the species knew the female was and is the gatekeeper. Even the birds know this. When was the last time you saw a colourful female bird and a “Plain Jane” male bird? Never!
Women, through time, have had this enormous power to decide who will live and who will die. A great responsibility. The blessing and the curse. For it is woman who decides whose genes will carry on from the past to the future, for she is the carrier of creation and men have always known that, consciously or subconsciously. Men need permission from women to pass on their genes. Sadly, there are men who will not grant the woman her right to choose.
And then came FEMINISM.
I am woman hear me roar! As I flip burgers at McDonald’s, check out your items at the till in Walmart, push boxes around for Amazon or make widgets.
Today, being a woman has nothing to do with procreation, with creating life. Oh no! It has to do with the right to abort! What could be more important than that?
The Supreme Court ruled on Roe Versus Wade and the feminists went crazy! I haven’t seen protests like this since the Summer of Love 2022 when riots, I mean peaceful protests, took place around America – because of the murder of George Floyd. The murder of one man by police. How dare they? Yet these same people are screaming for the right of women to kill the unborn; not just abort in the first 6 weeks, or even the first trimester – 12 weeks, but right up to BIRTH! And how dare anyone get in the way! Those Supreme Court Justices! Well, these feminists will teach them a lesson. ShutDownDC offered $50 to people who harass any of the Justices who voted in the majority to overturn Roe v. Wade.
Abortion is such an important right – hey lets’ not talk about responsibilities – that the Biden government is saying nothing about this harassment. It’s all about FREEDOM to end pregnancies. This is the greatest threat to America – the failure to not only permit, but condone the ending of a life in utero.
I love this photo. Calls to regulate the penis. A woman can any time – it’s called, I said “No” and here; put on this condom!
This is the sword upon which women are prepared to fall. That a fetus is nothing more than an ingrown toe nail or a tumour! We are celebrating abortion and dehumanizing our most vulnerable in order to kill them. Why the cult of death?
Just to ensure the right to abort will not be prevented, the Biden administration will “consider” strengthening protections for doctors performing abortions in medical emergencies by updating the Emergency Medical Treatment and Labor Act, and plan to stand up another interagency task force that includes the Attorney General.
They want him to set up abortion tents on federal lands, offer taxpayer funded travel vouchers and other financial support for people getting abortions in other states, and to drop all limits on the abortion pill that protect women’s health and safety and to make it easier to buy abortion drugs from other countries.
They will allow the use of mifepristone is used to abort unborn babies up to 10 weeks of pregnancy. It blocks the hormone progesterone and basically starves the baby to death. For decades, the FDA required that abortionists provide the drug in-person after a medical examination because of its high risks.
In December, however, the Biden administration got rid of the in-person requirement and began allowing the drug to be sold through the mail. Now, women – or their abusers – can buy the abortion drug online without ever seeing or even talking to a doctor.
(But heaven help you if you want ivermectin to save your life if you contract Covid!)
If this remains the zeitgeist, the collective attitude, in America, if having babies, a family, is frowned upon in order to free a woman to go to work, then the extraordinary culture that was once America will fall, fall, fall, into the abyss.
I am woman hear me roar! Hallelujah!
From the Ethics of the Fathers: “Rabbi Tarfon used to say, it is not incumbent upon you to complete the task, but you are not exempt from undertaking it.”
