Guest Post: Fargo Businesses Hold Pro-Abortion Fundraiser

abortionjpeg

While most North Dakotans were finally enjoying some summer weather and precious time with family and friends, the Red River Abortion Facility held a fundraiser in downtown Fargo.

A fundraiser for abortion? Really? Who on earth would support a fundraiser for a business that kills children and hurts women?

Apparently some local businesses did. After the horrid revelations of the Gosnell trial in Philadelphia, it is stunning to see the list of local North Dakota businesses (list below) actually donating monies to support an industry that defies life itself.

I would suggest that all of us take a long look at the list below and memorize it so that we make sure we do not support any of these businesses who support aborting precious unborn children with no restrictions.

There are a few interesting abortion partners on this list including liquor store “Happy Harry’s”. Not surprising that the owner of this successful business supports abortion as he has stated so before, but to come out and publicly raise money to kill unborn babies seems to me an unwise business decision.

I suggest consumers get their Miller Light or Merlot somewhere else this summer and make Happy Harry a bit unhappy for a while. It is time to make our pro-life convictions real, not just philosophical.

    Except when people try to boycott Chick-fil-a over gay marriage. Then they are being whiny and stupid AND anti-business!!!

    But these businesses taking part in a fundraiser? Public shamin’ time!

    Oh well, since I’ve been commanded where I can shop by the authors on this website I guess I’ll spend my summer trying to find where ‘Mezzalina’ because apparently they can’t be bothered to spell the businesses they are trying to destroy correctly.

    • resa

      And its ok to try to destroy Chik fil a , where they were doing NOTHING illegal or Immoral, just serving the best chicken and doing a great job of it. I am free to frequent the businesses I choose, based on what I perceive about them, and no one was telling anyone not to go to these places. The choice is mine. I choose not to support a business that supports abortion. Abortion is murder and cruel and why on God’s earth would anyone want to do it, that is beyond me. This country needs to grow up and be responsible, and take responsibility for their sex lives, then you will see fewer abortions and a better society.

  • headward

    donations? I wonder if there was a rubber stamped 503(c) from the IRS.

  • Dakotacyr

    I’m going to make sure that I support these businesses. And I’m going to tell all my friends to support these business as well. I trust my daughters with their health care decisions. I beleive that no one should tell women what decisions they make. It’s between them, their doctors and their God.

    • NDJimmy

      If your friend Casey told you she was going to kill her three-year-old daughter Caylee, would you tell her what decision to make? What if the three-year-old Caylee was the product of rape or incest? Should the law tell Casey it’s not okay to kill a three year old? Pro lifers believe the unborn are people with a right to life. Pro choicers think it’s a parasite unless mom coos at the ultrasound and declares the child, “wanted”.

      • Dakotacyr

        What are you talking about?

        • two_amber_lamps

          Uh, I think it’s pretty clear EXACTLY what NDJimmy is referring to. It’s merely leftists, useful idiots and those who intentionally bury their own apprehensions regarding murder who live in a perpetual state of cognitive dissonance that have difficulty divining the hypocrisy of their position.

          Murder, it is what it is.

      You can leave “their doctors” out of this equation and the Supremes come judgement day…no mercy, unless they repent.

  • sbark

    and then there is this jem from Chelsea Clinton………

    New York, NY (CFAM) — From the stage at the recent Women Deliver conference, former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s daughter Chelsea revealed that her much-admired maternal grandmother was the child of unwed teenage parents who “did not have access to services that are so crucial that Planned Parenthood helps provide.”

    Chelsea’s grandmother was born of an unintended pregnancy. And new research shows that her family is not alone in treasuring a person who – if Planned Parenthood had been successful – would not have been born.

    …….so according to her “wishes” for her grandmother—there would’ve been no Hillary and thus no Chealsea……….if only society could’ve been so lucky???

  • Ratbite

    This Fargoan will be boycottying all the businesses that support the murder of unborn babies. I’ll never darken Happy harry’s doors again except to tell them I won’t be back & why!!!

    “I would suggest that all of us take a long look at the list below and memorize it so that we make sure we do not support any of these businesses who support aborting precious unborn children with no restrictions.”

    Whatever one’s feeling on abortion, one cannot conclude that the named businesses support abortion with no restrictions based only on the fact that they financially supported a women’s clinic. That’s a bit hyperbolic.

    • http://sayanythingblog.com Rob

      Oh please, it’s an abortion clinic. People aren’t going there to get their cholesterol checked.

      • Mel

        It is the only abortion provider in ND. Perhaps some of these businesses believe abortion should be available, say, in certain cases where a woman’s health or life is in danger, or where the baby will die anyway. It’s a huge leap to say they support “aborting precious unborn children with no restrictions”, particularly with no sources.

        • http://sayanythingblog.com Rob

          But that’s the status quo for the clinic. Abortion with almost no restrictions.

          Those businesses are free to support that, and others are free to boycott them because of it.

          • Dakotacyr

            What does “almost no restrictions” mean?

          • http://sayanythingblog.com Rob

            Exactly what it means. Abortion on demand is the status quo.

        • kevindf

          “in certain cases where a woman’s health or life is in danger, or where the baby will die anyway.”
          That’s standard medical care.

  • kevindf

    Almost all the patrons of these businesses are stoners and slackers.

  • two_amber_lamps

    Of course they’re your favorite businesses…

    Always ironic when liberal fascists level the “fascism” label on others….

  • fargonite

    I find it interesting the list of stores, how did she get the list, did she go to the fundraiser herself?? Did she go door to door to these businesses and actually talk to them and verify before posting, that is a good sign of a reporter before posting, just maybe somebody else bought gift certificates or product from the businesses for the auction?? So before making your choice to boycott, talk to the owners first, no managers or employees, go straight to the top and find out there stance, first!

    • whowon

      most fundraisers list the businesses supporting it, standard practice.

  • Dallas

    I get to Fargo a couple of times a month. I made notes and will do as much business as possible at the businesses who helped with the fund raiser.
    I’ve also stopped doing business with businesses that advertise on Rush or the Hennan show.

  • PK

    Do you even know what “fascist”, or fascism is? Janne is promoting free market capitalism. You saying that Janne is ” a good reason for abortion to remain safe and legal.”, is an anti-human statement that acknowledges that abortion is murder. Thanks for being so honest and showing the mindset of many pro-”choice” heathens. Enjoy your hatred of your fellow man, but don’t forget to repent before your dance is over. You’re not going to enjoy the hatred of the Lord on That Day. He’ll do the same to you as what you’re advocating for. DEATH.

  • http://sayanythingblog.com Rob

    The RRWC listed it, but Janne tells me it has since been taken down.

  • Yahweh

    Great list. I’ll be sure to spend even more money at these businesses. Maybe you should make another list; I’d like a list of businesses to avoid, for example, ones run by Catholics or Evangelicals, or ones which donate to religious organizations.

    • http://sayanythingblog.com Rob

      No, I’m guessing you probably won’t spend money at these organizations.
      There’s a reason most businesses avoid controversial politics and it is because it costs much more business than it gains.

      • Yahweh

        Yeah, I do tend to assume that businesses who take political stands are run by morons. Why jeopardize market share? I wouldn’t do it if I were running a business. However, I like Zandbroz. I like the HoDo. I like Happy Harry’s, the Fargo Theatre, and Pinch and Pour. If I were to find out that they were conservatively aligned, I would not frequent them anymore. I frequent them because, first of all, I like them, and second of all, because I like their political alignment. So, I assure you, they will continue to get my business. I’ll even go out of my way to buy from them if I can.

        • http://sayanythingblog.com Rob

          I tend to just frequent the businesses I like, regardless of their politics.
          But then I’m tolerant like that.

    • Neiman

      You and this blasphemous Ya..eh actually think it good to support businesses that are donating money and goods to fuel the fires of our national abortuary, baby killing chambers. How low has America fallen when people like you are willing to stand up, goose step behind the Democrats/Liberals and support our national fetal holocaust. It is obvious you are void of all morality and are spiritually dead, now only waiting to face final Justice before a God that said, “Thou shalt not kill (do murder).”

      Who would have thought that after WW-II, when we defeated the Nazi’s and cringed at seeing the piles of dead bodies in the concentration camps, discovering that 6 million Jews had been murdered and millions more non-Jews; that, so soon, our people, like you two, would be so absent all human decency and be crying out for more babies to die, more babies thrown on your God hating bonfires, so you may satisfy your blood lusts. Cowards all, you kill helpless, defenseless babies and through Obamacare the elderly, people that cannot fight back – you cannot even carry out your desire for mass murder with any courage, so you pick on the defenseless.

    I’m a libertarian, but my problem with abortion is that there’s no rational or scientific way you can define the child in the womb after implantation as anything other than a human life.

    And because we are not monsters, we have legal protections for human life.

  • http://sayanythingblog.com Rob

    And yes, free markets allow for a person to discriminate in where they shop.
    I’m sure Rand herself, a well-known curmudgeon, had businesses she avoided.
    You invoke her and her works, but I’m not sure you know much about her.

  • Waski_the_Squirrel

    Fargo is 2 weeks of my year thanks to one of my jobs. Happily, only one of the businesses on the list is one that has enjoyed my money. Now that I have seen this list, I won’t be going back to that business.

    I will admit that I spent $12.50 at Zandbroz. Sadly, this is one of two locations in North Dakota that sells Noodler’s ink. On a happy note, I can order the ink online or at the other store.

    My political orientation is reasonably Libertarian. I believe that this is the best way to protect my own moral, Christian conservative beliefs. Human life is one of those things which I believe government should protect.

      • Anon

        If someone is inside of your organ, using your blood and nutrients, and causing you to go through painful labor to give birth to them, you get to choose if you continue that process. A woman can decide if she wants her body to be used to create a developed infant. I may not agree with abortion but I agree with keeping it legal so women don’t try to use coat hangers or people like Gosnell to make a difficult bodily choice. And no, even while pregnant my uterus is not part of my child’s body, it is mine and I will choose who uses it and when. (I would choose to give birth but I would want to do it willingly, not to be forced to do so because I had no safe options).

      “Mind your Business” Therein lies the problem you refuse to openly admit. It’s not just ‘your business’ when another’s life is at stake. If you really had the courage of your convictions, you’d stop with the ‘mind your own business’ pleas, and start arguing against the notion that there is another human’s life at stake.

    Where is the foundation for this list? I don’t think establishments like The Historic Fargo Theatre even donate to ANYTHING. I mean it’s an independent non-profit historic landmark theatre. They probably don’t donate “monies” to ANYTHING.

    • http://sayanythingblog.com Rob

      As the link in the post indicates, all the businesses donated goods to auction for the abortion.clinic.

  • Neiman

    Can you imagine German businesses during the Nazi era openly raising money and donating goods to help keep the furnaces going at fever pitch at the many of their concentration camps? While that time was more compressed, nonetheless there is not the tiniest, fractional moral difference between the Jewish Holocaust and our national fetal holocaust, except while they killed 6 million Jews without it much bothering their collective consciences, we more civilized Americans have slaughtered something near 55 million helpless, innocent babies in our Planned Parenthood abortuary chambers and our consciences are not pricked in the slightest.

    Most of you will laugh, but 7.62 is quite right -

    And the blood of 50 million plus of Americas most innocent cry out before the Throne of the Almighty for Justice..

    This is a gross moral/spiritual sickness from a people that pretend mostly to be a Christian people, while denying the power of God to exact Justice against them for their murders of these precious children.

  • PK

    Please be logical. To someone who thinks a fertilized egg isn’t a new life, with complete, unique DNA, your comment is probably perceived as cute and clever. I personally find it uninformed. It’s about as dumb as saying that a woman’s period and male ejaculation should be a crime if life begins at conception. Yes, people from your club actually use that as an argument against life beginning at conception. Those same people will argue for a woman’s right to murder their unborn baby on Friday, then on Saturday argue to take a woman’s 2nd Amendment right to have a firearm because of the kids killed in Connecticut by a drugged out psycho. It’s no wonder why our country is going to hell. God help up.

    Just because I have my children in my profile picture does not mean that I have to be pro-life or pro-birth as you people are. I chose to have my kids but if I couldn’t care for them I am happy that I could have chosen to abort them.

  • Callie DeTar

    You people are terrible people. If you call yourself “Christians” then why don’t you act like one. Instead you are purposely hurting people for your own political agendas. I have yet to meet a single “Christian” person that is lobbying for strict abortion laws that actually lives a Christian life. Instead all of you are spreading hate, lies and discomfort. I don’t care what you say about me, the emails, phone calls, facebook posts etc but please leave the businesses out of this. They donated items to help keep a women’s clinic open that provides many services to women outside of abortions. In fact, why don’t you start targeting Sanford medical center. Their OB/GYN’s remove IUD’s in pregnant women that causes miscarriages. That’s taking of life too. This isn’t so Black and White as you “Christians” like to make it. There are too many shades of gray.

  • MillRun

    thanks for this post. i don’t live close enough to have attended the fundraiser, but i will send the clinic a financial contribution, as i’m really concerned about women, not just pretending to be by belonging to a misogynist group that uses the word ‘concerned’ but really isn’t.

  • MillRun

    are you deleting comments that you don’t agree with? how brave of you! i’ll be donating to the clinic in YOUR name, as i really am concerned about women, and not so much fetuses.

    Great job getting that list. Surprisingly (not!), most of those businesses are pretty ghetto and I wouldn’t eat/shop there anyway. I was surprised by Happy Harry’s and the HoDo. Not going to give these places a dime in the future.

    We should ALL post this list on our facebook pages.

  • Anon

    I will have to go to these businesses more often. It’s good that some places understand that women should be allowed to decide who or what uses their organs to survive. Each woman can decide for herself if she wants her body to be used to create a completed infant. I wouldn’t choose an abortion for myself but I am glad that I can give birth willingly and not be forced into it like so many people want for women. So many people on here spew hatred in God’s name and only care about an undeveloped fetus while not giving two shits about the born women carrying them. Let’s not bring women’s health back to the 1950′s.
