If abortion were truly about women's health or a women's reproductive rights then where is N.O.W.? Why aren't they protesting outside the clinic? Why isn't Planned Parenthood demanding better government oversight to protect these women? Why isn't the main stream media camped out in the court room shedding light on this national travesty?
Don't hold your breath. They aren't coming. They aren't speaking out. They aren't going to lift a figure to change a thing.
Many on the Left, where abortion is a central plank in their political platform, attempt to calm their detractors by saying abortion should be "legal, safe, and rare" as if they are as opposed to abortion as anyone else. But can anyone name one piece of legislation they have ever promoted, let alone passed, that is aimed at making abortion rarer? Of course not.
If safety really were a concern then the pro-abortion lobby would be demanding more regulation and oversight, two things they are so found of using on everything else from banking fees to big sodas. But they oppose any regulation on abortion. And that is the point. Shouldn’t we be suspicious of a group that wants to put limits on just about everything we do except put limits on our access to an abortion.
The liberal media claims they aren't bias when it comes to reporting negative abortion stories like the Gosnell trial but an empty press box and weeks of silence tells a different tale. If Gosnell had been shot by a pro-life supporter does any doubt the press orgy that would ensue?
And what about the president?
Sandy Hook - we must have gun control legislation for the sake of the children and so nothing like this every happens again.
Gosnell Murders - no comment.
Note: I have briefly written on the issue of abortion here and here. I recommend you read the Report of the Grand Jury.
