I realize I could say this multiple times each day, every day but…you can’t make this stuff up. No one would believe you, unless they not only drank the Kool-Aid, they also grew the ingredients and brewed them in a vat of pro-abortion conspiracy talk.
Which is another way of saying that many leading pro-abortion organizations and scribes live in an alternative universe from the one you and I and the overwhelming majority of the American people call home. See if you agree that the following makes my point.
Pro-life former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush took a tour yesterday of the Carolina Pregnancy Center in Spartanburg. South Carolina. The local ABC affiliate correctly described the CPC as a pro-life “crisis center for pregnant women in need and looking for options.”
Yes, exactly. Their “clientele” is women and girls who are looking for a life-affirming alternative to abortion.
Bush told some folks at the CPC
“Whether it’s dealing with end of life issues or children that are unborn or the developmentally disabled, I think that we, as a society, should be compassionate and loving, and make sure that we always put life first.”
In response the pro-abortion Commentariat and NARAL Pro-Choice America worked itself into a full lather. The latter trotted out Mitchell Stille, its token male, his knickers in a knot, to tell us that he found what the CPC said “offensive.”
Solution? Cut off any and all money to pro-abortion organizations. Sorry, I meant to write cut off any and all money to pro-life CPCs. Why?
Because, according to Stille, they lie, cheat, dissemble, and use real sugar in their coffee.
Of course, I shouldn’t make light of this. The goal of the Abortion Industry is to attain (by hook or by crook) a total, I mean absolute, monopoly. In the ideal pro-abortion world, no one other than those who profit off of dead babies should be allowed to talk to women in crisis.
And they are not shy about taking CPCs to court, in the process drying up their already meager resources and making life miserable. Nice folks.
In seeking one absolute monopoly, they already assure us they have a monopoly on truth. Every study that shows there is a negative aftermath to abortion– whether physical, emotional, psychological, or relational– is “junk science.”
Every commonsensical conclusion–for example, that cutting around in the area of a woman’s reproductive organs can potentially be risky business, or that undergoing an abortion increases the likelihood a woman’s subsequent pregnancies will not go full-term–is waved aside.
That Stille should talk about CPCs “bullying” women…well, who has all the money, the connections, the banks of attorneys, and pliant legislative bodies? NARAL and its ilk, or CPCs? Exactly who is bullying whom?
Of course the irony is that this example of pro-abortion chest-thumping comes as the leader of the pack–Planned Parenthood–is trying to figure out how to respond to the stomach-turning revelations of two undercover videos filmed by the Center for Medical Progress.
In the weeks and months to come, we’ll find out who is telling the truth and who wouldn’t know truth if it smacked them in the face. I’ll put my money on the pro-lifers.
