The anti-Donald Trump “Women’s March” will take place in Washington, DC, the day after President-elect Trump’s January 20 inauguration. As such it will be squeezed in between the inauguration and the 44th anniversary of the grotesque Roe v. Wade decision.
The annual March for Life itself will take place the following Friday, January 27. Pro-life Kellyanne Conway, who will serve as counselor to President Trump, will address the massive crowd.
Here are a few thoughts beyond the obvious: that no many how few or how many show up in our nation’s capital, the “Women’s March” will receive many times over the attention the March for Life will garner, even if this rally of grassroots pro-lifers attracts well over 100,000 people. The Establishment Media is an adjunct to the Abortion Movement and will bend, twist, fold, and mutilate its coverage to promote the pro-death set.
What else? You don’t have to read between the lines to realize components of the Women’s March are at war with each other. The prize? Which subcategory of people can claim the mantle of the most victimized. That the most victimized of all are millions of unborn children is, of course, ignored.
And “women” does not include pro-life women, as Kate Yoder of Newsbusters pointed out in her excellent post. Until Thursday, Women’s March organizers had been kind of fuzzy about the specifics of what it stood for (beside hatred of Trump). As Yoder wrote,
until Thursday, the organizers kept any specific mission under wraps. Sure, to apply as a march partner, organizations were required to declare their “primary area of focus,” with options like “reproductive justice.” Sure, the march boasted the aid of abortion organizations Planned Parenthood and NARAL from the start. But the website also claimed, “we join in diversity” by “defending the most marginalized among us is defending all of us.”
That vagueness is no more. On Thursday, the march quietly released a “unity principles” document clarifying that “diversity” doesn’t include diversity of thought and that “defending the most marginalized” doesn’t include the unborn.
Under “Reproductive Freedom,” the platform says, “We do not accept any federal, state or local rollbacks, cuts or restrictions on our ability to access quality reproductive healthcare services.”
“This means open access to safe, legal, affordable abortion and birth control for all people, regardless of income, location or education. We understand that we can only have reproductive justice when reproductive health care is accessible to all people regardless of income, location or education.”
This is a shot at the Hyde Amendment which is credited with saving up to two million lives.
And (surprise, surprise) Planned Parenthood helped author the position. Among others, the document listed Kelley Robinson, Planned Parenthood’s Deputy National Organizing Director, as a “contributor.”
