I suppose it only makes sense to the minds that have persuaded themselves that they speak for all women that Planned Parenthood Voters of Iowa would have the chutzpah to protest the induction Saturday of two pro-life female stalwarts– U.S. Sen. Joni Ernst and Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds– into the Iowa Women’s Hall of Fame.

“These two women being inducted into this very high honor is really offensive,” groused Rachel Lopez, spokeswoman for Planned Parenthood Voters of Iowa, according to the Des Moines Register, the state’s largest newspaper and a pipeline for pro-abortion propaganda. “They only show their support for women and girls when it suits their own agendas, and they ignore the real issues facing Iowans every day.”

This is so stupid it merits only a few words in response. Translated out of abortionspeak, Ms. Lopez is telling us that support for life is ipso fact “offensive.” That Ernst’s and Reynolds’ backing to efforts to defund Planned Parenthood–the largest abortion “provider” in the world– “fl[ies] directly in the face of the values the commission purportedly stands for.” Etc., etc. etc.

It takes nothing away from the other women inducted two days ago at a ceremony at the Valley High School Performing Arts Center to note the historic significance of Sen. Ernst–the first woman elected to Congress from Iowa—and Gov. Reynolds– Iowa’s first female governor.

I particularly like a quote KCCL TV’s Tommie Clark included in her story–“ State’s top female Republicans inducted into Iowa Women’s Hall of Fame” []:

“It is my responsibility and it is my challenge to do my best to give the historians an opportunity to write much more than, ‘She was Iowa’s first female governor,’” Reynolds said.
