I have long-held that the term pro-choice is BS, a concocted phrase meant to paint abortion rights supporters as champions of choice, and for the right of women to control their bodies. Pro-choice fits in nicely with other pro-abortion, yes, you heard me, catch phrases like “my body my choice”. Yes, right, because the Left are big fans of women or anyone else controlling their own bodies. Sure they are, that is why thy so strongly support universal health care where ultimately the government decides who gets care and what sort of care they get. And pro-choice? Try to think of anything besides killing an unborn baby the Left wants us to have any type of choice in? Owning guns? No. Whether or not to join a union? No. How about school choice? Again no. How about a woman seeing an ultrasound BEFORE having an abortion? NOPE! Keeping more of our money so we can choose how to spend it? Hell no! How about Blacks, Hispanics, Homosexuals, or women getting to choose which political party they support without being personally attacked? Yeah, right! The Left is about as anti-choice as it gets. But, the Left is all about saying one thing, while doing the complete opposite, in short, they are liars, they have to be. When most people see what Leftism really is, they run like Hell away from it.
Every now and again though, the Left or at least individual members of the Left allow the ask to slip. They let the truth emerge. Over at Salon, I read it so you don’t have to, Mary Elizabeth Williams does not just let her pro-choice mask slip, she rips it off with infanticidal glee.
Yet I know that throughout my own pregnancies, I never wavered for a moment in the belief that I was carrying a human life inside of me. I believe that’s what a fetus is: a human life. And that doesn’t make me one iota less solidly pro-choice.
There we are, she KNOWS, as most pro-
choice abortion supporters KNOW what abortion is, How could any person not know. Medical science has proven that for years, yet it is hard to find many abortion advocates who will admit that they accept this science. they know the science is real, they just want to convince you it is not settled science. This is why they almost exclusively use emotionalistic arguments about a woman’s body, and choice, and why they scream things like “keep the government out of my uterus”! Those are emotionally charged words. And as it is with the gun control debate emotionally overloaded Americans are more easily swayed into buying the lies the Left pedals. But Williams is not playing the lying game any more. She is loud, proud and screaming at the top of her lungs that all people are not equal
Here’s the complicated reality in which we live: All life is not equal. That’s a difficult thing for liberals like me to talk about, lest we wind up looking like death-panel-loving, kill-your-grandma-and-your-precious-baby storm troopers. Yet a fetus can be a human life without having the same rights as the woman in whose body it resides. She’s the boss. Her life and what is right for her circumstances and her health should automatically trump the rights of the non-autonomous entity inside of her. Always.
See, the great lie the Left spews daily is that they believe in equality. And, I suppose they do, as long as we realize they mean that all people are equal, but some are more equal than others. How very Orwellian of them. And understand this, by saying that all human life is NOT equal Williams lays bare the ugly truth about the Left. They loath individualism, they loathe assigning individuals with unalienable rights. Your rights, according to the Left last only so long as the “common good” does not require you to lose them.How very totalitarian of them. Think me throwing the term totalitarian in is too much? Ask yourself this. Who always suffers the most under any type of totalitarian regime? The inconvenient do, and who is seen as an inconvenience by the Left? Who is considered a drain on the Collective? Clearly the unborn child is just too inconvenient to possess the same rights as others. I wonder what other groups Williams would deem as unworthy of equality?
Go read all of this piece. the cold-heartedness of this evil woman sickens me, and likely will you as well, but, we need to see what depths of depravity the Left is willing to sink to. Here is one more small glimpse into the demented mind of “pro-choice”
I can say anecdotally that I’m a mom who loved the lives she incubated from the moment she peed on those sticks, and is also now well over 40 and in an experimental drug trial. If by some random fluke I learned today I was pregnant, you bet your ass I’d have an abortion. I’d have the World’s Greatest Abortion.
My belief that life begins at conception is mine to cling to. And if you believe that it begins at birth, or somewhere around the second trimester, or when the kid finally goes to college, that’s a conversation we can have, one that I hope would be respectful and empathetic and fearless. We can’t have it if those of us who believe that human life exists in utero are afraid we’re somehow going to flub it for the cause. In an Op-Ed on “Why I’m Pro-Choice” in the Michigan Daily this week, Emma Maniere stated, quite perfectly, that “Some argue that abortion takes lives, but I know that abortion saves lives, too.” She understands that it saves lives not just in the most medically literal way, but in the roads that women who have choice then get to go down, in the possibilities for them and for their families. And I would put the life of a mother over the life of a fetus every single time — even if I still need to acknowledge my conviction that the fetus is indeed a life. A life worth sacrificing.
Again, that is the face of Leftism, laid bare.
