Be careful of what you wish for, you just may get it. According to Wall Street Journal blogger Steven Waldman, the Democrats have been wanting a fired-up religious left for quite a while. Well, now that one is emerging, it seems they might not like what’s happening as a result.
In a recent post by Waldman, it appears Mr. Tony Campolo (a rather loud and obnoxious left-wing evangelist) happens to be sitting on the Democrat’s platform committee. He and another left-wing evangelical (Jim Wallis) are pretty adamant about making a stink to get the wording changed in the Dem’s platform to seek an reduction in abortions.
The now famous phrase “a woman’s right to choose” was created in the effort to get abortion laws passed — Dr. Bernard Nathanson, one of the founders of NARAL, says as they were brainstorming catch-phrases to spin off to the media, they were laughing at the “woman’s right to choose.” But it stuck. This is, after all, America, where “Freedom of Choice” is a watchword.
However, eventually Nathanson came to realize that all the abortions he was performing was the taking of a human life. Strangely, even women I know who advocate legal abortions acknowledge that it’s MURDER. But they still advocate it because of the “10,000 women who died each year from illegal abortions.”
Problem: Nathanson confessed they lied their asses off to the media: That in 1972, only 39 women died in this country from illegal abortions. But NARAL was putting out false info in their press releases that 10,000 women had died from illegal abortions. They knew the media would suck it up. And they did.
Puffery. Lies. Deceptions. Nobody bothered to check the facts. And they still don’t. They just want to preserve the right to MURDER innocent babies based on lies published by NARAL (follow the money, folks – the abortion industry generates over $500,000,000 in business each year) and spun out to the ears of the Jane Q. Public by a lazy media who would not verify NARAL’s numbers.
You want choice? The choice happens when a couple chooses to have sex. That’s the choice.
Any other choice is this: “Do I give this baby the gift of seeing the light of day, or do I MURDER it?”
