From Huw Raphael
Not only are the left pro-baby murder; they’re hypocrites about free speech
‘Censorship is un-American’ (true) but good old Anglo-American anti-Catholicism lives on in a new, post-Protestant form. Put another way, Puritan New England and profligate modern San Francisco are, believe it or not, sequentially connected! Calvinism eventually, inevitably shatters into Unitarianism as Archbishop Robert Morse says. (The common thread is private judgement.)
"They're calling for the overturn of Roe vs. Wade, which will lead to the slaughter of women,'' said Elizabeth Creely of the Bay Area Coalition for Our Reproductive Rights, referring to fears of unsafe, back-alley abortions if the procedure were illegal. "The Catholic Church is very strong here and is working hard to erode reproductive rights.
Apparently Mr Bush’s minders aren’t the only ones who have problems telling the truth. Before 1973 there was no ‘slaughter of women’; we don’t all have short collective memories, Ms Creely. Medically necessary abortions — a microscopic number of abortions done today — were legal and are allowed by the church. ‘Reproductive rights’ is merely cant for childish irresponsibility for one’s actions (pig heaven for men who abuse women as Bud Macfarlane once put it), not what 19th-century workers for women’s rights wanted! She’s given her game away: numerically most abortions aren’t done for desperate poor women — such heartbroken people don’t natter about ‘reproductive rights’ — but rather well-off ones for convenience.
