As they have done in the past, we are starting to see the abortion lobby use the bad economy to justify the slaughter of the unborn. In this process, one of their favorite tactics is to suggest that pro-lifers should concentrate on helping people who are “already here.”
Of course, this ignores the fact that the unborn are “already here.” After all, if that were not the case there would be nothing in a pregnant woman’s uterus to abort. But we cannot allow mere facts like that to get in the way, so on a national news show the other night, there it was again. A defender of the death culture saying that if those of us in the pro-life movement really cared about our fellow man, we would stop fretting over abortion and do something about homelessness, child abuse, hunger, global warming, health care and all the rest. And naturally, the lunacy of this argument was completely lost on the dim-witted reporter who was conducting the interview. In fact, I got the queasy feeling that it actually made sense to her.
But here’s my question. There is an organization called The Innocence Project that represents prison inmates who claim they were falsely convicted. It is a truly noble effort and there have been numerous instances in which they were able to prove that people have rotted in prisons for decades for crimes they did not commit. In fact, there have even been cases where they proved the innocence of people who were sitting on death row awaiting execution.
What I want to know is this: when these organizations are trying to save the lives of condemned prisoners who may be innocent, should they be told to butt out unless they are doing something about all of the world’s other social ills? Think about it. As moronic as that sounds, it is precisely what the pro-choice mob says about abortion. Their position is that until those of us in the pro-life movement can provide solutions to all the problems that an unborn little girl might face in her life, then we have no right to keep them from killing her. The frightening part of this is, there are people running loose in American society who are actually stupid enough to buy into this nonsense.
Look, the reality is that the abortion lobby has no interest in solving social problems. For them, these issues are nothing more and nothing less than a diversion. Since day one, they have known that abortion cannot defend abortion on its own merits because it has no merits. So the core strategy behind every argument these people make – with no exceptions – has always been to deflect attention somewhere else.
In this case, the diversion just happens to be the cynical exploitation of unfortunate people in desperate situations. It sounds kind of nasty, but such is life for those trying to defend a holocaust.
