For good reason, the American people are becoming more and more concerned with the rapidly expanding power of the federal government and during the just completed election season the abortion lobby tried to capitalize on this phenomenon.
They did so by regurgitating their old argument that any government powerful enough to tell a woman she can't have an abortion is powerful enough to tell her that she has to have one. The irony, of course, is that the vast majority of the people making this claim are the same ones who are supporting Comrade Obama in his efforts to transform America into a socialist utopia. But we'll let that little bit of intellectual dishonesty slide for the moment and, instead, concentrate on the fact that this entire argument is pure unadulterated nonsense.
To begin with, I challenge these people to show me one example in which the federal government, or any state legislature, ever made something illegal and then forced people to do it. Using abortion as an example, back when it was illegal, how often were American women forced by some governmental authority to have one?
Beyond that, the abortion lobby's concern about women being forced to have abortions is more than a little contrived. I mean, are we really expected to believe that these moral deviants are going to get their panties in a wad over people being forced to buy their product?
Get real! The abortion industry routinely and gladly sells abortions to women who are being forced to have them – usually by a boyfriend who doesn't want to own up to his responsibility or by a parent who doesn't want to be embarrassed. This happens every day in every abortion mill in this country and the pro-choice mob knows it. Furthermore, not one of them is losing a minute's sleep over it. As for governmental force, I'll remind you that the very people making this bogyman argument are the same ones you often hear singing the praises of China's population control policy which includes women being forced to abort at the point of a gun.
The bottom line is, contrary to their public posturing, these people know full well that the only governments on earth that force women to have abortions are those in countries where abortion is legal – not illegal. In other words, the only way American women will ever face the risk of being forced by the government to have abortions is for abortion to remain legal. Let's also not forget that, when the time comes that such force is attempted in this country, its most aggressive support will come from those who stand to make the most money from it. And you don't have to be a rocket scientist to figure out who that is.
