“What kind of a country is it where abortion is subsidized and smoking is criminalized? To say that it is a morally confused, mixed-up country is putting it mildly.”

Ain’t that the truth.

Tom Bethell, an editor at American Spectator, attended the Valentine’s Day Vigil for Victims protest outside a DC area Planned Parenthood. He writes:

Every Wednesday and Saturday, a friend of mine, Dick Retta, stands vigil outside Planned Parenthood, giving sidewalk counseling. He told me that maybe 25 young women come for abortions on any given day, and perhaps 80 percent of them are African-American.

Racial-discrimination or “disparate impact” lawsuits could easily be filed, but of course the liberals are in favor of abortion and this is an issue that the black leadership ignores. They are bought off by the feminists in Congress. One way to get everyone’s attention might be for a bunch of guys to dress up in Ku Klux Klan robes and attend a pro-abortion event holding up signs saying “We Support Abortion!” Come to think of it, though, that’s one appearance by the KKK that the media would not want to draw attention to. Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, referred to the lower classes as “human weeds” and I guess she had blacks in mind, too.

Can you see the media circus that would surround that? Headline: Evil Pro-Choice Racists, uh, wait a second. Heh.

Bethell on choice:

Here’s one abortion issue that is never properly explained. We are told that easy access to abortion is a matter of “women’s reproductive rights,” or “reproductive freedom.” Nancy Pelosi uses that terminology, as do many feminists. Well, I support reproductive rights. But women already have them. There’s only one way to reproduce, and that is to have sex with a man. Involuntary sex is called rape and rape is illegal, so what’s the issue here? I guess what they don’t want to say that abortion is your basic back-up when contraception fails.

I fully agree with Bethell and have been told that I’m antiquated in my thinking if I equate choice with sex. But it’s true. Women can’t divorce themselves from the reality of biology. If you choose to have sex, you choose to accept reality: sex makes babies.

  1. Now that’s really putting it in perspective: subsidized abortion versus criminalized cigarettes. It really is sick out there and getting sicker.
