Irony: “Moral Monday” Crowd To Rally For Abortion Rights

They’re doing their best to position today’s crazy protest as about being for “women’s rights”, but since the big topic over the last two weeks here in North Carolina has been legislation instituting a few basic, minor common sense solutions regarding abortion, we know what they mean

(WRAL[1]) The North Carolina chapter of the NAACP says Monday’s protest at the state legislative building will focus on the rights and leadership of women.

It will mark the 11th gathering of people speaking out against policies advanced by the Republican majority of the General Assembly. The events have drawn thousands from across the state and have made headlines across the country, most recently in the New York Times.

“These attacks on women’s health are dangerous and are deeply unpopular, and that is why we are here,” said Melissa Reed, of Planned Parenthood.

Gee, if a Planned Parenthood representative is yammering on about “women’s health”, and the conversation has been about abortion as of late, does anyone else find it ironic to include it on “Moral Monday”?

A news conference will be held at Pullen Memorial Baptist Church at 4 p.m. A mass “Moral Monday” rally is scheduled for 5 p.m. on Halifax Mall in downtown Raleigh.

And more irony…or would that be hypocrisy?….to push abortion “rights” at a church.

Meanwhile, the City of Raleigh is not happy[2] about having had to spend $69,000 on policing and arresting the unhinged protesters. The Wake County Sheriff’s department is likewise unhappy about spending over $40,000 so far for these nuts.
