Liberals Acknowledge Love of Abortion

At least we won’t have to listen to nauseatingly phony bumper stick slogans like “Safe, Legal, and Rare.” Liberals are dropping the pretense and openly admitting that they consider abortion to be “great”:

Katha Pollitt’s Pro: Reclaiming Abortion Rights is a deeply felt and well-researched book which argues that abortion, despite what any of its opponents might claim, is a palpable social good. Progressives, Pollitt says, can and must treat abortion as an unequivocal positive rather than a “necessary evil”; there is no ethical, humane way to limit abortion rights. The fact that Pollitt needs to make this argument in 2014, however, seems to indicate that pro-choicers have long been a little too nice for our own good.

People who advocate the killing of your own children on grounds of inconvenience are “too nice.” No wonder progressives ally themselves with Muslims.

Pollitt convincingly outlines the many reasons that abortion is not only necessary but good for society: “always a choice,” as she writes, “and often a deeply moral decision.”

Among these lame reasons, put forth in apparent seriousness, is the bizarre assertion that “abortion saves lives.” As of January, 56,662,169 Americans have lost their lives to abortion since Roe v. Wade.

A commenter at Sipsey Street Irregulars, horrified by this story, aptly referred to Isaiah 5:20:

Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.

But progressives live by their own shallow, smirking scriptures:
