Planned Parenthood, Lena Dunham, NARAL and all the other so-called women’s rights
advocates are left stunned today that their message of abortion-on-demand and without
apology and free birth control didn’t work. Of course it didn’t work. It was insulting and so out-of-touch with what moms, businesswomen, and college students care about.
What about the economy, jobs, healthcare? Our country is failing women in those areas and all Planned Parenthood wants to do is promote an actress who relates voting to a sexual experience. Grow up. It was a big mistake to trot out stories about how abortion should be less stigmatized and that a procedure that ends the life of another, defenseless human being, is a social and moral good.
The tide is turning and Americans, especially women, are listening to that gut reaction they have when faced with a heavy-handed message of abortion-on-demand. No amount of pretty pink running shoes or t-shirts designed by Hollywood actresses are going to cover up the fact that abortion harms women and takes the life of an innocent preborn child.
But now it’s time to get to work. The Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which bans abortions after a preborn child has been proven to feel pain, has been lingering in the Senate. Time to pass that bill. And why is Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion chain, still getting over a half a billion dollars in taxpayer dollars every year? The House of Representatives has passed bills defunding the abortion Goliath. Time for the Senate to pass that bill.
Obamacare funds abortion, as a recent GAO report found – which came as no surprise to any pro-life group who has said from Day One that the healthcare law funded abortion. Time to use the pro-life majority in Congress to make sure that no taxpayer dollars are funding abortion.
We are still living under the most pro-abortion president in our nation’s history but bad things happen because good people do nothing and while President Obama will likely veto every pro-life bill, we must keep fighting and be persistent. If we send pro-life bills to the president and he vetoes them one after another, who is to say that we won’t be able to get the votes to override those vetoes? If no one stands up for the most defenseless among us, then who will?
