Not Your Grandfather’s Democrats

The following is in response to Joshua’s post below:

No Joshua,

You are not too tough on the Democrat party. What we are confronted with now is not our grandfather’s Democrat party or the party of Scoop Jackson, Harry Truman or JFK. For example: Today to be a “good” Democrat you have to be a liberal; to be a “good” liberal you have to be pro-abortion. To be pro-abortion is to be a bad Catholic. The Democrat party betrayed the Catholic Church.

Democrats used to be the party of the “little guy” now they kill the littlest guy of all: the little boy or girl in the womb. To support abortion indicates moral corruption. Moral corruption leads to intellectual corruption and voila! we are in the state we are in today.

No Catholic has any business voting democratic.

    You can’t force a woman to carry a baby to term. First, that’s indentured servitude. The government would be, in effect, requiring a woman to work for them to deliver their child. Second, even if you could make the requirement, you can’t control what the woman does. Very few wealthy, single, white females choose abortion. The VAST majority of abortions are poor women. Often unable to take care of themselves, drug or alcohol addicts, or prostitutes. You can’t force them to take care of themselves, or their babies. Most would simply choose to continue to use drugs, damage themselves, or find someone to perform the abortion in a back alley. Everyone is not like you. It would be much more effective for you to support programs that help women choose alternatives to abortion. You can’t force people to do the right thing.

      Respectfully, pure nonsense. It is no more indentured servitude than aborting the child is self defense. To wit: If you are the cause of conflict or the service, it is neither self-defense nor indentured servitude.

      The government would be, in effect, requiring a woman to work for them to deliver their child.

      Laws that ban abortion no more make a women government employee than laws against armed robbery make thieves work for the government.

      Second, even if you could make the requirement, you can’t control what the woman does.

      Again, this is like saying we can’t stop bank robberies, so we might as well repeal armed robbery laws. Plus, if abortionist doctors did hard time with loss of medical license, abortion would dry up fast.

      Very few wealthy, single, white females choose abortion. The VAST majority of abortions are poor women.

      A). A dubious claim and B.) Irrelevant to the fact that deliberately killing an innocent human being is ALWAYS wrong.

      Everyone is not like you.

      Again, see analogy to armed robbery.

      It would be much more effective for you to support programs that help women choose alternatives to abortion.

      It’s both/and, not either/or. We can support pregnant women and criminalize abortion and arrest abortionist doctors. You can’t force people to do the right thing. The armed robbery thing again.

      You can’t force people to do the right thing, but you shouldn’t make it easy to do the wrong thing. And in the case of destroying a human being you shouldn’t make it legal to do the wrong thing nor fund it with public money.

      Jamie, Nothing you’ve said here seems to have anything to do with what I posted above. I have never forced anyone to do anything, nor would I try. But if I saw someone about to murder someone I hope and pray I’d have the courage to stop it by force if necessary.

      Second, I question your about the “VAST” majority of abortions being done on poor women. Everyone knows Planned Parenthood is not a charitable organization. Those times I prayed in front of abortion mills the “vast” percentage of women I saw going in were white well-to do-appearing women.

      Third, it so happens that I DO support programs that help women choose alternatives to abortion. My sister directs a shelter for unwed, poor homeless mothers, some of whom have addiction problems, and I deal with them, I am an addictions counselor. The one thing they seem to have in common is their love for their babies who they chose, against all odds, not to kill.

      You should be more careful about the assumptions you make.
