The Pro-Abortion movement is terrified that their recent efforts to expand their access to federal funding could be in jeopardy, and now – like some people do when they are scared – they are saying stupid things.
Take for instance their decision to blow up over a minor change in the language to define rape in one of the provisions of HR 3, the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act (co-sponsored by CV-endorsed Dan Lipinski, and joined by nine other Democrat Congressmen and numerous Republicans):
Nancy Keenan, president of NARAL, says the bill is “one of the most extreme bills that we’ve seen.” adding that it is “basically putting more restrictions on what was defined historically as rape.”
The pro-abortion Daily Kos blog goes further – where writer Dante Atkins said he can’t imagine why anyone wouldn’t want their tax dollars going to pay for abortions and attacked pro-life advocates supporting the bill for completing the “transition to American Taliban.
“It’s the type of thing that really makes you wonder what’s wrong with people. Is it any wonder that women tend to vote for Democrats? The GOP thinks that unless you were hogtied or had a knife brandished at you, you deserve whatever you get. Why not just put women in a burqa, assign them a male relative as an escort, and be done with it?” he wrote.” (LifeNews)
Jon Stewart even made this the topic of one of his comedy sketches on The Daily Show. I’m sure Rachel Maddow won’t be far behind.
This is all classic misdirection. When faced with a bill that would shore up federal funding of abortion and abortion providers, the pro-abortion movement literally screams “RAPE!”.
Nothing could be further from the truth, and in fact the authors of the legislation have dropped the language even though the original language was unambiguous.
This episode only further reveals how bankrupt the pro-abortion industry is when it comes to providing real arguments for why American tax dollars should continue to fund their industry.
This sort of thing makes me lose patience for when the pro-abortion side claims the pro-life movement makes outrageous claims and blows things out of proportion. After all, the entire pro-abortion industry is now claiming with a straight face that the authors of this bill intended to redefine rape and expose more women to exploitation.
That’s rich coming from a movement that, as we have seen in the Live Action expose videos, has turned the exploitation of women into a profitable, taxpayer-funded business.
Still, since I did not explicitly say in this post that I am against rape (here’s a shocker: I am), I can expect pro-aborts to quote me as saying I don’t care about that issue.
What they will never respond to is the fact that rapists and abusers of women know exactly who to turn to when their victims become pregnant or require birth control:
… that’s right, the abortion industry.
So let’s put an end to this rape canard and get back to defunding the real victimizers.
