The pro-abortion crowd usually does their best to dance
around the fact that abortion involves two lives, that of both mother and
child. But on occasion they will
let their mask slip.
The first time I can remember seeing such slippage was while
perusing the appendix of the Human Life Bill hearings back in 1981. (Yes. I was quite a political nerd back
then.) I have no idea where I have
misplaced that tome and do not remember the names, but in said appendix was a
letter from a head of a pro-abortion organization breezily stating that the
question of whether the unborn child is a living human being was
irrelevant. That was an eye
Much more recently, Salon, namely Mary Elizabeth Williams,
has let the mask slip again:
wavered for a moment in the belief that I was carrying a human life inside of
me. I believe that’s what a fetus is: a human life. And that doesn’t make me
one iota less solidly pro-choice.
Well, at least she is honest. And honesty can be a rare commodity amongst the “pro-choice”
But her admission confirms that the advocates of unfettered
abortion, particularly those who think those of us who oppose abortion should
be compelled to help provide it, do not care so much about choice as they disregard
the sanctity of life.
