With the end of the week upon us, I think it time to look at three responses – or lack thereof – to the U. S. Senate failing to pass the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act thanks to all but two Democrats opposing it. Remember that PCUCPA would have outlawed most abortions after 20 weeks. And you have to be grossly ignorant or devoid of ethics to be okay with elective abortion after 20 weeks of gestation. I choose the three responders, or non-responders, because they are of particular interest to ACNA Anglicans, as you shall see, and because these three claim to be for “social justice” and also pro-life.
The first is Tish Harrison Warren. Her twitter response to President Trump speaking to the March for Life was that it was negative for the pro-life cause. And she used the occasion to point people to Liberal/Left “pro-life” groups, including the AND Campaign.
The second is the AND Campaign. As we have exposed, it is likely more a Democrat front group than it is pro-life. The failure of PCUCPA gave it an opportunity to prove me somewhat wrong. Did it?
The third is Archbishop Foley Beach’s Canon to the Ordinary in the ACNA Diocese of the South, Greg Goebel. His twitter response to Trump’s appearance at the March for Life was . . . well, judge for yourself.
So how did these respond to the failure of PCUCPA on twitter?
Tish Warren should be cut some slack because she does not tweet frequently. But she did tweet about the Democrat debate this week. Yet she has not mentioned the failure of PCUCPA. So, to her, Trump speaking to the March for Life is a “set-back” worth noting, but Democrats defeating the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act apparently is not.
The oh-so “pro-life” AND Campaign? Crickets.
Greg Goebel? He is a very frequent tweeter. And surely after using Trump’s appearance at the March for Life as an occasion to bash him, he would be even harder on those Democrat Senators who defeated protecting late term unborn children, so late they even experience pain.
And, let’s see, this week he tweeted about clergy self-care and losing weight, about Lent quite a lot – good, about making too much vegetable soup. He tweeted a photo of pancakes and much, much more. So surely he also tweeted his disgust with Democrats defeating a bill protecting the unborn after 20 weeks.
But no. As of this writing, there is nothing this week on the failure of the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act on Goebel’s twitter feed. Trump is the first President of the United States to personally appear at a March for Life, and Goebel’s response is ORANGE MAN BAD. Democrats kill protections for late stage unborn, and . . . crickets.
I am no mind reader. Readers may draw their own conclusions about the priorities of these three. But sometimes silence is louder than words.
