It certainly should.
I was planning on posting “Thoughts On What An Ethical Solution To The Abortion Ethics Conflict Might Look Like, Part 2: A Solution,” which has been languishing since November. I had decided to wait for the Dobbs decision before finishing my draft. As I have watched, read and listened to the ugly, ruthless, intellectually dishonest and sometimes unhinged reaction first to the Alito draft and now today to the final Dobbs opinion overturning Roe, however, I am seeing a hopeful development. The fanaticism and complete comfort with idea of killing nascent human life has burst out the abortion fans like pus from a boil. It is rank and horrifying, but it is also honest and revealing. They can’t hide behind “choice” any more. Finally, they are revealing just how corrupt their thinking is and how warped their values have become.
Consider this exchange on CNN today, as CNN Newsroom host Alisyn Camerota used the network’s favorite conservative commentator (because she’s not a conservative) and co-host of “The View” (and you know what THAT means), Ana Navarro to debate Republican strategist Alice Stewart regarding the Dobbs ruling…
ALICE STEWART: I can tell you, having worked and advocated in the pro-life community for many years, there are crisis pregnancy centers set up across this country that are there to provide assistance, financial assistance, for expectant mothers.
ALISYN CAMEROTA (interrupting): Right, but I mean, after they’re born.
STEWART: Before, during, and after they have their child, whether they decide to put it up for adoption or they want to keep it themselves. There are services in place in the pro-life community that will help in this situation.
CAMEROTA: But Alice. Hold on. Let me just talk to you about that. There are something like 410,000 children in the foster care system right now in the U.S. So, clearly, they’re not all being adopted. And some of these babies will have obviously physical disabilities. I mean, what is the plan? Obviously, they’re not just all being taken care of currently.
Let me stop here. I am encountering this argument more and more over the last few months. Camerota is genuinely arguing that it’s important to let mothers kill these kids before they are born. No more intentionally vague and deceitful “choice” cover-words. That’s her “plan.” That’s the Democratic Party’s “plan.”
Then Navarro jumped in to show she’s a fool as well as fan of eugenics.
ANA NAVARRO: And I am not anybody to tell you what you need to do with your life or with your uterus. And because I have a family with a lot of special needs kids. I have a brother who’s 57 and has the mental and motor skills of a 1-year-old. And I know what that means financially, emotionally, physically, for a family.
And I know not all families can do it and I have a step-granddaughter who was born with Down’s Syndrome and you know what? It is very difficult in Florida to get services. It is not as easy as it sounds on paper. And I’ve got another step-grandson who is very autistic, who has autism and it is –
And their mothers and people who are in that society who are in that community will tell you that they considered suicide because that’s how difficult it is to get help, because that’s how lonely they feel. Because they can’t get other jobs. Because they have financial issues. Because the care that they’re able to give their other children suffers.
And so, why can I be Catholic and still think this is a wrong decision? Because I’m American. I’m Catholic inside the church. I’m Catholic when it comes to me. But there’s a lot of Americans who are not Catholic, and are not Christian, and are not Baptist, and you have no damn right to tell them what they should do with their bodies. Nobody does.
Imagine, people pay this inarticulate, babbling idiot to render her opinion on national TV! Let’s see:
1. The resorting to “my life and my uterus” rings desperate and dishonest now. Hmmm, let’s see, is something else involved in an abortion other than the mother’s life and her uterus? Unfortunately, Stewart didn’t have the wit to knock that statement out of the park as the sickening rationalization it is, but this is CNN’s unethical game: find inarticulate, slow-witted conservatives for alleged “balance.”
2. Navarro, even more clearly and guilelessly than Camarotta, is literally saying, “If we don’t kill these children before they are born, they are a lot of trouble and expense!”
Would it be tasteless and excessive to reference Nazi Germany now? Why?
3. The last paragraph is a classic of justified hypocrisy and Ana’s proud integrity void. What’s the matter with believing one thing in Church while denying it aggressively in public? After all, she’s an American!
4. The government has the right to tell people they can’t kill whomever and whatever they please. In fact, it has the obligation to set such limitations.
There they are, everyone! These are the people who are fanatic about abortions; this is how they think; these are their values.
Aren’t they repulsive? Isn’t what they are saying completely devoid of respect for human life? Are these really the kind of people you trust?
It’s so good of them to finally show us who they are.
