Pro-Abortionists, Start Your Hybrid Engines!

The Supreme Court has voted 5-4 to uphold the ban on partial birth abortion — er, I mean, “intact dilation and evacuation followed by nonviable tissue mass dumpster deposit.”

Can you believe that, in this day and age, there are people throwing a fit about the slaughter of babies being outlawed? These are, ironically, often the same people who want to ban guns so no more kids get hurt at school. Talk about “selective caring” — geez.

There is the provision in the Supreme Court’s version for the “health of the mother,” allowing the procedure when the woman’s life is in jeopardy. That doesn’t seem to be making the pro-abortionists happy though. Looks like somebody called their bluff, because it’s never been about the issue of the “health” of the mother. I’m guessing a good deal of the panic has something to do with the fact that part of somebody’s revenue stream is going down the toilet. Oh well, better their revenue stream than baby parts.

Planned Parenthood has this prominently displayed on their website:

Oh man, sorry, I gave my last few hundred bucks to John Edwards for a haircut. Edwards, by the way, “could not disagree more strongly” with the ruling. I’ll bet if one of those carved up babies could sue for malpractice, ol’ John would be on board the pro-life bandwagon faster than you can say “pass the conditioner.”

The politicians are mobilizing though. Hillary’s getting out her “If abortions are outlawed, only outlaws will be allowed to screw around with my husband” T-shirt. Look out.

Get ready for the slew of pro-abortionists to hit the airwaves and tell us we’ve lost one of the cornerstones of our Constitution, all while using the usual “Suzie Sunshine” approach to renaming fetal genocide so it sounds cuter, like “reproductive rights.”

Those of us who are pro-life are the ones who are for reproductive rights. What’s reproductive about not reproducing? And how is that child going to have the right to reproduce if he or she is dead?

Referring to the killing of babies “reproductive freedom,” “pro-choice” and “planned family management” would be comical, if it weren’t so tragic. Had these people done public-relations work for the Khmer Rouge, the most harsh sounding “killing fields” would have been renamed a much more pleasant “Pol Pot gardens” or “meadows of preference.”

So, as the squawking commences, it’s not too early to start planning for Mothers Day next month. Head on over to the N.O.W. store and get mom a “Keep abortion legal” bracelet.

Don’t miss this special opportunity to tell your pro-choice mom, via a snazzy piece of jewelry: “Thanks for not wanting to go to jail if you’d decided to kill me in your womb.” Touching. Better have some Kleenex ready.
