As you know, abortion is not my voting issue.
But how can a person not ponder it after the abortion-fest that was the DNC convention in Charlotte this week. “Women’s reproductive health issues” can only mean abortion – if it meant birth control, that wouldn’t be a strictly woman’s issue, now would it? So here’s a few questions I have for the average Democrat:
- Where was your voice this week? Surely there are some moderate D’s that are not wholly on the surgical excision bandwagon. Even with a self-persuading argument about when life starts* and are ok with early-term abortions, are there any who might want to draw a line at the thought of what late-term abortion really means? And I’m not even talking about partial-birth abortion or Baby Born Alive situations although I’m wondering where are the Democrats who are opposed to piercing the skull of a baby whose body is delivered but his head is not yet emerged**. Where is that voice in the DNC?
- If it’s really women’s health that we’re talking about, answer this question that no one on twitter could answer for me:
There are roughly twice as many boobs as vaginas around. So why does Obamacare reduce mammograms and promote abortions? If we’re talking about prevalence and applying resources for the greatest good, you would think it would be the opposite.
I know there must be less radical Democrats besides the enthusiastic Kill The BABIEEEZ For Any Reason At Any Time crowd that have the ear of the platform makers. Where are they? Why do they not speak?
Now here’s a question for Democrat women only:
When a DNC-approved and pre-screened speaker stood in front of the convention and said: there are three simple reasons for anyone to support Barack Obama: “Your sister, your mother, and your daughter”, didn’t you find it insulting or even slightly odd that he didn’t include “YOU”.
Hello? Didn’t any of you get just a little shiver when you recognized that the party call only goes out to the men?
* If you know, please share.
**Actually, I have few questions for the doctors that are not opposed to this.
