Raining cats, dogs, and hypocrisy

by Cindy Simpson

[Excerpt]

... Now we have Chesterton's "new theologians" supporting a California Planned Parenthood's "Forty Days of Prayer." As PJ Tatler explains, they are "literally making a sacrament of abortion." The "prayers" include thanksgiving for the availability of abortion services, abortion's legality, and the "sacred" nature of the care that abortion providers offer. There are even prayers against pro-lifers. Another "prayer" is offered for "...the families we've chosen. May they know the blessing of choice."

But as asked in this Washington Post editorial: "What about the babies who weren't 'chosen'?"

Planned Parenthood has invoked Orwellian doublespeak: instead of "prayer changes things," "things change prayer."

In further attempts to change the ugly truth, liberals and the mainstream media have labeled the battle to protect religious freedom and the lives of unborn babies as a "war against women." Turley's "2011 Top Legal Opinion Blog" that noted the court's role in protecting the life of Boots the cat posted another column that argues that the men of the GOP (referred to as "male vagina vigilantes") are "trying to gain authority over the opposite sex by taking control of contraception...[sic]and women's bodies."

Yet that same sarcastic post and its author's subsequent comments that fretted over women's "health" and abortion "rights" mentioned not a word about the health or rights of the unborn nor the validity of any opposing legal or moral arguments. Neither did its hundred-plus commenters.

In "progressive" society, the abortion issue is generally not addressed as the gruesome procedure that it really is, and instead framed as the more rights-evoking concept of pro-choice or positive-sounding idea of women's reproductive health. When a baby is wanted, available scientific technology helps ensure its survival; when not, it's merely considered a "clump of cells" or a "punishment" and destroyed, even if it survives a botched procedure. Not only does the solution of "privacy rights" deny Chesterton's cat, it affirms society's imagining that it, and not God, created the life in the first place....
