Pro-Family, Anti-Baby?

A short post this time around. With the passage of more state laws restoring or defending the traditional definition of marriage (particularly the high-profile Prop. 8 in CA), Christian leaders across the country have issued press releases proclaiming the good news. There is definitely reason to celebrate!

Still, there was a disconnect in the voting this election cycle. Voters defended marriage -- and by extension, the family -- but many pro-life measures were defeated, sometimes by the same voters. In CA, specifically, Prop. 8 gained much more support when proponents ran some ads informing voters of the homosexual agenda (more on that in an upcoming post) and how it was being foisted upon their children in the public schools. So it seems that voters' support of Prop. 8 was at least in part driven by defense of the family. But then some of the same voters turned around and voted against Prop. 4, a common-sense law ensuring parental notification when pregnant minors seek an abortion. Can a parent be more concerned about homosexual propaganda invading her child's mind than about a scalpel and vacuum invading her child's uterus*? I'm sure there are more eloquent ways to ask the question I just asked. But does my blunt presentation make me wrong necessarily?

How can Americans be pro-family but anti-baby? What are your thoughts? If anyone has read anything on this, I'd be interested to check it out.

*Dilation and curettage (D&C) is the abortion procedure I'm referring to here. Did you know that "curettage" actually means "scraping"? Do you think D&C would be acceptable to most Americans if it was referred to as "dilation and scraping"? I don't, either. It's interesting how powerful words can be, isn't it? (more on this in an upcoming post)
