Regular readers will know that I’m unashamedly pro-life, while acknowledging that there are certain (very limited, very few) cases where abortion might possibly be unavoidable. Nevertheless, the outrage on the pro-choice side over the potential overturning of Roe v. Wade has been an eye-opener. I’ve seldom seen such an absence of logic and reason, accompanied by a veritable flood of emotion and “muh feelz!!!”
It’s ironic how many of those supporting Roe v. Wade were also all-out in favor of COVID-19 restrictions and vaccination over the past couple of years. This meme says it all.
I couldn’t agree more.
There’s also the logical disconnect between supporting abortion rights, and supporting the black community. Courtesy of a link at Francis Porretto’s place, a minute-long video on Twitter highlights the dichotomy. It’s worth clicking over there to watch it. Recommended viewing.
I can’t help a cynical shake of the head at those screaming the loudest about Roe v. Wade. They’re not arguing about abortion as such. It’s all about control – just as the whole COVID-19 brouhaha was ultimately about control. They want to keep Roe v. Wade because it allows them to control those opposed to abortion, to prevent them putting their views democratically to the voters of the USA. That’s why they’re horrified at the prospect that each state’s voters can decide for themselves whether or not they want to permit abortion. It would result in their loss of national control.
Can’t happen soon enough, sez I.
