Eleanor Smeal, president of the pro-abortion Feminist Majority Foundation, which publishes Ms., says the issue comes at a “dire” time when abortions are on the decline, states are considering abortion bans, and the Senate has approved two new Supreme Court justices who may back repealing Roe v. Wade.
The issue is also timed to coincide with the heating up of the November election battle, but Smeal told the Associated Press “We have to get away from what the politicians are saying and get women’s lives back in the picture.”
If you don’t think that abortion is the defining issue of our time (sorry Hannity, terrorism is important, but there won’t be anyone for them to kill when the Culture of Death has had its way with America), get your head out from wherever it is you’ve stuck it. Ms. Magazine recognizes it. Planned Parenthood recognizes it. NARAL Pro-Choice America recognizes it. The Democratic Party recognizes it. Do you?
“…the issue comes at a “dire” time when abortions are on the decline, states are considering abortion bans, and the Senate has approved two new Supreme Court justices who may back repealing Roe v. Wade.” Women just aren’t killing their babies like in the good ol’ days. We’ve got to step it up. Forget “safe, legal, and rare,” we’re fighting against their very existence–er, for our very existence here!
There is something very eery about women being proud of having taken the lives of their offspring. Or there should be. But we seem to have trouble comprehending the actions of someone like Andrea Yates. Of course she wasn’t insane! Millions of women trampled the same bloody path before her. In the midst of this American twenty-first century it should not sound strange in the least to hear women claiming to do what’s best for their children by killing them, whether by water or abortionist’s knife. “Reaping what we sow” is passť; the harvest has been coming in for thirty years.
