Carol Platt Liebau: So Much for "Safe, Legal and Rare"

So Much for "Safe, Legal and Rare"

Ms. magazine is running a cover featuring the signatures of 5,000 women who had abortions, with the apparent aim, as this story puts it, to "declare they are unashamed of the choice they made."

Well. There's a difference, isn't there, between being "unashamed" and actually publicizing the decision as if one is proud of it, isn't there?

The deplorable -- but instructive -- part of this tasteless publicity stunt is that it reveals the true agenda of the feminist movement. There's nothing about making abortion "safe, legal and rare" as Democratic politicians would have voters believe. Rather, there's an effort to normalize and legitimize abortion as a practice.

Wonder if Ms. would ever consider running a cover with the names of all the women who now regret their "choice"? Sadly, there can never be a cover with the names of the 5,000 or so unborn babies with whom the Ms. signatories were pregant . . . they never lived to receive a name.

Or perhaps they could run stories of KKK members that are unashamed of having hanged black men, or Nazis who are unashamed of having gassed Jews. Where's the difference between the three? The same old tired biologically false premise of a person not being a person during the first trimester? They might not be ashamed of their "choice", but I'm ashamed there's people like that in the US of A.

"Safe, legal and rare."

Don't you think these feministas would prefer well-done just from a food safety standpoint? Oh right: "meat is murder"... forgot that.
