Ashli puts a nice smack-down on the latest meme about pro-lifers. That once a child is born we don’t give a damn about the child and it’s health or education. Someone recently posted this meme in a comment box on one of my posts and so it was timely for Ashli to post on this. She makes some excellent points as to asking where is the pro-abortion crowd is after a women has an abortion and then has physical or emotional problems?
The abortion supporter is only there to put an arm around a grieving mother… so they can reach around and clap a hand over her wailing mouth. "Shut up," the abortion supporter sneers. "Your voice is not wanted. You made your bed, now lie in it. It was your choice. YOUR choice!"
The same people who would want to send in grief counselors if the family pet was run over will totally deny that women and those involved in the abortion can possibly have any grief. Their tactic is deny, deny, deny. Recently we have had multiple stories and constant cable news coverage on Celebrex at four times the dosage possibly leading to increased risk of heart attacks. Yet Mifeprex used for a chemical abortion at the normal dosage is much more likely to cause death then Celebrex. Where is the concern for the life of the mother in this case by pro-abortion types?
It is no surprise that the meme used against those who are pro-life is increasingly used. They usually frame the debate in government provided healthcare and education. One of the problems in modern discourse is that if you do not agree with someone’s solution to a problem then you are automatically branded as not caring about the problem. For example if you don’t accept a junk science fact on the environment then you must be for dirty air and water. If you don’t believe that government provided health care is the best way to provide access to healthcare for everyone you must have disdain for the poor. We need to move the debate on both sides away from demonizing others about their concern about a problem and move the debate towards what is the more prudential answer to a problem.
