President-elect Obama has named the executive director of Emily’s List — Ellen Moran — as White House communications director.
Yes the director of the pro-abortion PAC that since its founding in 1984 has raised over $240 million to elect 71 pro-choice Democratic women to the U.S. House, 13 to the U.S. Senate, and eight governors. Another pro-abortion “moderate” for the Obama administration.
I do find it interesting how much grief so-called single issue voters get, yet Emily’s list which is a single issue PAC for a single gender seems to be immune to this charge by the left. I guess you can be a single-issue type as long as you are on the right side of the single issue.
Plus we got pro-abortion Catholic Tom Daschle as the Secretary of Health and Human Services in Obama’s Cabinet. From the vice-president on down we are getting cafeteria Catholics galore. They will work quite well with Nancy “I still haven’t gotten around to speaking with my bishop yet” Pelosi.
None of this bothers me though. After all Catholic Obama supporters told us that Obama is really more pro-life and that his policies will reduce abortion. Strangely I had never come up with the idea of appointing a militantly pro-abortion women as White House Communication Directory or appointing others all on the same side of the pro-abortion deep end. Silly me I would have thought that this would have a negative effect on a policy to reduce abortion.
I guess I am just so politically naive that I don’t understand how promising to approve FOCA which removes every single state law restricting abortion will reduce abortion. I actually thought that it was parental notification and laws regarding ultrasounds that were mainly what have lead to a decline in surgical abortions in recent years. Hey maybe we need to get rid of laws regarding murder to reduce the murder rate. Let’s put fried chocolate candy bars at the top of the food pyramid to improve nutrition.
We have so much to learn from Obama Catholics in this non-intuitive way of being pro-life. I can hardly wait for Obama’s pro-Roe v Wade Supreme Court picks that will keep states from regulating abortion as a way to reduce abortion. Plus getting rid of the Mexico City Policy and the Hyde Amendment are more ways to reduce abortion.
I can hardly wait for President Obama’s message for the March for Life which occurs 2 days after his inauguration. It will surely be a cheery message about children being a punishment and how it is all above his paygrade.
