Clinical insanity appears to be a prerequisite for Democrats speaking about abortion in 2019. Case in point: Alabama state Senator Bobby Singleton. Senator Singleton was not happy that a pro-life bill placing significant restrictions on abortion easily passed in the state’s House of Representatives (74-3) and the Senate (25-6). According to Fox News, he took to the Senate floor to chastise his fellow Senators, saying: “You don’t care anything about babies for real, you just kicked them in the stomach, and you aborted them yourself! You just aborted the state of Alabama with your rhetoric with this bill! You just aborted the state of Alabama yourself, and all of you should be put in jail for this abortion that you just laid on the state of Alabama! This is just a shame, this is a disgrace, and it’s a travesty!”
Passing a bill to prevent babies from being dismembered, ripped from the womb and disposed of like so many hypodermic needles is kicking them in the stomach and aborting the entire state of Alabama? He wants to imprison 99 of his fellow representatives for casting votes?
But Senator Simpleton was just getting started. Why stop him when he was on a roll? He continued, saying those who voted in favor of the bill “don’t care nothing about mothers of the state of Alabama.” (Other than encouraging mothers to be/stay mothers). He added: “You just raped Alabama with this bill that you about to send out here, and the governor, when you sign it, you just raped the state of Alabama yourself! You just aborted and raped the state of Alabama! You just raped every little baby, you just raped every little girl, you just raped every woman who been raped by women, you just raped her all over again! Yes, I said it! And I hope your conscience is eating your head up!” Fox reported that he finished by proclaiming: “She was pregnant with this bad bill, and you just aborted her!” In progressives land of topsy-turvydom, voting to prevent widespread abortions is the one true abortion. Of someone. Or everyone. Or the whole state. Incidentally, the governor to whom Singleton was referring, Kay Ivey, is a woman. But she is also a Republican, so she should have been aborted. At least then she wouldn’t have been able to rape “every little baby” by signing a bill protecting babies. Time will tell if she still has her whole head after putting her imprimatur on such a radical bill protecting life.
The Senator’s entire tirade is, honestly, too preposterous and sad on too many levels for me to lampoon.
Happily, however, that is not the case for Bernie Sanders’ claim that abortion is a “Constitutional right.” I am fully cognizant of the right to “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness,” but I confess I am ignorant of the clause guaranteeing the right to “end a pregnancy if it should in any way inconvenience the prospective mother.”
Nor is it the case for Hillary Rodham Clinton’s recent remarks savaging state-level restrictions on abortion. She recently tweeted: “The abortion bans in Alabama, Georgia, Ohio, Kentucky, and Mississippi are appalling attacks on women’s lives and fundamental freedoms.” She urged her followers to donate to The National Network of Abortion Funds, one of whose member organizations is the Lilith Fund, named for an ancient demon who, according to mythology, preyed on children as well as pregnant women. Nice. In a separate tweet, she called on followers to prevent “a future in which our daughters and granddaughters have fewer rights than we do.”
This, too, is an inconceivably stupid remark. Those who are pro-life are trying to prevent a future in which there are no daughters and granddaughters. And who has fewer rights than an unborn baby girl?
I have always said that “pro-choice” people’s insistence that women have the inherent right to do whatever they wish with their own bodies is—or should be—an easily refuted lie. None of us have the right to drive drunk or rob a bank. With our own bodies. Even if we aren’t sheltering a nascent human life inside of us. Or trying to hurt anyone else.
