Turning the Tables on a Catholic Left Ideologue
Some overly ideological Democath partisan hack*:
If those making this argument would otherwise support the health care reform on offer, this is one thing. But if those making the argument are not inclined to support the reform, then they are using the unborn to score a cheap political point. Shameful, but par for the course for what calls itself the pro-life movement in the US. Remember, the NRLC has opposed universal health care for years, for reasons unconnected to abortion, and Judie Brown is happy to extol the virtues of torture.Now, let's turn the tables on our shilling friend:
If those making the argument in favor of the health care reform on offer (despite the likelihood that it will provide federally funded and/or mandated abortion coverage) would otherwise support efforts to protect the civil rights of the unborn by working to overturn the unjust legal regime that mandates abortion on demand, this is one thing. But if those making the argument in favor of this health care reform effort are not inclined to support the abortion abolition agenda, then they are phony pro-lifers using their alleged "consistent ethic of life" approach to score cheap political points and confuse Catholics into voting for their agenda. Shameful, but par for the course for those that hide behind the so-called "seamless garment" to push a statist agenda that otherwise bears no resemblance to Catholic Social Teaching. Remember, the Catholic left (including Catholics United, Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good, Catholic Democrats, etc.) have ignored the plight of the unborn for years, for reasons unconnected to health care reform, and Joe Biden, Ted Kennedy, Nancy Pelosi, Mario Cuomo, and Doug Kmiec are happy to extol the virtues of "choice".
* Normally, I would ignore someone who refers to me as a "Republicath" (and I have especially been ignoring this particular Dem shill as of late); but, in this instance, I've decided to respond in kind. The difference is that, since I'm actually NOT a Republican (and, in fact, have been fairly disgusted with that party for a number of years now), whereas my interlocutor is MOST DEFINITELY a Democath partisan hack, the epithet with which I have chosen to describe him at least has the benefit of being accurate.
