Abortion Marchers in DC

It’s that time of the year again, when radical feminists, man-hating lesbians, socialists, and other pro-abortion forces storm Washington, DC, in support of abortion. Dubbed “The March for Women’s Lives,” this event attracted demonstrators from over 60 countries, reports the AP.

One marcher gave a statement so full of irony, I just have to comment. Carole Mehlman, a veteran of abortion marches, informs us “I just had to be here to fight for the next generation and the generation after that… We cannot let them take over our bodies, our health care, our lives.” The “next generation, and the generation after that,” huh? I guess supporting their dismemberment somehow qualifies as fighting for them. The part about letting the government control their healthcare also seems disingenuous; after all, these are the same people who agitate for universal healthcare and government funding for abortion. In fact, one of the rationales for this march was that the government isn’t promoting abortion abroad.

Everyone’s favorite junior senator from New York was also present, as were such luminaries as Whoopi Goldberg (maybe she thought it would be good for the ratings of her floundering TV show), Ted Turner, and Linda Carter. The later gives us this wisdom: “It is the ultimate intrusion by government to tell a woman when she can have children, if she has them at all.” Hmmm, opposing abortion prevents women from having children? Interesting logic. I would think the exact opposite would be true. I hear abortions in China do more to prevent women from having children than any pro-lifer could ever do.

Polls show than young people are less likely to support abortion than their parents, which bodes well for the future. NARAL people can deny it all they want, but America is trending pro-life. A recent study by the Center for the Advancement of Women, an abortion rights organization, found 51 percent of the women surveyed supported banning abortion, or limiting it only to cases of rape, incest, and to protect the life of the mother. Another 17 percent wanted stricter restrictions on abortion than now exist, as I cited in a column last year. Hillary and her cronies can’t be happy about this…
