A Catholic Nun has pointed out the major flaw of pro life politics. She said those who are against abortion but don’t support pubic spending for children are not pro life, they are just pro birth. This lady has served the Catholic Church for a lifetime, has advanced university degrees and published several books. Her only sin is that she sees through the hypocrisy within pro life politics.
Retired House of Representatives member, Barney Frank, said, “Prolife politics supports babies up until they are born.”
As the current President and Congress pillage public budgets while rubbing their hands together hoping to stop abortions, they are making plain the observations of the nun and Frank are right on the mark. Nothing could be more obvious than the desire to make lives of born children miserable and unsuccessful.
If pro life politics would make even a token effort to improve child health and welfare instead of putting all its focus on taking rights away from women it would be most refreshing.
Refreshing also would be some interest in saving lives of humans instead of just saving fetuses. There is no news about that.
When lives are lost in activities pro life people themselves enjoy, there is no effort to save those lives. My adult daughter came close to serious injury last week when a texting driver crashed into her car.
Legislators apparently like to drive and text. They know there is more campaign money is in defunding Planned Parenthood than is saving lives on streets and highways.
