These People Will Stop at Nothing…

November 9th, 2004 Posted in Politics

This article on women given pamphlets incorrectly linking abortion to breast cancer is simply astounding. This is my favorite part:

Joel Brind, a biochemist at Baruch College in New York who advises the Coalition on Abortion/Breast Cancer, noted that a woman’s chances of getting breast cancer go down if she gives birth at a relatively young age. He reasons that those who opt for abortion are giving up a chance of reducing their breast cancer risk.

Of course! That finally explains why only career women and sluts who need abortions get breast cancer. You ladies should just stay in the kitchen where you belong, and only use your (cancer free) breasts for feeding babies. We all know that’s what God designed you for anyways.

In all seriousness, this type of thing just brings credibility to my oft touted claim that abortion is not really about religion and protecting life; it’s more about trying to reverse the sexual liberation of women and stopping the decline of the traditional family model. If anti-abortionists were really interested in fostering a “culture of life”, wouldn’t they support free pre-natal and post-natal care for pregnant women? Wouldn’t they oppose the death penalty (especially when applied toward the mentally impaired)? Wouldn’t they want to continue social programs which help support struggling mothers? Wouldn’t they support stricter gun control to reduce firearm deaths? The truth is, many conservatives cherry-pick the bible (as I did intentionally in my last entry) so they can justify their sexist, racist, and homophobic viewpoints.
