Abortion-Promoting Liberals

Hatred of progressive values makes some people delusional. Look what I just found:

One is either an abortion-hating, pro-war, pro-market deregulation conservative or a abortion-promoting, anti-war, pro-market regulation liberal.

Have you met an “abortion-promoting Liberal”? I can just imagine Liberals being shipped on buses into an area to hand out leaflets saying, “Abortion is good! Have abortions now and be saved!” There must also be Liberals who stand in front of OB-GYN offices hounding pregnant women into aborting and screaming insults in their faces. And the most progressive Liberals must certainly be known for shooting to death midwives and doctors who deliver babies.

On the weird planet this blogger lives, such Liberals probably exist. In real world, Liberals promote rights, not actual abortions.

The rest of the post is as egregious. It goes as far as suggesting that being Liberal somehow translates into being 100% anti-Israel. Of course, if you try very hard, you can ensure that you never see any reasonable Liberals with a nuanced point of view. Who needs nuance, though, if you can just oversimplify, generalize and congratulate yourself for making the world so easy to understand?

This is not the first time I’m catching the quoted blogger in intellectual dishonesty (this is a polite term for nasty lies.)

Why can’t some people promote their political agendas without turning into outright liars? Might that be because their position is completely untenable and they need lies to bolster it?

  1. I’ve had people tell me I ‘promoted’ or ‘coerced’ abortions by volunteering as an escort at PP. Nope, just wore an orange vest and guided people safely into the clinic during protests. I didn’t force them to be there, I just got them there with minimum interference from picketers.
    Also, Operation Rescue has just released a full list of abortion providers and “abortionist” doctors on a website. That definitely won’t end well…

    1. What fetus? “But Shvarts reiterated Thursday that she repeatedly use a needleless syringe to insert semen into herself. At the end of her menstrual cycle, she took abortifacient herbs to induce bleeding, she said. She said she does not know whether or not she was ever pregnant.”

      Are we going to police herbal remedies people take now?

      1. I suspect this art student was going for shock value, and fibbed about the whole thing. People are too gullible. This looked like a classic case of faked publicity stunt.

          – I think so, too.

  2. The real term that should be used is “pro-access to legal abortion”, not “pro-abortion”. That last term belongs to the self-styled “pro-life” crowd, who seem not to care about rates of illegal abortion, if the statements of leaders are to be taken seriously. The failure of the S-S”PL”s to promote contraception, and the active opposition to contraception by the bulk of the SSPL leadership, lead to increased unplanned and unwanted pregnancies. Illegal abortions ensue. Countries with restrictive abortion laws have higher abortion rates than the countries with relatively liberal laws – and that’s counting just the illegal abortions that get recorded (ie, the ones with complications where the woman requires medical care). So, I tend to think of the SSPLs as “pro-forced childbirth”.
