The “pro-choice” moniker has always been at best a euphemism, at worst an utter deception perpetrated by a movement that has always had an unhealthy interest in affirming it the ultimate manifestation of self-fulfillment and autonomy to butcher a child in utero.
Those engaged on the pro-life side of this titanic, 50-year struggle for the legal recognition of human rights for unwanted, illegitimate, or handicapped children, have often and properly termed their opponents “pro-abortion.” The following rage has been anything but muted:
“I’m not pro-abortion, I’m pro-CHOICE,” has been the uniform retort.
Perhaps that’s true, but it’s intentionally generic. The question that really matters is the one that follows such an assertion: you’re pro-choice when it comes to choosing what ?
Consistently, I have found that I favor giving women far more choices than many of the angry progressives demanding the privilege to end the life of their unborn children with impunity. Unlike most leftists, I favor giving women: The choice of their doctor
The choice of their health care plan
The choice of what school to send their child (or to homeschool)
The choice of what gas guzzling vehicle to drive The choice to set their home thermostat on any temperature they prefer The choice to protect their family with a concealed handgun The choice whether to vaccinate their child (and themselves) against COVID The choice to wear a face mask when flying commercial airlines …and many, many other choices that are part and parcel of freedom.But it is true that I and many others believe that any civil society will place some limitation on the choices we humans make with our bodies. No one has, nor should they have, complete bodily autonomy. When it comes to depriving another person of their life, liberty, or property without due process of law, […]
They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
