The murder of Dr. George Tiller in Kansas and subsequent comments from anti-abortion people have made it very clear that they care nothing about any post-partum human, the sanctity of the church, or the constitution and laws of the United States, and, since they murder lawful citizens and blow up buildings, they really are indistinguishable from other terrorists. While I'd like to see all the supporters of anti-abortion violence hauled of to Gitmo, what I find most disturbing is that the so-called pro-life advocates obviously don't give a crap about what happens to any life after it has left the womb.
An on-line forum my wife follows contained a thread about abortion attitudes and after a lot of the usual back and forth some one posted this:
"In every abortion thread I've ever been apart of I always ask the same questions and get ignored...
If you are anti-abortion how many children have you adopted or will you adopt? Do you donate money to helping children who have been given up by their parents?
Does anyone know the statistics of how many anti-abortion people adopt children in the US every year?
If you are going to offer no solution to the problem...
Because really, who is going to take care of these unwanted children? The already overburdened system?"
As predicted, all those previously chatty pro-lifers suddenly forgot how to use a keyboard and I don't think it was because they all rushed off to adopt a child. Most of them just want to spit venom and brag about their moral superiority but when the living, breathing children that their actions created needs help, they're too busy picketing clinics and threatening staff to step up to the plate.
A little post-script: My wife has a cousin who actually walks the walk. He and his family are pro-life evangelicals who have adopted a lot of these unwanted children, so they're not all hypocrites, but this cousin is obviously a rare exception to norm.
