This afternoon, I attended the pro-abortion PAC EMILY’s List so called “gala reception”, with special guests Hillary Clinton, Michelle Obama, and Nancy Pelosi.
I purchased my ticket online weeks ago yet had concerns of being turned away at the door or having my video equipment and computer confiscated.
Neither happened. I picked up my ticket with no interrogations and aced security.
But, surprises were still in store….
I entered the ballroom with maybe 1,000 others to find this would be the first “gala reception” I’d ever attended with no chairs, tables, or food. Just a big empty room with a stage and a soda table in the corner.
Then, lo and behold, all of the speakers became allergic to the topic of abortion, I mean “choice.” I’d had a vision that if I made it through security with my electronic equipment intact, I might catch one of them on tape giving a sicko pro-abort speech like Barack did at last year’s Planned Parenthood PAC event.
But I don’t think Hillary or Nancy even gave “choice” its own sentence. Only Michelle did, maybe two, but nothing stirring, just a yadda yadda about the importance of government non-intrusion.
Perhaps that is the more interesting story here: avoidance of the topic. Why? Seriously, I don’t think “choice” got more than three minutes total in 1.5 hours of speeches.
If I had it to do over again, I would have spent more time outside the event with the Survivors protestors:
Pro-lifers surrounded the Code Pink girls, who appeared seriously flummoxed…
