The lips of the righteous know what is fitting,
but the mouth of the wicked only what is perverse. ~ Proverbs 32:10
Warning: Vulgarity ahead.
The other side has apparently determined it can no longer command attention by employing logic. As pro-life ideology begins to dominate politics as well as the thinking American mind, abortion proponents are increasingly exercising the use of shock to make their points.
The recent uptick in pro-abortion vulgarity can somewhat be traced back to Oklahoma Democrat state Senator Judy Eason McIntyre, who couldn’t deal with the passage of a personhood bill in her chamber in March. So she joined a protest holding the stately sign, “IF I WANTED THE GOVERNMENT IN MY WOMB I’D F*** A SENATOR.”
Now you can buy t-shirts.
Which is exactly what a pro-choicer known only as “O,” pictured left, did, and then became unrighteously indignant when booted off an American Airlines flight in May after refusing to turn it inside out or change it.
Abortion proponents saw this as viewpoint discrimination rather than an issue of decency. Fumed RH Reality Check Editor-In-Chief Jodi Jacobson:
But protest these laws and the War on Women with a t-shirt that gets right to the point? Let people know the basis of all of it, the people that “want government out of our lives” want to place it directly into our bodies? In a country supposedly founded on freedom of speech and expression, in which protestors can stand outside clinics harassing and threatening women and doctors, and run through every public square with gory doctored photos?…
Oh, no. You can’t do that. You can’t take that message that your body is your own anywhere. Because in the United States today, that is like taking your burqha off under the Taliban. That is “offensive,” “insulting” and “not for public consumption.”
I must momentarily digress. Jodi, please show me a photo of an abortion you think isn’t “doctored.” Show me your reality of the procedure.
I didn’t even know what the word “p***t**g” meant. Had to ask someone if it was bad enough to censor.
As a bookend to this post comes final offensiveness from another female Democrat state legislator, this one Michigan state Rep. Lisa Brown, who on the House floor on June 14 told Republicans, “I’m flattered that you’re all so interested in my vagina, but ‘no’ means ‘no,’” regarding a fetal pain bill that would ban abortion after 20 weeks with no exceptions – even for rape. Her comment got her banned from speaking on the floor for a day…
In my view this coarsening of the conversation by the other side is one big panicked temper tantrum.
