Some people are getting it. Liberals, even – to their eternal shame liberal catholics – are hijacking pro-life language as a way of promoting strict gun-control as if it were a pro-life issue. What they are really trying to do is silence pro-lifers. Liberals see those who defend the right to be born as the foundational pro-life issue in the same way that they view those who uphold the 2nd Amendment: stupid, knuckle-dragging throwbacks who cling to their guns and religion. Thus, their fusion of the gun-control debate with their hijacking of pro-life language is a tactic to silence those who believe that we have a right to be born in the first place. Mark my words. This is what they are doing.
I was very pleased to see this video, which turns the sock inside out on the hijackers.
REQUEST FROM FR. Z: I want everyone who participates in the March For Life to take photos of the pro-unborn banners carried by the contingents from the National Catholic Reporter… from the LCWR… from the Catholic Health Association… from the Nuns on the Bus….
Let me help them with their banner slogan, since they are not used to this concept:
NATIONAL CATHOLIC REPORTER/LCWR/etc.
- Pro-Woman, Pro-Life
- Abortion Hurts Women
- Equal rights for unborn women
