We just covered the 2013 March For Life, and by all accounts it was a huge success. However, the battle for the soul of our nation will be continuing for some time.
As evidence of this, below is the eight-zillionth example of the incongruous mental gymnastics the Left has to perform in order to justify abortion to themselves. This ‘Ode to Abortion‘ comes via everyone’s favorite racist, Touré, and is from just this past weekend:
Let’s recap the genius that is Touré, shall we?
- Says that he watched his second child (“that boy”) “grow inside her” and he saw “how human they are”, and further admits that his “lifelong belief in abortion rights” was “jostled”.
- Yet Touré then uses this to say the experience inexplicably led him to a renewing of his belief in abortion rights, because a woman has a “right to control her body“.
If it is indeed LIFE inside a woman’s body, then basic logic dictates that it didn’t arrive there by accident or by some mysterious unfortunate circumstance (unless by rape or incest, which accounts for between 1-2% of the more than 1,000,000 abortions performed each year). There is a single conscious, deliberate act (rhymes with ‘vex‘) which causes that life to begin. At the risk of pointing out the obvious, a woman’s “right to choose” pretty much happens THEN, not later.
This isn’t even a “faith” thing: a belief in the Almighty certainly helps but is not strictly necessary here. As Ed points out over at HotAir, “Plenty of atheists oppose abortion, too, on the basis of innate human rights to life“. This is about merely following the facts of basic biology.
As if to deliberately further compound his idiocy, Touré then said this:
“I thank God and country that when I fell into a bad situation, abortion was there to save ME, and keep me on a path toward building a strong family I have now. And I pray that safety net stays in place“.
So in the same speech where he says he wants abortion to be “rare”, he then celebrates it being available when he and his girlfriend used it as de facto birth control. Huh? This is all the proof anyone needs that those on the Left are incapable of cogent thought when it comes to an honest examination of their ideology.
And for what it’s worth, I somehow doubt that God is all too thrilled to have Touré invoking His name in this particular ‘prayer’.
Call it a hunch.
We should be heartened by the overwhelming number of young folks who were present at the various Marches For Life this year, as this portends an inevitable end to this abominable act. But we have much work still to do to hasten its demise.
We need as many people as possible to continue to stand up for Life, every day, to assist in changing the hearts and minds of our nation. As the video above illustrates, the Tourés of the world will never allow themselves to admit the utter illogic of their ‘belief’.
As with so much of what is wrong with our world, it’s up to us to see this through. All we have to do is have the courage to have an honest discussion on the topic.
