Planned Parenthood's Grand Hypocricy

“He wears a mask, and his face grows to fit it.” George Orwell

“The louder he talked of his honor, the faster we counted our spoons.” Ralph Waldo Emerson

“And what sort of lives do these people, who pose as being moral, lead themselves? My dear fellow, you forget that we are in the native land of the hypocrite.” Oscar Wilde

“Those who plead their cause in the absence of an opponent can invent to their heart's content, can pontificate without taking into account the opposite point of view and keep the best arguments for themselves, for aggressors are always quick to attack those who have no means of defence.” Christine de Pizan

Defending the Indefensible

The radical Senate Dems are veering into an election year danger zone with their push to lift all regulations and restrictions on the multi-billion dollar a year abortion industry. They want to restrict and regulate just about everything else in sight--but when it comes to serious surgeries for late term child-killing, they want to avert their gaze while defending the indefensible.

Connecticut's way-off-the-deep-end senator, Richard Blumenthal, is leading a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on a bill that would override all state laws aimed at reeling in the abuses of dangerous late-term abortion mills like Kermit Gosnell's notorious "House of Horrors" in Philadelphia.  

In 2011, Gosnell and several of his employees were charged with eight counts of murder,  24 felony counts of performing illegal surgical procedures, and 227 misdemeanor counts of violating Pennsylvania's informed consent law in a flithy, understaffed, and woefully antiquated child-killing mill.

Blumenthal's bill, which already has the support of nearly two-thirds of senate Democrats, would make it easier for unscrupulous profiteers like Gosnell to operate legally and without the pesky intrusion of occupational and medical safety regulations that all other surgical clinics must follow.  Indeed, the law would eradicate restrictions in at least a dozen states where abortions are carefully monitored to make sure that they are at least relatively safe.  

Not surprisingly, the New York Times editorial board has enthused over the bill--as have many Obamaphiles on the loony Left.

But, the majority of Americans still actually favor restrictions on dangerous abortion surgeries, leaving the Democratic default position on the issue--unrestricted access to elective abortion--increasingly out of step, to say nothing of increasingly grotesque.
