Besides, I thought the pro-aborts insisted on being referred to as pro-choice. But how can they maintain a shred of intellectual honesty in this matter when they want to force unwilling institutions to provide abortions? Keep in mind that for the most part we're not talking about health issues here, but elective abortions.

These same people who steadfastly claim they are merely pro-choice -- as if they are neutral on the issue -- are the ones who vigorously back institutions and groups that seem to discourage mothers from having their babies.

If these groups and their likeminded advocates and servants in government were for promoting choice, they would inform women of the statistical correlation between abortion and breast cancer and the likelihood that pregnant women who have abortions will suffer emotional or psychological damage as a result.

"That's ridiculous," you say. "No one would want to encourage undecided pregnant women to have an abortion."

I agree that it's ridiculous, but nonetheless true. Some radical feminists encourage abortion, as opposed to "choice," because they view abortion as a sacrament -- a paranoid symbol of their collective political power, as if the repeal of woman suffrage is right around the corner. They obviously believe that a substantial reduction in abortions would result in a diminution in their power.

That's why they don't warn women of the potential health risks associated with abortion and that's why they are willing to use the coercive power of government to force unwilling providers to perform abortions. If they were pro-choice, they would allow health care providers to make their own choices.

These pro-aborts are also usually people who most loudly profess their belief in a pure separation of church and state, presumably because they don't want the state forcing its values down its citizens' throats. Yet they have no hesitation in using the government to force this "value" down our throats.

Liberal bullies like Senator Feinstein call measures to curtail their egregious abuses of power as egregious abuses of power. But as usual, they have it completely backward.

If the expected bill to repeal this provision comes before Congress for a vote, Republicans must stick to their guns and slam it down with a decisive majority.
