There Is No Rational Argument

“Here’s a Tweet from Chris Hayes, an MSNBC host and pro-choice radical:

Better term for ‘anchor babies’ is ‘babies.’ Or, alternately, ‘tiny humans to be cherished and valued.’

— Christopher Hayes (@chrislhayes) August 19, 2015

Tiny humans to be cherished and valued, Chris? I agree. But I think our significant disagreement comes with the application of this concept. You believe the tiny, valuable, cherished humans should be legally eligible for summary execution; I, on the other hand, tend to think ‘cherished’ and ‘valued’ people should be afforded basic protections against torture and murder.

But Chris isn’t the only liberal suddenly discovering an affection for ‘tiny humans’:

They’re called babies. https://t.co/VyJJA26OVl

Yes. They’re called babies. Unless they’re in a Planned Parenthood clinic, in which case they are, alternatively, ‘tissue,’ ‘product,’ or ‘profit.’”

The cognitive dissonance on this has been astounding, however, there is hope. As one of my more liberal-leaning friends on FB put it: “I can be progressive politically and still think that Planned Parenthood is killing babies”. So it’s not all progressives that are willing to sweep this very obvious (if you are brave enough to challenge your conclusions and actually watch the videos) tragedy under the rug. The secret is getting out, thankfully. It is becoming more clear that the people who say that PP is doing nothing wrong are self-identifying as the people who have also not watched all the videos. And yes, the unedited versions are available complete online, so the whole “but they’re edited!” meme only works if you don’t want to face the truth. We are allowing the dismemberment of babies as a culture. Not one-or-two-celled blastocysts: fully formed and viable human beings. And we have become inured to it.

God forgive us. No more.
