Why pro-life politics is hypocritical

May 10, 2009 at 2:34 pm 2 comments

First of all, this is not to bash your belief if you are “pro-life.”  The criticism is of the politicians who use this use to win elections.

Do Republicans really want abortion outlawed?  No.  Why not?

1) If they did, there would be no one-issue elections.

2) They’ve had plenty of chances to, but still haven’t.

Now former President W is seen as the Christian president and the religious right loves him.  Did he outlaw abortion?  They had both houses of Congress, the presidency, and the supreme court.  The truth is they want this issue to remain so that they can always have something to oppose.

How can the religious right have no problem with Bush’s pro-life stand when he presided over about 150 death penalties while governor of Texas.  At least 9 have been found to be innocent AFTER THEY WERE EXECUTED.  Guess what color most of them were… Black.

Real LIVE human beings versus:

There is this outcry for the protection of innocents, of pre-blastocyst zygotes, but what about the INNOCENT black people being put to death under Bush’s tenure?  There would be no outcry of protest from Notre Dame if Bush was speaking.

Nope.  Simply because of that ONE issue, that political issue, a president is hated or admired.

Then you have new Catholic convert Newt Gingrich (who I think will be the Republican’s man in 2012) not only calling Obama anti-life, but anti-family as well.  I suppose the wars that Bush started, or the deaths he presided over as governor of Texas, don’t qualify as anti-life!

Gingrich, a Republican, was responding to criticism last week from Archbishop Raymond Burke, who is the prefect of the Apostolic Signatura, the Vatican’s highest court.

‘The proposed granting of an honorary doctorate at Notre Dame University to our president, who is so aggressively advancing an anti-life and anti-family agenda, is rightly the source of the greatest scandal,” Burke said.
