A Massachusetts antiabortion group has unveiled a bill that would let individual taxpayers opt out of paying for publicly funded abortions. Under the measure, a taxpayer could choose to have whatever portion of their state taxes pays for abortion coverage directed instead to the Baby Safe Haven Law. That law allows parents to leave unwanted newborns at fire stations and other designated locations.
I LOVE this idea. Puts those Planned Parenthood ghouls in the position of saying, “We don’t want desperate mothers to have a way to unburden themselves of a baby they don’t want or can’t care for. Women should not have the choice to go to a safe location — they should be forced to do what their government and big corporations want them to do.”
Anne Fox, president of Massachusetts Citizens for Life, said the bill, one of several filed by the group for the new legislative session, would give residents who oppose abortion a way of exercising their conscience. The head of NARAL Pro-Choice Massachusetts, Andrea Miller, said she had not seen the bill but argued that tax dollars routinely go toward many things that a given taxpayer might not agree with. (AP)
Let me translate for you: “But that’s ourrrrrrrrrr money! It’s not fai-i-i-i-ir that someone was clever and enterprising enough to push for laws that a majority of citizens want! We are, and always have been, opposed to choice for Americans!”
This is the way to do it. Prayer, huge, peaceful protest, the brilliant Lila Rose with her exposés, and defund, defund, defund. Some abortionists are just plain evil, and some, I’m sure, sincerely believe they are helping women. But most of them are in it for the money, pure and simple — and they are making plenty of it. Time to cut them off.
Oh, and I love how the Globe and other media think it’s some kind of stinging insult to say “antiabortion” instead of “prolife.” Call me “antiabortion” all day long, folks. Abortion is the kind of thing that the prefix “anti” was invented for.
