Carlin’s wonderful rant on abortion and the GOP came around on G+ recently and I had to share it. It’s absolutely true and Carlin hits it out of the park. I’ve shut a “pro-life” Christian up before on G+ by asking whether she’s adopted any of the many children that need it. Nope!
If we created a nation where every child was taken care of, by their natural parents or someone else who truly loved them, the abortion rate would drop. But the right-wing uses abortion as a prop for their anti-life policies. Words are powerful symbols and the right’s propagandists claimed the term “pro-life” and use it everywhere, and despite their consistently anti-life actions, they still are able to convince some people they are fighting for every life. The left needs to take some of these words back.
