The Morning Briefing: Pro-Life Movement Gains Momentum and Abortion Ghouls Panic

Top O’ the Briefing

Happy Monday, dear Kruiser Morning Briefing friends. Once the conversation about rutabaga pizza begins the liver damage is irreversible.

Last Friday’s Briefing was posted a few hours before the news about Louie Anderson’s death broke. That’s a tough one-two punch for the stand-up world as the year begins. Both Bob Saget and Louie have been fixtures in comedy since I first started going on the road full-time in the late 1980s. I didn’t know Louie well but I did bump into him whenever he was working the big room at Bally’s in Las Vegas and I was working Catch a Rising Star back when it was located there. He would spend hours after the show playing the poker machines and he was very gracious the few times we talked. And, as we all know, he was a funny dude.

I sincerely hope that’s the last of the bad news for the comedy community this year.

As I was enjoying some coffee on Saturday morning this year’s local March for Life parade began passing in front of my house like it does every year. I went outside to wave to them, smile, and give them a thumbs-up. While talking to a friend later in the day I remarked that the group looked a lot bigger this year.

The pro-life movement in America has been picking up steam for a few years now. There have been some victories at the state level and the Supreme Court may soon greatly change things in favor of the pro-lifers. The momentum has got the leftist abortion freaks covered in flop sweat.

The New York Times recently tasked a team of writers to hunt down a few pre-Roe v. Wade “back-alley” stories that are intended to make young women think that they’re all going to die if there isn’t an abortion clinic on every street corner in America.

The desperation really showed in a couple of the responses that were designed to coincide with March for Life weekend. Chris covered both of the stories for us. The first one was like something from The Onion:

The pro-abortion movement relies on a certain set of arguments to make its case. It’s not a baby; it’s just a clump of cells. Pro-lifers stand in the way of reproductive freedom — or the woke version, reproductive justice. If pro-lifers would be just as in favor of the baby after it’s born, they would be consistent. And on and on they go.

We’ve heard all the arguments, but there’s a new one that will blow your mind.

Apparently, according to the newest scare cartoon from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, outlawing abortion is a big-government move.

Seriously, they went there. We’re abandoning our small-government principles if we make it more difficult to kill babies or something. Never mind that the way we’re hoping it happens is by returning more power to the states.

Because the Democrats are always horrible at social media, there’s even a bad cartoon video to go with the message.

The second story Chris wrote shows how depraved and confused the pro-aborts are:

Friday marked the annual March for Life, a pro-life rally that coincides with the anniversary of the Supreme Court decision in Roe v. Wade that unilaterally made abortion legal. My PJ Media colleague Athena Thorne wrote about the men, women, and kids who braved the cold to stand up for the unborn.

Washington, D.C.’s Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception also held the National Prayer Vigil for Life on Thursday night. While that prayer vigil was going on inside the church, a pro-abortion Catholic group projected messages of support for pro-choice Catholics on the façade of the basilica.

As I have written before, one cannot be both pro-abortion and a Roman Catholic. There is some excellent elaboration on that point in Chris’s post:

Cardinal Wilton Gregory, archbishop of the Archdiocese of Washington, issued a short statement that got straight to the point and served as both an expression of support for the pro-life cause and a sick burn inflicted on Catholics for Choice.

“The true voice of the Church was only to be found within The Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception last evening,” the statement read. “There, people prayed and offered the Eucharist asking God to restore a true reverence for all human life. Those whose antics projected words on the outside of the church building demonstrated by those pranks that they really are external to the Church and they did so at night – John 13:30.”

John 13:30 tells us that Judas left the rest of the disciples to put his betrayal of Jesus into motion at night.

The flailing on the left is a sign that, even in these bleakest of times, there’s hope that we can chase away a few dark clouds.

Let’s hope it keeps up.
