Back in the old days, abortion enthusiasts used to say that killing a baby should be “safe, legal, and rare.” The idea was that abortion should be a last resort. They didn’t want to seem too bloodthirsty, but they still wanted to keep the door open in case you really, really need that kid dead.
Well, forget about all that. The ruse is over. The veil has been torn away. Now the 2nd-place contender in the Democratic Party’s 2020 presidential race is flatly calling for abortion on demand, and he’s even citing the United States Constitution to back him up.
I admit, I’m not a constitutional scholar like Bernie obviously is. But I guess he’s talking about the 14th Amendment? People who really, really hate babies have argued that making a woman bring a child to term is depriving her of liberty without due process. Of course, killing the baby undoubtedly deprives the baby of liberty, which is why abortion freaks vehemently insist it’s not actually a human being. It’s just a “fetus.” Which is another word for “baby.” If they admit to themselves that they’re killing a person, if they concede to reality, it destroys their whole argument.
That’s why they don’t want to talk about Kermit Gosnell. That’s why they hate James O’Keefe. The ugly reality of abortion reminds them that they’re actually the bad guys, and the cognitive dissonance is excruciating.
And Bernie is calling for the government to fund this baby-killing. After all, if it’s a right, you shouldn’t have to pay for it yourself. Makes sense, right?
It’s like I always say: Democrats want Republicans to shut up, and Republicans want Democrats to keep talking. I strongly encourage Bernie Sanders and all the Bernie Bros to keep saying this crap. Keep giving people an excuse to vote for the other guy, even if it’s that guy.
Imagine looking back at 2016 and thinking you lost because you weren’t radical enough. Dems are hilarious!
