Socialized Medicine Is Not Pro-Choice

The Tim Tebow ad really brought the abortion issue to the forefront of the American conversation over the past couple weeks. The "pro-choice" lobby showed everyone its true colors by finding that ad outrageous.

Why wouldn't they be happy that a woman made a choice? Why wouldn't they appreciate that Tim Tebow was the result of that choice? They are pro-choice, right? Perhaps the ones that had a fit over the Tim Tebow ad are really just pro-abortion?

Grant Davies over at What We Think and Why had another epiphany about the pro-choice lobby in America while watching the Planned Parenthood response to the Tebow ad:

For his part, Joyner explains; "My daughter will always be my little girl." He goes on to say; "But I am proud everyday as I watch her grow up to be her own person, a smart, confident young woman. I trust her to take care of herself. We celebrate families by supporting our mothers, by supporting our daughters. By trusting women."

Except, of course, in all other matters concerning their health and lifestyle choices. For those decisions his daughter, mother and all other "strong and wise women" need government employees and political hacks making the tough calls. There is no way that these people could be so inconsistent in their views, right?

What a fantastic point! We need to make a political television / radio ad out of that right away! How can any person who claims to be pro-choice ever support socialized or fascist medicine? It is a fact that the Pelosi-Reid legislation in Congress does not leave it up to the woman to make her own choices about her own body. It puts those choices about her body in the hands of the government. Some consistency please?


  1. I made a post, but it disappeared. If it's like my online plane ticket reservations it will show up twice now.

    Anyway, thanks for featuring my article Wes. I returned the "link love" back to ya on this mornings post.

  2. It is amazing how these inconsistencies frequently blow by most of the population. I think a lot of us suffer from "a man hears what he wants to hear and disregards the rest." This inconsistency is not one that most people in that pro-choice pro-government healthcare takeover want to admit to. Could it be they have never thought of it?!

    Just popping by for a visit from What We Think and Why. Now who's going to get the ad campaign going?

  3. Thanks Grant! And thanks for the great revelation. That is an inconsistency we should have been hitting harder during the fiercest of the debate over health care reform if only someone had thought of it. We might yet have more opportunities- sadly to say.

    Skooks- I think I need to make some merch to get the ad campaign going one person at a time. Imagine the looks you'd get walking down the street.

  4. I stumbled on this late...I wish I had seen it back in Feb. I have been hopping up and down screaming at my pro-choice, pro-Obamacare friends that you really can't be both! Of course, they think I am the moron in the situation, but anyway, well said and I'm glad someone gets it.

  5. Thanks, Prudence! No, you really can't be both. Please share a link to this article with those friends of yours. Perhaps the image will help get the point across.
