Congressman Jeff Fortenberry asks Hillary Clinton not to export abortion.
[h/t The Corner]
p.s. Try to imagine a Canadian politician giving this speech…
Andrea adds: I can imagine a Canadian giving this speech, actually. He deserves a standing ovation. “Imposition of our own woundedness,” “neocolonialism,” “paternalistic,” “elitist,” AND “an assault on the dignity of the poor and the vulnerable…” These are all apt phrases to describe what exporting abortion internationally would mean.
Note that in face of his eloquence, we get one reply and one reply only. Clinton’s reply can be summed up in the phrase “it must be a woman’s choice.”
And so, once again, choice trumps all, as if there were no such thing as universal values. I was just at a talk about democratic discourse and civility in the public square. But we can’t debate civilly or otherwise if the only reply I ever receive is “your views are fine for you, but not for me.”
There’s got to be something more than that to this life.by
