…Really ugly. Zealots on the pro-choice side are the masters of spin. Fetus, products of conception, “a woman’s right to choose”…to choose what exactly? They’ll never outright say.
Now they are spinning one woman’s loss of her baby as an abortion, simply because she’s a politician’s wife and they want to claim her husband is a hypocrite.
Some blogger is asserting that when Karen Santorum, wife of candidate for the Republican nomination to run for President Rick Santorum, lost her baby because she was about to lose her own life in a difficult pregnancy, that it was a second trimester abortion.
They’re trying to make it very “confusing.” It’s a technicality or semantics–no difference between what happened to her and abortion.
Intentionality matters. It matters in areas unrelated to abortion. If you are driving down the street and hit someone entirely by accident, you’ll be treated differently than if you geared up, aimed, and deliberately ran someone over.
When a baby dies while attempting to save the mother’s life, that’s not abortion.
I must say, bloggers like that make it no surprise that fewer and fewer decent people enter into politics.
Watch, however, as the blogger attempts to show she has compassion:
It is revolting that Rick and Karen Santorum choose to stigmatize and harass those of us who, as they did, grieve over the loss of a possible child in the second trimester.
The spin never ends. Ugly, just ugly.by
