I’m Facebook friends with my local Representative in the Iowa House.
She posted this comment on her Facebook page yesterday:
“The tragic story of the Philadelphia doctor’s abortion clinic treating employees, pregnant women, and aborted fetus’ like dirt is exactly why we need safe, legal, and compassionate family planning.”
Talk about the wrong lesson.
Abortion isn’t family planning for starters. It’s planned death. Even more, contraception fails. We have more contraception available than ever, and yet we still abort a million babies a year.
In the case of Dr. Gosnell’s clinic, the system let us down by protecting him from proper regulatory scrutiny. We can’t trust the system, because they’re in the tank for Big Abortion.
I responded to my Rep’s comment as follows:
“Respectfully, Marti, I disagree. At least two people get hurt with every abortion.”
She took my comment down.
