Iowa City is perhaps the most liberal town in Iowa.
Home to the University of Iowa, from which all three of my children graduated, it is a community comfortable with their #1 rank for per capita abortions in Iowa.
Carly Fiorina stepped into the lion’s den yesterday and not surprisingly, was confronted by a pro abortion detractor.
You can watch the exchange above. The audio quality isn’t great, but if you listen closely, the abortion advocate is no match for Carly. True to form, the abortion advocate pivots and demands to know what Carly plans to do with all those babies if they’re not aborted.
Think about the clash ideologies on display. The liberal demands to know, “well, if you won’t let us kill a million kids a year, what are going to do with them after they’re born?”
The suggestion is, of course, that the mother and father have zero responsibility for their child. But even more, a statement like this is a “lazy slander of the pro life movement,” which is a great title of an article which refutes liberals’ contention.
Pro lifers are engaged with helping mothers, dads, babies, toddlers, kids, families and communities from conception to natural death.
They’re doing it outside of government. They’re doing it with private dollars.
The Catholic Church, in particular, donates a shocking amount of man-hours, dollars, and love into helping children and moms throughout the world.
Abortion advocates, like the woman who confronted Carly, slander the pro life movement with patently false statements suggesting pro lifers don’t help kids after they’re born.
Thanks to Carly Fiorina for her strong, clear response to the misguided abortion zealot.
