The Choice Is…Ramen Noodles Or Abortion???
The House has defunded Planned Parenthood.
Abortion radicals are raging mad.
Raging mad that Republicans are exposing the abortion predators with story after story of criminal negligence, death, and exploitation at America’s taxpayer-subsidized death clinics.
Raging mad that Republican women dare to talk about the psychological harm and trauma to young women lured to Planned Parenthood and kept in the dark about abortion alternatives.
And mad that Republicans are describing in graphic detail the procedures used to rid the world of The Unplanned.
Most macabre abortion defense of the night so far: Earlier today, Wisconsin Democrat Rep. Gwen Moore argued that abortion was better for unplanned babies than a life “eating Ramen noodles” or “mayonnaise sandwiches.”
This is revealing in stunning fashion. Here’s a politician who has the unbridled arrogance to believe that she has the moral right to decide whether someone else’s life is worth living. She has arrogated to herself the right to determine whether another human being lives or dies based on her own dietary value system. She apparently believes that anyone who eats Ramen noodles — count most graduate students in this category — does not have a life worth living. Wow.
Perhaps if the baby were asked if she would prefer death over Ramen noodles, she just might say no, I’d like to live, thank you very much, and actually Ramen noodles aren’t all that bad. But if Gwen Moore gets her way, that baby will never get that choice.
Moore — who is up for re-election in 2012 — is a member of both the Congressional Black Caucus and Congressional Progressive Caucus. Her nanny state (progressive) creds are self-evident: In the House, Moore has earned, over the first session of the 109th Congress, 90% and higher legislative agenda approval scores from Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, the Sierra Club of Wisconsin, and the Service Employees International Union.
Moore has focused herself legislatively on traditional Democratic and progressive issues, believing that the federal government should play a significant role in the amelioration of poverty and the resolution of difficult local problems. In fact, GovTrack.US calls Moore a far-left Democrat and points to the dot on the left side of the chart to show where Moore stands among her peers in Congress.
Specifically on abortion, Moore has voted against restricting interstate transport of minors to get abortions (2005) and in favor of expanding research to more embryonic stem cell lines (2007) and allowing human embryonic stem cell research (2005). In 2009, Moore voted in favor of the Prevention First Act, which focuses on preventing pregnancy and supports emergency contraception — with all programs supported by federal dollars.
