Deep insights from two writers into the state of abortion Post-Dobbs

Let me begin by encouraging you in the strongest terms to read “Pennsylvania reports most abortions in 10 years, three times more complications than in 2017,” and “Media, Democrats falsely paint pro-lifers as anti-democracy ahead of 2024 elections.”

Calvin Freiburger and Jonathon Van Maren are both passionately pro-life and gifted writers. I never come away from one of their posts thinking I’ve been short-changed. To the contrary I’m already anticipating their next story.

For example, Van Maren is positively brilliant in summarizing how the pro-abortionists (and their legion of media supporters) have responded to the 2022 Dobbs decision which, as you know, made short work [after 49 years!] of Roe v. Wade.

He writes

In response, abortion allies pursue a variety of tactics to keep the abortion industry going, such as embedding “rights” to abortion in state constitutions, easy access to abortion pills, legal protection and financial support of interstate abortion travelconstructing new abortion facilities near borders shared by pro-life and pro-abortion states, and making liberal states sanctuaries for those who want to evade or violate the laws of more pro-life neighbors. 

As an overview, that’s deserves an A+. Pro-aborts have shored up their strength in abortion-friendly states such as Illinois and Vermont and New Jersey and used deceptive campaigns to hoodwink voters into approving pro-abortion changes to their state constitutions in states where the unborn have real friends.

That, of course, is aided and abetted by various stratagems to make “access” to the abortion pill easier. (See the Biden administration’s HHS which lopped off virtually all safeguards.)

Freiburger discussed how post-Dobbs a number of states have enacted protective legislation while others had older laws enacted pre-Dobbs “triggered” by the Supreme Court decision. He writes

The Democrats intend to make support for democracy and support for abortion synonymous, and the media has already picked up on this theme. 

If you listen to the words that come rolling out of President Biden’s mouth, they are so transparently evil it takes your breath away.

At some level, I don’t honestly believe that President Biden fully grasps how dangerous it is when he casually invokes racism to “explain” what pro-lifers are about.

I remember his January 21, 2021, Inaugural Address.

The same man who specializes in demonizing his opponents that day invoked President Lincoln who on New Year’s Day 1863 signed the Emancipation Proclamation. President Lincoln said, “If my name ever goes down into history, it will be for this act and my whole soul is in it.”

Biden then said, with his typical modesty, “Today, on this January day, my whole soul is in this:

“Bringing America together.

“Uniting our people.

“And uniting our nation.

“I ask every American to join me in this cause.”

It’s enough to give cynicism a bad name.
