Well we know that the Democrat National Convention will be hosting the “pro-death” women at its convention in Charlotte, North Carolina shortly. But now MoveOn.org is also putting out a ridiculous attack ad that says the GOP wants to send women to the back alley for abortions.
The ad is a disgusting portrait of a woman walking down a black and white checkered floor to a closet. Presumably we are to believe this woman is not only pregnant, but has been raped as well. As she open the closet door, she stares at a hanger. The obvious intention of the ad is that the GOP is going to ‘force’ this woman to either have the baby or use the coat hanger to murder her unborn child.
It’s a disgusting and revolting advertisement.
To be fair here, Paul Ryan is, from all I have a seen, a serious and thorough pro-life advocate, even in the event of rape of incest. I applaud that stand. It is one I hold as well.
The ad is a distortion of the reality though. Women will always have a choice no matter if abortions are banned or legal. They can always choose to murder their children or have them.
As I expounded upon this to a friend in explaining the issue as related to rape. Because a woman was sinned against and a crime committed against her, does that then lead to her to have a “right” to sin and commit a crime against another (her unborn baby). I think not. However, what never is actually dealt with is what happens to the rapist. Why are they not tried and executed instead of forcing the victim and her family, as well as, the other taxpayers of society to house them, feed them and clothe them and in many cases give them opportunity to come back into society? Where is justice?
Well we don’t expect Democrats to be just in what they are promoting in this ad for sure on either Romney or Ryan. Not one person would “force” anyone to do anything by upholding the sanctity of life. Before anyone comments on my stand on the death penalty understand the difference. In one case an individual takes into their own hands a decision to take a life, apart from authority to do so. In the other case, God has granted authority to those who are civil magistrates to deal justly with people and to punish evildoers.
As we have seen already in this race, the Obama campaign has no problem in declaring that his opposition is responsible for a man’s wife death of cancer and other bizarre and outrageous claims. Barack Obama should decry this type of ad, but as he didn’t rebuke the ‘cancer’ ads, I’m not going to hold my breath that he will do that on this one.
However, I will say that if the GOP wants to actually deal with the issue, they should have Barack Obama’s words playing concerning infanticide in an ad to let people know where he really stands on the issue.
The real issue here is that the GOP needs to not only be pro-life, they need to be pro-active and they don’t need to apologize for either.
