A friend of the blog writes:
It’s abortion providers day in St Paul. As a woman in St Paul, I am offended with that being a recognized day by the City council and mayor.
I do think women’s health deserves some public recognition, though. And if the city people cared about women’s health, they would focus on things other than abortion.
But, they focus on abortion. Which tells me this is more political than anything. I’m not quite sure where this is going politically, though, in a liberal city that seems to agree blindly with the people they elect.
As a conservative health care provider who understands that a ban on abortions doesn’t actually save lives (people are going to get back alley abortions if they are illegal), I do support “legal but rare”- counseling, waiting periods, adoption options that actually reduce abortions, etc. Democrats like to say they support these things, too, but then they go and specifically celebrate abortion. I can’t believe they can actually walk proudly into their public offices while supporting things like abortion providers day. There are new lows every day.
The fact that Saint Paul decided to “celebrate” abortion providers shows us it’s not just political, but it’s operating on the same basic level as one of the President’s late-night tweets. It’s there to poke a thumb in the eye of anyone who gives a fetus any moral weight, to show them who’s really boss in Saint Paul.
