For peaceniks, Democrats sure have no trouble throwing the word “war” around. Jesse Jackson compared the budget impasse to the civil war and Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi believes her colleagues across the aisle have declared “war on women.”
House Speaker John Boehner promised religious leaders he would “win the war not just win a battle” over Planned Parenthood and abortion. After all, someone has to have the temerity to step forward, pull the plug on the death camps and discontinue funding organizations that pretend to care for women in one room while killing offspring in another.
Scripture quoter and crusader for the aged and reproductive rights, Nancy Pelosi sees the Republicans’ fight to defund Planned Parenthood as a “war,” and to defend abortion she seems more than willing to lace up her combat boots.
At the Feminist Majority Foundation’s Women, Money and Power Summit, Nancy Pelosi clarified the dispute: “Abortion is one issue, but contraception and family planning and birth control are opposed by this crowd too. We have a big fight on our hands, in terms of respect for women, and … what is right for our country in terms of our family decisions, in terms of Medicaid and Medicare. We have to create a drumbeat across America.”
Kindly old Grandmother Nancy Pelosi believes “respect for women…and…what is right for our country” is why Americans should be forced to bankroll an organization that destroys the lives of future Americans. Majorette Nancy proposes the creation of “a drumbeat across America” on behalf of fetal genocide. Well if ever there was a quintessentially American cause, Grandma, apple pie and funding Planned Parenthood is certainly it!
According to Nancy, the supposed war on postnatal women began earlier this year when Mike Pence (R-IN) audaciously proposed a bill in the House to cut off 40 years of funding to Planned Parenthood. The Congress made it clear that Republicans were done coercing moral people to pay for ethically repugnant abortion procedures that cost taxpayers $363 million a year and in 2009 ended the lives of 332,278 Americans.
Thus far John Boehner (R-Ohio) has said that in the budget fight his caucus has not backed “down from [their] efforts to defund Planned Parenthood.” However, Boehner admitted abortion is “a major sticking point in budget negotiations between the House GOP” and a pro-choice White House.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Barack continue to use abortion as protective armor to preserve a radical voting base, and do so with the approving applause of a political party more than willing to go to war for the right to fund America’s most celebrated abortion mill.
In the interim, Nancy apparently felt moved to officially anoint herself St. Nancy de Abortion Rights. Pelosi is speaking out and has rallied a brigade of warmongering females ready to follow her into battle. Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC) declared that refusing to fund Planned Parenthood is “the functional equivalent of bombing innocent civilians.”
The Republican budget rider that prevents DC from spending money on abortion for poor women was met by an “absolutely outraged” Norton, who also said it’s time DC told the “Congress to go straight to hell.”
Holmes said: “If …Republicans insist that, if they don’t get the whole pie they’ll take the whole country down with them…then we have got to make them pay the price.” Whoa Ellie!
There you have it – on behalf of the abortion “pie,” Nancy and company are more than willing to subject Americans to “paying the price” and the “hell” of a protracted political war, if winning makes certain that Planned Parenthood funding continues.
