Doctor Dean, aka National Chairman of the Dems, is wanting to reshape the abortion issue. What they have always thought was a big winner for them, abortion, they are now realizing is a loser for the Democrats. If only they change the semantics, the playing field, so to speak, it can once again be the big winner for them. According to the following quotes about Howard Dean from “TwinCities.com/Pioneer Press”, which I obtained from The Q and O Blog, this is what Dean believes:
“‘I think we need to talk differently about abortion,’ the blunt-spoken physician and former Vermont governor told several hundred supporters of the Minnesota affiliate of the American Civil Liberties Union at the Minneapolis Convention Center. ‘The debate shouldn’t be about whether abortion is good or bad, Dean said. It should be about whether a woman has a right to make up her own mind. We got pushed into a corner by the Republican propaganda machine, forced to debate and defend positions that aren’t our positions,’ he said. ‘I don’t know anybody in America who’s pro-abortion.‘”
Dr. Dean knows nobody in America who is pro-abortion? Democrats – what kind of ostrich head have you as your leader? Tell the good doctor who IS pro-abortion. Tell him that your coined phrase “pro-choice” has absolutely nothing to do with the real meaning of “choice”, other than it was your choice to use that word as an euphemism for abortion. In addition, so you would not have to speak the unspeakable, “abortion”, when describing the anti-abortion side of the issue, you coined another label for them – “anti-choice”. As it happened, that phrase just never stuck and in fact it worked against the “pro-abortionistas”. People realized what a scam they were witnessing when you labeled the pro-lifers, as anti-choice. The pro-lifers, as a matter of record, believe in far more choices than do those who managed to find the right of abortion in the U.S. Constitution.
Does Dr. Dean know no feminists, no members of N.O.W.? To them abortion has become a ritual or rite of womanhood, much as is baptism for Christians. Does Dr. Dean know none of the fast living young men of today’s society, who want none of the burdens of marriage — not yet, but are too hedonistic to refrain from enjoying the pleasures thereof. As a medical man, does he not know there is an entire industry built upon the cult of abortion?
‘If I could strike the words ‘choice’ and ‘abortion’ out of the lexicon of our party, I would,’ he said. ‘The debate and the difference between the parties is we believe a woman has a right to make up her own mind about her health care, and they (Republicans) believe that (House Majority Leader) Tom DeLay and the boys in Congress should be making up that woman’s mind.'”
The Democrats, as their leader says, want to “strike the words ‘choice’ and ‘abortion’ out of the lexicon of our party”. Note that they say nothing of striking the horrible acts against nature that is the actual meaning of the words. No, they only strive to eliminate the dreadful words. When we began the abortions wars there was but one word to describe the killing of an unborn baby – abortion – which no one wanted to say or hear. The bright liberals invented a euphemism, choice. Now the liberals need to come up with another pleasant sounding word to replace the now sullied word “choice”. Ever hear of the word “life”, Dr. Dean? Everyone loves life.
The so-called right to abortion has pitted mothers against their children and women against men. It has portrayed the greatest of gifts — a child — as a competitor, an intrusion, and an inconvenience. –Mother Theresa
