In the final season of The West Wing, Matt Santos, the fictional Democratic Party presidential nominee, got into a contentious discussion about abortion with the spokesperson for the Women’s Choice Alliance, a pro-choice special interest group.
“‘Pro-choice,’” the spokesperson said, “means anyone can do what they want.”
“Yeah, but it shouldn’t mean that we’re proud of whatever they choose,” Santos replied. “Maybe all this chest-beating is the reason the Right can get away with [a negative ad on abortion], the reason why a leader of my church can exile me for not trying to impose my religion on the rest of the country.”
“And we’re surprised that there are people out there who think we’re for unlimited abortion. That there are actually voters, who are pro-choice, that think that we’re too extreme,” he added.
Seems reasonable, right? Even though abortion is legal, no one should be proud the controversial practice, which often involves women who are placed in a difficult situations where they feel they have to make such a life-changing decision.
Unfortunately, Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains is allegedly handing out awards to local affiliates that exceed the number of abortions they performed compared to the previous year. Here’s a photo of the award provided by And Then There Were None via LifeSiteNews.com.
Wow. Just wow.
