Conservatives Love Sex

We really, really do. I promise. AFF Brainwash's David Freddoso says that it's the sabotage of sex we oppose. I concur. He concludes:

Change the Debate

Mr. White finishes by referencing a recent anonymous Washington Post piece by a 42-year-old married woman who claims that the unavailability of the abortifacient "Plan B" pill somehow forced her to abort her child. He quotes Norm Ornstein as stating, "As you see more stories like that, I think it's going to change the nature of the debate."

I agree. I also remember a similar piece in The New York Times by Amy Richards about how she killed two of the triplets in her womb because of the lifestyle change she feared they might induce: "[N]ow I'm going to have to move to Staten Island. I'll never leave my house because I'll have to care for these children. I'll have to start shopping only at Costco and buying big jars of mayonnaise."

Oh, the horror.

Both of these stories will probably affect the debate by awakening someone, somewhere to the appalling, selfish and callous attitude they manifest. This represents the ugly side of the trivialization of sex, but also the work that pro-lifers have to do and that only they appear willing to do. Today, a child has become a bothersome burden, to be disposed of for the sake of convenience using some improbable and ad hoc rationalization that his life would have been lousy anyway.

Isn't that the argument in India where millions of girls die because being a girl sucks? Yup. Told ya it's an Amercan problem, too.
