Evil And Cheap

A reader sends along this link:
Be a Part of Defeating South Dakota's Abortion Ban!

With less than two months until Election Day, South Dakotans are neck in neck in the fight of their lives to protect reproductive freedom. Voters will be heading to the polls on November 4th to decide whether to ban virtually all abortions in the state. This is not the first time an abortion ban has appeared on the ballot. As many of you know, two years ago South Dakota voters defeated a similar ban.

The Campaign for Healthy Families needs your help to persuade South Dakotans to vote against the abortion ban. The American Civil Liberties Union of Minnesota will be sponsoring volunteers to go to South Dakota and talk to voters.

Join us the weekend of October 3rd- 5th in Sioux Falls, South Dakota

We're looking for volunteers who can arrive in Sioux Falls late Friday afternoon. We will phone bank Friday evening, knock on doors, and talk to voters all day Saturday and again on Sunday before traveling back Sunday afternoon (leaving Sioux Falls at 4 p.m.).

Travel, and most meals (breakfast, lunch, and dinner, including vegetarian options) will be provided. There will also be lots of hot chocolate, coffee, and cookies for those hitting the streets and turning the tide in this critical election effort.

I don't know about the rest of you, but if I were selling my soul to the devil to make sure that babies in South Dakota will still be slaughtered on the altar of Choice as an offering to the powers of darkness, if I were participating in such a wicked, hideous, and evil campaign as to go door to door trying to convince other people that baby-killing is some kind of fundamental right and that the murder of the unborn should stay legal in a state I don't even live in, I'd want--literally, now, I'm not swearing--a Hell of a lot more than travel, meals, and hot chocolate and cookies.

It profits a man nothing if he gain the whole world and loses his soul; it's pretty darned stupid to trade one's immortal soul for a few snacks and a trip to South Dakota.

"The Campaign for Healthy Families"

Are they f***ing kidding us? Where is George Orwell when you need him.

Amen.

Standing up and applauding for your statement on this.

Possibly inappropriate, but I laughed out loud at your last sentence. Reminiscent of "But for Wales?" (I think it was Wales) in A Man for All Seasons. No offense to South Dakota.

Thanks, Maclin! :)
