Did you hear about the pro-ESCR poetry contest, won by someone who decided to blaspheme against the Eucharist in his "winning" entry? Larry D has the whole story here.
When we tend to think of Democrats as the pro-death party and Republicans as the pro-life one, we aren't remembering that an awful lot of Republicans support ESCR. True, the Democrats as a party tend to slaver ghoulishly over the prospect of killing as many unborn human beings as possible, and would like to use tax dollars for that purpose; but too many Republicans are just sort of vaguely pro-life in most situations--unless the possibility for a huge financial increase to the Medical-Pharmaceutical Complex is possible, in which case, suddenly, human embryos aren't intrinsically worthy of life anymore.
We don't have a pro-life party in America. What we have, instead, is rather like Yeats' famous quote: "The best lack all conviction, while the worst/Are full of passionate intensity." It is too easy to forget to adhere to pro-life principles when elections come around; it is too easy to brush aside at least some of the unborn and forget them, for the sake of votes and power.
We mustn't forget these little forgotten ones. We should remember them, especially as we prepare to vote in these elections.
