Fights Lies On
She's Nancy (God have mercy on her soul) Keenan, the president of NARAL Pro-Choice America, and she's very, very upset that the SCOTUS said she and her friends couldn't keep cutting barely pre-born babies into pieces.
She can't even get the name of the law SCOTUS reviewed right. The court upheld the Partial Birth Abortion Ban Act of 2003, but in the email she sent around today she called it "the Federal Abortion Ban," leaving out the part about cutting babies into pieces while they're in the birth canal. Oops.
That little oversight lets the Death Goddess get down to her real business: Raising money.
By upholding the Federal Abortion Ban in its entirety, the Supreme Court has not only supported an abortion ban with no exception for a woman's health, it has given the green light to the anti-choice movement's plan to outlaw abortion entirely. (emphasis in original)Would that it were so, but we all know the decision was narrow and Roe and Casey are still the law of the land, and will be for some time to come. Having raised the over-stated threat, Keenan suspects there might be an open pocketbook out in email land, so she provides a link to a page that suggests payments of $50, $75, $100, $500 or "other," but chides, "Minimum payment $5." The poor mothers who NARAL says they're watching out for better pony up the $50 minimum or face recrimination.
Lest anyone think the villains in all this are the abortion doctors and the groups that fight to keep their blood-letting legal, the never subtle Keenan included a photo with her email. No, it wasn't a photo of an abortion being performed, or an ultrasound of a fully developed pre-born soon to be cut apart. No, it was this:
Oh, that's right. This is all about white males. How foolish of me not to realize that sooner.
