Clean Cut Kid criticizes SDRTL

from Clean Cut Kid:

I see the South Dakota Right to Life has a new blog. I look forward to many entertaining posts from the authors.

In the meantime, I wonder when they are going to get abortion finally abolished for good?

For that matter, what are they doing to prevent abortion from happening in the first place?

Or are they only interested in using the tragedy of abortion as a political football during election years?

And what are they doing to save the "life" that is being sacrificed in Iraq? My guess is nothing. Even though nearly 2,000 "beating hearts" have been stopped in the war, they've done nothing to stop it.

Or how about saving the lives of poor people who don't have access to affordable medical care and are forced to go without it? Nothing again. They don't care about those "beating hearts".

How about supporting embryonic stem-cell research to find cures for diseases that kill hundreds of thousands of people every year? They probably aren't interested in protecting "that kind of life". Diabetes, just one disease that could be cured with this research, stops nearly 75,000 "beating hearts" every year. But you'll see South Dakota Right Life fighting this research.

Is South Dakota Right to Life interested in making birth control more accessible to women, particularly poor and minority women, to prevent abortions? My bet is they would fight any government initiative to make birth control more readily accessible to women.

I've always viewed groups like SDRTL as only being interested in using the issue for political gain and keeping women barefoot, pregnant, and in the kitchen -- you know, "like it's supposed to be". They have very little interest in "beating hearts". And I know that is excessively harsh. But it has always been painfully obvious to me that they are only interested in using a tragic choice for their political gain instead of trying to solve a serious problem.

And that is truly shameful.
