The Morning Rant

"So everybody who is sad because the Democrats allied themselves with some traitorous Republicans to thwart the cloture vote on a bill that would protect babies born alive after a botched abortion should not lose heart. Like Andrew Klavan, who misread the enactment of the NY "no abortion shall be illegal in this state" law with pro-infanticide comments made by the lackwit governor of Virginia to complain that the progs are moving the Overton window in a direction favorable to them. But I don't see that this is the case. I think the opposite is true. I think the 'born alive' bill would not have been possible 5 or even 10 years ago, and now we have the Democrats and the Republican senators who voted no on cloture on record as being pro-infanticide. Also, the governor of Virginia is limited by statute to one term, and thanks to the blackface scandal, Northam's career is pretty much cooked, just like public sympathy for Jussie Smollett. I think they're getting desperate. They know they're losing. The pro-life side is winning. Yes, progress will be slow. Yes, there will be setbacks, like what happened in NY, but 5 other states are trying to pass bills that will outlaw abortion if a fetal heartbeat can be detected. Of course, politics is downstream from culture, which is why it is encouraging to know that in addition to the film about Kermit Gosnell, two other pro-life movies, 'Unplanned' and 'Roe vs. Wade', are scheduled for release this year. Again, this would have been unheard of 5 or 10 years ago. This is evidence that the pro-life side is gaining cultural strength. The more people learn about what abortion actually entails, the more likely they are to oppose it. So all we have to do is tell the truth."
