The Orange County RegisterÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Steve Greenhut posted about the vote today in Mexico City that will give women the right to choose to have an abortion in their first 12 weeks of pregnancy. [CNN Link]
GreenhutÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s main point was that there has been a lack of pro-life, conservative outrage regarding this topic. He suggested that maybe the lack of outrage is due to the overlap in the anti-abortion and anti-Mexican sects in this country. From GreenhutÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s post:
Ã¢â‚¬Â¦given the increasing outrage and anger by conservatives in this country about illegal immigration, my cynical side wonders whether some such folks arenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t secretly cheering, or perhaps just ignoring, the likely Mexico City pro-abortion vote. You know, fewer poor Mexicans to cross the border.
IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m not going to go as far as suggesting that anti-abortion people are in favor of aborting fetuses of Mexican women, but Steve is right to point out that this lack of outrage from the Ã¢â‚¬Å“moralÃ¢â‚¬Â conservative leaders in this country suggests something.
ThereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s been silence from the right on this vote because they arenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t paying attention to anything that happens in Mexico. They are too busy picketing at day-labor centers and brainstorming on new ways to make the Minuteman organization look different from the KKK.
It is foolish to sit around and attack the symptom if you donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t even care to learn more about the disease.[Steve Greenhut's post]
