“Women’s Health” – A Term Owned by Liberals
No matter your position on the subject, you have to admit that liberals, progressives and others on the left have done a very good job of connecting the supposed right to unfettered abortions by almost all women to the idea that abortion is one of the greatest health issues facing women today.
In this article from Townhall.com, Jonah Goldberg breaks the link between abortion and women’s health – Abortion Rights Not Synonymous with Women’s Health.
“Even the most ardent pro-life activist readily concedes that there are instances when an abortion is in the interest of the mother’s health. But it is bizarre to suggest that women’s health and abortion rights are interchangeable. The biggest killer of women is heart disease, followed by cancer, then stroke. I couldn’t find “lack of a timely abortion” on the CDC list.”
Goldberg also speaks to the ironic notion that liberals always preach about old white men interfering with a woman’s body when it comes to abortion but says nothing about the draconian policies of Obamacare or the suffocating nannystate being imposed by emperor of New York, Michael Bloomberg.
Conservatives want to leave it to women to make their own choices: about what to eat, whether to smoke, how fast they can drive, whether they can own a gun, etc. Many conservatives would also like to see women live long enough for the chance to make those decisions, rather than be snuffed out in utero.
