What do Susan Sarandon, Tim Robbins, Ed Asner, Joanne Woodward, Jane Fonda, Alice Walker, Al Sharpton and Babs Streisand (just to name a few) all have in common? When they are not busy advocating peace, they are advocating violence.
The signers of the "Not In Our Name" (NION) anti-war declaration are telling our country that the weapons of mass destruction crisis with Hussein can and should be solved without violence. Meanwhile they are all for solving the challenge of an unplanned pregnancy with one of the most sanguine, mutillating forms of violence available.
Babs et al might want to check out the Center for Bioethical Reform's website. "Non-violent" Americans could stand to be reminded that "THIS IS ABORTION."
Another beauty on NION's site is a James Nachtwey (photojournalist) quote: "Any picture of war seems to be like a plea to stop it. There are very few war pictures that endorse war."
The same could be said of abortion pictures.
Don't get me wrong, folks. I love a good peacenik, but for God's sake be consistent. If solving challenges by killing an Iraqi citizen is inappropriate what kind of solution is disemboweling an American child?
At a NION blab-a-thon Sarandon got all choked up as she claimed:
"...the U.S. government has hijacked our pain, fear and loss... to spread profit at the cost of human life." Good grief, lady, do you even hear your abortion-advocating self? Celebrities and politics...ugh.
In the last 15 years, Planned Parenthood, the nation's number one abortion provider, has made over $454 million of pure profit. The industry has definately hijacked our pain, fear and loss to spread profit at the cost of human life. It's all about the dough.
The NION "peace-loving" celebs who support the utter violence of abortion do so in the name of choice and in the name of women. To them I would like to say:
