Earlier this week I actually watched - in unbelief - the women of The View discuss the issue of a woman being required to view an ultrasound of her baby before choosing to abort the child. Their misplaced compassion for the mother was indeed incredible, but what really struck me is their obvious denial of the good work connected with the pro-life movement. Especially as Whoopi went on a rant describing how all those picketers tell these poor girls they shouldn't get an abortion, but none of those picketing steps up to say, "We'll take your baby." "We'll take care of you and help you."
Is she nuts? She was raised Catholic, she knows the Catholic Church is in the forefront offering help to pregnant women. Catholic organizations beg women to have their children, promising help - money, food, clothing, shelter, and and even offering to take the child, providing adoption services, and so on. Lapsed Catholic Joy Behar is just as bad - they all know the Church offers to help and will take the child - no questions asked...
JOY BEHAR: It’s very totalitarian in my opinion. I mean, it smacks of forcing somebody to confront something that they have already decided they don’t want to deal with.
The liberal women on The View, Wednesday, shrieked at the “totalitarian” decision by a Texas judge to uphold a law requiring women to look at an ultrasound before having an abortion. Co-host and journalist Barbara Walters found the legal ruling– and not the act of abortion itself– to be “heartbreaking.”
Regarding the ruling, left-wing comedienne Joy Behar spewed, “It’s very totalitarian in my opinion. I mean, it smacks of forcing somebody to confront something that they have already decided they don’t want to deal with.” Rather than focus on the actual abortion, Walters lectured, “Then to have to go and be forced to hear, to see the fetus, to hear the heartbeat, to put more guilt on you, I think is heartbreaking.”
Walters continued, declaring that the decision to “give up a child that is obviously unwanted… is such a tremendous decision, it’s involved with so much fear of what you’re doing and guilt.”
It was left up to token conservative Elisabeth Hasselbeck to make some obvious points, noting that if you were going to have “a cyst removed or tooth extracted…you would never go through any medical procedure without looking at an ultrasound, seeing an X-ray.”
As for Behar’s definition of “totalitarianism,” she’s apparently unaware that in many communist and actual dictatorial countries, women are forced to get abortions. - Finish reading here.
