Liberals Freaks Out Over “Thousands More Births”

Sometimes it’s the most casual of comments which give the most insight.

That happened on Monday as the world was combing through the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) score on the American Health Care Act (AHCA); House Republicans’ attempt to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act (ACA), better known as “Obamacare.”

While many focused on the potential increase in the number of uninsured the proposed legislation could have, others focused on what the sudden removal of federal funding for Planned Parenthood would do. The nation’s leading abortion provider receives about a half-billion dollars from American taxpayer through a variety of government programs annually and is estimated to perform over 320,000 abortions annually.

This potentiality sent shockwaves among the most The most telling observation, which quickly went viral was that of Cathleen Decker and the Washington Post. Both Decker, a politics analyst and columnist for the Los Angeles Times, and the Post used nearly the exact same wording:

From there the phrase “thousands of births” or “thousands more births” took on a life of its own; particularly among the press and liberal politicians; like Wisconsin’s own state Senator Jon Erpenbach (D-Madison)

It soon became a repeated phrase throughout social media. Responses varied, but they certainly fell along similar lines of thinking depending on one’s position on the abortion debate. With liberals reacting as though House Republicans had sentenced low-income Americans into a life of poverty by having a child which could have been aborted at a Planned Parenthood.

Conservatives, on the other hand, mocked their liberal counterparts who clear come off as “horrified” at prospect of more children wandering the planet and people having to face up to the responsibly of actually having to take care of them.

Others pointed out the twin twists of the Left’s cruel logic. First, that they are essentially rooting for the murder of thousands of children annually, all to the alter of “Choice.” Second, that it openly showcases how many on the Left know what Planned Parenthood does as a business model, and either simply ignore it or feign ignorance for political expedience.

 

In the 1992 Presidential Campaign, then-Arkansas Gov. Bill Clinton, as a way to tell the American people the Democratic Party was no longer extremists on abortion, said that he would prefer the procedure be “Safe, legal, and rare.” 25 years later, the average liberal activist or Democratic politician are horrified that children might actually be born into this world.

Much has changed.
