Where, oh, where are the prolife democrats?

Not so dynamic duoLifenews has a good article about last night’s perfidy perpetrated in full view of the American public. Pro-life Democrats. Yeah, right. I thought that was a contradiction in terms a couple of years ago when I experienced an awakening and realized I could never think of myself as a Democrat again. And I was right! I still shudder to think that I ever voted for the party that uses the image of an @ss to represent itself. But I did. I was an idiot. I’m not saying that the Republican party is perfect, far from it. If they had been more pro-actively pro-life all along, we might be in a much better situation right now. (Song verse at end of this post.)

Phyllis Schlafly, president and founder of the conservative grassroots public policy organization Eagle Forum, said Stupak’s “sellout” revealed the “myth of the pro-life Democrat.”

“Stupak and his Democrat followers have now clarified that you cannot be pro-life and be a Democrat. If abortion was truly their biggest issue, they wouldn’t willfully align themselves with the Party of Death,” she said.

“This vote will expose the myth of the ‘pro-life Democrat.’ With this single vote, the Democratic Party will divide our nation into the Party of Death and the Party of Life, and future elections will never be the same,” she concluded. — Democrats for Life Sole Pro-Life Group Defending Pro-Abortion Bill, Stupak

I have rather strong feelings about the betrayal of the pro-life cause by Bart Stupak and pro-(cough)-life buds in the Democratic party. And I composed a little ditty in honor of them just now. Those who remember the show Hee Haw are invited to sing along with me at the top of your lungs. Here goes. Ahem!

Where, oh, where are the pro-life democrats?
Fleein’ from voters chasin’ ’em with bats!
The voters cheered for ’em,
but the Stupe just ignored ’em.
One word from Obama and tthhpppt! he was gone!

Thank ya, thank ya verra much. Argh. If I think of more verses, I’ll post ’em. Consider yourself forewarned.

About Disciple

I am a pro-life activist, blogger, writer, poet, singer songwriter, musician, photographer, nerd, bookworm and Mac fan. I have two dogs, one of whom is well-travelled. (I had three for a while after adopting a senior dog, but he has now passed away, and the pack is back to two girl dogs. One was born after, the days of mammoth road trips.) And the most important thing is: I was received into Holy Mother Church in 1996 and, through the grace of God, I love Christ and His Church more with every passing day. Thanks be to God!

    I’m so sad about all of this. I’ve written a new anti-abortion post on my site: http://jwwartick.com/2010/03/23/abortion-not-logical/

    I reissued my challenge. I challenge any pro-choice individual to make their case and see the implications. I issued the same challenge before, and no one dared, despite hundreds of views.

    I pray this atrocity will end.

      It is sad. Horribly sad. Sunday night I watched the proceedings, praying and praying that these politicians would wake up and realize what they were doing. I was proud of the Republicans for standing together in unity. Although I’m not so naive as to believe that they all voted against it for the right reasons, any more than I believe that all the Democrats who voted against it did so for the right reasons; some just thought it didn’t go far enough!

      A Patriot's History of the United StatesI cried a lot that night. But I woke up the next morning ready to take a stand. Ready to fight the Good Fight. I bought a new book this weekend, well, not a new book, but new to me: A Patriot’s History of the United States. I’m studying the Constitution and American history and I’m going to do everything I can to get the word out to people that some things are right, some things are wrong, and we can’t afford to allow our country to go down the path it is currently on.

      The passage of Scripture I’ve quoted below is one that I am turning to more and more now, in these “times that try men’s souls” (Thomas Paine, the American Crisis).

      Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints.

      Pray also for me, that whenever I open my mouth, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains. Pray that I may declare it fearlessly, as I should. — Ephesians 6:10-20.
