Back Alley Bureaucracy

Mark Steyn, who was recently charged for hate speech in Canada, has nailed it with this article, Big Government’s Back Alley over at his website, SteynOnline.

In short, Mr. Steyn writes about the hypocrisy of our times, specifically related, (or at least what we’ve read of him!), to issues of human rights.  He’s often writing on the absurdity of government bureaucracies, with this essay on the state licensing of abortionists who proponents wail about getting rid of back alley abortions only to see governments keep silent as murderous licensed doctors do what they want, when they want.  Here’s the heart of the story:

“This is a remarkable moment in American life: A man is killing actual living, gurgling, bouncing babies on an industrial scale – and it barely makes the papers. Had he plunged his scissors into the spinal cord of a Democrat politician in Arizona, then The New York Times, ABC, CBS, NBC and everyone else would be linking it to Sarah Palin’s uncivil call for dramatic cuts in government spending. But “Doctor” Kermit Gosnell’s mound of corpses is apparently entirely unconnected to the broader culture.Why? Well, because it’s all about a woman’s “right to choose”

This verifiable story is one that seems to put all “pro-choice” debate in the trash bin:

“In 2001, Davida Johnson changed her mind about aborting her 6-month fetus after seeing Gosnell’s dazed, bloodied patients in his recovery room, she said. But in the treatment room, Gosnell’s staffers ignored her protests, smacked her, tied her arms down and sedated her into unconsciousness, she said. She awoke no longer pregnant.

Read this excellent essay; we all know how important it is to choose our rights as we think them up and then demand laws to protect our selfishness, (yes, tongue in cheek!).  But the faux religion behind the “choice” in legalized infanticide has now resulted in ignoring pleas of another choice – to change one’s mind.  Life results in our children, who offer us hope for our future.  Will we each do our part?
