The So-Called “Pro-Choice” Party Isn’t Living Up to Its Name


The Democrats, who have made the “choice” to kill innocent preborn children their calling card, are leaving themselves wide open for jokes about the irony of their preferred status , according to an op-ed in The Hill by Jonathan Turley: 

“Across news sites, Democrats are warning of the imminent death of democracy. Hillary Clinton has warned that a Trump victory would be the end of democracy. MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow is warning of “executions.” Even actors like Robert DeNiro are predicting that this may be our very last democratic election. 

“Yet these harbingers of tyranny are increasingly pursuing the very course that will make their predictions come true. The Democratic Party is actively seeking to deny voters choices in this election, supposedly to save democracy.” 

When you consider the sheer scale of everything the Democrats want people to have the right to choose, you can’t help but laugh. 

But with elections, something that the Democrats have accused Republicans of is using the Russians to cheat to win in 2016, lying about the 2020 election being stolen, or that Trump winning another election would pose an existential threat to America itself.  

As we detailed in a previous article on the Students for Life Action blog, the Democrats have several backdoor tactics they can use to ensure that Joe Biden is not on the ticket in 2024. The DNC rules allow for Biden’s replacement to be picked by the DNC itself, without any say from their delegates or primary voters. 

Yet, in fairness, Turley noted that the Democrats are not the only party to have done this – though they have done it most commonly in the last 20 years:  

“This is not unprecedented. It happened with Barack Obama in 2012 and, on the Republican side, with George W. Bush in 2004. It was wrong then, and it is wrong now.  

“As Democratic presidential candidate Rep. Dean Phillips (D-Minn.) noted, “Americans would expect the absence of democracy in Tehran, not Tallahassee. Our mission as Democrats is to defeat authoritarians, not become them.” 

No political movement is perfect because the people who make up political movements aren’t perfect. But it shouldn’t be lost on anyone that the political party that has raved about the need for killing children and protecting democracy for a while now seems the least likely to want to practice such principles when it comes to choosing their own leaders.
