Pro-life, Anti-children

by | May 25, 2022 | Culture, Politics

Hollow thoughts and prayers are served up after every shooting, yet these reek of hypocrisy. Where is the voice of the Right-wing, Pro-life crowd when children are made to suffer from a lack of proper gun control legislation? Proper representation? Read more...

I’m confused. So, you are anti-vac, not wanting the government to tell you what to do with your body.

But you are anti-abortion, allowing the government to tell you what to do with your body.

And you call yourself pro-life, but you are really anti-children. Where was your voice when we dropped bombs and Agent Orange on innocent children in Vietnam?

Where was your voice when we dropped bombs on innocent children in Iraq?

Where was your voice against the NRA when weekly executions occur on children by some crazed person who opens fire in schools across the nation?

Where was your voice when Republican states fought to deny children healthcare, neonatal care, daycare, rights that every child should have?

Where was your voice when preschool funds were slashed, knowing that preschooling is the number one facilitator in future achievement? In Missouri, that money was used to give billionaires tax cuts. Where was your outrage?

Where was your voice when funding was cut in Medicaid, the only lifeline marginalized children have?

You’re not pro-life. You’re pro-cruelty. You support candidates who block any effort to remove AK-47s from deranged gunmen who execute children. The hollow thoughts and prayers you serve up after every shooting reek of hypocrisy. You enable this abomination and my heart cries as I read the latest: 19 children shot dead in Texas by an eighteen-year-old deranged gunman, locked and loaded to the gills.


Have you no shame?

You don’t realize you are soaking in disinformation, a significant portion of it emanating from Russia’s St. Petersburg troll factory.

So, please don’t insult me or yourself by saying you are pro-life.

And you call yourself a patriot? And you’re all about preserving the Constitution? Preserve this: work to stop voter suppression, which is running rampant throughout the land. As much as you want to deny it, fight it, black people have a right to vote.

Our democracy’s foundation is built on preserving the right to vote—for all citizens!

Let me repeat that: FOR ALL CITIZENS.

You may call yourself pro-life, but the truth of the matter is you are anti-children.
