In Your Opinion: Real 'extremists' are pro-choice minority

--
The Daily Star

---- — If you missed the March for Life bus to Washington, D.C., on Jan. 22 or the re-aired taping on EWTN, you can see all the speeches and the masses of people (mostly teens) that filled the streets by searching online for “March For Life 2014 videos.” 

Pro-choicers say we are a minority. In 2014, stats show there more people consider themselves pro-life than pro-choice: 48 percent to 45 percent respectively. Once, pro-choicers demanded “the majority rules” in a democracy. Poof, that’s gone, because now nearly 55 percent believe that abortion should be illegal after 20 weeks.

Pro-choicers deny babies are born alive, either accidentally or on purpose. They contend Gosnel’s snipping the spinal cords of birthed babies were an anomaly. However, some clinics intentionally do live births. To hear clinic employees tell what they were asked to do, search “life dynamics videos.”

Gov. Cuomo calls pro-life conservatives radicals who needs to leave the state. Who are the extremists here: those who defend the lives of innocent babies, disabled and elderly? Or those who defend the extermination of pre-natal babies up to and now after birth?

Isn’t calling for us to leave New York state a very polite and deceptive way of saying “you are an ‘inconvenience’ to our party. To the incinerator, you radical!”
