At the zenith of the Monica Lewinsky scandal, Time magazine's White House reporter Nina Burleigh famously said of President Bill Clinton, "I'd be happy to give him [oral sex] just to thank him for keeping abortion legal." If that strikes you as conduct unbecoming, or even as a politically damaging admission, you don't understand what's really behind the movement for abortion-on-demand. To make the point yet clearer, check out the current feature -- again, from the pen of a pro-abortion advocate -- in Seattle's The Stranger:
This Thursday, NARAL Pro-Choice Washington hosts its annual Chocolate for Choice fundraiser -- a huge, dissipated extravaganza that features 13 celebrity judges, including Seattle Mayor Greg Nickels, actor Tom Skerritt, musician Reggie Watts, and KEXP's John Richards (the big names are all men). Around 400 pro-choice activists and Democratic heavyweights will show up at Safeco Field, stuff themselves silly with chocolate cakes, icings, and confections donated by local restaurants and pastry chefs, and in the process raise around $30,000 for NARAL.
This year, just like last year and the year before that, a small handful of picketers outside the premises will hoist grisly photographs of aborted fetuses. NARAL's website calls the event an "evening of utter decadence all supporting a woman's right to choose."
It pretty much speaks for itself. Thanks to Jeremy Lott of GetReligion for the heads up.
