That money-making ‘pro-choice’ scam

By Phil Lawler ( bio - articles - email ) | Jul 31, 2019

First let’s put together a coalition of groups involved in airline travel: the airlines themselves, aircraft manufacturers, airport executives, unions representing pilots and flight attendants, air-traffic controllers, TSA agents, etc.

Now let’s write a manifesto for them, demanding immediate government action to:

  • eliminate all restrictions on air travel: safety restrictions, environmental restrictions, noise restrictions;
  • provide government funding to subsidize fares for anyone who can’t afford to travel;
  • shut down the railroads and the interstate highway system, leaving travelers no other options.

Would anyone take these proposals seriously?

Then why does anyone take the abortion lobby seriously, when it demands an end to restrictions, unlimited government subsidies, and the elimination of other health-care options?
