All life is not equal


By: Matt Barber

First, on a personal note: Thank you, thank you and thank you, Mary Elizabeth  Williams! What a glorious service you’ve done the pro-life cause. I know, that’s  not what you intended. But that’s precisely what you’ve accomplished.

Did I say thank you?

In her jaw-dropping  article, “So what if abortion ends life?” Williams – a mainstream, though  uncharacteristically honest pro-abort scribe for Salon.com – has inexplicably  broken from the Orwellian left’s ministerial script. In so doing, she’s  severally undermined the very cause for which she would gladly “sacrifice” (dismember alive that is) her very own daughter. A daughter, mind you, whom she  coldly acknowledges to be “a human life.”

But enough with the pleasantries.

In his 1925 manifesto “Mein Kampf,” Adolf Hitler wrote: “Here’s the  complicated reality in which we live: All life is not equal.” Though technically  a human life, “the parasitic Jew is a human life without having the same rights  as the Aryan.”

“Mother Germany is the boss,” he declared. “Her life and what is right for  her circumstances and her health should automatically trump the rights of the  non-autonomous Jew. Always.”

Ha! Just kidding. Actually, Ms. Williams wrote those things. She wrote them,  not from Nazi Germany in 1925, but, rather, from America. Wednesday.

She wrote them, not about the Jewish people, but, instead, about the most  vulnerable of all people: The child in her mother’s womb. (A holocaust by any  other name …)

Yes, welcome to Feminist Funland, where the women are randy and the children  are dead. In “So what if abortion ends life?” (I just love writing that),  Williams, like some unintentionally creepy clown, guides us through the “pro-choice” house of mirrors, revealing, with crystal clarity, the true horror  behind the left’s distorted reflections.

“While opponents of abortion eagerly describe themselves as ‘pro-life,’” she  writes, “the rest of us have had to scramble around with not nearly as  big-ticket words like ‘choice’ and ‘reproductive freedom.’”

Here, Ms. Williams essentially admits what the life community has said for  decades – that the euphemistic language of “choice” and “reproductive freedom,” long employed by the multi-billion-dollar abortion industry, is exactly that;  euphemism – propaganda.

In so many words, she goes on to acknowledge that, rather than “pro-choice,”  “pro-death” is indeed the appropriate moniker for her movement. “Yet I know that  throughout my own pregnancies, I never wavered for a moment in the belief that I  was carrying a human life inside of me. I believe that’s what a fetus is: a  human life. And that doesn’t make me one iota less solidly pro-choice,” she  proclaims.

Nice. Wonder how many of the little Williams babies made the cut.

But the money line? “Here’s the complicated reality in which we live,” she  declares. “All life is not equal.”

Get that, Thomas Jefferson? “All life is not equal.” Put that in your  self-evident-truth-pipe and smoke it. We clear, MLK? Wrap that “I have a dream” up in a big wad of “All life is not equal” and get to the back of the Birmingham  bus.

Indeed, Ms. Williams is a militant feminist and that’s adorable; but her line  of reasoning here is anything but fresh and cute. It stems from the utilitarian  rotgut Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger poured down the gullet of her  power-drunk eugenicist fans – foremost of whom was the hypertensive fuhrer  himself.

Still, to be fair, I’ll let Ms. Williams speak for herself: “Yet a fetus can  be a human life without having the same rights as the woman in whose body it  resides,” she finds. “She’s the boss. Her life and what is right for her  circumstances and her health should automatically trump the rights of the  non-autonomous entity inside of her. Always.”

In other words: “Me no likey? You die.” Or, as Hitler really did say: “We  shall regain our health only by eliminating the Jew.” Old Adolf, of course,  defined “health” to mean exactly what feminists mean by it. “Health: Any reason  at all.”

Maybe I’ve been at this too long, but I love it when liberals mistake  sociopathy for conviction – candor for courage. I revel in those rare moments  when left-wing extremists, nestled warm inside the foul bowels of their “progressive” echo chamber – pull back the wizard’s curtain just far enough to  expose, if only for an instant, the wicked sty in which they roll, splash and  play.

Like this gem: “If by some random fluke I learned today I was pregnant,” Williams boasts, “you bet you’re a-s I’d have an abortion. I’d have the World’s  Greatest Abortion. … I still need to acknowledge my conviction that the fetus is  indeed a life. A life worth sacrificing.”

“The World’s Greatest Abortion.”

“A life worth sacrificing.”
