The Point: Abortion: It’s for the Children!

Think of the children, she says, just not those children.

I often speculate that a pro-life troll must be running Planned Parenthood’s Twitter account, because some of the things America’s largest abortion provider tweets are positively tone-deaf, even bizarre.

My imaginary troll might also be working as an advisor for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Last week, as she was sworn in, Pelosi invited a group of kids to the podium and said, “I now call the House to order on behalf of all of America’s children.”

Immediately after that, Pelosi and her party introduced a bill to fund international abortions, reversing one of President Trump’s first acts.

The pro-life Twitter page CatholicVote pointed out the dark irony. To portray your party’s policies as pro-children when one of your highest priorities is to keep child-killing legal boggles the mind. But that’s what we can expect from the House of Representatives for at least the next two years.

Elections have consequences, and those consequences are often measured in sad irony, and sometimes in lost lives.
