I’ve seen this tactic being used more and more by the pro-death crowd. Pro-aborts argue in favor of killing babies out of love because they want their imaginary children to be given a great life with advantages so anything less than perfection is not living up to the ideal and therefore not love. So because their real babies don’t live up to the expectation they had for their imaginary baby it’s a loving thing to kill the real baby. Get it? I know. It gives me a headache too.
Just yesterday on the Rachel Maddow show Dr. Elizbeth Newell put a twist on this by elevating the idea of motherhood to such a high level that any falling short of the ideal of perfect motherhood is such an offense that abortion is clearly the only answer. But it’s done out of love of the ideal.
This is nasty:
