Hey, remember when the Department of Homeland Security announced that pro-lifers were identified as possible terror threats. You thought that was bad?
In what has to be the most alarming verbiage to come from the Obama administration in hours, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius declared “war” on pro-lifers.
Her actions in this administration clearly show that she means it with the administration’s attempt to force Catholic institutions to pay for sterilization, contraception and even abortifacients.
World Mag reports:
On Wednesday, in a strongly worded speech to pro-abortion supporters at a Chicago fundraiser, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said Republicans are not only working to repeal President Barack Obama’s healthcare overhaul, they also want to eliminate health services provided by abortion business Planned Parenthood.
Those in attendance at the NARAL Pro-Choice America luncheon gave some of their loudest applause at her mention of the Obama administration’s support for requiring insurance plans to cover birth control without copays. But Sebelius continued, saying, “We are in a war.”
Sebelius referenced a dozen pro-life demonstrators outside the event who silently held large signs depicting aborted children. She said:
“I know that some people were a bit appalled at walking through the demonstrators as you came to this lunch. It is a discomfort when you’re coming to lunch, but think about the women who are trying to tap into the health services they desperately need who have to go through that kind of gauntlet in order to access all-too-infrequent services.”
This always amazes me how pro-aborts freak out about graphic abortion signs when they’re the ones supporting the actual procedure. But let’s face it, it’s not really the signs that offend them, it’s the pro-lifers themselves. And the fact that they’re growing. And how do you get rid of such people? Oh yeah, war.
But let’s really focus on what happened here in a nutshell. A Cabinet level member of the administration declared war on a segment of the American population. Cue media silence in 3…2…oh never mind.
Exit question: What happened again to the new civility?
