Steve MacDonald: War on pregnancy crisis centers proves Democrats are not ‘pro-choice’

The following commentary by Steve MacDonald has been republished with permission from GraniteGrok.

Defenders of abortion have always insisted that it was a question of choice. You know, the accessible but safe and rare schtick. And hey, no one was making you. But that conversation has changed from D.C. to our state of New Hampshire.

Attacks on crisis pregnancy centers began before the rhetorical ink was dry on the Dobbs decision. The left immediately began rolling out a narrative about safety. Pregnancy crisis centers might not be safe, are not safe, and women (whatever those are) need to know.

Your first observation might be safety? Safety?

Since when did Democrats care about safety when it comes to abortions? When did they care about anything but more of them? And that’s a fair question. Every shadow that falls across their killing fields is met with a full-court political and media press.

They’ll say or do anything to keep that taxpayer funds to campaign contributions laundromat open for business, and the minority baby murder machine oiled and running. If women get the idea that they could carry with private support, care, adoption services, and even help with marriage counseling and other educational services on parenting and being a father to your children, that could be a threat to socialism. I mean Democracy.

So, the war on crisis pregnancy centers is underway. Locally, US Senator Maggie ‘One-Term’ Hassan has announced that they are fake health care. And Liz Warren says these centers deceive and lie to women.

“Here in Massachusetts, these so-called crisis pregnancy centers outnumber genuine abortion clinics by three to one,” Warren said. “They are giving it over to people who wish them harm and that has to stop. We need to put a stop to that in Massachusetts, right now.”

You’ll notice that the narratives are cut from the same shroud, from sea to rising sea. And not so much as a peep about these centers getting vandalized, or fire-bombed, even though they probably provide a valuable service to poor and minority women (whatever those are) and, in many cases, employ them.

What about them? Where’s their choice? And why don’t they get to decide? I thought you were pro-choice? Did you mean your choice? Did you mean that when you don’t like the choices other people create or choose, you can smear or label them until they are no longer available?

People will choose not to use contraception unless you take that choice from them. They will get pregnant and have to decide what to do. If they lack the resources or support structure, removing or scaremongering them away from pregnancy crisis centers, all that’s left is going it alone or abortion.

Is it a coincidence that Democrats receive millions in campaign support and free grassroots activists from the abortion lobby? An industry you pump up with millions of taxpayer dollars.

And Pregnancy Care centers are, for the most part, privately funded and not donating to Democrat campaigns? Organizations run by Christians, whom you also hate.

In other words, the choice in pro-choice is your choice.

If that doesn’t exemplify what the Democrat Party is truly about, I’m not sure what does.

  1. When you truly understand how evil these Democrats are today, the last thing you’d want is more government.. this really means more of *them* controlling our lives.
    And the Republicans we elect to stop all of these evil socialist policies have been nothing but an embarrassment. We all know what the Democrats are about, it’s the nutless Republicans that need to be tar and feathered.

  2. I do not understand how Ms. Warren can be such an airhead. A mean one at that. Just like most of the Dem/Progs in this state, she makes these outrageous claims which she cannot back up with facts. So I would like to know the facts behind her assertion that pregnancy crisis centers are a sham and that all they wish to do is “harm” their clients.

    Well Liz, you (and Bernie) are the prime purveyors of hate. It is obvious from your rhetoric that you wish to actually hurt those of us that disagree with you. You claim to be an expert on banking, but you have no clue as to how our economy works. All you do is trash it. And your knowledge of the tax code can be fit on the head of a pin. You want to tax “unrealized” capital gains ? Do you have an idea what this would result in. Of course not.
