War on Women or War on Babies?

The index page at Fox News proclaims “Dems Decry War on Women” in the pointer to this story, which includes such profundities as these:

“We are not going to allow them to move our country backward,” Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota vowed as she spoke to the crowd.

Another White House hopeful, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand of New York, called the measures “the beginning of President Trump’s war on women.”

And Sen. Cory Booker of New Jersey urged those protesting to “wake up more men to join this fight.”

The country moved backward — with a jolt — 46 years ago when the Supremes legalized abortion in Roe v. Wade. You would think that the opponents of capital punishment would be decidedly against the execution of innocents. But that would require a degree of logical consistency that eludes the “liberal” mind. Roe v. Wade wasn’t just a defeat for the unborn, it was also a victory for post-coital birth control — a judicial ratification of irresponsibility.

As for Trump’s nascent “war on women”, hadn’t “liberals’ long ago decided that Trump’s war began when he hit puberty, if not before?

What’s missing from all of this drama is the central fact that the Democrat Party long ago declared war on babies. And the war goes on, more shrilly than ever.
