The title of this article should be obvious, yet we have people in this country, conservatives even, who insist, “Obama seems like a nice guy, but…”
“Nice” guys (and gals) do not murder babies. They do not continue to tax you even after you die so that you can’t leave your loved ones an inheritance you worked your whole life to provide them with. Nice guys do not regulate your every move so that your life and livelihood are stifled.
Nice guys are not liberals. Liberals are not nice guys.
To be nice, a person must be generous, thoughtful of others, unselfish. Pro-life people are loving. They love life, and they love it so much that they want little babies they have not met and likely never will meet to have life and enjoy it, too. They want pregnant mothers to avoid the pain, void, guilt, and the physical and emotional trauma that comes with having an abortion – so much so that they’ll endure the freezing cold weather and show their prayerful, caring support day after day and year after year.
(I witnessed this enduring love at the 41st annual March for Life today in Washington. So, so, so cold. So, so, so many happy warriors. They care not only about the little ones being mercilessly slaughtered every day, but about being in the way of others on the metro, whether you’re warm enough, stranger, and if anyone needs help.)
Liberals spin the pro-life stance to make advocates of life seem like judgmental totalitarians looking to end all personal liberty. But who’s really saying “No” here? Liberals are saying “No, you do not have the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness while you’re still in the womb.” Conservatives are much more tolerant and liberal on this score. “Yes you can have life!” “Yes you can have this baby!” “Yes you can lead a fulfilling life, both of you!”
Liberals are all about the rights of other people, given those other people are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or some other minority. But if that other person is an inconvenient infant in the womb (LGBT or otherwise) who cramps their hedonistic lifestyle – watch out!
Liberals may not want babies to die, but they don’t care if they do, which is just as bad. And they’ll do everything in their power to make sure they’re able to do so in as efficient and taxpayer-funded a manner as possible.
If wanting another innocent creature to experience the same love, pleasure, joy, and happiness that you have enjoyed in this life is negative, then maybe liberals are nice people after all.
