Fundie dogfight: Religious Right turns on babykiller Sam Brownback
from the fundie-friendly OneNewsNow of the American Family Assn.:



Brownback 'throwing the unborn under the bus'
Jim Brown - OneNewsNow - 3/6/2009 6:00:00 AM


A pro-life activist says Senator Sam Brownback's decision to support pro-abortion Kansas Governor Kathleen Sebelius for Health and Human Services secretary shows that his commitment to the unborn is merely political rather than a core value.

Kansas Republican Senators Sam Brownback and Pat Roberts issued a joint statement congratulating Sebelius on her HHS nomination, saying they "look forward to working with her on issues important to the state." Sebelius is a Catholic who says she personally believes abortion is wrong, yet has opposed restrictions on late-term abortions and is a friend and defender of notorious Wichita abortionist George Tiller.

Mark Crutcher, president of Life Dynamics, Incorporated, says Brownback -- a self-professed pro-life Catholic -- "abandoned" the unborn by backing Sebelius.

"I think it's typical of what we've seen over the years when somebody's commitment to the unborn is political rather than a core value with them," says the pro-life leader. "It's like the difference between a politician and a statesman."

Crutcher says Brownback's desire to become the next governor of Kansas may be driving his support of Sebelius. "All of Brownback's flowery words in the past don't really mean much," he says. "When push comes to shove, he'll throw the unborn under the bus for some political advantage -- and that's what's happened here."

In addition, Crutcher says the pro-life movement has been "stabbed in the back by people like Sam Brownback so many times" that the movement should have learned the lesson that the measure of a pro-life lawmaker is not what he tells you he believes, but rather what he will do to protect the life of the unborn.

OneNewsNow has twice contacted Senator Brownback's office for comment on his support of Sebelius. Those emails have not been returned.

5. I guess these hypocrites liked it better when the Senator was advocating for the
death penalty for OB-GYNs who performed abortions.

Hypocrites, every last single one of them.

6. They are truly never going to get it
The anti-choice folks just had the most repressive regime they could have possibly hoped for, up to and including a chief executive who didn't mind buffing his ersatz cowboy boots with the Constitution. The money for abstinence-only sex education, the curtailment of funds for any sort of sane family planning in the U.S. and abroad, the Terri Schiavo debacle, just to name a few tidbits. And yet, on their Holy Grail of legislation, the coveted constitutional amendment to ban abortion forever? They got zip.

Dear Mr. Crutcher:

Since you're too goddammed stupid to figure it out any other way, here it is: The Republicans don't give a tin shit about abortion. They use the issue to raise money from imbeciles like you. Abortion will never be outlawed. They take your campaign donations and laugh at your stupidity.

The truth may hurt, but there it is.

Love and kisses,
gratuitous
