From the "How to commit political suicide" file

According to Rep. Gwen Moore (D-WI), abortion is better than being forced to live  "eating Ramen noodles" and "mayonnaise sandwiches". Well, not in so many words. Her argument was that growing up poor and disadvantaged is so bad that young, poor single women ought to have the ability to "opt out" of motherhood.

Ergo, abortion is better than eating Ramen noodles and mayonnaise sandwiches. (You can watch her testimony on Michelle Malkin's blog.)

Of course, dying is always preferable to suffering ... provided, of course, that someone else is doing the dying. This is exactly what happens when compassion is divorced from moral courage and common sense.

Now, all Rep. Moore's next opponent has to do next year is print out a couple hundred thousand signs saying: "According to Gwen Moore, being aborted is better than being forced to grow up eating Ramen noodles and mayonnaise sandwiches. This is Rep. Moore's idea of compassion."

Then watch that district go Republican at the next election.


  1. Here's a novel thought, encourage chastity and abstinence. Last time I heard, there was only one reported case of a virgin birth in all human history.

  2. Y'know, it's funny ... non-believers sneer at the Virgin Birth because the people of the time "didn't know any better". But when Mary is told she was going to bear a child, her first reaction was "How can this be, as I do not know man?" And Joseph's reaction is to divorce her quietly, so she won't be stoned for adultery. Say what you will, the people of the first century were a hell of a lot smarter about connecting the dots than our post-modern, sexually liberated teenagers.
