Pro-Choice Zealotry: Current Abortion Numbers Aren't High Enough

Even though more than 1.2 million abortions were performed in the last year for which Aimee Thorne-Thomsen of the Pro-Choice Public Education Project (photo at left) had full statistics, she recently wrote that it (gulp!) wasn't enough to suit her.

Writing for the ludicrously liberal Daily Kos, Thorne-Thomsen wrote, “On the other hand, if those 1.21 million abortions represent only the women who could access abortion financially, geographically or otherwise, then that number is too low. Yes, too low....Do we dare admit that increasing the number of abortions might be not only good for women’s health, but also moral and just?”

Particularly incensed at the Oklahoma law which requires abortionists to allow an ultrasound viewing of the fetus (if the client so chooses), Thorne-Thomsen likened it to:

A: Setting a firefighter on fire before he can rush into a burning building;

B: Requiring a soldier to get shot before he is issued a firearm; or

C: Showing a man seeking a vasectomy his own vas deferens by sticking a camera in through his urethra.

Thus does irrationality, imbecilic wit and a tragically callous heart define the pr0-abortion advocate.
