I Have a Few Words for Republicans Following Their Hypocritical “March For Life”

On Friday, Mike Pence spoke to a crowd filled with anti-Constitutional fanatics who showed up to express their disdain for our Constitution and the rights women are given to have control over their own bodies. The main theme of his speech centered around his belief that “life is winning.”


I am fed up with Republicans calling themselves the “pro-life” party simply because millions of their Constitution-hating followers are obsessed with the sex lives and bodies of people they’ll never meet.

Here’s a “fun” fact: Being anti-abortion doesn’t have a thing to do with being “pro-life” — nothing.

This is just another example, in a long list of them throughout human history, where religious fanatics are obsessed with forcing others to adhere to their beliefs. Entire wars have been fought, and civilizations driven into extinction, over this desire by these religious zealots to force their beliefs on others.

The gall of these people to consider themselves “pro-life.” I’d call that a joke if I wasn’t so nauseated by the fact that tens of millions in this country actually believe that they can be “pro-life” and support the GOP.

Well, I hate to break it to these folks, but there’s nothing “pro-life” about the Republican party.

The only reason these GOP con artists pretend to care about abortion is because they realized it was a hot button issue they could use to manipulate millions of people by conning them into believing that this was actually about “protecting the babies.”

No person has the right to call themselves “pro-life” when they support a party that:

  • Is pro-gun.
  • Brags about its support of the death penalty.
  • Elected a president who talked openly about targeting and killing the families of terrorists.
  • Supports torture.
  • Vilifies the poor as “lazy moochers looking for a handout.”
  • Pushes for cuts to vital government programs where most of the beneficiaries are children and the elderly.
  • Almost always starts some sort of a war when they have power.
  • Wants to strip health care away from millions of people, many of whom are poor.
  • Rejects the overwhelmingly accepted science behind climate change, putting the planet and billions of lives at risk.
  • Demeans and belittles poor immigrants.
  • Opposes the minimum wage.
  • Rejects refugees fleeing for their lives from unspeakable horrors, many of whom are women and children.
  • Cuts benefits poor families with children depend on to survive.
  • Ignores the hundreds of thousands of children already in foster care while pushing to overburden the system even more.

The list goes on and on. The Republican Party is many things, but “pro-life” sure isn’t one of them.

If Republicans want to call themselves pro:

  • Hate.
  • Racism.
  • Bigotry.
  • Fear.
  • Paranoia.
  • Pettiness.
  • Hypocrisy.
  • Sexism.
  • Believing in conspiracies.
  • Death.
  • War.
  • Torture.
  • Wealthy.
  • Corruption.
  • Trying to restrict the Constitutional rights of Americans.

Sure, all those descriptions are valid — but they’re damn sure not “pro-life.”

Republicans can incessantly whine about abortion all they want, but they lose any and all credibility (not that they’ve really had any for the last 50+ years) when their party, by way of the shameful anti-life policies it supports, undoubtedly proves that it doesn’t give a damn about any sort of life outside of a woman’s womb.

    Another sad example of your twisted logic and inability to understand facts Alan.


    Let’s go to a US government website: the Center for Disease Control (CDC.gov) tells us that over 59,000,000 babies have been killed in their mothers womb since Roe v Wade became national policy in the US. Can you tell me the total COMBINED number of deaths in the US from heart disease, cancer and stroke over the same period of time?

    Far, far less Alan. Look it up. Gosh you might learn something.

    How about Americans killed in combat Alan? How many Americans have been killed in combat (better throw the French and Indian war into this to make the number as big as possible). Less than 3,000,000 Americans have died in all wars.

    Oh, here is a grisly one fact for you to research Alan. Do you know one of the largest regular expenses of most large cities? Cleaning out debris from sewage lines near abortion “clinics”, Alan. You do know what this debris is don’t you? Parts of babies killed in their mothers womb.

    Over 59,000,000 babies killed in their mothers womb.

    How much is enough for you?
