Ted Geisel, better known as Dr Seuss, wasn’t only a great writer of kid’s books, he was a great fighter for social justice. That’s why he opposed the so-called “Pro-Life” movement. He saw through their rhetoric and realised that they were nothing more than a front for the nastiest wing of the Republican Party. I think that we can and should cut abortions… in fact, most “Pro-Choice” people agree to that (they’re NOT the ravening baby-killers caricatured by the Randall Terrys of this world). Indeed, if we call ourselves Christians, we should NOT work to illegalise abortion… instead, we should look for ways to make it possible for hard-up moms to keep their kids and to help poor families live in dignity. That is, we shouldn’t cut Food Stamps or any other social welfare programme to suck up to the likes of Rand Paul and Paul Ryan… they’re godless greedsters (Ryan hates his own pope… fancy that!) who only want to smash ordinary folk so that the Affluent Effluent can profit hugely and party hearty without a care for the rest of us.
I stand with Dr Seuss on this one. No one should “enable” the “Pro-Lifers”; they’ve become the willing running dogs of the most grasping anti-people politicians out there. Keep the social safety net whole… then, we can all aid moms to keep their kids. We don’t live in Mayberry… hell, Mayberry NEVER existed. We live in a complex modern society and that means that we need things like Food Stamps, single-payer healthcare, and a decent welfare system (not the present knackered and castrated system).
Stand with the creator of the Cat! Stand against the Greedster Rats! ‘Nuff said…
