This week the Right discovered a newfound love for the words “Choice” and “Privacy” when dealing with women’s bodies.
They praise Bristol Palin’s choice to keep her baby and demand that we respect her privacy. Sounds great–will all women get privacy when dealing with these matters or will it be eliminated when Mcain appoints his first Supreme Court Justice? And do we celebrate all choices or only the one that respects the “human rights” of blastocysts?
For quite some time single mothers and pregnant teens were demonized by the Right as an example of an immoral country in a liberal death spiral. Now they gush.
If Barack Obama had a 17-year-old daughter who was pregnant and single…well, I don’t need to finish that sentence, do I?
