Democrats and 'choice': Abortion vs. everything else

The Democratic Party has a hideous record of immorality in the light of history.

The Democratic Party was the party of slavery and Jim Crow.  That is a matter of historical record, which explains why Abraham Lincoln's name was not even allowed on the ballot in many slave states in the 1860 election.  Slick Willie kept the Confederate Flag flying in Little Rock during his long tenure as governor of Arkansas.  Senate Democrats chose Ku Klux Klan leader Robert Byrd to be their Senate floor leader, and Democrat presidents chose Klansmen to be attorney general and Supreme Court members.

The Democratic Party was the party of treason during the Cold War.  Teddy Kennedy actually flew to Moscow before the 1984 election to find ways to defeat Ronald Reagan's re-election.  Virtually every Soviet spy aligned with one of the two major parties was a Democrat, as America learned when the Venona decryptions and Soviet archives became public after Reagan won the Cold War. 

The Democratic Party was the chosen vehicle of virtually every horribly criminal big-city machine.  From Tweed and Daley and Hague onward, these entities have been organs of the Democratic Party.  Harry Truman was a protégé of the corrupt Pendergast Machine in Kansas City just as the Kennedy gang was the protégé of gangsters and Joe Kennedy was himself the boss of a political machine.

The Democratic Party is also the party of that ghastly practice of prenatal infanticide known as abortion.  This is, of course, simply designed to win votes and hold constituencies.  That Roe v. Wade granted women the "right to choose" is pure hokum.  Roe v. Wade made the regulation of prenatal medicine in this area ruled by federal judges rather than state legislatures.  Prior to that modern Dred Scott decision, states could, and did, allow abortion in cases like rape or when the life of the mother was in danger. 

Whatever one thinks of Roe v. Wade, however, the wickedness and hypocrisy of Democrats regarding abortion is much deeper and more putrid.  Consider how Democrats, Republicans, and nearly all Americans respond to other areas of life in which people have a legal right to choose.

Smoking cigarettes is legal, but no Democrat urges that government and politicians say nothing about smoking on account of an individual's "right to choose."  Americans have the right to eat too much sugar and fat and exercise too little, but that does not keep Democrats from lecturing us about what we ought to eat and how much we ought to exercise.  Dropping out of high school is exercising a "right to choose."  Drinking too much is exercising a "right to choose." 

In all of these areas (and many others), Democrats strongly urge Americans to avoid certain types of behavior and certain types of actions even if the behavior or actions are legal.  Republicans and other Americans, generally speaking, hold the same consistent opinions: smoking, overeating, drinking to excess, leaving school, hating people because of their race, and so on are legal but bad choices.

Politicians feel compelled to urge Americans to exercise their rights morally and wisely.  Yet the leaders of the Democratic Party have no problem with abortion at all.  They have no problem with sexual promiscuity at all.  They have no problem with self-destructive and soul-destroying behavior.

"Smoking?  Bad!  Murdering the baby in your womb?  Don't give it a second thought, because we sure won't."
