As the Babies Die…the Social Right Head-Wank Goes On

the diagnosis

We keep hearing the wailing and gnashing of teeth, from the social Right, about all those poor little babies who are dying.

It’s been forty years since Roe v. Wade, and these warriors of righteousness have done absolutely nothing about it. The carnage continues to mount, and they do nothing but boast and preen. It’s nice they’re so impressed with themselves.

There is simply no way to turn a switch and automatically stop all abortions. They know this. By making the perfect the enemy of the good, they refuse to do what can be done to scale back the number of abortions and gradually end abortion on demand.

“But…but…but…how many children will die if it’s gradual?”

How many already have died because they won’t knuckle down and do what needs to be done? How many more will die before they stop preening and actually set themselves to the task?

Bragging and preening are just so much more fun. This is nothing but a gigantic head-wank.

Statist solutions will not work. There simply is no way to outlaw all abortions. Especially not after forty years of their legality. Statists need to stop believing in magic wands and unicorns and stop insisting on solutions so unrealistic they will never see the light of day.

They actually have the gall to accuse libertarians of being ideological purists.

Statism makes its minions feel good about themselves. It tells them they’re smart, and wonderful. But it does nothing but perpetuate its own power. Social conservatives have spent forty years telling themselves how wonderful they are. They have saved very, very, very, very few unborn lives. Then again, evidently that was never their real objective.

I have a couple of questions about the Gosnell case currently in the news:

Number One: How are this “doctor’s” procedures funded? Does it all come from private funds, or are we taxpayers springing for it?

Number Two: Is “Doctor” Gosnell alone, or are others in this racket with him? How many survivors of botched abortions lie screaming in other abortion clinic storage rooms?

Here’s a hint. If a sizeable percentage of abortions are being funded at taxpayers’ expense, then the answer to Question Number Two is that hell, no, Gosnell is not the only butcher kept in business by our tax money. They are, in reality, probably as numerous as mushrooms after a spring rain.

The social cons care about the answer to these questions, right? Wrong. They care about waving their pom-poms for the team and having fun feeling superior for no damned reason. I’m a libertarian — who supposedly doesn’t care about ending abortion — yet I’m asking these questions, while all too many of the theocrats aren’t.

Libertarians want to cut the jugular of the abortion industry by ending taxpayer funding for abortions. Would that completely end all abortions? Nothing will. But it would likely be the death-blow for abortion on demand in America.

The abortion debate in America is really, at bottom, about whether We the People should be forced to pay for procedures we believe are murder. If they’re all that necessary, the supporters of abortions for reasons that do stand up under scrutiny could certainly spring for the cost of them, themselves. But of course, without taxpayer funding, the Gosnells of this world might not be able to afford to drive new Mercedes or live in hilltop McMansions.

I’ve pretty much come to the conclusion that social conservatives don’t really want to end abortion on demand. They’re having too much fun puffing themselves up and patting themselves on the back. They need lots of people to be sinning so they can go on feeling like saints. Were there nothing against which to contrast their own laziness and self-indulgence, everyone else would see it for what it really is.

Social cons want to go on lining up at the trough to get other people’s money every chance they can. Witness the hetero pig-fest on tax breaks for opposite-sex married couples. They’re too busy thieving to really give a damn about the unborn.

Phonies. Absolute frauds.

It’s time for libertarians to stand up to this bullshit. Time to flush, and flush hard.
