Killing the Unborn at the Expense of the Infirm and Elderly

Shortly after posting this cartoon, a pro-life associate asked why I had placed the traditional icon of the Democratic Party behind the desk rather than Barack Obama. After all, he reasoned, this sweeping socialization of medicine was created in the president's image.

I explained that I had thought and re-thought this out...

Even though there have been as many as three dozen Democrats in the House who object to the anti-life provisions of the current proposals, the party as a whole remains steadfastly, resolutely, adamantly anti-life. But more to the point, every amendment to current health care proposals prohibiting federal funding of abortion has been quashed by the Democrat majority. Sadly, the Democrats remain America's party of death.

If it weren't for the vast majority of elected Democrats who are anti-life, the proposed health care "reform" would not be what it so clearly is: state-sponsored terrorism in the guise of compassion.
