January 21: "Ask Them What They Mean by `Choice' Blog Day"

Okay, I'm starting a day early. NARAL has chosen to "celebrate" what is arguably the most infamous day in United States history -- the 38th anniversary of Roe v. Wade -- with a "Blog for Choice Day." So I'm "choosing" -- as our countless other bloggers -- to ask "pro-choicers" a simple question:


Jill Stanek, who sparked the counter-campaign, writes:
When NARAL announced a “Blog for Choice Day,” to be held this Friday, January 21, my blood boiled.

How dare they celebrate the upcoming 38th anniversary of the infamous Roe v. Wade decision with their ambiguous claptrap.

Over 50 million babies have been killed in America since that terrible day, most certainly nothing to cheer about, unless you’re in Rome at the Colosseum perhaps.

So pro-life bloggers are banding together to sponsor a counter “Ask Them What They Mean When They Say ‘Choice’ Blog Day” on the same day, January 21.

We’re also encouraging all pro-lifers on Twitter and Facebook to participate.

The idea is simple. Any time any of us reads pro-aborts spouting their obscure “choice” rhetoric on a blog, website, Facebook, or Twitter, we call them out on it. We ask them to explain what the “choice” is.

Is it to eat carrots rather than broccoli? To wear red instead of blue? No, of course “choice” is code for killing babies. What’s their problem with the A-word?

Please join us. Thank you!
