Why Is Healthcare a Important Moral Issue & Not Abortion

In the wake of Senator Ted Kennedy’s passing, President Obama (using the death of the Senator as a political tool) said:

[Kennedy] repeated the truth that health care is decisive for our future prosperity, but he also reminded me that ‘it concerns more than material things.’ ‘What we face,’ he wrote, ‘is above all a moral issue; at stake are not just the details of policy, but fundamental principles of social justice and the character of our country.’

Pro-lifers have been saying the same thing about abortion for years, but liberals turn a blind eye to that grotesque, inhumane practice and pretty it up under the guise of personal rights (of the mother, that is, not the baby who’s having his/her life ripped away prematurely).

It is a strange and twisted day when we call reforming healthcare (the access to which is not a right) an act of “social justice” while at the same time we are tolerating the wholesale discard of human life (which is an inalienable right along with liberty and the pursuit of happiness).

    I always feel a little suspicious about letters that are only read after the writer has died.
