[2/6/17] The left prides itself on promoting the barbarous murder of babies, yet appears to have unlimited compassion for both refugees and illegal immigrants.
This disturbing dichotomy has not gone unnoticed by TheBlaze blogger Matt Walsh, who in a piece published Friday asked, “If we call unborn babies ‘fetal refugees’ would leftists care about them?“
“The contrast is even more remarkable when you consider that every argument they make in favor of unfettered immigration applies even more directly to the unborn,” he added.
Specifically, the left’s arguments in favor of the federal government importing infinite numbers of illegal immigrants and refugees appeal “almost entirely to morality, dismissing with contempt practical concerns like national security and national sovereignty,” Walsh noted.
“They say that these people — illegal aliens, refugees — are human beings and as such they deserve to be treated with respect (which is true). They say that it is our responsibility as citizens to deal with whatever inconvenience or burden caused by their presence (which is not necessarily true). Their right to enter our country supersedes our own concerns (which is definitely not true).”
Yet when it comes to unborn children, leftists dismiss these exact same arguments, maintaining instead that unborn children do not deserve to be treated with respect but instead deserve to wiped out of existence so as to not impose an undue burden on the mother.
