The Lady Speaks

Jenn’s Sunday Sermon

As the anti-women/anti-sex groups are busy marching to protest the right of women to make decisions affecting themselves and their bodies, let’s take a look at the distinct irony of their position and that of their Beloved Leader:

A Proclamation by the President of the United States of America

America was founded on the principle that we are all endowed by our Creator with the right to life and that every individual has dignity and worth. National Sanctity of Human Life Day helps foster a culture of life and reinforces our commitment to building a compassionate society that respects the value of every human being.

Among the most basic duties of Government is to defend the unalienable right to life, and my Administration is committed to protecting our society’s most vulnerable members.

We are vigorously promoting parental notification laws, adoption, abstinence education, crisis pregnancy programs, and the vital work of faith-based groups. Through the “Born-Alive Infants Protection Act of 2002,” the “Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act of 2003,” and the “Unborn Victims of Violence Act of 2004,” we are helping to make our country a more hopeful place.

One of our society’s challenges today is to harness the power of science to ease human suffering without sanctioning practices that violate the dignity of human life.

With the right policies, we can continue to achieve scientific progress while living up to our ethical and moral responsibilities.

National Sanctity of Human Life Day serves as a reminder that we must value human life in all forms, not just those considered healthy, wanted, or convenient. Together, we can work toward a day when the dignity and humanity of every person is respected.

NOW, THEREFORE, I, GEORGE W. BUSH, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim Sunday, January 21, 2007, as National Sanctity of Human Life Day. I call upon all Americans to recognize this day with appropriate ceremonies and to underscore our commitment to respecting and protecting the life and dignity of every human being.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this eighteenth day of January, in the year of our Lord two thousand seven, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and thirty-first.

GEORGE W. BUSH

Once again, El Pollo Loco proves he and his misAdministration’s motto is: “Hypocrisy R Us”.

I leave it to George Carlin to conclude:

From Back in Town (1996) :

Why, why, why, why, why is it, that most of the people who are against abortion, are people you wouldn’t want to fuck in the first place? Huh? Huh? Huh? Boy these conservatives are really something, aren’t they? They’re all in favor of the unborn. They will do anything for the unborn, but once you’re born, you’re on your own! Pro-life conservatives are obsessed with the fetus, from conception to 9 months. After that they don’t want to know about you. They don’t want to hear from you, No nothin’! No neo-natal care, no day care, no HeadStart, no school lunch, no food stamps, no welfare, no nothing! If you’re preborn you’re fine, if you’re preschool, you’re fucked! You’re fucked! Conservatives don’t care about you until you reach military age. Then they think you are just fine. Just what they’ve been looking for. Conservatives want live babies, so they can raise them to be dead soldiers.

[snip]

Pro-life. Pro-life. These people aren’t pro-life, they’re killing doctors! What kind of pro-life is that? What, they’ll do anything they can to save a fetus but if it grows up to a Doctor they just might have to kill it? They aren’t pro-life, they’re anti-woman, simple as it gets, anti-woman. They don’t like women. They believe that a woman’s primary role is to function as a brood-mare for the state. Pro-life. You don’t see many of these white anti-abortion women volunteering to have any black fetuses transplanted into their uteruses, do you? Nah, you don’t see them adopting a whole lot of crack-babies, do you? Nah, that might be something Christ would do!

And, you won’t see, you won’t see, alot of these pro-life people dousing themselves in kerosene and lighting themselves on fire! You know, morally religious committed people in south Vietnam, knew how to stage a god-damned demonstration, didn’t they, huh? They knew how to put on a fuckin’ protest! Light yourself on fire! Come on you moral crusaders, let’s see a little smoke, to match that fire in your belly.

Update: 1/21/07 9:31pm EDT

I had to change some images and/or links, since a couple of them didn’t show up. I also added a few images to underscore the hypocrisy of our supposed “leader”.
