This tweet from Greg Pollowitz captures the radical feminist, we-heart-abortion vibe of the Democratic Convention:
after yesterday's #dnc2012, I feel I'm missing out: anybody know where a guy can go and get an abortion?

From the abortion party's platform:
The Democratic Party strongly and unequivocally supports Roe v. Wade and a woman’s right to make decisions regarding her pregnancy, including a safe and legal abortion, regardless of ability to pay. We oppose any and all efforts to weaken or undermine that right.That means unrestricted abortions paid for by the taxpayers. Woo hoo! Bring on the suction machines! They'll save us from Paul Ryan who, according to liberal pet Sandra Fluke, "co-sponsored a bill that would allow pregnant women to die preventable deaths in our emergency rooms." Well, no, that's not actually true. Steve Ertelt clarifies:
Fluke is bastardizing a portion of the bill stopping taxpayer funding of abortions in Obamacare that reinstates conscience protections for pro-life medical workers who don’t want to be involved in abortions.But conscience protections are so Bush-administration.
The convention has been a feminist freak show. Let's save ourselves a few thousand words with some images. Here's a pathetic but eloquent expression of liberalism tweeted by Mary Katharine Ham from the War on Women/Planned Parenthood rally in Charlotte the other day:
War is hell.By the way, if we're going to vulgarize the culture to the nth degree (does anyone else remember when the word "condom" wasn't uttered in polite company?) can we, for the sake of accuracy, call this by its rightful name, which is vulva, not vagina? You'd think the experts on all things wimmin would at least be acquainted with basic female anatomy. Please ladies, review your copies Our Bodies, Our Selves.
Another inspiring image from the rally:
Stacy McCain's 2010 piece. (It contains one of my favorite quotes ever: "Ain’t that a kick in the head, ladies? The Pill has not only increased your potential for STDs and infertility, but also increased the chances you’ll marry a loser.")
Jonah Goldberg zeros in on "the creepy eye of Ms. Sauron":
Next to the plaza where the Fox set is there’s a stage and riser with a huge Planned Parenthood banner hanging across the top. It features the slogan “Women are Watching” with the “o” in women done up to look like an eye, with properly attended to eyelashes. Bookending that Orwellian slogan: “Yes We Plan 2012 DNC”enlightening words from Newark mayor Cory Booker:
“Then I heard something that is one of the reflections, an echo of some of the most insulting things we’ve been hearing for a long time,” Booker said, referring to watching the convention. “I heard people stand up and say, ‘I love women.’ I heard people stand up: ‘I’ve got a sister. I’ve got a mother.’”"The nation we are" terminates nearly 40% of the pregnancies that would have resulted in the births of beautiful black babies. Shame on you, Mayor Booker. Either you're wilfully blind to the catastrophe that is abortion, or you know better but have sold out to retain your status in the Party of Abortion. Either way, it's hard to respect you.
“That’s like saying you’re not a bigot ’cause you have a black friend,” Booker retorted, drawing cheers and applause from the crowd. “That’s like saying I love Latinos, I go to Taco Bell every week. That is like saying that you are a person that is just and right because you know what, you like Jewish people.”
“But I’ll tell you what you say, you say it with your words,” he continued. “You say it with your lips. You preach it from on high. But when it comes to your actions, when it comes to your deeds, it comes to what you do every day, you are denigrating those very people you claim to love. And so I don’t understand how somebody can say they love women when they are denying women access to health care, when they are denying women strategies to protect their life, when they are implementing policies that undermine all the ground that we have gained,” he concluded, saying he was speaking not only about women’s progress, but also about the country’s progress.
“There’s some people in the Republican party that believe when they say all men are created equal, that they are leaving out women themselves,” Booker said later on in his remarks. “That’s not the nation we are.”
So, just making sure: did all you pro-life husbands, fathers, sons, brothers, and boyfriends get Booker's message? You don't love the women in your lives if you don't love abortion, because Abortion is Love.
Afterthought: Hey, you know who really loves and respects women? Bill Clinton, a.k.a. the sex man, that's who.
