I didn’t watch the awards ceremony for Morgentaler. It’s a very busy season, right now, but even if it weren’t, I’d probably prefer root canal.
I note from this article that Morgentaler
was praised as “a catalyst for change and important debate.”
Important debate, yes. Except that my opponents have been arguing since I was born that there is no debate. That’s over, done. Resolved. No one questions “abortion rights.”
Summarizing, then, the freedom of speech issue–when you support abortion, you are a catalyst for an important debate. When you are against abortion you are a pesk, some spending time in jail, others sidelined from their working spheres, be it politics, law, medicine or journalism.
Again, euphemisms are the hallmark of the “abortion rights” world. It’s almost exclusively through concealing what they stand for that they win.
Véronique adds: The headline of the day, from my local French newspaper (Le Droit). A quote, presumably taken from the award ceremony (I couldn’t say, I was not invited.):
Une société plus humaine” (A more humane society).
With less humans in it.
That makes sense. Doesn’t it?
