Heather MacDonald of the New York Post has a piece attempting to figure out what she calls the madness of liberal moralizing. In the world of the left a 15 year old is mature enough to buy the one pill version of the morning after abortion pill. That same 15 year old isn’t mature enough for the two pill version of the morning after abortion pill. The 15 year old also isn’t mature enough to smoke a cigarette until she’s 18, some liberals want to make that 21. The 15 year old in question isn’t mature enough to have a glass of wine until she’s 21. In liberals minds no one is mature enough for a 17oz Coke nor are we mature enough for raw milk cheese or unpasteurized pancetta from Italy.
The FDA is investigating age restrictions for caffeinated beverages. So our 15 year old, who by liberal logic is mature enough to have sex and take one morning after abortion pill but not two is nonetheless not mature enough to drink an energy drink or perhaps a cup of coffee. Over in Europe the EU wants to criminalize seeds which aren’t registered with the government. How long before our left decides this is a terrific idea in order to protect those who aren’t mature enough, all of us apparently, to eat vegetables grown by unregistered seeds?
We all know the common denominator here is sex and abortion, both of which the left will defend in nearly all circumstances. As far as the left is concerned any 15 year old is mature enough for sex and aborting a baby without her parents knowledge but at the same time they want to throw parents in the slam for giving their kid a glass of wine. The logic only makes sense in light of the left’s obsession with free sex and baby killing. Neither of which the left would care about but for the fact that they help tear down Christian society and further leftist agendas, particularly the left’s eugenics agenda.
We’ve been treated to leftist hypocrisy in the news just this week. The sexual enslavement of three women in Cleveland resulted in several dead babies that were buried in the back yard. The media was very concerned and outraged over this. Yet the same media isn’t covering the Kermit Gosnell trial. Gosnell is an abortionist who killed late term babies out of the womb. The man kept a pair of pickled baby feet in a jar on his desk. The left-wing media isn’t interested in this story in the least but the babies who were killed by a slime ball kidnapper are to be mourned. Both situations are outrageous but the left refuses to be outraged over the grisly details of an abortion clinic because to be outraged over the death and gore of an abortion clinic would call into question the entire practice of abortion.
The left loves to regulate our lives, they love to tell us what we can and can’t do. We can’t have cheese made with raw milk, we can’t have a glass of wine until we’re 21, we can’t have a 17oz pop in New York City, we couldn’t have foie gras for awhile in Chicago etc. But at 15 the left will defend the maturity and right of a girl to have sex and kill her baby without parental consent. She isn’t mature enough of course for two pills, just one. She also isn’t mature enough to quit school, truancy laws keep her in school until at least 16 if not 17 or 18 depending on where she lives. She also isn’t mature enough for a R rated film. But she can get a baby killing pill. The moral relativism of the left is appalling.
