Jesse Helms: Defender of the Silent or Moron of the Century?
I like Republican living as much as the next guy...the complaining about taxes...complaining about big government...complaining about liberals...
But I can't STAND Jesse Helms. Talk about a closed-minded, dillusional moron. If he had his way we'd still most likely have a slave-driven economy. Yould would think having lived through the Civil War would have changed his mind...
Mr. Helms had the audacity to compare abortion to the September 11th attacks and (get this) the holocaust. I could be wrong on this one so feel free to correct me but...abortions are legal (right?). And terrorist activities and the slaughter of thousands for race isn't (right?).
Newsflash: NO ONE LIKES ABORTIONS It's not some crazy stunt people do for fun. In a perfect world, as Toni put a few post ago, every child would be wanted, loved and taken care of by sane people. Sadly, this is not the case. You can either live in reality or deny it. Jesse Helms does not live in reality--my reality anyway. Maybe in Richville, NC every pregnancy is wanted. But according to the 2004 census not all of America lives in Richville. And I have a sneaking suspicion that there might have been a handful of "unexpected" babies even in Richville.
No one wants abortions. But until someone smarter than any of us comes up with an idea to ensure all babies are: wanted by the parents, loved by the parents and will be taken care of by the parents we need to admit that a life where a child is not loved, wanted or taken care of is no life at all.
