Misplaced Priorities

When you see or hear the phrase "the nation's priorities," what do you think of? Border security? Welfare reform? The War on Terrorism? Education? Tax relief? Health care?

I'll bet that nowhere on your list of priorities is "kill defenseless babies," right? Well, evidently, we're "out of touch with the nation's priorities."

Here's the scoop. President Bush appointed Eric Keroack, a Massachusetts Ob/Gyn, to head the Office of Population Affairs. He is currently the head of A Woman's Concern, a Christian nonprofit organization that offers free pregnancy testing, ultrasounds, and counseling. And Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood Federation of America, is unhappy about this appointment.
"The appointment of anti-birth control, anti-sex education advocate Dr. Eric Keroack to oversee the nation's family planning program is striking proof that the Bush administration remains dramatically out of step with the nation's priorities," Cecile Richards, president of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, said in a statement.
So... thinking that easy access to birth control might just lead to out-of-wedlock pregnancy and abortion is wrong? Thinking that a cavalier attitude towards sex is demeaning to women and men is "out of step"? Thinking that a human life is a human life, before or after birth, is draconian?

Cecile... YOU are the one out of step with the nation's priorities. Most people in this country believe there should be more restrictions on abortion (if not made illegal outright). Most people believe that a child's right to live trumps a woman's right to sleep around and not care about the consequences.

Oh, yeah... most people think your organization should lose federal funding... how out of step with the nation's your priorites would that be?
