Abortion has struck a chord with a liberal commentator who normally is at odds in philosophy with ESH.
A Texas bill to ban abortions after 20 weeks and strengthen abortion clinic safety regulations may have been blocked last week by filibustering teenage mom State Senator Wendy Davis, but Tuesday, it got support from a seemingly unlikely source: Democratic strategist and liberal commentator Kirsten Powers.
Writing for The Daily Beast, Powers criticized Davis for defending “a medical procedure—elective late-term abortion—that most of the civilized world finds barbaric and abhorrent.”
Powers, a regular on Fox News Special Report at the 6PM ET hour, was particularly critical of the rest of the drive by state run media ignoring the Kermit Gosnell trial earlier this year. It appears she shamed some of them into doing what they are paid to do.
“It’s amazing what is considered heroism these days,” Powers wrote. She quoted Peggy Noonan, who responded to the abortoholic Twitter hashtag “#StandWithWendy” by saying, “What she is … standing for is something we would recognize as infanticide, late-term abortion, the taking of a little child’s life.”
Wrote Powers, “Standing for that is not heroic, and it is not something to be cheered.”
ESH haeartily agrees with Powers, for a change he can live with.
