Well, this is a new low. I ran across this blog post from a few months back, discussing the Imus situation:
Anytime a person is negatively labeled because of gender or race, this affronts our shared human dignity. And we should be especially careful here, for this has not always been such an obvious evil. It took the civil rights and women’s rights movements to raise our awareness, and the work is not yet finished.
Okay, sounds reasonable. So far. However, he continues:
There is another assault on human dignity at work in our midst, only this one based on geography. A whole class of persons has only provisional rights, all because of where they live.
Who is this class of people? The unborn.
Yes, the hypocrisy is astounding. While he argues that “the work is not finished” regarding respect for our shared human dignity, he’s managed to strip pregnant women of any dignity at all–reducing them to simply an address. Not even a “vessel” or other flowery language like some other abortion foes–just a generic shelter.
Man, between this and Behe, my irony meter is smoking this week…
