Victor Reppert, tireless shill for the liberal establishment and the Democrat party, continues to live up to his well-earned reputation and a political flack and philosophical hack:
Let’s look at some of the highlights—or should I say, lowlights?—of his latest post:
It also abrogated the rights of parents.
Let’s see: whose parents are we talking about, exactly? In context, this would have reference to the parents who tried to abort their own child!
Yes, Victor, conservatives do believe in removing the children from the custody of murderous parents.
In other words, there appear to have been various reasons for voting against this legislation besides wanting the accidental survivors of abortion dead.
Notice that Reppert doesn’t even attempt to establish that this was Obama’s reason for opposing the bill.
That assumes that we can naively assume that a bill does what its title says that it does. That's absurd, as No Child Left Behind demonstratively proves.
That’s really rich coming from an intellectual day-tripper like Reppert. Here’s a little experiment: just compare Reppert’s flyby piece with Jeremy Pierce’s painstaking analysis of Obama’s record on abortion, then ask yourself: which writer did the real spadework?
One final point: although abortion is a very big issue, the stakes are even higher than abortion alone. Abortion is just one element of a eugenic agenda that encompasses abortion, infanticide, euthanasia, stem-cell research, organ-farms, &c.
If Reppert were a real Christian and a real philosopher, instead of a goose-stepping apparatchik for the liberal establishment, he would appreciate the moral dimensions of this debate. Perhaps we should start calling him the Red Philosopher, in honor of his Marxist philosophy—as well as all the innocent blood on his hands.
