NY Senator: Honor Mother’s Day by supporting pro-abortion group

There was a time that I was naive enough to think that Mother’s Day would be one occasion that the pro-abortion lobby would lay low, but that assumption left the building long ago thanks to things like this:

Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, a New York Democrat, has a great idea for you when it comes to honoring your other for Mother’s Day. She thinks the best thing you can do is make a donation to one of the wealthiest pro-abortion groups in the country.

In an email she sent this afternoon, Gillibrand primes the ump for donations for Emily’s List, a leading pro-abortion political action committee, using Mother’s Day as he reason for supporting them.

“This Mother’s Day, I can’t think of a better way to honor all the mothers in the country — past and present — than with a contribution to EMILY’s List,” Gillibrand writes. “They’re the ones working tirelessly to elect the pro-choice Democratic women who are making sure that our freedoms are protected for generations to come.”

If you’re a bit of a self-loathing type who wants to honor your mom tomorrow, give a gift in her name to the organization that would have been happy to help relieve her of the burden of, well, you.

What’s next, Senator? A pitch for donations to the King George III Foundation on the 4th of July?

You’ll not find a single voice of dissent among the human beings who are on the receiving end of this “freedom,” because they can’t speak, and never will. Being on the side of an issue where those who are most affected by your position are eliminated before they’re able to vote on it would seem to violate the idea of “fairness” that Sen. Gillibrand claims to strive for in other areas.

Gillibrand and Emily’s list aren’t alone. Planned Parenthood also has their hands out for Mother’s Day. Or maybe brunch is more your thing.

Also, Sandra Fluke and the National Women’s Law Center wants you to honor moms this Mother’s Day by sharing your contraception anecdotes. No, seriously.
