"Newt Gingrich’s campaign is so dead, Mitt Romney wants to baptize it and Rick Santorum wants to put it in a jar and show it to his kids."
That's the joke that Jimmy Kimmel was going to tell at The White House Correspondent's Dinner. He didn't, but only because an ABC News reporter told him that it could "cause the room to turn against him."
Yup. Jimmy Kimmel thinks dead babies are funny. It's a ghastly ghoulish joke in which I see no possibility of humor. None. But that's why I wish he would've told it.
I don't want this topic of the sacredness of life to be whispered about. I want to see and hear what people actually think about things like 50 million dead babies. I want to hear where pro-aborts find humor in that. I think the more punchlines people hear, the more people will see the truth. And the truth is that many preople don't have any problem whatsoever with the destruction of human beings.
Kimmel's former girlfriend Sarah Silverman recently tweeted a picture of her stomach after she had a big meal and again later when it wasn't sticking out so far - like a before and after pic. She tweeted that she had a "quicky aborsh" or something like that. many were reasonably outraged that anyone would make so light of that topic. But I say, keep those "aborsh" jokes coming because in humor there's truth. And the truth is that many pro-abortion rights folks don't really think ripping babies apart in the womb is that big of a deal. In fact, they laugh at folks who do.
You know all the creased brows and thoughtful looks that pro-abortion rights folks give when they say their cliched favorite lines like "safe, legal and rare" or "I'm personally pro-life?" That's the real joke. And you're the punchline.
Abortions exist best in the dark. Abortionists prefer silence. I say let's bring the light. Let's have the conversation. If people knew what went on in clinics they'd turn away in disgust. And I think that most people would be shocked at the flippant manner in which many deal with issues like life.
Abortion is the conversation that pro-aborts don't want to have. At every turn they seek to silence pro-lifers, not engage them. The media and the Democrat party claim that there's a "war on women" in this country every time that a pro-life bill comes out of committee, never mind actually comes to a vote. But have you ever seen a real intelligent debate about this issue in the media?
No. You want to know why? It's because abortion rights supporters can't win them. And they know it. Earlier this year, infamously pro-abortion rights Marquette theology Professor Dr. Dan Maguire agreed to take part in an abortion debate this coming March.
But two weeks before the debate was scheduled to take place, Dr. Maguire suddenly backed out after learning his opponent would be the fiery pro-lifer Dr. Mike Adams of the University of North Carolina – Wilmington.
He didn't want none of that.
Not only can they not win the debate, pro-aborts typically end up sounding ridiculous and stupid. Remember when Rick Warren held that presidential debate in 2008. He asked Obama point blank when life began. Obama was forced to mumble that it was "above my pay grade." It was a dismissive response but it was one that he was backed into. What he really wanted to say was that he didn't give a darn when life began.
Remember when Obama spoke off teleprompter for about one minute in 2008? What did he drop on us? The "punished with a baby" remark. That's how he sees it.
Since then, it's been nothing but cliches and bumper stickers, even as the Administration attempts to force Catholic institutions to provide coverage for abortifacients. They stick to talking points.
The longer we allow the abortion debate in this country to be spoken in bumper stickers and safe cliches, we lose.
I want them to talk. I want to drag them into conversation. I want them to tell their abortion jokes. Why? Because then people will see how unfunny it all is.
When we see what they think is funny, we'll know what's not.
