Carry On: The Irony Is Thick

Matthew over at Creative Minority Report tips us off that for the first time since 1995 more Americans describe themselves as "pro-life" vs. "pro-choice" (51% -42%) according to a Gallup poll. While it's still up in the air what the exact definition of "pro-life" means in the context of this poll, it's still an encouraging trend. Matthew concludes:
So don't stop talking about it, blogging about it, and trying to convince people. We're winning. It's going to be a long battle. But one we must win.
Now contrast that with this little bit of cheerleading from the unlikeliest of sources ... Hillary Clinton.
NEW YORK (AP) - Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton urged college graduates on Wednesday to resist the temptation to disengage from world affairs, saying to do so would "cede the field to those whose ideologies are absolutely anathema to people of conscience and faith all over the world."
The irony is thick. This is the same woman who lavished praise on racist and eugenicist Margaret Sanger for giving birth to what became Planned Parenthood (pun intended), and who is helping to export abortion as the primary tool of our foreign policy in the world.

These are words that can and should be turned around and used against those who would wipe out what's left of the foundations of our society. So for once I'll agree with Hillary. We should not "cede the field" to those ideologies that are "anathema to people of conscience and faith".

Somebody just needs to instruct her what those ideologies actually are.
