In light of the election of Massachusetts Republican Scott Brown to the U.S. Senate yesterday, the howlings of the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice (RCRC) may be irrelevant. It looks increasingly unlikely that any kind of health care reform will be passed this year, but the RCRC is still fighting to make sure that the Hyde Amendment gets subverted and abortion funded, whether directly or indirectly. The Rev. Carlton Veazey, the priest of Moloch who leads RCRC, put out a statement meant to mark the 37th anniversary of Roe v. Wade that is stuffed full of the usual pro-abortion boilerplate, but one item stands out:
The Senate provision is unworkable: it requires everyone covered by a plan that has any connection to government funding to write two separate checks, one for abortion services and a separate one for everything else covered by the plan.
So let me get this straight: Veazey thinks that the average person (who will usually be female) is too stupid to handle the writing of two checks for insurance premiums.
Let me put it another way: Veazey, speaking in his capacity as leader of an organization that counts the Episcopal Church, the PCUSA, and the UCC among its members, believes that the 2000-page Senate health reform plan is unworkable because it requires people to write two checks.
That’s the RCRC: embodying contempt for women and cheering the deaths of unborn children since 1973.
