Coulter claims, “I am totally pro-life.” But then, why does she always attack pro-lifers? What explains her 15-year opposition to the pro-life movement?
Did you know that pro-lifers are putzes? Ann Coulter says you are!
Referring to the current furor over Planned Parenthood’s selling body parts from aborted fetuses, launching of congressional investigations, and attempts to stop funding of Planned Parenthood, Coulter chides the so-called (in her eyes) bravery of politicians who are behind the times, saying,
“… their big thing is to keep talking about this abortion thing. Well, that’s great if it were 1977. I’d think you’re really brave and you’re doing a great thing. But I kind of think you’re just a putz imitating what was good forty years ago at this point.”
Sorry, Ann, but “this abortion thing” is a big deal, especially now, when the entire country is horrified by what recently released videos reveal. (Much like the public is horrified by the Kathryn Steinle murder, a media frenzy Coulter is all too keen to exploit and take credit for.)
Instead of doing the right thing – protecting the lives of those most vulnerable – Coulter would have Congress do nothing but pursue her immigration agenda. (Build fences while babies die!)
In 2000, Coulter vilified GOP presidential candidate Gary Bauer and other pro-lifers who were seeking a constitutional remedy to abortion. Her essay was titled, “Must Christian conservatives be fascists?” Coulter’s purpose was to preserve George W. Bush’s candidacy from the wrath of the abortion industry.
Ever since, Coulter has subordinated pro-life considerations to whatever matters she considers more immediate or more expedient. Coulter has, in fact, rejected many potential pro-life candidates for others she deemed more electable.
Coulter blamed pro-lifers for Republican defeat in 2012, writing, “Can you learn to say, ‘no exceptions’ or rather, ‘no abortions with exceptions for rape, incest and the life of the mother?’ Learn that. Memorize that. Stop waxing philosophical when you’re running to make laws.”
Yes, Coulter blamed pro-lifers for Romney’s defeat: “The last two weeks of the campaign were consumed with discussions of women’s ‘reproductive rights,’ not because of anything Romney did, but because these two idiots [Akin and Mourdock] decided to come out against abortion in the case of rape and incest.”
Moreover, Coulter thinks life in the womb is a “philosophical” argument and wants pro-lifers to be pragmatic by permitting human beings who are conceived in rape to be aborted. Coulter’s disregard for human life is clear in her pretzel-twisted logic:
“No law is ever going to require a woman to bear the child of her rapist. Yes, it’s every bit as much a life as an unborn child that is not the product of rape. But sentient human beings are capable of drawing gradations along a line.”
Last year, Coulter offered a talking point for Republican candidates:
“Yes, of course there should be exceptions in the case of rape and incest, and I also support giving rapists the death penalty, unlike my Democrat opponent, who wants to give rapists the right to vote.”
Still, Coulter has the temerity to claim, “I am totally pro-life.”
