Is The Left Really Pro-Choice?

Unlike those of us on the Right who are staunchly pro-life (as I am), those on the Left who consider themselves pro-choice argue that a woman should have the right to choose whether or not she brings a pregnancy to term. They believe that a woman should control whether she should be “burdened” with giving birth and bearing the responsibility of raising a child, if this is not her desire. And so, many Americans, especially on the Left, support the right of a woman to choose whether “the fetus” lives or dies. And, most Democrats in our government, including our Commander-in-Chief, support this idea.

Yet, recently, tens of thousands of children have crossed over into our country illegally, and I am expected to take responsibility for them. They have been abandoned here by their birth parents and my tax money is expected to be used to care for them. I would argue that this is a burden that I do not want, nor have I planned for it. This is an infringement on my right to choose whether or not to raise or support these children.  But, lately, the only “choice” we are given from Democrats, is the “choice” to support the President in handing over our hard earned tax dollars in the form of a $3.5 billion aid package. I do not hear them supporting my right — nor the rights of any American citizens — to choose to decline in this case. These children have become not only my burden but the burden of the American people.

If the point is that a person should have the right to determine whether or not they bear the burden of raising children, then where are the pro-choice advocates in this case? We need you at the border now!
