Sally Jenkins Gets Some Parts Of It Right
You know what we really need more of? Famous guys who aren't embarrassed to practice sexual restraint, and to say it out loud. If we had more of those, women might have fewer abortions. See, the best way to deal with unwanted pregnancy is to not get the sperm in the egg and the egg implanted to begin with, and that is an issue for men, too -- and they should step up to that.
That was Sally Jenkins, Sports columnist for the Washington Post, writing about Tim Tebow. And while she may be totally off base as to her position on abortion, her comments on the importance of men taking some responsibility for their actions is right on point. In fact after reading her comments, I think men now have a good rejoinder to the tired old attack by the feminists that this is strictly a woman's issue, and men need not submit a thought, an opinion, or a viewpoint.
As for the rest of the NOW crowd and their insane attacks on Tim Tebow's mom, they have done for the pro-life effort what sadly 350,000 Americans marching on the Capitol could not - put the pro-life issue on the front page AND make the pro-abortion or pro-choice side look like the fools they are. Lets face it, the media is not going to criticize the pro-abortion side or their political allies. And like dutiful stooges, the media for the most part, ignored the marches, rallies and remembrances throughout the country this past January 22. After all it would not seem proper for the nation to know that its citizens had not accepted the results of Roe after 37 years. Combine this information with the knowledge that abortion hurts women and kills a baby and people might re-think the "I am personally opposed, but..." approach. They might actually consider adopting a pro-life perspective.
So - thank you Mrs Tebow, Tim and Focus on the Family,for making the commercial ....and for all you wacko pro-abortionists for deciding to attack the commercial and thus allowing the nation to actually have a discussion on the most critical issue facing the country.
