Why Are There Always Rainbow Flags At Pro-Abortion Rallies?
BY ALISSA GOLOB
In January of last year, I appeared on Global Television talking about the blatant conflict of interest arising from the recent election of 21-year old homosexual activist Paul Marai as a Catholic School Board Trustee. A few seconds (literally) after the interview was shown, I received an e-mail via Facebook entitled “F*%&$ Yourself”. “Gain some rationality”, the author said. “You’re embarassing (yes, he spelled it that way) your intellect on TV. Learn a thing or two in school before you call homosexuality a disorder. You’re officially the joke of the public”.
Now, some of you might ask yourselves why I, a pro-life activist, would want to stray from my mandate to make abortion unthinkable, to take-on homosexual activists. Scratch that, I know some of you are asking yourselves that, because I ask myself that every time I receive such charming love letters such as the one copied above.
It’s no coincidence that at this year’s National March for Life in Ottawa, the award for most-“ingenious” sign went to a pair of lesbians, who were ostentatiously showing “affection” holding two different card-board cutouts; one that said “I LOVE SEX” and the other, “I HATE LIFE”. Needless to say they were not there for the speeches. While the intention of this couple was clear, and their execution decidedly pedestrian, it was the actual content of their message that spoke volumes not only for them personally, but for the climate of the opposition.
Practically speaking, the pro-abortion and homosexual camps have far more in common than the multi-coloured condoms they shell out to whoever happens to be caught unaware. It is a well-known fact that the homosexual-activist movement has a record of being staunchly pro-abortion. This includes very close social and political ties with pro-abortion powerhouses, including Planned Parenthood, which often includes financial support as well.
It’s no coincidence that many pro-abortion activists advertise their solidarity with gay- friendly groups in an even more overtly public fashion. For example, we are all familiar with those charming ditties that pro-lifers are often faced with at various events and rallies, including the very inclusive, “Gay, straight, black, white! All unite for women’s rights!” And who could forget the chart-topping hit, “anti-woman, anti-gay, right-wing bigots go away”! While these heartwarming toe-tappers sound fairly tame, they, like our sign-toting sideliners at the March for Life, demonstrate the familial relationship between the two groups.
The question is, why?
An essential component of being pro-life is openness to life. On an ideological level, homosexuality tends towards being individualistic; in a practical sense, profoundly sterile. Homosexuality uses sex as an instrument for self-gratifying pleasure, and cannot physically be used in the unitive and procreative way it was intended. When couples “mutually masturbate” for their own gratification, the procreative element is eliminated, thus becoming an inescapable rejection of life. Destruction of life flows naturally from rejection of life. Both camps strive for the acceptance of sex without consequence. It’s a match made in heaven.
What is truly ironic is that those individuals militantly pushing for acceptance under the guise of “human rights” have denied those same rights to the ones who need it the most: the unborn. It does not follow that a pro-lifer should celebrate “pride”, when that so-called “pride” is rooted in the erosion of the family and extermination of the unborn.
Now, I may have to learn a thing or two in school (such as exact and heuristic algorithms, spectroscopy, astrophysics and quantum theory to name a few) however, the undeniable link between homosexuality and abortion- now that’s a course worth taking.
