Democrats hold one thing — and one thing only — sacred, and that is abortion. Our diplomats may be murdered abroad, the rule of law may be grossly violated at home, the First Amendment may be written off as just another roadblock on the freeway to utopia, but abortion will always have for them a uniquely holy status — even if that means employing unholy methods to facilitate it. Thus Senator Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut has introduced a bill, cosponsored by a majority of Senate Democrats, that would purport to strip states of their ability to impose even the most basic of health and safety regulations on the grisly procedure, a bill that David French has rightly suggested should be titled the Kermit Gosnell Enabling Act of 2014.
Well, luckily, if you’re a Randian Objectivist (I no longer consider myself to be such, and maybe I never was), that’s not a problem. Rand did not consider unborn children to be alive or possessing any rights whatsoever, and of course any attempt to regulate the operators of abortion mills against their will would constitute the prohibited (by Randians) initiation of force against them.
So. No evil there. Keep right on walking, citizen. And sleep well.
