Two figures from MSNBC drew the comparison between the Taliban and the American pro-life movement in the wake of the militant group’s takeover of Afghanistan earlier this month.
The west was well aware when the Taliban moved in that they were likely to resume their enforcement of repressive laws that require women to appear covered in public, only leave their homes if escorted by a male, and forbid them from serving in public posts or going to school.
To those perhaps unfamiliar with the moral arguments against abortion, this severe misogyny is somehow comparable to opposing the destruction of unborn life in the womb.
Faithwire reported that MSNBC contributor Dean Obeidallah declared in a recent piece that “the Taliban aren’t the only ones trying to impose their will on women’s bodies and choices.”
“Over the last few days, the airwaves have been filled with Republicans voicing their deep concern over the rights of the women of Afghanistan,” he explained. “And yet, I have to wonder where these voices were when extremists, based on a narrow reading of their religion’s beliefs, enacted a law that forces a woman who was raped to carry the fetus of the rapist to term?”

They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
