Rights?


A [largely rhetorical] question for anti-choicers
There's something I've been wondering about: Anti-choicers (or "pro-lifers" as they call themselves) who stick their noses where they don't belong, i.e., in other people's business regarding unwanted pregnancies, and fight for the rights of the unborn...um, what would these same folks feel if the fetus they save is gay?
They're dedicated to abolishing the choice of abortion, and among their reasons is that they're fighting for the rights of someone [the unborn] who cannot do that for themselves. That's lovely...but I'm willing to bet that the vast majority of anti-choicers are also homophobes, anti-gay marriage, anti-gay equality, etc.
So what happens if they manage to "save" an innocent unborn baby from abortion, and then that baby turns out to be gay? Are they going to hang around and fight for its rights? I doubt it.
With all this in mind, SmartAssProducts.com came up with a line of pro-choice merchandise that's also pro-gay: If the fetus you save is gay, will you still fight for its rights?
I really like this because it addresses one of the biggest hypocrisies in the so-called "pro-life" movement. If they're so concerned with other people's rights, where are they when those innocent little unborn babies grow up to be gay? Somehow, I seriously doubt I'll ever see any anti-choice zealots protesting unfair treatment of gays...
