‘You can’t stand on the sidelines’


This is a really interesting ‘must read’ on the impact of the Planned Parenthood videos. Ruben Navarrette, Jr. considers, or at least considered, himself pro-choice until the Planned Parenthood videos came out. Now he is not so sure. His wife is pro-life and scolded him. She said,

“You can’t stand on the sidelines, especially now that you’ve seen these videos,” she told me recently. “That’s bullshit! These are babies that are being killed. Millions of them. And you need to use your voice to protect them. That’s what a man does. He protects children—his own children, and other children. That’s what it means to be a man.”

He always thought he needed to defer to women because, after all, the left says it is their bodies and their choices. Now, after the videos, he is starting to question that.
