Via Unrepentant Old Hippie, I found this tale of an anti-choice blog gone wild. Does anyone else find this passage fishy?
She waited FOUR YEARS before starting a fake blog to deal with her grief? Talk about having unresolved issues. Most people have healed and moved on after between one year and three. I don’t think grief alone was a motivator here.Let’s hope things don’t come to this, but don’t underestimate the anti-choice fascists. They won’t stop until they’ve rolled back the clock to 1952, minimum. Required reading on what that would look like, here.Meanwhile, even though Dr. Tiller’s clinic is closed, elsewhere on the frontlines the Lord’s work goes on. (Read John Irving’s The Cider House Rules to get the reference.)Let the lies, backpedaling and strange scapegoating begin. Stormfront and Operation Rescue are having kittens! Both kinds of fascists are saying the same thing now that their rhetoric has borne its inevitable fruit. Coincidence? Of course not.And lest we forget what’s REALLY at the bottom of all this violence and madness, here’s a timely reminder. It’s the HATE, stupid!Garbage in, garbage out. Isn’t it time to take out the trash?
Beushausen said she really did lose a son shortly after birth in 2005. She started her blog in March to help deal with that loss and to express her strong anti-abortion views, she said.She had expected only a handful of friends to read it, but when her first post got 50 comments, she was hooked.“I’ve always liked writing. It was addictive to find out I had a voice that people wanted to hear,” Beushausen said.“Soon I was getting 100,000 hits a week, and it just got out of hand,” she said. “I didn’t know how to stop. … One lie led to another.”
