The Susan B. Anthony and other pro-life groups oppose the appointment of Dawn Johnsen to the White House Office of Legal Counsel. Johnsen’s pro-abortion rhetoric is nothing less than insulting to women, whom she insists are “fetal containers,” “inevitable losers in the contraceptive lottery.”
Giving new life is one of the noblest gifts of womanhood. It is our innate nature to protect the weak and defenseless, especially our own young. Johnsen’s rhetoric demeans women, our best selves – and dehumanizes both us and our children.
Unfortunately, this is precisely the sort of persons President Obama is surrounding himself with, staffing his White House with. This is the tenor of the new administration.
