Science Fiction author John C. Wright, a convert from Atheism to Catholicism, asks an intriguing ongoing question about the March for Life: the zero coverage it receives:
My question for the reader is this: why can the Morlocks not even admit the size and vehemence of the opposition here?
What is gained by pretending we do not exist?
Or, to ask a more precise question, would not striking the pose that they are opposing such a large and bold movement allow them to portray themselves as heroes, and gain them more?
They cower before the weather, and before the Koch Brothers, which do not threaten them at all, but these marches display the strength of a society that bids fair to abolish abortion in our lifetimes.
The young and highly motivated survivors of the antinatal holocaust are gathering, and they see the economic disaster overpopulation scaremongers have done them, they can see the demographic disaster of Europe.
Why do the Left pretend real threats to their hellish hegemony do not exist, but flaunt in comical excesses of emotion their pantomimes gestures of exaggerated opposition to utterly unreal and imaginary dangers?
Go here to read the rest. It has always been the conceit of the pro-abort movement that their cause commands overwhelming support and it is only fat evangelical preachers, evil Catholic priests and a few fanatics who oppose them. The March for Life, with all its hundreds of thousands of marchers, most of them young and female, give the lie to this wishful thinking. Hence the pretense that they do not exist, rather the same fashion in which the pro-aborts treat the unborn child. Additionally, do not ever underestimate the sheer hatred that most of the mainstream media has for the pro-life cause. If coverage will help pro-lifers, coverage will not be given. Recall how the media had to be shamed into giving any coverage to Kermit Gosnell and his little abortion clinic of horrors. Pro-aborts like to pretend that most pro-lifers simply do not exist, and if some of them had their way, we would not. Movements dedicated to solving social problems through mass slaughter tend not to be picky, long term, as to how they deal with adversaries.
