The Pro-Lie Movement

What can you say about a movement that promotes and passes a law banning any legal penalty for doctors who lie to pregnant women about the health of their fetus? Because see, if a doctor honestly tells a woman that her fetus has serious birth defects, who knows, she might make the personal and legal decision to not bring that fetus to term.

What can you say about a movement that indignantly opposes laws that compel organizations that pose as women's health clinics to honestly disclose that they will never under any circumstances, provide information or referrals for contraception or abortion? They are deeply offended that these 'clinics' will not be allowed to string vulnerable women along with promises of 'just one more test' before they get the referral they came for until, oops, it's too late.

What can you say about a movement that fiercely condemns any attempt to link them with the terrorists and assassins who flock to their banner, but run websites with all the information about doctors and clinic staff needed to track them down and murder them while repeatedly using terms like 'baby-killer', 'holocaust' and 'mass murder' with predictable results?

The truth will set you free, but when the truth is that there are safe and legal medical procedures that allow women to control their own bodies and reproductive choices then the truth just gets in the way.
