Anti-Choicers Complain About Hyperbole?

Scott Swenson

I’m always amused when anti-choice bloggers scream about hyberbole and exaggeration, concepts they practically invented. Suzanne at Big Blue Wave doesn’t understand the nuance of Jill at Feministe and her comparison of anti-choice policies in the U.S. and China. Suzanne rails about liberal hyperbole and cites example after example of how pro-lifers have stood up against China’s one-child policy. That wasn’t the point, forced pregnancy is no different than limiting the number of children, both policies ignore the mother’s wishes, and both policies undermine democracy and pluralism.

Sorry Suzanne, anti-choicers have more in common with China than you think.
