If anyone doubts that we truly live in Orwellian times, Rod Serling would like to submit this New York Times op-ed title for your consideration.
"Pregnancy Kills. Abortion Saves Lives." The New York Times
The obvious parallel is George Orwell's War is Peace, Freedom is Slavery, Ignorance is Strength.
Now the Old Gray Lady offers us an addendum.
War is Peace, Freedom is Slavery, Abortion is Life.
"Pregnancy is a life-threatening condition. Women die from being pregnant. We have known that for thousands of years," Warren M. Hern writes.
Life is, more accurately, a life-threatening condition.
People die from eating, from breathing and from walking down the street.
They also, it goes without saying, die from abortions.
Just ask Kermit Gosnell.
"Vagueness and confusion are tools of tyranny," Hern writes without a quibble of irony.
