Regarding the April 19 Point of View “Governing by mendacity”: Gene Nichol does not like the way we are being governed because some folks are questioning some of the sacred cows of liberalism – unrestricted taxpayer-funded abortion, continued voter fraud, restrictions on religious freedom and unrestrained spending on social welfare programs.
How he concluded that by requiring a woman to wait an extra day to have an abortion threatens her safety is beyond me. Just out of curiosity, I wonder where Nichol stands on late-term abortion. Does he support this ghastly procedure in the name of “choice”?
What I enjoy the most about his piece is how he castigated others for repeating an inaccurate mantra in hopes that it will be accepted as truth. This is exactly what he does. Trying to portray necessary measures to ensure electoral integrity as “voter suppression” is one example, and his silly statement that because we have not expanded Medicaid “people will be lying in the parking lot outside the emergency room” is another.
Pieces like Nichol’s add nothing constructive to the necessary discussions that should take place to solve some of our pressing problems.
