KEN: Say what you want about covid-19, what it means to you, how it’s impacted you. You really have to give the Democrats credit. They have exploited this to a level never before seen in the history of the world. It’s touched everything. Well, actually, covid-19 hasn’t touched everything. But their decisions and the overreach of the government using covid-19 as an excuse has changed everything.
It’s changed your life. It’s in your business, your school, your cars, your grocery stores. Think about it. It’s impacted sports, scouting, entertainment, movies, film. Think about the power that was harnessed by what I like to call “the scamdemic.” Even the NFL, not to mention the other sports — and I don’t know if you heard, but “The Biden administration on Monday announced it will rescind rules requiring people to obtain abortion drugs in-person.”
Well, you know why. Because covid, covid, covid! ‘Cause of the pandemic. This reverses “a Trump administration policy that the Supreme Court reinstituted…” See, here we go again. It’s all tied together. The Supreme Court. In January, they reinstituted that if you want to get abortion drugs, you should obtain them in person.
Which, once again, I don’t really look at that as some type of losing of your rights. “I have to be in person? How dare they!” Yeah. It’s kind of an important decision, right? The FDA Commissioner “said the agency found that allowing patients to receive chemical abortion pills via telemedicine and in the mail would not increase risks and would help mitigate the spread of,” wait for it, “the coronavirus.” Here’s what Rush had to say in 2013.
RUSH: Make no mistake, folks — the reason the left, the political movement that harbors liberalism, the reason they want to do this is precisely to bust up the traditional notion of what is a family. The more they bust that up, the more they steer people to Washington for guidance, dependence, what have you. A lot of people on the left look at you and your family, parents, with contempt. By definition, you don’t have the tools to make the best decisions in life. You’re not smart enough to do what’s good for you. They have to control these circumstances.
You’re a good person, you’re just inept. You’re just not capable. They have to control you. They have to do what they think is best for you. And young girls are gonna have sex, folks, you can’t stop it. And pregnancy is a disease. And we’re losing ground politically on abortion. So let’s, let’s make the morning after pill an abortion pill per se, let’s just make that legal so we don’t have to worry about this anymore. We’ll figure out a way to compensate Planned Parenthood on the down low so they don’t suffer too much, but we’ll deal with that in ways that you won’t even see. The bottom line is, you are too oppressive as a parent. You want to deny your daughters a full life. You just can’t tell kids “no.” It’s not fair. You were a kid once. You know how you felt. You can’t tell a kid “no.”
Who are you to tell your kid “no”? So we are gonna tell your kid “yes.” We liberals, we of the federal government, we of the Democrat Party, your kid wants to do something, we’re there to say, “You do it. We’re behind you. And then we’ll help you deal with the consequences, because your parents really don’t know what’s best for you, and your parents don’t understand you, but we do.” That’s what’s going on here. Well, if you disagree with that, stop and think for a moment. What possible interest in something like this could the Democrat Party have?
Is this not an illustration of what I say I do every day? I get up. I’m minding my own business. I’m not bothering anybody. I check out the news, and I look at all the things I hold dear, the traditions, the institutions, the morality, the behavior, the people that I hold dear under assault. I come here and I defend it. I’m called divisive. So I got up today and I learn that the Democrat Party finally secured the idea that a 15-year-old can now walk into a pharmacy, get a birth control pill, after the fact, morning after birth control pill. If you think I am a little off center on this, ask yourself what possible interest is this to the Democrat Party?
Why do they care? And if you face that question honestly, if you start trying to honestly answer that, then your mind will open up to other possibilities and other things because, seriously, when it comes to having sex, getting pregnant, taking a pill to get rid of the pregnancy, what the hell’s that got to do with Democrat Party? And then when you learn it has everything to do with the Democrat Party because it is about securing financial contributions from the militant feminist groups and female votes and portraying this absurd notion that there’s a Republican War on Women, then you might better understand what is really happening here.
It’s not about women’s health. It’s not about female liberation. The Democrat Party is pushing this. Why? One more sound bite. Jehmu Greene here gets a shot. Martha MacCallum turns to Jehmu Greene, says, “Any of this concern you?”
GREENE: What concerns me is that not all young people, not all teenagers have the relationship that probably Dr. Manny has with his daughter. For those young women who do not have that opportunity to talk to their parents, get their parents involved in this decision, we can’t leave them out there in the cold, and who else has been left out in the cold are all women. When you have the ability for them not to get this over-the-counter, there are barriers by pharmacy hours being, you know, not open at all times, pharmacies not in as many locations for women. This affects all of us.
RUSH: Do you believe this? So Jehmu Greene said (imitating Greene), “Well, what do you mean? Not every family has a responsible parent like Dr. Manny. And so we must take over. We are gonna be the parents. We’re the ones who care ’cause most kids don’t have responsible parents, A.” We can’t leave such kids out in the cold just like we can’t leave illegal immigrants in the shadows. They’ve been left out in the cold. All women, she said, have been left out in the cold. When you have the ability for them not to get this over-the-counter because of pharmacy hours not open all the time, pharmacies not where these women are, you see how unfair this country is? This is obscene, folks.
Let’s go back, March 29th, 2008, Johnstown, Pennsylvania. This is Obama at a town hall meeting.
OBAMA 2008: Look, I’ve got two daughters, nine years old and six years old. I’m gonna teach them, first of all, about values and morals. But! If they make a mistake, I don’t want them punished with a baby. I don’t want them punished with an STD at the age of 16. You know, so it — it — it doesn’t make sense to not give them information.
RUSH: And “information” now equals a morning-after pill. ‘Cause I wouldn’t want, you know I’m gonna teach them morality and all that but I don’t want ’em punished with a baby.” Well, pregnancy is a disease. I mean, feminists have been teaching this.”
