I can agree with some of CREDO’s positions (such as not using dangerous chemicals on our food), but can not support an organization that supports the killing of innocent human beings. CREDO obviously is infected with the same juvenile, hypocritical intolerance typical of many liberals…evidenced by the inflammatory and outrageous statement that “extremists” voting on an “anti-choice” bill to redefine rape is an “attack” on women. It apparent to me that “pro-choice”, as defined by liberals, means people have the RIGHT to CHOOSE…ONLY as long as they choose to support abortion. If they exercise their RIGHT to CHOOSE to NOT support abortion, then they are demonized and called “extremists” who “attack” women. How so many people can be blind to this obvious double-standard, this INTOLERANCE to any beliefs or positions that are different than their own while demanding that everyone has the right to live and believe as they want to is beyond me. Honestly, watching the political discourse in this country is like observing children on the playground…cliques and temper-tantrums and name-calling…I can’t believe this is the America I grew up loving and believing was the best country in the world. PROGRESSIVE? I don’t think so…progress means moving forward, not regressing to elementary-level tactics.
And so, in light of this, I do not wish to receive any more emails from CREDO. Please, consider my opinion with an open mind, if that is at all possible for you, before labeling me one of those “extremist” right-wing nut-jobs who are out to “attack” women…I am a woman, and I am exercising my RIGHT to CHOOSE – and I choose to believe that human life begins at conception, that every embryo is unique in his or her own DNA and has the potential, if not destroyed, to become something wonderful. What if, in one of these abortions you so passionately fight for, the one human being who could have cured cancer was killed? Or the group of people, had they been allowed to live, who could have established world peace, now are tossed out like trash…and what if your own mother had chosen to kill YOU…do you ever think about that? This is what I have chosen to believe, can you put to practice what you preach and let me believe it without resorting to calling me names…can you be tolerant of MY beliefs?
