Jared has already done a terrific job of highlighting the most recent advocacy of Denver’s lefty online community ProgressNow, so I don’t need to devote any extra time rehashing their claims that he has so effectively and articulately refuted.
On their website, ProgressNow is touting its sponsored online poll showing 98 percent in favor of Governor Bill Owens signing HB1042, the measure that would require all medical facilities (including religious hospitals with deep pro-life convictions) to provide “emergency contraceptives” to rape victims. Jared highlights well the idiocy of their self-selecting survey, but it only becomes more absurd when you read the way ProgressNow words the question:
Should Governor Owens allow victims of rape to receive information to avoid an unwanted pregnancy? [emphasis added]
In other breaking news (contact the media!), when asked if the Colorado legislature should pass a bill that would allow consumers to shop somewhere other than Wal-Mart, 98 percent of self-described “liberal progressives” expressed their support…. Whoops – fell off my chair laughing!! Thanks, ProgressNow….
Oh, and regarding the contents of this post, 100 percent of Mount Virtus writers, editors and contributors agreed wholeheartedly with the opinions expressed on this site.
