Pro-Life Isn't: The Votes Have Consequences Campaign

Former Rep. Marilyn Musgrave is heading up a new campaign, called Votes Have Consequences, which will target certain pro-choice members of Congress in the 2010 election.

The new group is an arm of the Susan B. Anthony List, which has focused on electing anti-abortion women to Congress.

Musgrave and Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the Susan B. Anthony List, said they would mimic tactics that worked for Defenders of Wildlife Action Fund in 2006 against Rep. Richard Pombo of California and in 2008 against Musgrave. In both elections, Defenders' began organizing and running ads months before the election, established local offices, and claimed credit for playing a major role in defeating an incumbent.

"We need to know that the person that we defeat has a scalp that we can hold up high and say their pro-abortion leadership is why they lost," Dannenfelser said.

Yes, because apparently there's no cognitive dissonance at all in using scalping imagery to promote your cause of defending the sanctity of precious human life.

We'll have to keep an eye on this wonderful new campaign, especially since the Susan B. Anthony List's website has a list featuring the pro-life women in Congress, which includes such luminaries as Rep. Michelle "I wish the American media would take a great look at the views of people in Congress and find out, are they pro-America, or anti-America?" Bachmann and Rep. Jean 'It's a great idea to stand on the floor of the House and imply that a fellow Representative and decorated Vietnam veteran is a "coward" who wants to "cut and run" in Iraq' Schmidt. If you can't trust women like that to tell you how to make one of the most important and personal decisions of your life, who can you trust?

First you used the phrase "cognitive dissonance" as if you are expecting those Reps to understand that.

Second, in my mind, there is also something inherently racist about the use of the term scalping in their description.

It's interesting that you mention the racism angle, because when I was on the Susan B. Anthony List's website I did notice that all of the precious darling innocent babies pictured on the site just happened to be white.
