Personally, I’m sure that Mary Cheney deserves all the privacy and respect that was given to Terri and Michael Schaivo. I guess that’s not a happy, glowing Liberal position, but fuck them.
When Mary Cheney was asked about her pregnancy in Manhattan this week, she responded, "This is a baby. This is a blessing from God. It is not a political statement. It is not a prop to be used in a debate by people on either side of an issue. It is my child." Now, the Rude Pundit’s not sure how Mary Cheney conceived, but he’s pretty sure that "blessing from God" would not be high on the list, unless, of course by "God" you mean "medical science."
How many embryos are now frozen that are from the donor sperm and Mary Cheney’s eggs? What will happen to those embryos? How many potential babies will be destroyed or held in suspended animation so Mary Cheney can have a baby?
Yeah, there’s lots of things that Mary Cheney’s pregnancy and discussion of it are relevant to, despite Dick Cheney’s pig grunts of protest to Wolf Blitzer. But God ain’t one of those things, save for the political reasons of even invoking God, a line tossed out there like a deflowered virgin for the yahoo masses to endlessly ravish.
