In a previous post, I noted how Fitchburg Mayor Lisa Wong would like to see Planned Parenthood League of Massachusetts open an office at Burbank Hospital. No doubt Ms. Wong believes that a Planned Parenthood clinic would play a vital role in her "revitalization" program for the city.
Mayor Wong's moral compass is in such disarray that while she is deeply concerned about excess trash filling our landfills (saying in one interview that "It seems like everything is being thrown away" - see here), she appears to be totally unconcerned about innocent babies being slaughtered in the womb and thrown away. While recycling is vital for Ms. Wong, preserving the lives of the unborn is not. It was Winifred Egan who said, "What an irony that a society confronted with plastic bags filled with the remains of aborted babies should be more concerned about the problem of recycling the plastic."
The fact that cold, uncaring politicians like Lisa Wong have succumbed to such madness is no reason for the rest of us to follow suit. For Fitchburg's mayor, "The three "R"s in Fitchburg are the Rail, River and the Road.." But she left out an "R" - for Reality.
Nero fiddled while Rome burned.
