Focus on the Family: Trump’s Immigrant Prisons Are Bad, But Abortion Is Worse

Jun 20, 2018

By Hemant Mehta

As we continue to learn more about the concentration camps for children, created by Donald Trump with the full support of the Republican Party and, by extension, everyone who continues to vote for them, maybe you were wondering what leaders of the Christian Right were thinking. After all, they’re the ones who insist they support “family values.” They’re the ones who call themselves “pro-life.”

Shouldn’t they be leading the charge in opposition to kids being ripped away from their parents for any reason?

Of course not. That assumes they actually give a damn about these people.

Yesterday, Focus on the Family’s Chief Minister Jim Daly wrote an article arguing that, sure, tearing apart families is bad. But why criticize Trump when he can capitalize on the tragedy and condemn Planned Parenthood instead?

  • @OP – you were wondering what leaders of the Christian Right were thinking.

    What they are thinking, is that the religion/ideology besotted, who are in denial of science and scientific medical advice, need to have their views prioritised over informed experts! – Precisely the position of the Trump Administration.

    When Charlie Gard died, his parents said their son would make a difference to people’s lives for years to come.

    Chris Gard and Connie Yates have spent the months since his death developing ‘Charlie’s Law’.

    They have worked with doctors, ethicists and politicians to try to find a way to avoid other families being taken to court.

    OR more precisely, “To avoid delusional families be taken to court to end abusive treatment of terminally ill children, they have worked with doctors who are prepared to humour them, Vatican inspired pseudo-ethicists, and pandering politicians!

    This comes as leading paediatricians say they are concerned about the effect of such high-profile cases on medics.

    Nutty ideological religious litigation to exploit gullible parents and oppose professional medical advice on treatment, is utterly deplorable, and a vast waste of public money on legal costs!

    These foolish religion besotted parents need to get over the loss of a terminally ill child, and stop being encouraged to delude themselves that magic cures are available!

    Sadly the “pro-life” nutter organisations (who usually have no understanding of medicine, biology or life), will participate in any sort of emotional, mental, or physical abuse of fellow humans, to further their delusional causes!

    Charlie had mitochondrial depletion syndrome, a condition which causes progressive muscle weakness and brain damage. He passed away a few weeks before his first birthday.

    It came after a long, bitter and very public legal battle between his parents and doctors. The [world-leading] medical team at Great Ormond Street had said there was no cure or treatment. But his [amateur wish-thinking] parents wanted to try experimental therapy in the United States.

    Ah! The USA as a source of pseudo-science, pseudo-medical mischief making!

  • There was also the case of ignorant baying sheeple herds, in the case of the terminally ill Alfie Evans’:-

    Reality does not do “other options” on behalf of campaign-funded, deluded theists, or wish-thinking! . . . and UK hospitals try not to inflict months of inhumane treatment on semi-vegetative children on behalf of interfering, deluded, “pro-life” theists!

    I think this makes a clearly asserted statement;
    “Our preoccupation with delusional beliefs, comes before any consideration of abuses or suffering of actual living humans!
