Abortion groups hypocritical

It is ironic that abortion rights group, Equity Forward, has used the platform of “concern ” for illegal immigrants and their children, to try to disparage the work of Cathy McMorris Rodgers.

Instead of spending “six figures” on ads, maybe the money could be better used to find these children (some whom have no responsible parents to send them back to) a real home where they will be safe and cared for. No loving parent would put their child in such jeopardy as sending them into a country knowing it was illegal and just “hoping” everything would be peachy.

This country has done everything possible to provide for these children. It is proven that the propaganda of putting them in cages is not true. Cathy McMorris Rodgers has worked very hard on legislation to take care of the children and their “parents” in a humane and legal way. It seems with the Congress we have now, just about nothing gets accomplished.

Instead of fighting for abortions, how about fighting for adoption and other alternatives for unborn babies. I encourage voters to consider the source when these ads start coming out.

Their so-called outrage at family separations is incongruent with their true motive of permanently separating unborn babies from the wombs of their mothers.

I find their effort here to attack hypocritical and quite frankly, repulsive!
