Celebrating Human Tragedy in the City of Brotherly Love
The good news concerning this resolution, if there is any, is that the resolution almost failed with a vote of 9 to 8. Those Council Members who refused to proclaim Philadelphia as a city that is committed to continuing this tragic trend in terminating human life should be thanked (see the voting record).
What should be of significant concern to all citizens is that the resolution was crafted with the assistance of Planned Parenthood, the agency responsible for the greatest number of induced abortions in this country? Is it not a conflict of interest for government officials to be advocating for the works of the primary provider of a service? What would the outcry be if a resolution were passed by the City Council which had been crafted by a Pro-Life agency, even a non-sectarian one?
