Very good column by Dale Carpenter about how the Gay Left has somehow hijacked the push for gay rights and linked it to the pro-abortion agenda. But this shouldn’t be a big surprise when the Human Rights Campaign picks a pro-abortion lobbyist and fundraiser as its new leader, right?
Abortion Rights are Not Gay Rights – Independent Gay Forum
Typical of gay activists’ reaction to the Roberts nomination was that of Joe Solmonese, executive director of the Human Rights Campaign. Writing for the online edition of the Advocate, Solmonese warned that Roberts “has an extremely disturbing record in opposition to Roe v. Wade,” the historic 1973 Supreme Court decision announcing a constitutional right to abortion. Indeed, abortion has become the litmus test for gay groups in deciding whether to oppose him.
But that’s okay…. the Gay Lefty activists repeatedly align themselves (in our name) with the most fringe elements of society anyway. Pro-communist, anti-capitalist, pro-terrorist, and anti-War on Terror organizations. So why would we be surprised that the pro-abortion movement would hijack our supposed largest gay rights organization and that our so-called gay leaders would blindly consent?

According to the AP, “other abortion rights groups including the National Organization for Women, the National Abortion Federation and the Feminist Majority all have announced their opposition to Roberts.” They should have added the Human Rights Campaign, the abortion rights lobby that targets gay and lesbian donors.
