Tennessee legislators have come up with a monument that is going to have liberals foaming at the mouth — and surprisingly, it has nothing to do with the Confederacy.
According to WREG-TV, the Tennessee Senate passed a bill which would create a monument to aborted unborn children on state Capitol grounds.
From Conservative Post:
The Monday vote wasn’t even close, with 23 voting for and three voting against the measure.
The monument, titled “Tennessee Monument to Unborn Children, In Memory of the Victims of Abortion: Babies, Women, and Men,” will be built with private funds.
However, the location — on the grounds of Tennessee’s Capitol — is going to have liberals fuming.
GOP Rep. Bill Dunn noted that the Capitol already has monuments to victims of slavery and the Holocaust, and likened abortion to the “brand of inhumanity” both of those evils represented.
“Both of these monuments that are already here recognize that atrocities occurred because human beings were treated as less than human,” Dunn told the Tennessee Star.
“In both cases, the vulnerable and defenseless were subjected to the will of the powerful.”
The most powerful voice in abortion rights, Planned Parenthood, was decidedly unhappy.
