Imagine if the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights hired the former spokesman for the National Socialist Movement, the nation’s largest neo-Nazi organization, to be its deputy director for public affairs.
It would be the moral equivalent of the decision by the Obama administration’s Department of Health and Human Services to hire the former mouthpiece for Planned Parenthood, which aborts nearly 300,000 unborn children each year, to be its new Deputy Assistant Secretary for Public Affairs.
HHS waited until near the close of business yesterday to announce that Tait Sye, who spent four and a half years defending Planned Parenthood’s yearly slaughter of innocents, had joined its staff.
Sye will handle communications for three HHS agencies – the Food and Drug Administration, the National Institutes of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
But he is almost certain to wade into issues involving abortion and contraception, which he previously handled for Planned Parenthood, a 10-minute cab ride away from his new posting at HHS headquarters.
Interestingly, in its weekend eve announcement of Sye’s appointment, there’s nary a quote from HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius welcoming the new guy to her executive staff.
Maybe it’s because she’s a little concerned about that her appointment of a man complicit in the infanticide of more than 1.3 million innocents during his tenure at Planned Parenthood might blowback on HHS; might reflect badly upon her boss, the president.
Well, she’s mighty right about that.
Sye’s hiring deepens the enmity the pro-life community has with the Obama administration – which believes the putative right to abortion-on-demand trumps the unalienable right to “Life” (along with “Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness”) the nation’s founders affirmed in the Declaration of Independence.
“Personnel is policy,” Charmaine Yoest, President of Americans United for Life, told Politico. “This is one more example of how intertwined the Obama administration is with the abortion industry and Planned Parenthood.”
That’s why the upcoming presidential election is so important. The only way to break up the unholy alliance of which Yoest spoke is a personnel change in the Oval Office.
