    Pro-Choice Racism?

    Why is the 'pro-choice' party so anti-choice when it comes to School Choice?

    Black and Latino Millennials Overwhelmingly Support School Choice

    Why is it more important for liberals to cower to teacher unions and stand against school choice?

    As I was researching this, it became painfully obvious that most (if not all) of the articles dealing with Blacks and Hispanics and school choice come from conservative or leaning conservative sources.

    Is this yet another case of liberals thinking they know better what's good for other people than the people themselves? In this case, Blacks and Hispanics?

    Why is the 'pro-choice' party not for choice in education?

    Itís slightly disingenuous to frame the question that way. Itís like asking why the pro-life party is so ďpro deathĒ in the case of health care, thinking illegal immigrants and poor people deserve to die because they canít afford food and medical care.

    Maybe because youíre more compassionate than most Republicans, you donít feel that way, but a good many pro-lifers are against EBT and affordable health care.

    The fallacy of equivocation occurs when a key term or phrase in an argument is used in an ambiguous way, with one meaning in one portion of the argument and then another meaning in another portion of the argument. Examples: I have the right to watch "The Real World." Therefore it's right for me to watch the show.

    So, how would you have framed it? The same people who claim to be "pro-choice" seem to be very selective in who gets to choose what.

    Itís like asking why the pro-life party is so ďpro deathĒ in the case of health care, thinking illegal immigrants and poor people deserve to die because they canít afford food and medical care.
    Meh.... that's stretching it.

    Maybe because youíre more compassionate than most Republicans,
    Gosh, you say the sweetest things.

    you donít feel that way, but a good many pro-lifers are against EBT and affordable health care.
    I think there's a difference between
    A) being against a policy that, in many cases, is abused, and is a transfer of wealth, and seems like a bottomless pit of sorts and
    2) allowing minorities to choose which schools their children attend.
