Colorado progressives have jumped the shark on Orwellian doublethink with their latest political slogan: “Abortion is good.”
Try telling that to the woman who has desperately tried to have children and almost carried to term but had to choose between her own life and the life of her child if it was “good.”
The decision to terminate a pregnancy is a very serious, literally life or death decision.
There’s nothing good at all about the medical procedure. For many, it’s just necessary for reasons that are really nobody’s business.
The new slogan, which can be purchased on T-shirts for $25, is the result of Gov. Polis, a fellow Democrat, telling CNN recently that “Democrats don’t believe that abortion is good. We believe it’s bad — it should be minimized.”
Valerie Richardson of The Washington Times reports on the fallout among Colorado’s Democrats to the governor’s comments, which ranges from the absurd to hilariously ridiculous.
Abortion is such a ✨GOOD WORD✨ we had to make you a shirt so you let people know that we’re loud and proud about access to abortion!

Choice excerpts include:
Democratic Rep. Brianna Titone, the state’s first transgender legislator, told Colorado Politics that Mr. Polis is “a man talking about abortion and has a hard time, as men do, talking about abortion,” adding that it “upsets a lot of people when he takes a soft stance to appeal to the other side.”
Jon Caldara over at Complete Colorado responded to the Times:
“Titone is right, we men do have a hard time talking about abortion, and Titone should know, because Titone, like Polis, has a penis,” Mr. Caldara said. “The bizarreness of this just doesn’t end.”
Abortion is neither health care, nor is it good. It’s a painful medical procedure to extract a child from a
man woman’s womb after she has been raped, is about to die, or has sadly confused abortion with birth control.
It is not a matter of good or bad, but of necessity or choice.
Is George Orwell’s “1984” even taught in school anymore? Or are teachers too occupied with their student’s sexuality and promoting books that include pornographic descriptions of various forms of sexual intercourse to bother?
Here is the key excerpt for those unfamiliar with “doublethink.”
“To know and not to know, to be conscious of complete truthfulness while telling carefully constructed lies, to hold simultaneously two opinions which cancelled out, knowing them to be contradictory and believing in both of them, to use logic against logic, to repudiate morality while laying claim to it, to believe that democracy was impossible and that the Party was the guardian of democracy, to forget whatever it was necessary to forget, then to draw it back into memory again at the moment when it was needed, and then promptly to forget it again, and above all, to apply the same process to the process itself—that was the ultimate subtlety: consciously to induce unconsciousness, and then, once again, to become unconscious of the act of hypnosis you had just performed. Even to understand the word—doublethink—involved the use of doublethink.”
