Amy Richards Is The Poster Child For The Democratic Party

By Sher Zieve
July 19, 2004

Amy Richards may be the new poster child for the Democrat party. How proud the democrats must be, today, knowing that Roe v. Wade has been taken to the next step in its inevitable (dare I say it?) “evolution”. Liberals love that word. For those who haven’t read the story, the following is a synopsis.

Amy Richards (Ms. Richards) lives with her boyfriend Peter. Ms. Peters said that she was “tired of being on the pill” and, after discussing it with Peter (how wonderfully responsible of her), came to the decision that, should she become pregnant, they would keep the child. Wait! They would actually keep the child? Although this doesn’t sound terribly liberal…just wait…there’s more. She and Peter joyfully became pregnant. But, it was only after Amy visited her obstetrician that her joy began to fade. Ms. Richards was going to have triplets.

Ms Richards said (in an interview with Amy Barrett): “My immediate response was I cannot have triplets. I was not married; I lived in a five-story walk-up in the East Village; I worked freelance; and I would have to go on bed rest in March. I lecture at colleges, and my biggest months are March and April. I would have to give up my main income for the rest of the year. There was a part of me that was sure I could work around that. But it was a matter of, do I want to? I looked at Peter and asked the doctor: ''Is it possible to get rid of one of them? Or two of them?'' The obstetrician wasn't an expert in selective reduction, but she knew that with a shot of potassium chloride you could eliminate one or more.”

So, with just a shot of potassium chloride, the heartbeats of two of the babies would be stopped forever. No problem for Ms. Richards and, when she found out that two of the babies were twins and one was “stand-alone”, she was relieved. That made her decision easier. She would just kill the twins! Besides, the “doctors” even have a term for it. It’s called “Selective Reduction”. As long as there’s a medical term, that makes it all right! Besides, after the “procedure” was completed, she didn’t feel sick anymore. That’s the most important thing. So, she knew everything was okay and, subsequently, did give birth to a baby boy. Ms. Richards, again, commented: “I had a boy, and everything is fine. But thinking about becoming pregnant again is terrifying. Am I going to have quintuplets? I would do the same thing if I had triplets again, but if I had twins, I would probably have twins. Then again, I don't know.” Poor thing. She “doesn’t know”. But. Then, that’s the liberal mindset…they really don’t know.

Yes. Amy Richards is, indeed, the poster child of the liberals and leftists. But, now that this story has gotten so much play, there will surely be others. Life no longer means much to them; particularly if its inconvenient or makes you feel sick. Having morning sickness isn’t even close to the “pursuit of happiness” is it? I wonder if Ms. Richards will be one of the speakers at the upcoming Democrat Convention. If so, John Kerry could proudly introduce her as one of his own.
