It's because they lie. All the time.

Via JJ, we learn that, just when you think the fetus fetishists can't possibly sink any lower, well, they sink lower:

Lookie lookie, there's a new "anti-choice pretending to be pro-choice" website in town, and it's one of the most pathetic entries in the category to date. It's called *ta-da!* "", slyly co-opting the pro-choice name in order to lure the unsuspecting in search of a pro-choice site, then inundate them with a lot of anti-abortion bullshit.

Let us first take a few minutes to allow the fetishists their moment of infantile chuckling and hooting: "Oh, man, that's priceless! That's brilliant. You pro-aborts have been, like, totally PWNED!!" Etc, etc and childishly etc.

And now that that's out of their system, we can at least all -- every one of us -- agree that these people are hideously dishonest. Yes, we can. Because even if you think this development is insanely funny, you still have to acknowledge that it is, at its core, a lie.

Regardless of what side of the aisle you're on, it's been well established by now that, for better or worse, phrases like "pro-life" and "pro-choice" have a generally understood meaning. So for a virulently anti-choice group to register and use the URL "" is nothing less than deception. And if they're going to lie to you on that level, it's a safe assumption that they will continue lying to you about everything else, such as on this page where they try to warn you about the (discredited and non-existent) link between abortion and breast cancer.

Yes, I'm sure the fetishists think this is just devilishly clever, and perhaps it is. But it's also dishonest and, more than anything else, it tells you everything you need to know about these people: They lie. Relentlessly, perpetually, pathologically. Always have, always will.

And that's the truth.

Well, when you're one of the goods guys anything you do to advance the cause is, by definition, good.

So I doubt these people will feel the slightest twinge of conscience.

So this is exactly like the Liberals' "" that clearly states right on the main page something to the effect of "we are not and have no connection to them, but here's the link to their site if you came here by mistake"?
