The chant that infuriates me most

Zombietime video of the counter-protesters at the West Coast Walk for Life

They're chanting the chant that most makes me want to scream:
"March for Life? That's a lie!
You don't care if women die!"

This coming from the people who are so staggering, appallingly, callously, consistently, and relentlessly indifferent to the deaths of these women:

Where were these chanters when Sharon Hamplton was bleeding to death from a treatable injury in the back seat of her mother's car, her arms around her three-year-old son? They weren't warning women like Sharon that her doctor was a known quack, that's for sure. Where were they when the butcher who killed her was being prosecuted? They were raising funds for his legal defense. They not only didn't care that Sharon died, they were outraged that the man who killed her was being held accountable. Then they dare to hide behind the fascade of concern for women's lives. With friends like these, who needs enemies?

Do they know about Sharon? Well, duh. They started a defense fund for her killer. Of course they know about Sharon. And where does their sympathy lie? With the man who killed her. Then they have the unmitigated gall to pretend that it's the people who wanted Sharon's killer prosecuted who don't care.
