For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.
Far-left pundit Sally Kohn tried to prevent this immutable law of nature from applying earlier today after she gleefully announced her $2,000 “bowl-a-thon” for the New York Abortion Access Fund, tweeting:
YOU GUYS!!! I’m bowling for abortion access. Donate now. http://t.co/pmVvZBxHtl
— Sally Kohn (@sallykohn) March 24, 2015
She enlarged upon her “humanitarian effort” at the Daily Beast, where she explained:
I’m bowling because I believe that everyone should have access to the abortions they need, regardless of how much money they have. Because of unfair and unnecessary laws, safe and legal abortions can be out of reach of those who don’t have the money to pay for them. I don’t think that’s right, so I’m doing something about it. I’m bowling to break down barriers to abortion access. […] You can help me hit my goal, and together, we can make an immediate difference with real impact.
Needless to say, Kohn’s announcement touched off a torrent of negative reactions from people who find abortion (and some of whom find Kohn) abhorent. But rather than take the criticism in stride, Kohn tried to control the dialog by retweeting some of these criticisms with redoubled pleas to her base to donate:
The effect was a new round of even more blistering assaults:
@sallykohn You have haters cause you support murdering babies. How about raising money for adoption?

Oh honey, you think everyone who opposes you is a “hater”? You have some inner bigotry to work out, like all democrats @sallykohn

Is there a lesson to be learned in all of this? Sure. Will Sally Kohn have benefited from that lesson? Not as long as there are people who take issue with her extreme views.
