Motherhood Statement

From Conservapedia
Jump to: navigation, search

A motherhood statement is one that that no one would disagree with, or about something that all listeners would agree was good, positive or worthwhile, so as to associate the statement with a concept or action that is potentially disagreeable or controversial, for example advocating further government regulation by associating the regulation with 'protecting the environment'. The person using the 'motherhood statement' hopes that his listeners will agree with whatever he proposes because it is presented in association with a goal that most are sympathetic with, although the policy being advocated in this way may have little to do with the stated goal.
