Parade of the Aborticrats

From Michelle Malkin:
Last fall, actress Martha Plimpton (of “Goonies” fame long, long ago) bragged publicly that her first and “best” abortion took place at a Seattle Planned Parenthood. Plimpton promotes a movement to #ShoutYourAbortion. Adoring fans cheered and laughed as she assured them it was “heads and tails above the rest” of her multiple abortions. “If I could Yelp review it,” she cracked, “I totally would.”
Goodbye, “Goonies.” Hello, ghoulies.

Nothing to date, though, can top the Independence Day holiday display of grotesqueries committed in the name of “choice.” On the day we should unite as a nation to celebrate life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, prominent Aborticrats and their Hollywood court jesters were throwing a parade — literally — over the mass slaughter of the unborn. Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer tweeted: “Today, I am celebrating the FREEDOM of women to make their own health care decisions, as established by the Supreme Court in Roe v. Wade.”

Schumer has lied about Planned Parenthood providing “mammograms, maternity care, cancer screenings & more.” As pro-life Live Action’s Lila Rose reported, “The reality is, Planned Parenthood does zero mammograms, performs less than two percent of women’s cancer screenings in the U.S., offers virtually no prenatal care, yet does over a third of the nation’s abortions — 887 abortions every day.” One of NARAL and Planned Parenthood’s most ardent champions, Schumer high-fived colleagues in January after spearheading efforts to kill a bill banning late-term abortions past 20 weeks. Three bloody cheers for butchery!

Riding the same wicked wavelength, “comedian” Michelle Wolf starred in a patriotic holiday special last week on Netflix to lead “The Break’s” 10th Annual Salute to Abortion. (Read more.)
From Live Action:
Wolf should stick to comedy instead of attempting to explain anything having to do with life or science. Here are four truths she missed.

1. Abortion doesn’t “stop a baby from happening.” It kills a living human being.

“Look, access to abortion is good and important,” she said. “Some people say abortion is ‘killing a baby.’ It’s not. It’s stopping a baby from happening. It’s like Back to the Future and abortion is the DeLorean.”

This, of course, is false; science has proven that a preborn child is not a “potential” human; the humanity of the preborn is not up for debate. From the moment of fertilization, the baby has his or her own unique DNA, separate from the mother. Research shows that within just 16 days, the baby’s heart begins beating. Just a few weeks later, brain waves can be measured. By the end of the first trimester, most of the baby’s major organs have formed. This isn’t almost a baby, or a potential person. The preborn child is a human being. This isn’t a matter of belief, but of scientific fact, and that abortion advocates continue to deny it shows how willing they are to turn their backs on science if it doesn’t fit their ideology.

2. Being “pro-life” means being in favor of allowing human beings in the womb to live.
Wolf also argued that pro-lifers are not truly pro-life, but instead are “anti-abortion.” While many pro-lifers would not dispute that term and frequently embrace it, Wolf argues that the difference between the two is that people who are truly pro-life would also be “fighting hard for health care, child care, education, gun control and protecting the environment.”

Abortion fans tend to twist the term “pro-life” into meaning whatever they want it to mean at any given time. ‘You aren’t pro-life unless you are for (fill in the blank)’ is commonly heard. But in no other movement do you have people suggesting that opposing the killing of other human beings isn’t enough. “You’re against domestic abuse? Then you’d better be willing to feed and house all the women who are being beaten by their partners!” 

Pro-lifers — like those who were in favor of abolishing slavery — shouldn’t have to solve all of possible ramifications of ending a human injustice before that injustice is treated as such.
Wolf also ignores the wide spectrum of views among pro-lifers; One-third of Democrats, for example — who often support universal healthcare or state-funded child care — are also pro-life. Supporting liberal policies does not preclude one from opposing abortion, yet Wolf seems to think this is a rarity among pro-lifers.

3. Women don’t create life on their own.

The segment also exposed Wolf’s misandrist views. To men, she said:
I’m sure this brings up a lot of feelings and thoughts and points you want to make, and I just want you to know that’s all very irrelevant. Abortion is a woman’s right. And I know acknowledging that is hard for some of you, because that would mean you’d also have to acknowledge that women are naturally equipped to do the most powerful thing in the world: give life. While you guys are naturally equipped to do what? Lift suitcases into the overhead compartment?
She added, “If women embrace the fact that they control life, that makes it a lot harder for men to control women. Of course men are uncomfortable with that. They won’t even let us control a little bit of Star Wars.”

Again, Wolf ignores science. Women give birth, which is a powerful and amazing thing. But they do not control life, or give life on their own. Fertilization requires a man’s participation. Women and men create life together, and it’s a sad statement on the strength of her views that she has to demean an entire class of people — men — in order to argue them.

4. The legality and availability of abortion hasn’t helped women.

In addition to trashing men as uniformly useless and misogynist, she argued that abortion should be common. “Abortion shouldn’t be a luxury,” she said. “It shouldn’t be the new, ‘I summer in Montauk.’ It should be on the dollar menu at McDonald’s!” She concluded by saying, “Women, don’t forget: you have the power to give life! And men will try to control that. Don’t let them! God bless abortions and God bless America!”

But the choice to advance abortion comes at the expense of women — something the founding feminists understood. They didn’t want women to have to choose between their children and their education, careers, or futures. They wanted more support, better resources, a family-friendly culture — barriers against coercing women into abortions. Legalizing abortion addressed none of these issues; it allowed them to flourish. Women still have difficulties attending school or building careers while pregnant or parenting, in part because the cultural mindset is that there’s no need to give women better support, because abortion is available.

One can rationalize anything particularly by using carefully selected wording. Surprising how they have actually used the word 'abortion', a term that had evolved to 'women's health care issues'.
