Abortion activists have enjoyed quite a bit of media attention lately to voice their gripes about new abortion regulations in Texas and Ohio, the incoming Congress, Donald Trump’s administration and more.
The Blaze columnist Matt Walsh recently wrote about a common thread in many of the abortion activists’ comments – an ironic claim that their abortion work is life-saving.
One common theme amidst the leftist freak-out is that this law [in Ohio banning abortions after 20 weeks] is “dangerous” because it might force a woman in a high risk pregnancy to carry a child to term, killing her in the process.
This is the fabled “life of the mother” abortion excuse that we’re sure to hear ad nauseum anytime any state attempts to pass even the most meager regulations on the abortion industry. According to pro-abortion radicals, even the Texas law requiring humane treatment of dead babies might somehow result in the deaths of countless women. In Abortion World, abortion saves more lives than it takes. Pregnancy is more fatal than pancreatic cancer and the only thing preventing millions of women from dying from it is abortion. Pregnancy is a disease and abortion is the cure, they believe.
Here’s how one reader put it to me through email last night:
Matt, many women would be DEAD without abortion. Is that what you want? I thought you’re “pro-life”???? What if a woman needs to get an abortion to save her life. Are YOU going to tell her she has to DIE for the sake of a fetus? Is the GOVERNMENT going to tell her that? You’re not “pro-life”…. you’re pro-birth. You don’t give a sh*t about the women who will now die in Ohio because you think you should have a say over what they do with their bodies.
