The Guardian put out this piece after the landmark decision in Alabama to ban abortion outright (other than serious threats to the woman’s health). As if they are fighting for some grave injustice here.
Alabama’s new law mandating an almost blanket ban on abortion, the strictest in the United States, was passed by this group of exclusively white, male politicians.
Of the 27 Republicans, all white men, that dominate the 35-seat Alabama senate, 25 voted to pass the bill late on Tuesday.
This is what the Republican leadership group in the senate looks like, as presented on their caucus’s website:
<insert picture of heroic white men saving babies here>
There are only four women in the Alabama senate, who are among the eight-strong Democratic party minority in the upper chamber of the state legislature.
Two Republicans did not vote.
The legislation makes abortion a crime at any stage of pregnancy, with the only exception for a serious threat to the health of the woman.
This is how far we’ve come, where this rag of a news outlet can publish this article as if they are the heroes here by outing the white men who voted to ban abortion in Alabama. As if you needed a diverse constituent of people to agree that killing babies is a bad thing. Somehow I don’t think these feral leftists would have blamed Hillary Clinton, had she been elected president, to make a decision to start World War III with Russia given that all those men, fighting because of her decision, would die because of the decision of a woman. But what do I know.
We need to stop cowering anytime the abortion question comes up in conversation. We are not in the wrong for being pro-life. They’re fighting to have the right to kill unborn children. As someone reminded me recently, we are fighting against people who want to kill unborn children, who never had any say in life, but they will fight to abolish the death penalty for people who made conscious decisions to destroy other people’s lives. Welcome to clown world. Honk honk. The next time you hear the “her body, her choice” argument calmly remind them that they made a choice to give their body away to somebody. They made their choice. Now they should act like adults and deal with the consequences. I know, I know. You may not be able to party all night and get blackout drunk once you have a kid. What a Greek tragedy.
