In a viral video with over 2.5 million views, Democratic State Representative from Pennsylvania Brian Sims attempted to dox three teenage girls praying outside of a Philadelphia Planned Parenthood. Sims offered $100 to anyone who could give the name and address of the three teenage girls, presumably so pro-abortion advocates can continue to shame and harass them in their homes. In another video with 1 million views, he publicly shamed and harassed an elderly woman. Abortion, seemingly more than any other issue today, breeds a certain level of insanity for the left. Recent events alone show that no other issue will make its advocates forget science, morality, and simple logic like the ability to kill a baby.
The laws passed by New York State, the comments made by Virginia Governor Ralph Northam, and the failure for Senate Democrats to vote for a Born-Alive Bill are all well-documented examples of just how extreme mainstream Democrats have become on abortion. Where there used to be some discussion of late-term limitations, now there is full-throated demand that at any point, for any reason, a baby can be killed. The Venn Diagram between extremist rhetoric and state law is finding more and more in common. However, the pro-abortion train doesn’t stop moving, and the rhetoric is ramping up.
Democratic State Representative from Alabama John Rogers justified abortions in the most horrifying ways. “Some kids are unwanted,” he said on the floor of the Alabama House of Representatives, “so you kill them now or you kill them later. You bring them in the world unwanted, unloved, you send them to the electric chair. So, you kill them now or you kill them later.” He also said “Some parents can’t handle a child with problems. It could be retarded. It might have no arms and no legs.” Rogers does not only advocate eugenics, but justifies the murders based on potential happiness level of parents. The life of the child is completely irrelevant to his thinking. Life has no meaning, so long as someone else “can’t handle” it. There are those who justified Caylee Anthony’s alleged murder by her mother (who was found not-guilty in a controversial decision in 2011) by saying that she should have never been born in the first place. Democrats find it perfectly acceptable to murder a child, the only relevant factor is convenient timing. United States Democratic Senator from Alabama Doug Jones told Rogers on a phone call that he agreed with Rogers, but he had to publicly come out against him during his re-election campaign.
CNN Contributor and former New York City Council Speaker Christine Quinn appeared on Chris Cuomo this week. In a video with over 540k views, she said “When a woman is pregnant, that is not a human being inside of her.” That statement is so wildly incorrect, even abortion providers disagree with her. Ann Furedi, who is the chief executive for BPAS, the largest abortion provider in the United Kingdom, said in 2008, “We can accept that the embryo is a living thing in the fact that it has a beating heart, that it has its own genetic system within it. It’s clearly human in the sense that it’s not a gerbil, and we can recognize that it is human life.” Regardless of whether you think that the life has less value, and thus allowances are made for it to be killed, the notion that it’s not even a human being is morally repugnant. Quinn, however, has once-again lowered the bar, and now that will be the new talking point for the abortion-loving left.
Chris Cuomo, “objective” journalist, completely dismissed the pro-life position when responding to criticism that his segment was too political, and not expert-driven. After being called disingenuous on Twitter, Cuomo replied “Disingenuous? No. There is certainly a need to explain the medical realities of the procedures and the risks to women of losing access to care but this is about politics mostly – and the pro- life position is more about faith and feeling than fact. But I pursue both avenues.” Cuomo is either too stupid to know about the pro-life position, or is lying. Ben Shapiro, whose motto is “facts don’t care about your feelings” did a live podcast for an hour at the 2019 March for Life. This podcast was completely dedicated to pro-life arguments, not one of which was faith or feeling based. While many pro-life advocates are religious, the notion that the onlycase against abortion is one of faith shuts down debate and conversation about this topic, as the left increasingly despises faith.
Activists take the disgusting behavior even further. The college based pro-life group “Students for Life” set up a Cemetery of the Innocents display. A group of girls carrying “I Stand With Planned Parenthood” signs walked in the middle of the display, disturbing the crowd by shouting, “I had an abortion”, “look there’s mine right there”
(pointing at the grave), “I’m super proud of [my abortion]”, “Stop, hey, hey, what’s that sound? All the fetuses are in the ground”. Students for life claims that there have been over 50 incidents of vandalism to their demonstrations and displays in the last year.
All of these incidents put to context why Brian Sims felt comfortable harassing the elderly woman and teenage girls. Sims referred to them as “old white lady”, “pseudo-Christian protesters”, and “a bunch of white people”. Sims knows that the mainstream left supports him in these attacks. Christians and whites are the enemy. When Sims issued a video response to the criticism he received, he does not apologize. Rather he justifies his ridiculous actions, but with a more somber tone. He doesn’t need to apologize, because his views are in line with the broader Democratic Party.
The Democratic Party has nearly zero pro-life members in it. The Women’s March kicked out a pro-life women’s group. 2020 Democratic Presidential candidates attempt to reclassify abortion as a “right” and “women’s healthcare”. This is because their electoral strategy is divide and conquer. They must group together all women into a voting bloc, like they did with the black and Hispanic communities. The best way to do that is to turn women into victims. When a group of women protest abortion, Brian Sims classifies them as “white” so other Democrats don’t think about the views of women who disagree with the abortion position. Calling them white is the equivalent of Sims saying “these women are still evil and can be cast aside, their views dismissed”. Ironically, the argument that many have with Georgia’s new fetal heartbeat law is that it was written by men, and men cannot have opinions about abortion (according to thought leaders like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and many others.) Brian Sims, man, can slander and harass a group of women, because he is on the right side of the issue.
Abortionists saw the fury that conservatives had when rights were attacked, rights like freedom of speech and the right to bear arms. To co-opt that fury, they classified abortion as a right. As any conservative worth their salt will tell you, the freedoms we enjoy are self-evident. The only thing government can do is take it away from you. Government must also protect its citizenry from each other. You’re right to swing your hands around stops when your fist hits someone’s face. You’re right to defend yourself with a gun stops when you shoot someone unprovoked. Conservatives are willing to debate the idea that the Supreme Courts “right to privacy” extends to the taking of another life, and if the government should interfere in that action as they do in all other interpersonal acts of violence. The left is afraid to debate that, as it would shed too much light on the subject.
To avoid the debate, they obfuscate and lie about the necessity of abortion to shut down discussion. They claim that the normal abortion is for the life of the mother, or cases of incest and rape. The statistics don’t bear this out. They claim that the baby doesn’t feel pain, but the science isn’t with them. They claim its pro-women, but 47% of women claim to be pro-life (according to Gallup). They claim that Planned Parenthood is a necessary provider of all women’s healthcare, not just abortions, but Planned Parenthood doesn’t provide mammograms or prenatal care (other than abortions).
The Democrats need to keep the anger up so women keep voting for them. They must ignore morality, judgement, science and common sense. If they are forced to confront those, they will lose another aspect of their electoral strategy.
