When conservatives point out that liberals believe in killing children for convenience sake, what do liberals usually say? Typically, it’s some variation of, “Why, nobody wants more abortions. We just believe that abortions should be safe, legal, and rare!” Of course, then they follow that up by trying to make sure that as many children are aborted as humanly possible.
For example, take a look at this anti-abortion ad from Abortion Changes You:
This is not exactly a hardcore ad. There’s no tiny little hand sticking out of a dumpster at the back of Planned Parenthood. There’s no call to overturn Roe v. Wade. It just essentially says, “Hey, this is a big decision and if you have an abortion, you may genuinely regret it.” Is that even a controversial sentiment? You’d think that even thoughtful advocates of abortion, you know, the sort who claim to want abortion to be “safe, legal, and rare,” wouldn’t have a problem with this ad.
Of course, back in the real world, pro-abortion advocates hate this ad campaign with the burning heat of a thousand suns. Why? Well, it shatters the illusion that an abortion is just another medical procedure, like having a wart removed, and therefore, it might convince a woman NOT to have an abortion.
That brings us to Feministing and their reaction (“Love. It.”) to a “pro-choice hero” who saw this ad and “wasn’t having it”.
In other words, having a baby might be inconvenient, so kill it. I rest my case.
