One of abortion defenders’ favorite justifications for allowing abortion-on-demand is the supposed right of pregnant women and girls to decide whether their abortions would be the right decision.
But what happens when that same judgment leads someone to choose life?
Suddenly, the abortion crowd doesn’t think her insight is so sacred.
Recently, a very young teenager(*), known only as Belén to protect her privacy, captured the pro-abortion community’s attention, inspiring all sorts of sweeping proclamations about how aborting the baby she was carrying would be “the best option” for Belén’s well-being.
Everyone agreed — except Belén herself. Declaring her intention to “love the baby very much,” she wants to keep her child and give him or her a chance at life.
That was enough for the ironically named pro-“choice” crowd to throw choice out the window. They were certain that Belén didn’t know what she was doing.
“At that age the girl doesn’t have a capacity of discernment,” one observer said.
Another declared, “it’s not possible for any person at that age to have the capacity to understand the consequences on an act of that nature.”
One even sneered that she had to give birth “because of Jesus.”
So let’s review according to abortion supporters: if you want an abortion, you are wise and strong. If you don’t, you’re incompetent and immature.
Pro-aborts are pulling a massive shell game on the national discussion. Their every standard is just an excuse to rationalize abortion, free to be thrown away and totally contradicted whenever it’s convenient for them.
And these are the people who want to decide how billions of your tax dollars are spent.
When they get their hands on public funds, you can bet they’ll use any trick they can to ensure as much of it goes to abortion as possible.
That’s why it’s so important for you and me to cut them off so they can’t use our money to push their sick single-minded agenda.
