Contrary to what the liberal news media would lead the public to believe, more Americans support Texas’s recently passed Heartbeat Bill than oppose it. A new poll by Rasmussen Reports shows that 46% of likely U.S. voters support the anti-abortion bill, while 43% remain opposed. Albeit a small margin, the majority of Americans are NOT pro-choice, proving that the loudest voices are not always representative of the whole of society.
In the midst of the noise currently surrounding the abortion debate, there exists a great deal of hypocrisy among those who identify as pro-choice. The first hypocrisy lies in the very term they use to define their position: the “choice” they advocate for applies to only one party involved. There is no choice conceded to the baby in the womb. Those who adhere to a “pro-choice” argument discriminate entirely against pre-born human beings. More accurately, a “pro-choice” advocate is not pro-choice at all. He/she is pro-abortion.
Those on the left apply the concept of choice only in certain circumstances. Choice apparently applies to mothers who wish to end the life of their unborn baby, masquerading under the umbrella of healthcare and women’s rights. Yet, those who wish to decline vaccinations or wear masks are not making choices for their own health but putting the lives of others at undue risk. Choosing abortion ALWAYS ends the life of another human being. Masking and/or vaccinating does not offer a guarantee against transmission. Abortion guarantees harm to another human being EVERY time. Suggesting that bodily autonomy extends to the choice to deliberately end the life of another human being, yet not to those who decide not to vaccinate or mask simply does not make sense.
The hypocrisy extends to the nation’s highest office, where President Biden took the opportunity to strongly condemn Texas’s new law and the Supreme Court’s ruling that upheld it. When a male reporter pressed White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki on Biden’s stance on the Supreme Court’s ruling in contradiction to his Catholic faith, she fell back on the line of a woman’s right to choose: “I know you’ve never faced those choices, nor have you ever been pregnant, but for women out there who face those choices, this is an incredibly difficult thing. The president believes that right should be respected.” The progressive left would have you believe that men don’t have a right to speak out against abortion since they don’t have a uterus. Conveniently overlooked is the fact that it was an all-male Supreme Court that legalized abortion. Biological gender apparently matters in the pro-choice debate, but not elsewhere… you can identify as whatever you like in today’s America, but not when it comes to arguing against abortion.
Those of a more “progressive” persuasion suggest that opponents of abortion seek to suppress the rights of women. The crux of the matter is, it’s not a debate that concerns women’s rights. Texas’s new law serves to protect those without a voice, not at the expense of women, but for the sake of humanity. We live in a country that values the life of pre-born sea turtles, yet advocates for the right to murder pre-born babies. Where is the humanity in that?
