I know I’m probably preaching to the choir, but I just had to say this out loud.
There’s an article circulating in which pro-abortion activist Jessica DelBalzo loudly proclaims that she loves abortion. I can’t quite bring myself to link directly, but you can find it easily enough on google if you want to read the whole column.
A few excerpts are enough to convey her viewpoint:
“I love abortion. I don’t accept it. I don’t view it as a necessary evil. I embrace it. I donate to abortion funds. I write about how important it is to make sure that every woman has access to safe, legal abortion services. I have bumper stickers and buttons and t-shirts proclaiming my support for reproductive freedom. I love abortion,” DelBalzo declares.
To put an even finer point on it, she goes on to say:
Suggesting that abortion be “safe, legal, and rare,” and crowing that “no one likes abortion,” accomplishes nothing for women’s rights. Pandering to the anti-choice movement by implying that we all find termination distasteful only fuels the fire against it.
I just want to say that she is absolutely right on one point. The pro-choice camp is divided, and a large number of them don’t seem to know on which side of the fence they really belong.
If abortion takes a human life, it’s murder and we should all be appalled at every instance. It should be illegal under any circumstances.
If abortion takes a non-human life, it’s no more “a necessary evil” than sitting down to a chicken dinner.
