On Monday, the gods of the Supreme Court descended from their throne room in the clouds to once again intervene in the affairs of the common people. Perhaps you heard about it. After chatting amongst themselves for a while, they proceeded to hurl thunderbolts at their enemies and summarily struck down a law passed by the elected representatives of Texas — a law which simply requires abortion clinics to be subject to the same medical regulations as hospitals and surgery centers.
Then, after declaring the Fourteenth Amendment to be utterly meaningless, they quickly exited the building and rode off into the sunset on chariots of fire. Perhaps we’ll see them again the next time we need another sweeping violation of human rights or a misinterpretation of the Constitution. After all, I doubt the original authors ever intended for “the right of a woman to have an abortion at an unregulated clinic” to show up anywhere in that particular amendment — much less anywhere in the Constitution itself.
But, thanks to the whims of a few people in black robes, women not only have a right to murder their children, but must now be allowed to do so in the most convenient way possible. In other words, no woman should be forced to drive an hour to obtain an abortion at a clinic that meets medical safety standards when she can just walk down the street to the clinic on the corner where the walls are stained with blood and the surgical equipment hasn’t been sanitized for weeks. Convenient, indeed. I imagine it won’t be long before you can order abortions and pizzas in the same building.
Yes, I’d like a large thick-crust supreme to-go, hold the olives.
That’ll be $12 and about 20 minutes, ma’am. Would you like to terminate your pregnancy while you wait?
In the wake of the SCOTUS ruling, pro-abort progressives and feminists took to social media to celebrate what they see as yet another victory for womankind, not unlike last year’s #ShoutYourAbortion movement. Liberal columnist, commentator and gay rights activist Sally Kohn tweeted about how “thrilled” she was that low-income women can continue to execute their children just as easily and conveniently as rich women. You know, because when it comes to killing the unborn, equality is what really matters, folks:
And not only is it about equality, it’s about what’s best for women, or so we’re told. This ruling is supposed to be proof that the left cares deeply about women and that anyone who opposes abortion-on-demand is a misogynistic hate-monger. Ironically, the Texas law was designed to specifically keep women safe from the sort of things that happen at unregulated abortion clinics — like the blood-soaked butcher shop run by Kermit Gosnell, who killed born-alive infants and tossed their corpses into the toilet. Gosnell never bothered to sanitize his equipment before slicing open his patients, oftentimes giving them infections and venereal diseases in the process. Even the most progressive liberals were horrified upon seeing his clinic, but argued that it wasn’t representative of the abortion industry overall and was merely an isolated case. But, this simply isn’t true. There are many more Gosnells and they all exemplify what happens when abortionists are free to rule themselves.
Of course, a medically-regulated abortion clinic is still an abortion clinic. It might be safer and cleaner for half the people who stroll the doors, but the other half — the babies — still wind up dead either way. The reason the left callously rejects these proposed regulations is because they’re more concerned with the widespread accessibility of abortions than they are with the health of the women having the abortions. At least we pro-lifers are honest in admitting our bias position. We’d love nothing more than to see these regulations bring about the closure of every abortion clinic in the nation. But, the progressives have to hide behind this faux narrative of “concern for women” in order to push the real purpose of their demonic agenda: a convenient infanticidal extermination of over one million babies a year. They have to claim to care about “a woman’s right to control her own body” while they reap the financial profits of an industry that makes millions of dollars slaughtering innocent, defenseless human beings — even if it means putting the women at risk of physical danger in the process.
Leftists often accuse us of oppressing women, but the ironic truth is that everything about abortion actually undermines everything that is beautiful and sacred about womanhood. The progressive mantra has always been that abortions “empower” women by allowing them to take control of their bodies, but the sickening reality is that it’s precisely the opposite. Abortions demean women, practically reducing them to second class citizens by negating the wondrous truths of their unique sexuality. Only one half of the human race is capable of growing another life inside of their own bodies — a marvelous feat that the other half will never accomplish. And yet, rather than celebrate this ability, leftists seek to downplay its importance and promote the one thing that strips women of their life-bearing power altogether.
Moreover, increased convenient access to abortions only further encourages corrupt and degenerate men to continue to exploit women. Sexual intercourse becomes nothing more than a recreational activity for people who want to float in and out of relationships without consequences like pregnancy, rather than a sacred act between a married man and woman with the potential to create life.
See, I know that liberals will never recant their pro-abortion positions, but I at least want them to be honest about those positions. I want people like Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Cecile Richards and others to finally admit that the safety and physical wellbeing of women are of absolutely no concern to them. I want them to approach the argument without hiding behind all of the phony emotional rhetoric. And I want them to confess once and for all that they care more about the ideology of abortion than they do about the women who are being cut open by the soulless baby-butchers wielding unsanitary, blood-soaked equipment.
No other industry on the planet exists for the singular purpose of killing people. And if leftists refuse to impose even the most sensible of regulations on such an industry, I believe that says more about their indifference and disdain for women and children than it does about their aversion toward regulations.
If liberals want to continue to market the dark death cult of abortion, then they should at least do it honestly.
We might not be able to exterminate the cult entirely, but at least we can expose it to the light of the truth just a little more.
