Denial: How the pro-choice side refuses to directly address abortion
“He can’t hear you. He never will.”
Juror #8, Twelve Angry Men
Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino has vetoed the “Reproductive Health Care Facilities Access Act”, which would have censored pro-life protesters outside abortion clinics. But perhaps the most revealing aspect of the failed legislation was its name: consider the terms, so fundamental to the pro-choice movement, “reproductive health” and “reproductive rights.”
Literally, your reproductive rights involve your right to create or not create offspring. The term, “reproductive rights” does not refer to destroying offspring. In America, about three hundred abortions a day are done in the second and third trimesters; children who could survive outside the womb are probably killed hundreds of times a week. Globally, thousands of viable children are likely killed a week. Late abortion at least is not reproductive rights, it’s not reproductive wrongs, it’s not reproduction period. It’s homicide.
