Evil never sees itself as evil.
The pro-abortion movement proves that every day, and as today is a day ending in Y, that rule applies. On Wednesday, pro-abortion spokeswoman Gloria Steinem appeared on PBS’ Tavis Smiley, where she discussed her own abortion. Steinem dedicated her new tome, My Life on The Road, to the doctor who performed her illegal killing of her child in the womb.
Bragging about her abortion, Steinem explained, “It gave me my life. I mean, I wouldn’t have been able to live my life otherwise.”
The question, of course, is not who controls a woman’s body. It’s who controls the definintion of a human life within a woman’s body. There is not a single pro-life person who gives one good damn about a woman’s gallbladder.
This statement, in and of itself, is the highest form of evil. Suggesting that you get to dehumanize someone for the sake of personal convenience represents the height of narcissistic brutality. But Steinem continued by defending taxpayer-funded abortion mill Planned Parenthood:
[The attack] is part of an ultra right-wing attempt to restore the basis of patriarchy or a male-dominant system and the necessity of a long-term racist system which is controlling reproduction. And to control reproduction, you have to control the bodies of women.
This odious feminist notion – the utterly false and malicious slur that pregnancy is some sort of male revenge fantasy on women – provides the justification for murder. It turns out that killing babies isn’t a blow against males. It’s a blow against the babies who have their brains sucked into sinks.
In truth, no one could be happier than misogynistic men about the presence of abortion. Married men – men who actually pledge to care for women long-term – pay a heavy price for their commitment by being forced to pay for the care of both wife and children. But men who prefer to cat around are in luck with the new abortion regime: they never have to worry about any consequences of their sexual profligacy. How convenient!
Steinem continued with this gobbledygook:
So the question is, who controls a woman’s body? Herself, which seems to me a requisite of it’s a basic human right. It’s a requisite of democracy. But without controlling reproduction, you lose control of nationalism, which has two pillars, which is territory and population. You lose the ability to decide how many workers, how many soldiers, what class, what race and so on.
The question, of course, is not who controls a woman’s body. It’s who controls the definintion of a human life within a woman’s body. There is not a single pro-life person who gives one good damn about a woman’s gallbladder. We do, however, care about the preservation of the human being in her uterus. Human life is not defined by democracy; stamping out human life is not a “basic human right.” And the fact that nature determines that women have babies is not a facet of male patriarchy, but of reality. Steinem is undoubtedly correct that slaughtering the next generation has impact on nationalism, but she blithely neglects to mention that the death of Western nationalism ends with the victory of barbaric cultures that routinely stamp on the actual human rights of women. Her hatred of the West is stronger than her love for women.
But at least her murder of her unborn child allowed her to live the life she wanted, encouraging other women to murder their unborn children. That’s freedom, don’t you know.
