Feminists are many things, but "self-aware" is not one of them.
Exhibit A: Feminists are now gushing over on-demand abortion with the imagery of “children laughing.” Yup, seriously.
Over the weekend, pro-abortion feminists gathered together at concerts across the country to be useful pawns for the lucrative abortion industry: They sang, danced and bragged about killing their unborn babies in the womb in order to “destigmatize” the fatal act of abortion, in hope that more women can partake in the barbaric feminist ritual and Planned Parenthood et al. can continue to profit.
Unable to contain their excitement over their killer time (pun intended) at the concerts, feminists exploded about the “joy”-filled events all over their blogs on Monday morning. Most notably, one blog post called the Atlanta-based concert "uplifting" and even evoked the image of "children laughing" at the event.
"All Access: Atlanta was a night of fun, music, and dance in support of better access to abortion at the Eyedrum Art and Music Gallery," gushed one feminist, on left-wing blog Feministing.
"Overall, the All Access concerts were centered around abortion access and joy, which in my opinion is a very radical way to normalize a common medical procedure and fight stigma," she continued. "Last night, I saw people having a great time while wearing 'This is What an Abortion Access Supporter Looks Like,' children laughing with their All Above All glow-in-the dark bracelets on, and people standing up for abortion access while getting glitter confetti sprayed at them. As an abortion access supporter, it was so uplifting and transforming to be in a radical space of celebrating abortion access."
"I saw people having a great time...children laughing with their All Above All glow-in-the dark bracelets on, and people standing up for abortion access while getting glitter confetti sprayed at them."
So, uh, does anyone want to explain to these harpies what abortion actually is? Hint: It's not "uplifting," nor does it result in “children laughing.”
How about we have a former abortionist do it: Dr. Anthony Levatino, who has performed over 1,200 abortions and is now pro-life, released a series of animated videos in February detailing exactly what gruesome abortion procedures entail.
Here's the video of the common "D&E" aboriton procedure:
As AbortionProcedures.com explains, as does the video above, after the amniotic fluid is removed from the patient, “the abortionist uses a sopher clamp—a grasping instrument with rows of sharp 'teeth'—to grasp and pull the baby’s arms and legs, tearing the limbs from the child’s body. The abortionist continues to grasp intestines, spine, heart, lungs, and any other limbs or body parts. The most difficult part of the procedure is usually finding, grasping and crushing the baby’s head. After removing pieces of the child’s skull, the abortionist uses a curette to scrape the uterus and remove the placenta and any remaining parts of the baby.”
Disturbingly, the abortionists then reassemble the baby limb by limb to make sure that “all the pieces” of the baby have been removed.
For some reason, "children laughing" seems highly disconnected from the reality of abortion.
