Planned Parenthood’s CEO Had An Abortion. Her Reason Was Ridiculous.

The “pro-choice” movement, which long ago had a mantra of “safe, legal and rare,” has morphed into a sycophantic abortion-on-demand machine. From pro-abortion mouthpiece Lena Dunham publicly lamenting never having had an abortion to the grotesque #ShoutYourAbortion movement, America has seen the sickening glorification of abortion as a stigma-free badge of honor: The more abortion the better; safety regulations are an unnecessary “burden;” any reason you choose to kill the unborn is admirable.

This current pro-abortion position is perfectly reflected in the chief of American’s largest abortion mill: Planned Parenthood’s CEO Cecile Richards.

Richards has boasted of having an abortion multiple times, starting in 2015 during an interview with “objective journalist” and Planned Parenthood donator Katie Couric.

“It was a decision my husband and I made,” Richards told Couric. “It was a personal decision. And we have three children that we adore and that are the center of my life. And we decided that was as big as our family needed to be. It wasn’t anything more dramatic than that.”

There you have it: an affluent millionaire with a husband and three children already simply didn’t feel like having another baby. In other words, an innocent baby was likely poisoned, had their skull crushed in, torn limb-from-limb and sucked out of their mother’s womb because Richards’ family was “as big as our family needed to be.”

As noted by conservative author, pundit and fierce pro-life advocate Ben Shapiro, the murder of the unborn, specifically for this despicable reasoning of “convenience,” is on-par with the dehumanization seen in days of slavery and the Holocaust.

“The idea that you get to murder a kid… no one has a ‘right to choose’ this,” said Shapiro during an October podcast, pointing to the picture of the fully-formed murdered baby. “No one. No one. No one has a ‘right’ to choose this. That’s a baby. You don’t get to kill it just because it’s convenient to you. You don’t have a right to say, ‘It’s my decision to decide where and when and how to have the baby.’ That’s an individual human being, and if that baby were outside the womb and you stuck a knife through its chest, you’d be charged with first-degree murder. You kill it in the womb, and we call it a ‘human right.’ That’s not a ‘human right,’ because that’s a human and that human doesn’t have any rights because you just decided its rights are less important than your right to your own convenience.”

“We have three children that we adore and that are the center of my life. And we decided that was as big as our family needed to be.”

But as demonstrated by Richards and company, this is exactly what the abortion industry is currently advocating for: the murder of innocent life on demand, for any reason, and without apology.
