Michelle Wolff doubled down on her bizarre abortion celebration, which aired Sunday night on Netflix, by “unloading” on anti-abortion activists, according to the Daily Beast, though it appears the admittedly “pro-science” leftist has a blind spot when it comes to embryology.
In her monologue, post-“Salute to Abortion,” in which Wolff made the stunning argument for the pro-life movement that the “pro-choice” left is populated with ghoulish figures who delight in not just abortion as an option, but abortion as a high holy sacrament, Wolff waxed poetic about the scientific origin of human life.
“Look, access to abortion is good and important,” she mused. “Some people say abortion is ‘killing a baby.’ It’s not. It’s stopping a baby from happening. It’s like ‘Back to the Future’ and abortion is the DeLorean.”
Even the most dedicated abortion supporter, hard-pressed as they are to admit that a human comes into being at the moment of conception, wouldn’t argue that abortion essentially prevents a baby. Even Plan B, the eponymous “morning after” pill doesn’t actually prevent conception — it triggers a woman’s system into believing she’s at the end of her cycle, and prompts menstruation. By the time a woman finds out she’s with child and makes her appointment at Planned Parenthood, she’s aware she’s not simply turning the clock back on the contents of her uterus.
Michelle Wolff’s rhetoric isn’t really much of an “own,” not just because she, like Bill Nye the “not-so-science” guy and others attempt to explain abortion through the lens of obvious pseudo-science, but because abortion isn’t simply a medical procedure that affects “unwanted” babies; it’s a procedure that deeply affects women.
Coming to terms with the loss of a child isn’t easy — whether that child is lost naturally or through surgical abortion — and it’s downright bizarre, and even cruel, to suggest a woman can simply walk away from a pregnancy. Even abortion proponents have been loathe to suggest women enter into the decision to terminate their child lightly. But not Michelle Wolff, apparently.
