The Tiny Group of Abortion-Loving Weirdo Protesters

Being pro-abortion in any and all circumstances has become a minority position. It’s become the position of crazy zealots like Sen. Elizabeth Warren.

Each year, the legacy media works industriously to avoid covering the thousands who attend the March for Life. If they can change the narrative by framing an earnest high school kid as a racist provoking an aged, wise Native American man, they’ll do it. Anything to ignore the wholesome, idealistic Americans marching to remember the aborted babies, the mothers who aborted them, and to bring awareness to saving these lives.

The pro-abortion folks, meanwhile, look more fringe, more damaged, and now, violent. More than anything, they look small. This is new and has to be alarming the abortion-loving, death-seeking feminists.

The Antifa, nee Black Lives Matter, and now pro-abortion crowd look like what they are: pink-haired, drug-addled, strung-out criminals for hire. Who wants to be them? Who wants to associate with them?

These troubled folks are organizing (at their masters’ behest) intimidation campaigns in front of Supreme Court justices’ homes when they’re not disrupting Catholic church services on Mother’s Day or burning down pregnancy centers that assist needy mothers. These actions — threatening violence against the highest judges in the land, violating the taboo of desecrating holy ground, depriving women and children of support — are offensive on a primal level. Even the most secular person sees these behaviors as crossing lines that should never be crossed. It’s just wrong.

Jen Psaki and the puppet President Biden did not do or say anything to condemn this antisocial behavior. Psaki tacitly encouraged it at her press conference Friday. Today, after seeing the universal revulsion to the direct action of the marauding psychopaths, she gave another bland comment.

Abortion up until birth is the far-left’s sacrament. Their ideology hangs on the dehumanization of babies and the triumphant selfism that asserts that only the ego matters and self-definition, including every depraved sexual act, supersedes any other consideration. Abortion, then, is necessary for the animal, the id, to express itself. What power does a mother have if she can’t eat her young?

Bill Clinton once said that abortion should be “safe, legal, and rare.” The statement was an obfuscating lie on its face, but it at least acknowledged that abortion shouldn’t be just another form of birth control. Women, middle-aged feminists especially, could tell themselves that abortion is just for those emergencies and not used wholesale to kill babies.

As time has gone on, the horrors of abortion have borne their fruit. The black community has committed genocide against itself. The data in places like New York City, where more black babies are aborted than born alive, reveal the scope of the demographic disaster. The same leftists who say demographics are destiny ignore the political power they’ve murdered.

Americans are waking up to the eugenics of white leftists like Margaret Sanger. Justice Samuel Alito’s majority opinion notes the disproportionate amount of black Americans who are aborted. Abortion and racism are inextricably intertwined.

Add to the picture literal pictures of pre-born babies in the womb and the plausible deniability of Hillary Clinton and her cohort is made plain. Young people have grown up seeing themselves in ultrasounds. They were alive babies. They moved and bounced and sucked their thumbs and looked at the cameras and the selfie generation remembers their beginnings.

No one, except for the most radical and insane, believes that abortion just destroys a clump of cells. It’s clear that a baby is being killed. Dave Chappelle expertly illustrates the reality in his 2019 Netflix comedy special. (WARNING: Foul language)

Dave Chappelle’s position is increasingly the prevailing opinion: an uneasy acknowledgment that abortion is murder and that it’s a choice and that women, if they have that choice, should live with the consequences.

Feminists on Twitter have posited that if abortion is made illegal, then men should pay for prenatal care and for the baby. To which conservatives have responded, “Exactly!” This is how it should be. Both people should be responsible for the life they created together. A woman should not carry this burden alone. The primary beneficiary of abortion, after all, is the man who made the baby but does not want to support the baby or the woman.

Most people now can see this dilemma. Two generations have passed since abortion was forced on America, wiping out the varying laws in the 50 states. Millions of babies have been killed. Millions of abortions, far from being rare, were made as lazy attempts at birth control.

In Texas, abortion Barbie, aka Wendy Davis, the Texas state representative who ran for governor on her pro-abortion platform, fell flat. Her radical views turned off women voters in the state. It became clear that the far-left position of abortion on demand and until birth was an unpopular position even with pro-choice voters.

Late-night host Bill Maher and other moderate liberals seem stunned by the truth about who supports abortion. “Did you know that the majority of pro-life advocates are women?” Again, the media obscures this fact.

The abortion-supporting voters, wearing their pink “pussy hats” and screaming obscenities in Washington, D.C., when Donald Trump was inaugurated, further illustrated how the pro-choice opinion was being taken over by unstable radicals. Their hysterical rhetoric, far from building support for their insanity, made their position seem extreme and strange.

Abortion activists now represent a minority view. Most Americans don’t want abortion on demand. They want restrictions on abortion. Most Americans don’t realize that abortion will still exist if Roe v. Wade is overturned. A majority, though, favor restricting abortion after 6 weeks.

Abortion maximalists get the attention, but they are few. The tiny, violent activist groups, the same weirdos who dress in all black at Antifa riots when they’re not wearing their all-red Handmaid’s Tale garb, don’t represent the majority. They represent a radical communist cult that is a fraction of the country. They’re increasingly hostile and aggressive as their power diminishes.

Marching through Catholic mass, stealing the tabernacle, screaming outside the homes of Supreme Court justices, fire-bombing clinics that help clothe and feed pregnant women, and all the rest of the shrill juvenile outbursts signify weakness. Their actions will continue to alienate their fellow Americans.

Abortion, and more importantly the abortion activists, represent a dying ideology. Screaming louder only makes their weakness more obvious.
