Cable news host Rachel Campos-Duffy says pro-life advocates are the truth-tellers and the real advocates of women’s rights.
The co-host of Fox & Friends Weekend, who is the mother of nine children, notes that the true feminists are those who defend the sanctity and dignity of all human life.
Campos-Duffy made her inspiring remarks before a sold-out crowd at the Celebrate Life Banquet in Harrisburg sponsored by the Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation, the Keystone State affiliate of National Right to Life.
The cable news host noted that pro-life pregnancy resource centers should be called “women empowerment centers” because they empower women with the information they need to make life-affirming decisions for themselves and their families.
Campos-Duffy pointed out that the Biden Administration is the most radically pro-abortion administration in U.S. history. Meanwhile, Campos-Duffy said that we have not even begun to see the impact of the pro-life judges who were appointed by Biden’s predecessor, pro-life President Donald Trump.
In a speech that earned a standing ovation, Campos-Duffy indicated that abortion proponents engage in a linguistic slight-of-hand that tries to conceal life-affirming truth.
“I refuse to play their evil word games and you should too,” Campos-Duffy said.
Campos-Duffy added that, for pro-lifers, hard work and tenacity are beginning to pay off. She noted that millions of little kids are seeing their siblings in utero, leading to a new generation of pro-lifers. “Our opponents are the science deniers,” Campos-Duffy said.
Campos-Duffy said that pro-life advocates are protectors of the poor, and of minority women and their children. Meanwhile, she decried the eugenic philosophy that has led to widespread abortions of children with special needs. The mother of a child with an extra chromosome, Campos-Duffy pointed out that the nation of Iceland “exterminated an entire class of people” through the abortion of babies with Down syndrome.
As far as the U.S. is concerned, Campos-Duffy said that “abortion has divided America” and that “America will never be united until the evil of abortion is resolved.”
Still, Campos-Duffy sees great reason for hope.
“…Let’s recommit today to our noble cause and to being happy warriors,” Campos-Duffy said. “…we fight to preserve liberty and life for ourselves, our daughters, and all of our children.”
