Democrats say the craziest things, including that “abortion may have saved democracy”

By Dave Andrusko

Pro-abortion Democrats–which make up all but a handful of the members of party–just say the craziest things. NRLC has no position of immigration, but Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer’s recently comments are so zany you need to talk about their obvious connection to abortion which Schumer (of course) didn’t.

The following tweet captures the gist of his argument:

SCHUMER: Now more than ever — we’re short of workers. We have a population that is not reproducing on its own with the same level that it used to. The only way we’re going to have a great future is if we welcome and embrace immigrants…get a path to citizenship for all 11 million or however many of the undocumented there are here.

Never mind “the shrieking hypocrisy of lamenting fertility rates while pushing for unrestricted abortions,” as Ed Morrissey said.  This advice came out of the mouth of a politician who has no regrets over the extinction of over 63 million unborn babies. No wonder “We’re short workers” and “have a population that is not reproducing on its own with the same level that it used to.”

And then there is Planned Parenthood President and CEO Alexis McGill Johnson who said during a forum hosted by U.S. News on financial and health equity in the U.S. “abortion may have saved democracy.” Pardon?

 Johnson, head of the country’s most prominent abortion rights advocacy organization, said she felt the results showed an understanding within a “rising electorate” of how abortion rights is connected to economic concerns…”

What’s that got to do with “saving democracy”?

“What we saw last Tuesday is voters who really hadn’t had a chance to express their outrage with the Supreme Court decision in Dobbs in June.”

Apparently Johnson doesn’t read NRL News Today (just kidding). If she did, Johnson might acknowledge the incredible amount of money pro-abortionists showered the electorate with. And they had the vast majority of the press corps in their corner. That provides them with “a power that most people do not recognize,” according to Jacki Ragan. “The power to repeat a lie, over and over, and over again, until people begin to believe what they know at some level in their soul is wrong.”

Johnson continued, “From an economy perspective, we also know that abortion bans and restrictions cost the U.S. economy $105 billion a year, a significant toll when, again, you don’t have the opportunity to make these choices about your own lives.”

Two things. First, what about unborn children? Doesn’t abortion eliminate the “opportunity to make these choices about your own lives”?

Second, the real cost to the economy is what the aborted children would have contributed. “Research indicates abortion has hurt the American economy,” says Micaiah Bilger. “In the past 50 years, more than 63 million unborn babies were aborted under Roe v. Wade. A report earlier this year by the U.S. Congressional Joint Economic Committee Republicans found that abortions actually cause a catastrophic economic loss, including approximately $6.9 trillion in 2019 alone.”

No, abortion didn’t “save democracy,” but it may have hurt the economy and for sure destroyed over 63 million babies.
