Many of our readers may recognize the name Whole Woman’s Health. It was the litigant in Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt, the 20l6 Supreme Court decision which struck down a Texas law requiring abortion providers to have admitting privileges at a hospital within 30 miles, and that they meet the same standards as ambulatory surgical centers. Whole Woman’s Health is big and growing bigger.
So imagine my total lack of surprise when Whole Woman’s Health tweeted the following:
“Nobody ‘likes’ abortion.” Wrong. We do. We’ve provided countless abortions to patients who went on to live their best lives. Abortion is safe and it gives people control of their futures. Abortion is good. We like abortion.
Ah, talk about hitting the sweet spot. One respondent said
I like availability to necessary healthcare.
I like abortion. I like appendectomies. I like all necessary healthcare.
And, a third avoided the fallback “healthcare” excuse. She chimed in
I love abortion.
I’d wager a pretty penny that Whole Woman’s Health studiously avoided saying they “love” abortion. It’s one thing to treat the deliberate destruction of a helpless baby as a “necessary evil.” The Abortion Industry left that judgmental mantra in the dust years ago.
It’s another thing to “like” abortion when you’ve persuaded yourself it’s no different than having an appendectomy. But it’s quite a leap to flat-out celebrate—“love”—a “procedure” that uses forceps with sharp metal jaws to grasp parts of the developing baby, which are then twisted and torn away.
What an abandonment of unborn children and their mothers.
