Despite the social left’s repeated claims that “it’s unfair to call us pro-abortion; we aren’t in favor of the act of abortion, per se, but we support the idea that woman should have that choice, under any and all circumstances.”
A couple of items that tend to run contrary to that narrative. First, Alpha Feminist Amada Marcotte expresses her complete and utter contempt for babies and the women who choose to have them.
“I don’t particularly like babies. They are loud and smelly and, above all other things, demanding. No matter how much free day care you throw at women, babies are still time-sucking monsters with their constant neediness.”
On the topic of adoption, Marcotte sums up her feelings simply: “Adoption? Fuck you, seriously.” That’s a heck of an argument.
On the Progressive Left, motherhood and family are disdained; promiscuity, pr0n, and abortion are the emblems of female empowerment.
Second, a pro-abortion group in Washington DC is giving away coat-hanger pendants, so that people who donate $10 or more to… in the words of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, help keep down populations of people we don’t want too many of (i.e. minorities)… can show how proudly they support baby extermination procedures.
These just don’t seem consistent with the narrative of abortion being a tragic, deeply personal choice.
