Amid all the pro-abortion hatred one finds from Hollywood on Twitter, sitcom star Patricia Heaton is a welcome breath of fresh air. The former co-star of Everybody Loves Raymond and current star of Carol’s Second Act on CBS is a long-time pro-life activist and she blasted Democrats for their “barbaric” pro-abortion platform on Wednesday.
Heaton tweeted, “I don’t understand why pro-life people want to know if they are ‘welcome’ to join the democrat party. Why would any civilized person want to support a barbaric platform that champions abortion for any reason through all nine months funded by taxpayers?”
An excellent question, indeed!
Her tweet comes in the wake of both Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and former Democrat mayor Pete Buttigieg being asked recently if there is a place in the Democrat Party for pro-lifers. Both men answered negatively, provoking outcry from pro-life Democrats and yet all of the remaining Democrat candidates hold extreme pro-abortion views.
There is nothing civilized about dismembering an unborn child in the womb or inserting a needle to induce a heart attack. As Heaton says, abortion is truly barbaric. It is astonishing that it’s 2020 and humanity still allows these horrific practices to continue; especially considering a majority of the country wants candidates who will restrict abortion from the current free for all.
According to a Marist poll last month, "65% of Americans are likely to vote for a candidate who believes abortion should be outlawed after the first three months of a pregnancy; allowed only in cases of rape, incest, or to save the life of the mother; or not permitted under any circumstance."
In a reply to a tweet condemning past Republicans for not defunding Planned Parenthood, Heaton clarified that she is non-partisan, “Republican politicians are cowards. That’s why I no longer participate in politics. Philanthropy only.” No doubt responding to angry tweeters suffering from TDS and accusing her of being a Trump sycophant, she went on, “P.S. I didn’t vote in the last presidential cycle and will not be voting in this one. I am not a Trump supporter.”
Sadly, today abortions are “shouted” and celebrated. In the industry Heaton works, TV programs are continuously trying to normalize abortion, whether by incorporating it into their on-screen stories or their off-screen activism. At least there’s one Hollywood star who stands with millions of pro-life Americans against the barbaric practice of abortion.
