The nation´s Spanish-speaking media openly act as activists in defense of unrestricted abortion, citing a "woman's right to choose". That is, unless a woman chooses to extend that same right to the unborn.
The latest instance of this open pro-abortion activism comes via Jorge Ramos’ aggressive questioning of conservative activist and stalwart defender of the unborn Adryana Aldeen- precisely about the choices women have regarding their bodies- during a segment about the Texas Heartbeat Law on his Sunday talk show, Al Punto.
Watch as Ramos badgers Aldeen, first accusing her of being an authoritarian, then pretending to know more about a woman’s body than a woman, and finally by implying that women have no idea of how babies are made:
JORGE RAMOS: Adryana, why are you or Governor Abbott, or a judge or a court going to decide over a woman's body? Why do you want to impose yourselves on to other people's lives?
ADRYANA ALDEEN: Well, it's not that we want to decide, obviously we're talking...
RAMOS, INTERRUPTING: But in practice it is like this, Adryana. Why decide over a woman's body?
ALDEEN: Well, we're deciding over the body of a little woman or a little man or several little men or several little women inside the body of a woman. It's not deciding, it's just that it's a life, it's a beating heart. And then it is important that they know that there are other choices, and protecting the right to life of the unborn.
RAMOS: Do you think that this will be extended? That is, that the law in Texas will be extended to the remaining 49 states?
ALDEEN: Well, I understand that there are other states and other governors that have mentioned that they would like to follow these steps because they have really lost control of what it is. There are many other options and really, the thing is... there is a sort of unmasking what abortion really is, not only in Texas, but in the rest of the country- because it is a lucrative business for those organizations that provide this service. There are many other options. And here we are seeing that the right to life of these unborn is important, but they are not neglecting the fact that women feel the crisis they are going through, and that they need help. And that's why those other alternatives that exist for abortion are also being provided.
RAMOS, INTERRUPTING: Sorry Adryana, but many women don't know that they're pregnant at six weeks. That is what many find unfair and cruel. They don't know.
ALDEEN: The vast majority do know, Jorge. I believe this is a bad, unfounded rumor and you can really know, and they can verify whether or not they're pregnant before the six weeks if they know that there was a reason why they should be pregnant, Jorge.
Acting as the ultimate pro-choicer, Ramos began the interview by attempting to put Aldeen in a box: “Adryana, why are you or Governor Abbott, or a judge or a court going to decide on a woman's body? Why do you want to impose yourselves on to other people's lives?”... “Why decide over a woman's body?”
Aldeen, who is no stranger to sparring with Ramos and other far-left activists on Al Punto, countered with, “Well, we're deciding on the body of a little woman or a little man or several little men or several little women inside the body of a woman. It's not deciding, it's just that it's a life, it's a beating heart. And then it is important that they know that there are other choices and protecting the right to life of the unborn.”
At one point during the segment, Ramos spoke like an expert on female anatomy, insisting that “many women don't know they're pregnant at six weeks. That is what many find unfair and cruel. They don't know.”
Aldeen´s reply is one for the ages: (As a woman), you “can know if you're pregnant or not by six weeks, and you know there was a reason why you should be pregnant, Jorge.”
Looks like someone needs a refresher on the specifics of birds and bees.
