I thought we had seen it all from radical feminists — and what we've seen is way, way more than anyone other than a gynecologist needs to see.
Six years ago, Code Pink zealots traipsed across the fruited plain in giant female reproductive organ costumes demanding “respect” for women's bodies and women's abortion rights. They called themselves “dancing vaginas.”
Last January, militant femmes converged on the National Mall donning pink pussy hats, twirling nipple umbrellas, chanting, "Build a uterine wall!" and waving defiant posters that boasted "I DON'T REGRET MY ABORTION."
Last fall, actress Martha Plimpton (of Goonies fame long, long ago) bragged publicly that her first and "best" abortion took place at a Seattle Planned Parenthood. Plimpton promotes a movement to #ShoutYourAbortion. Adoring fans cheered and laughed as she assured them it was “heads and tails above the rest” of her multiple abortions. “If I could Yelp review it,” she cracked, “I totally would.”
Goodbye, Goonies. Hello, ghoulies.
Nothing to date, though, can top the Independence Day holiday display of grotesqueries committed in the name of “choice.” On the day we should unite as a nation to celebrate life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, prominent Aborticrats and their Hollywood court jesters were throwing a parade — literally — over the mass slaughter of the unborn.
Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer tweeted: “Today, I am celebrating the FREEDOM of women to make their own health care decisions, as established by the Supreme Court in Roe v. Wade.”
Schumer has lied about Planned Parenthood providing “mammograms, maternity care, cancer screenings & more.” As pro-life Live Action's Lila Rose reported, “The reality is, Planned Parenthood does zero mammograms, performs less than two percent of women's cancer screenings in the U.S., offers virtually no prenatal care, yet does over a third of the nation's abortions -- 887 abortions every day.” One of NARAL and Planned Parenthood's most ardent champions, Schumer high-fived colleagues in January after spearheading efforts to kill a bill banning late-term abortions past 20 weeks.
Three bloody cheers for butchery!
Riding the same wicked wavelength, “comedian” Michelle Wolf starred in a patriotic holiday special last week on Netflix to lead The Break's 10th Annual Salute to Abortion.
“Some people say abortion is ‘killing a baby.’ It's not. It's stopping a baby from happening,” she jibed. “It's like Back to the Future and abortion is the DeLorean. Everyone loves DeLoreans.”
Accompanied by a marching band, the Netflix star rallied: “Women, don't forget: You have the power to give life, and men will try to control that. Don't let them!” Tossing red, white and blue confetti, she shrieked:
“God bless abortions, and God bless America!”
The shock is not that this desperately thirsty clown can cackle callously about killing for cheap laughs. The real outrage is that she would be nowhere without the seal of approval of the White House Correspondents' Association, which gave her a coveted platform just a few months ago to jape:
“Mike Pence is also very anti-choice. He thinks abortion is murder, which, first of all, don't knock it till you try it! And when you do try it, really knock it. You know, you gotta get that baby out of there.”
Where are the demands for the Beltway press corps that giggled through that macabre monologue to disavow the She-Wolf?
Where are the compassionate liberals speaking up for women and men suffering from abortion regret or grisly botched procedures? What about the countless minority victims of predators posing as “reproductive health providers?”
Who will memorialize the unborn babies and moms who suffered at the hands of serial abortionist killer Kermit Gosnell? Who will shout the name of Tonya Reaves, a black female patient at Planned Parenthood's Loop Health Center in Chicago, who died after the staff performed a careless abortion on her and neglected her for more than five hours while she bled to death?
The same hysterical voices shrieking, “Where have all the children gone?” last week at the border have nothing to say about the nearly 60 million lives snuffed out on U.S. soil since Roe v. Wade.
Silence is complicity.
Silence equals death.
