After years of using vague language to couch their quest to end the lives of preborn babies, the left is finally admitting that abortion means killing a child in the womb.
One day after President Joe Biden threatened to use his executive authority to fight a potential Supreme Court decision in Dobbs v. Jackson that would spell the end of Roe v. Wade, he admitted that abortion ends the life of a child.
“The idea that we’re going to make a judgment that is going to say that no one can make the judgment to choose to abort a child, based on a decision by the Supreme Court, I think goes way overboard,” Biden told reporters on Tuesday.
Unlike his allies at Planned Parenthood, Biden seems to understand that abortion doesn’t just involve the life of a woman, it also involves the life of a kid. That fact, however, didn’t stop him from sullying the court’s tentative move to hand decisions about killing babies back to the states as “radical.”
The View’s Whoopi Goldberg, another leftist icon, also declared this week that abortion involves a preborn child.
“My doctor and myself, and my child, that’s who makes the decision,” Goldberg said.
The ACLU similarly implied that abortion is the decision “when and if to have a child.”
“However the decision ultimately comes down, the ACLU will never stop fighting for the right to choose when and if to have a child,” the group tweeted this week.
Pro-abortion demonstrators at the Supreme Court this week seemed to understand that abortion takes the life of a baby too, with one person shouting to “kill those f-cking babies.”
The left’s confession that babies in the womb are in fact children and not a “clump of cells” is something that conservatives and pro-lifers have said for decades.
Even Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas lamented the court’s double standard on language surrounding the grisly act of murdering unborn children.
“It is curious how the Court’s view of the maturity of minors ebbs and flows depending on the issue,” he wrote in his concurring opinion in Jones v. Mississippi last year.
Thomas said the court wants to consider juvenile criminals “children” but when it comes to young girls having abortions, the court pretends they are responsible enough to make life-ending decisions.
“When addressing juvenile murderers, this Court has stated that ‘children are different’ and that courts must consider ‘a child’s lesser culpability,’” Thomas wrote. “And yet, when assessing the Court-created right of an individual of the same age to seek an abortion, Members of this Court take pains to emphasize a ‘young woman’s’ right to choose.”
It’s not lost on the people who support, fund, and run the abortion industry that medical textbooks have recognized that biological life begins at conception. Most of them are aware that, in the womb, babies develop a heartbeat, a functioning brain, working organs, touch, taste, and the capacity to feel pain. In later growth stages, preborn children even learn to breathe, hear, and “see.”
The difference between the pro-life community and the left is no longer about whether babies in the womb are indeed children. It’s that, even though Biden, Goldberg, and the ACLU seem to understand that abortion ends a baby’s life in utero, they and the rest of the abortion lobby are still advocating for the destruction of preborn lives.
