Still 'Pro-Choice' After This? Then You Have No Soul (Video)

Still 'Pro-Choice' After This? Then You Have No Soul (Video)

I so appreciated a few years back when, in a jaw-dropping article titled, "So what if abortion ends life?" Salon.com staff writer Mary Elizabeth Williams, a mainstream, though uncharacteristically honest pro-abort activist, inexplicably broke from the Orwellian left's ministerial pro-choice script. In so doing, she severally undermined the very cause for which she admitted she would gladly "sacrifice" (that is, murder) her very own daughter — a daughter, mind you, whom she coldly acknowledged to be "a human life."

"While opponents of abortion eagerly describe themselves as 'pro-life,'" wrote Williams, "the rest of us have had to scramble around with not nearly as big-ticket words like 'choice' and 'reproductive freedom.'"

Here, Ms. Williams essentially admits what the life community has said for decades: that, as stated above, the euphemistic language of "choice" and "reproductive freedom," long employed by the multi-billion-dollar abortion industry, is exactly that: euphemism — propaganda.

In so many words, Williams acknowledges that, rather than "pro-choice," "pro-death" is indeed the appropriate moniker for her movement. "Yet I know that throughout my own pregnancies, I never wavered for a moment in the belief that I was carrying a human life inside of me. I believe that's what a fetus is: a human life. And that doesn't make me one iota less solidly pro-choice," she declares (wonder how many of the Williams kids survived mom's "choice").

Disturbing though this rhetoric may be, Williams punctuates her cold indifference to human life and equality with the money line:

"Here's the complicated reality in which we live. All life is not equal."

Get that, Thomas Jefferson? "All life is not equal." Put that in your self-evident-truth-pipe and smoke it. We clear, MLK? Wrap that "I have a dream" up in a big, wet "All life is not equal" blanket, and then get to the back of the bus.

Indeed, Ms. Williams is a militant feminist, and that's adorable; but her line of reasoning here is anything but fresh and cute. It stems from the utilitarian rotgut Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger poured down the gullet of her power-drunk eugenicist fans (foremost of whom was Adolf Hitler. Sanger likely held similar admiration for der Fuehrer).

Still, to be fair, and though Sanger and Hitler, no doubt, would wholeheartedly agree, I'll let Ms. Williams speak for herself: "Yet a fetus can be a human life without having the same rights as the woman in whose body it resides," she asserts. "She's the boss. Her life and what is right for her circumstances and her health should automatically trump the rights of the non-autonomous entity inside of her. Always."

"If by some random fluke I learned today I was pregnant," concludes Williams, "you bet you're a-s I'd have an abortion. I'd have the World's Greatest Abortion. … I still need to acknowledge my conviction that the fetus is indeed a life. A life worth sacrificing."

Thank you for your honesty, Ms. Williams. You're a godless, callous, soulless hack, but thank you for your candor nonetheless.

This is what it means to be "pro-choice," even though, in truth, there is only pro-life or pro-death. Which are you? Be honest with yourself. Watch the above video once more, and then exercise your only legitimate choice.

Choose life.
