I am indebted to C-Fam for reading things that the Guttmacher crazies write because it saves me from having to read what Planned Parenthood thinks about abortion. Because I already know they heart abortion like little girls love unicorns. They just have to manufacture and manipulate the science to meet their ideological needs.
Guttmacher, an arm of the abortion giant, regularly collects data and warps it or just says some crazy stuff. The latest and craziest is that forced abortions are exactly like any restrictions on abortion.
Well, let me tell you something. It might be the same to you but not to the kid who’s burned alive in the womb or has forceps tearing its arms off. It’s a bit different to them. Just a bit.
This is actually a big step for them because pro-abortion rights orgs haven’t really said much about forced abortion. You can’t really blame them. To them, it’s like those people who say they don’t want a surprise party on their birthday but secretly they really really want one.
I’d bet the only reason the American abortion industry doesn’t do forced abortions is because they wouldn’t know who would pay them. That’d be the only holdup.
C-Fam has the story:
In June of this past year, photos of a Chinese woman and her dead child flooded the Internet, accompanied by the account of how Feng Jianmei was abducted from her home and forced to undergo a late-term abortion by local family-planning officials. Mrs. Feng’s story spread across international news headlines and provoked outrage by national governments. The European Parliament issued a terse statement calling the incident “unacceptable.”
A recent article makes the case that any law which restricts abortion–such as waiting periods or parental consent–is the equivalent of China’s brutal forced abortion policy that victimized Mrs. Feng. The article from the Guttmacher Institute, the research arm of the abortion group Planned Parenthood, says this because both represent “coercion in reproductive decision making.” According to their analysis, “forcing a woman to terminate a pregnancy she wants or to continue a pregnancy that she does not want both violate the same human rights.”
