Buckle-up Pro-lifers. They will say anything to silence us.

Buckle-up Pro-lifers. They will say anything to silence us.

Pro-abortionists want to distract everyone from the central issue. They want to keep everyone in the dark about what the abortionists are doing in their death chambers. They aren’t merely removing a clump of impersonal cells during an abortion. They are killing living human beings. They want to hide this central truth, but we must not let them do that.

The left is apoplectic about the shutdown of death-dealing abortion mills in Texas. Nothing is more catastrophic to them than that babies would no longer be subject to legal execution. And there is hardly anything they won’t say or do to get the abortionists back to the important business of killing the unborn.

For that reason, you can expect to hear some crazy, wild claims in days ahead. You are going to hear downright asinine allegations about pro-lifers and their “sinister” motivations. Here is a case in point. Jeff Greenfield claims in Politico that evangelical opposition to abortion was merely a pretext for racial discrimination:

It turns out that abortion was not really an instant trigger for conservative evangelical political engagement… The evangelical community was by and large supportive of abortion rights for years after Roe v. Wade was decided. It was only when powerful figures on the right saw abortion as a way to build support for their real agenda — private segregated schools — that Jerry Falwell embraced the cause.

So yes, you read that right. Evangelical opposition to abortion was never really about the sanctity of human life. It was about keeping black children out of white schools. I can hardly imagine a more cynical, dismissive allegation about evangelical pro-lifers. But there it is. It just goes to show that when the left can’t engage the substance of the arguments against abortion, they go straight for the specious ad hominem trope: “Hey, can you believe those pro-life rubes over there? They are just a bunch of racists. I’m so glad I’m pro-choice and not racist like them.”

If that seems absurd to you, that’s because it is. Nevertheless, that is the stock-in-trade of pro-choice polemics. Avoid the substance of the issue—the humanity of the unborn—and make unfounded and illogical attacks on the character of pro-lifers. Nevermind the fact that in New York “thousands more black babies are aborted than born alive each year, and the abortion rate among black mothers is more than three times higher than it is for white mothers” (source). Generations of black children have been exterminated in New York, but no biggie. It’s actually pro-lifers who are racist.

And if you think this kind of radical pro-abortion cynicism is a one-off, just watch. It won’t be. The baseless attacks against pro-lifers will continue apace without being fact-checked.
