On Tuesday evening, a New York City superintendent was gathering the garbage when he felt something strange. It was a baby. “When I found the baby,” he said, “I didn’t know if it was real at first. It was so bad.” Not surprisingly, it made him sick. “After what happened, I just stayed in my apartment for a while because I didn’t feel well.”
Two days later, a 20-year-old woman was arrested and charged with self-abortion in the first degree, a misdemeanor.
Andrea Miller of NARAL Pro-Choice was outraged. “They have taken what should be a medical and public health matter and turned it into a criminal case,” she said. Sonia Ossoria of the National Organization for Women agrees, saying, “it’s absolutely outlandish to charge her with self-abortion.”
So a woman kills her own baby, and the sole source of anger coming from the pro-abortion community is that she is being prosecuted. Not a word of sorrow about the dead baby.
In a perverse way, they may have a point: why is it criminally wrong to perform the exact same procedure that a well-paid doctor can do legally? If she is a monster, what does that make him? Moreover, had this same superintendent found a baby in the dumpster who had been dropped there by a Planned Parenthood worker, there would have been no prosecution.
Those running for president should be asked about this issue. Their answers would no doubt prove to be revealing.
