(LifeSiteNews) – With the fall of Roe v. Wade, the abortion movement is openly panicking. The Democratic midterm campaign is based almost on enshrining Roe in statute, with President Joe Biden urging Americans almost daily to turn out at the polls to vote—a vote for a Democrat is a vote for abortion! Failed gubernatorial candidate and election truther Stacy Abrams even tried to claim that abortion could help lower inflation, stating on TV that: “Having children is why you’re worried about your price for gas, it’s why you’re concerned about how much food costs. For women, this is not a reductive issue.”

But after initially seeming shaky on how best to respond to the Dobbs decision, Republicans are finding their footing. Florida Senator Marco Rubio torched his opponent Val Demings for her abortion extremism and literally voting against protections for babies born alive after failed abortions. An exclusive poll by National Review revealed that American voters “believe that the mainstream Democratic Party’s position on abortion is ‘more extreme’ than the mainstream Republican position by a nearly two-to-one margin, according to a new survey from Republican polling firm WPA Intelligence.”

Indeed, the more Democratic candidates like John Fetterman openly admit that they support no restrictions on abortion whatsoever—not even in the third trimester—the more voters prefer the GOP position on abortion to that of Joe Biden and his feticide extremists. As Darel Paul pointed out: “If Dobbs is such a loser issue for Republicans this fall, why are candidates tied to the most restrictive abortion measures in the country sailing to easy victories?”

As I noted at the time, the Dobbs decision rocked abortion activists around the world. The response has been predictable—a near-constant torrent of lies, from their standard “abortion is healthcare” routine to claiming that pro-life laws prevent women from getting life-saving treatment. I’ve seen the media lie about abortion with breathtaking brazenness for as long as I can remember—but a recent article in the Guardian engages in Soviet-level gaslighting.

Quoting abortionist Dr. Joan Fleischmann of the My Abortion Network, the Guardian provides several photos of hard-to-discern “pregnancy tissue.” According to Fleishmann: “A lot of early pregnancy images are driven by people who are against abortion and feel that life begins at conception, or by prenatal enthusiasts who want women to be excited about their pregnancy. What about people who aren’t?” The article’s title? “What a pregnancy actually looks like before 10 weeks – in pictures.”

The only problem? The embryos were actually removed before the photos were taken. As ethicist Charles Camosy put it: “So, Poppy Noor and the Guardian managed to do a story on what a pregnancy looks like (takeaway: “it doesn’t look like what you think”) and in the nine week photo, for instance, they removed the baby from the photo. This is not a joke! Amniotic sac only. This story should be flagged for misinformation everywhere.” Dr. Calum Miller had the same reaction: “The Guardian published an article on ‘what a pregnancy actually looks like at nine weeks’ and literally removed the embryo and they think we are the ones promoting misinformation.”

To sum up: A pro-abortion journalist, working with abortion activists, quite literally erased the human being that is the focal point of the abortion conversation and blatantly lied to make people more comfortable with killing pre-born children. This is insidious and disingenuous. For the record, here is embryoscopy footage showing what the child looks like at six weeks from the Endowment for Human Development; here, if you prefer, is how the Mayo Clinic portrays the child. From National Geographic’s Inside the Womb to any embryology textbook you can lay your hands on, the evidence is overwhelming and insurmountable: the Guardian is lying.

Worse: they are lying for the express purpose of dehumanizing human beings; to other them, so that killing them will not seem like such a big deal. As the abortionist Joan Fleishman told the Guardian: “Abortion is medical care. Every single person who makes this decision is complex. But this information, showing tissue in the first 10 weeks, is literally absent from our common understanding of what is going on and people deserve accurate information.”

I suppose if you kill babies for a living, butchering the truth isn’t such a big deal.
