(LifeSiteNews) — When the news broke that Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer would be vetoing $21.4 million in funding for pregnancy centers that assist mothers in finding alternatives to abortion and adoption programs due to their refusal to provide abortion or abortion referral, Dr. Charlie Camosy tweeted: “I spent many years trying to convince fellow pro-lifers that virtually no one is pro-abortion and there’s tremendous common ground available in working together to expand real choice. But the “one choice: abortion” crowd is now quite large. And growing.” Camosy is a former board member for Democrats for Life.
The evidence for that has been coming in fast and hard since the Roe leak several months ago. The Today Show published an article titled “Eight dads share how abortion shaped their lives,” in which men expressed their gratitude for being able to abort inconvenient children that would have transformed their lives (as people tend to do). The Washington Post published a grotesque piece of reportage profiling the mother of twins in Texas who admits she loves them dearly, but is not sure what she would have done if she’d been able to abort them. The point of the article is crystal clear: The Post journalist wants us to believe that it is a tragedy that these twins survived, not a blessing that the law protected them.
Particularly egregious was when Ana Navarro, a political commentator, cited her disabled relatives when explaining why abortion was necessary. She stated the quiet part out loud: If we can’t get abortions, what are we going to do with all of these disabled kids?
But the view of a particular sort of progressive was crystalized this week in the testimony of Renee Bracey Sherman, an abortion activist who has been referred to as “the Beyonce of abortion storytelling.” Testifying before the House Committee on Energy and Commerce on the effects of the Dobbs ruling, Bracey Sherman openly explained how to “self-manage” an abortion by taking pills. She wore green, the chosen color of the abortion movement; she also added her pronouns to her name-tag. Some people, she stated, believe that the process she was describing should be illegal—but in her mind, it was necessary to ensure women everywhere could access abortion.

To be a child in America, Bracey Sherman stated, was to enter an unimaginable hellscape. “Once these children are born, immigrant children are caged apart from their families,” she testified. “Trans children are turned into political fodder. Young students are murdered in their schools, and black and brown parents live in anxiety about the day that their children encounter the police. These issues are not separate from abortion. They are the realities we consider when weighing whether we want to bring another life into this country.” In other words: America is so awful that aborting babies before they take their first breath outside the womb can essentially be considered a form of mercy killing.
This is a dark, barren outlook that utterly rejects all human hope, all spiritual faith, and the power of love to bind us together and to make life lovely. It is also hyperbolic, apocalyptic, and deceitful, propaganda designed to paint abortion as a desperately needed alternative to living in America. I’m glad she said it on TV, because most Americans will not recognize their lives in her description of their country. Abortion activists are telling us what they stand for—and it is about time.
