For the Left, Children Are Either Obstacles or Tools - Ben Shapiro

In the aftermath of a leaked Supreme Court draft majority decision prospectively overruling Roe v. Wade, the left in the United States has gone into full-fledged panic mode.

That outsized panic has manifested as a variety of unconvincing or blatantly immoral arguments: the argument that abortion is a necessary adjunct to women’s freedom—as though contraception doesn’t exist, and as though women are never responsible for their own sexual decisions and the consequences thereof; the argument that unless society provides for any number of government programs, abortion should not be prohibited—as though the solution to lack of universal child care is the death of the child; the argument that conservatives will next attempt to outlaw interracial marriage—an absurd slander on its face.

Underlying all of this is a perverse and inverted view of children’s role in society. To the left, children in the womb are utterly disposable; at best, women may choose to preserve their lives, but if not, they have no separate interests to be considered.

In fact, children are to be treated as potential obstacles: as Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen said this week, “access to reproductive health care, including abortion, helped lead to increased labor force participation; it enabled many women to finish school. That increased their earning potential.”

 

This explains why the left has now embraced the language of “forced birth” to describe laws protecting the unborn: pregnancy is no longer seen as the possible biological outgrowth of sexual activity, but as a dramatic foreign imposition on women.:snip:

Some Humans Ain't Human

"Some humans ain't human Some people ain't kind

You open up their hearts And here's what you'll find

A few frozen pizzas Some ice cubes with hair A broken Popsicle

You don't want to go there"
