Abortion not a pathway to healing for rape victims says Live Action president
On a recent Hannity program, Live Action president Lila Rose pointed out to his guest that “Abortion is not a pathway to healing” for a rape victim.
As the 2016 election amps up abortion is once again making headlines. The debate is being fueled by damming undercover video showing Planned Parenthood and National Abortion Federation doctors openly discussing how they advocate the harvesting of aborted baby parts.
This was the background for a debate on Fox recently where the Hannity program, invited radio talk show host Leslie Marshall and Live Action president, Lila Rose to discuss the most recent tapes. At one point on the show, Rose calls Marshall’s statement that although the abortion procedure is gruesome she would not go as far as to “judge somebody else’s decision” a “cop out.”
“We should be judging these decisions,” Rose state emphatically.
Rose then goes after the Obama Administration for not investigating Planned Parenthood for what she calls “apparent illegal activity on tape:”
“People across the country are expressing their outrage on both sides of the political spectrum. So that’s why it is a shame that our Department of Justice right now is not doing a thorough investigation like many states are in order to ultimately lead into prosecution…where the crimes are taking place and convict these top level abortionists of selling body parts of committing illegal late term abortions…”
Later in the show, Hannity shifts gears to ask his guests their thoughts on a clip from The View where Whoopi Goldberg along with hosts Joy Behar, Cosby show child-star Raven-Symone and Michelle Collins criticized Ben Carson’s views on abortion after the 2016 presidential candidate told Meet the Press, “If people can come up with a reasonable explanation of why they would like to kill a baby, I’ll listen.”
On the clip you hear Behar’s response to Carson’s statement,“What can you say to that, you know? It’s pathetic.”
Post-abortive Whoopi Goldberg then added, “Sir, no disrespect, truly no disrespect, but it’s not your call. You don’t decide. You don’t decide, you don’t decide for anybody’s family here what they are going through and what they need.”
After playing the clip, Hannity defined his position on abortion this way, “I take the position that it is rape, incest and mother’s life,” Hannity states.
Abortion defender Leslie Marshall pointed out that Carson did not share Hannity’s exceptions asking, “This is a man who doesn’t agree with you with regards to rape and incest, Sean. How do we tell a child that’s been raped by the stepfather…that she can’t make that choice even though it’s legal now?”
Rose then apologetically weighed in:
“Why should a child who’s conceived in rape be given the death penalty for the crimes of his or her father?” Rose asks.
“I think we can do better for women who are victims of sexual abuse and trauma to say that abortion is somehow a pathway to healing. Abortion is not a pathway to healing its another violent act. And that’s why we need to be holding Planned Parenthood accountable for theses violent acts and the selling of baby body parts. And the ladies of The View by the way do not speak for American women. American women are largely against many kinds of abortion and that’s where we stand.” Rose states.
Rose is absolutely correct and women who are rape conceived would agree. Organizations like Choices4Life and Savethe1 have emerged across the nation to give a face to the children people like Marshall and Hannity say are expendable, the rape conceived.
In fact, next spring masses of rape conceived people plan to March in Mississippi, 50 years after the state allowed rape in cases of abortion. The Freedom March Life Wins event is being hosted by Choices4Life on Friday May 6th, 2016 at Jackson, MS. State Capital.
Event organizers say the goal is to show the world that, “love wins even after tragedy.”
