The “tolerant” Left was at it again last week.
On Wednesday, a woman by the name of “Christy” stood outside the state capitol in Columbus, Ohio and attempted to speak out against abortion at a Students for Life rally.
As she began to speak, pro-choice Planned Parenthood supporters began to loudly chant, “My body, my choice” while crowding in to block her from those trying to hear her voice.
She was attempting to tell the crowd of her regret in having an abortion in 1972 but she was shouted down for approximately 10 minutes by pro-choice activists who no doubt would be complaining about their “free speech” rights if they had been interrupted while trying to give a speech.
Christy explained to the crowd that she had become pregnant at 16 by her boyfriend, who was 21. They both went to a Planned Parenthood clinic in Canton, Ohio to seek help.
She says she was told by Planned Parenthood that she had better act fast, that the abortion was a “simple procedure” and that what was inside her was only a “blob of tissue, like a tiny tumor.”
Christy told the crowd that her decision to have an abortion triggered a depression that lasted for years and even caused her to contemplate suicide. Also, she said that it led her to promiscuity and ultimately to chose to be sterilized so that she wouldn’t run the risk of pregnancy again.
Kristan Hawkins, Students for Life president said, “
“While we obviously disagree vehemently with those who advocate for abortion, Students for Life prides itself on having a civil discourse with those that disagree with us. In fact, we do this everyday on college campuses across the nationwide. Last night, the pro-abortion lobby decided that instead of civil discourse they would choose to disrupt and interrupt. They have no intention of hearing the opinions of those that disagree with them. I am proud of the way that our students, supporters, and speakers handled themselves and am looking forward to working with them towards defunding Planned Parenthood.”
Christy ended by saying:
“Planned Parenthood is hoping that women like me will remain silent, that we will just suck it up, shut up and remain in anger and denial. We share our stories because our experience proves that Planned Parenthood cannot stand behind their false rhetoric. They will not silence us, and they will not keep us in anger and denial, lost in our physical, emotional and spiritual pain. We prove that women do not need the misery of abortion. We do not need the betrayal, and Planned Parenthood certainly does not deserve any more of our money.”
Those on the Left continue to end the discussion before it even begins. In their minds, only one voice deserves to be heard and that is the pro-choice voice.
Some on the Left view abortion as the only option in many cases.
They believe that being pregnant especially at an early age can be easily “fixed” by an abortion.
Perez Hilton, left-wing celebrity blogger, recently offered advice to Kris Jenner, mother of 20-year-old Kylie Jenner after finding out that Kylie was pregnant by her boyfriend.
Hilton said in a YouTube video:
“I truly believe if I were Kris Jenner, the best option for Kylie and her future and for that child would have been for her to abort that baby. … And I would say the same thing to my daughter if she were to get pregnant under similar circumstances: her age, not a stable relationship, her just being totally unfit to be pregnant, in my opinion.”
At another point in the video, Hilton says: “Um, I love life, I love babies. If I were Kris Jenner, I would tell that girl to get an abortion!”
Sadly, like Planned Parenthood, Hilton apparently believes there is only one ‘suitable’ option for many young pregnant women and that is to “get an abortion.”
