The abortion lobby’s message to women: “Without us, you’re nothing.”

If someone says that “nobody likes abortion,” assume the following: they’re either lying or misinformed. Because the fact is, some people do like it–for obvious reasons.

Child rapists like using abortion to hide abuse. That’s not hard when staff at Planned Parenthood (America’s largest abortion chain) think “being thirteen and pregnant alone is not a red flag.”

Similarly, human traffickers like how abortion keeps their victims working. Racists and those wishing to abort their daughters value it too.

Pickup artists” (PUAs) appreciate abortion; Christian McQueen explained why in “The Ten Slut Commandments,” a guide on how to “exploit” and “use” women with “low self-esteem” and “daddy issues.”

Christian McQueen quoteAnd while PUAs like abortion, abortion advocates seem to like PUAs; or at least their tactics, anyway. Specifically, they’ve embraced a technique known as “negative game.” The approach involves trying to build insecurity and using it to your advantage, a strategy pro-aborts know all about.

You see it a lot online: people suggest that banning abortion will reduce women to “cattle,” or “incubators.” The implication of course is that without the abortion industry, women are no different than animals or machines.

Negative Game

You can also see it in headlines like this:

Negative Game 2

The writer argues that because abortion is outlawed in Northern Ireland, women have no autonomy there… which would probably come as a surprise to the woman who governs Northern Ireland (and who, incidentally, favors keeping abortion illegal).

The claim that women need abortion to separate them from livestock isn’t exactly easy to take seriously. However, there’s another claim that has gotten traction: that Americans need Planned Parenthood to deliver health care. They don’t.

Planned Parenthood receives half a billion dollars from Washington every year despite a litany of scandals. Tell Congress that money should go to federally qualified health centers (FQHC) and community health centers (CHCs) instead. FQHCs and CHCs are more accessible than Planned Parenthood is, and they offer services that Planned Parenthood won’t.

The group New Wave Feminists recently put out a video explaining why women don’t need abortion. It’s time to let lawmakers know that taxpayers don’t need Planned Parenthood either.
