The irony came in spades in weekend tweet from NARAL Pro-Choice America, one of the most vocal abortion advocacy organizations in the United States.
This Father’s Day, they published a tweet featuring a photo of a father and his infant daughter, who is helping hold up a sign that reads, “I’m a battle-born feminist and I vote.” The text of the tweet wished a happy FAther’s Day to “#MenForChoice” who “support equality and value bodily autonomy.”
Celebrating abortion and fathers who would support it — on Fathers Day — is rich in irony.
As National Review writer Alexandra DeSanctis wrote, “There is nothing more perverse than using Father’s Day to glorify abortion and celebrate men who reject fatherhood.”
There’s another irony in the NARAL tweet we should address. Generally speaking, the pro-abortion left shouts down any pro-life man who voices his opinion on the matter, asserting men don’t deserve platform on the issue since they don’t have uteruses. However, when it comes to pro-abortion men, NARAL and others encourage men to speak up because, apparently, their anatomy no longer matters. Another tweet from DeSanctis illustrated that point:
Lastly, NARAL and others do not acknowledge the traumatic effect abortion can have on both post-abortive women and their male partners. Research has shown the following about men:
- Abortion is not perceived to be a benign experience.
- An expressed need for counseling is not unusual.
- The abortion decision is often deferred to female partners with concomitant repression of man’s own emotions.
- His containment of emotion is viewed as consistent with men’s perceived role as one of support.
- Relationships may be stressed by abortion-even leading to an increase in anger.
Clearly, there is a lot more to this propagandized “Father’s Day” message sent out by an organization that cares little about the reality of abortion and its traumatic impact on those who endure it.
