Leading abortion provider Planned Parenthood has once again doubled down on its belief that the killing of unborn babies is “moral.”
In a tweet sent out earlier this week, the group insisted that abortion is not only moral, but should also be classed as “health care.”
Responses to the declaration were swift and overwhelmingly critical. “Abortion is ‘health care’ like the death penalty is ‘just helping someone get a good night’s sleep,'” one person wrote. “Yeah, crushing the skull of a developing child with forceps and pulling their body apart limb from limb is incredibly moral,” another added.
There is “no morality in taking the lives of those who are most vulnerable,” tweeted another.
An identical assertion was made by a Planned Parenthood Medical Director during last week’s U.S. House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.
“[Abortion] is important, it is healthcare, and I support people being the experts in their own lives in making decisions for themselves,” Dr. Colleen McNicholas told Rep. Thomas Massie (R-Ky.) during the proceedings.
Conservative podcast host Allie Stuckey, who was testifying before the committee from the pro-life side of the argument, vehemently disagreed with McNicholas.
“I don’t quite understand the logic of saying that killing the child in the womb is moral, is healthcare,” she replied. “In what other situation, besides when the child is defenseless in the womb, do we call killing someone ‘healthcare,’ do we call killing someone ‘moral?’”
Following the hearing, Stuckey tweeted out her reflections. “If there’s anything I learned from today’s hearing on abortion legislation, it’s that Democrats’ arguments on the subject are truly nothing more than silliness,” she explained. “Euphemisms, generalities, strawmen & gaslighting is all they have. It’d be funny if babies weren’t dying as a result.”
