Five Craziest Reasons Politicians Have Used To Justify Abortion

Printed from:

Legal abortion has killed more than 60 million unborn children in the United States since 1973 and it continues to be the leading cause of death worldwide.

Widespread abortion is this country’s greatest moral failing and won’t stop any time soon. Politicians in both parties go to great lengths to try to justify abortion, and sometimes their reasoning is downright insane.

Here are five of the craziest reasons politicians have used to justify abortion:


1.  Climate Change

U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vermont) told a CNN Town Hall audience while running for president that abortion was a part of his environmental agenda.

Martha Readyoff, a teacher, asked Sanders this question:  “Empowering women and educating everyone on the need to curb population growth seems a reasonable campaign to enact. Would you be courageous enough to discuss this issue and make it a key feature of a plan to address climate catastrophe?”

Sanders said yes.

“Well, Martha, the answer is yes,” Sanders said. “The answer has everything to do with the fact that women in the United States of America, by the way, have a right to control their own bodies, and make reproductive decisions.”

“The Mexico City agreement which denies American aid to those organizations around the world that allow women to have abortions or even get involved in birth control to me is totally absurd,” Sanders added. “So I think, especially in poor countries around the world where women do not necessarily want to have large numbers of babies, and where they can have the opportunity through birth control to control the number of kids they have, is something I very, very strongly support.”

That sounds like something that would’ve happened in Mayan civilization:  killing babies to try to change the weather.


2.  Interracial Relationships

Former President Richard Nixon was generally not a fan of abortion, but he was if it meant fewer mixed-race babies were born.

The Nixon Presidential Library released more than 150 hours of audio from his presidency in 2009. Tucked away in those tapes was audio of Nixon telling special counsel Chuck Colson that he supported abortion in cases of rape and race-mixing.

“There are times when abortions are necessary, I know that, you know that’s when you have a black and a white,” Nixon said

If that were a Jeopardy! clue, the question would be “What is racism?”


3.  Special Education Costs

In February 2023, Michael Hugo was chairman of the Framingham Democratic Committee. He wanted the city to crack down on so-called deceptive practices from crisis pregnancy centers, and he testified in favor of a proposal to try to accomplish this goal in front of the city council.

During his testimony, Hugo said it would be bad for the community if more children with special needs were born — because that would cost the city more money for public education.

“Our fear is that if an unqualified sonographer misdiagnoses a heart defect, an organ defect, spina bifida, or an encephalopathic defect, that becomes a very local issue. Because our school budget will have to absorb the cost of a child in special education, supplying lots and lots of special services to children who were born with the defect,” Hugo said on February 7, 2023, during the public comment portion of the Framingham City Council, as NewBostonPost previously reported.

His logic was that because it costs more to educate special needs children, they should just be killed instead.


4.  Military Readiness

With her immense military knowledge, U.S. Representative Ayanna Pressley (D-Hyde Park) declared abortion necessary for the United States to have a strong military.

“In addition to full spectrum reproductive care being an essential human right – it is also a readiness imperative for our military,” Pressley said on the U.S. House of Representatives floor on July 13, 2023. “So if you care about the fitness of our military, then part of that readiness imperative includes access to the full spectrum of reproductive care.”

The United States has the most powerful military in the world. It spends far more on its military than any other country and has thousands of nuclear bombs. It has the potential to do immense damage to enemy combatants. It doesn’t need to kill unborn babies to be strong.

And besides, the military is supposed to protect American civilians; killing babies in utero does the opposite of protecting them. 


5.  Catholicism

The Catholic Church opposes abortion. The Church’s Catechism makes that clear, and Pope Francis has likened abortion to hiring a hitman.

Yet in June 2023, on the one-year anniversary of the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Services decision that overturned Roe v. Wade, more than 30 Catholic Democratic members of the U.S. House of Representatives — including Jim McGovern (D-Worcester), Lori Trahan (D-Westford), Stephen Lynch (D-South Boston), and Nancy Pelosi (D-California) — issued a statement invoking their religion to defend abortion.

“The fundamental tenets of our Catholic faith — social justice, conscience, and religious freedom — compel us to defend a woman’s right to access abortion,” the lawmakers wrote. “We are committed to advocating for the respect and protection of those making the decision if and when to have children.”

It’s doubtful that even Joe Biden, as incompetent as he is, would sign such a statement, since he admits he is personally not a fan of abortion.

He’s a terrible president and a sellout on a life-and-death issue, but at least he’s honest about it.
