It’s uncanny how much this sounds like what Canadians experienced last week with Rona Ambrose. From the UK:
The Conservative minister for women has backed calls for a reduction in the legal limit for abortions, because advances in medical technology mean many very premature babies now survive after birth.
And the response of pro-abortion advocates: (Deliberate use of term “pro-abortion” here, in case anyone is offended by that. Ask me why!)
Darinka Aleksic, the campaign co-ordinator for Abortion Rights, said: “The fact that the minister responsible for women and equalities wants to restrict access to abortion, one of the most important women’s health services, is really alarming.”
It doesn’t matter what the reason is (this UK minister cites scientific development whereby we see babies live at younger and younger ages), some of these abortion rights folks balk whenever abortion is being restricted for any reason at all.
They stand for abortion rights, not women’s rights, and the two have virtually nothing to do with each other.
