Maybe it’s not a surprise, since they favor the destruction of human life in abortions, but pro-abortion activists are hating on a pro-life Republican congresswoman who shared on Monday how her unborn baby may die.

As LifeNews reported, Representative Jaime Herrera Beutler, a pro-life Republican from Washington state, recently shared the sad news about her unborn baby and a potentially fatal diagnosis.

Beutler posted a message on Facebook saying her unborn child has been diagnosed with Potter’s Syndrome, a condition which prevents the child’s kidneys from developing properly and is typically fatal for the baby.

Matthew Archbold, a writer for the National Catholic Register, has chronicled the hate that abortion proponents have sent Beutler’s way since she made her announcement.

“The news quickly became a national story and wonderfully thousands of people reached out to the expectant mother with words of support and prayers. Sadly, the request for prayers was politicized and/or ridiculed by many others,” he writes. “Some have greeted the news with a shocking amount of hatred, scorn and ridicule, even attacking her and calling for her to abort her child.”

Here are some of the hate comments Archbold found at the Huffington Post and elsewhere:

— Oh goody… and she’s GOP…. let’s all watch this one develop. Let’s see if she follows the party line ….

–Abort the baby. Wait a few months. Get pregnant again. This is not a big deal.

–I agree this should not be politicized but her party has been very busy ‘politicizing’ women’s right to choose for some time now. If nothing else, this may illustrate how no one is in a position to make blanket rules about the rights of others cause the shoe may just be on the other foot one day. If they rally around this instance and give her a pass for deciding not to carry a very compromised fetus to term it would certainly qualify as another example of RW extreme hypocrisy.

— …I hope she is able to comfortably make a choice to terminate the pregnancy, if need be and that she becomes an advocate for choice. Her health will depend on making an informed choice and I hope in the future, she promotes that idea for all women, not just herself.



— Why not be proactive and get an abortion?

— Republicans say—-Bring it to full term. They’ll take care of everything.

— Sorry, prayers won’t do a damn thing.

— She should just go to a Planned Parenthood and be done with “it”, after all, it’s not a human yet.

— …Maybe you’re supposed to sacrifice a sheep to make the prayer work? I don’t know. But it only takes 1 success story out of 10,000 failed stories to make people believe.

— It is my perception that she will be using this as “proof” that god exists if her baby is born healthy. It’s sad to see people be so selfish. What about the child? This is so selfish.

Stay classy abortion activists, stay classy.
