This Abortion Activist’s Comment Supporting Infanticide Was So Offensive He Didn’t Want It Aired

On May 15, a video surfaced on YouTube that reveals how radical pro-abortion activists can be. In the video, a man identified as Alex told a reporter that abortion is always a woman’s choice, both before and after birth. The interviewer, Marissa Semkiw, was covering the March for Life in Ottawa, Canada when she met Alex.

According to The Blaze, Semkiw told Alex that some pro-lifers believe in banning abortion at certain stages of pregnancy, rather than banning it all together. She asked him how he felt about this and at first he said that it was “understandable.”

But then Alex exposed his true feelings about abortion: he said that abortion is okay at any point prior to delivery and post-natal abortions (infanticide) are acceptable as well.

Unbelievably, after the interview, Alex emailed Semkiw and asked her not to air the interview on her news station. However, she refused because she wanted to expose how far some will go to promote abortion-on-demand.

In Alex’s email he said, “After consideration, I request that you DO NOT use my likeness/image on your website or any other media platform,” he reportedly said in an email. “If any footage or photos come your way with a man holding a sign that says, ‘Guess What, A Woman’s Body Is Her Own F***ing Business,’ This is me.”

Unfortunately, this isn’t the first time a pro-abortion activist has stated that they support post-birth abortions. As LifeNews previously reported, Mark Harrington, the director of Created Equal, explained that he frequently encounters people on college campuses that find infanticide acceptable. Harrington said, “We encounter people who think it is morally acceptable to kill babies after birth on a regular basis at almost every campus we visit. While this viewpoint is still seen as shocking by most people, it is becoming increasingly popular.”

He continued, “This is the whole problem with devaluing human life at any stage—it will naturally grow to include other groups of humans; in this case, born humans as well as preborn humans. I talked with one young man at the University of Minnesota who thought it was alright to kill children if they were under the age of 5 years old, as he did not consider them persons until that age.”

Additionally, in the past Planned Parenthood has shared their support for post-birth abortion. In 2013, a representative from the abortion business publically acknowledged that they believe an abortionist shouldn’t be mandated to provide a child with medical attention after a failed abortion.
