Patty Murray: “Women are More Able to Participate Equally in Our Country” If They Can Abort Their Babies

Imagine a senior elected official standing on the U.S. Senate floor and asserting that women will never enjoy the same equality as men unless they are allowed to neglect or abandon their children.

Substitute “neglect/abandon” with the word “abort” and that basically was U.S. Sen. Patty Murray’s speech Wednesday, outlining her opposition to U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation.

The radical pro-abortion group NARAL, Planned Parenthood and others have labeled Kavanaugh’s nomination a “serious threat” to “women’s right to safe, legal abortion,” while national pro-life leaders have expressed high hopes for Kavanaugh and the future of unborn babies’ rights.

Murray, a pro-abortion Democrat from Washington state, focused on the abortion issue in her speech against Kavanaugh.

“Reproductive freedom means women are more able to participate equally and fully in our country,” she said. “I can’t adequately express how frustrating it is to have to assert this in the 21st century.”

Reproductive freedom is an umbrella term that abortion activists often use to disguise their support of abortion for any reason up to birth.

Murray continued: “Roe, and the rulings that have upheld it, make clear what women across the country know at their core to be true—that reproductive freedom is essential to a woman’s ability to control her future, plan her family, and contribute to her community in all the ways she may choose to …”

Murray claimed Kavanaugh does not trust women to make their own health care decisions – but by health care, she meant abortion. She also made it clear that she supports abortions for any reason up to birth, citing an example of a woman who aborted her unborn baby at six months of pregnancy because the baby had a heart defect.

“It was their family—their future—and her choice. She says she knows she did the right thing for her and her family, as difficult as it was …” Murray said.

Murray did not say why the decision was difficult, but most Americans know why. And it is the reason why a strong majority of Americans oppose late-term abortions. They realize that an abortion kills an unborn baby.

Abortion activists like Murray have been citing polls that indicate most Americans do not want the Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade, but these polls are deceptive. Polls consistently show that most Americans oppose what Roe did, allow abortions for basically any reason up to birth.

If Kavanaugh is confirmed to the Supreme Court, the high court will have a 5-4 conservative majority, and there are strong hopes that the justices would consider overturning Roe or at least allowing more restrictions on abortions.

Currently, nearly 1 million unborn babies are aborted every year in America. After more than 40 years of legalized abortion, many Americans – both women and men – still realize that freedom and equality can never be achieved by killing the weakest members of our society.
