Chelsea Handler Says Aborting Babies Protects “Women’s Ability to be Equal Partners in Society”

Pro-abortion comedian Chelsea Handler teamed up with the radical pro-abortion group NARAL to produce a new video Monday attacking U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

In the video, Handler says women are in danger if Kavanaugh is confirmed, because the high court could restrict abortion and possibly overturn Roe v. Wade, Bustle reports.

The video is full of misleading statements and inaccuracies but among the worst is the claim that women’s equality is at stake.

“Let’s be crystal clear: abortion rights, and by proxy, women’s ability to be equal partners in society, is on the line in this fight. Brett Kavanaugh will turn back the clock on decades worth of progress for women,” Handler says.

Hidden behind this claim is real discrimination against women. Abortion activists treat women’s ability to bear children as a weakness rather than a strength, and claim they need the ability to kill their own unborn babies to be equal to men. This narrative is true discrimination by the abortion industry and those who support it.

Handler continues, “Roe v. Wade — which for the past 45 years has protected our right to make our own choices about our own bodies — it’s in danger of becoming history.”

She then claims that “many states” already have trigger laws that would criminalize abortion when Roe v. Wade is overturned. Laughably, however, the video’s own graphic contradicts Handler’s statement. While she makes the comment, it shows just four states that would make abortions illegal – hardly “many.”

Later, she also claims women could be put in jail in the near future if Kavanaugh is confirmed.

“What could be more important than fighting for the rights of our daughters, mothers, and sisters not to be thrown in jail for making decisions about their own bodies and futures?” Handler says. “We need to do everything possible to defeat this nomination. We need to speak out. We need to call our senators. We need to take to the streets. Every single voice matters, and it’s a fight I know we can win.”

Abortion activists made similar claims when President Donald Trump nominated Neil Gorsuch to the high court, but they are not true.

Historically, the pro-life movement and the U.S. legal system have not prosecuted women for abortions, even prior to Roe v. Wade.

While pro-life advocates yearn for the day when unborn children are protected under law and abortions are banned, the pro-life movement continuously has opposed punishing women who have abortions — instead focusing on holding abortion practitioners criminally accountable for the unborn children they kill in abortions. Current abortion bans, such as the ban on partial-birth abortions, do not punish women who have abortions.

Handler concludes the video by urging abortion activists to call their U.S. Senators and tell them to oppose Kavanaugh.

“This is not a drill. Someday, a woman you love may need to end her pregnancy,” Handler says. “So, I know everybody’s sick and tired of calling your senators, but you have to keep doing it. We have to work and fight for each other.”

National pro-life leaders have expressed high hopes for Kavanaugh and the future of unborn babies’ rights.

A federal judge, Kavanaugh has served on the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for D.C. for more than a decade, where he developed an extensive record of protecting religious liberty and upholding restrictions on abortion. Pro-life leaders believe he would do the same on the U.S. Supreme Court.

Since Roe v. Wade, about 60 million unborn babies have been legally killed in America and countless mothers and fathers wounded by the lies of the abortion industry.
