Abortion Activist: “I Can’t Sleep at Night for Fear” Women Can’t Abort Their Babies

Pro-abortion leader Ilyse Hogue’s latest column oozes with desperation about Roe v. Wade and the future of the U.S. Supreme Court.

Hogue is the president of NARAL, a radical pro-abortion group that supports abortion for any reason up to birth and attacks charities that offer pregnant women choices other than abortion.

Writing for Medium this week, Hogue claimed she “can’t sleep at night for fear” that someday soon women will no longer be allowed to abort their unborn babies for any reason up to birth.

Her fear – and pro-lifers’ hope – is based on President Donald Trump’s second nominee to the U.S. Supreme Court, Brett Kavanaugh. If confirmed by the U.S. Senate, Kavanaugh would swing the court to a solid 5-4 conservative majority. National pro-life leaders have expressed high hopes for Kavanaugh and the future of unborn babies’ rights.

And that worries Hogue.

“I can’t sleep at night for fear we will wake up in a few years, staring down the barrel of at least two or three more decades of draconian rule, wondering how we allowed this nightmare to happen to our country — and our children — on our watch,” she wrote.

She described Kavanaugh’s record on abortion decisions as “chilling” and erroneously claimed he intends to “make women who seek abortions criminals.”

“He would end Roe and criminalize abortion, relegating women to a lower caste of citizens, from which we would not have the liberty to choose our own destiny,” she continued.

Ironically, Hogue claimed she is concerned about the rights of American children, writing:

If our democracy is going to survive, I’m stuck with the inconvenient truth that it is people like you and I who must do everything in our power to stop this blatant power grab through the Supreme Court. If this President and his cronies in Congress succeed in ramming through a thinly-veiled right-wing ideologue like Kavanaugh, their hate-filled, regressive policies will be preserved for generations to come, destroying the Founding Fathers’ vision of freedom and liberty, the wisdom of 250 years of the American experiment, and the future rights of our children.

But her entire work is centered around destroying child’s rights before birth. NARAL fights against even common sense abortion regulations such as parental consent for minors and bans on aborting viable, late-term unborn babies.

The case that she fights so hard for, Roe v. Wade, along with its companion case Doe v. Bolton, allows abortions for basically any reason up to birth. As a result, America is one of only seven countries in the world that allows elective abortions after 20 weeks, a fact confirmed by the Washington Post fact checker.

Since the Supreme Court handed down the infamous decision in 1973, about 60 million unborn babies have been killed and countless mothers, fathers, grandparents and siblings have been wounded by abortions.

Pro-lifers fight daily to restore basic protections to babies in the womb and to provide hope and encouragement to their parents. Hogue described this as “creeping, anti-American extremism.”

“For more than 30 years, the conservative movement, and their allies in the Senate, have been building towards this moment. The moment they could own the Supreme Court to force their radical agenda on the rest of us,” she wrote.

In reality, Hogue and the pro-abortion movement are desperately trying to maintain a stronghold on their judicial lifeline. They have failed over and over again to convince the American people and those they elect to support their radical pro-abortion agenda. Instead, they have relied on left-wing judges to overturn laws enacted by the will of the people to restore rights for babies in the womb.

Hogue’s real fear seems to be that her billion-dollar abortion movement could lose its power to destroy innocent human lives and profit from their deaths.
