A disturbing new video tries to convince the public to support the killing of unborn babies out of “love.”
A project of the National Network of Abortion Funds, the video asserts that “Everyone loves someone who had an abortion.” It appears to be a positive message — one that pro-lifers would agree with — but the pro-abortion group warps the concept of “love” into something that isn’t love at all.
According to Ms Magazine, “The video outlines the necessity of abolishing stigma around abortion, the ways in which politicians have attempted to prohibit our constitutionally-guaranteed right to reproductive healthcare, and the importance of abortion funds.” “Top Chef” host Padma Lakshmi narrates the video, and Molly Crabapple is the illustrator.
In other words, the real goal is not to encourage love and compassion. It’s to demand full societal acceptance of abortion.
“The truth is abortion is very common,” the video begins.
This much is true. About 61 million unborn babies have been aborted in the past four decades in America, and, though abortion rates are dropping, nearly 1 million babies continue to be aborted every year in the U.S.
Meanwhile, pro-lifers frequently encounter hurting mothers and fathers who regret their abortions. Through pregnancy centers, post-abortion healing ministries and other outreach efforts, they provide counseling and other resources to help people grieve and heal from the loss of their unborn babies.
The video, however, promotes ideas to make abortions even more common. There’s no more safe, legal and rare, no more abortion is a difficult decision or a necessary evil. Instead, it asserts that abortions “must be legal and available without the shame,” “a real option to all people without shame or judgment.”

It attacks the Hyde Amendment, which prohibits taxpayer funding for abortions in Medicaid. The amendment has saved an estimated 2 million unborn babies from abortion, but abortion activists want to see it gone. The video portrays the amendment as an injustice to poor women who cannot afford abortions. According to the National Network of Abortion Funds, it “forces” women to stay pregnant when they do not want to be.
The pro-abortion group claims it has a “vision of radical love” that involves everyone supporting abortions without restriction and taxpayer funding for them.
Their vision certainly is radical, but it is not love. Abortions destroy unborn babies’ lives, often in brutal barbaric ways, including by dismemberment. Abortion victims are precious, valuable human beings who are unique and living from the moment of conception. Abortions hurt mothers and fathers, siblings and grandparents, too. The pro-life movement loves and values women who have had abortions, and many now are pro-life leaders themselves.
True love rejects evil, even when it is not popular. It values each and every human being, even when it is difficult and requires sacrifice. Abortion does the exact opposite.
