Radical pro-abortion feminists are attempting to normalize abortion as a method of birth control.
These abortion activists reject the belief that abortion should be “safe, legal and rare” and want to create a culture where aborting an unborn baby for any reason up to birth – including for sex-selection purposes or just not wanting to be pregnant – is considered normal and acceptable.
WABE Atlanta exposed the increasing prevalence of this extremist attitude in the pro-abortion movement when it covered the Rally for Abortion Justice in October in Washington, D.C.
One of the speakers, Kenya Martin with the National Network of Abortion Funds, said any reason for an abortion is OK, and women should not be ashamed of it.
“It’s OK to have abortions after some hot sex simply because you don’t want to be pregnant,” she said, according to the report. “I just didn’t want to be pregnant, and I want you to know that if that’s your experience, that’s OK, too. Your story deserves to be heard.”

Another speaker, Anna, who got pregnant as a teenager in Texas, went to a judge for permission for an abortion so she would not have to tell her parents, according to the report.
“I had to prove to the judge that I was a good student and mature enough to have an abortion,” Anna said. “Do you know what I wanted to say to the judge? ‘I am not a baby-making machine, and I should be able to decide if and when I become pregnant.’ ”
But she already was pregnant with a baby. Her abortion did not magically erase her pregnancy or her baby’s life; it ended her pregnancy by killing her unborn child, a unique, living human being who was unlike anyone else who ever was or ever will exist again.
Abortion activists are trying to insist that because abortions are common, they are normal and should be acceptable. But nothing could be further from the truth, as countless post-abortive mothers and fathers will attest to.
Many women, including victims of rape and human trafficking, feel pressured to abort their unborn babies by a society that deceives them with the notion that killing their own children is a solution to their problems. And too late, some mothers and fathers realize that their abortion did the opposite of help them; it destroyed their child’s life and left them with a lifetime of grief and pain.
Abortion activists can hide behind empty platitudes about “choice” and “rights,” but they cannot hide the truth of what a mother sees on an ultrasound screen or when she hears her unborn baby’s heartbeat for the first time. These simple experiences display the amazing, undeniable truth that unborn babies are valuable human beings who deserve a right to life.
