Aborting an unborn baby may be a “parenting decision.” But it is a bad one.
Texas abortionist Ghazaleh Moayedi claimed otherwise in a recent interview with the NBC Today show.
Not only did Moayedi argue that aborting an unborn baby is good parenting, she also asserted that aborted babies are loved and cared for – while managing to never actually say the word “baby.”
“As a provider, I know that people who choose abortion are also making parenting decisions,” Moayedi told Today. “I see that every single day — whether or not they’re currently parenting a child, choosing an abortion is, at its heart, a parenting decision.”
The only way Moayedi can make such claims is to completely ignore the unborn child and the violence that she commits against them when she ends their lives in abortions. Mothers who come to her for abortions already are “currently parenting,” despite what she implied. From the moment of conception, unborn babies already are unique, living human beings, the children of their parents.
But Moayedi, a mother herself, never mentioned unborn children, or fetuses, or anything else that suggests a separate, living human being is inside its mother’s womb. Instead, she claimed that pregnant mothers “love” and “care” about the “pregnancies” that they are aborting.

“And so I have really seen and experienced the love that pregnant people have for the pregnancies that they are choosing to end,” Moayedi continued. “And those two things are not opposites — people can have love and deep compassion and care for their pregnancy, and know it’s not the right time.”
If Moayedi were honest with her patients, however, they would understand that there is nothing loving or caring about aborting an unborn baby. Abortions, no matter what the method, are cruel and violent acts that destroy unborn babies’ lives. Some unborn babies are poisoned, others are torn limb from limb while their hearts are still beating.
Though Moayedi is a medical doctor who should know better, she pretended throughout her interview that babies in the womb basically do not exist. She insisted that she takes care of “everyone” in her medical practice.
“And unlike many other areas of health care, I take care of everyone,” she said. “You could be a general OB-GYN and really only take care of a small slice of your community. But as an abortion provider, especially in a place like Texas, I take care of everyone. I really see everything — all of the highs and all of the lows of my community.”
The problem is that Moayedi refuses to treat everyone as patients. And in that respect, she is unlike most OB-GYNs.
According to a 2019 survey in the journal Obstetrics & Gynecology, “fewer than 1 in 4” OB-GYNs in the United States “were willing and able to perform” abortions. Likely, their reason is because they recognize that babies in the womb are second patients who deserve the same care and compassion as their mothers.
Last year, groups representing more than 30,000 doctors sent that message to the U.S. Supreme Court when they urged the justices to overturn Roe v. Wade.
“As physicians and other healthcare professionals, we know that when we care for pregnant women, we are caring for two distinct patients,” they told the high court in an amicus brief.
For most doctors – and most Americans, it’s clear that unborn babies are valuable human beings, their mothers who are carrying them are already parents, and both deserve care and compassion.
