Democrat Congresswoman Celebrates Her Abortion, I’m “Never Sorry” for Killing My Baby

Democrat Congresswoman Gwen Moore said this week that she is “never sorry” about choosing to abort her unborn baby when she was a young, struggling mother.

Moore, who has represented Wisconsin in Congress since 2005, told ELLE magazine she chose to have an abortion at age 19 because it allowed her to write her “own destiny,” according to The Blaze.

“Because of my abortion, I could escape permanent poverty for me and my daughter and forge a new path. It meant I could write my own destiny,” she wrote Monday on Twitter.

In doing so, however, she destroyed her unborn child’s chance to ever do the same.

Moore said she had her first child when she was 18 years old and became pregnant again a year later. At the time, she said she had no job or money, and she was struggling to provide adequate care to her young daughter.

“I was desperate for an abortion,” she said. “This was pre-Roe, and by that point, I’d heard of women who had botched, self-induced abortions. … So I knew I wanted a safe procedure. I didn’t know how I was going to get it, but once I found out I was pregnant, I was on top of it day and night until I was able to secure help.”

That “help” came in the form of a network of “upper-middle-class white women” who paid for her to travel to New York City to have an abortion, she said. She described the trip as “surreal,” The Hill reports.

These women could have used the money to help Moore and both her children escape poverty; instead, they gave her an incentive to end her second child’s life through abortion. But neither the women nor Moore recognized that her unborn child was a child.

In the interview, Moore credited her abortion for her success in life.

“There were no complications, no problems, no difficulties,” the congresswoman said. “I really needed to reclaim my life, and having an abortion made a huge difference. I was able to get a degree. I was able to get some work skills under my belt and lean into my talents.”

She said she had her second child (really her third) when her daughter was 8 – “and those eight years really made a difference in terms of making sure I wasn’t permanently mired in poverty.”

Moore told ELLE: “I never looked back, and I was never sorry. I never felt like I did something that was inappropriate for me or my family or my situation. I was very, very grateful.”

But she ended her child’s life — a child who already existed, who already was a unique, irreplaceable human being depending on its mother for love and support. Her child’s life was not an obstacle to her success, her poverty was; but rather than address the root of her problem, Moore and those she sought help from believed that sacrificing an unborn baby’s life was the answer.

Whether Moore regrets her abortion or not does not change the fact that her unborn baby’s life was valuable, and aborting an unborn baby is wrong. Her child deserved the same chance to live and thrive that Moore had.
