A radical left-wing activist bragged online this month about aborting her viable, late-term unborn baby after discovering unexpectedly that she was nearly seven months pregnant.
Though Jennifer Thompson, of Portland, Oregon, said her abortion “saved her f—— life,” the details that she described on Twitter suggest it was purely elective – and she got taxpayers to pay for it.
Independent journalist Andy Ngo, who reports about antifa, Black Lives Matter and other extreme leftist groups that often commit violence, shared Thompson’s story Thursday on his Twitter feed.
Ngo described Thompson as an “extremist abortion and BLM activist” who attends antifa riots and advocates for violence. Her posts about her abortion include “graphic detail” about her decision to “end the life of her viable baby at nearly seven months of pregnancy,” Ngo wrote.
In an archive documenting her Twitter posts, Thompson said she thought she might be pregnant on Jan. 12 when she noticed an abnormal discharge.
When a pregnancy test showed positive, she said she called Planned Parenthood and the Lilith Clinic, both abortion facilities, to discuss her “options” and then scheduled an abortion appointment for the next day.

She said the Lilith Clinic told her how to apply for the state Medicaid program so that taxpayers would pay for her abortion, and the program “immediately accepted” her because she was pregnant.
At the abortion facility, Thompson said the ultrasound technician informed her that she actually was close to her third trimester, somewhere between 27 to 29 weeks, and they could not do an abortion that late at the facility. She said they told her about late-term abortion facilities in Colorado and New Mexico.
Instead, she went to the Oregon Health & Science University where, just three hours after learning she was pregnant with a viable, late-term baby, the hospital began the abortion process, according to the archive.
“Sat, January 15, 2022 at approx 7PM: At OHSU getting a full confirmation of how pregnant I am — 27.5 weeks. I get a shot through my abdomen to stop the heartbeat,” Thompson wrote. “Sun, January 16, 2022 at 9AM: I’m admitted to the hospital and I start taking medication to induce labor.”
The next day, after a “grueling night” of pain and labor, she said she gave birth to a “2 pound, 7 inch girl. With no heartbeat.”
Thompson ended her story with a profanity-filled tirade against anyone who is not as angry as she is about pro-life efforts to save unborn babies.
“While this was probably the most emotionally traumatic thing I’ve experienced, this abortion saved my f—— life,” she wrote. “… But more than that, f—— fuming for those who don’t have that access. F—— fuming that our autonomy is being stripped away. Just know that if you’re not feeling that rage, you’re selfish.”
After Ngo shared her post, he said she lashed out at him, accusing him of doxing her and bragging that she would “get that abortion over and over again.”
Ngo said he simply shared what Thompson had posted publicly online. Thompson since has made her Twitter account private.
Oregon forces taxpayers to fund abortions and has very few limits on the killing of unborn babies before birth. While Thompson claimed aborting her unborn baby was life-saving, medical experts say late-term abortions are never necessary to save the mother’s life.
They explained why in a letter at The Public Discourse in 2019:
In cases where the mother’s life actually is in danger in the latter half of pregnancy, there is not time for an abortion, because an abortion typically is a two to three-day process. Instead, immediate delivery is needed in these situations, and can be done in a medically appropriate way (labor induction or C-section) by the woman’s own physician. We can, and do, save the life of the mother through delivery of an intact infant in a hospital where both the mother and her newborn can receive the care that they need. There is no medical reason to intentionally kill that fetal human being through an inhumane abortion procedure, e.g. dismembering a living human being capable of feeling pain   , or saline induction which burns off the skin, or feticide with subsequent induction.
Thompson’s unborn daughter appears to have been aborted by feticide, a procedure that involves injecting a poison into the baby’s heart through the mother’s womb and then inducing labor a day or two later.
Approximately 11,000 late-term unborn babies are aborted every year in the U.S., an estimate based on statistics from the Centers for Disease Control.
