Elizabeth Banks Would Kill a Baby in an Abortion if She Could

Celebrating violence, actress Elizabeth Banks said she probably could “perform an abortion” after learning so much about it for her role in the new film “Call Jane.”

The British entertainment site Film-News reports Banks stars in the soon-to-be-released movie as a 1960s mother who turns to an underground abortion network, “the Janes,” for an illegal abortion. Later, she begins illegally aborting unborn babies herself.

The “Hunger Games” actress said she learned so much about abortions for the film that she probably could do one herself.

“I think I might be able to, actually,” Banks told Vanity Fair. “I’d like to have a little more practice because I didn’t actually ever get to dilate anybody. I got to learn about the tools, watch the videos. But the procedure that we performed from 1968, there are similarities to it now but it is not the exact same. And most abortions now are self-managed via two pills.”

Likely, what Banks learned was an aspiration abortion. This is “a procedure in which a suction catheter is inserted into the mother’s uterus to extract the preborn baby. Tools are then used to scrape the lining of the uterus to remove any remaining parts,” explained Dr. Beverly McMillan, an OB-GYN and former abortionist.

Aspiration abortion procedures typically kill unborn babies in the first trimester after their heart begins to beat. By the end of the first trimester, unborn babies already can suck their thumbs and stretch. Their brains are functioning and they already have tiny fingernails forming at the tips of their hands.

Ignoring the unborn child, Banks compared abortions to a “dental procedure,” asserting that they are “normal” and “everyday.”

She told Vanity Fair that she wants to “break the mythology that [abortion] is some scary life-threatening procedure when it’s way less life-threatening than dental procedures. So, that was really important to present the simplicity of it, the everyday nature of abortion, because if one in four women in America are getting abortions, that’s pretty normal.”

However, abortions are not normal or “health care,” and most OB-GYNs do not perform them. Abortions destroy innocent human lives. As prominent OB-GYN Dr. Monique Chireau Wubbenhorst recently told U.S. Congress: “Abortion not only poses risk to the mother. It is always lethal to an unborn child. It is my opinion that abortion is not health care,” adding, “The goal of any abortion is … to kill the embryo or fetus, which is a human being.”

Although Banks’ new film is fictional, it celebrates real women in the 1960s who — instead of providing real support to struggling pregnant mothers — killed unborn babies in illegal abortions prior to Roe v. Wade. Most women seek abortions in desperate situations, feeling that they do not have a choice. Studies indicate this often is due to financial struggles. But financial hardships can be alleviated with resources; women do not need to kill their unborn babies to survive or thrive.

Truly helping pregnant mothers in need means helping them and their families, including their unborn children, and that is what pro-life advocates are doing every day.
