Teen Vogue is encouraging young girls to be abortion activists around the Christmas tree this year.

This week, the online publication (no longer a print magazine) published a “guide” to help teens convince their families and friends to support abortion on demand. The article is based around the assumption that every teenage girl supports the killing of unborn babies in abortions and only abortion activists have all the facts.

“… sometimes in the midst of holiday gatherings, tough topics can come up – especially in light of the recent Supreme Court decision which overturned Roe v. Wade,” the article began. “If you’re heading to holiday gatherings where you plan to talk about abortion with those who may not support it, there are a few steps you can take to foster a productive discussion.”

For advice, Teen Vogue only interviewed abortion activists: Andrea Schmidt, the public affairs project manager at Planned Parenthood of Orange and San Bernardino Counties in California, and Hannah Matthews, an abortion doula and author.

Some of their advice was good. For example, they encouraged teens to be open-minded, ask honest questions and listen to their family and friends, and they reminded them that a hostile attitude is counter-productive.

However, they also implied that pro-life Americans lack compassion and are ignorant of reality; and only abortion supporters fully understand the issue.

Schmidt advised: “Being able to say: I can understand why you’re concerned about that, that would be really scary, but what’s actually happening is this [can help]. One conversation might not change their mind, but that small, incremental change might give them more compassion that will lead to the longterm culture change that we need to restore our rights.”

They also implied that teens may want to assume the worst about their pro-life relatives and friends, suggesting pro-lifers might be “unsafe” and even cruel enough to cut off a daughter financially or throw her out into the street if she supports abortion.

According to the article:

Both Schmidt and Matthews stress that young people need to take stock of the situations they’re in and assess whether it’s safe to discuss abortion. This can be particularly fraught for young people who may rely on their families for housing, financial assistance, or other resources.

Later, Teen Vogue encouraged teens to research the facts about the issue – but only from pro-abortion advocacy groups.

“The more information you have, the more confident you will feel talking about abortion,” Schmidt said, recommending a “fact sheet” from Planned Parenthood, a billion-dollar abortion chain and advocacy group.

Then, the article recommended that teens “remind your relatives that abortion is personal” by sharing stories about the “tough case” abortions, such as a young girl being raped, and use those stories to justify killing unborn babies for any reason up to birth.

It told teens: “If an anti-choice family member agrees that a specific abortion is permissible, that’s a productive place to start. ‘Let’s talk about why this abortion is not your place to comment on but you feel like this other abortion is your place to judge and police,’ Matthews says. ‘Let’s connect some of those dots.’”

Be open-minded. Don’t be hostile. Learn the facts. Listen. All this is good advice for teens who want to have difficult conversations. The problem is that what they are promoting is the killing of unique, living human beings inside their mothers’ wombs, children who are dependent on her for support. Abortions hurt mothers and fathers, grandparents and siblings, too, but pro-abortion groups rarely tell teens that.
