At least two Democrat lawmakers wore “abortion” pins to display their support for killing unborn babies during President Joe Biden’s State of the Union address on Tuesday evening.
Ahead of the speech, U.S. Sen. Ed Markey, D-Massachusetts, and U.S. Rep. Madeleine Dean, D-Pennsylvania, both posted photos of themselves on social media wearing golden lapel pins that read “ABORTION” with a stylized O with a heart inside.
“I say the word, I wear the word,” Dean wrote on Twitter. “Abortion care is health care. Abortion care saves lives.”

Markey said the pins were a gift from Planned Parenthood. The abortion chain spends massive amounts of money to elect pro-abortion Democrats every year while reporting billion-dollar revenues and aborting more than 383,000 unborn babies annually.

“I’m wearing my abortion pin from [Planned Parenthood] to tonight’s State of the Union address,” Markey wrote on Twitter. “Abortion is essential healthcare and we need to codify this right.”

Last summer, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that aborting unborn babies is not a constitutional right in the Dobbs v. Jackson case. Now, states may protect unborn babies’ right to life again, and 14 currently are enforcing laws that prohibit killing unborn babies in abortions.
However, Democrat leaders want to end these life-saving laws with a bill to “codify Roe” nationwide — something Biden called for in his speech Tuesday evening.
Nicknamed the Abortion Without Limits Up to Birth Act, the bill would force states to legalize abortions for basically any reason up to birth and force taxpayers to pay for them. It also would end parental consent for minors and jeopardize conscience protections for doctors and nurses who refuse to abort unborn babies.
Dean and Markey both support the bill, as do almost all Democrats in Congress.
The lawmakers’ proud celebration of abortion Tuesday drew a lot of criticism online.
“Every abortion stops a beating heart. Pretty ghoulish to support violence in the womb,” The Federalist editor Mollie Hemingway wrote in response.
Obianuju Ekeocha, founder of Culture of Life Africa, described Markey as an “evil depraved man” for displaying his love for killing unborn babies.
Others expressed disgust and urged people to pray for the pro-abortion lawmakers to have a change of heart. One person reminded Markey and Dean that almost all abortions kill unborn babies with beating hearts, pointing to the heart symbol on their pins.

For nearly 50 years under Roe, abortions destroyed more than 64 million unborn babies in abortions. Only now that Roe has been overturned may states again protect the right to life for all human beings, born and unborn.
