Abortion is morally wrong — and it’s sexist and racist, too

Gavin McInnesRebel Commentator

I'm a Catholic — I'm even a member of the Knights of Columbus — and I'm pro-life. But I don't understand how so-called progressives can be pro-choice. Abortion is anti-feminist and anti-black.


Shouldn’t Black Lives Matter care about the estimated 2000 black babies aborted every day?

And what about the millions of women who say they're pro-life? If we're supposed to "listen to women" on this topic, why don't we listen to them, too?

Sex-selective abortion is a growing problem, and not just in China. Here, immigrants from Indian do it all the time. But I guess criticizing that would mean questioning "diversity" and "multiculturalism," right?

That’s a good point. They were just so hard to watch. They made me sick.

John S i want a gun to protect my body, who are you and the left to tell me otherwise? Oh yeah , you are hypocrites.
Spanking is horrible but abortion is fine, more hypocrisy.
Also i am not happy with the way my nose looks, why is the taxpayer not paying for my plastic surgery, MY BODY, MY CHOICE.

Jan G was that in Canada, i believe in Canada the baby is not considered a person until birth so as to allow abortion until the moment of birth.

John Sciliano why do others have to pay for it , and late term babies are born alive outside the womans body , how is it still her choice involving her body then? Oh of course you will not answer , you are a coward.

Story: a man shoots his girlfriend in the stomach because she is pregnant. Kills the baby (intentionally) but the woman survives.
He is charged with murder. True story.
But the abortionist kills the baby through abortion and he is not charged.

Please, read up on what abortions are really all about, the botched abortions, the babies aborted who live, the aborted living babies who are left to die, the baby bodies thrown in the dumpster, and on and on and on.

Listen to people like Abby Johnson, a former Planned Parenthood director who is now a pro-life activist.. Why, because she realized she was wrong. Powerful story.

It is NOT pretty and no matter how much you are pro-life, unless you really see and watch the reality of what abortions are, you still don’t know what they are all about.

Your knowledge could just maybe stopped someone from having an abortion.

Thank you Gavin for bringing this to the forefront.

Marilyn Neisen:
Oral contraception actually causes fetal abortion. I you read any literature or information on natural contraceptive methods, you will realize that the pill is actually causing these regular ‘abortions’ without women even realizing.
Read up on the Creighton NaPro Technology and you will understand the natural method (and I don’t mean ‘the rhythm’ method) of birth control.
If more women were not so willing to be ‘ready and able’ to have sex on demand, they wouldn’t be on the pill, messing up their bodies, subjecting themselves to breast, ovarian, uterine cancers, not to mention what the pill has done to the children they did produce (eg. ADD, autism) .
Natural birth control requires communication between two people (man and woman) and thus intimacy to be involved with the process of this natural birth control.
But ‘intimacy’ is an unknown ingredient in most people’s live/relationships, unfortunately.

On the liberal side of it. Everyone born is considered an asset to the government. The economic losses from abortion factor into the hundreds of billions

Hi Gavin. Peace of Christ be with you. I’m a 1st degree, I remain that the least shall be first. I am waiting for my copy of Gosnell since I contributed. How come the world knows about a silverback that was killed at a zoo but no one knows Gosnell? I’ve been dedicated to the point that contraception is immoral. I was blessed with one son, who taught me what love meant. Two others were miscarriages including a blighted ovem, where all the signs of pregnancy were evident but the sac had no embryo. I thought I knew what love was, until it was presented to me. We are not made to lose our children. Can you imagine how God feels when he loses one of His?

Jim Clark:

Sorry………but EVERYONE needs to watch videos about abortion and see what it really is.
Especially pro-life advocates. They are the ones who need to explain what abortions are. If they don’t see it, then they don’t know what it is either.
How can you defend something you haven’t seen?

Bravo Zulu:
You’ve said it before you don’t have problems with abortion under those circumstances but you know what………..IT’S STILL A BABY WHO HAS A PROBLEM WITH BEING ABORTED UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCE!!!!!!!!!
A story,…..the newspaper reported a baby being born with one arm missing. Why? Because the ‘mother’ changed her mind during the abortion, only the abortion had already started dismembering the baby and it was born without the arm torn off from the abortion.
Society has to start supporting women and taking care of women/girls who get pregnant under ANY circumstances. And society means family, friends, anyone involved with that person (and that ‘person’ is of course a woman/girl).
I know a woman who, along with her 7 sisters and brothers were sexually assaulted by their father. She had an abortion and has been bulimic since it happened; they all have major psychological problems because of the father. Why? Because no one helped them, confronted him, protected them, loved them. He went on to live another life and they are left with the reality.
She was raped and she killed a baby. What did he do? He went on his merry way.

Sorry, but society has to start taking care of women rather than condemning them when they are pregnant. They are NOT the only ones involved. Where the HELL are the men?

If you are pro-choice watch this video because you should see what you are defending. If you are pro-life do not watch it because it shows how abortion is performed, using animations, and it is horrifying. These videos were created by a an obs-gyn surgeon who has performed 1600 abortions and who now refuses to do it.

Three months or less. After that, have the child and put it up for adoption or you’re a disgusting and terrible monster and no longer a human being.

This is one of those topics that really sickens me. Abortion is murder. Period.

Gods judgement, karma, whatever you want to call it happens in this life. It is not really complex, simple actions and reactions. The judgement for allowing approx 100,000 abortions per year is that Canada’s population doesn’t reproduce at a rate high enough to support the economy or social programs. In response, our wonderful government is importing 100,000’s of immigrants that hate us and want to destroy our way of life. It’s kind of ironic.

100,000, that is how many brainless morons have unwanted pregnancies each year. It is too hard to have a little self control or use one of the many effective methods of birth control? Then it is too hard to suck it up and take responsibility for your poor choices? It absolutely boggles the mind and shows just how depraved our country is. No wonder you can’t talk any sense into most of the radical left. Most have probably been involved in abortion or other seriously immoral behaviour themselves and are emotionally invested in their insane world view.

Gender selective abortion puts the pro choicers between a rock and a hard place. If they say it is wrong then they take away the exclusive right of the mother to put value on the unborn. They would then have to admit all unborn babies have value. Abortion is about one thing only – convenience.

Marilyn…well said and I agree.
commented 2016-07-04 13:16:27 -0400
“Thou shalt not kill.”
Abortion is the premeditated murder of a human being…in the womb!
All the twisted logic and pinko BS semantics forced on us by the unelected and radical feminist judicial tyrannists of the SCoC – designed to assuage the baby-murderers correctly felt guilt – and the lies and sins of omission of the MSM and their social engineering/Goebbels propaganda techniques – all aided and abetted by morally bankrupt politicians sniveling after the ‘popular’ vote…does not change the FACT that abortion is the premeditated murder of a human being…in the womb, and “Thou shalt not kill…”
commented 2016-07-04 13:08:40 -0400
Sorry, but what I fail to understand in these modern times, when birth control pills have been readily and inexpensively available since the 1960’s, why anyone, anyone at all has to face an unwanted pregnancy. Women who find themselves pregnant, who don’t want to, are supremely STUPID!!!! Also, if the ordinary citizen is forced to pay for an innocuous eye examination, then these stupid females should be forced to pay for their unnecessary abortions.
commented 2016-07-04 12:56:39 -0400
Good job at showing abortion from another perspective!
That was pointed out pretty clearly!

I wonder if they can identify the Leftist gene???

I know it’s bad taste but if they keep going I’m sure they’ll find the gene for will power and aggression to turn us all in a couple generations into nations of sheep

Joe B.: the lack of $$ for drug-addicted babies is to discourage drug addicts to breed in order to feed their habit. The drug addicted babies are still accepted for adoption, we just don’t want to encourage drug use.
commented 2016-07-04 12:13:02 -0400
I have a hard time with abortion unless it is rape or incest.

But wait – we are not allowed to talk about it in Canada.

You will be attacked.

I wonder why doctors even do it – thought “do no harm” was part of their life?

Guess not.

“Hi honey – I am home.”

“Yeah Hon it was a decent day.”

“What did I do today?”

“I killed 6 kids today.”

“Yeah, let’s go out to dinner – want some pizza?”

The social conservative movement is only united now on foreign policy and law and order issues. They are basically the PCs with the name Conservative but to me their economic policy is not moderate on tax cuts. I would like targeted tax cuts and preferably income tax cuts but the Conservatives are definitely not for opening up abortion and gay marriage.

So yes the social conservative movement is definitely in decline and I do hope that the next leader is a progressive conservative, a Pearsonian on foreign policy and someone with moderation on social issues and this means someone for investment in infrastructure, poverty reduction programs and truly a federalism where all provinces and jurisdictions work together.
commented 2016-07-04 12:10:13 -0400
I’m 99% aligned with conservative views in general, but abortion is the place where I’m not.
That doesn’t mean that I think that it’s morally right, but I’m still with “a woman’s right to choose”.

I’d compromise on not state funding elective abortions (“pro-choice” people can put their own money into it!), but that’s as far as I’d go.

Basically, 100% with Harper’s official position.
commented 2016-07-04 12:05:33 -0400
Even Harper never brought it up and he is hardly a progressive. In fact in opposition he was probably the most social conservative opposition leader and member of the Alliance and Conservative party. He changed once he realized that his party was within power in 2003-04 after the merger between the PCs and the Alliance. With Kenney gone, the party does not need even talk about abortion. They have conceded so much ground since then and in 2006 they were mainly talking about gay marriage and now even that is off the table. It seems to me that the Conservatives are going to be a law and order party but against reopening abortion, gay marriage and even stem cell research.

John….don’t make ME laugh. It is hilarious to listen to the leftist regressive fucktards preach their hypocrisy.

John Siciliano. Another way to prevent pregnancy is to not have sexual intercourse

Abortion will never end in Canada as many in society would protest and demand its return.

Women have a right to do what they want with their bodies and Mulroney passed this even though he did not want it back in 1988 because the Supreme Court of Canada made it so.

So this means that Rebel can complain all they want and gin up all the morality they want but they want wars and they claim to support human life and life as a result. Talk about being hypocritical. I have nothing against reducing abortion levels and finding ways to have full employment in society, so abortion does not have to happen and people can lead healthy and fulfilled lives. Of course, those that want abortion banned and people charged for murder are the same people that want the death penalty, people to suffer in prison, wars without end and yet these people claim to have some sort of religious influence. Don’t make me laugh.

Abortion is here to stay since the poor need it as a safety net.
commented 2016-07-04 11:39:55 -0400
So, Billy Howard, you are already qualifying human life by over-ruling drug-addicted babies in your proposal, eh? That’s not pro-life, it’s pro-choice (“I chose to adopt the healthy baby but to hell with the drug-addicted one”). Careful what you wish for, Billy.

Is murder morally wrong? Abortion is murder. Supporters of abortion are accomplices to murder. End of discussion.
