Here is an extended interview of prominent Pro-Life activists one year after Dobbs.
If you don’t have the time for the whole discussion (and really folks, this is so important, that a tweet or Facebook post simply will not cover all the bases) at least listen to the first 10 minutes.
In the first 10 minutes of the video, they discuss the media’s portrayal of pro-life laws and how they believe this portrayal is misleading. For example, the media often presents pro-life laws as a threat to the health of women, suggesting that these laws prevent women from receiving necessary medical care.
This is a blatant distortion that the media perpetuates.
They emphasize that this is not considered an abortion, as the primary intent of the procedure is not to end the pregnancy by killing the unborn child, but to preserve the health of the woman.
The confusion or misunderstanding arises from the fact that for the past 50 years, abortion has been referred to as a healthcare procedure. This has led to the conceptualization of pregnancy as a disease and abortion as the treatment. In this framework it’s easy for people to believe that pro-life laws are dangerous for women’s health.
Since there is no medical situation where it is necessary to directly kill the unborn child in order to preserve the health of the woman; the media’s portrayal of pro-life laws as a threat to women’s health is a misrepresentation of the facts and a distortion of the pro-life position.
Well, there is so much more to learn in this video. For example, these Pro-Life Activists also touched on the issue of chemical abortions, which now account for over 50% of all abortions in the U.S. They expressed concern about the lack of discussion around this method of abortion, arguing that the media often glosses over the potential risks and complications associated with it.
It is a stark reminder of the importance of Truth in our society. So get informed. Even if you don’t agree with everything said, it will be a valuable effort.
