“A form of killing that we need to be able to defend”

A radical defence of abortion | Sophie Lewis

Sophie Lewis calls for a more radical response to abortion; recognising that it is a form of necessary violence.We need to move away from the focus on abortion as just a form of health-care, or arguments around when human life begins, and defend abortion as a right to stop doing gestational work.Full Surrogacy Now: Feminism Against Family by Sophie Lewis is out now https://www.versobooks.com/books/2951-full-surrogacy-now

Many pro-life politicians and lobbyists hate the idea that mothers and fathers who pay to have their children murdered should be legally penalized more than they hate abortion itself. We know because they kill efforts to abolish abortion which don’t give automatic legal immunity to the parents.

Their argument is that our culture has been so inundated in pro-abortion propaganda for so long that people who pay for abortions are legitimately unaware that they’re committing murder. This is, of course, nonsense, as demonstrated by Miss Lewis in the above video. The pro-abortion side, with a few exceptions who are determined to remain the embryological equivalent of flat earthers, is no longer interested in spreading dishonest propaganda about the human in the womb. They’re candidly pro-child sacrifice.

University of Michigan Professor and Planned Parenthood abortionist Lisa Harris said at a National Abortion Federation conference that abortion supporters should shift from dishonest dehumanization to open embrace of mass murder: “Given that we actually see the fetus the same way [as pro-lifers and abolitionists], and given that we might actually both agree that there’s violence in [an abortion], ask me why I come to work every day. Let’s just give them all the ‘[it’s] violence,’ ‘it’s a person,’ ‘it’s killing.’ Let’s just give them all that.”

Mary Elizabeth Williams wrote an article for Salon in 2013 titled “So what if abortion ends life?” She explains that abortion supporters need to stop making silly arguments about wanted preborn humans being babies and unwanted preborn humans being ambiguous cells, and just embrace the killing and violence, as uncomfortable as that will be.

The pro-choice movement no longer pretends to not be a murderous one. The pro-life movement needs to stop pretending that people don’t know when life begins or what pregnancy is. In giving automatic legal immunity to mothers and fathers who have their children murdered, pro-life lobbyists and politicians are literally creating a right to self-induced abortion, among other disastrous consequences.

Abortion must be criminalized.
