The Pro-Choice Movement’s Year of Panic


By Jonathon Van Maren

Sick of hearing bad news all the time? Well, then enjoy what the abortion activists over consider to be bad news: The pro-life movement was so successful in 2015 that their silver lining is a desperate hope that the pro-life movement has made so much progress, Americans will now start to turn against them.

For example, mourns columnist Michelle Goldberg:

"The past year might have been the worst for abortion rights in America since Roe v. Wade was decided 42 years ago. This was the year that David Daleiden’s Center for Medical Progress infiltrated Planned Parenthood and turned shop talk about fetal tissue into a propaganda coup, leading to five separate congressional investigations. Support for abortion bans without exceptions for rape or incest became the normative position among Republican presidential candidates."

The worst year for abortion rights since Roe v. Wade? Well, Happy New Year. A few notes, though—the reason that “shop talk” about “fetal tissue”—that’s what pro-choice people call baby heads and limbs and marketable cadavers—was such a propaganda coup is that we got to hear abortionists casually chuckle about burning babies on bonfires and eyeballs falling out of baby heads and other nightmarish scenarios. So regardless of Planned Parenthood’s protestations that “everything we did was legal”—when have we heard that before?—millions of people realized, with shivers running down their spines, that abortionist shop talk sounds something like a working script for Saw IV: Reproductive Rights Run Amok.
