NOW president: “I Don’t Care” if Life Scientifically Begins at Conception"

By Danny David

In a recent interview with KIRO Radio’s Jason Rantz, Terry O’Neill, President of the National Organization for Women (NOW), made clear the state of pro-abortion rejection of modern science.

O’Neill was asked whether she would still promote abortion, even if science conclusively proved that life begins at conception….which it, umm… has.
“I don’t care. Of course, I would support abortion,” replied O’Neill.
Rantz, apparently taken aback by O’Neill’s admission of indifference toward science, provided the opportunity for O’Neill to clarify. “Clear something up for me, because if I hear your answer correctly, it seems very extreme,” he said. “…[W]e have shown through science that life begins the moment that a fetus is created. This is not the potential for life — that is life. You are saying that you do support abortion. Isn’t that the textbook definition of murder in that case?”

But instead of answering the question, O’Neill attempted to debate religion. “Take religion out of it and we are not even having this conversation,” she said, in an obvious attempt to avoid a scientific discussion. O’Neill went on to state that she has no idea when life begins – an interesting claim for an individual living in 21st century America.

Continuing to harp on religion, O’Neill proceeded to imply sexist motivations behind objections to abortion…
