A young pro-life activist completely destroyed the major abortion arguments during a hearing on Rhode Island’s late-term abortion bill.
Following the left’s recent trend toward infanticide, Democrats in Rhode Island are preparing to pass Senate Bill 152, a horrifying bill which would legalize abortion up to moments before the baby’s birth.
And as Matthew Thomas Foster pointed out at last week’s hearing, the Rhode Island bill is eerily similar to the equally horrifying bill passed in New York and bills proposed in Vermont and New Mexico.
“I found it to be uncanny parallel political thinking when three states can introduce a very similar bill within the span of two months directly after a midterm election,” he said, according to LifeNews.com.
Foster also slammed Rhode Island Democrats for keeping quiet about the bill while they were running for office in the midterm election.
“I followed the midterms pretty thoroughly and I didn’t see a single person talk about this bill in the midterms. This bill was not ran on,” he said.
He also went after one of the left’s favorite talking points when it comes to abortion — the idea that men need to “shut up” about their opinions on abortion.
“Men are told that we can’t talk. That when the children are dying, that when we see these things happening, we have to sit down and be quiet,” Foster said.
He explained that people always question why nobody spoke up when tragedies in history happened, and people will look back at the barbaric practice of abortion in the same way.
“Yet, we have the same gumption to look back into civilizations that commit genocide and say, ‘Where were you? Why weren’t you standing up? Where were all the people in Nazi Germany?’ Well, I wonder if maybe people will look back on us that way and say, ‘Where were all the people standing up?'”
If there is a return to civility in the future, people will look back at abortion in the same way people today look back at atrocities like genocide, slavery, and cruel forms of torture.
“We were told that we didn’t have voices, we were told that we didn’t even know morality. As men, we couldn’t speak up about our children.”
Foster also brought up Planned Parenthood’s questionable past and mentioned that the organization’s pioneer, Margaret Sanger, was a supporter of eugenics.
“Now we’re told that the organization has changed; it’s new people, they don’t think that anymore,” he said. “Yet, what is all of this that we’re seeing now? They’re saying, ‘Oh, we’re compassionate because we don’t want the poor family to have the baby.'”
Planned Parenthood and advocates of abortion often defend the barbaric practice by arguing that parents who aren’t wealthy enough shouldn’t give birth. As the activist explained, that line of thinking could easily turn into a form of eugenics.
“Before it was hatred: ‘We didn’t want the poor people to have babies because we thought they weren’t good for society.’ But, now, now, we’re so loving: ‘We don’t want them to have the babies because it’s not good for them. The baby won’t be happy; the baby will have a poor quality of life.'”
Foster was spot-on; abortion is a barbaric re-branded form of eugenics.
And like the barbaric practices of the past, it’s time for good men and women to stand up against it.
It’s always great to see well-spoken young people speak out in support of the right to life.
