In a sick and shameful move, Irish-American politician, Senator Ed Markey from Massachusetts wore a ‘Love Abortion’ pin to President Biden’s State of the Union address on Wednesday evening.
The pin features a small heart shape in the center of the first “o” in “abortion,” implying the wearer’s strong affection for the procedure which ends the life of a defenceless unborn baby and leads to deep life-long trauma and regret for many women who undergo the procedure.
The pin Markey and some of his pro-abortion colleagues wore was produced by Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion provider in the US.
Some have described Markey’s actions as a new low in the abortion debate, but for those who have been following developments closely, particularly in recent years, they’ve noticed that many proponents of abortion do not simply look on it as a ‘last resort’ but as something good and positive in and of itself.
The Abortion Right Campaign in Ireland, you may recall, issued a press release in 2022 ‘celebrating’ the fact that 6,700 abortions occurred in Ireland in the previous year.
Our job is not to despair when we hear news like this but rather to spread the word far and wide about how extreme the pro-abortion movement has become. The negative response in recent days in the US to Senator Markey’s outrageous actions shows that pro-abortion advocates may well be pushing things too far and are starting to lose the broad middle ground politically.
