During the Kavanaugh confirmation hearings, I had chosen to abstain from writing anything about it. Largely because I do not know how long these things usually last and didn’t want to upload something in regards to it while it was still going on. However, I feel it necessary to speak about this particular topic on its own.
Aside from the craziness and near coup the Democrats are staging with the interruptions and protests and smearing campaigns throughout the hearing (which will result in nothing more than ammunition for Republicans to use in November) there was a point in the second day of the hearing that China’s useful idiot Senator Diane Feinstein (D-CA) tried to back Kavanaugh into a corner with a question regarding abortion and Roe v. Wade.
Feinstein tried to paint the picture that “a lot of women died” prior to abortion becoming legal and cited some statistics which have since been refuted, saying: “Deaths from illegal abortions in this country ran between 200,000 and 1.2 million… so, a lot of women died in that period.”
Feinstein also mentioned Roe v Wade, but Kavanaugh was having none of it. He responded with: “I will tell you what my view now is: It is an important precedent of the Supreme Court that has been reaffirmed many times. One of the important things to keep in mind about Roe v. Wade is that it has been reaffirmed many times over the last 45 years, as you know, and most prominently, most importantly reaffirmed in Planned Parenthood v. Casey in 1992.”
Feinstein tried to trap him again by asking him to define “settled law” but Kavanaugh did his best to circumvent the question.
Now, that’s as far as I want to get into regarding the whole confirmation hearing. That’s really all I need to set up this article. What I really want to talk about is those statistics Feinstein was using.
Like I said, they’ve been refuted. According to LifeNews, “Actual government statistics prior to the Roe decision in 1973 show nowhere near 1.2 million women (or even 200,000) died in abortions. A 1972 Center for Disease Control report noted the maternal death rate from abortions was 39 in the United States, the year prior to Roe.”
LifeNews even points out that “even abortion activists have admitted that the notion of women dying in so-called back-alley abortions before Roe is a myth because most abortions done prior to 1973 were done by doctors whose illegal abortions became legal after that infamous Supreme Court decision.”
But of course, they don’t expect you to take their word for it. They quote Dr. Mary Calderone, who in 1960 was the medical director for Planned Parenthood and wrote in the American Journal of Public Health that “about 90 percent of all illegal abortions are presently being done by physicians… Whatever trouble arises usually arises from self-induced abortions which comprise approximately 8 percent, or with the very small percentage that go to some kind of non-medical abortionist… So remember… abortion, whether therapeutic or illegal, is in the main no longer dangerous, because it is being done well by physicians.”
Even Dr. Bernard Nathanson, a former abortionist and co-founder of NARAL, which itself claimed between 5 and 10 thousand women died every year from dangerous, back-alley abortions, admitted that he “knew that the figures were totally false and I suppose that others did too if they stopped to think about it. But in the ‘morality’ of our revolution, it was a useful figure, widely accepted… The overriding concern was to get the laws eliminated, and anything within reason that had to be done was permissible.”
So two different pro-abortion sources have exposed the fact that the numbers Feinstein uses are completely made up, so that’s one way to dispute her arguments.
But let’s just say that those numbers were true. Let’s just say that 200,000 to 1.2 million women died from abortion before 1972. If that’s the case, it seems to me like the real problem here is the actual abortions, not the legality of them.
Had those hypothetical women not gotten abortions and instead had come to their senses that aborting their fetuses is effectively ending the life of not only another human being but their VERY OWN CHILD then I’m hard-pressed to believe that they would have hypothetically died, since they wouldn’t have gotten those abortions.
Why would a woman get an abortion if they thought there would be a chance that they would end up dying too? It seems like this statistic is more harmful to the pro-abortion crowd than the pro-life crowd.
But either way, true or false (definitely false), this is an argument that goes against what China’s employee of the month wants. Either that statistic is true and it highlights the problem of abortion itself, not the legality of it, or the statistic is false and it highlights Feinstein’s deceitful nature.
Of course, at the end of the day, it hardly matters when it comes to the confirmation hearing. Feinstein was more likely to sprout wings and fly than she was of voting in favor of confirming Brett Kavanaugh. She was always going to vote against him regardless of his answers. The good news is that he was smart enough to not be straightforward with his answers because there are some Republican traitors who are pro-abortion and would look for any seemingly legit reason to vote against Kavanaugh.
Do you know how we avoid that problem? By flooding Congress with Republicans and get as close to giving them a super-majority as we possibly can.
I, for one, can’t wait until Justice Ginsburg retires and Trump gets to pick her replacement.
