If there is one thing we can take away from Friday’s March for Life, it is that decency and morality still exist in America. It was a welcome representation of the importance of life and the family after last week’s so-called “Women’s March,” a repulsive spectacle, complete with expletives, vulgar costumes and hats depicting female body parts.
What about the Women’s March was really about women? Other than trying to advance abortion in the most disgusting ways possible, not much. Not all women are pro-choice. In fact, the current abortion rate is the lowest since Roe v. Wade was passed 44 years ago, according to a survey conducted by the pro-abortion Guttmacher Institute, which showed that the abortion rate has declined to 14.6 abortions per 1000 women of childbearing age (15-44) and that the annual number of abortions dropped to under 1 million since the mid-1970s.
Another aspect that destroys the notion that it was a “women’s march” is that many women, particularly conservative and pro-life women and female groups, such as the Susan B. Anthony List and Feminists for Life, were scorned and turned away. It was a completely amoral scene, with fights, vulgarity, and even threats to blow up the White House. It wasn’t about women, it was about Leftism, hate and total selfishness.
Contrast it to the March for Life. These participants stood out in the cold on a Friday, when they easily could have been at work or in the comfort of their own homes. But they choose to show the ultimate selflessness by demonstrating the rights of someone else who cannot give back to them—the unborn child.
The idea of abortion being about women’s choice is asinine. Why should a mother have a choice regarding another life when the child has none about his own? Innocent, unborn babies have no voice, and the participants of the march gave them the voice that needs to be heard.
