‘Abortion storyteller’ says abortion “act of self-love”

A pro-abortion activist said that abortion is an “act of self-love” and refused to confirm that she did not support infanticide  at a House Oversight Committee in the US.

During the Committee meeting, an abortion activist, Sara Lopez, who has given lectures on abortion and organised for people to travel to different states to get abortions, said:

“My abortion was the best decision I ever made. It was an act of self-love”.

“I love my abortion”

On the website We Testify, Lopez writes that she “honors” her abortion and says: “I love my abortion and I will remain unapologetic because it was the best decision I’ve ever made”.

Her comments have caused a considerable backlash with Obianuju Ekeocha of Culture of Life Africa asking if abortion self-love was “like a day at the spa?”

Author Adam Ellwanger commented: “Imagine if the best thing you ever did was an act of destruction rather than an act of creation”.

In the same hearing, Republic Congressman Ralph Norman of South Carolina asked Lopez if she was supported infanticide, the process of killing a newly born baby. Lopez refused to answer the question even when pressed. The Congressman concluded the exchange saying: “I’ll take that as a yes, you do agree [with infanticide]”.

Roe v Wade

The hearing took place in the aftermath of the overturning of the Roe v Wade decision that meant that states once again have the authority to legislate on the right to life of the unborn child as they see fit. The original 1973 Roe v Wade judgement prevented lawmakers from recognising the right to life of babies in the womb and providing those babies with full legal protection.

Right To Life UK spokesperson, Catherine Robinson, said: “This woman’s comments are utterly tragic and deserves pity. We must hope she is making such comments for rhetorical effect.”

Dear reader,

MPs will shortly vote on proposed changes to the law, brought forward by Labour MPs Stella Creasy and Diana Johnson, that would introduce the biggest change to our abortion laws since the Abortion Act was introduced in 1967.

These proposed changes to the law would make it more likely that healthy babies are aborted at home for any reason, including sex-selective purposes, up to birth.

Polling undertaken by ComRes, shows that only 1% of women support introducing abortion up to birth and that 91% of women agree that sex-selective abortion should be explicitly banned by the law.
