History being made

Lindsey Graham is just thrilled that Amy Coney Barrett wants women to be forced to remain pregnant when they would prefer to stop. He’s lucky enough to be the kind of person who can’t be forced to remain pregnant.

“I have never been more proud of a nominee,” Graham said. “This is history being made, folks. This is the first time in American history that we’ve nominated a woman who is unashamedly pro-life and embraces her faith without apology. And she’s going to the court. A seat at the table is waiting on you.”

It’s not that she’s “pro-life.” People who favor abortion rights are not “anti-life” or “pro-death.” It’s that she’s pro-forced pregnancy. That’s the issue. Abortion ends a pregnancy, usually at an early stage. Pregnancy is not the kind of thing that should be forced; it’s the kind of thing that should be as voluntary as possible.

Graham criticized some of his Democratic colleagues’ questions about a 2006 ad that Amy Coney Barrett signed on to, which said life begins at fertilization.

The ad was organized by St Joseph County Right to Life, an extreme anti-choice group that has also argued the process of discarding unused or frozen embryos created during the in vitro fertilization (IVF) process should be criminalized.

Embryos matter more than adult women; that’s goddy world for you.
