Couple laments that it’s difficult to abort their child


The media always tries to find a personal angle to a story. Usually, though, they realize not to try this for the issue of abortion. Best to drown the discussion in euphemisms, right?

Well, the Texas Tribune drove right past those warning signs and released this interview with a Texas couple lamenting how difficult it is to abort their baby. Scary stuff:

My friend Mollie Hemingway said of the video: “I think Texas Tribune tried to make a big pro-choice video but accidentally made a big pro-life video.”

UPDATE: Some have pushed back at me for quoting Mollie’s comments on this video. Neither Mollie nor I were suggesting this was a positive pro-life video. I thought that would have been obvious.

This video is not a parody. It’s an actual interview of a couple in Texas who are upfront about their desire to abort their child. It provides a revealing and scary look at how some people on the other side look at unborn life. It reminds me of our expose video at the Planned Parenthood rally in Chicago two years ago.

If we want to transform our society into a Culture of Life, we first need to better understand it.
