MOSLEY: Goodbye to the Abortion Gaslighting

Patrina Mosley | The Washington Times

Gaslighting is the word of the year, but can we talk about how we have been gaslighted on abortion for the last 40 years? With Roe in 1973, the argument was to legalize abortion so that women aren’t dying in back alleys. Then in the ‘90s, as Bill Clinton coined it, abortion should be “safe, legal, and rare,” to the mid-‘00s, when “abortion is health care” became the mantra.

As we celebrate the birth of Jesus in the knowledge that Roe has been cast to the ash heap of history, we do so knowing there are nearly 1 million lives missing due to abortion this year alone — and nearly 400,000 of those are Black lives. Some may believe Roe was overturned due to those pesky pro-lifers that just wouldn’t let up on caring about babies being slaughtered — but in actuality, it was a combination of this and the fact that the abortion industry has just flat-out proved to hate women.

The argument for legal abortions used to be to protect women from the aforementioned back-alley abortions. Still, over half of all abortions are back-alley-like, where a woman takes a few pills to “self-manage” her abortion, bleeds out for a few days, risks hemorrhaging and infections, sees the bloody remains of her child in the toilet or shower and is told to take a few ibuprofens and feel empowered.
