‘Eliminate the Sufferer, Not the Suffering’ — Pro-Life Advocate Schools Student Trying to Justify Abortion

2019 has been marked by many things, but most notably, it’s been the year of abortion.

It all started in January when the state of New York passed the Reproductive Health Act — a late-term abortion law that allows women to terminate a pregnancy through the third trimester. It’s the most progressive abortion law in the history of our nation since the landmark ruling of Roe v. Wade was passed on the same day in January 1973.

In the weeks and months that followed, we’ve seen other states like Virginia and Rhode Island propose similar bills, some that would allow for abortion all the way up to the child’s very first breath.

And while we’ve seen extreme moves taking place on the left, advocating for abortion in the name of women’s health, we’ve seen just as much action on the right, pressing for stricter abortion laws.

In March, PureFlix released Unplanned“, a movie based on the true life events of former pro-choice advocate, Abby Johnson. The Texas native spent eight years serving as the director of Planned Parenthood before an ultra-sound-guided abortion radically transformed her life and her views.

Despite several hurdles, including having virtually no visibility in the media, the movie blew box office numbers out of the water. And following its release, more than 100 abortion workers have reportedly left the abortion industry.

And of course, we can’t forget the now-14 states (and counting) who have recently proposed ‘Heartbeat Bills,’ which would make abortion illegal once a fetal heartbeat is detected — usually around six weeks. Of those 14 states, nine, including Alabama, Mississippi, Georgia, and Ohio, have already passed some form of a heartbeat bill.

As the national spotlight continues to narrow in on abortion throughout 2019, a common thread of debate tossed around by pro-choicers is that of children suffering in foster care.

Many who seek to justify abortion often turn to the suffering of those in America’s foster care system, to argue that there is in fact, a need for abortion.

Over the weekend, Students for Life of America released a video of pro-life advocate, Kristan Hawkins, tackling this argument head-on with a pro-choice supporter.


Recently, abortion advocates have been using children in foster care to justify the horror of abortion. Watch as a pro-choice student dodges the big question: should we eliminate the suffering or the sufferer?
