Life Sustaining Abortions

Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, a Democrat, discussed abortion in times of the coronavirus pandemic during David Axelrod’s “Axe Files” podcast. Whitmer, who has drawn criticism for the coronavirus restrictions she’s implemented, noted that while Michigan has put a hold on performing all “elective” surgeries, abortions can still be performed in the state and are considered “essential.”

Abortionist Gretchen appeared on the podcast of former Obama adviser David Axelrod claiming that abortion are “life sustaining.”

“A woman’s healthcare, her whole future, her ability to decide if and when she starts a family is not an election, it is a fundamental to her life. It is life sustaining and it’s something that government should not be getting in the middle of,” Whitmer said.

Question: “Why is it that women cannot make that decision before opening up the garden for planting? Why must the decision wait until the crop starts coming in before clearing the land? 

Indeed, such “elective” procedures as hip replacements and tumor removals are mere “luxuries,” whereas the destruction of an “infant” in the uterus is a fundamental “life sustaining” necessity.

Many years ago, when “Roe v. Wade” was first being twisted into penumbras and pretzel logic a women could get an abortion, on the government dime, merely by saying “I don’t know what I’ll do with a baby! I might commit suicide!”

That was “for the life of the mother.” That was four decades ago. I am sure it is even worse now.  Thanks to Gov. Gretchen Whitmer it is now “life sustaining.”

I remember pre-Roe v. Wade in New York in the 1960s, when they had the “life of the mother” exception. Everyone knew that all it took was a claim to be pre-suicidal about a pregnancy, and a permission slip was issued for a “therapeutic” abortion in a city hospital.

The condition then was termed “Situational Anxiety.” Now “therapeutic” is too mild. It has to be “life-sustaining.” Probably a setup in case of the overturn of Roe v. Wade and a return of the “life of the mother” exception.

Life sustaining. Well that’s a new one. I assume the Governor means for the woman, the child being “sacrificed” might see it differently.
