Pro-abortion activist, author of “Handbook for a Post-Roe America,” and freelance writer Robin Marty explained in an article for TIME Life on Monday that women should really start a “rainy day fund” just in case they find themselves in a position where they choose to murder their unborn child.
The writer compares saving money for an abortion to “bankruptcy in case of a surprise job layoff, major life change like divorce or illness, or loss of a key resource like your home or car.”
Marty says that for thousands of women, bringing another life into the world is just so inconvenient, and can really cramp their style. Who wants another human to be responsible for when there’s so much living to do? That can really weigh a “progressive woman” down, ya know.
“While not everyone faced with an unexpected pregnancy will choose to get an abortion, it is an unavoidable fact that for many people giving birth is a too much of a financial, physical or emotional burden at this point in their lives, making abortion a safe – and constitutionally guaranteed – option,” Marty says, citing the heavily criticized Advancing New Standards In Reproductive Health (ANSIRH) Turnaway Study at the University of California at San Francisco – funded in part by billionaire Warren Buffett.
Apparently, the cost of an abortion goes up along with gestation, and Marty points out that the procedure can cost upwards of “$2,000 once a pregnancy reaches near 22 weeks.”
This is 1lb. 4 oz, 22 week old Austin Douglas, born 18 weeks early on March 31st, 2017. Austin is thriving today, against all odds.
Marty goes on to explain how in 11 states, private insurance plans provided by employers are forbidden from covering abortions of convenience, with coverage available only in cases of life endangerment or a physical threat to the mother. Marty complains about how Medicaid coverage is limited to covering cases involving life endangerment, incest, rape or severe health risks – stressing that some women simply find themselves in a financial bind, and can’t afford to murder their preborn babies.
Of course, this wouldn’t be a pro-abortion article without the “Orange Man Bad” rhetoric and fear mongering that Roe v. Wade will be overturned now with the October 2018 confirmation of Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Marty states: “with Trump filling the federal bench with more conservative judges, abortion opponents are betting they’ll find a more sympathetic audience for their claims. This, of course, is on top of the fact that, with the confirmation of Justice Brett Kavanaugh, there’s a real possibility that Roe v. Wade will be overturned and allow nearly half of the states to make abortion illegal or pretty much inaccessible.”
The question in my mind is, why start an “emergency fund” for abortion, when you could simply save for an “unplanned” child??
