Our nation is seeing a revitilization of the pro-life movement, with hugely successful movies like Unplanned hitting theaters and states adopting stricter laws for the procedure.
Georgia is the latest state to pass a bill banning abortions after the baby’s heartbeat is detected. The bill is a huge victory for Pro-Lifers and a major step for protecting sanctity of human life.
But apparently Stacey Abrams thinks saving the lives of countless babies is “evil.” The Democrat politician, who lost the run for Governor of Georgia to Republican Brian Kemp, said so recently during an interview on MSNBC’s “AM Joy.”
Abrams’ comment is rightfully sparking outrage from those who believe in protecting unborn babies. Take a look at these tweets made in response to Abrams’ statement:
Life News had the following to say about Abrams' comment:
Pro-abortion politician Stacey Abrams slammed a Georgia bill as “evil” on Sunday because it protects unborn babies from abortion once their heartbeats are detectable.
Abrams, who lost to pro-life Republican Gov. Brian Kemp in 2018, criticized pro-life lawmakers and the heartbeat bill during a rally in Dalton, Georgia, according to the Times Free Press.
“HB 481 is evil. And it exists because it was a campaign promise. It exists because it was a political stunt,” Abrams said.
And while Abrams attributed insidious motives to pro-life lawmakers, the local news suggested that her motivation for attacking the bill is political power.
According to the report: “… Abrams has maintained that her goal since she was a child was to occupy the governor’s mansion that Kemp now calls home. She said legislation like the abortion bill could lead her to challenge Kemp in 2022.”
Georgia House Bill 481, the Living Infants Fairness and Equality (L.I.F.E.) Act, would ban abortions on an unborn baby after their heartbeat is detectable, around six weeks. It would allow exceptions for rape, incest and threats to the mother’s life. In addition, the bill would allow parents to claim unborn babies as dependents on their taxes and include the unborn baby in census data. It also would allow mothers to collect child support for pregnancy and delivery costs from the father prior to the baby’s birth.
It passed a final vote Friday in the House, and now is headed to the governor’s desk for his signature.
Kemp said he would sign it into law, but he is facing a massive protest from Hollywood elites who are threatening to boycott the state and take their millions in movie and television productions with them.
Abrams joined the pro-abortion movement in slamming the legislation Sunday.
“It is dangerous,” she told reporters after the rally. “I think it is scientifically insupportable. I know it will cause harm to women, especially to those women who face the highest rate of maternal mortality already. We know that we will lose doctors. We will lose jobs. And I believe it is purely a craven exercise designed to fulfill a political promise.”
Abrams is not the only one speaking out against the bill.
A protest is occurring amongst members of Hollywood like Alyssa Milano who are threatening to "boycott Georgia" is the bill is signed by Gov. Kemp into law.
Breitbart commented on Abrams' statement with regards to the Hollywood protest:
While discussing a potential filming boycott in Georgia if the bill becomes law, Abrams said, “We have to be a state that is not only friendly to businesses we have to be friendly to the women who work in businesses. You should not have to worry about you ability to controlling your bodily autonomy because the governor has pushed such an abominable and evil bill that is so restrictive. It’s not only bad for morality and our humanity, it’s bad for business.”
But, other celebrities, like Dean Cain, are having nothing of it.
