Indiana Stands Against Discrimination

Indiana is known nationwide as one of our most pro-life states. Indiana’s abortion rate has plummeted 20 percent in the last five years thanks to the efforts of pro-life activists. Now, Governor Mike Pence has signed into law a bill to restrict abortion even more. The new law will make it illegal for a woman to get an abortion because of the race or sex of the child. Women would also be restricted from aborting a child because it has a disability like Down Syndrome. Governor Pence called it a “comprehensive pro-life measure that affirms the value of all human life.”

Abortion advocates say the law will make women feel guilty about getting abortions. Patti Stauffer of Planned Parenthood called the measure “shaming and judging.” One Senate Democrat even called it “emotional terrorism.” This use of highly emotional language only shows how desperate abortion advocates can get. This legislation reveals the hypocrisy in the feminist movement. Feminists claim they want to protect and advance women, but they oppose a bill that would make it illegal to kill an unborn child for being a girl. Gender-selective abortion is real discrimination against women. Pro-life advocates need to point out this hypocrisy in feminist ideology. Many misguided people think that feminism is really about opening doors for women. In reality, feminism is about closing doors for women who do not agree with the liberal feminist agenda.

Unfortunately, feminists do not think unborn girls have rights worth protecting. We have a moral duty to protect the most defenseless among us, especially those being targeted because of their physical disability, race, gender, or age.
