Anne Hathaway Has a Terrifying Idea of What Mercy Is 

Caroline Wharton - 03 Nov 2022

After a recent appearance by the “Devil Wears Prada” star on The View, Anne Hathaway fans may be concerned about this celebrity’s sense of morality because she sure has a scary way of defining mercy — apparently, in her view, abortion is pretty much synonymous. Here’s what she said on the show, and why the Pro-Life Generation needs to be diligent in pointing out such inhumanity:  

During one of the latest segments of The View, co-host Joy Behar brought up an earlier social media post that Hathaway had made on Instagram which strangely tied a movie anniversary to the violence of abortion — and when explaining the post, Hathaway stated

“My own personal experience with abortion and I don’t think we talk about this enough, abortion can be another word for mercy. We don’t know. We don’t know. We know that no two pregnancies are alike, and it follows that no two lives are alike, it follows that no two conceptions are alike. So how can we have a law, how can we have a point of view on this that says we must treat everything the same?” 

She continued, adding further clarification about the movie anniversary:  

“We’re in the fight every day. We’re in the fight every minute. And you mentioned ‘The Devil Wears Prada’ turning sweet 16.  Some 16-year-old’s life has been irrevocably changed because of the overturning of Roe v. Wade.”  

Hathaway’s perspective is rather narrowminded — why is change bad? What about the preborn child’s life that has been irrevocably changed because it has been saved through the reversal of Roe and subsequent state pro-life laws? That’s a beautiful change. Why is the change of becoming a mother seen as the highway to hell? That’s also a beautiful change; motherhood is a wonderful thing — and it doesn’t mean that ambitions have to go away, although Hathaway seems to hold this view.  

Once again going back to “The Devil Wears Prada,” Hathaway said: “I played a young woman who was starting out her career. And when you are a young woman starting out your career, your reproductive destiny matters a great deal.” 

It’s interesting that Hathaway chose to use her character, Andrea Sachs, from “The Devil Wears Prada” as a role model for women — arguably, Sachs had a pretty miserable existence with her career, but a child isn’t a death sentence for the working woman. If Hathaway wanted to hold out one of her movie characters as an example, however, she may have looked to the part she played in “Les Miserables” as Fantine, a dedicated mother. That is a woman and a level of love to aspire to.  

Unfortunately, the abortion lobby is full of celebrities (Harry Styles, Jennifer Lawrence, Halsey, Lizzo, et.) who use their platforms to promote this violence against the preborn, spreading the wrongful message that killing someone can be merciful. It is our duty to speak up when such outrageous claims are made and remind our culture that killing innocents is a sign of a depraved society.
