Abortion Lobby Wants Pro-Lifers to Take Part of the Blame for War in Israel…But That Doesn’t Add Up

Caroline Wharton - 19 Oct 2023

Unless you live under a rock, you’ve undoubtably seen mass amounts of coverage of the war in Israel — and rightly so. The terrorist group Hamas has unleashed extreme terror upon the nation (including actually beheading babies), and the reports get worse day by day. As we’ve begun asking how the United States may have inadvertently contributed to this crisis, some pro-abortion politicians have ridiculously pointed the finger of blame at pro-lifers.  

Students for Life of America (SFLA) and Students for Life Action (SFLAction) President Kristan Hawkins and SFLAction Vice President of Media and Policy Kristi S. Hamrick recently published an op-ed on this topic at The Federalist entitled “Aborting Innocent Lives In America Won’t Save Innocent Lives In Israel.” They wrote:

MSNBC, ignoring the barbarity of Hamas, pointed to a lack of support for abortion as key to understanding an attack on Israel. If only Sen. Tommy Tuberville, R-Ala., allowed the Biden administration to illegally insert abortion into military spending, all would be well. Because of Tuberville’s opposition, former CIA and NSA Director Gen. Michael Hayden said the senator should “not be considered a member of the human race.” This comment led Tuberville to alert Capitol Police. 

“Political has-beens like David Frum and the often bitter Bill Kristol added their voices to those calling for a fast track to abortion spending, as if ending the lives of military family members would better prepare our fighting force to notice Hamas or support one of our most loyal allies.”  

Hawkins and Hamrick informatively ripped into the absolute lack of logic in these claims, and Tuberville thanked them for coming to his defense on the social media platform X (formerly known as Twitter). Their article does more than that, however — it also discusses the “exceptionally cold” choice the abortion lobby made in attempting to use such a catastrophe to further their own talking points. But when you’re A-OK with killing innocents in the womb and harming women and families in the process, it tracks that your conscience won’t balk at a little media manipulation.

SFLA and SFLAction firmly denounce and condemn any acts of violence. As leaders in the pro-life movement, we believe in respecting and protecting human life from the moment of conception until natural death. Every life is sacred, and every loss of life should be mourned. Our prayers are with the victims of this war.
