David French on Abortion



Denounce Planned Parenthood as largest abortion provider

What about the areas where Trump fans argue that he'd clearly be better than Clinton? On abortion, we know what she'd do--protect Planned Parenthood, and appoint the standard-issue leftist legal technocrats to the bench. How much better would Trump be? It's impossible to know if his recent pro-life conversion is genuine, but it can't be a good sign that he still refuses to denounce Planned Parenthood, consistently using Democratic talking points to praise the nation's largest abortion provider.

A child conceived in rape or incest is every bit as human

It is extraordinarily disappointing to see Representative Renee Ellmers slamming pro-life groups as "childish" for insisting on a rape-reporting requirement in the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act. The reporting requirement was reasonable, defensible, and right.

Representative Ellmers (and her sympathizers in the House GOP) fail to understand how much pro-life groups are compromising to support bills with rape/incest exceptions to abortion bans. A child conceived in rape or incest is every bit as human, every bit as innocent, and every bit as capable of feeling pain when dismembered as a child conceived in different circumstances. Pro-life groups typically support bills with rape/incest exceptions not because they believe children of rape or incest are any less human but because they understand current political reality--that it's better to save some lives when pushing for purity could result in saving none.
