A popular talking point from liberals in the aftermath of a new Alabama law that would criminalize most abortions is that rape victims would be forced to bear their children.
The implication here from the left is that babies conceived in rape deserve to be killed in the womb, and that’s a notion that pro-life activist Ryan Scott Bomberger finds reprehensible.
Bomberger, an African-American male, was conceived in rape and wrote an article expressing his frustration toward the disingenuous left titled, “I Am The 1 Percent Used To Justify 100 Percent Of Abortions.”
“My biological mother was raped, yet she rejected the violence of abortion. I was adopted and loved instead. I’m not the ‘residue of the rapist’, as Senator Vivian Davis Figures described those like me who were conceived in rape,” Bomberger wrote for the Radiance Foundation.
Alabama state Senator Vivian Davis Figures (D-Mobile) used the abortion bill debate as an opportunity to grandstand for mainstream media cameras:
“Do you know what it’s like to be raped? Do you know what it’s like to have a relative commit incest on you?” Alabama State Sen. Vivian Davis Figures grilled her GOP counterpart as the Alabama Senate passed a near-total abortion ban. https://t.co/L8bY9wCOoo pic.twitter.com/HdkeTJ73li

“I couldn’t control the circumstances of my conception. Could you, Senator?” Bomberger asked the Democrat lawmaker.
“My birthmom needed an active Healer in her life, not an activist huckster,” he added.
Bomberger gave the examples of Rebecca Kiessling, Valerie Gatto, Trayvon Clifton, Monica Kelsey, Jim Sable and Pam Stenzel as individuals who have led productive, inspirational lives after being conceived in rape.
“When it comes to rape and abortion, how do you heal violence with more violence?” Bomberger asked.
He makes it clear that extremists within the Democratic Party would be making these histrionic comparisons regardless of whether or not pro-life activists cede any ground on the issue.
“Even if Alabama’s Human Life Protection Act had a rape and incest exception, the confused Handmaid’s Tale cosplayers would still be out in full force. Fake feminists need to exploit tragedy to promote their false equality. And they never seem to find space in their screeds to talk about punishing the actual criminal—the rapist,” Bomberger wrote.
Bomberger pointed to an admission by Ron Fitzsimmons, the executive director of the National Coalition of Abortion Providers, that partial-birth abortion is “common,” the blackfaced Virginia Governor Ralph Northam’s tacit endorsement of infanticide, and the newborn butchery of convicted mass murderer Kermit Gosnell to show examples of barbarism caused by the abortion industry.
“Fake feminism is the extremism. It sees compassion in an act of violence. It sees strength when someone succumbs to despair. It sees (selfish) autonomy where God designed selfless dependency,” Bomberger wrote.
The controversial new Alabama law prohibiting most abortions is expected to be challenged by the courts, and perhaps even be taken up by the Supreme Court at some point.
DC Catholic Archbishop to Give Joe Biden Communion Despite Radical Pro-Abortion Views
Supporting abortion is a mortal sin.
Wilton Gregory, the Roman Catholic Archbishop of Washington DC, announced that he would not prevent Democrat Joe Biden from receiving communion at Catholic churches, regardless of the Democrat’s uncompromising support of abortion.
“The kind of relationship that I hope we will have is a conversational relationship where we can discover areas where we can cooperate that reflect the social teachings of the church, knowing full well that there are some areas where we won’t agree,” Gregory said. “They are areas where the church’s position is very clear,” said the bishop, who is the first African-American cardinal in the history of the church. Gregory was speaking to the Catholic News Service on November 24th.
“I hope it’s a real dialogue, because I think that’s the mantra of Pope Francis — that we should be a church in dialogue, even with those with whom we have some serious disagreements,” Gregory continued.
“It’s not a matter of confusion,” said Gregory. “On my part, it’s a matter of the responsibility that I have as the archbishop to be engaged and to be in dialogue with him, even in those areas where we obviously have some differences.”
Catholic clergy and laity have debated the premise of allowing pro-abortion and pro-homosexuality politicians to receive communion for years, with the issue often dividing more conservative and liberal members of the church.
Wilton Gregory was made into a Catholic cardinal this week in a ceremony in the Vatican. He’s been described as one of the most liberal senior prelates in the American church hierarchy, banning parishioners from carrying concealed weapons as Archbishop of Atlanta in 2014. He frequently assailed President Donald Trump, arguing that pro-American immigration policy deviated from the principles of the Catholic religion.
