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.

Senate Democrats Shut Down Late-Term Abortion Bans, Born-Alive Protections
This party supports late-term abortion.
Senate Democrats blocked a vote on two major pro-life bills in the legislative chamber on Tuesday, leaving little doubt that the party is wholly united behind support for unlimited abortion.
The two laws that were blocked were the The Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act and the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protections Act.
The first law would prohibit abortion being enacted upon children who survive abortion procedures. Some Democrats have suggested that it’s fair game to carry out ghoulish abortion procedures on babies who are alive.
The second bill would’ve instituted bans on abortions enacted upon fetuses that are capable of pain. Such a ban would affect late-term abortions, most notably rare procedures that are carried out on fetuses that are more than 20 weeks into development.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer chalked up the blocking of the pro-life bills as a political move. He claimed the consideration of laws was merely a gambit to embarrass Democrats.
In remarks after the bills were blocked from a formal floor vote, he seemed wholly unreflective as to why it was right to dismiss legislation that would institute relatively tame and common-sense restrictions on widely unpopular late-term abortion procedures.
Pennsylvania’s Bob Casey, West Virginia’s Joe Manchin and Alabama Doug Jones were the only Democrats to vote to bring the Born Alive law up for further consideration on the Senate floor. The laws would’ve required 60 votes to advance beyond the Senate flilbuster, a margin they both failed to reach.
Republican Senators blasted the chamber’s Democrats for their extremist unwillingness to consider even the most mild of restrictions on late-term abortion.
Today the Senate was asked an important question: where is your line for protecting life? Is it when the child can feel pain in the womb? Or even after the child is born? https://t.co/B16HQ1ldzQ

The votes to shut down pro-life laws that are fundamentally limited in scope makes it hard for Democrats to argue that they aren’t the party of Ralph Northam.
