50 million babies disagree with Gretchen Whitmer
Up in Michigan, Governor Gretchen Whitmer is doing something every day to make the front pages. Her latest executive order was interesting, to say the least. This is from the Catholic News Agency:
In an April 16 appearance on the podcast "The Axe Files," Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D) was asked by host David Axelrod to react [to] efforts by some states to limit abortions as part of their efforts to conserve medical resources and combat the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.
"We stopped elective surgeries here in Michigan. Some people have tried to say that that type of a procedure is considered the same and that's ridiculous," said Whitmer.
"A woman's healthcare, her whole future, her ability to decide if and when she starts a family is not an election, it is a fundamental to her life. It is life sustaining and it's something that government should not be getting in the middle of," the governor said.
Let me add a couple of thoughts.
First, abortion is not life-sustaining. Fifty million babies aborted since 1973 had their lives terminated, not sustained.
Second, the governor's comments are insensitive to people who have put off their medical procedures.
Well, this lady is either tone-deaf or in the pocket of the abortion lobby.
