The anti-abortion crowd often lays out arguments that are tired and based in something that doesn’t remotely resemble reality — overlooking the fact that they’re advocating a form of communism unheard of even in countries practicing Stalinism and Maoism (did Stalin ever say you have to sacrifice your body for nine months because a comrade needed it? No? Didn’t think so). Their claims that there’s a “right to life” are absolutely foolish in the face of our laughable healthcare system and the recent murders of Michael Brown and Eric Gardner.
Therefore, it’s very satisfying to watch the anti-choice advocates get decimated by angry women’s advocates, who eloquently illustrate their hypocrisy.
A pregnant woman in the United Kingdom was recently caught on video doing just that; she delivered an epic verbal beat down to a group of anti-abortion protesters that were filming women who went into a clinic.
The woman ripped into the anti-choice advocates, calling them “hypocrites” and telling them to help children in need instead of harassing women in distress. The woman in the video hasn’t been identified yet, but the video of her yelling at the members of the anti-choice group, Abort67, is online for all to see.
The video, which was captured by journalist Sunny Hundal, takes place in a London neighborhood; per UK law, there is no buffer zone between clinic and protesters, so Abort67 will park themselves near the entrance, filming women and holding signs of bloody fetuses.
The video begins with several counter-protesters, among them the pregnant woman, who are urging the man with the camera to not film the clinic entrance. After a few minutes of fruitless discussion with the Abort67 member who maintains that they weren’t filming women going in and out of the clinic, the pregnant woman loses her cool and rips into the anti-choice advocates:
You’re on the road. I agree with what they’re saying. It’s wrong what you’re doing. You don’t know why people are doing what they’re doing, but you want to be out here judging and filming… I just heard that same woman say ‘I had an abortion.’ You’re a hypocrite, you’re a big hypocrite. You had an abortion but because you’re not happy with what you’re doing, you’re standing out here making other people feel guilty. Like I said, many people have been abused. You don’t know what their reasons for. I think this is so wrong on so many levels.
She then turns on the man who’s wearing the chest camera, telling him that he’s a “liar,” and adding that:
I heard her tell you, turn off the camera. So be honest, man! Be real with the people.
Be real? These people have no idea what “real” is. They live in a fantasy world where you somehow have a right to life, absent any quality to making it meaningful. You have a right to have the state hijack control over your body at any time. They wouldn’t know what “real” is.
She finally tears into an Abort67 member (off-camera) who said that she’d had an abortion herself, telling the woman that “For you to be standing out here and making other women feel guilty is so wrong. So fucking wrong.”
At least once in the video, she can be heard directing that the anti-choice advocates go to Kids Company, which is a charity that’s not to far from the clinic. It’s a charity that offers programs for vulnerable children and teens; judging from her tone and her pronoun usage, she’s likely an employee.
The publicity from the video has helped the charity raise nearly £40,000, for the purposes of hosting a Christmas dinner for kids who need it. Unlike the anti-choice advocates, who, rather than work for a charity improve lives, would take the lazy and easy route out and pretend they’re accomplishing something by holding up offensive signs and harassing women in need of medical services.
