… (By that point, there are much more efficient ways to end the pregnancy. Like, say, giving birth.) Yet for the past three years, anti-choicers have aggressively promulgated the fiction that such “birthday abortions” (this fake phenomenon even comes with its own nickname) are not only possible, not only likely, but actively embraced by Democrats.

It’s such a blatantly obvious lie, one meant to demonize and dehumanize Democrats (or anyone misidentified as a Democrat, like nonpartisan little me). It’s so disgusting that pro-lifers are pounding this drum with their LIE that babies are being gleefully murdered by their mothers on the hospital bed and calling it abortion. And I wonder…of all the arguments against abortion, this is the one they choose? It’s because they don’t actually care about babies. They care only about being morally superior. Otherwise they wouldn’t spin such a ridiculous yarn.
Great piece; I am so frustrated that Democrats are falling into this trap. It’s one reason I’m nonpartisan.
