Pro-lifer hits back over pro-abortion message

Say no to abortionA billboard campaign launched by angry abortion supporters in New Mexico is making outrageous claims.

“Rape is about power and control. So are abortion bans,” reads the billboard message from liberal group ProgressNow.

Tara Shaver of Abortion Free New Mexico tells OneNewsNow it is interesting to watch abortion supporters equate the pro-life cause with rape, and miss the point entirely, she says.

“Yes, rape is about power and control,” Shaver observes. “But so is abortion.”

Abortion represents the “ultimate form” of power and control, she says, because a woman is able to use her power to the point of killing an unborn baby.

New Mexico is famously a pro-abortion state, where lawmakers last year considered a bill that would have removed a law allowing a fourth degree felony against an abortionist.

According to Shaver, abortion supporters became “completely unhinged” when they didn’t have the votes to introduce the bill.
