Lack of reason on display

New Mexico flagAbortion supporters in New Mexico are actually making the pro-life movement look good.

LifeNews reports that a far-left group in New Mexico has posted a billboard near Albuquerque claiming that "rape is about power and control and so are abortion bans," suggesting laws protecting the lives of preborn children are similar to the violent act of rape. Tara Shaver of Abortion Free New Mexico disagrees with that comparison.

"The progressive pro-abortion liberals they think that this type of language resonates with New Mexicans, but it doesn't," she asserts. "New Mexico is a state that values families; it values children, and so this messaging just doesn't resonate with the average person in New Mexico whatsoever. It really only resonates with those who champion abortion."

Shaver

Since this is an election year, candidates on the left are fighting against any thinking that might cost them votes. Nevertheless, Shaver's organization will continue on track with its goal – "an abortion-free state where every child is protected and valued."

"The type of rhetoric that the pro-abortion community is trying to use right now is just not going to help them at all," the pro-lifer continues. "It just makes them seem more radical, and it makes us look more reasonable."

She adds that anyone who wants to fight for human rights should fight against abortion, because it is a violent act against a tiny, defenseless human being.
