Michelle Williams Pro-Abortion Golden Globes Speech is a Slap in the Face to Brave Women Everywhere
The pro-abortion crowd won as soon as they labeled abortion "a woman's choice." Not only was the sting of child murder washed away, but in its place rose a heralding cry to women everywhere who believe their very genitilia made them instant victims forever fighting those who identify as men. Reflecting this sentiment perfectly was actress Michelle Williams who, even after being warned by Ricky Gervais to STFU with the political lectures, proclaimed how glad she was for a woman's right to choose. Abortion. She killed a kid to write the life she wanted. Watch.
Let me first acknowledge something a lot of people would rather not: it is far easier for a woman to advance in a career if a career is her main focus. Sorry, but it's true. Children are a lot of work, and a lot of that work usually falls to she who births the babe. Women who have other ideas in mind for their lives that do not include spit-ups, burping, making costumes for school plays, and buying Honda Odysseys to adorn with back windshield stick figures will tell you, in private perhaps, that kids put a dent in their plans. Not that they still don't love their children -- do not misunderstand -- but that children come first and everything else is a distant second. As it should be.
However, one needn't snuff a child if one has other ideas in mind for her life that do not include using that little suction tool to draw boogers from baby nostrils. It's called adoption. A woman can give her child to parents who are better able to raise the child she doesn't want for [whatever reason she has]. Adoption is also a choice, and it is a far braver one to nurture a child, give it what it needs for the first nine months of its existence, then make the heartbreaking but ultimately selfless act of love to give that baby to people who will love it like crazy forever.
What Williams just admitted was she was a coward, wrapped deceptively in a speech about how much of a trailblazer she thinks she is. But she wasn't brave enough to get to form a connection with a baby growing inside her, knowing she'd deliver it, look into the baby's eyes, then hand it to people who would give it the kind of life she could or would not. That's what real bravery and love looks like, but it was far easier for Williams to pee on a stick, walk into a clinic, and suck a child out of her womb so that she could live as she wished.
Women every day make good and bad choices. That's part of being human. A good choice is taking responsibility for one's actions by amending plans and accommodating the new life brought into existence, whether intended or not. Good women make this choice every day. Good, brave women alter their life plans for their children, who didn't ask to be conceived, who didn't choose their parents. Good, brave women can (and do) still put their children first even if what they want is a life without children.
Michelle Williams is as much a trailblazer as Jeffrey Dahmer was a culinary adventurer. She shouldn't be celebrated, applauded, or even given sympathy. We should instead celebrate women who made the right choice to put their children first by ensuring their children have their own lives.
