Some women regret their abortions. Some women feel guilty about their abortions. Some women act as though they never had abortions. Some women, like Michelle Wolf, shout their abortions just to prove a crucial point: it doesn’ matter how much you wave around “Choose life” signs or Bible passages like Jeremiah 1:5. Some women who have abortions are just a little bit evil.
Writeup from The Washington Examiner:
“You can feel any way that you want after an abortion,” said 34-year-old writer and comedian Michelle Wolf. “Get one! See how you feel! You know how my abortion made me feel? Very powerful. You know how people say you can’t play God? I walked out of there being like, ‘Move over, Morgan Freeman. I am God!'”
Later in the special, Wolf further made light of abortion, saying it should be treated with all the gravity of a “gluten allergy” and that “you should be able to get an abortion for any reason you want.”
Couple of things for the bumbling morons in the back getting ready to have a good cry over the “final” Star Wars movie failing to live up to their galactic expectations: my criticism of Michelle Wolf isn’t a criticism of free speech or a comedian’s right to say or joke about whatever he or she wishes to joke about. That’s not how free speech works. Yes, you can say whatever you want. And then I can say whatever I want back.
So here it goes. I’m glad Michelle Wolf proclaimed that having an abortion made her feel as all-powerful as the God Almighty. Because it proves a point. Michelle just admitted she ended a life. God giveth and taketh away. What other conclusion are we to draw. Were the unborn child just a clump of tissue, or a gluten allergy, there would be no reason at all to walk out of an abortion appointment feeling God-like. You never leave a dentist appointment feeling like Jesus. You never leave your annual physical feeling like John the Baptist. I dunno, I’m trying to stick with the biblical theme here, work with me.
But freeing yourself of a child, making a huge life-ending decision, that would leave an evil woman feeling rather like what an evil person thinks of God.
Obviously God Himself wouldn’t feel anything other than grave sadness and likely anger at the meaningless, senseless loss of life. But again, Michelle Wolf probably wasn’t intending on taking her metaphor that far.
People like Michelle Wolf cannot be reasoned with. Her mind cannot be changed. Which isn’t to say we shouldn’t try to reason and change hearts and minds. We absolutely should. But while you’re praying for the end of abortion, while you’re praying for hearts and minds to be changed, understand that abortion needs to be defeated through legal action, through effective activism, and for seeing that some people, like Michelle Wolf, as the enemy to defeat.
