Contradiction And Hypocrisy Continue – But This Argument Will Leave You Speechless

After several state governments, like that of New York, have passed laws revoking all protections for the unborn, many others are saying, “enough is enough.”

Many state legislators are realizing that their constituents overwhelmingly disagree with the rampant murder of the unborn and are finally working to turn the tide.

There are always absurd arguments made by progressive elected officials in the name of “women’s rights,” but one, in particular, will leave you speechless.

Republican Governor Mike DeWine of Ohio has just signed into law legislation that bans abortion once a fetal heartbeat is detected.

Other states like Georgia have done the same, and many others are taking this legislation into consideration.

It is a win for the unborn and those who value the sanctity of life, but there is always a fight from the left.

Ohio state Representative Janine Boyd, a Democrat, made perhaps the most ridiculous argument against this life-saving legislation before it was passed.

Boyd, an African-American, introduced an amendment to the bill that would have created an exemption for African-American women, allowing them to abort their children after a heartbeat was detected.

Why?

Well, in an utterly unbelievable statement, she reasons that African-American women should not be forced to have unwanted children because of — slavery.

“I consider how many masters raped their slaves.  I consider how many masters forced their slaves to have abortions, and I consider how many pregnant slaves self-induced abortions so that they would not contribute children they had to this slave system… And so I ask you, with all of your values, to consider that and vote yes to this amendment,” argued Boyd in a speech on the House floor, according to the Ohio State House’s website for the 133rd General Assembly.

Yes, she actually believes that because enslaved women were raped and forced to have children born into slavery in the dark days of our nation that they should not be forced to have children they don’t want now.

It’s not only insane — her thoughts are completely racist and seemingly seek to oppress women of color because they were oppressed in the past.

The pro-life organization, Created Equal, posted this in response to Boyd’s twisted ideology:  “To reference owning humans as a defense of dismembering them is moral myopia.  If is wrong to own humans, it is also wrong to intentionally kill them,” as reported by Breitbart.

It is as if she is saying that African-American children are less deserving of protections and the right to life.

And that’s not all.

In a twist of hypocrisy and irony, Boyd and fellow Democrat Stephanie Howse have formed the first-ever “Black Maternal Health Caucus” in Ohio.

Its purpose?  A worthy one — to protect African-American mothers and children who have the highest abortion and infant mortality rates in the nation.

“Better lives and brighter futures begin with healthy moms and babies, but right now in Ohio, we’re failing our black mothers,” said Rep. Howse.

Boyd believes Ohio is failing to protect black babies.  She also believes black babies should be exempt from the protections of the Ohio heartbeat bill.

In Ohio, black infant mortality rates are up to three times as high as those of white infants.

Why then, in one breath, does Boyd state that African-American women should be granted special privileges for abortions, and in the next, state that Ohio should help protect African-American women and babies?

It boggles the mind that she thinks the two are not related.

She talks about a disparity between black and white women in maternal health outcomes.  Of course, there would be a disparity if black women were allowed to continue aborting their children in violation of the law.

On the heartbeat bill’s effect on black women, Boyd states,

“This political legislation threatens the health and economic security of Ohio’s women and families…”

On the creation of the Black Maternal Health Caucus, she says, “It is our responsibility as lawmakers to legislate opportunities that improve the lives of all women and families…“…we must focus our efforts where they’re needed most—in our black communities who see a real disparity in maternal health outcomes…”

Are we the only ones who are completely confused by what this woman stands for?  It is truly insane.

If Janine Boyd thinks she is somehow protecting African-American women and children, she is sadly mistaken.

You cannot have it both ways.  Our legislators – Democrat and Republican both – must protect all life, not just pick and choose which programs better suit their chances for re-election.

For now, Ohio becomes the latest state to pass a life-saving heartbeat bill, despite legislators like Boyd who don’t seem to know what they really believe.
