She’s At It Again – Celebrity’s Comments Prove She Just Doesn’t Get It

Wealthy Hollywood celebrities always seem to stand on their soapbox claiming to relate to everyday working Americans.

Often, they campaign for issues that affect ordinary Americans, all the while living in their protected bubble and unable to relate to what the rest of us really think.

Celebrities often preach a message that is hypocritical, and one of them tops the list of the worst offenders.

Oprah Winfrey lives a lavish lifestyle and carries herself with an air of authority and superiority.

She is one of the Hollywood elites, and though she makes all sorts of claims about deserving to be where she is, she seems to forget where she came from.

Winfrey grew up in extreme poverty in Mississippi but flaunts her wealth and material possessions at every turn.

But perhaps her greatest hypocrisy is her rabid support of abortion.

She has campaigned for candidates who vow to protect abortion “rights” in the U.S., most recently staunch advocate Stacey Abrams of Georgia in the 2016 gubernatorial race.  Republican Brian Kemp ultimately took the race.

This past election year, Oprah was everywhere fighting to preserve the legality of murdering unborn children, even celebrating a vile movement called “Shout Your Abortion” with a spread in the Inspiration section of last summer’s O Magazine.

Late last year, however, Oprah shared the tearful experience of saying goodbye to her own dying mother and shared a shocking story.

Vernita Lee died at age 83 on Thanksgiving Day, and she and her daughter spent many of her last days in deep conversation.

Oprah thanked her mother for choosing life for her and her sisters when she decided against abortion at age 18 while pregnant and living in the depths of poverty in the deep South.

People Magazine quoted Oprah’s recollection of the goodbye:

“What I said was, ‘Thank you. Thank you, because I know it’s been hard for you. It was hard for you as a young girl having a baby, in Mississippi. No education. No training. No skills. Seventeen, you get pregnant with this baby. Lots of people would have told you to give that baby away. Lots of people would’ve told you to abort that baby. You didn’t do that. I know that was hard. I want you to know that no matter what, I know that you always did the best you knew how to do. And look how it turned out.’”

The hypocrisy and irony are hard to overlook here.

Oprah has spent her adult life as a mouthpiece for the progressive agenda, especially in advocating for abortion.

She seems to think that women should not have to suffer the “inconveniences” experienced by her own mother in having four children as a single parent and one of the working poor.

Vernita Lee, however, must have seen it differently.  She worked as a maid and provided everything she could to her first three children.

And when she got pregnant a fourth time and did not feel she could offer her daughter what she deserved, she still chose life and gave her up for adoption.

Oprah was unaware of the existence of her sister, Patricia, until adulthood, and Vernita Lee and the family got a chance to meet her, spend time, and heal past wounds.

And yet Oprah Winfrey still doesn’t believe that every child should be given the same rights that were afforded her sisters and herself – the right to live to experience all the opportunities that life has to offer.

Lee once told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that she was “ashamed” of giving Patricia up for adoption because she could not take care of her.

I thought it was a terrible thing for me to do,” Lee said, as reported by Life News.

Lee’s gift of life to her children is something that may have been surrounded by difficult circumstances, but she made sacrifices and put her children first because that was the right thing to do.

While saying goodbye to their mother, Oprah told People: “In that moment, my sister was in the room. My mother’s had real problems since my sister came back from the adoption. My sister said, ‘Please forgive yourself, because I’ve forgiven you for giving me away.”

There’s no doubt that Oprah and her siblings are all thankful to be alive, just like millions of other adults whose mothers chose life over abortion.

Whether they raised their children themselves or gave them up for adoption, Oprah is at least right about one thing.  “It was just really sacred and beautiful,” she said in the interview.

When Oprah thanked her mother and said, “look how it turned out,” she should have taken her own words to heart.

Every child deserves a chance to live.  Each life has its own unique and beautiful God-given potential, and it is God alone who has the right to decide life and death.

Oprah Winfrey showed her true colors in the interview about her mother’s death.

Did she share the story for her own personal gain – to make herself look like the loving daughter?

Or does she really not understand her contradictory and hypocritical outlook on the right to life?

Oprah has previously commented in her magazine that she was “relieved” to miscarry her own child when she got pregnant at age 17.

She seems to have completely missed the message that was the core of her mother’s life and the lessons it should have taught her children.

What do you think of Oprah Winfrey’s hypocrisy in publicly sharing that she thanked her mother for choosing life for her, while rabidly defending abortion “rights” in this country?
