As if the wheels had not already fallen off the abortion-on-demand bus, things managed to get even worse the last few days for those voices demanding a right to legal feticide.
No, it wasn't the continued presence of the single largest protest march now entering its 49th year, nor the heightened sense of anticipation that this may be the year the U.S. Supreme Court finally corrects the grave moral injustice it perpetrated in 1973's Roe v. Wade case.
And no, it wasn't the buffoonish remark made by the political activist who calls himself "Reverend" for clout:
Warnock didn't expound upon why he, as a lawmaker, bizarrely thought there was no room in a doctor's office for the state's law against murdering another human being. Nor did he explain how as a vaccine mandate politician, he could cram government into a doctor's lab, but didn't think it could squeeze into an abortionist's office.
No, the real embarrassment happened in Oklahoma, where a 32-year-old Democrat named Forrest Bennett demonstrated in living color how little pro-abortion progressives understand pro-life Americans. Proving he's spent way too much time learning about the pro-life movement from liberal memes, Bennett sponsored a piece of legislation that he hoped would expose how the effort to end abortion was really just the patriarchy sticking it to women:
The bill was embraced and hailed as a great move…by pro-life conservatives. Republican State Representative Josh West, the majority leader, announced immediately,
"I'll be assigning bills tomorrow morning. I'm going to make sure this bill gets a hearing. Who knew Forrest was such a champion for pro life?"
LifeNews.com thanked Bennett "for confirming that a baby's [life] begins at conception, and so does the responsibility of parents."
The pro-life accolades became so overwhelming and effusive that Bennett felt obligated to issue a 16-tweet mea culpa to leftists furious with him for letting the world see that despite their professed concern for the well-being of women, the pro-choice movement is motivated by something far more sinister.
Regardless of what happens with the upcoming Supreme Court decision in Dobbs, this entire episode is incredibly instructive for us moving forward. This progressive lawmaker wrote a bill saying that fathers had to support their unborn children from the moment of conception. The bill would unquestionably help mothers, relieving a significant amount of financial stress they feel over any unplanned pregnancy. But apparently, fearing that such assistance might lead more women to choose not to abort, the Left furiously demanded he retract the bill. A thoughtful person will look at that and ask themselves what it is that the left really values – choice or abortion?
Bennett's bill did nothing to limit abortion, but rather make a woman's choice to keep her child more financially feasible. The Right applauded it; the Left freaked out. What does that say about who is married to ideology over the good of the woman?
If nothing else, this should put conservatives and independents on notice that if the court does overturn Roe, the Left will offer no assistance in helping develop programs, providing financial assistance, or creating an environment that helps women and their babies thrive. A far-too predominant mindset on the Left is that abortion is a necessity, and anything that fights against that narrative must be defeated.
In a post-Roe world, as unthinkable as it is for any group of people who masquerade as defenders of women, the Left will almost undoubtedly work to create or sustain difficult situations for women in crisis pregnancies. They will crave those situations in order to publicize and exploit them as proof of a "need" for the return of legalized child killing.
It will be grotesque, ghoulish, and macabre, but if you have any doubt progressives will gleefully prioritize abortion over the well-being of women and children, just have a look at Forrest Bennett's Twitter timeline.
