Yesterday, top leaders of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) and Society of Family Planning wrote an op-ed in The Washington Post calling for “honesty” in the abortion debate.
And they honestly expressed their support for abortion on demand, at any time, for any reason.
In the piece titled “If they want to win, Republicans need to go on offense on abortion,” Dannenfelser and Conway lay out a strong pro-life platform in contrast to the Democrat Party’s extremist views of abortion on demand.
The pair write:
Zahn and Villavicencio hit back and reinforced the extreme position of the Democrat Party, including abortion up to birth:
Ingrid Skop, M.D., F.A.C.O.G., a board-certified OB-GYN who has practiced in Texas for nearly 30 years and serves as vice president and director of medical affairs at Charlotte Lozier Institute responded saying:
“As an obstetrician for the last 30 years, I have advocated and cared for both of my patients—mothers and their unborn children. This brazen proclamation from ACOG, while sad to see, is reflective of a discouraging new reality: In ACOG’s leadership and the broader medical community, there’s no place for dissent on the issue of unlimited abortion for any reason, at any time in pregnancy.
“We are witnessing, in real time, a vocal, political takeover of a scientific community that represents the most honorable and beautiful profession, responsible for safely bringing new life into the world. I wish ACOG would realize that their promotion of elective abortion without limits isn’t reflective of the views of their own members, considering about 90% of practicing obstetricians will not perform an elective abortion.”
