It certainly is ironic how the left claims to care so much about the lives of undocumented immigrants, and yet they’re appalled at the idea of actually preserving the lives of babies inside the wombs of undocumented immigrants.
Well, the Trump administration, after being blocked from barring undocumented immigrant minors from obtaining abortions last year, has instead sent information on adoption and pro-life crisis pregnancy centers to shelters serving undocumented immigrants.
“In March, Judge Tanya Chutkan of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia said the Office of Refugee Resettlement cannot prevent an illegal immigrant minor from obtaining an abortion,” the Christian Post reports.
While the ORR is required to inform minors of their right to abortion, the Texas Observer reported Monday that they sent an email out on April 20th ordering shelters across the country to post a notice saying the agency will “provide prenatal and medical care” or assist with adoption planning, along with contact information for three pro-life pregnancy centers.
“The shelters also have to provide a pro-life brochure titled “A Woman’s Right to Know,” which among other things provides information on the link between abortion and breast cancer,” the Christian Post adds.
This is certainly a great victory for life, and also a reinforcement of the fact that to oppose mass undocumented immigration is to no way devalue the lives of those who enter or remain in our country illegally.
Just because a child’s mother does not have a legal right to live in a country does in no way mean she and her child don’t have a sacred, divine right to life.
Of course, this is not how the left sees it. They don’t value their lives, they use them as political props to advocate for open borders and normalize the termination of human life in the womb.
An attorney for the ACLU’s Reproductive Freedom Project, Megan Burrows, lamented the news of the notice and the brochure and called them “blatant attempts to undermine the court’s order to stop interfering with immigrant minors’ reproductive rights.”
“And because ORR is requiring shelters to provide the brochure nationwide, it is misleading all minors in its custody to believe that they are subject to the extremely restrictive abortion laws in Texas, including a 24-hour waiting period and sonogram requirements,” she added.
She is blatantly stating that making a young girl aware that there are options other than the barbarism of abortion is a restriction on the rights of this young girl…and she’s ignoring completely the rights of the child.
