Pro-Abortionists’ Default Position: Censorship

by | May 4, 2012

United Kingdom Education Secretary Michael Gove

You can always tell when you hit the abortion advocate’s sore spot because that’s when they try to censor what you say.

A coalition, “coordinated” by the British Humanist Association and Education For Choice  and including the International Planned Parenthood Federation, has sent a letter to the United Kingdom Education Secretary Michael Gove to ask that he “issues guidance to prevent groups making false claims” about abortion.

The letter mentions three organizations, but the primary target is clearly the Society for the Protection of Unborn Children (SPUC), which is highly effective. The letter accuses SPUC of making a “false” claim that there is a  link between induced abortion and an increased risk of breast cancer (the ABC link), and that there is  “post abortion trauma.” The letter goes further, denying “that abortion causes more distress for women than carrying an unintended pregnancy to term.”

The letter unconvincingly asserts it is “not the anti-abortion ideology of these groups that we are challenging. What prompts this letter are issues of fact: many of the claims these groups make are simply false.”

Children, the letter continues, must be “protected from inappropriate teaching materials and all state-funded schools must have regard to this guidance. This must surely include preventing materials that present false claims.” The remedy? To “issue guidance to prevent lessons which can cause harm to young people,” meaning “No group should be permitted to make claims for which there is no evidence.”

Of course, there is a gigantic difference between, on the one hand, a dispute over whether the ABC link exists, and whether women suffer emotional and physical and psychological affects following their abortion and, on the other hand, saying that even to make these claims is equivalent to someone who is giving a talk about geography “claiming that the earth is flat.”

The former is (or at least can be) a civilized debate over evidence, the latter is a smear campaign in which pro-abortionists attempt to enlist the state to win by force what they cannot attain by reason.

There are mountains of evidence demonstrating the ABC link and that there is an negative aftermath for women who’ve aborted. Pro-abortionists, who rule the Academy and exercise hegemony in many governmental agencies, simply deny their existence or dismiss their conclusions.

By way of giving readers background evidence for both, we’re including the most recent NRL News Today stories.
