Fox News’ Laura Ingraham launched an attack on Planned Parenthood on her show Tuesday evening. Ingraham accused Democrats of supporting the deaths of children by opposing a Republican bill on so-called infanticide. Democrats opposed the bill because they saw it as an attempt to limit women’s access to abortion and because laws are already in place to deal with the real issues raised by the bill.
Ingraham wasn’t interested in the details of the bill and decided to continue the recent narrative that Democrats are in favor of infanticide.
“Every one of the announced 2020 presidential Democratic candidates voted no. Senators Gillibrand, Booker, Harris, Klobuchar, Warren and Bernie Sanders voted to support the wanton extermination of children already born. Along with Planned Parenthood, they claim that the bill would limit reproductive rights,” Ingraham said,
She then showed a clip of Senator Patty Murray criticizing the bill as an attempt to limit women’s access to reproductive healthcare and calling the bill ‘anti-woman’ and ‘anti-family.’
“Nice try, Patty,” Ingraham said. “Family usually requires a child and infanticide usually requires the taking of a child’s life, doesn’t it? And what Murray didn’t mention is that she and her party’s opposition to this common sense bill, is itself anti-science. We have a viable child that has been born. In what way is an anti-woman or anti-family to protect the life of that child? It’s craziness.”
Ingraham quoted tweets from President Donald Trump before going on to discuss the left’s ‘dark evangelism’.
“But my friends, once a party embraces this nihilism, this dark religion by treating abortion like a sacrament, all reason goes out the window. What happened to safe, legal and rare? Their unwavering defense of abortion on demand, even if it leads to infanticide or — let’s say the embrace of other issues like gender fluidity. Even if that leads to rank unfairness, we’re going to get to that issue later on in the show. It’s akin to a secular Sharia law among the left. You deviate from what the social justice warriors stipulate today and they will decapitate you in the workplace and in school if they have their way. These people are fanatics, they’re zealots, hell-bent on a complete upending of the social order, and upending of just about everything that embodies or even comes close to embodying tradition.”
Ingraham showed a clip of feminist Gloria Steinem, who had compared Republican tactics to Hitler, according to Ingraham.
“Well I’m afraid Gloria is getting a bit dotty in her old age. She’s essentially arguing that in order to save humanity, you have to kill off more humans. And notice how Steinem practices the art of self-projection? Hitler, just like Planned Parenthood, practiced and defended mass extermination all in the name of racial purity.”
Ingraham then attacked reproductive rights campaigner Margaret Sanger, a popular right-wing boogeyman in the abortion issue.
