In a statement following the Supreme Court’s decision overturning Roe v. Wade, former First Lady Michelle Obama lamented that she is “heartbroken” over the “horrifying” reversal.
“I am heartbroken for people around this country who just lost the fundamental right to make informed decisions about their own bodies,” she continued, ignoring the fact that an unborn child is not the mother’s “own” body. “This is what our mothers and grandmothers and great-grandmothers lived through, and now here we are again.”
The woman who once complained that she was never proud of America until her husband was elected President went on to express how “heartbroken” she is for the hypothetical teenage girl “full of zest and promise who won’t be able to finish school or live the life she wants because her state controls her reproductive decisions.”
That girl’s “reproductive decision” was her choice to have sex and risk getting pregnant. That was her choice.
Michelle O also called on activists to get involved with pro-infanticide organizations such as Planned Parenthood. “Our hearts may be broke today, but tomorrow, we’ve got to get up and find the courage to keep working toward creating the more just America we all deserve.”
An America that does not grant people the constitutional right to murder inconvenient children is a more just America.
