Stacey Abrams says she supports abortion ‘up until the time of birth’ under some circumstances

Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams admitted during an appearance this week on “The View” that she’s against “arbitrary” time-related abortion restrictions, including restrictions barring abortions right before birth.

In other words, she finally admitted that she’s OK with abortion up to birth, or at least when a woman’s life is allegedly on the line.

“I believe that abortion is a medical decision, not a political decision, and arbitrary, politically defined timelines are deeply problematic because they ignore the reality of medical and physiological issues. For example, a six-week ban tells women they have to make reproductive choices before they know they’re pregnant,” she said.

“And that arbitrariness extends into these artificial timelines. What I believe is that it’s a decision that should be made between a woman and her doctor, that viability is the metric, and that if a woman’s health or life is in danger, then viability extends until the time of birth,” she added.

Continuing her remarks, the far-left Democrat then claimed that abortion isn’t something that’s taken lightly by women.

“Women do not make this choice lightly. There is no example of a woman — you’ve gone through the trouble of buying a crib and naming that child — there is no one who wakes up and says at eight months, never mind,” she said.

But this isn’t true. There are numerous examples of women — leftist women, to be exact — celebrating their abortions. There are even examples of women wishing they could have an abortion just to say they’d had one.

In fact, there’s even a related movement called “Shout Your Abortion” whose goal is to “normalize abortion.”

“Shout Your Abortion is normalizing abortion and elevating safe paths to access, regardless of legality. SYA makes resources, campaigns, and media intended to arm existing activists, create new ones, and foster collective participation in abortion access all over the country,” the movement’s website states.

Concluding her remarks, Abrams reiterated her belief that politicians, despite being elected to office by the people, should have no say over abortion.

“It is usually a traumatic experience, a difficult if not heart-wrenching decision, and to minimize it by allowing politicians to tell you what you are doing and what you are feeling when the doctor that delivers this news to you should be the arbiter, along with the woman who has to make that choice, that is my issue,” she said.

“So I don’t think there’s anyone who says there should not be a limit, but the limit should not be made by politicians who don’t understand basic biology or apparently basic morality. That’s my issue.”

Abrams is currently vying for incumbent Gov. Brian Kemp’s seat. However, Kemp has and continues to trounce her in the polls. As of Saturday afternoon, he held an average 5.3 percentage point lead over her, according to RealClearPolitics.

Interestingly, she wasn’t always pro-abortion. A profile published by The New York Times last month revealed that she used to be pro-life. What inspired her to switch her views? The thirst for money and power, it appears.

“Ms. Abrams considered herself opposed to abortion rights after college and as she went through law school. She only shifted her views, she said, when she began to think about running for office,” the Times piece reads.

“At 30, as a deputy city attorney, she interviewed for a position on the board of directors for the Georgia WIN List, a political action committee that backs women candidates who support abortion access. When she applied, Ms. Abrams disclosed that she was unsure of what her views of abortion were, she said. She had reservations about calling herself ‘pro-choice,’ she said,” the piece continues.

“Melita Easters, founder and executive director of the Georgia WIN List, said she remembered Ms. Abrams’s uncertainty, saying ‘The Stacey who served on the Georgia WIN List board is not the same Stacey who has evolved into someone who commands the presence of a room and speaks with such great eloquence.'”

And she’s someone who earns boatloads of money.

Whereas she was reportedly worth only about $100,000 when she first ran for governor in 2018, as of last spring she was worth millions.

“Abrams now says she’s worth $3.17 million, according to state disclosures filed in March. That’s compared with a net worth of $109,000 when she first ran four years ago. Her rapid ascent into millionaire status corresponds with her rise in national politics. Since her 2018 defeat to Republican Brian Kemp, Abrams has become a leading voting rights activist,” the Associated Press reported at the time.

“She was considered as a potential running mate to President Joe Biden and is widely credited with organizing voters in Georgia to help him become the first Democrat to carry the state in the presidential vote in 28 years. Along the way, she has earned $6 million, mostly driven by $5 million in payments for books and speeches.”
