Ep 785 | Abortion Pill Ban? & NPR’s Accidentally Pro-Life Story Relatable with Allie Beth Stuckey

    • News Commentary

Today we're talking about a few stories related to abortion. First, NPR published a story about a Texas mom who couldn’t abort her baby (who was diagnosed with a fatal disorder) due to Texas’ abortion law, hoping to provoke sympathy for women who have to bring their pregnancies to term. Now the mother has claimed she cannot afford a funeral for the baby, who passed shortly after her birth. NPR appears to argue that it would have been better for the baby to have been dismembered than to be born and need a funeral. We explain why this ignores the absolute trauma of abortion, as well as the beautiful moment this baby got to see the face of her mother before she died. Then, U.S. District Judge Matthew Kacsmaryk issued a ruling which could stop the prescribing and distribution of mifepristone, one of two drugs used to perform abortions via pill, due to the FDA's flawed approval process. The opinion now waits for appeals from the Biden administration, but we discuss why this is a great win and could mean huge difficulties for getting abortions nationwide (as about half of abortions in the country are performed via pill). We also take a look at some of the drug's shady connections and why we should all be questioning its origins. We also offer some encouragement to be bold and stop looking for the approval of man when we face criticism for our faith.
