Ryan Bomberger: ‘We Look Forward to the Day When Abortion’s Violent Dehumanization Against Mothers and Their Unborn Children is Ended’
September 20, 2021
WASHINGTON D.C. — In the wake of the recent Texas abortion mandate (SB8) which bans abortions six weeks after conception, other states are beginning to follow suit, with the most recent being Mississippi. Previously, the state of Mississippi attempted to enact a 15-week abortion ban but was shut down by the pro-abortion agenda. After the approval of SB8, however, Mississippi is attempting to reinstate the proposed 15-week abortion ban. Abortion providers across the country as well as within the state, including the infamous Jackson Women’s Health Organization, which is the only operating abortion clinic in Mississippi, are urging the Supreme Court to reject Mississippi’s bid, claiming that if the ruling is approved, it would “invite states to ban abortion entirely.”
For Ryan Bomberger, CCO and co-founder of The Radiance Foundation (Radiance, www.theradiancefoundation.org), banning abortion entirely is exactly his goal. Determined to raise awareness of the realities of abortion, race relations, adoption, and other urgent issues, Bomberger argues against the brutality of abortion. “Violence against those deemed less than human is nothing new. Same wrong, different century,” Bomberger stated. “We show the strength of our humanity when we protect the weakest among us. I was conceived in rape yet adopted in love. I was temporarily in foster care, like many of my siblings. Today, I’m an adoptive father. I was not better off dead. My adopted children were not better off dead. To those fighting to protect the violence of abortion: there’s a difference between being empowered and being fooled by those in power. The Radiance Foundation stands with Mississippi in its efforts to protect the most basic human right: life.”
Mississippi, as well as other overwhelmingly pro-life states, has already told the court it should overrule its 1973 decision in Roe v. Wade that established a nationwide right to abortion. Abortion providers have responded that the right to an abortion is essential for the freedom for women, saying, “The very essence of a constitutional right is that the government cannot outright prohibit a certain subset of people, no matter how small, from exercising that right.”
Bomberger explained, “Roe v. Wade never empowered women; it empowered men to have sex and run. Fatherless families create vulnerable communities which are, in turn, devastated by the consequences of father absence: higher poverty rates, higher crime rates, higher drug usage, higher abortion rates, higher school dropouts, higher incarceration rates. And a man who wants to stay, protect and provide for the life he’s helped to co-create can’t legally stop his child from being dismembered in the name of ‘choice.’ Other men (aka the mostly male abortionists) have more power over the life of his child than he does.
“I applaud the direction states such as Texas and Mississippi are heading, and we look forward to the day when abortion’s violent dehumanization against mothers and their unborn children is ended.”
