Ryan Bomberger: “It’s way past time to unshackle the public from the lie that the violence of abortion is ‘freedom’ and ‘equality’”
October 24, 2022
WASHINGTON D.C. —When the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade with theDobbs v. Jackson ruling earlier this year, it quickly rose to one of the top three voting issues for the upcoming mid-term elections. Americans on both sides of the issue are more motivated to vote this year, particularly in the states where the fate of abortion laws will be decided.
Ryan Bomberger, chief creative officer and co-founder of The Radiance Foundation (Radiance, www.radiance.life), is a pro-life leader, adoptee, and adoptive father of mixed lineage (Black/White). As a columnist, author and international public speaker, he is passionately calling out pro-abortion activists and politicians for their undying support for abortion as the U.S. nears mid-term elections.
“It’s way past time to unshackle the public from the lie that the violence of abortion is ‘freedom’ and ‘equality’. The pro-abortion Left and the abortion industry are responsible for the commercialized killing of over 64 million unrepeatable human beings,” Bomberger stated. “Since the Dobbs decision was released, the Left has become even more unhinged. The amount of mental and rhetorical contortions one must go through to justify killing the innocent is astounding. And Planned Parenthood is leading the charge. Unsurprisingly, the activist arm of the Democrat Party is throwing every absurd charge of racism it possibly can at the pro-life movement. You know, the same movement that fights to save every human life regardless of color? The mere fact that Planned Parenthood now calls itself an anti-racist organization when it’s the leading killer of black lives would be funny if it weren’t so fatal.”
Bomberger explained, “In Planned Parenthood versus Casey, the right of ‘reliance’ was conjured by the Supreme Court. The majority opinion opined that women, over decades since Roe, have formed a ‘reliance on the availability of abortion in the event that contraception should fail.’ The three dissenting justices in Dobbs (Breyer, Kagan and Sotomayor) explained: ‘When Roe and Casey disappear, the loss of power, control, and dignity will be immense.’ Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen claimed (without evidence) that ending Roe ‘would have very damaging effects on the economy and would set women back decades.’
“Pro-slavery politicians thought the exact same thing, fearing the end of slavery. John C. Calhoun, a Democratic Senator from South Carolina, said: ‘Be it good or bad, [slavery] has grown up with our society and institutions and is so interwoven with them that to destroy it would be to destroy us as a people.’
“The same political party that went to war to protect slavery has announced, through its surrogates, that it will be ungovernable during its ‘Summer of Rage.’ President Joe Biden, who once said that Roe ‘went too far,’ sadly hyperbolized that the overturning of Roe ‘set us back 150 years.’”
As someone conceived in rape but adopted in love, Bomberger argued, “Today’s reproductive justice activists claim bodily autonomy is everything and that our humanity is second. No one is going to care about your body if you aren’t regarded as human. Your body has no ‘rights’ when you’re viewed as property. Slavery was the denial of personhood, refusing to recognize that every person is a human, and every human is a person. Throughout history, heinous treatment of fellow human beings wasn’t the result of failing to see they had ‘rights over their bodies’ but that those some bodies had no inherent right to live. Slavery and abortion are the same wrongs, different century.
“Abortion causes American society to turn its back on the most marginalized and accept the status quo. A remnant, though, refuses to be silenced or intimidated. We love the most marginalized and fight peacefully to abolish this evil so that ‘created equal’ applies to every member of the human family.”
