Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds recently signed into law the country’s most powerful law restricting abortion, a move that could potentially save thousands of lives across the state.
The law bans abortions if a heartbeat can be detected, making almost all abortions after six weeks of pregnancy 100 percent illegal.
While this is an amazing step in the right direction for protecting the lives of our most defenseless citizens, not everyone is thrilled by the law’s passage.
Jennifer Wright, a magazine editor for Harpers Bazaar took to Twitter to express her outrage with the law, sharing the hashtag #NotYourHandmaid.
What Wright wasn’t probably expecting was conservative powerhouse Ben Shapiro to strike back at her, which he did, completely annihilating her argument in less than 200 characters.
If you've had an abortion in America, now is the time to speak up, because we're about to lose our right to it. Tell your officials how many women that will impact #NotYourHandmaid https://t.co/95zKjPpzlb

Women are not anybody’s handmaids. They are their babies’ mothers. That is the entire issue. https://t.co/XEz54MXZLm

Shapiro wasn’t the only one who didn’t care much for Wright’s response:
If you’ve been murdered in the womb in America, speak up… oh, wait a minute.

I had an abortion when I was 16 and have regretted that decision everyday for 35 years. I can’t tell you the guilt I feel daily for that incredibly selfish choice. May god forgive me

Women worried they will lose their right to an abortion is like plantation owners worried they will lose their right to own slaves.

What people like Wright and other pro-abortion folks just don’t seem to grasp is that human life is precious, a valuable gift given by the Creator of the universe.
We as human beings have value because we are made in His image, we are eternal souls that exist the moment we are conceived, and this same Creator commands us to protect life, not to murder, which is precisely what abortion is. It’s the termination of a beautiful life created by the One who made us all.
If the left is concerned about unwanted pregnancies, perhaps they ought to pour more time, money, and energy into upholding the traditional view of marriage and support abstinence programs in schools, rather than attempting to normalize sexual deviancy in every form?
Just some food for thought.
