A conservative Liberal politician from South Australia, Senator Cory Bernardi, is reported to have labelled the pro-choice movement as pro-death and labels abortion a death industry in his new book The Conservative Revolution.
Senator Bernardi has written that women use abortion “as an abhorrent form of birth control.”
In addition to abortions, his new book includes the green movement, Islam, any sort of non-traditional family structure, gay and lesbian people, surrogacy, and groups that run breakfast clubs in schools (lol, wut?) as part of a what he refers to as a “morbid new world” being created by the left.
The outrage is strong about his new comments and in particular his thinking about women and the choices they make about their bodies and their health.
But, here’s the thing about Cory Bernardi and others of his way of thinking – to have the values they hold, they must not have a lot of faith in humanity.
Cory Bernardi seems to think that because women have access to abortions that they’ll be off to have them all the time.
Who thinks like that?
