It’s no secret that the pro-abortion lobby lies.
They will say and do anything to promote their anti-life agenda.
But this pro-abortion activist went beyond the pale by lying 14 times in under an hour and the reason why will infuriate you.
A recent televised debate over Ohio’s Issue 1, which would create a constitutional “right” to abortion-on-demand until birth saw a pro-abortion activist tell more than a dozen lies in under an hour.
They don’t respect life so it’s no wonder they don’t respect the truth
The debate, which was recorded on October 11, was hosted by the Ohio Debate Commission and the Columbus Dispatch, Cincinnati Enquirer, and Spectrum News.
The debate was supposed to give representatives from both sides of the issue the chance to engage in a moderated, respectful exchange of views on the life and death issue.
But it all fell apart as the pro-abortion activist began her long list of lies.
Desiree Tims, the spokeswoman for Issue 1, “lied 14 times about the ability of women to receive life-saving care under Ohio’s protective laws, which limit painful late-term abortions and abortions when a baby’s heartbeat is detected,” according to SBA Pro-Life America.
The group went on to criticize the pro-abortion activist for “falsely claiming that women cannot receive miscarriage care and must flee the state or endanger their lives should they have a pregnancy complication.”
And the criticism was fully warranted.
Tims, a former aide to Democrat U.S. Senators Kirsten Gillibrand (NY) and Sherrod Brown (OH) falsely claimed, “Unfortunately, right now we have an extreme abortion ban law on the books … with no exceptions for rape, incest, or the life of the mother.”
“Six weeks — you cannot access abortion care after that,” lied Tims, who leads Innovation Ohio, which calls itself “Ohio’s Progressive Politics and Policy Hub.”
The truth is evident but abortion activists don’t care
The truth is completely different than Tims would have everyone believe.
Ohio’s six-week Heartbeat Law, which does in fact contain exceptions for the life of the mother, is suspended while under review by the Ohio Supreme Court.
That means state law reverted its pre-Dobbs status quo of 22 weeks with exceptions.
“We have a 22-week ban today, and there are exceptions,” corrected pro-life activist Mehet Cooke, an Indian-born Republican attorney, political strategist, and Newsmax commentator who served as spokeswoman for Protect Women Ohio at the debate.
“The ACLU is peddling misinformation about contraception, which is available in Ohio; [about] miscarriage care, which is available,” said Cooke. “Anyone who says we don’t have access to contraception, [care for] miscarriages, or abortion at 22 weeks is flat-out lying to Ohioans.”
Tims tried to claim her assertions were accurate, because “pro-life politicians all across the country have introduced legislation that bans or restricts birth control.”
Her reference was about bills that would ban chemical abortions drugs.
Tims then claimed, with absolutely no evidence that unnamed Ohio legislators expressed “a fond interest” in banning “miscarriage care.”
Of course, the debate’s moderators did not pursue the clear lies by Tims.
“Every pro-life law in the country allows necessary and timely medical treatment to save the life of a pregnant woman in an emergency,” said Kelsey Pritchard, a spokeswoman for Protect Women Ohio Action.
“Pro-abortion activists in Ohio are spreading shameless misinformation about the 22-week and heartbeat laws, causing confusion amongst the public that puts women’s lives at risk.”
“This amendment allows for full-term, late-term abortion, partial-birth abortion,” said Cooke, who said Issue 1 should be opposed by anyone who supports reasonable limits on abortion, whether they consider themselves “pro-life, pro-choice, or somewhere in-between.”
As the vote on Issue 1 gets closer, pro-lifers around the nation are watching, and learning just how far pro-abortion activists will go to promote abortion.
