After the SCOTUS ruling over the Texas abortion regulations, the topic of abortion has been in the news again. One story that was particularly horrific that was buzzing on social media was the alleged comedian Chelsea Handler coming out about past abortions. And by coming out, I mean boldly boasting and bragging about the murder of two children; her own children. She wrote an essay usmagazine provided many
quotations from her essay which I would like to interact with.
They first quoted her first saying that,
“[She] wouldn’t be where she is today if she hadn’t had the right to choose.”
That’s exactly right, and neither would her 2two dead children. They too would be doing something, would be someone else, provided she had not had the “right” to murder them. I wonder who they would have been?
Handler is quoted as saying,
“Of course, the idea that I would have a child and raise it by myself at that age, when I couldn’t even find my way home at night, was ridiculous. My parents recognized that, so they acted like parents for one of the very first times in my life and took me to Planned Parenthood. I felt parented, ironically, while I was getting an abortion. And when it was over, I was relieved in every possible way.”
If the idea of having a child was ridiculous then she shouldn’t have had sex.
What a sad state of affairs this nation is in when a grown woman thinks that her parents were acting responsibly by murdering their grandchildren. That makes them the exact opposite of good parents; it makes them murderers. It makes them grandparents with dead grandchildren. That was without a doubt the worst decision Handler’s parents made in their parenting of Chelsea.
Handler seems to even subtly notice this, because she admits how “ironic” it is that she felt parented while doing the very worst thing a parent can possibly do. If only the children she murdered were able to be parented. If only they had parents that loved them instead of hated them. How convenient that Chelsea got to feel parented, yet as a parent, did not owe that to her own children. Those two kids will never feel parented; they are dead. Chelsea killed them.
“I had to scrape together the $230 to pay Planned Parenthood, but it was a safe abortion.”
$230 is disgustingly inexpensive. Most hit-men charge far more to kill innocent human beings, and I bet they up the price for children.
Chelsea also needs to realize that no practice with a %100 mortality rate is safe; that’s literally the most unsafe thing in the world. In the case of every single abortion, a baby dies, violently. That makes abortion more unsafe than cancer, car accidents, drunk driving, sky diving, swimming with sharks, literally anything. If I designed a roller coaster where one person died every single time it ran, no one would call that safe. A safe abortion is an oxymoron. It can’t exist. It’s too deadly and too violent.
“Getting unintentionally pregnant more than once is irresponsible, but it’s still necessary to make a thoughtful decision.”
I agree entirely. However, murdering children is never thoughtful; it’s always wicked.
“We all make mistakes all the time. I happened to f–k up twice at the age of 16. I’m grateful that I came to my senses and was able to get an abortion legally without risking my health or bankrupting myself or my family.”
I wonder if Chelsea’s two dead children are as thankful for their mother’s “senses.” I bet they are relieved! Thank goodness mom and grandpa don’t have to go bankrupt. It only cost them their lives.
“I’m 41 now, I don’t ever look back and think, ‘God, I wish I’d had that baby.'”
I don’t doubt this at all. However, apart from faith in Christ, she one day will.
US Magazine then quoted Handler as citing the 1973 Supreme Court ruling Roe v. Wade for allowing her to
“[L]ive life without an unplanned child born out of an unhealthy relationship.”
Ms. Handler didn’t need the Supreme Court for this. Perhaps she really doesn’t know, but it was not the Supreme Court who gave her this freedom: it was God and the founding fathers who did.
She had the freedom to stay out of unhealthy relationships without Roe; she had the freedom to not get pregnant without those judges. SCOTUS did not give her the freedom to live her life without an unplanned pregnancy from an unhealthy relationship, the Constitution did, and she chose to forfeit that right. She chose to ignore it. She chose to abuse it. Roe V Wade did not give her that freedom, they instead gave her the opportunity to murder the child which was the product of her dismissal of that freedom. They allowed her to legally and affordably kill the innocent baby that was produced after ignoring the reproductive rights she already had.
“It’s okay if you think it’s not right for women to have abortions — but it’s not your problem, because we decide.”
Handler has forgotten one thing: Mark 12:31. I am supposed to love my neighbor. Thus, the murder of my neighbor absolutely is my problem.
“We have 7.3 billion people on this planet…”
Yet, the entire world could live in Texas. Overpopulation is not a problem. Besides, if arbitrarily murdering people to prevent population growth, why babies? Why not senior citizens? Why not the Jews? Why not blacks? Why not middle-aged white actresses? Murdering those groups could help with the population.
As a side note, like most countries, America needs more babies.
“Anybody who carefully decides not to become a parent — let alone a bad parent, which is what I would have become — should be applauded for making a smart and sustainable decision.”
This is true, but this decision is made before becoming a parent.
As a side note, how does anybody who has murdered two of her own children claim to avoid becoming a “bad parent”? Is there anything worse a parent could do to a child besides kill it while it is in its most defenseless, innocent stage of life? Chelsea Handler became a bad parent when she murdered her babies. The Bad Parent ship has sailed. She is a bad parent already.
The good news for bad parents, for murderers, for all of us sinners, is that there is newness and forgiveness in Christ. Jesus died to save terrible parents.
“I’d love for somebody to try to tell me what to do with my body. I dare them.”
The good news is Handler proved what I wrote about previously: Abortion is not about abortion. It is not about women’s rights or politics at all, it’s about autonomy.
Handler’s comments here are the anthem of the current generation. She, with the nation, is at rebellion with God, and has tried to make herself her own god. The terrifying reality for her -and all others- is that God has told her what to do with her body. And she will answer to Him one day for it. He took her up on her dare a long time ago.
“‘I had an abortion when I was 16,’ she told The New York Times in 2011. ‘Because that’s what I should have done. Otherwise I would now have a 20-year-old kid.'”
At least she can do math. She knows she killed a person, and then she did it again. She recognizes the inevitable. Those children would grow up. They would be here today. They would have friends, stories, memories, passions, talents, desires, etc. Yes, she would now have have a 25 year old son or daughter. But, now their blood cries out from the ground with the other 60 million silent children who have also been sacrificed to the pagan god Autonomy.
