Bette Midler’s pro-abortion no-sex pledge sums things up really well.
“I suggest that all women refuse to have sex with men until they are guaranteed the right to choose by Congress,” Midler said on Twitter while responding to the Supreme Court’s 5-4 vote to deny an emergency request to block the Texas law, deemed by critics as the most restrictive abortion legislation in the country.
First, if pro-abortion women stop having sex, then the problem of abortion is largely solved. See, in almost all cases, women can choose not to do that which produces children if they aren’t willing to give birth to them when they’re conceived.
But second, note the logical consequence of Midler’s position. Withholding sex for abortion policy implies that sex — and, therefore, abortion — is primarily for the benefit of men.
