Hollywood types get too much attention. They’re actors. They entertain us (sometimes). Their opinions are no more important than the check-out person at the local supermarket.
Unfortunately, their public platform gives them a license to pontificate on subjects that the liberal media use to push a degrading agenda.
Actor Mark Ruffalo’s comments on abortion is the latest example. Ruffalo played the Hulk in Marvel’s Avengers film. Ruffalo tells how his mother was “forced” to have an illegal abortion before abortion was legalized by seven unelected men sitting distantly on what we call the Supreme Court. So far, abortion has resulted in the deaths of nearly 60 million preborn babies in the United States, 60 million people who don’t have an equal voice because they’re dead.
I find it ironic that Ruffalo, who was not aborted, gets to speak about how thankful he is that his mother had the fortitude — being her own “master” as he puts it — to kill her pre-born child. His dead sibling never got the chance to offer his or her opinion on the matter.
Freedom of choice is a popular catch phrase for the abortion crowd. But it doesn’t apply to the real victim. Ruffalo went on to write:
“It was a traumatizing thing for her. It was shameful and sleazy and demeaning. When I heard the story I was aghast by the lowliness of a society that would make a woman do that. I could not understand its lack of humanity; today is no different.”
I suspect that it was more traumatizing for the preborn baby who is not around today to to comment. Talk about a “lack of humanity.”
It gets worse, if that’s even possible:
“My own mother fought to make herself more than a possession; she lived her life as a mother who chose when she would have children, and a wife who could earn a living if she so chose.”
The baby wasn’t possessing her. It wasn’t the baby’s fault that she had sex that ended up in a pregnancy. Who’s the victim here?
Consider his next line: “she lived her life as a mother who chose when she would have children.” People choose not have children all the time, but once a child is part of the equation, then that choice stops. Maybe a mother decides that after her baby is born that she chooses she doesn’t want the child anymore because she wants to “earn a living.” Can she kill the child since a born child would be a decided inconvenience?
This is all easy for Ruffalo to say since he wasn’t the one aborted. His mother silenced the voice of his brother or sister. For abortionists and those who support it, choice is a one-way street.
