The pro-life group and news outlet Live Action released a satirical video highlighting the “selfish” motivations held by some “pro-choice” men who support the unfettered right of a woman to have an abortion.
“Our new satire video highlights the truth — abortion primarily benefits selfish, childish men and fuels the abuse of women and the deaths of children,” the video description on YouTube reads.
In the three-minute video published on Dec. 10, several “pro-choice” men explain why they support a woman’s right to abortion, or rather, their “right” to sleep around, get women pregnant, and avoid the responsibilities of fatherhood.
“Abortion rights are pro-choice men’s rights,” says one of the fake feminist men in the video. “I deserve to be free from any responsibility for some girl I get pregnant.”
Another “pro-choice” man wearing a “Her Body, Her Problem” T-shirt says, “I deserve to enjoy sex without commitment, marriage, or parenthood.”
“It’s ridiculous to think that just because I’m the father, I’m expected to be a dad,” adds another.
“And look, I’m a caring guy,” says a fourth. “If I get a girl pregnant and then abandon her, I don’t want to leave her alone with a kid.”
Each man wears a shirt with a different slogan that satirizes the pro-choice position. One reads, “NOT Dad Material.” Another says, “Pregnant Women Aren’t Women,” and the man wearing that shirt addresses the pro-life argument that abortion kills people.
The other side will point out that abortion kills a human being,” the man says. “But my right to impregnate a woman and then leave her in the dust outweighs the baby’s right.”
The video was first reported by the Daily Wire. In a statement to the outlet, Live Action founder and president Lila Rose called attention to the role real-life “pro-choice” men have played in perpetuating the deaths of dozens of millions of unborn children since Roe v. Wade.
“For decades, we have been told the lie that abortion is a ‘woman’s right’ and that it offers her freedom and empowerment,” Rose said. “The truth is that abortion has always been driven primarily by the demands and desires of so-called ‘pro-choice’ men.”
“Abortion has never been about respecting women, but rather about using a woman’s body for pleasure and then destroying the bodies of her children for profit,” she continued.
“Real men support women and their preborn children,” Rose declared. “A true man never forces their loved ones to endure the violence of abortion.”
“This Live Action video shows the blatant hypocrisy of the multibillion-dollar abortion industry’s ploy to ‘empower women,’ when all it really does is harm her and destroy her innocent child’s life,” she emphasized.
