Nut Ball Reporter Advocates More Abortions to Lower Crime
Reporter-model Becky Griffin tweeted the following in response to the mass shooting at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida:
Woman puts baby up for adoption, he grows up to be a violent young man who will spend the rest of his life in prison for a mass murder. Tell me more about how abortions are wrong.
Wow! And this from someone who’s Jewish. There is so much wrong with this that I don’t know where to begin. She must have special cognitive powers to know who will turn out well and who won’t. Some people grow up in the worst of conditions and turn out great, and some people have had all the privileges of life and end up murdering their parents.

Her sweeping idiocy might have caught the adopted Steve Jobs, one of the co-founders of Apple in 1976, in the abortion net. What would the world be like without Steve Jobs? Griffin would dismiss such an argument because the biological and adoptive parents were genetically superior, and since mental illness is inherited, there was a very good chance that Jobs would turn out OK. This, my friends, is the eugenics’ ideology in a nutshell. It doesn’t take a genius to see that one’ person’s “mental illness” is another person’s deplorable ideology.
Following her logic, the abortion industry should set up shop in the most crime-infested cities in the United States, but that would reduce the size of the voting population of the Democrat Party.
The thing of it is, school shootings are part of our abortion culture. Prior to Roe v. Wade (1973) and the generation that followed, how many school shootings can you name? School shootings have become a tragedy since abortion has been legal and defended by people like Griffin and the Democrat Party!
Griffin contends that her argument is based on sound science. The authors of Freakonomics asserted that there is a link between legalized abortion and the reduction of crime.1 This is logical. If crimes are committed by people who are alive, and you kill some of them before they can commit crimes, crime will be reduced. The thing of it is, the claim has been thoroughly debunked.
The same logic tells us that abortion also reduces the number of doctors, policemen, philanthropists, engineers, artists, and every other group, including reporters and models like Becky Griffin.
One could argue that prohibiting abortion leads to political freedom. In 1966, Communist dictator Nicolae Ceauşescu outlawed abortion. Moral consciousness had nothing to do with his new anti-abortion laws. “The fetus,” he claimed, “is the property of the entire society. Anyone who avoids having children is a deserter who abandons the laws of national continuity.”2 For Ceauşescu, more children meant more Communists. The irony is “that his demise was precipitated in large measure by the youth of Romania—a great number of whom, were it not for his abortion ban, would never have been born at all.”3
Who’s getting most of the abortions? Liberals. Who’s having fewer babies? Liberals. At least one very liberal columnist has noticed the problem:
[F]or the past 30 years or so, conservatives—particularly those of the right-wing red-state Christian strain—have been out-breeding liberals by a margin of at least 20 percent, if not far more…. One theory goes like this: Libs are generally more socially conscious and hence tend to actually give a modicum of thought to what it means to pop out a brood of children in this modern overstuffed age. Also, many other liberal bohos [Bohemians] are (admittedly) happy selfish suckwads who want all the modern booty for themselves and won’t want to give up the Ducati and the plasma and the biannual trip to Cinque Terre for the sake of a pod of rug rats and 15 grand a year (each) for private kindergarten. Translation: Libs just aren’t procreating like they could/should be.4
A billboard located in minority neighborhoods might get some people to think about what they are doing when they decide to kill their unborn babies since abortion has been described by some black leaders, including Jesse Jackson at one time,5 as “black genocide.” Here are a few statistics that African Americans might not be aware of:
- Between 1882 and 1968, 3,446 Blacks were lynched in the U.S. That number is surpassed in less than 3 days by abortion.
- 1,452 African-American children are killed each day by abortion.
- 3 out of 5 pregnant African-American women will abort their child.
- Since 1973 there have been over 13 million Black children killed and their mothers victimized by the U.S. abortion industry.
How long do you think abortion would be legal in America if Blacks thought more consistently and deeply about the long-term consequences of this Democrat-supported policy?
A billboard might carry this message: “Abortion supports illegal immigration.” One of the arguments for amnesty for illegal aliens is that America is short of workers. We wouldn’t have the need for an illegal workforce if we hadn’t killed 50 million unborn babies since 1973.
Here’s a billboard slogan that might get someone’s attention. “Support Islam. Have an abortion.” Muslim immigrants in Europe are reproducing themselves in greater numbers than the indigenous European population, although this is beginning to change ever so slightly.6 Europeans have been the Muslim writing on the wall. The majority of Muslims don’t practice birth control, and abortion is considered a sin. Based on demographic projections alone, it won’t take too long before Europe is a Muslim majority if non-Muslims don’t start getting busy.
Advocating for abortion to cut down on crime could be used by someone like the mentally disturbed Florida shooter to justify the murder of high school students. He was only culling the herd for a better tomorrow.

They further never talk about aborting a baby because that would imply something human. Rather they talk about aborting the fetus. Fetus sounds less than human and therefore abortion can be justified.” [↩]
