Rep. Ilhan Omar, Congresswoman from a district known as the “terrorist recruitment capital of the United States”, attacked Dr. Ben Carson on Twitter this week and quickly met a sharp explanation of the left’s hypocrisy on the issue of life.
After being accused of not being ‘fully awake’ during a House hearing, Carson responded to Omar: “Since you brought it up… I know what it’s like to actually be sleepy, especially after 18-hour surgeries and operating on babies in the womb. I hope @IlhanMN knows I care about all people, even those she doesn’t recognize as having a right to life.”
Omar has long been a proponent of expanding abortion laws to allow women to abort children regardless of the term of the pregnancy. NARAL Pro-Choice America endorsed Omar’s run for Congress, to which Omar responded “When elected to Congress, I will be a strong advocate to ensure continued access to contraception and abortion coverage, regardless of income or insurance.”
Omar also most recently blamed ‘religious fundamentalists’ of “trying to manipulate state laws…to impose their beliefs on an entire society” after the passage of several Pro-Life Heartbeat Bills through state governments over the past weeks. It’s unacceptable that Omar attacked people of faith for standing for life, when it has been proven that life begins at conception. Dr. Ben Carson is right when he said, “As a surgeon, I have operated on infants pre-birth. I can assure you they are very much alive.”
We agree with Dr. Carson – we’ll stand up for the lives that people like Omar don’t even recognize as having a right to continue. Meanwhile, Omar will continue to advocate on behalf of terrorists and illegal immigrants’ perceived right to bypass ICE and break our nation’s laws.
How can progressive Democrats like Omar be so apparently contradicting when it comes to the issue of life? They’re willing to protect people who break our laws and take advantage of our country’s resources but meanwhile, advocate for the right to kill an innocent unborn.
Americans United for Values will always fight for life, even when progressive Democrats bully pro-life advocates on the floor of the United States House of Representatives. Join our fight!
