Pro-choice advocacy has been given a place of privilege on Univision’s sister network, Fusion, with a new video being dedicated to the views of Missayr Boker, assistant political director of the National Association for the Repeal of Abortion Laws (NARAL).
Fusion, which consistently shows little willingness to include dissenting voices and views, does not conceal the fact that they just love abortion. The far-left network was also recently seen praising NARAL for taking a stance against Trump and launching a campaign against his “atrocious record on women” and comparing the Republican frontrunner’s record to that of Hillary Clinton, who Fusion describes as “a woman with a long and accomplished career that has prioritized women, children, and the working poor”.
The video was created as part of Fusion’s “The 30” series, in which they profile 30 women age 30 or younger, who they say will help shape the 2016 election.
In the video, NARAL’s Missayr Boker disregards core human rights that our Declaration of Independence affirms – “the right to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness.” In NARAL and Fusion’s upside down world, the right they demand is based on ending the life of another human being.
The most basic reason for human rights is to protect those who are the most defenseless among us. Today human life starting from conception is, by definition, among the most vulnerable and threatened.
Boker and NARAL give absolutely no consideration to the life of the human being in the womb. If they could, the unborn would certainly plead for their human rights, so it is up to us to do it for them.
Below are excerpts from the March 15, 2016 Fusion video “Abortion rights are basic human rights for women | The 30.”
MISSAYR BOKER, ASSISTANT POLITICAL DIRECTOR, NARAL PRO-CHOICE AMERICA: People don’t feel like this is a personal decision anymore.
You have politicians trying to shame women out of being able to do what feels and is right for their family.
7 in 10 Americans believe in the values of Roe v. Wade, yet our representation does not reflect those values.
Not being pro-choice is a liability, politically… and I think Republicans and anti-Pro-Choice candidates know that and so in order to win elections they understand that they need to, they need to walk some of that back. Part of our charge as an organization is making sure that they’re not able to do that
I think this is a human rights issue, it’s important to understand that in this context.
Not having access to really be in control of your own body and your own reproductive choices has a rippling effect on your status in society.
I’m originally from Liberia… We have a female president now and that’s very empowering… Liberia is a place where, I would say, women are pretty undervalued. The reason why women don’t have great jobs, don’t have positions of power, don’t have access to education, is because women are having kids at 14, 15, 16, 17, 18 years old and their decision to have that child is not theirs.
I for one would not like my daughter, or my son for that matter, to grow up in a world that reflects such little value for these personal decisions.
