Pro-Choice Advocates Skirt Truth When Asked if Abortion Kills

Rep. Mike Johnson, La. (Rep. Mike Johnson Twitter page)

Abortion advocates again and again declined to respond to a congressman's seemingly simple questions about the unborn last Thursday during a hearing before the House Judiciary Committee.

Rep. Mike Johnson's, R-La., inquiries were straightforward, yet the reactions they sparked made for some truly awkward moments in the hearing room.

His questions to Stephanie Loraine Piñeiro, co-executive director of Florida Access Network, and Dr. Ghazaleh Moayedi, an OB-GYN, didn't go over too well.

Here's an example: After Johnson asked, "Does abortion kill something that's alive—take the life of something that's alive?" Moayedi responded by citing issues she believes his questions could cause, Fox News reported.

"Sir, the way that you're asking these questions actually intentionally invite violence and harassment to both of us—to all of us," she said.

But Johnson wasn't backing away from his quest for definitive responses. At one point he asked, "When you dismember something in the womb, is that a human being or not? It's a living being, yes or no?"

According to Fox, no one seemed to directly answer these questions—or other similar curiosities Johnson posed.

At another point, the congressman asked, "Is it OK to murder a 10-year-old child?" to which he was still unable to get a "yes" or "no" response.

The exchange left Johnson tweeting afterward that he believes the dialogue and failure to answer actually helps pro-lifers in the midst of the ongoing ideological battle over the unborn.

The silence, he said, exposes an overarching refusal to honestly address the reality of what happens during an abortion.

"When confronted with simple, direct questions about whether abortion takes a human life, Democrats never give a straight answer, because the truth is devastating to their cause," he wrote. "We will continue to expose them. This is how we will win the abortion debate."
