On January 28 Planned Parenthood of the Gulf Coast (currently being sued for Medicaid fraud) featured author and founder of the blog Feministing, Jessica Valenti, at its 40th Anniversary Roe v. Wade Luncheon.

Valenti’s speech was about being an “angry feminist,” and during it she showed the following photo, explaining, “It really perfectly captures the sentiment of this particular moment in the fight for reproductive rights right now.”

The photo is of an abortion proponent protesting a bill in Virginia last year that mandated ultrasounds before abortion. I’ve edited out the vulgarity…

Two words, Jessica: Believe it.

In actuality, that photo perfectly captures the dashed expectations of the pro-abortion movement after Roe v. Wade legalized preborn child murder throughout the land in 1973.  They thought they had won. They thought disapproving Americans would eventually get over it, and abortion would become a normal part of life.

Valenti went on in her speech to say, “It’s not that I’m angry. It’s that I’m exhausted. The war on reproductive health and autonomy feels absolutely never ending.”

The fact is, Jessica, the war will indeed never end – until we win.

Though a righteous person falls seven times, he will rise again,
but the wicked stumble into calamity. ~ Proverbs 24:16
