An amazing video was recently released to the Internet showing one condescending liberal politician being dressed down by an African pro-life activist who cut through all of the talking points to unmask the liberal hypocrisy on abortion.
During a debate between socialist Danish politician Mette Gjerskov and African pro-life activist Obianuju Ekeocha, the heart of the matter was uncovered.
Gjerskov argued that her feelings were hurt because she hated colonialism and all she wanted to do was help women in Europe have better lives (by killing their children). After Gjerskov whined that it wasn’t fair to call Europe’s forced abortion policies in Africa “neo-colonialist,” she destroyed the condescending liberal by pointing out Europe’s abortion policies were the exact definition of neo-colonialist.
Obianuju Ekeocha, the London, England-based founder of Culture of Life Africa, called the Dane’s comment “amazing.” Ekeocha said that her native Ibo tongue and “most African languages, don’t even have a way of phrasing having an abortion that means anything good.”
“Neo-colonialism was occurring,” Ekeocha continued, when “people from the Western World try to give us this kind of language that we could never translate. They tell us it actually means something, that women can do something with their body that isn’t even morally bad.”
“Most of the African communities actually believe by their traditions and their cultural standards that abortion is a direct attack on human life,” said Ekeocha. Telling African women that belief is wrong is the same, she argued, as telling them that “what her parents, her grandparents, her ancestors taught her is actually wrong. You’re going to have to tell her that they have always been wrong, and that, madame, is colonization.”Abortion United Nations
