recent studies reveal that 100% of abortions are performed on women who do not wish to be pregnant and 0% of abortions are performed on conservative republican men

First of all, that first percentage is simply wrong. In a national study cited by Public Eye, a PRO-CHOICE political research organization, and published in the Medical Science Monitor, 64% of women who obtained abortions reported feeling pressure, coercion, or force from others in making that decision. Women who resist abortion have sometimes been beaten, tortured, or even killed. Incidentally, men are commonly the ones forcing them into it. The study also showed in 95% of all cases, the male partner plays a central role in the decision to have an abortion.

Second, my husband is transgender and maybe not conservative but at least moderate, and conservative on the topic of abortion. He has the ability to get pregnant, and no, an abortion would not be performed on him because HE IS MORALLY AGAINST IT. Aside from the true point about cis men not getting abortions, you are essentially saying that “people who believe abortion is wrong don’t get abortions.” Shocking. Conservative republican men are also not being trafficked into prostitution and sexual slavery but that certainly doesn’t negate their ability to have a moral opinion on it. Does it mean theirs is a more important opinion than women’s? Of course not. But it still matters. They still have a right to vote on an issue that involves not just women/pregnant people, but also a developing child.

Here’s another statistic! 100% of abortions are performed with the intention and most often the consequence of the death of an innocent child who had no say in the matter and did not ask to be conceived. Abortion in Canada is legal minutes before birth, but as soon as that same child exits the womb it’s considered murder.

In conclusion this statement is factually false and overly simplistic.
