Skip to comments.Brit Hume on Abortion

Brit Hume has long had my respect as one of the best journalists who has ever covered Washington. With this unsparing commentary on abortion, one of the best I have ever heard from anyone, he stands in the ranks of men and women throughout the ages who have gallantly attacked the entrenched evils of their time and ushered in better days. Bravo, Mr. Hume!
This is the 41st anniversary of the day the Supreme Court found that a generalized right to privacy it had basically invented, meant that a woman has a constitutional right to snuff out an unborn life, a human being with a beating heart. Thats what a fetus as young as six weeks is.
Small wonder these protesters still come every year to register their continuing objections. Some estimates are that as many as 55 million abortions 55 million have occurred since the Court acted. In that time, science has given us an ever clearer picture of just how much of a baby a fetus is. At 20 weeks, we now know, these tiny creatures can hear, even recognize a mothers voice. Their toenails are growing and their hearts beat loud enough to be heard by a stethoscope.
The moral case for allowing such beings to be killed grows ever weaker and its advocates resort to ever more absurd euphemisms to describe what they support. Theyre not really pro-abortion, theyve long said, theyre pro-choice. This isnt about killing unborn babies. its about reproductive health. And the biggest chain of abortion clinics in the country refers to itself as Planned Parenthood.

Brit buried a son, he has a special awareness of the blessing of loving children
“...Brit buried a son, ...”
One of the single most horrible things... a parent outliving their child.
Brit Hume is a good, decent man. God bless him for standing up for the babies.
Fifty-five million. Pretty bad when we’ve left the nazis in the dust.
The American people will always think of abortion as “birth control”. It’s in their genes.
“The American people will always think of abortion as birth control. Its in their genes.”
I think that it is indoctrinated thought and can be changed.
Thanks for this...I watched it when he was on SR and my jaw hit the floor...
I applaud anyone who is anti abortion. That said, Brit Hume is part of the Washington “elite” crowd. He is a faux Conservative. A good man I’m sure, but I wouldn’t be supporting him in any run for office.
His fetus facts are VERY conservative. Here are some facts from The National Geographic video “In The Womb”.
Brain “activity” as early as 15 DAYS,

heart “activity” as soon as 22 DAYS. (2:04 mark)
IT’S A LIVING HUMAN BABY with heart and brain “activity” at 22 DAYS.
