It’s been several days now since the world ended, but somehow, we’re all still here, if only barely.
Who’s going to talk us off of this ledge? Sadly, it looks like it’s not gonna be Canadian OB/GYN and pro-abortion advocate Dr. Jen Gunter. Not if she has to share a space “with a ‘pro-life/anti-abortion’ voice,” at least:
I was just asked to be on The National to discuss Roe and abortion…and then I found out it would be a panel with a “pro-life/anti-abortion” voice. I am livid and sent this reply. I couldn’t care less if this means I will not be asked back to the CBC. It needed to be said. pic.twitter.com/bwIn0h0HDa

Jen Gunter has integrity, you see. She will not be part of any factual discussion that also includes someone who has fallen under the spell of “fetal worship.”
Give this woman a Nobel Prize or something. Her stunning bravery is unmatched.

Yes, the CBC has a massive platform and would actually be the perfect place to debate abortion rights, but only if the debate is completely one-sided!
Clearly, Dr. Jennifer Gunter is 150% confident that her point of view is the right one, so what’s even the point of giving her a golden opportunity to defend that point of view against someone with a conflicting perspective?
Imagine thinking you come off well with a tweet like this. https://t.co/UwcruGVduy

Dr. Jennifer Gunter thinks she comes off great. And yes, there are people out there who agree with her.
And by “agree with her,” we mean “don’t understand how debates are supposed to work”:

By this same logic, no one should ever debate Holocaust deniers, either. Or racists. Or anyone who’s wrong about any issue.
You should never be involved in anything because you refuse to accept the fact that any and all of your beliefs may at one point be proven wrong.
Healthy principles are good, ones that literally only isnane people believe the opposite. Like murder = good. https://t.co/NTiTs0Id2k

If Dr. Jennifer Gunter were being honest with herself, she’d still pull out of a debate with a pro-lifer. But not because the pro-lifer is “wrong.” Gunter should pull herself out of a debate with a pro-lifer because she just straight-up sucks at making a pro-choice/pro-abortion case:
“I’ve pulled a fetal skull out of the abdomen of someone who was butchered” is not the pro abortion talking point you think it is https://t.co/byk66qfnEA
