Hawaii Democrat Senator Mazie Hirono raised eyebrows last week when she declared a “call to arms” in the fight for widespread abortion access.

A member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Hirono made her remarks after Sen. Lindsey Graham introduced a bill that would protect preborn children from abortion after 15 weeks.

“When I hear my colleagues talking about how, you know, it should be states’ rights, or government should not be telling us what to do, the word ‘hypocrites,’ it doesn’t even go far enough to call them out on what they’re doing,” she claimed. “This is an outright attack on women in this country. That is how I see it.”

“That is how more and more women and those who support our right to make decisions about our own bodies, that is how we see it,” she continued. “And why? Because that’s what’s happening.”

“Madam president, I yield the floor, but clearly, you know, this is a — literally call to arms in our country, I yield the floor,” she concluded.

Should liberals engage in a ‘call to arms’ against pro-lifers?

Abortion at 15 weeks is most often carried out through a D&E (dilation and evacuation) dismemberment abortion in which the child is killed when her arms and legs are torn off of her torso and her head is crushed. Ending abortion isn’t about state rights but about human rights — the right to life and the right to not be violently killed.

After the speech, many people on social media took Hirono to task for her incendiary comments, which came at a time when violence against the pro-life movement is at an all-time high.

Since the overturn of Roe v. Wade, radical groups like Jane’s Revenge have been responsible for attacks against pregnancy resource centers and pro-life offices across the country. Typical attacks include vandalism and graffiti, though several pregnancy resource centers and a pro-life office were firebombed. Despite this, not a single arrest has been made for any of the crimes.

A recent report put out by the Religious Freedom Institute indicates that the threat of violence against the pro-life movement remains high. Lawmakers should be working to ensure that the violence comes to an end and that all people are protected from threats, fear, and intimidation. Instead, the admonition that the pro-choice movement needs to raise a “call to arms” only further shows that abortion advocates will do anything to ensure that the killing of preborn children continues.

EDITOR’S NOTE: With what has been called the “Sovietization” of the Biden administration – including the shocking criminalization of dissent and massive weaponization of the FBI against political opponents – America is being increasingly compared to a third-world or communist dictatorship. Yet America still has one sacred institution that dictatorships from Zimbabwe to communist China don’t have: ELECTIONS. And in reality, there is no reason, despite the regime’s all-out efforts at election rigging, that the tens of millions of decent, right-thinking American voters cannot stop the Biden administration’s ever-expanding madness this November. For that reason, the September issue of WND’s critically acclaimed monthly Whistleblower magazine insightfully covers the most electrifying and important races, illuminates the biggest issues, reveals how the latest federal takeover of elections actually violates the law, and much more. Looking forward to 2024, the issue also highlights why, to quote the chairman of a major think tank, Donald Trump “is the most towering political figure in living memory” and the person “most fit to lead” today’s America. It’s all in “STOPPING THE MADNESS: A MIDTERM ELECTION GUIDE FOR VOTERS WHO LOVE AMERICA.”
