Leftists have often made the argument that abortion must be necessary to prevent a range of societal ills, including poverty and preventing children with mental and physical disabilities from living difficult lives.

The argument can be traced back to Planned Parenthood founder Magaret Sanger, who believed that abortion could be used to reduce the number of African-Americans in the United States.

It is a dark and evil argument with racist origins, but leftists still persist in making it anyways.

Navarro made the argument on CNN on Friday, using her own special needs relatives as an example for why abortion is necessary, including her own grandson and brother.

Another CNN contributor, who is pro-choice, was so repulsed by the argument that she pushed back against Navarro.


It appears that even some of CNN’s own liberal contributors have an upper limit for the evil that they will tolerate in the name of supporting abortion.

“Ana Navarro strongly implied abortions are necessary because they can relieve mothers from caring for children with special needs.
The CNN Contributor and sometime View co-host spouted her reasoning Friday, after the Supreme Court overturned Roe V Wade, giving individual states the authority to determine abortion legislation.

“I have a family with a lot of special needs cases,” Navarro said.

“I have a brother who is 57 and has the mental and motor skills of a one year old.”

“I have a step-granddaughter who was born with down syndrome.”

“I’ve got another step-grandson who is very autistic.”

CNN Commentator S.E. Cupp said she also has special needs children in her family, including an autistic child. Cupp said she’s never met a parent of an autistic child who wished they aborted their child.

“These children face enough stigmas and challenges,” she wrote on Twitter. “Please don’t use our incredible, special, wonderful, super-hero kids to make political arguments, especially about the benefits of abortion.”
