QUOTE OF THE DAY: Thank God It’s Only Cancer

Huffington Post contributor Monica Fox recently wrote about her relief at learning she had cancer rather than an unplanned pregnancy.

THE QUOTE

In the May essay, headlined “I Was Told I’m Pregnant. Then I Found Out It’s Likely Cancer — And I’m Actually Relieved,” Fox recalled the fear she felt when a doctor told her she was pregnant based on tests conducted after a car accident.

  • But follow-up examination determined Fox’s abnormal hormone levels were probably a sign of ovarian cancer rather than a developing fetus, she wrote.
  • “A wave of relief washed over me. The weight of the stress and anxiety I’d been carrying around suddenly lifted from my shoulders. A faint chorus of angels sang only to me,” she gushed. “Yes, cancer was a relief over pregnancy.”
  • “I don’t have to choose from one of three horrific options,” Fox continued, listing motherhood, adoption or abortion. “With cancer, disease or dysfunction, there is no government intervention or regulation restricting care. Nor can the pharmacist embarrass me by refusing to fill my medication for religious reasons. No one claims cancer cells have a right to thrive.”

Mainstream pro-abortion rhetoric has grown more radical following the leak last month of a Supreme Court decision that would overturn Roe v. Wade and end national abortion rights.

  • For example, the House Pro-Choice Caucus has issued official new guidance saying the term “pro-choice” — featured in its own name — is “harmful language.”
  • The caucus was apparently inspired by a 2021 Planned Parenthood blog post arguing that not all women have a “choice” when it comes to terminating pregnancy, and abortion should be directly “supported and celebrated.”
