QUOTE OF THE DAY: ‘Pro-Life’ Activists Start Surprising Chant About ‘Trans Lives’

THE QUOTE

“Trans lives start at conception!” a group of anti-abortion activists chanted at “pro-choicers” in a video posted to Twitter by Daily Signal reporter Mary Margaret Olohan.

The chant appeared to be an attempt to put two defining progressive causes into tension: support for abortion and advocacy for LGBT rights.

  • But some conservatives weren’t fans of the strategy.
  • “The pro-life movement should not be pursuing an alliance or promotion of transgenderism, if we want to make a biological argument against abortion,” tweeted Matt Lamb, an assistant editor for The College Fix.

THE CASE

Arguments began Wednesday in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health, seen as the most serious challenge to Roe v. Wade in 30 years.
  • The Supreme Court looked poised to uphold the 2018 Mississippi law in question, which bans abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy.
  • Even if the court stopped short of overturning Roe, such a ruling would allow greater restrictions.
  • “There are no half measures here,” Sherif Girgis, a Notre Dame law professor who once served as a law clerk for Justice Samuel Alito, told the Associated Press.
