Just how radical is leftist feminism becoming? If a disturbing new video gaining attention online is any indication of the left’s trajectory, then the debate surrounding abortion will soon enter its darkest period yet.

The video, featuring author and radical feminist Sophie Lewis, describes pregnancy as “gestational work” and abortion as “an acceptable violence” and “a form of killing that we need to be able to defend.”

You have to read Lewis’ words to understand the full breadth of the evil underlying her belief:

We’re facing a really terrible attack on abortion. In the U.S. where I live, in Northern Ireland and elsewhere. In the past, the strategies that our side has tended to use have included a kind of ceding ground to our enemies. We tend to say that abortion is “Indeed very bad, but,” or we say “Luckily it’s not killing, luckily it’s just a health care right.”

We have very little to lose at the moment when it comes to abortion and I’m interested in winning radically. I wonder if we could think about defending abortion as a right to stop doing gestational work. Abortion is, in my opinion, and I recognize how controversial this is, a form of killing. It is a form of killing that we need to be able to defend.

I am not interested in where a human life starts to exist. I see the forms of making and unmaking each other as continuous processes. The other end of the spectrum is learning how to die well and hold each other and let each other go at the end of our lives, as well as at the beginning.

But looking at the biology of the hemochorial placentation helps me think about the violence that, innocently, a fetus meets out vis-a-vis a gestator. That violence is an unacceptable violence for someone who doesn’t want to do gestational work. The violence that the gestator meets out to essentially go on strike or exit that workplace is an acceptable violence.
The video, posted by publishing house Verso Books, is meant to promote Lewis’ book, “Full Surrogacy Now: Feminism Against Family,” in which she argues that family should be abolished — a starkly Marxist ideal fully tested in the 20th century — and that human reproduction should happen only through surrogacy.

In a recent interview with Lewis, liberal magazine The Nation summarized Lewis’ thesis in that she “specifically links family abolition to a radical reconceptualization of pregnancy itself. The act of carrying a child to term, she insists, is work—labor that has long been exploited and overlooked by the academy—and so is mothering.”

      The lady is completely deranged! If I were hell bent on not getting pregnant, there is a myriad of ways I can do that without even considering an abortion! Abortion is not healthcare nor is it birth control! Abortion is murder! Why is society becoming so numb to this type of murder!?

    She knows she stands for murder and thinks she is justified. I think most that do this type of thing are sociopaths at best and just completely insane and evil at worst.

    People like this needs to be court ordered to a hysterectomy and men that believe this need castrated. They place no value on human life and shouldn’t be allowed near children or society. They should never be given a chance to reproduce.

    To this feminist and others who thinks abortion is the best way your parents should have done it to you first. I would love to smack her parents in the head what were they thinking making this low life bringing her into this planet she needs to go

    First. I wish her mother, if she had one, should have aborted her. Second, these people never seem to put the blame where it belongs. On the female that doesn’t take precautions.

    All the fancy words she uses, and all of the “intellectual” garbage she is spewing doesn’t change the fact that ABORTION IS MURDER. And nothing she can say can change that fact. I agree with others who said, her mother should have aborted her – instead of letting this pile of crap ever enter the world.

      She has in fact admitted that abortion is murder. But she called it killing that must be defended. The left is getting sicker and sicker. What troubles me the most is that some of my “Christian?” friends are sliding in that direction. thinking that abortion, after all isn’t that bad in some cases. and defendable.

    Seems to me that whether you support abortion or not this woman should appall both sides of the debate. If her parents are normal people I feel sorry for them having such a cold heartless daughter.
