Abortion is a “blessing” and an “act of love,” a Texas abortionist told lawmakers at a U.S. House hearing Thursday.
Ghazaleh Moayedi, a Texas abortionist invited by Democrats to testify at a hearing about abortion, slammed the new state heartbeat law, which prohibits abortions once an unborn baby’s heartbeat is detectable, about six weeks of pregnancy.
The law, which went into effect Sept. 1, has saved as many as 2,800 unborn babies’ lives so far and spared countless mothers from the physical and emotional pain of abortion.
Moayedi, however, who makes her living aborting unborn babies, claimed that the pro-life law is “extremely dangerous” and abortion is a “blessing.”
“We need laws that elevate science and evidence and recognize the dignity and autonomy of people accessing care,” she said, adding that it is a “global fact” that “when people do not have access to abortion care, that maternal morbidity and mortality rates rise.”
Moayedi went on to claim that killing unborn babies in abortions saves lives.

“Texas deserves better. I know firsthand that abortion saves lives,” she continued. “For the thousands of people I’ve cared for, abortion is a blessing, abortion is an act of love, abortion is freedom.”
Many women who have had abortions disagree. Countless women regret their abortions, and thousands have shared their stories of regret and healing through the Silent No More Awareness Campaign and other pro-life efforts.
And there are hundreds, perhaps thousands, more women who cannot speak out against such lies because they died along with their unborn babies in supposedly “safe, legal” abortions.
Dr. Ingrid Skop, a pro-life Texas OB-GYN who also testified at the hearing, shared one such heartbreaking story.
“I remember holding the hand of a woman who was dying as a result of abortion complications,” she told lawmakers. “A black woman who was my patient recalled tearfully how her mother forced her to undergo an abortion; then her current boyfriend wanted her to abort this, her second child. She strongly desired both of her children. How is this a woman’s choice?”
Abortion can never be about freedom or love because its very purpose is to destroy the life of a unique, living human being – the woman’s own child. Abortions kill irreplaceable human beings and sever the unique, powerful bond between mother and child forever.
