‘A human woman should have more rights probably than a bald eagle’
PragerU’s Will Witt recently headed into Echo Park in Los Angeles to ask folks to sign a petition protecting eagle eggs — i.e., unborn eagles.
As you might expect, the folks he encountered were quite excited to step up and offer their names in support of saving birds growing in fragile shells.
“Eagles are people, too,” one woman remarked as she grabbed a pen.
“I hope you save the eagles,” another woman noted as she polished off her signature.
The tables turn
But Witt had another petition on his clipboard right underneath: a call to protect unborn babies.
And the turnabout was stunning.
The same woman who declared “eagles are people, too” hit the brakes when it came to protecting humans in the womb: “I’m pro-abortion. Sorry.”
And the woman who hoped Witt would “save the eagles” put on the red light after encountering the petition protecting unborn babies: “I don’t agree. I fully support abortion.”
‘It’s the mother’s decision’
What reasons did they give for protecting eagle eggs and not human children in the womb?
“It’s the mother’s decision,” one woman replied, adding that “a human woman should have more rights probably than a bald eagle.”
Another woman noted, “I feel like anyone can make their own decision about their body” and added that “babies are gross.”
“I don’t think eagles have a lot of opinions,” another person said.
