After every high-profile killing of innocent people, such as the recent shooting of two young news reporters in the United States, we’re told the problem is a combination of lax gun controls and ‘toxic masculinity’. Because only men murder innocent people, right? No. As Janet Bloomfield explains in her piece:
Women prefer victims who can’t fight back. They prefer to stab, beat, shoot, burn, strangle, cut the throats of babies, toddlers and children. Often prompted by sheer cruelty, vindictiveness and selfishness.
None of those innocents’ lives would have been saved if there were no firearms in the United States. We could – we should – add the lives of many millions of embryos and foetuses brought to an early end by the choices overwhelmingly made by women. In the UK alone, well over 8 million elective abortions have been carried out since the Abortion Act 1967.
