Conservative actor Kevin Sorbo has heard just about enough of Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer and her claim that abortion is “life-sustaining.”
No really, the Michigan governor—an elected official potentially in the running to be Joe Biden’s vice presidential candidate—described the literal taking of a baby’s life as “life-sustaining.”
The comment came as the state of Michigan is allowing Planned Parenthood facilities to remain open under coronavirus-related lockdowns.
“A woman’s health care, her whole future, her ability to decide if and when she starts a family is not an election,” the governor said during a podcast interview via the Western Journal.
“It is fundamental to her life. It is life-sustaining, and it’s something that government should not be getting in the middle of,” she added.
We’ll give you a second to process that one…
The Western Journal reports the governor’s comments had some people digging up a 2018 photo of her wearing a pink “Planned Parenthood Makes America Great” cap, made to resemble President Trump’s 2016 campaign hat.

…then came Sorbo who used the quote, used the controversy and used the photo to deliver a knock-out meme.
“Human life is not important to her. What a wonderful woman,” he captioned a tweet with the photo of Gretchen.

The Western Journal goes on to describe Planned Parenthood as “one of the most unethical charnel houses in America, one which launders the number of babies it aborts under the guise of providing health care for women.”
The outlet also details how and why Planned Parenthood continues to peddle a “pretty disingenuous” claim that abortion services only make up 4 percent of what the company does.
From the report:
“Planned Parenthood arrives at this false statistic by dividing the number of children it aborted (345,672) for the year by the number of ‘services’ the group provided (9.8 million),” Liberty Counsel, a pro-life nonprofit law group, said in a news release this January.
“This means when a woman visits a Planned Parenthood facility to obtain an abortion, she is also given a pregnancy test, an STI test, a cancer screening and contraception. Therefore, the abortion procedure would be considered 20 percent of the ‘services’ she received.
“This is why the group lists its annual ‘services’ as much higher than the number of patients it saw last year (2.4 million). Using this deceptive formula, the report manipulates the data to make it appear as if abortion is a tiny percent of its ‘services,’ though a much higher percentage of actual patients who visit Planned Parenthood facilities are there, first and foremost, to obtain an abortion.”
