As Twitchy reported Tuesday, “The Good Place” actress Jameela Jamil weighed in on the abortion debate, and her take wasn’t that far from Alabama State Rep. John Rogers’ belief that “you kill them now or you kill them later” — unwanted and loved kids surely will end up being sent to the electric chair, so you might as well save the trouble and kill them in the womb. Apparently, there’s no option in between.
Jamil shared that her abortion was the best decision she’d ever made and that it would be cruel to sentence unwanted children to — gasp! —foster homes, where their lives will certainly be ruined (take that, all you foster parents out there).
I had an abortion when I was young, and it was the best decision I have ever made. Both for me, and for the baby I didn’t want, and wasn’t ready for, emotionally, psychologically and financially. So many children will end up in foster homes. So many lives ruined. So very cruel.

Having spent my entire childhood in foster care, I feel physically SICK every time I see a tweet saying we are all basically better off dead. https://t.co/ktSSPBQf67

That was Monday, and on Tuesday she followed up with another hot take on abortion that again hinges on foreseeing the future of the unborn child.
*So* many of the same people saying that a 6 week old fetus is a life to be protected, only think that as long as the baby won’t be gay/trans… ??

Um, what? Pro-lifers wouldn’t mind aborting a baby if they knew it would be gay?
Or a woman!

Or an immigrant

Damn, Marius … you’re cold.
Or black, or brown, or Muslim, or an immigrant, or disabled, or Jewish, or . . .

Pretty sure no one thinks that but okay. https://t.co/IRYM4vHNMC

Maybe talk to your pro-choice ally Rogers, who followed up by suggesting “retarded” and “crazy” babies like Donald Trump Jr. should have been aborted. You can never be sure, though, so better abort them all.
Not a single pro-life person I have ever known or followed on Twitter has ever said such. All life is precious! From conception until natural death.

Um, maybe read that piece in The Federalist first?
It's actually a critique to having an abortion , it's not a real incident.
— Darth Uni(corn) (@Halalima17) May 14, 2019
This really isn’t true. Surprising to me that you are so keen to learn about so many things but when it comes to a pro life perspective you shut it down immediately. You’re isolating a large group of people here

That’s a lie

Ma'am, you're mistaken….
— george raynor (@georgeraynor) May 14, 2019
Literally no one thinks that
— Joshua Hardison (@joshuagoshua) May 14, 2019
I have never heard anyone say that. Ever.
— Jeanne Nicholson ? (@JeannesTweeting) May 15, 2019
That's judgmental to assume that.
— Syra Fiscel (@regalpossum) May 14, 2019
And you know this how? How many folks have said: "I'm pro-life, unless they are gay or trans, then abort them, please." How many have said this to you that you know "so many" do?

Who? This sounds anecdotal

Actually just not true ??♀️ I’m for all life- from yours to a LGQBT homeless person, to an unborn baby in the womb.
It’s easier to say some life, but most pro-life people are for ALL life, not just ones we pick and choose.
— Joelle Antoinette (@treatjoeselff) May 15, 2019
Hi! The pro-life movement does not support the murder of gay or trans people. Thanks!
— Chandler Lasch (@ChandlerLasch) May 15, 2019
Am amazed that so many adults in this thread honestly cannot think of any way to go about an unwanted pregnancy other than killing the fetus.

What if I told you all of the above is worth protecting?

All life matters.

I liked you as an actress, but this is just sad. God bless.
— Tom Humes (@HumesTom) May 15, 2019
If you want sad, click on her tweet and read the replies … pro-lifers are monsters.
'Best decision I have ever made': This 'Good Place' actress is so glad she spared her baby from cruelty by getting it aborted https://t.co/cPODOFUQaF
