Of all the reactions unleashed today by the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn the historic Roe v. Wade ruling, few have been as monstrous and abhorrent as that of Ana Navarro. The CNN and The View panelist lashed out against disabled people, in an absolutely abominable rant, after being asked about the abortion situation in the United States.
Navarro opened her intervention with the classic abortionist fallacy of “my body, my choice”, but then came the worst. “I have a family with a lot of special needs kids. I have a brother who’s 57 and has the mental and motor skills of a one-year-old. And I know what that means financially, emotionally, physically for a family. And I know not all families can do it,” she said. “I also have a step-granddaughter who was born with Down syndrome and you know what? It’s very difficult to get support services in Florida.”
According to Navarro’s logic, if a child is found to have a disability in the womb, it is preferable to kill the child than to give it a chance at life. It is a Dantesque thought, on the level of Germany in the ’40s. Pure and simple Eugenics.
Then she talks about another step-grandson “who is very autistic…”. The truth is that the video is very difficult to assimilate. For Navarro, it was preferable for her family members to die simply because they have a condition. For her, her loved ones are simply nuisances who deserve nothing more than death. This is the logic of the pro-abortion movement: total and complete selfishness. The logic of arrogance that believes it has the power to decide who deserves to live and who does not. What can we expect from such a person?
We reject the culture of death that figures like Ana Navarro, who closes her participation by saying that she is in favor of abortion, despite being a practicing Catholic, because she is an American and is only Catholic when she is “in church”. From here we can help her to clarify the picture.

You cannot be Catholic and promote the murder of unborn children. You cannot be an American and deny the fundamental premise of the American ideal: the dream of a better life, of a new opportunity, of bettering oneself despite any obstacle (including any disability). You cannot be an American and eliminate that possibility outright by killing the unborn. You cannot be a decent person and wish death on disabled children. Read this repeatedly, Ana.
