Gloria Steinem Offers Free Lodging For Abortion-Seekers

Gloria Steinem is a huge fan of abortion. So much so that she’s offering a place to stay for anyone traveling to New York City to get an abortion, now that the Dobbs decision has ruined everything.

For Gloria Steinem, activism begins at home.

The morning after the Supreme Court’s overruling of Roe v. Wade, the famed feminist told The Post that her contribution to the cause will include opening her Upper East Side apartment to women in need of abortions.

“Everything from the small effort to say, ‘I have a guest room if you need to come to New York state, you can stay here,’” she said of her initial efforts.

“Which of course is limited since it’s only one room,” she added, laughing. “But at least it’s something that I can offer.”

How very…virtuous of the 88 year old feminist. She’s long been about women’s rights. So much so that if a woman with all her equal rights and stuff, wants to destroy a baby in the womb in order to have a ‘fulfilling life’ then she’s all for it!

Yes, dear dear feminist Gloria who has spent decades blaming men for everything that women haven’t gotten. She spoke a few years ago about her illegal abortion. 

“So I sat there as a reporter for New York Magazine, listening to women tell their stories that were tragic and ludicrous and every human emotion all wrapped into one, and suddenly I thought, ‘Wait a minute, I had an abortion.’ And actually one in three American women had needed an abortion at some time in her life, so why is this illegal and why is it dangerous? And it’s the kind of revelation that comes from people just telling the truth and discovering you’re not alone.”

Later, Steinem added that the very definition of patriarchy is to control women’s bodies: “The definition of patriarchy is to be able to control reproduction, and that means you have to control women’s bodies.”

Ah yes, that’s been her schtick from the get go. Blame the men for everything. Say it’s the patriarchy that is at fault for all of women’s woes. Never mind the fact that it takes two to tango when it comes to getting pregnant. It’s ALWAYS the man’s fault. 

What role could the ERA have in helping to curb the assault on women’s reproductive freedom, with Roe having fallen?

If democracy means anything, it means decision-making power over our own bodies—and that means equal decision-making power. Can men be forbidden to have a vasectomy? So why are women uniquely governed—in terms our physical selves—by various state laws? Well, the answer is because we have a womb. We happen to have the one thing guys don’t. And when you look back in history at authoritarian movements around the world, you learn that often the first thing they have done is to outlaw abortion and declare family planning a crime against the state.

*Sigh …abortion isn’t ‘family planning.’ It’s murder plain and simple. Then, in the same interview she uses Hitler as an example!

The Third Reich is one example of that, correct?

Hitler was elected, which in and of itself we sometimes forget. And the very next day he padlocked all the family planning clinics and declared abortion a crime against the state because obviously he was after creating an Aryan race. Whatever people’s motives are for wanting to restrict or eliminate the right to choose, the control of reproduction is the first step in authoritarian and religious authoritarian movements.

There were family planning ie; abortion clinics in Germany in the 1920’s and ’30’s?? I don’t think so! 

Moving along, as Gloria Steinem extends her invite to all those seeking abortions, Rachel Maddow is warning of anti-abortion terrorism. 

You want to know what a REAL act of domestic terrorism is Rachel? THIS, right here in Northern Colorado.

A Colorado Christian crisis center for pregnant women was vandalized and set on fire Saturday morning, a day after the US Supreme Court reversed federal protection of abortions.

Police responded to a fire at Life Choices in Longmont around 3:20 a.m., and found the building ablaze with covered with graffiti messages referencing the controversial overturning of Roe v. Wade, officials said.

Gloria, might I suggest any one of these fine folks as your next tenants? 

Something else to consider regarding Gloria and her stance on abortion. 

Supposedly Gloria was in desperate straits as she says many women have been and are today. Except she had enough money in 1957 to be heading to India with a stop in England beforehand to seek out a doctor for an abortion. 

So, is Gloria Steinem serious about offering her guest room for anyone who wants an abortion or is she grandstanding?

I’d say grandstanding. You see, she’s only about helping women when it suits her, and offering her guest room is totally for show.

    Honestly, I’m fine with this idea. Let them spend their money. Let them set up abortion vacations. They are the ones who have to live with the consequences.

  • Kevin Thompson says:

    As to the pro-abortion video: I bet their parents are so proud. (s)

  • Frank Hammond says:

    Maybe they can stay with her and her kids – wait…Gloria Steinem killed her kid many years ago. She might even have grandkids today.

  • That guest bedroom sounds like a great spot for some grifter to squat in. Good luck getting her evicted when she refuses to leave.

    This is so much bigger than Ms. Steinem. It’s about women losing their individual rights. I have never thought she was a man basher, but a woman that valued women’s opinions. Including abortion. It is a sad day when we as women have just had the clock rolled back 50 years. Who are we as other women, to determine what choices our friends or neighbors make? Circumstances are different for all women. Finances, Education, Motherhood, a career, age, physical or mental well being, rape, molestation. Children are not for everyone & I am sure no one makes a decision to have an abortion lightly. Please consider that even the most conservative of us find this chapter in womens rights a slap in the face after fighting so diligently to get where we are now.

      ” Children are not for everyone & I am sure no one makes a decision to have an abortion lightly.” You OBVIOUSLY have not been paying attention, there are many who CELEBRATE killing the unborn…
      Women have not lost any rights with this decision, the court merely corrected a mistake made in 1972. Roe was a terrible decision, regardless of your position on abortion and needed to be thrown out. Now states are free to do what they will. Here in Colorado, a woman can still kill her child up to, and even after birth, so please spare me the drama about a “slap in the face”..

      “Who are we as other women, to determine what choices our friends or neighbors make?”.. You say this about the unborn, but what if one of the factors you mention above come into play when the child is 2 years old? are you still ok with a woman making a “choice” to kill them too? and if not, why? what’s the difference?

    • Cameron says:

      “It is a sad day when we as women have just had the clock rolled back 50 years.”

      So you are unaware that the only thing this decision did was send this issue back to the states? Abortion will still exist.

      “Please consider that even the most conservative of us find this chapter in women’s rights a slap in the face”

      The posts from the ladies that run this site beg to differ.
