An "abortion storyteller" who works with the pro-abortion organization We Testify has left the internet angry after saying pregnancy termination is “an act of self-love”. Sarah Lopez was giving testimony at the House Oversight Committee hearing on Wednesday, July 13, when she made the statement.

The Senate Judiciary Committee hearing began after Roe v Wade was overturned by the Supreme court in June. In her testimony, the Democrat witness said, “My abortion was the best decision I ever made. It was an act of self-love,” before asserting, “I am here today to make sure that everybody who currently needs an abortion, who has had an abortion, or will need an abortion, is not alone no matter what the state tries to force upon us.”

Who is Sarah Lopez?

The website of We Testify describes Lopez as someone who's keen to share her story because she loves “everyone who has had abortions and I want them to know they're not alone no matter what led them to their decision.” She also has a piece of advice for those seeking abortion. Lopez writes, “Whether or not you need help paying for your procedure and/or getting to your appointment(s), get to know your state's abortion funds! They offer resources, support, and community for anyone seeking an abortion.”

Lopez blames “patriarchal society” for making women believe “our bodies are not ours”. She adds, “I have NEVER regretted my abortion. But it took me a long time to reclaim my sense of self. And if you're worried about what your family will think of you, don't feel like you have to share it with them. Because there's a whole community of beautiful people who will affirm you and make you feel loved for doing what's best for yourself.”

When Republican Congressman Ralph Norman of South Carolina asked Lopez if she believes claiming the life of a “perfectly healthy child” is fine, she replied: “I do not agree with the basis of that question, but I do believe abortion is health care.”

Lopez also has a LinkedIn account that states that she is a Client Coordinator at Jane's Due Process, a pro-abortion non-profit that's currently not in service after the June 24 ruling. She has earlier served as Program Coordinator at Fund Texas Choice.

Meanwhile, her recent remark has attracted a lot of attention online with conservative commentator Allie Beth Stuckey tweeting: “‘My abortion was an act of self-love.’ She’s correct. She loved herself, her convenience, and her comfort so much that she was willing to kill her child for them. That’s why the Bible says godless people in the end days will be ‘lovers of self.’” A critic slammed, “Exactly. She chose herself over her child. Abortion is selfish. Shall we say it is ‘privilege’ over a smaller, weaker human?? 🤔” “I honestly feel very sad for her. Some day, maybe 20 years from now, she's going to awaken and fully understand what she's done, what could've been, and the finality of never being able to go back. I don't know how people, who will face this level of anguish, will carry on,” another critic wrote.

A user stated, “Abortion is genocide and infanticide. The American Abortion Holocaust has killed close to 64 million American children http://numberofabortions.com Abortionists are worse than the Nazis, who didn't abort their own healthy German Germanic babies. Abortion violates the Right to Life.” Political columnist Benny Johnson added, “These people are demonic. ‘My abortion was the best decision I ever made. It was an act of self love.’ Who in their right mind could even say that?”
