Teen Mom stars Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra have never been shy about their pro-life beliefs. The couple famously chose life when they decided to give their biological daughter Carly to wonderful adoptive parents who could give her a stable life when they got pregnant at 16. Just recently, they traveled to Ireland to speak at the Love Life Festival.
Never one to shy from stirring the pot when she believes in something, Catelynn has vehemently defended her anti-abortion stance in the past via social media. Now that she and Ty are trying to conceive (yay!!), the subject must be especially on her mind, because the reality star took to Instagram on Friday to post a pic that is either pro-human or anti-endangered species, depending on how you look at it.
She added the caption, "Our priorities are so messed up things need to be changed!! How can they protect a eagle egg but NOT a unborn child? That's whack!! #chooselife #forall #quitkilling"
I cannot believe that Catelynn wants to destroy Eagle eggs!! Doesn't she know those things are protected? Even though they're not endangered anymore, the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act does indeed fine up to a quarter million dollars and two years in the slammer for even "disturbing" a bald or golden eagle egg.
Meanwhile it's totally cool in any state to end the life of your unborn child, no questions asked, with taxpayer money (thanks Obamacare!). That photo above is what a fetus looks like around the time that many women opt for abortion.
Now, you can make the argument that it's unsavory to point these things out, or to inform women as to the shape of that "clump of cells" they're having removed. I mean, it's not nice to tell people they're fat either, even if it is the truth. So fine. Go ahead and attack Catelynn Lowell for sharing information like "abortion stops a beating heart," because these women having abortions already know the painful truth of what they're doing, right? Why point it out? It's like, a million times worse than telling an obese person they're fat, right? Thank you, Captain Obvious.
Eh, I gotta side with Catelynn on this one. Until abortion providers like Planned Parenthood stop lying about fetal development to coerce women into having abortions they might not otherwise pursue ... pro-life advocates are going to speak out about it -- even ones as adorable and lovable as Catelynn and Tyler.
Do you think it's rude for Catelynn to make such controversial statements about abortion?
