pro-life advocates have sharply condemned Jane Fonda’s “Murder” Comments While pro-choice groups have so far been silent about the Oscar winner’s suggestion that abortion opponents should be ostracized.
Ever since the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade last year, the fight for abortion has been waged at the state level, something Fonda is extremely passionate about as expressed on Friday’s installment of “The View.”
Fonda said, “We’ve had decades of experience of having agency over our own bodies to be able to determine when and how many children to have. We know what it feels like, we know it’s within our control.” What have you done for life?” “We’re not going back, I don’t care what the laws are. We’re not going back.”
When asked by co-host Joy Behr what could be done “besides marching and protesting”, Fonda replied, “Well, I’ve thought about murder.” Arousing laughter across the table, Behar insisted to the audience that Fonda was “just kidding”, prompting a long glare from the Hollywood icon.
Fonda later told Fox News Digital that his comments were “obviously” in jest.
Lila Rose, the founder of Live Action, criticized Fonda, saying that she was advocating “killing to save the killing of children”.
Rose tweeted, “Pray and work with passion against this darkness.”

Prominent pro-life advocate Abby Johnson told Fox News Digital Fonda that he was not “joking” as Behar claimed to his audience.
“The irony is that a woman defending the killing of the unborn would call for the killing of those defending the unborn. That is exactly what we can and should expect from the Left. They have no dignity for any human life ,” Johnson said.
Kristen Hawkins, president of Students for Life of America, accused Fonda of saying that “people who are inconvenient” should be killed.
Hawkins told Fox News Digital, “Forget ‘safe, legal and rare,’ the ‘abortion’ mentality makes anyone wish death on an unwanted person, even if they’re in office.” “Getting rid of people for the sole and shallow reason that you don’t want them around has led to the deaths of millions, and Jane Fonda has shown once again that her so-called interest in human rights is only for those who who think like them.”

“It is unfortunate that for pro-abortionists like Jane Fonda, murder is a comfortable solution to unplanned pregnancies. Whether inside the womb or outside the womb, taking an innocent life is never an acceptable solution,” Jim Daly, President of Focus On The family told Fox News Digital.
Pro-life lawmakers have also raised alarm bells over Fonda’s comments.
Representative Anna Paulina Luna, R-Fla., said she “has notified Capitol Police” because “we are taking this threat very seriously” because the actress did not clarify whether she was joking.
Luna tweeted, “Calling for the assassination of pro-life politicians is not only dangerous but it is incredibly sick. It is targeted and can seriously hurt someone.”

“The hosts claimed that Fonda deserves a Nobel Prize and mocked her heinous comments,” said Rep. Byron Donalds, R-Fla. reacted. “To pro-life Americans across our great country, stay strong and know that I will always have your back on Capitol Hill.”
“Excitement, much?” Rape. Chip Roy, R-Texas, wondered.
“I regularly get death threats because of the nasty women on The View and the things they say about me. Scene, hosts, producers, networks, advertisers, and all responsible for death threats, attacks, and possible assassinations of pro-life politicians and activists. I’m reporting it,” Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., wrote.
Fox News Digital contacted the nation’s most prominent pro-choice groups, including the Center for Reproductive Rights, the National Abortion Federation, Planned Parenthood Federation for America, the Women’s March, the National Women’s Law Center and Ultraviolet. None of them responded to requests for comment.

In a statement to Fox News Digital, Fonda insisted that her comments were not serious.
Fonda told Fox News Digital, “Although women’s reproductive rights are a very serious issue and extremely important to me, my comments on The View were apparently made in jest.” “My body language and tone made it clear to the people in the room – and to the onlookers – that I was using exaggeration to make my point.”
Fonda said, “Women across the country face real threats when it comes to our bodies, and people lose faith in our mission to protect women when other issues are real, rather than a real problem.” Opts to focus and pass the jokes.”
