For some reason, Hollywood celebs LOVE showing their extreme stupidity in Twitter threads. It’s obvious why their shows are scripted.
Alex Falcone is a LA based actor, comedian and writer. Falcone tweeted a “change of tone” from his regular dumb tweets on Twitter in lieu of the leaked Supreme Court draft for the Roe V. Wade overturn. Falcone seems to think people are “lying” and said “I don’t think anybody actually believes fetuses are people.”
This is a change of tone for me on here but I don’t think anybody actually believes fetuses are people. I think they’re lying. There are almost 1,000,000 miscarriages each year in America, it happens to almost everybody. But we’re not constantly getting invited to the funerals.— Alex Falcone (@alex_falcone) May 5, 2022
Anyone who follows the science can see that a “fetus” is a person. At the moment of conception, when sperm fertilizes an egg, a new set of unique DNA is created and begins to grow into a baby. How much clearer does Falcone need the science to be?
In the same initial tweet, Falcone completely disrespected and disregarded the significance and pain women experience regarding miscarriages. “There are almost 1,000,000 miscarriages each year in America, it happens to almost everybody. But we’re not constantly getting invited to the funerals.”
We rarely talk about miscarriages even though they happen to basically everybody you know. They’re devastating, but not because of souls. Nobody talks about how they can’t wait to be reunited with their fetus in heaven because they don’t actually believe that.— Alex Falcone (@alex_falcone) May 5, 2022
This is completely insensitive.
Abortion is a conscious decision to intentionally end the life of a child in utero. Miscarriage is an accidental death of a child in utero. One is on purpose, the other is not. No woman prays to have a miscarriage.
When a mother finds out she had a miscarriage she says to her husband, “We lost the baby.” She does not say “We lost the fetus.” Falcone added another tweet saying “Nobody talks about how they can’t wait to be reunited with their fetus in heaven because they don’t actually believe that.”
Why are their miscarriages so devastating then Mr. Falcone? Why do women mourn the loss of their child after miscarriages? Why do they cry thinking about the lives they had planned to live? Parents look for ways to cope and hope and pray that they will one day reunite with their children.
Miscarriage is heartbreaking. Abortion is heartbreaking. BUT, they are NOT the same thing.
This is some next level pro-choice mansplaining. Downplay the pain of miscarriage to defend killing babies— Lila Rose (@LilaGraceRose) May 5, 2022
Other than prompting a disgustingly insensitive twitter thread, Falcone was flat out wrong.
