Pro-Lifers Respond to Nevin Shapiro Abortion Controversy

Categories: Sports
Among the claims made by Nevin Shapiro that Yahoo! Sports journalist Charles Robinson really had no business including in his story: allegations that Shapiro funded an abortion for a woman impregnated by a University of Miami football player. That aspect really has no impact on the school. It neither breaks that law nor any sort of NCAA rule because the medical procedure was provided to a woman unrelated to the school. It was irresponsibly added purely for shock value.

Robinson offers absolutely zero evidence to support the claim other than the word of a vindictive convicted scam artist. No financial records or other sources back up the claim. Even if it is true, there would be no evidence now to suggest that the UM player in question actually was the father.

Considering that abortion is a highly sensitive and personal matter, and considering that the factoid should have zero relevance to an NCAA investigation, Robinson should have made the judgment call to leave it out. Of course, he wanted the juiciest story possible.

So now pro-life activists have jumped on the story.

Here's Kelsey Hazzard, a University of Miami grad, writing for
Yes, violating NCAA rules is bad. Yes, this is probably going to cause serious problems for UM's football program. That's unfortunate, but in the grand scheme of things, it really does not matter. If you're going to hate on Shapiro, do it because he enabled the killing of a helpless unborn baby. That is a far greater crime than any recruiting shenanigans.

Baby Hurricane deserved more than a passing mention. He or she deserved a chance to live, grow, play childhood sports, and try to get into college.

History will judge us. And when it does, abortion will be our generation's greatest scandal.
Oh, boy.

Can we stop posting these opinions? I'm starting to really think less of UM alumni, and I'm their biggest fan. Dear Kelsey: We're you there? Did you see the abortion? Do you have photos? Do you have ANYTHING more than the word and accusations of a proven liar? If not, you're a complete dumbass, and deserve to be kicked out of Miami accordingly.

Drake, that was close to the single handedly being the most ignorant thing I've ever read. I wouldn't want anyone to be aborted, but you most definately should've been a blow job that got spit out.

Mama Shapiro should have aborted Nebish Shapiro.

Nevin Shapiro is the poster child for why abortion is necessary.

Some people need to be aborted. Why burden the world with a Nevin Shapiro?

Abortion is legal

Pro-Lifers should follow the Nevin Shapiro crimes and switch sides. Nevin Shapiro is the poster child for why abortion is legal.

.They're anti-woman. Simple as it gets, anti-woman. They don't like them. They don't like women. They believe a woman's primary role is to function as a brood mare for the state. Pro-life... You don't see many of these white anti-abortion women volunteering to have any black fetuses transplanted into their uterus's, do you? No, you don't see them adopting a whole lot of crack babies, do you? No, that might be something Christ would do.


Transfering a fetus from one uterus to another is not medically possible.  If it were, abortion would have been eradicated a long time ago.
