Anne Hatheway has made a career out of using other peoples’ lines. Maybe she should have kept it that way.
During a recent appearance on The View, Hatheway was told it was the 16th anniversary of the release of The Devil Wears Prada. To most people, that’s meaningless, but to Hatheway it was the perfect opportunity to segue to Roe because she played a corporate go-getter and fear mongered that many sixteen-year-olds might not have the same chance of imitating her on-screen fictional character.
See what shs did there? If it sounds insane, that’s because it is. Take a look as Hatheway uses her platform to describe what overturning Roe means now in the woke Hollywood echochamber:
Anne Hathaway says abortion “can be another word for mercy.”
Excuse me, what?

We’re in the fight every day, we’re in the fight every minute. And you mentioned The Devil Wears Prada turning sweet sixteen. Some 16-year-old’s life has been irrevocably changed. Yeah, because of the current overturning of Roe v. Wade. And in this character, I played a young woman who was starting out her career. And when you are a young woman starting out your career, your reproductive destiny matters a great deal, of course, and I just It had just happened. And I just, I think about it all the time. I think we all think about it all the time, and and what its implications are, and what it means to live in a country. That puts us in this position.
You heard that right. The new buzzword is reproductive destiny. Hatheway continued:
And so if I were to play that role nowadays, I couldn’t take that for granted. I couldn’t take that freedom for granted the freedom of choice. And by the way, I’m not this is not a moral conversation about abortion. This is a practical conversation about women’s rights. And by the way, human rights because women’s rights are human rights, and the freedom that we all need to be able to choose and build our lives and have access to excellent health care.
The seals in the audience clapped, because of course they would, completely ignoring the fact that you cannot discuss human rights without framing the conversation around morality. I mean, if there is no such thing as morality, then how does a right even exist? It’s just made up. No, no, no; you see, abortion is just a practical matter.
However, the conversation really took a turn for the worse when Hatheway realized she was on a roll and getting some love from Joy, Whoopi, and the rest of all-female studio. That’s when Hatheway equation abortion to a merciful action.
May I just say one other thing, and just without going into too many details, my own personal experience with abortion, and I don’t think we talk about this enough. Abortion can be another word for mercy. You We don’t know. We don’t know it. It’s not a world in which we know that no two pregnancies are alike.
And it follows that no two lives are like that follows that no two conceptions are alike. So how can we have a law How can we have a point of view on this that says we must treat everything the same and where I come at it from is when you allow for choice, you allow for flexibility, which is what we need in order to be human so that anyway I just wanted to shoot for now. Especially for that it’s not it’s not set in stone. Just because you get pregnant doesn’t mean you get to keep that baby.
These people aren’t just deluded. They aren’t just narcissists. They aren’t just wrong. They are evil. To paraphrase Ronald Reagan, here’s another person advocating for abortion when she’s already been born.
