Leigh-Allyn Baker, a former Hollywood actress best known for playing Amy Duncan in the Disney TV series “Good Luck Charlie,” recently discussed how she came to support abortion rights.
“My stance used to be that I believed the propaganda that was given by the media,” the actress told Christine Yeargin, host of the “Speak Out” podcast.
“It was nothing that I would ever do myself, … but I kind of fell in line with the idea that a bunch of men in Washington, D.C., don’t have the right to make that decision for our bodies,” Baker said.
“And then I started learning more about the actual process of it. And I started learning more about how the baby actually does feel pain and moves away from the needle and the brutality of the actual experience for the child. And the fact that that is a child,” she continued.“So yeah, I’m pro-life.”
Following that, Baker stated that she had no ill will toward women who have had abortions.
According to her, she has “nothing but compassion for people who have been through that,” some of whom are her friends.
“It doesn’t mean that I consider myself worthy of sitting in a chair of judgment upon them. Because I don’t,” she said. “I just know that it’s a baby.”
Baker later touched on the differences between men and women — and their equality in the eyes of the law.
“We are not the same as men,” she said. “We are given this gift of having life grow in our body and being a vessel to bring it here onto this planet.
“So we’re not the same, but we do have equal rights. But, you know, that’s like saying that a man has the right to kill a baby too. Does a man have a right to walk around and kill a baby? No, they don’t.”
In order to combat the pro-abortion mentality that is prevalent in Hollywood, where Baker used to work, there is still a lot of work to be done, Baker said Yeargin.
She cited instances like children born as a result of rape as examples of how the pro-abortion side utilizes “extremely rare circumstances” to support abortion.
Less than 1% of abortions were caused by rape, according to a poll published in 2004 by the pro-abortion Guttmacher Institute. In May, the World Population Review reported a 1% figure.
The Guttmacher Institute also stated in a 2005 analysis that less than 0.5% of abortions were caused by incest.
In 2021, Baker gained notoriety for opposing vaccine and mask mandates while appearing at a school board meeting.
She referred to herself as a “California refugee,” claiming that she left Hollywood and relocated to Tennessee in search of “freedom.”
