In response to Wednesday’s mass shooting at Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, Israeli reporter Becky Griffin tweeted out that alleged shooter Nikolas Cruz wouldn’t have had to chance to kill 17 students if his mother had aborted him instead of putting him up for adoption.
“Woman puts baby up for adoption, he grows up to be a violent young man who will spend the rest of his life in prison for a mass murder. Tell me more about how abortions are wrong,” Griffin wrote, in a tweet that went viral on Thursday.
According to a report in Breitbart, the former MTV personality’s tweet was in reference to an Associated Press report that Nikolas and his brother had been living with a family friend after the death of his adoptive parents.
Outraged Twitter users blasted Griffin for her insensitivity, which she answered by tweeting, “This drew so much attention by ppl jumping to conclusions like I think adoption is wrong, when all I said was that a woman who was clearly unfit to have a child — did — did NOT raise him — and maybe it could have turned out better if she could have made a CHOICE.”
She further defended herself by posting a link to a refuted study of how abortions reduce crime.
