Naim Darrechi dared to tell his millions of followers that when it comes to abortion, there are two lives involved.
Naim Darrechi knew he was going to create controversy among his 26 million followers, but he didn’t hesitate to stir up the hornet’s nest. On May 19, he posted a video in which he said he had been asked, “Naim, what do you think about abortion?” and off he went.
“An abortion is interrupting a life,” he said. “When a woman is pregnant, if she doesn’t take anything, if she doesn’t abort, the natural cycle is going to make a life emerge.”
To those who are in favor of abortion because they say that “the fetus does not suffer. It is a thing (…) that does not suffer,” the TikToker replied, “It’s not the question of whether it suffers or not. The question is that a life is being taken away. A life that society has disregarded.”
Darrechi was aware that he was going to be showered with criticism: “I’m sure [they’ll make] some negative comments for thinking what I think, but no one is going to tell me that an abortion isn’t taking a life,” he replied.
