When a Pro-Choicer Becomes Pro-Life

Tagged Under : ,

This is just a quick post and I know it’s an old story, but I love to read and share the stories of abortion workers who turn pro-life. I think it’s just so powerful to see someone who used to support and help with the performance of abortions to realize the error of their ways and change their views. I also think they’re valuable to read for two reasons. One, it helps us learn more about the real mentality of pro-choicers and of Planned Parenthood workers and etc. And two, because it can often provide insights about what techniques do and do not work in changing people’s hearts to be pro-life. So here’s a story for you to read about a former abortion worker who turned pro-life. Leave me your thoughts on it!

I’ve written a lot on abortion and you can read one woman’s story, about forced abortions,  about abortion clinics covering up statutory rape, about abortion being used as a cover-up, about whether or not abortion should be a woman’s right, about the safe, legal, and rare myth, and about who Jane Roe in Roe v. Wade was.

Safe, Legal, and Rare

Tagged Under : ,

Isn’t that the abortion advocates line? Safe, legal, and rare?

Well I can tell you first off that it isn’t that rare. Personally I know at least 5 people who had an abortion (or were the guy in an abortion situation). I have met at least three other people who had abortions (or were the guy in an abortion situation) who I don’t personally know. And these are just the ones I know of. That doesn’t seem very rare to me.

And what about safe? As I’ve mentioned before, abortion carries risks, both physical and psychological. It can even lead to death. Not just where it is illegal but in places where it is legal too. This blog post here talks about a few of those cases where legalized abortion resulted in death (though certainly not all).

So I guess in the end all they made it was legal. And that’s not something to celebrate at all.

I’ve written a lot on abortion and you can read one woman’s story, about forced abortions,  about abortion clinics covering up statutory rape, about abortion being used as a cover-up, about whether or not abortion should be a woman’s right, about a pro-choicer who became pro-life, and about who Jane Roe in Roe v. Wade was.

Jane Roe of Roe v. Wade

Tagged Under : ,

I told you all I was still going to write about my politics some of the time, because it is still something I very much enjoy, so here’s another post for you.

I want to talk about Jane Roe of Roe v. Wade. Why? Because I think one of the most powerful testimonies out there against abortion are those who have had an abortion and are now pro-life. Because if you’ve ever met one of them personally, the hurt and pain and sorrow you see there are so great. And because these are people who have thought that abortion would make their lives better, that it would fix their problems. Instead, it didn’t. It left them hurting and their child dead.

But back to the point of Jane Roe of Roe v. Wade. Do you know that she never actually had an abortion? That she is now pro-life and speaking against the decision that was made on her behalf? Doesn’t it make you think that the original person who wanted an abortion so badly that she was willing to try to get the law changed is now pro-life? What does that say? To me, it sends a powerful message that abortion isn’t right.

I have to show you her video, where she talks about how making that case was the biggest mistake of her life. She actually calls it that. It’s pretty amazing, I think, that her heart was so changed. What if we could change everyone’s heart this way?

There is so much more to the story though, other than just that short snippet. But the next video I’m going to post, which is old, but it’s worth it if you take the time to watch it, is more of the story fleshed out. It’s almost half an hour-long, so I totally get it if you don’t have time to watch it. But if you’re interested in hearing more of Norma’s story, it’s a fascinating thing to watch. There is a bit of decision theology, to warn you, but it’s still a fascinating thing to watch.

So now you know, if you watched the second one, the full story of how Roe v. Wade happened. Sad isn’t it? I feel like they took advantage of Norma, that she wasn’t given all the facts, that they just used her to make their point. I feel a lot of times that what’s the abortion industry still does today, especially in terms of women not being given all the facts.

That’s all I want to say on Roe v. Wade at this time, though I do have to talk about one other thing. I found this video while I was looking on YouTube for these other two and it was just bizarre. I’m not going to link to it, because I don’t want to promote her further. But it was this girl talking about how she had her abortion and it was the best thing and she was just so happy and cheery about it. And what really got to me was when she said it was “the most ethical and humane thing” she could have done. She never said her reasons for having an abortion, but I got the sense from how she answered some of the questions that she had it because it was inconvenient for her to be pregnant (when she’s asked at the end if she would have another one, she says she doesn’t know but that she would probably consider it because it doesn’t line up with her goals). It broke my heart. That’s what choice looks like apparently. Babies are such blessings, even when they’re unexpected, even when they don’t line up with your goals for you life. They don’t deserve abortion. And women deserve real solutions to their problems, not abortion.

To read more about abortion you could read about one woman’s story, forced abortions, abortions clinics covering up statutory rape, abortions as a cover-up, whether or not abortions are a woman’s right, a pro-choicer becoming pro-life, and the myth of safe, legal, and rare.

Abortion Clinics Cover Up Statutory Rape

Tagged Under : ,

I know I have linked to and talked about this in the past, about how abortion clinics are willing to cover up statutory rape and even linked to a blog post with this video before, but I thought I would link to it again, because this time, along with the video, it has full audio and written transcripts from all of the Planned Parenthood clinics called in Illinois, all of which covered it up. I thought some of you would be interested in these. Hope you find them eye-opening.

I’ve written plenty about abortion before including forced abortions, abortion as a coverup, one woman’s experience with abortion, whether or not abortion is a woman’s right, when a pro-choicer becomes pro-life, whether abortion is really safe, legal and rare, and who Jane Roe in Roe v. Wade was.

Abortion as a Coverup

Tagged Under :

I think this one is hard for me to write, because I’d like to believe it doesn’t happen. I’d like to think that no one takes advantage of little girls. I’d like to think that childhood is still considered special. I’d like to think that someday if I have kids and happen to have little girls, that I could trust people around me to remember that they are little girls and not women.

But the abortion industry is not someone to be trusted about it. They have a history of covering up statutory rape, which is where someone 18 or older has sex with someone 17 or younger. An undercover sting found that about 91 percent of abortion clinics will try and cover this up, even though in every state, they’re considered mandatory reporters and have to report even suspected abuse.

I wish that the pro-choice side would admit that they are not looking out for women. Because helping the abusers of women (little girls) get away with it, is not pro-woman. It’s harmful. Clearly, most people feel that statutory rape is wrong or states wouldn’t have these laws on the books. The scenario they posited was a 13 year old with a 22 year old. That’s almost a 10 year age difference and most people at 13 are still in 8th grade. If someone would like to challenge me and say that there’s a good reason that they shouldn’t be reporting that to the authorities, let me know, because I can’t think of a single one. It’s wrong. The abortion clinics through this are allowing young girls to be victimized.

I’m going to link to another blog post on this one because it has two videos that I want you to watch. To me, the first one is the most important to watch, though they are both important to watch. The first one shows news coverage on it, where they both play parts of these tapes and also try and get answers from the clinics in them as well as play them for lawmakers (pro-life and pro-choice) who are appalled that this sort of practices goes on. I know these are a bit old, but recent news has shown us that this is still going on.

Abortion Clinics Willing to Cover Up Child Rape

I think that in accordance with what I posted previously, about how abortion is not a woman’s right, I want to share the stories of some of those women who it has hurt. So from time to time, I’ll be posting stories to share with you, probably usually from other blogs.

Here’s the first one for you, from the blog Stand for Life.

Abortion: A Woman’s Right?

Tagged Under : ,

I want to write this post and first off, I want to say that I know people who have had abortions and I know what tough situations people have been in. I have nothing but mercy and love and compassion and a desire to help women. That’s why I also think that abortion is wrong. I refuse to be called anti-woman and I refuse to be a person who says, “I’m personally opposed, but it’s their choice.” I am a feminist and I hope after reading this blog article you will understand why. I believe that being a feminist is not about making women equal with men because equal would mean that we had no differences, but celebrating what makes women unique and never turning down a woman because she is a woman. Equality is not always the best way because it doesn’t recognize that there are genuine differences between men and women.

And I think that abortion is not a woman’s right. On top of what it does to the baby, there is a lot of evidence that abortion is harmful to women. I’m going to lay out some of the facts, just know that this won’t be the last time I blog about this issue and know that I will bring it up again periodically with new information.

Here is my proof that shows that abortion is bad for women – in easy to read bullet format.

1) Among women with unintended pregnancies, those who abort versus those who carry their pregnancy to term, 30 percent of these women (who abort) have all the symptoms of Generalized Anxiety Disorder, according to the Journal of Anxiety Disorders.(Source)

2) According to the American Journal of Orthopsychiatry, when they study the California health care system, women who aborted who made mental health claims was 17 percent higher than those who carried their children to term. (Source)

3) Another two articles from the British Medical Journal and the Southern Medical Journal, the death by suicide risk is 2-6 times higher for women who chose to abort versus those who have given birth. (Source)

4)Abortion, according to the Obstetrical and Gynecological Survey increases the risk of Placenta Previa by 50 percent in future pregnancies. What’s Placenta Previa, you ask? It is a condition where the placenta attaches to your cervix, covering it either in part or in whole. It is a risk to both baby AND mother, since it can cause uncontrollable, heavy bleeding. (Source 1 2)

5)The Center for Disease Control (CDC) estimates that 1 in 100,000 women dies as a result of abortion. Now this, overall seems low. Except for the fact that Obstetrical and Gynecological Survey found that they were largely underreported because reporting to the CDC is not mandatory. (Source 1 2)

6) The number of women who have abortions for health reasons? 2 percent. (Source)

7) A study done by the Journal of Social Issues reported 81 percent of women felt victimized by their abortions, along with the fact that they felt coerced or that they felt not informed about alternatives and/or the procedure. (Source)

8.) Another way it harms women is that it gives men more power over them. One study found that 40 percent of women reported their boyfriends/husbands/partners pressured them into the abortions. Another has found as high as 80 percent of women felt pressure from people in their lives (parents included). (Source Source 2 Source 3)

9) The rate of ectopic pregnancies has risen dramatically since abortion was made legal and that the risk is twice as high in women who have had an abortion and increases with more abortions. 12 percent of all maternal related pregnancy deaths are because of ectopic pregnancies. (Source)

10) A woman has a 30 percent chance of developing Pelvic Inflammatory Disease after an abortion. This can lead to fever and infertility among other things (Source)

11) Abortion increases a woman’s risk of cervical cancer, ovarian cancer, and liver cancer. (Source)

12) Above and beyond that, abortion increases the risk of breast cancer. (Source 1 Source 2)

13) “Dozens of studies tie abortion to a rise in sexual dysfunction, aversion to sex, loss of intimacy, unexpected guilt, extramarital affairs, traumatic stress syndrome, personality fragmentation, grief responses, child abuse and neglect, and increase in alcohol and drug abuse. An Elliot Institute study indicates that women who abort are five times more likely to abuse drugs.” (Source)

14) “Post-abortion specialist David Reardon writes, “In a study of post-abortion patients only 8 weeks after their abortion, researchers found that 44% complained of nervous disorders, 36% had experienced sleep disturbances, 31% had regrets about their decision, and 11% had been prescribed psychotropic medicine by their family doctor.” (Source)

15) Mortality is 2.95 higher in abortions than in full term pregnancies (Source)

16) 154 percent higher risk of death by suicide after abortion (Source)

17) According to a New Zealand Study, “women who have abortions were twice as likely to drink alcohol at dangerous levels and three times as likely to be addicted to illegal drugs” after an abortion. (Source)

One notable person who is speaking out about abortion is Abby Johnson.

Canada is defunding Planned Parenthood.

I want to sum up with a quote from one of the sources that I listed. “If a nation as rich as ours were truly committed to women’s well-being and equality, we would look for real solutions to the underlying causes of abortion – including the serious challenge women face of balancing work or school and family, the disrespect for motherhood, the feminization of poverty, and society’s eugenic distaste for the imperfection and vulnerability of the disabled.” (Source)

Lastly, if you have had an abortion and you are suffering the negative consequences of it, there is hope and help. Check it out.
