Now that the Supreme Court has overturned Roe v Wade, pro-aborts are in a convulsive frenzy. Their hysteria and panic are something we would expect if a killer comet was hurtling toward earth. All humor aside, the usual lies from network news anchors, celebrities, and politicians regarding abortion are bad enough but pale compared to the whoppers coming out now. These are inciting violence and causing undue fear and anxiety. If that isn't enough, celebrities and others are coming out of the woodwork adulating their abortions on social media.
First, women who suffer from ectopic pregnancies will NOT get arrested for terminating. The procedure is not considered an abortion.
Secondly, if a child dies in utero, the woman would not be forced to carry the child to term.
Thirdly, the overturning of Roe v Wade doesn't mean an abortion ban. It means the abortion decision is to be determined by each state. Unfortunately, some states will still allow abortions up through the ninth month.
Last but not least, the overturning of Roe v Wade deals with abortion only. It doesn't affect gay or mixed marriage, transgenderism, etc., nor does it minimalize the value of women or consider them chattel. No constitutional rights were removed or amended in any way.
My feelings are conflicted. I am thrilled the preborn will finally be protected in some states. But, had Roe v Wade not been enacted, I would have two children in their mid to late 40s. I would never have suffered alcoholism, depression, or been institutionalized for suicidal tendencies. I would never have had a tubal ligation at 30, self-inflicted punishment for the abortions.
My story is not unique. Thousands of others also fell for the lies perpetuated by the pro-abort community. We learned the hard way that abortion doesn't empower; it weakens. It does not bring freedom; it puts chains around the heart and soul. It not only takes the life of an innocent child but also pierces the heart and darkens the soul of those involved in the abortion decision. There might be a feeling of relief at first, but the adverse effects are not immediate. They will simmer for months, years, or even decades before they rear their ugly heads.
For those compelled to adulate their abortions ... I wonder how they would answer these questions?
1) Can you honestly say you don't think about the abortion, wonder what you would have had or if it looked like you?
2) Can you honestly say you don't look at other children from time to time and think, "Mine would have been that age."
3) What would you say if you could speak to your aborted child? How would you explain yourself, especially if you went on and had other children?
4) Would you be able to admit honestly sacrificing their life for yours was worth it?
5) If you had seen an ultrasound of your baby, would that have changed your mind?
6) Would you be able to say, in all honesty, that you walked out of the clinic feeling liberated and empowered?
7) Would you be able to say, in all honesty, that you have never felt guilt or remorse after aborting?
8) Would you be able to say, in all honesty, that if you turned back the hands of time, you would still abort?
They are tough questions. My answers are why I fight for the lives of the preborn and the hearts and souls of women and men considering abortion. It is also why I am involved in after-abortion healing programs, helping men and women understand and heal from the many negative emotions and behaviors stemming from abortion.
