Woman describes abortion “counseling”

One woman went to Planned Parenthood and was told she was pregnant. This is the “counseling” she received:

At her initial appointment with Planned Parenthood, she and her boyfriend were told they couldn’t have a baby because “you’re too young, you have no money, you aren’t married.

They said we couldn’t tell our parents because it would disappoint them. I said I would consider placing the baby for adoption. The counselor’s response was, ‘Oh, my God, you could never do that. That’s the cruelest thing you could ever do to a baby.’ I started crying and said, ‘I’m adopted.’ Her response was, ‘I don’t care; that’s still the cruelest thing to do to a child.’

Dunn said she and her boyfriend were given no information about fetal development, alternatives to abortion or the physical and emotional risks of abortion.

“There were no connotations of anything bad about the abortion, only about having the baby. I was crying and pacing around the room, and the counselor was yelling at me — she raised her voice — ‘You can’t have a baby.’ … There was not a drop of compassion; she was very cold.”

Woman who aborted down syndrome baby: “The psychological pain is enormous”

Rayna Rapp, who aborted her baby because the child had down syndrome:

“The psychological pain is enormous. Deciding to end the life of a fetus you wanted and carried for most of five months is no easy matter. The number of relatively late second trimester abortions performed for genetic reasons is very small. It seems an almost inconsequential number, unless you happen to be one of them.”

Quoted in Anna Bonavoglia The Choices We Made: 25 Women and Men Speak out about Abortion (New York: Random House, 1991) 160

Woman who conceived in rape: “my son is a gift from God”

A woman who was raped and conceived a child had the baby. She and her husband are raising him. She says:

“Our little boy may have been conceived in violence, but he is a gift from God — a delicious gift that filled the hole in our family that we never realized was there. He made us complete.

I’m so thankful to have been connected to other mothers who became pregnant by rape as well. We are survivors. Not victims. My son has healed me.

The pressure to abort from the medical community was extremely eye-opening to me. So many times I was told how “simple” it would be and how quickly I could just “get on with my life” once it was over. It was heartbreaking to have to repeatedly hear it. Even some friends thought keeping the baby was a mistake — that I wouldn’t be able to handle things emotionally. Every time we, as rape survivor mothers, share our stories, we are strengthened as we strengthen others”

Former pro-choicer speaks out about partial birth abortion

Former pro-choice activist Barbara Curtis wrote:

“Twenty–seven years ago, nine black-robed men handed feminists a triumph….

How about it, sisters? Especially those of you who rode the crest of the second wave with me: Did you ever dream that this was where we were headed? Did you ever dream we would call a politician a friend to women no matter how flagrantly he exploited them as long as he continued to back abortion on demand? Did you ever dream we would enter the realms of denial required to condone a procedure in which a perfectly viable infant is pulled feet first through the birth canal until all but her head is exposed, then stabbed in the skull to suck out her brains, delivered dead and sold to the highest bidder for body parts?

That’s “a certain type of late–term procedure,” according to modern feminists, who have twisted themselves like pretzels to pretend the dream did not turn into a nightmare.”

Barbara Curtis “The Sisterhood, 27 Years Later” The Washington Times, January 24, 2000

She is referring to the struggle to ban partial birth abortions, where the abortionist partly delivers the baby before killing him.

These abortions were banned, but late term D&E abortions are just as brutal.

Feminist on The View: I would vote for a rapist if he’s pro-choice

The following dialog took place on The View:

JOY BEHAR: Hillary is in a quandary in my opinion, because she’s talking about violence against women and sexual harassment and all that stuff and her husband has a checkered past to put it mildly, so she is in a bind…..

PAULA FARIS: There are accusations but there are three women that claim that he did things to them that they didn’t want. One of them is Paula Jones…. Juanita Broaddrick, Kathleen Willey. They say that he either exposed himself to them, raped them or groped them. These are three accusations….

BEHAR: It puts her in a bind. On the other hand, it’s her policies that really matter. Like, Republicans have voted against the Violence Against Women Act. Now, that to me, is more important than anything that Bill Clinton did or didn’t do because it’s what she’s going to vote for, how she’s going to lead the country that matters more than that. On the other hand, he is a dog. Let’s face it. …

People have to understand, it’s policy. Teddy Kennedy. Remember Chappaquiddick? Am I the oldest person in the room? Chappaquiddick. I mean, a girl drowns and he abandons her and she drowned and women still voted for Teddy Kennedy. Why? Because he voted for women’s rights. That’s why. That’s the bottom line of it in my opinion. I mean, I don’t like either one of them, to tell you the truth, Teddy or Bill. They’re both dogs as far as I’m concerned. But I still will vote for Bill Clinton because he votes in my favor.”

Pro-life demonstrator recalls being pelted with eggs

Randy Alcorn wrote about what happened when he was demonstrating with some pro-lifers at an abortion facility:

“At the last [rescue] clinic personnel poured water on us from above. A few girls kept circling the block in their car, pulling over to scream obscenities at us. They shouted incredible accusations, like, “The only reason you want to save these children is so you can rape them.” When their voices got hoarse and they ran out of dirty words (which took a long time), they came back with a carton of eggs and pelted us.”

Blob of tissue at four months?

Victoria from Pennsylvania told the story of her third abortion. Her Planned Parenthood counselor told her her child was a “blob of tissue”, even though she was 4 months along:

“My last abortion was done at four months. I felt there was no way out, I felt trapped. I was dropped off at Planned Parenthood, and went in alone, and petrified.

At that abortion mill, I was told that “it’s the best thing to do, you won’t feel anything” and it’s only “a blob of tissue.” The nurse escorted me to the “procedure room.” The room was cold, with a distinct smell. While waiting for the pain meds to kick in, I saw in the corner a large canister with a long tube and attached on the end was a very sharp object. Then I heard the sucking machine. The doctor took that tube with the sharp object attached and shoved it up inside of me with such force that I couldn’t breathe. The pain medicine never kicked in. I was crying, telling them the pain medicine isn’t helping. I felt everything. I begged the nurse to help me, to stop. The pain was unbelievable! No one listened. They just continued to suck my baby through that tube into pieces.”

Clinic escort pretends to be woman seeking abortion for media

Randy Alcorn, who participated in pro-life rescues, told the following story:

“A Minneapolis pastor told me of an incident at a rescue he observed firsthand. While rescuers were blocking access to an abortion clinic, news cameras arrived. A young woman then tried to make her way into the clinic and was peacefully prevented by the locked arms of the rescuers. She sobbed, right in front of the television cameras, “I’m just here for a Pap smear – why won’t you let me in?” obviously, this made ideal footage to discredit rescuing.

A little while later, the pastor saw the same woman wearing one of the clinic’s “escort” vests. She had been working for the abortion clinic all along! The entire drama had been staged and the woman was an actress, a phony. When the pastor pointed this out to the news crew, its members didn’t care. They said, “We have our story.” And they put it on the news that evening. Though they knew it was absolutely false, it served their purposes.”

19 years later, woman grieves for her aborted baby

Georgette Forney told the following story about her abortion in testimony before the Subcommittee on Science, Technology, and Space, and Transportation, March 3, 2004. Quoted from Healing through God’s Grace after Abortion:

 “In 1994, I was with a small group of women, and we were sharing our struggles with one another. One young woman expressed how she had been struggling to bond with her newborn son. She said that she had an abortion in college and felt it was why she couldn’t bond with her baby. She said she was going through abortion recovery counseling. I told her I had an abortion when I was 16, and it was no big deal. I said she simply needed to get over it.

 About six months later something strange happened, which forced me to recall that conversation. I was in my basement cleaning out boxes, and I found my yearbook from my junior year in high school. I picked it up and thought I’d take a quick stroll down memory lane.

 But something strange happened. Instead of opening the book and seeing the kid’s faces, I felt my baby in my arms. I knew instantly it was my child that I had aborted. I knew she was a little girl. I could feel her little bum in my right hand and her back and neck in my left. And I knew that I had missed out on parenting a wonderful person who would’ve brought a lot of joy into my life.

For the first time in 19 years, as I felt my baby’s presence in my arms, I realized the full impact of my abortion. And I began to weep. As I left I remember the conversation from six months earlier, and I immediately called that woman. I was crying, and I said I needed help. She came over immediately and sat with me while I wept and began grieving for my aborted baby.”

“There are probably some abortion providers who are less than admirable, but I don’t see that as the norm.”
