President of ministry speaks about pregnancies conceived in rape

Juda Myers president of Choices4Life, who works with women pregnant from rape, wrote this letter:

“Many would say abortion is necessary in cases of rape because that child will add to the trauma of the female. But that just isn’t the truth. Having spoken to almost 300 women with rape conception experiences I have found that abortion additionally traumatizes them, while giving birth begins the healing process.

I first heard that babies healed mothers pregnant after rape, from my own mother who was raped by eight men. She was forced to place me for adoption because the family and doctors pressured her to abort, completely unable to understand how a woman could want a child like me. She prayed for our reunion for 48 years and when I found her she was holding a picture of me at three months. She said my face did not remind her of her rapist’s, but reminded her that God had intervened after her attack to give her a precious baby that only He could give. She was even able to forgive her attackers.

One woman told me, “A man stole my body and society is trying to steal my baby.” Too many times people give the baby to the rapist calling them the “rapist’s baby” or “demon seeds” but another mother said speaking of her own rape conceived baby, “She was never his. She was always mine!” Society is traumatizing mothers of rape conception babies beyond the rape.

It is such an assault on humanity when society verbally, emotionally and physically attacks females who want to keep their babies conceived in rape. The pressure is many times unbearable. One 14-year-old had to be homeschooled because of the torment from her classmates. These classmates spray-painted the girls home with obscenities even though her assailant was in prison… The abuse was relentless by family, friends, law-enforcement and even healthcare workers.… It’s not the baby that is causing the trauma but those who wish to end the life of the rape conceived baby. Females are called liars because “no one wants a rapist’s baby.” The “choice” crowd doesn’t offer any choice but abortion.

A former police officer told me that she knew the crime of murder was worse than rape. She aborted her baby after rape being pressured by coworkers. “I’m worse than the rapists. They let me live but I turned on my own innocent baby… I killed my baby.” She was inconsolable. Of 14 women I’ve spoken with who aborted after rape, 12 were suicidal, three attempted and failed and the two others justify their abortions two months earlier with “it’s not a baby.” Anniversaries of the abortion will tell a different story. There are so many stories that prove giving life is better than taking it…

The mother of a 10-year-old contacted CHOICES4LIFE when her daughter was about four months pregnant. This 10-year-old is a great example of the strength of these young moms. With no complications at 11 years old she gave birth to a healthy baby girl. While she too had to be removed from school because of bullying, she returned to school and is now making straight A’s and excelling in sports. Her mother is raising the baby while the 11-year-old is happy with no regrets for choosing life. We are cheating females from having better solutions than abortion especially in cases of rape.…

The entire world sees rape conception as a curse. Some cultures kill the females for being raped and pregnant. There has never been logical thinking concerning rape conception even in the most advanced societies. Of 100 children of rape conception 98% were excelling in their contribution to society. Doctor, lawyer, humanitarian, chemist, Marines, Navy, firefighter, 10 pastors, teachers, worship leaders, professors, international speakers, and founders of nonprofits completely disproving the myth that children become the men who raped their mothers.”

Woman describes trauma after her abortion

From a post-abortion woman. She wrote this 15 years after her abortion:

“For 15 years, I have lived with the shame and guilt of my abortion. It has kept me from bonding with friends and robbed me of my self-esteem. Throughout all of these years, to be happy made me feel tremendous guilt. I have never felt that I deserved anything good in my life. In my punishment, I never allowed myself to experience true joy. Any blessing that had come after my abortion, I couldn’t enjoy to the fullest. I’ve been convinced I didn’t deserve any of them.…

Anxiety attacks, depression, guilt and shame were just a few of the repercussions of my decision to abort…

For all these years, I have hated my boyfriend, the doctor, the clinic workers, and even the pro-lifers for what I did. I wondered where they were on that Saturday morning. Why weren’t they there screaming at me, begging me not to go in.”

Pro-Abortion advocate talks about change in the way women view abortion

Judith Arcana was an abortionist before Roe v. Wade with the organization JANE and is currently a pro-abortion activist. She talks about how women seem to have different feelings about abortion now than they did when it was first legalized:

“The young American women I have encountered, and those asked in surveys, are now starting to say something they never used to say in the 60s and 70s. Now they say ‘I think abortion should be legal, but I could never have one’….with abortion, something has changed the other way, gone backwards, so to speak. A US generation has grown up in a context where abortion is a negative word. Granted, abortion was never a jolly subject, but simply thinking and talking about abortion is once again something people do not want to do, something fraught with guilt and fear and shame.”

Abortionist: Abortion is “violence”

Abortionist Lisa Harris describes the violence inherent in second trimester abortions:

“Currently, the violence and, frankly, the gruesomeness of abortion is owned only by those who would like to see abortion (at any time in pregnancy) disappear . . . The pro-choice movement has not owned or owned up to the reality of the fetus, or the reality of fetal parts. Since the common anti-abortion stance is that the fetus has a right to life, those who support abortion access necessarily deny such a right. However, in doing so, the fetus is usually neglected entirely, becomes unimportant, nothing …

It is worth considering for a moment the relationship of feminism to violence. In general feminism is a peaceful movement. It does not condone violent problem-solving, and opposes war and capital punishment. But abortion is a version of violence. What do we do with that contradiction?”

Woman describes her experience at abortion clinic

Victoria, who compiled a book of women’s stories about about abortion, wrote:

“I telephoned the clinic and was told by the clinic that because I was so early in my pregnancy, I wasn’t carrying a “real” baby. Her exact words were, “it’s just a blob of cells. “It” hasn’t formed into a human being.”

6 week preborn baby

6 week preborn baby. Surgical abortions are not performed before this time in many clinics

The woman on the other end insisted that I have the “procedure” performed right away, the sooner, the better. She always referred to it as the “procedure” never mentioning the word abortion. She said I was only “terminating a pregnancy.

She instructed me to bring cash only to my visit. Checks or credit cards were not accepted.”

At the clinic:

“When my fictitious name was called, I quickly got up and went into the first of three rooms. This was the office of the cashier. She sat me down, shut the door and matter-of-factly asked, “You have your money with you?… I need the full $350, cash only, as I told you over the phone. Remember, if you change your mind while you’re on the table, you don’t get your money back. There are no refunds here. Do you understand this? I nodded again…

I asked again, “Should I really do this?” She seemed nervous. Maybe I was about to change my mind and she wouldn’t make her “quota” for the day.

I guess she wanted to reassure me when she said, “Look, when you leave this place, never think of this day again. Just forget about it. You’ll be fine and you can always have more babies later. You’re too early in your pregnancy to even think of this as a real pregnancy, let alone a real baby. Remember and never forget, we’re only terminating a pregnancy.”…

It was obvious she’d done this before. Her “speech” was so rehearsed…

They asked me not to speak to any of the other women. It might be too uncomfortable for them… We were all sharing the same fate, yet none of us could even look at one another.”

Abortionist speaks on perforation of uterus

Abortionist Henry Morgentaler on the danger of perforating the uterus during an abortion:

“What happens during dilatation is that the doctor tries to widen the diameter of the cervical canal leading to the uterine cavity by pushing metal dilators through it. As he does this he encounters muscular resistance. A very thin dilator might pass through the cervical canal easily; however, as they progressively increase in thickness, the resistance of the muscles holding the cervix closed increases correspondingly. The doctor overcomes this resistance by steady pressure until it gives way and the dilator slips into the uterine cavity. Occasionally, the resistance gives way suddenly and the dilator is then propelled into the uterus with a force which might bring it in too far, thus perforating the uterine wall. In pregnancy, the uterine wall softens considerably and thins out in certain places; if the dilator hits a weakened spot, it might go through it. If the doctor is unaware of this, and often he has no way of knowing, he will pursue the dilatation which will then enlarge the perforation.

When the opening necessary for the abortion has attained the appropriate diameter, the doctor will try to evacuate the uterus but may find that no material is forthcoming because his instruments, instead of being in the uterine cavity, are elsewhere, usually in the abdominal cavity. If the aspiration cannula or sharp curette is used, it may damage the small intestine or rupture a major blood vessel with immediate shock a likely occurrence. Major surgery is then needed to repair the damaged abdominal organs.”

Woman describes hating sex after abortion

Author Luc Boltanski interviewed a woman named Lillian, about what happened after her abortion:

“Afterword, you’re sort of disgusted with the guy, so you don’t want to see him, I don’t know why, but…in my case, with the one I was with at the time, and he was serious, I was fed up with him, sexually I mean, with him, I couldn’t do it anymore. It was purely sexual. I mean that having sex was painful; it really hurt, it was really so uninteresting that I don’t even understand how girls my age who are at that point and think about nothing but sex… It’s so worthless, really there’s no point, because for me, it hurt, it really was bad, but okay, fine, if it doesn’t hurt them, I have the one friend who went through the same thing and had the same reaction as me, but not the other one, she kept on liking it. For me, it’s awful, it hurts, it’s not even fun at all. But the problem is that the guys ask you for it. Indeed, it turns me off, it’s really a chore, but he keeps asking for it. If he doesn’t get it he’s in a bad mood… Well, I can do this to him for a month, but at the end of the month he’ll say to me: “Come on, we better do something about this”, because every night I’m looking for an excuse, because it turns me off, I don’t want it.”

Doctor describes case where fetal testing was wrong – baby was born healthy

Frank Pedreira, MD tells the following story:

“… A 27-year-old woman named Laura, with a history of excellent health, who became pregnant for the first time. Her husband Bill was 29 years old and also in good health. Laura’s first trimester was unremarkable except for mild, early-morning nausea and her first three prenatal visits were uneventful.

At the fourth month of gestation, a sample of amniotic fluid was tested for a fetoprotein (AFP), which was reported as “high.” Elevated AFP levels may be indicative of central nervous system defects. A repeat amniocentesis yielded the same results. The sonogram was “suggestive of a brain defect.” The option of abortion was raised, but Laura and Bill rejected it on the basis of personal religious conviction. A baby girl was born on time – healthy, robust, and perfectly normal. Her parents named her Mary Elizabeth.”

Pro-life Reverend tells his story

Reverend Paul Schneck, president of the National Clergy Council for Operation Rescue, tells the story of how he became pro-life:

“I suppose I’ve always been pro-life by conviction, but in truth I was pro-choice by default. I paid lip service to those who opposed abortion, but I never really did anything about it. That is, until about two years ago.

It all started when a young couple came to my office to see me. They placed a garbage bag on my desk and told me to open it. Inside were the mutilated bodies of four aborted babies. They were disemboweled. Their tiny arms and legs had been torn from their torsos. They had been decapitated.

For the first time I realized what abortion really was – the deliberate, premeditated murder of a preborn baby. For years I’d heard the numbers: 15 million, 18 million, 22 million, but they were just that – numbers. Now I knew better. On my desk was the gruesome evidence! I couldn’t pretend any longer.”

He became active with Operation Rescue and was repeatedly arrested for trying to prevent abortions.

Rape survivor calls her daughter “beautiful and perfect”

A woman who was raped and conceived, and chose to have her baby says:

“I have the most amazing daughter. She is perfect and beautiful in EVERY way; inside and out, I can’t even begin to express the level of kindness and love she has within her….

My daughter is smart, beautiful, helpful, compassionate, and everything that someone could wish for when having a child. She deserved the chance to live whether with me or another family. She has a lot to contribute to this world and I’m grateful I didn’t deny the world of her presence…..

Having the bright light of my daughter helped me recover from the trauma, and also to forgive those who hurt me.”
