Abortionist: banning abortion is an act of violence

Christiane Northrup, former abortionist, on why life is too valuable to ban abortion:

“The bond between mother and child is the most intimate bond in human experience. In this most primary of human relationships, love, welcome, and receptivity should be present in abundance. Forcing a woman to bear and raise a child against her will is therefore an act of violence. It constricts and degrades the mother – child bond and sows the seeds of hatred rather than love. … Life is too valuable to inhibit its full blossoming and potential by forcing a woman to bear it against her will.”

Christiane Northrup, MD Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom (New York: Bantam books, 2002)  383

Is banning abortion an act of violence? Or is performing an abortion an act of violence? Below are 2 pictures of abortions at 10 weeks, still the first trimester, within the time when most abortions are performed. Would preventing these abortions be “violence”?

  2. It is not the banning of abortion that is an act of violence. It would be getting a woman pregnant in the first place who doesn’t want to give birth to a child. The pro-abortion side loves to paint pro-lifers as rapists rather than stopping the real violence.
