Feminist: There is “tremendous loneliness” in “right to choose”

Frederica Mathewes-Green wrote:

“There is tremendous sadness, loneliness, in the cry, “A woman’s right to choose.” No one wants an abortion as she wants an ice-cream cone or a Porsche. She wants an abortion as an animal, caught in a trap, wants to gnaw off its own leg. Abortion is a tragic attempt to escape a desperate situation by an act of violence and self-loss.”

Pro-Life leader: media never reports on Black women killed by abortion

Dr. Johnny Hunter, African-American pro-lifer and cofounder of L.E.A.R.N.:

“It breaks my heart that when a young man is gunned down by a [police officer], the media runs with it like wildfire. Yet, if an abortionist kills a young black woman and baby, the silence itself is tragic.”

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.

Post-Abortion woman wishes someone had stopped her

Pro-life author Richard Exley told the following story:

“Some time ago I was speaking to a right to life rally. When I had finished, a young woman came to the front of the auditorium and asked to speak to the audience. Noting her obvious distress, I hesitated before giving her the microphone.

Tearfully she confessed that eight years earlier she had aborted her baby… The father had wanted nothing more to do with the young woman or her unborn child. In shame and desperation she has scheduled a legal and inexpensive abortion.…

Trembling, she told us that on the way to the abortion clinic she had “prayed” that someone would stop her.

“If only one person has asked me not to do it,” she sobbed, “my baby would be alive today.”

“I can’t go back and undo what I’ve done,” she continued. “But I pledge to you, and to God, that I will be there, in front of the abortion clinic, to help some other woman save her baby.”

Listening to her story, I couldn’t help but wonder how many other babies have been killed simply because no one was there.”

Feminist calls abortion “deeper assault than rape”

Feminist Daphne de Jong wrote:

“If women must submit to abortion to preserve their lifestyle or career, their economic or social status, they are pandering to a system devised and run by men for male convenience. Of all the things which are done to women to fit them into a society dominated by men, abortion is the most violent invasion of their physical and psychic integrity. It is a deeper and more destructive assault than rape…”

Pro-Lifers must be “approachable and trustworthy”

Pro-Lifer John Cavanaugh–O’Keefe explains why pro-lifers have to be supportive and compassionate to pregnant women:

“Preborn children have the same rights to protection that anyone else has, but their protection must take into account their unique relationship with their mothers. It is not possible to harm a preborn child without going through the mother. It is not possible to hug the child without hugging the mother. A preborn child isolated from his or her mother is a theoretical construct, not reality. To protect the child, you have to deal with the mother.

If the means you use to protect a child make the mother turn away from you in fear, you have failed. Violent means are likely to do just that.

If the means you use to protect a child made her wonder whether you are approachable and trustworthy, you have failed.”

Activist: clinics try to make abortion “nice”

Pro-life author and activist John Cavanaugh–O’Keefe writes:

“The abortion clinic personnel make a great effort to see to it that abortion appears to be gentle and polite and nice. They surround it with cookies and soda, with lounge chairs and a cheery decor. But the façade is destructive, not only of the truth, but also of the women who, even if they have the abortion, still will desperately need at some point to come to grips with what they have done. In due time, they must see clearly that they are parents and that their children are dead.”

Mark Crutcher on “likeable” pro-lifers

Pro-life activist Mark Crutcher told the following anecdote:

“Years ago, I saw a television interview with a man who was asked his opinion on abortion. He said he was conflicted on the issue itself, but that he found the pro-choice people to be more likable than the pro-life people. He went on to say, “So if I have to choose one or the other, I guess I’m pro-choice.”

We are fooling ourselves if we think this man’s attitude is uncommon.”
