Parents report how they were pressured to abort their child with down syndrome

In an Australian documentary, couples were interviewed about how medical providers pressured them when their babies were diagnosed in the womb with down syndrome.

Kathleen Simpkins has a daughter with Down syndrome. She says that when the tests came back positive for Down syndrome, the doctor tried frantically to get a hold of her. She says of the doctor:

“I think he might even have been shaking when he said to me, “I’m so glad you came back. I’ve been trying to get hold of you. You had an abnormal scan, and your window for termination is closing.”

Kathleen and her husband had decided before the test that they would not abort if the baby had Down syndrome. Andrew, the baby’s father, said that had they not made the decision in advance, it would have been hard to resist the pressure to abort:

“I can imagine that with the amount of negative advice we were given, that it would be hard to go through with the pregnancy, because it’s just so negative. The outcome is shown to be so sad and awful that you wouldn’t want to go through with it. I’d say most of the obstetricians that we saw, they – it [abortion] always came up in one way or another…

It’s one of those mind-blowing things that you can’t really believe it’s real, you can’t believe that these children really are being looked at as almost like a byproduct.”

Kathleen said:

“Both the way the doctors talk about Down syndrome and the way the testing itself is portrayed, it’s made out to be a way to get rid of Down syndrome. Like, we can get rid of Down syndrome the way we can get rid of cancer. It’s a great thing. But there’s a big difference between cancer and Down syndrome. Cancer’s something that happens to somebody. Down syndrome’s a part of who somebody is.”

At this point she broke down in tears.

Doctors continued to recommend abortion even after the Simpkins told them they didn’t want to abort. Their daughter is now a toddler.

Doctors tell woman to abort, but her baby is born healthy

Linda Serrano, of Bakersfield, CA tells her story:

“I received a German measles shot two weeks before I got pregnant with my first child. I called three doctors, and none of them would accept me as a patient. They all wanted me to get an abortion. I went to a fourth doctor, and she also advised me to have an abortion, that my chance of having a healthy baby was 0%. When I told her no, she said, ‘Well then you will have a deformed baby, and you’d better tell your husband.’ I was in tears by this time. My husband said, ‘God loves all people the same. Then I asked God to have mercy on us, and heal my child. I told Jesus that if He didn’t, that would be okay, because I knew He would be in control. I would love my baby no matter what. “I’m very happy to say that my baby girl, Angela, is perfectly healthy! While the doctor was stitching me up, she said I still should have had an abortion!”

Shout Your Abortion: The Reality

Shout Your Abortion is an organization that wants to bust abortion “stigma” by proclaiming that abortions are normal, wonderful, and positive. The group tweets stories from women bragging about how great their abortion experiences were. Shout Your Abortion is unabashedly pro-abortion.

This site exists to show exactly what this group is celebrating- the real truth about abortion. As such, there are graphic images of the remains of aborted children on this page.  Leave now if you don’t want to see what abortion does to a preborn baby.

The purpose of this page is not to shame the individual women who told their stories, but to show the terrible reality behind Shout Your Abortion and their pro-abortion rhetoric.

Shout Your Abortion celebrates the killing of human beings. Babies in the womb deserve a chance to live and thrive. Shout Your Abortion wants to avert abortion “stigma” but should there not be some stigma attached to murder?

This page is not intended to shame individual women who had abortions. It is intended to cut through the lies and euphanisms that promote the false belief that abortion is a good thing and a blessing to humanity.

The pictures are from two sources. One is The Center for Bioethical Reform. This group paid abortion clinics to allow them to photograph abortion remains. They have a signed affidavit by the photographer and an abortion doctor which attests to the accuracy of the photos. They have successfully sued organizations that have claimed the pictures were fake.

The other photos are taken by Monica Miller, who aquired the remains of aborted babies from a company that transported them to be disposed of. In addition, some of the babies photographed by her were found in the trash outside of an abortion facility run by abortionist Alberto Hodari, who has since lost his licence to practice medicine.

Judge describes witnessing abortion procedure on TV

Pro-Life judge Randall J Hekman wrote about a television program he saw:

“Embedded on my mind is a recent TV documentary on abortion in which the viewers actually witness a woman being aborted… We could hear the woman crying as the vacuum pump whirled, sucking her live child out to oblivion.

After the deed was done, the social worker attending the woman asked her if she hurt anymore. The woman’s answer, given with noticeable despondency, spoke volumes. “Not physically,” she said.

The social worker, accurately perceiving that the woman was emotionally aching from what had just happened, said, “It’s all right to feel bad. You’ve just lost something.”

Statement from New Wave Feminists on Kristen Hatten

There have been a number of articles about former New Wave Feminists member Kristen Hatten. These articles do not tell the whole story. In this post, I would like to clear up some misconceptions. Former New Wave Feminists Vice President Kristen Hatten was kicked out of New Wave Feminists a year and a half ago for expressing racist views. New Wave Feminists had no tolerance for these views and rejected Kristen Hatten completely. Kristen Hatten has emerged again recently and her connection to New Wave Feminists has caused many pro-choice groups to attack New Wave Feminists. Many details of Kristen Hatten’s ties to New Wave Feminists have been distorted in these pro-abortion articles.

For one thing, Kristen Hatten was not involved in New Wave Feminists when New Wave feminists was kicked out of the Women’s March. Kristen Hatten had already been expelled from New Wave feminists at that time. So the claims that “one of the people kicked out of the march has gone alt-right” are false.

New Wave feminists kicked Kristen Hatten out without a public statement a year and a half ago because they did not want to give a platform for her views. They did not want to encourage more people to see Kristen Hatten’s blog. Because New Wave Feminists kept the rejection of Kristen Hatten low key, there has been the misconception that Kristen Hatten was a member in good standing until this week. this is untrue.

People have been saying that the Huffington Post  broke the New Wave Feminist/Kristen Hatten story. In reality, it was New Wave Feminists President Destiny Herdon-De La Rosa who first broke it by condemning Kristen Hatten and her racism on the New Wave Feminists public facebook page. Herdon-De La Rosa felt the need to speak out against the racist statements of their former member. Her choice to disavow Kristen Hatten and speak out against racism was the event that led to the article in the Huffington Post, which led to the hit pieces against New Wave feminists currently being spread in pro-abortion circles

This is the official statement from New Wave Feminists, posted on their facebook page by Destiny Herdon-De La Rosa about the situation:

I thought I did the right thing.

I thought I did what I was supposed to do.

Over a year and a half ago I saw the beginnings of some very scary ideologies coming out of my best friend’s mouth. Stuff she’d NEVER said before.

And because she ran this activist group with me, I didn’t have the luxury of waiting around to see if this was just some sort of weird phase or if these things were truly what she believed. So the board and I removed her. Immediately.

It was hard, but I knew there was no place in New Wave Feminists for that type of thinking. She cut me off completely, and sadly grew even more extreme.

I’ve had no contact with her for nearly a year and a half (with the exception of an amends letter I sent her bc I’m working a 12-step program), but then a few weeks ago she started sharing stuff on social media – vile stuff – stuff that I didn’t think we as a movement could or should ignore.

So I denounced it publicly.

I thought I did the right thing.

I thought I did what I was supposed to do.

Almost instantly white nationalists started spamming my personal Facebook page. They began dissecting my personal life on alt-right fb threads with details given to them by my former best friend. Details only a best friend would know – about failings in my life and marriage. It was humiliating. These threads were then made public so they could be screenshot and sent around for all to see. A twitter account popped up with the handle @DestinyIsACunt and they began messaging me about how my bio dad really dodged a bullet when he abandoned me as a baby because I’m a train wreck, but at least that was better than my dead brother who was a motorcycle wreck. I laughed it off. My brother died in a car accident, idiot. I didn’t let it get to me.

Prolife bloggers started writing about my former partner and her beliefs and the comment sections grew. I noticed some important pieces started disappearing though… like the fact that we REMOVED her as soon as we saw the first signs of her white nationalism cropping up – or how about this – that THE ONLY REASON THEY EVEN KNEW ABOUT IT NOW was because I’d publicly denounced her earlier that week. She’d been hiding quite well in the recesses of the Internet before that. It was a non-story.

But then it became a story… not because it was an actual story… my former partner was barely involved in the movement a year and a half ago and hadn’t been since. But according to NARAL she was now a “PROMINENT PROLIFE LEADER” as they re-shared a piece in Huffington Post about her. Again, not because she was a prominent leader but because those who disagree with our ideology want to take us down… and this is the only way they can – through twisted half truths.

And now I’m watching the last 14 years of my life’s work crumble while someone with an anonymous email account tells me they wish my nazi bitch ass would die. Because now it’s their turn.

The alt-right is done decimating me, so the pro-choice left is coming to pick through the scraps.

I called out racism and said we have zero tolerance for it in our movement.

I thought I did the right thing.

I thought I did what I was supposed to do.

No. I know I did. Racism has NO PLACE in New Wave Feminism.

…but now I understand why so many people don’t call this stuff out… because even when you do the right thing, your opposition will find a way to use it against you. THIS RIGHT HERE is why racists are allowed to exist in the shadows.

Resource book for teens omits crisis pregnancy center

A handbook given out to pregnant teens that was meant to provide resources in the community included Planned Parenthood, but not a local crisis pregnancy center:

“… Let’s look more closely at programs in one midsize southwestern city. The Teenage Parent Council of Austin, Texas, publishes a “Green Book” resource directory for “teens, pregnant teens, and teenage parents.” The book, touted as a directory of services available in Austin and Travis County, includes agencies that provide counseling, medical services, birth control, abortion, adoption, maternity homes, health and education programs, social services, legal aid, shelter, transportation and other miscellaneous helps – but it excludes the Austin Crisis Pregnancy Center because it is pro-life and attempts to promote sexual abstinence among the unmarried.”

The Teenage Parent Council hands out a listing of birth control purveyors and abortionists who “are committed to helping teens feel comfortable when they come for services or for information. All of these clinics provide confidential services. That means that no one, not even parents, is informed about your birth control visit.”

Susan Olasky, Marvin Olasky More than Kindness: A Compassionate Approach to Crisis Childbearing (Wheaton, Illinois: Crossway books, 1990) 41

The text from the Teenage Parent Council comes from Garfinkel, Sara S McLanahan Single Mothers and Their Children (Washington, DC: Urban Institute, 1986) 82

A Letter to a Clinic Escort

This is a letter to an abortion clinic escort from a former abortion clinic worker. Catherine Adair worked at Planned Parenthood for a number of years. She wrote this letter to reach out to any clinic escort who volunteers at an abortion facility.

“Dear Clinic Escort,

Today I saw you, with your bright orange vest emblazoned with ESCORT on the front and back. You refused to make eye contact with me. I saw your gritty determination as you grabbed arms with that young woman and whispered in her ear, “Ignore them,” you said, “Don’t look at them, they are here to intimidate you, to scare you. I’ll keep you safe, don’t worry.” You walked quickly, head up, steel in your eyes, never letting up your grip on her arm. Her head was down, following your lead, mutely keeping up with your fast trot to the abortionist.

You ushered her in through the doors and soon emerged, alone, smiling at us triumphantly, a glimmer of malice in your eye, a smirk of arrogance and joy at having bested us – another woman you saved from the anti-choice fanatics. You rejoin the other escorts, laughing and joking, until the next car pulls up, and your face resumes the mask of the militant soldier, ready to do battle for women’s reproductive rights.

As I watched you I wondered, have you ever been inside the clinic? Have you ever been in the waiting room, filled with the silence of trepidation and fear? Have you listened to the stifled tears?

abortion clinic escort

Have you ever been in the counseling room? This place, where instead of asking questions and listening, the worker masks the truth, or outright lies about the third life in the room, the life growing inside the woman’s womb? Have you seen her sad and scared eyes? Have you asked her why she is there? Do you know if she is being pressured or forced into this abortion, if she is safe at home…all the questions she won’t be asked inside the clinic? Does she know about all of the help available to her if she keeps the baby? Does she know how many couples would love to adopt her baby?

My dear Clinic Escort, have you been there for the ultrasound, where you can see the fully formed baby kicking its arms and legs? Have you heard the worker tell her it is just a bunch of cells? A blob? A product of conception? Have you been with her, holding her hand as she screams in pain, ignored by a doctor who doesn’t even know her name? Have you heard the suction machine, watch as the blood, tissue, and body parts flow from her body into a cold jar? Have you heard the sound of the currette scraping her uterus? Have you seen the body parts – an arm, a leg, a piece of a rib cage, poured into a baggie as though it were scraps of meat?

Have you sat with her in the recovery room as she stares off into space, desperate to get away from this place so she never has to think of it again? Have you been with her through the depression and the anxiety that plague her after the abortion? The breakup of her relationship? Have you helped her through her drug addiction, her binge drinking? Have you been there when she is unable to bond with her children? When her marriage falls apart? Will you be there when she attempts suicide? Will you be at her funeral when she succeeds?

Dear Clinic Escort, look into my eyes. They have seen things you could never imagine. Things that have made me scream in the middle of the night. Things that are never discussed in the intellectualized, feminist world of abortion rights. Because while you see a job well done when you usher her through those doors, her nightmare is just beginning.”

Social worker says abortion does no service to women

A British social worker says:

….the woman’s feeling that she cannot tolerate bringing a child into the world may be a symptom of a situation such as an inability to cope with married life, and by making abortion too readily available we do little but relieve the patient’s immediate suffering for a short time and thus do her no real service, producing in her a sense of guilt which she can redress only by becoming pregnant again as quickly as possible. . . .

When talking to the parents of these unborn children one must at all times be aware that what may at first seem to be an uncompromising attitude may swing around to a complete reversal of the original rejection.

Abortionist killed 35,000 human beings in 7 years

One abortionist did 35,000 abortions in seven years.

“From 1970 through the greater part of 1977, California millionaire – abortionist Dr. Edward Allred was personally responsible for destroying 35,000 human lives before birth, including some 7000 midtrimester killings by salt poisoning. When asked by a reporter what happens in an abortion, Dr. Allred made no reference to the killings, but replied: “the contents are evacuated.”

Assignment Life, New Liberty Films, Burbank, California, 1980

William Brennan The Abortion Holocaust: Today’s Final Solution (St. Louis, Missouri, 1983) 115

Allred also botched many of these abortions. 

And made offensive, racist statements.

Woman feels baby kick before her abortion

From a woman who had an abortion after her baby was diagnosed with kidney trouble. He may have been on dialysis or needed a kidney transplant:

“It was a Friday afternoon, and we scheduled the dilation and evacuation for Monday morning. It was surreal … to walk around feeling our baby kick his little legs and flip around, knowing that after Monday I would never feel him again…Our daughter understood only that the little baby in Mommy’s tummy was very sick”
