Mother threatens to kick pregnant teen out of the house unless she has abortion

Lauren, a teen who had an abortion, was interviewed. Here is an excerpt from the interview:

“Q: And had you decided straightaway what you were going to do?

L: No, I were going to keep it, but, em, going to get rid of it.

Q: What persuaded you?

L: Well, ‘cos I’m too young and I want a job, and basically I would have nowhere to live, if I did keep it, you [to mother] said you wouldn’t have me would you not with a baby.”

Post-abortive woman describes her traumatic abortion

Jeannie Smith, a postabortion woman who is now pro-life, describes her abortion:

“Internally I was screaming STOP! But I knew it was too late.
As I listened to the sound of the procedure, I slowly rolled my head to the left only to feel a tear of pain trickle down my face…

Little did I know that one tear would remain with me the rest of my life. It would cause years of pain, an unhappy life filled with shame, and guilt that eventually caused a heart of stone.”

Abortion clinic refuses to help pregnant woman who didn’t want abortion

From a yelp review of Annapolis Health Center by Lisa W:

“When I found out I was pregnant, I realized their support system was more for women who will decide to have an abortion. I was keeping my baby, and so I had to get counseling elsewhere…

when I called to “discuss my options”, the operator was a little snide with me and asked, “Discuss your options or schedule an abortion?”

Post-abortive father writes letter to aborted child

Post-abortive father G Spencer Schirs, Jr. wrote a book about his experience with abortion. In the book, he presents a letter he wrote to his aborted baby, who he calls Grace:

“We bought the lies that you were simply a choice, nothing more than a cluster of cells to be sacrificed at the altar of convenience. I apologize to you for not being the man I thought I was. Because of my selfishness at that moment, I sacrificed what was likely one of the greatest gifts I might ever receive – you.

I have imagined you as a little girl, for some reason, with big eyes and an even bigger smile. Because of that image, there has been an emptiness within me. A day has not passed that I do not think of you and what my life would have been like with you in it…

Every time I hear a child laugh, I cannot help but wonder what your laugh would have been like or what your favorite flower or color might have been…

Your mom and I were young… Your mother was scared… I believe that had I simply asked her to keep you, she would have.”

Pro-abortion woman upset over death of chicken embryo

Pro-life author Janet Morana told the following story. At the time she recalls, she was working as a teacher in a public school in New York City:

“My good friend and team teacher Denise would adamantly proclaim herself to be pro-choice, while I was the token pro-lifer in our school.

One spring semester, we decided to hatch chickens in our classroom. We ordered all the appropriate equipment, including our precious fertilized chick eggs…

One morning, when we entered the classroom, Denise and I noticed a problem with one of the eggs. The shell was cracked open and we could see a yellow yolk sac and a bloody mass pulsing like a beating heart. In fact, it was the beating heart of a chick that was not going to develop further.

Denise and I were both upset, not knowing what to do. Denise gasped, “It’s still alive!”

I knew that but also knew there was nothing we could do to save it. Within moments, the chick’s heart stopped beating. Denise was very upset at the loss of this chick in the very early stages of development.

So how can Denise be pro-choice on abortion? She was obviously a very sensitive person, but when it came to abortion, logic seemed to vanish.”

Abortionist “won’t debate” when life begins

A pro-choice author who works in an abortion clinic quotes South African abortionist Dr. Janet Cole saying:

“I am quite a practical person and [abortions] need to be done. There is no doubt about it. I won’t even debate the ethics of abortion; I won’t even debate when does life begin and all the rest of it…

For me, it’s a completely pragmatic thing. As a healthcare professional with a particular interest in women’s health, it is essential.”

The pro-abortion author responds:

“Access to sensitive services like abortion could be drastically improved if more health providers felt the obligation Dr. Cole expresses to contribute to women’s health in that particular way, either directly providing services or being an advocate for the liberalization of abortion laws.”

Are patients really served when doctors refuse to consider the morality of their actions? This doctor seems to have no moral compass and no concern with what’s right or wrong.

Post-abortive woman describes being lied to at Planned Parenthood

Mary Kominsky had an abortion after the father of her baby abandoned her. It was before Roe vs. Wade, but abortion was legal in New York.

She says:

“Fear had led me to the belief in the lies surrounding abortion. No one would ever find out. After all, the doctor at Planned Parenthood told me it was just a clump of cells and tissue even though I was 11 weeks pregnant.

She promised I would be able to go on with my life as if nothing had happened. But just the opposite came true.”

She describes what happened afterward:

“Following the procedure, I was deeply traumatized as fear turned into guilt and shame. It was not a simple surgical procedure as I had been promised…

I had to detach my mind, my heart, and my emotions. In shutting these off, my heart hardened and turned cold. Initially, there is a relief of not having to face uncertainty, but that often turns to great sadness. I became angry and resentful to all those around me. I had a deep shame and a profound sense of loss.”
