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.”

  1. There is a guilt and shame from doing something contradictory to the will of God. Is that what you mean?
    There is a conscience constantly reminding you of the natural law which God gave us when He first made man. Is that what you mean?
    There is an acknowledgement of having committed a crime against humanity, yet despaired from the horror and severity of the crime, so much so, that people would commit suicidal acts (“they would that they had not been born) rather than meditate on their crimes, so terrified are they at their sins and so intuitive is the understanding for the justice of punishment. Is that what you mean?

    Do you mean to say here, in this post, that women are taught that abortion is perfectly right, even though God gave them a nature that keeps reminding them that abortion is inherently wrong? Is that what you mean?

    If so, this is not old news, but thanks for posting the truth, anyways.
    May God help us all!
    Pax vobiscum!
