(Prolifer)ations 3/31/08

I sure have missed my (Prolifer)ations posts. I launched (Prolifer)ations a few months back to spotlight good info gleaned from other pro-life blogs, because there’s no way I can keep up with all the news. But I kept running short of time to research, and so (Prolifer)ations faded from “site,” although not from mind. But […]

Hannity’s America tonight last night: Obama/Planned Parenthood

FYI, tonight calls secretly recorded by UCLA pro-lifers. UPDATE, 8a: Hannity combined an exposé on Barack Obama’s radical support of abortion with an exposé on Planned Parenthood’s willingness to take money to abort black babies, since Obama supports PP. The segment was very good except on one key issue…

Pfleger welcomes Wright

Welcome, Michelle Malkin readers. Michelle linked to my March 5 column, her post yesterday on Rev. Jeremiah Wright’s surprise appearance Friday night at Pfleger’s southside Chicago Catholic church, St. Sabina’s. What a nonsurprise. Click on graphic below for link to see the reception Wright received: Houston Chronicle…

New poll/Old poll

The new poll question is up: Should the international community boycott the Beijing Olympic Games due to China’s recent crackdown against Tibet and/or its forced one-child-per-family policy? Responses to last week’s poll surprised me. I didn’t expect so many to think aborting mothers should be considered criminals. Perhaps this shows true thoughts of pro-lifers; perhaps […]

Weekend question

Last week came the first noticeable hurdle to Barack Obama’s race to the White House: his pastor, Jeremiah Wright. News organizations held their collective finger on the replay button showing sermon clips from “best of” videos Wright sells at his Trinity United Church of Christ bookshop. In these Wright displays himself as an anti-American black […]

I followed my trainer to the lab where products of conception (P.O.C.) were inspected to make sure the doctor removed all the bits that, if left behind, could cause an infection. My trainer made a point to show me the tiny arms and legs floating in the glass baking pan. At 10 weeks and beyond, those appendages are formed and clearly recognizable.

It was all so heavy. The loneliness of those little arms and legs. That girl, so clearly suffering during the procedure. Before my job at the clinic, my stance on abortion had been so black and white. I had been firmly pro-choice for as long as I could remember. Was it possible that working here could change my mind?…

Abortion is fraught with so much negative sentiment, and in a sense, abortion is plucking a life from existence that has yet to have the opportunity to thrive. No one is claiming it’s pleasant. There is nothing black and white about abortion. It’s every shade of gray. But for us pro-choicers, the woman’s life trumps the embryo or fetus. That’s the bottom line. We place value on a woman’s ability to know what is best for her. It simply needs to be a safe and legal option. When I started at the clinic, all I saw was the individual moment of pain, but over the years I began to see a much richer portrait — women coming out the other side, relieved, even if it was simply a relief to have the procedure behind them. They could go back to their lives.

Seeing every side, the whole complicated and profound process, I came out more pro-choice than ever. I started to see it from a purely biological standpoint. We were removing an unwanted growth to preserve the woman’s chosen course.
