Live tweeting abortion, Part VII: “Ow”

Read Part II, Part IV, Part VI, Part IX, and #livetweetingabortion. I’ve learned something new.

by The Washington Post has an article on one of the abortionists who travels to SD to perform abortions because no doctor in SD will perform them. Apparently, Carol Ball doesn’t understand the what pro-lifers believe in the slightest: “I would rather do this without all this hoopla,” she says. “I’m dismayed that it’s gone […]

Quote of the Day 2-26-10

I was “on the fence” about abortion before coming here. But, after reading through the posts, I’ve come to realize something very simple, yet very powerful: Basic human rights = the right to life. Period. You can try to justify the suppression of these rights any way you want, but the bottom-line remains the same. […]

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.
