Abortion stories reveal “moral bankruptcy” of pro-choice position

by Kelli

abortion_by_ameleeIf the purpose of this article was to assist women to overcome the stigma of abortion, it is hard to imagine that it succeeded. The fact that this article appears four decades after Roe is proof that the decision failed to reset the nation’s conscience on abortion….

For the advocates of abortion, these testimonies offer a clear refutation of their strategy of doing everything possible to speak constantly of a “woman’s right to choose,” while avoiding any reference to the baby. The baby refuses to disappear. When these testimonies of abortion reveal the very women who had an abortion speaking of “our baby” and noting that “the baby would now be one year old,” the moral bankruptcy of the pro-abortion argument is there for all to see.

The baby refuses to leave the picture.

  1. Read some of the stories, they’re truly heartbreaking. But it’s true – it would make a person who is considering abortion to think twice.


  2. I think I would feel ashamed and depressed. Most of the doctors I know are anti abortion as well as nurses. However I did work with a post abortive pro choice nurse once. Now I understand why she was bitter. Mom of 2… one dead kid one alive. Ive worked with a few nurses who were post abortive.


  3. I should clarify….Betty in my above post was always bitter and a choice cheerleader. The other nurses expressed remorse or would tear up talking about their regret. Betty was called into the office one time for the way she spoke to the patients. Other nurses noticed it was borderline abuse. So did I. We called her a bitter hag. However that was back in 2003. Now I wish I could have discussed PAS with her.


  4. On my job working with the mentally ill I was talking with my supervisor about the problems I was having with my son, and she confided that she had had an abortion.  She did have another child, but she died.  This is an AA woman is in her sixties and said she has always regretted it.  She is very close to one of the clients there, she said that she is”the daughter she never had.”
    Could someone read this article and summarize it?  I can’t reading that pro-abort stuff anymore.  And please, please pray about the vote in New Mexico!


  5. These stories are so sad and depressing, I could only read the first 5-6.  These poor souls need our prayers.


  6. Just scanning the NY article you could get the impression it was pro-life… a triumphant chart showing how fast the movement is gaining ground, and a terribly sad story of a young woman blundering into an abortion she already regrets.   I guess the thing about the truth is, it has a certain inevitability about it.  Sooner or later it breaks through.


  7. Amen Joshua! God grates the surface of error’s failed revelations! What amazes me is the article mismatches the full fluid context of the stories being told within it. In fact, I can’t find redemption in any story told, yet the article is meant to redeem abortion as a celebrated and hard won ‘choice’. What it reveals is the opposite. The fact that the irony is lost on so many intellectuals proves why so many of them remain clueless of their counterpart’s abortion stories: They refuse to listen to anything they simply don’t want to hear. How easy it must be to be so learned and so celebrated and yet so blinded by it all. Oh that ignorance is bliss! It reminds me of Lazarus outside of the house of the richman. I pray for them. “The race is not to the swift or the battle to the strong, nor does food come to the wise or wealth to the brilliant or favor to the learned; but time and chance happen to them all.” – Ecclesiastes 9:11
