Well, this is rich. God speed to Robin Marty, who blogged at the pro-abortion RH Reality Check until today, the day her son will be delivered by c-section.

I read Robin’s tweets and know she loves being a mom. I also know she has suffered the loss of a baby through miscarriage.

I hope Robin’s 2nd miracle of birth persuades her to fully embrace the sanctity of life, so she doesn’t have to twist her logic and emotions into pretzels.

I also hope the pro-choice friends who have surrounded Robin will be given pause to reconsider their position by the miracle of birth of Robin’s son. I can’t imagine how difficult it must be for activists supporting abortion to separate feelings when one in their circle decides to have a baby.

Here is an excerpt from Robin’s somewhat contradictory farewell

I began to realize that in many ways, emotionally and physically, miscarriage and abortion are 2 side of the same coin, that there are many overlaps between an unwanted pregnancy and pregnancy loss or infertility.  It became more and more clear to me that just as a woman should have the ability to get pregnant as quickly as she can whenever she she chooses to have a child, it is also imperative that she have the access and care she needs to end an unintended pregnancy, a pregnancy that threatens her health, or a pregnancy where her child will not be able to survive or thrive outside the womb.

And then I became pregnant again.  It was marred by fear.  It was shadowed by loss. But I was able to continue on day by day, in many ways by being able to share it, step by step, here with all of you….

[T]oday I am giving birth.  I will finally get to meet the stubborn, independent little creature inside me — the one who tried to frighten me with potential physical issues because he was too obstinate to give a good clear ultrasound image at 20 weeks.  The bullheaded boy who chose 2 weeks ago to turn himself breech to justify my choice for an elective c-section.  The one who started a firestorm before he was even born just by discussing his foreskin.

It seems appropriate to be saying goodbye to you all on the day I will be saying hello to this new being whom I finally get to meet face to face.  Although I will likely be returning in January, as always I am unsure what the future holds.  But this moment seems like a good one to close that chapter that started out so low, so dark, and so full of loss, and start in fresh with new life, new hope, and a newer understanding of why women need to make this choice individually, and for themselves.

Thank you for being with me through all of this.  And thank you for helping me heal in time to meet Sebastian Elmer Marty.

Congratulations, Robin.
