Jemima Kirke’s abortion story still won’t change abortion laws

by Carder The viewer’s sympathies are rightly with Kirke, who is earnest and direct in what she relates. Yet, at the fear of sounding callous, my immediate reaction to her account was to shrug my shoulders and sigh, “So what?” To be clear, it wasn’t her story I was dismissing, but the tenor of debate […]

Author: We need to make women “comfortable” with abortion

by Kelli A while back I reluctantly attended a girls’ movie night with a few other women in their late 20s. When I arrived, I was informed we were to watch Obvious C?hild. I was less than one beer in when I deduced none of the women there had ever had an abortion. I quietly […]

Leaders in post-abortion recovery ministry say the church remains reluctant to fully face the impact of abortion within their own congregations.

[Post-abortion counselor Kathy] Rutledge said she once gave her testimony to a group of women at a megachurch in the South and by the end, several women were “practically bawling.” Yet, when Rutledge asked about doing a follow-up, the group’s leader said, “None of my women have had an abortion… and even if they did, they don’t need to be speaking about it.”

Pro-choice author: Keeping teen abortion a secret is “mature”

by Kelli K Kaufmann wrote a book called The Abortion Resource Handbook, which is meant to guide women through their abortion decisions. It is aimed specifically toward women considering abortion.

For starters, while a handful of Black celebs have talked about having abortions (Vanessa Williams and Sherri Shepherd come to mind), it’s rare that young Black celebs speak out. And largely, the […]

Duck Dynasty wife “fretful” over “entrapment” during interview

by Kelli Dear Friends, please be in prayer for me today. I am fretful over the interview with HuffPostLive yesterday. I am pro-choice only when it’s God’s choice. I was so flustered over her [the interviewer’s] questions & just wasn’t aware that she was trying to trap me. Call me naive. I had an abortion […]

100406ScarletARecently, abortion proponents decided if you can’t beat, join ’em, and began urging their people to counter post-abortive stories of regret with post-abortive stories of relief.

They launched the 1 in 3 Campaign and began writing articles explaining the importance of coming out.

Even Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards finally admitted to having an abortion skeleton in her closet, claiming it was easy peasy, even if something about it kept her from sharing the good news beyond her inner circle for years and years.

Nicki Minaj says abortion haunts her but she’s still pro-choice

by Carder I thought I was going to die…. I was a teenager. It was the hardest thing I’d ever gone through. … It’d be contradictory if I said I wasn’t pro-choice…. I wasn’t ready. I didn’t have anything to offer a child. ~ Rapper Nicki Minaj reflecting on her abortion in an interview with […]
