28 Dec Mental Gymnastics and Abortion
If you’re “pro-choice” (hate that phrase) and you can’t bring yourself to acknowledge that the unborn child is INDEED a child, you can make all sorts of excuses for your behavior or your predicament. In a recent Salon article, “Why women have Second Trimester Abortions,” the author figuratively bends over backwards to make the case that women who have late term abortions have good reason for doing so. I’m not buying it and I suspect that you won’t either.
If you follow the pro-abortion line of logic, it is the unborn child who must pay the price for all sorts of “challenges” and “trials” that may come into the mother’s life. Here you go: If you are pregnant and you lose your job, that’s acceptable grounds for having a late term abortion. If you’re late on your rent or your unemployment runs out, all grounds for ending the life of your unborn child – no matter what the stage of pregnancy.
Susan Schewel, executive director of the Women’s Medical Fund, an organization that raises money so that it can be given to women who are short on funds to pay for their abortions, gives us this jewel of a quote:
“Given that 60 percent of women who have abortions are already mothers, coming up with the money [for an abortion] can be a tough calculus even with some help. “I spoke with someone yesterday who said she was going to return some of the Christmas gifts she’d gotten for her children.”
Now there’s one for you….Trying to elicit sympathy by telling the story of a woman having to return some Christmas gifts that she had gotten for her children so she could pay to abort her child– the sibling of these children. Oh my, what a decision…buy gifts or end the life of my unborn child!
Before we go further maybe we should be clear on exactly what late term abortion is. I can’t bring myself to put it in the body of this blog post, so you can read about it here. How about second-trimester abortion? It’s equally barbaric. Again, I won’t put it into the body of this post, but you can read about it here.
And, if you want a lesson in denial and the lengths that pro-abortion advocates will go through to disguise what they are doing, go here and read their version of a second-trimester abortion. Note that they NEVER refer to anything that even remotely resembles the fact that they are ending the life of an unborn child; they just refer to removing “tissue.”
I have to agree with the pro-aborts on one thing – what they are doing is unspeakable.
