“If you don’t want to have an abortion, then don’t have one. If I do want to, then it should be available.”
“What right do you have to tell me what to do with my body? It’s my choice!”
“Thank you [HIllary Clinton] for always speaking up for women.”
Let’s play a little game, shall we? Let’s translate some of these comments from people who advocate abortion:
“If you don’t want to murder someone then don’t, but if I do want to murder someone, then I should have all the tools to do it.”
“I have the right to do what I want with my body, even if it means I am destroying someone’s body in the meantime.”
“Thank you Hillary Clinton for only protecting the women who are able to speak for themselves and not the ones who are currently silent in the womb.”
I did have an abortion.
I was pro-choice.
Until I realized how selfish and ridiculous my logic was — I was guilty of murder so let me help more people be guilty of murder.
What aggravates me about the abortion debate is many people are so high and mighty about their personal rights and so condescending to others who value all human life. What I want, what I think, what I need. One woman said she couldn’t imagine bringing her baby into prison to see the dad. So she aborted instead. This is crazytown. Death is better than hardship?
And on top of it all, the personal hell that abortion brings is the most UNDERrated dilemma ever. How many women and men have I walked with who carry life-altering grief, shame and guilt. They made decisions based on too much fear and too little help and hope. No one talks about this reality in the pro-choice camps.
Thank you Jesus for washing that blood off my hands. Thank you for healing my broken heart. I pray the same for those who still suffer from this choice.
Today though, I want to address the staunch pro-choicers…If you are in favor of murdering the babies for mom’s convenience, preference, and shortsightedness about the future (I can say this because I did it) then proceed. Let’s just agree to call it what it is: Perverted human rights. One human life valued above another. Period.
Don’t call it empowering, or justified, or noble. Just call it murder. I pray that somehow, you will one day see that we have “choiced” away a huge portion of our country’s resources and wounded our own soul in the process.
God have mercy on us all. Give us eyes to see the truth Lord.
