Abortionists Describe the Reality of Abortion

This is a page I found from another pro-life blog. The quotes are really eye-opening. It makes you wonder how abortionists can do what they do. It makes you realize that people are fully capable of doing evil, even when they realize what they are doing. I used to subscribe to the idea that a person never actually does something that they believe is "wrong", but they always do what they believe is "most right", and that because of this, people are basically good. But reading articles like this have made me realize that this is not true. People don't do that they believe is "most right", at least not in our culture. People do what they believe is most convenient, no matter how horrifying the reality of their actions actually is.

Just think of how we would view someone who kills young children. Someone who acknowledges the humanity of the children he or she has brutally murdered, and yet refuses to stop killing them. Then rewind these children into the past by a couple of years, and you have the unborn.

Sometimes I wonder what makes people so eager to protect and love a baby that is only minutes old, and yet view a baby who is minutes from being born as something that can be killed. What is the difference between those of us who were born, and those of us who were aborted? What gave me my value, and took away the value of my brothers and sisters who never even had a chance to breath?

The answer, I think, is simple. People now view those who are loved as valuable, but those who are not as expendable. So in a country like Canada, where abortion-on-demand is considered necessary and good, my dignity and worth as a human was determined by an external factor - the love and sacrifice my father and mother were willing to give me even before I was visible to them as a born baby. Really think about that. The value of every single person, born and unborn in this country (and any other country where abortion is legal), is always dependent on someone else.

I emphatically reject that idea. My value is only determined by the fact that I exist. And that is one reason why I can never support abortion.

Seeing Hope

Sometimes it feels like abortion will never disappear, like it is too ingrained in our society, and like all hope is lost in fighting against the "culture of death". But then I read something like this:
and this:

and I start to think that maybe things are looking hopeful after all :)

Also: if any of you read this, pray hard for Poland!!! And pray that other countries in the EU start to follow!

Everyday Events

Sometimes I find that the less I want to think about the pro-life cause the more everyday things conspire to remind me of it. One event in particular comes to mind.

A couple of nights ago I was out with a few high school friends that I hadn't seen in a very long while. We got pretty drunk and started talking about any and all topics under the sun (I'm sure you all know how it goes). We got onto a common topic of marriage and children and how the people around us seem to be growing up so fast - for instance, two of our friends from high school are married, and quite a few of our friends (but not the same friends) have had babies recently. Specifically, one of our very good friends had just had a baby about a week ago, and her boyfriend at the time wanted to have an abortion but she refused. An all too common story, I'm sure, though most often with a different result. :( We were wondering whether or not the boyfriend was still in her (and the baby's) life, when one of my friends said,
"Well, what's the big deal? Situations like these aren't complicated. If you get pregnant by accident, then all you have to do is ..." [stabbing himself in the stomach].
I was shocked, because it was obvious he intended to be truthful, but funny. I just couldn't believe that someone would say something like that over a baby that was already born, essentially saying her baby should actually be dead - and then think that such a statement is amusing. I don't know about you, but I'd have thought that no matter what your opinion on abortion is (pro-life, pro-choice, or indifferent), that saying something like that would always be considered to be in very bad taste, and I would say, even cruel. Abortion is NEVER a "simple" solution to an accidental pregnancy.

Anyway, I just had to write about that even though it happened a couple of nights ago. I couldn't get it out of my head. It's depressing when you realize how some people view something like abortion as simple, and even funny.

Finding a Voice

To whoever might be reading this (and lets face it, chances are, no one is yet ...)

I am 23 years old. 
I just finished my undergraduate degree, and will be starting my Masters in September. 
I love music, art, and books. 
I waste a ridiculously large amount of time surfing the web. 
I love to travel, but I can't afford to go anywhere interesting. 

In many ways I'm an ordinary young woman, except in one. 

I am 100% pro-life. 
I am against abortion. 
I am against euthanasia and assisted suicide. 
I am against the death penalty and war. 
Basically, I am against anything that involves the killing of another human being. 

This blog, however, is going to focus primarily on abortion. I've decided to start writing about this topic because, in Canada, there are no laws against abortion, and because abortion has largely become associated with the feminist movement and "reproductive freedom". Any laws against abortion are now seen as attacks against women. And I call BS. 

This blog is for any other pro-life girls out there (and I know you must be somewhere!) who feel completely alone and isolated in your beliefs because of the simple fact that others assume that since you are a woman, you should be pro-choice. This is a blog for any girls out there who are silenced by the fear of being rejected and stereotyped for your beliefs. And this blog is especially for anyone, male or female, who is against abortion but who has yet to take any steps to support that position. I am just like all of you, and I am tired of not having a voice. 

This is perhaps a small and timid step towards pro-life activism, but I hope at least a few people find this blog and are able to relate to what I write here. I'm going to try to post at least one article per week, but in the meantime I'll leave you with a couple of interesting links to read through: (they have some good articles but sometimes you have to sift through them because a few of their news stories are ridiculous)
