A recent blog post by another WP blogger, that I will not dignify with a link back, tells a story of her Christmas wish: “I had dreams of blood on a toilet seat. It was like a fantasy. I’ve been treating my body like shit, like it’s my enemy. This morning, I sobbed in terror as my husband stroked my head trying to comfort me. All I could think was that I wanted to make my body such a toxic, untenable place, that nothing else develops, and I just miscarry.”
If abortion is so….normal, then why panic attacks? Why tears? The fact that this young woman won’t give her name, not that we need or even want to know it, but it tells a tale of regret and shame: “For safety purposes, this blog will remain anonymous until I feel it’s safe to be open and honest about my choice(so, maybe never?)”
What the rest of this woman’s post says is that she is horrified to be pregnant and hates waiting until AFTER Christmas. She does not realize that if she has a ‘Christmas abortion’, she will be reminded of her ‘choice‘ every Christmas, of the life she sacrificed for her own selfishness.
This ‘choice‘, this ‘right‘, KILLS. And the truth is that she, along with most women, KNOWS that abortion kills a baby. The ‘blob of tissue‘ excuse is exactly that, an excuse. Biology is like math, neither can lie.
Selfishness is a long road to take care of. And obviously people die in the wake of it. Just today, OVER 3500+ people will die from selfishness. And all of you prochoicers can squawk about ‘exceptions’ and ‘safe, legal, and rare’ but all you are doing is prolonging the inevitable: All people, born and unborn, will be recognized to be just as important, with the same rights, as YOU. Why does that offend you so much? How does killing unborn children make you more of a woman? All abortion does is make you more of a murderer.
Then, what would I say to her, and others like her, if I could? So much can be said: statistics of deaths, infertility, depression, suicide…BESIDES a lifetime of regret and shame. But wait, there’s more…
There is one more thing that needs to be addressed about your abortion: What will you tell your future surviving children of their aborted sibling? Will you tell them of how they ‘made the cut’ but this baby did not? How can you explain that you also had the ‘choice’ to abort them, too? How will you keep them from having nightmares of being torn and shredded by an abortionist’s hand?
But there is one thing that all of us praying prolifers can do is PRAY FOR HER. She has not aborted yet. We need to pray for her, her husband and her innocent unborn child. While someone should shake some sense into this woman, it’s her child who will suffer being torn and shredded or burned with chemicals.
See more here, PLEASE pray for her. And remember, Christmas is just another day to an abortionist…nothing more. Pray for the eyes of the abortionists and their workers to be opened to the truth of abortion.
To this woman I say, “This Christmas you want an abortion, but you can have MANY Christmases with this little one to share, love, and give.”
Merry Christmas to her little one. I prayerfully hope that her child will see many more.
