I have written countless articles about abortion and detailed with no pulled punches just how evil and twisted it is, and how evil and twisted those who most fervently support it are. But if you want to see just how evil abortion is, and how calling it “pro-choice” is nothing but a farce, I suggest you listen to the story I am about to share with you.
This comes from a LiveAction.org story from late last year. I had, on occasion, thought about talking about it or at least mentioning it, but seeing as the period between November 26 (the day that article was published) and at least the last week or so of January was relatively hectic, I hardly had much of a chance to talk about this. But it is a story that I do not want people to miss out on because it’s powerful.
In a book interestingly titled “Shout Your Abortion Too,” there is a story of a woman named Katie, who recalls the coerced abortion she was forced to undertake as well as the trauma that she had suffered at the hands of her toxic boyfriend and workers at Planned Parenthood.
According to LiveAction: “[Katie] and her boyfriend went to Planned Parenthood for a pregnancy test, which was positive. While there, the Planned Parenthood worker asked them what they wanted to do about the baby. ‘My boyfriend spoke up, quickly and firmly, with one word, “ABORTION.” It was the first time that word had been spoken between us,’ said Katie.”
Katie went on to recall: “The counselor did not ask me if I agreed, or if we wanted any other information regarding what kind of support would be available to us if we decided to move forward with the pregnancy, nor did she mention the option of adoption.”
A bit of a red flag for those who might still argue that this is about “choice”, right? The girl was not given a choice. Matter of fact, it was the BOYFRIEND, the father-to-be, who made the choice for her. And the Planned Parenthood workers did not bat an eyelid at that whatsoever.
What, exactly, do you think would have happened if the boyfriend had suggested keeping the baby or giving it up for adoption? Do you think the PP worker would have remained silent? Or would they have said “this is your girlfriend’s choice, not your own”? And don’t tell me they would have said “well, discuss it amongst yourselves and arrive at a consensus” because there have been times when a girl got an abortion despite her boyfriend BEGGING her to not get one.
The Left presents people with the illusion of choice in many areas, and abortion is one of those. Women only have the “choice” regarding their baby if that choice is to kill it. Katie’s opinion didn’t matter at all here because the boyfriend wanted to get an abortion and Planned Parenthood makes the bulk of its money by doing that.
And instead of trying to give Katie any alternatives, the PP worker ENCOURAGED them to abort, saying that “abortion was the responsible choice to make since [they] were just college students without jobs or the means to provide a stable home for the baby,” insisting that they had their whole lives ahead of them to start a family.
What’s more, the PP worker also lied to Katie and pressured her to get an abortion quickly:
“She assured us by saying that at that point in the pregnancy, the embryo was just ‘undeveloped tissue’ but then added an urgent warning that we would want to act quickly because after a few more weeks ‘it would get a little more complicated.’”
I don’t know how many months pregnant Katie was at the time, but at no point in the pregnancy is the baby “just ‘undeveloped tissue.’” Life begins upon conception, the union of the father’s DNA through the sperm cell and the mother’s DNA through the egg cell, creating a brand new genetic code unique to that person and different from all others which came before or would come after.
It’s life. It is alive. It’s a person beginning their development. It’s not “undeveloped tissue”; it’s a developing human baby.
No one would look at a pregnant dog and say “ah, she’s just harboring undeveloped tissue within her womb”. So why would we treat human babies as less than a dog?
At any rate, LiveAction continues: “A few days later, Katie’s boyfriend called and made an appointment for an abortion. Katie called and canceled it. She didn’t want an abortion, and she argued with her boyfriend. She said his responses to her questions about keeping the baby or adoption ‘became more desperate and threatening.’”
“He was not ready to be a dad, he would not stick around if I had the baby, he assured me I would be on my own, he couldn’t handle his child being given up for adoption and knowing they were ‘out there’ somewhere,” said Katie.
Frankly, with this kind of behavior, it’s a wonder why Katie would not dump his dead-beat ass on the spot. I can understand that she was likely afraid of taking on the role of a mother pretty much on her own (no mention of Katie’s parents in this story, but I imagine they might have at least lent a hand unless they are as big a monster as the boyfriend is), but seriously, women should not stick with horrible men like that.
Despite that pressure, Katie held her ground to not get an abortion, but then her boyfriend resorted to emotional blackmail by threatening to take his own life:
“And then came the ultimate threat: he wouldn’t be able to live with himself if I chose to keep the baby without him. He’d kill himself instead. My boyfriend was not budging. Planned Parenthood had presented it as the only reasonable and responsible choice.”
Again, where’s Katie’s “right” to “choose” here? Can a liberal tell me that Katie’s boyfriend was in the wrong here? That coercing a woman to get an abortion through emotional blackmail and threats is the antithesis of the idea of “women’s right to choose”?
Ultimately, after her friends all also encouraged her to get an abortion (don’t befriend those who would encourage an abortion; such people are evil and make for terrible friends), Katie relented and went in for an appointment.
She recalls: “The waiting room was full of young girls; a lot of them with their moms, a few with presumably their boyfriends. No one talked and many were crying. It was the saddest and darkest place I’ve ever been.”
I would hope that, before getting an abortion, the girls would be crying. That at least shows their humanity and, frankly, that they do not really want to do this but feel as though they have no other choice.
Once again, the Left presents people with the illusion of choice. These girls are led to believe that they have no other choice apart from an abortion, but that they technically “can choose” not to get one. They are emotionally and psychologically manipulated to perform perhaps the most egregious act a human can perform upon another, and are led to believe there is no other way and that they must prioritize other things like school or a career, etc.
A woman who revels in the killing of her own offspring is worse than scum; a disgusting human being that can hardly be called such.
But such women are, thankfully, the fringe minority. Most women, I imagine, view abortion not as liberation but as a tough “choice”. Not that that makes it better at any capacity, nor does it excuse the act in any way, but many of these women are made victims by evil people who benefit from the termination of a human life, whether those people be terrible boyfriends or genocidal “doctors.”
In any case, Katie was, interestingly enough, shown an ultrasound of her baby at the clinic, where she realized how full of crap the Planned Parenthood workers were:
“When I saw the ultrasound, I was shocked that I could see an image of a baby, not tissue. I saw a heart beating but the sound was turned off. There was no time to process before I was ushered into the next room where a doctor and a nurse awaited me and told me to lay down and relax. My mind was spinning. I had just seen my baby!!”
The monsters didn’t give Katie a moment to reflect on the fact that THERE WAS LIFE GROWING INSIDE HER, and made sure she couldn’t back out of the procedure. “Nobody acknowledged the tears streaming down my face,” she went on to recall. “No one stopped to ask if I was sure about what I was about to do.”
Of course no one stopped her from doing it. THEY BENEFIT FROM KILLING PEOPLE. If allowed and had a financial incentive to do so, they would kidnap pregnant women and force an abortion on them ala Chinese style, that’s how vile and evil these people are.
They hold no regard whatsoever for the life growing inside a woman’s body and hold no regard to the mother’s feelings about it unless those feelings align with their financial and political goals.
Katie, during the procedure, had eventually heard the nurse say: “You got it. I just saw it come through the tube.”
It was upon hearing those words that Katie realized what she had done:
“Those words were an absolute soul-crushing reality. They could see the baby. The baby was big enough to SEE. And they just sucked an innocent baby out of my womb with a vacuum, through a tube, and into a canister. My mind was screaming at me. What had I done?!?... I was overwhelmed with incredible regret. And the shame, guilt, and grief were unbearable.”
Following the forced abortion, her relationship with her boyfriend further deteriorated, and she said that he had become physically and verbally abusive. Years later, Katie said: “There will always be an ache in my heart that wishes I had not taken the life of my child; that looks at each year wondering what their life would’ve looked like now.”
And Katie’s story is not necessarily unique. Roughly 73% of women with a history of abortion admitted in a 2018 survey that “they experienced at least subtle forms of pressure to terminate their pregnancies,” according to the Population Research Institute.
Over 50% of women reported that they had perceived great enough pressure to significantly influence their decision to abort, nearly 60% said that they aborted to “make others happy” and almost 30% said they did it because they were afraid of losing their partner if they didn’t abort. 66% of the surveyed women said that they knew in their hearts that abortion was wrong and 67.5% said that such a decision was the most difficult one of their whole lives.
Women are naturally drawn to protect their children. They have parental instincts to preserve the lives of their offspring ahead of even their own. The very concept of abortion is antithetical to a woman’s instincts and it’s why so many girls at those clinics are crying: they KNOW that what they are doing is wrong, but are led to believe by evil forces that they have no choice but to do wrong.
“You’re young, in college, unemployed, and have your whole life ahead of you. What makes you think you have the capability to take care of this baby and have a good life?” This is the kind of argument Satan uses to coerce people into living a life full of sin. No surprise, then, that the Left is such a fan.
May God open the eyes of all women everywhere to the recognition that abortion is wrong and to have the courage to stand up against this vile, evil, anti-woman, anti-human, anti-nature and anti-God atrocity.
“Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward.”
We bring you the TRUTH that the Left denies you. You'll live a more joyful and victorious life, because the Truth will set you free...
