When are pro-choicers going to realize that their leaders, spokespeople, and talking heads really are pro-ABORTION, not pro-choice? Jessica DelBalzo has written a cruel piece for RH Reality, boldly proclaiming, “I love abortion.”
Furthermore, she advises women:
Rather than trying to cozy up to the forced-birth camp, women who value their freedom should be proud to say that they like abortion. In fact, they should venerate it whole-heartedly. Abortion is our last refuge, the one final, definitive instrument that secures our bodily autonomy. What’s not to love?
What’s not to love? Maybe ripping babies apart. Maybe watching your baby (if you were to look at the ultrasound screen) pull away from the abortionist’s instrument in fear and probable pain from what’s about to happen. Maybe sacrificing your child’s life on the altar of your own convenience. Maybe violence. Maybe death. Yeah, I can think of quite a few things not to love.
Apparently, so can a lot of women who’ve had abortions:
Now that it’s over, everyone’s acting as if it never even happened, but every night I go to sleep crying, and wake up the next morning, put on my brave face and try to convince myself everything’s gonna be OK. What hurts the most is thinking I’m never going to go back to that person I was before. It is now part of my story and I have to live with it. I’m mad at myself in a way because I always told my self I’d never be that ”person”. I have to carry these regrets on my shoulders, and everyday I wish this has not been a life-changing experience for me, but it was…
I still remember that time before abortion, when all my thoughts was about “what do to”, I didnt sleep at night, all I did was think and cry…I thought also about adoption…yes I already loved this baby…after the abortion, it was the worst time in my life, i didnt want to live, I miss my baby so much…now about 7 mnths have passed and still I feel pain and I still crying at nights, and after abortion my life arent the same…it became grey and empty…if i can only turn back time…i would never do it.
At least Jessica DelBalzo is honest that when pro-choicers admit that abortion should be “safe, legal, and rare”, they are agreeing with pro-lifers that abortion is something bad. After all, why should something be rare unless it’s tragic, harmful, horrible, or at least sad, not-to-be-wished-on-anyone, and unfortunate?
At least the pro-choicers who say that abortion should be “rare” have a hope and a heart. While they may view abortion as a “right” or as “necessary,” at least they wish it didn’t have to be that way.
Of course, for many, many reasons, I completely disagree with the safe and legal part. Abortion shouldn’t exist, period. It doesn’t have to. It’s a human rights violation. Therefore, safe and legal don’t even need to enter the discussion.
Do we try to make other acts of homicide, murder, or genocide “safe” for the perpetrators? Do we ensure that the circumstances of a robbery are “safe” for the robbers? Do we say, “Ok, well, you’re going to commit rape anyway, so we might as well make it legal?” I didn’t think so.
As I’ve said before, if my “bodily autonomy” or “choice” or “power” or whatever as a woman must be bought at the price of my child’s blood, I DON’T WANT IT. Of course, it’s just rhetoric to state that abortion is necessary for woman to remain equal individuals in society – rhetoric that’s been debunked many times.
Jessica DelBalzo is issuing a rally cry for women to be proud of their abortions. She certainly has no regret for her own. Instead, she writes as though the worst thing in the whole situation was the “eight weeks of nausea and weight gain.” I’ve been pregnant—for 40 weeks. If you truly care about your child, nausea and weight gain are the least of your concerns.
But hey, at least she’s more honest than many supposed “pro-choicers.” As Ms. DelBalzo admits, the issue really is ABORTION, not this illusive word called “CHOICE.” If it really was about choice, President Obama wouldn’t be forcing employers and/or insurance companies to pay for abortifacient birth control; he wouldn’t be forcing taxpayers to pay into a special insurance “abortion fund”; ethicists in the UK wouldn’t be calling for “after-birth abortion”; and RH Reality wouldn’t be publishing an article about loving abortion. In the end, the pro-choice issue boils down to killing children. It’s that plain, simple, and unthinkable. But it’s reality.
I love abortion. I don’t accept it. I don’t view it as a necessary evil. I embrace it….I love abortion.
