Why I Lost Faith in the Pro-Choice Movement

Posted By on April 22, 2013

An excellent article explaining how the architects of our death culture have written the rules women are safe to play by, obfuscating terrible, murderous lies.

I believe that most people who are pro-choice hold that viewpoint because they want to help women. I was pro-choice out of loving concern for my sisters all over the world, and, on the surface, it seemed that this view was the most compassionate. But when I took a hard look behind the closed doors of the pro-choice movement, and demanded full information, and acknowledged the dignity of women of all ages (even those not yet born), and asked hard questions about what women’s reproductive freedom really means, that is when I became pro-life.

    Sounds like a compelling article. I used to call myself pro-choice too. Why did I lose faith? I read about the procedures: horrific things even on children below the fetus stage. It involved medical people performing brutal murder of unborn babies. And they often lied to the mothers. And sometimes restrained them if they began struggling against the painful procedure on the table. And the biggest group behind it (Planned Parenthood) is trying to solicit small children into their anti-parental guidance group and was founded to begin with by a racist, hateful creature that wished to lower the black population. Any other questions?

    I feel compelled to reply to this, I’m not sure why. I’ll start with I am neither pro choice nor pro life. I cannot decide and these are the reasons why:

    I know a man whose mother tried and somehow failed to have an abortion. He had a horrible abusive childhood. He’s now in his 30s and an absolutely remarkable man. I think the world would be a much worse place for not having him in it.

    I know a man who was on drugs, slept around, drank a lot, did not work and managed to impregnate a prostitute. That child is now 3. She is beautiful and her father is clean, sober, gainfully employed and doing the absolute best he can to be a wonderful single father.

    I worked as a 911 operator and medical dispatcher until my daughter was born. In that job I saw a very dark side of society. There was a case of twins who were beaten nearly to death at 3 months old. They both eventually did die, in the hospital, after their parents were caught and incarcerated. Yes, it was both parents responsible.

    I know a child, just over a year old, that is essentially homeless. Mother and father cannot be bothered and she is cared for by kind friends of the family.

    Several times over the past 10 years that I can remember men and women have been arrested for rape, abuse and murder of children less than 5 years old, at least half of the time they were the parents themselves. This is all in the county I live in.

    I am certain that most if not all pro lifers, if faced with an unexpected pregnancy would rise to the occasion, regardless of the cost to themselves and their lifestyles. I am not so certain for the vast majority of the population. A person from an influential family that would be disowned. How would they take care of themselves, let alone a child. Prostitutes and drug addicts, would they chose their child more often than not? My hold up is this. The thought of murdering a child breaks my heart and I wish we lived in a world where the choice was, you are pregnant and joyously welcomed to parenthood. I wonder though, if there are times when an abortion is the merciful choice. Killed in the womb, when still mostly unaware, or beaten to death by the person who you recognize as mom?

    I’m not trying to debate for one side or the other or start any arguements but those reasons keep me from being able to choose a side.

    I’ll ask you this, Neanthe: let’s say that you had a choice of relieving an unborn child from these future horrors. You had a pregnant woman living the kind of lifestyle you described, and her child had the possibility of being badly hurt in life, or maybe saved or helped by merciful people or a changed mother, such as the cases you described. You had no idea what would happen, but you had the ability to spare the child ANY future harm, and only by piercing its skull, injecting it with saline so it would die in prolonged agony, or tearing it apart. Would you do it?

  4. I agree with Jenn. It is torture and murder, regardless of when it happens. We don’t take life to justify saving a child from “what might be.” Instead, Christians need to get back on the forefront of taking care of “the least of these” in society. We’ve hit a low point in our uber-materialistic culture, where the majority of us (even those without a “high” income level) live at undreamed-of levels of wealth compared to generations before us. We need to look back at the early Christians and imitate them in what they were willing to sacrifice to care for society’s outcasts.

    I highly recommend Christine Pohl’s excellent book, Making Room, which is about more than hospitality. It’s about how Christians have given their possessions and their lives to take care of the diseased, the dying, the oppressed, and the unwanted. It was actions like these that helped Christianity spread like wildfire and capture the attention of people who couldn’t fathom why a healthy person would choose to go into a plague-infested area to clean and feed sick people. When we get back to doing what we’re supposed to be doing, these babies will all have a place to go if they need it; but their parents will also have more people reaching out to them with love and grace, helping them to break cycles of violence and exploitation. Infanticide was what the Greco-Roman empire practiced as the “merciful” way to get rid of unwanted children. Christianity stands as a clear antithesis and says, “We’ll take the babies, but we’ll also help their parents.” Let’s do that.
