Why Thousands of Women are Shouting Their Abortions

By: Kristen Clark

Even amongst pro-choicers, abortion used to be viewed as a sad and unfortunate thing. It was viewed as an “out” for rape victims and women who had “no other choice.”

Not anymore.

The recent #ShoutYourAbortion campaign took this long-time debate to a shocking new level. Pro-choice women are now raising their voices and cheering for their abortions.

Women everywhere are being prodded and encouraged by radical feminists to shout their abortion to the world. To boldly proclaim their “choice” for everyone to see.

They are being told to celebrate, cheer and take pride in what they’ve done.

Many conservatives are calling this movement wicked and totally depraved, but these feminist are fiercely defending their stance.

After reading dozens of pro-abortion tweets and articles, it’s pretty clear what’s going on.

Here’s a snapshot of what’s being “shouted:”

“There should be no shame in having an abortion, if a woman decides that’s what she is going to do, she is almost certainly making the right decision.”

“Abortion is a responsible and moral choice. You have the right to a safe abortion and no one can take that away from you.”

“Honestly, my abortion at 20 was one of the first responsible, non-self-destructive, grown-up choices I ever made.”

“My abortion was in ’07. I didn’t want kids then and still don’t. I’m managing my own wellness.”

There’s a common theme trending here.

It is the underlying attitude and worldview that says this: My happiness always comes first…no matter what.

In response to my recent open letter to the women of #ShoutYourAbortion, Lindy West (a leading pro-abortion advocate and feminist) responded to me by saying,

“I don’t believe in god. Every religion is equally foreign and improbable to me. You will as easily convince me to believe in Zeus as in your god.”

This explains everything right here. The entire shout your abortion movement boils down to this one fact. These women (most of them) don’t believe in God. Lindy West and millions of other women have rejected God and dismissed Him from their vocabulary.

As the famous saying goes, “If God does not exist, everything is permitted.”

When a woman dismisses the idea of God from her life, she does exactly what Hitler did. She becomes her own god. She is now her highest authority. She is now her moral compass. She is now the one who decides right from wrong.

She rules her life from an autonomous throne whose greatest interest is personal happiness.

And this is exactly why these women are shouting their abortion to the world. They’re saying, “My choice!” “My happiness first.” “My life!” “My rules!” “My morals!” “And don’t you dare shame me for it!”

Just read the quotes from above.

The number one interest of each woman isn’t others, it isn’t their babies, it is themselves.

Abortion isn’t about a “woman’s right to choose,” it’s about a woman’s right to be her own god and do whatever she thinks is best for her.

Without God, self rules. And that, right there, is exactly why women are proudly #ShoutingTheirAbortions.

What we see in the #ShoutYourAbortion movement is a perfect example of how Godlessness works. The pattern and progression of sin is always the same.

First you sin. Second you justify your sin. Third you advocate your sin.

Nobody who is proudly sinning wants to feel guilty for it. That is why these outrageous and mind blowing atrocities always turn into movements.

Sin doesn’t want company, it wants a support group.

The more people who will do what you do, and support you on it, the easier it is to numb the guilt. That is why women are shouting their abortion. That is why women are rallying together and affirming each other’s “choices.”

“If God does not exist, everything is permitted.”

A world without God is a scary, scary place. Anything is permitted. Ending abortion won’t happen by simply holding up pro-life signs and shutting down a few Planned Parenthoods (although that’s still good!).

The only way to truly end abortion is by putting God back on His rightful throne.

Until pro-choice women see God as the author and creator of life, they will not value the unborn. Until pro-choice women submit to God’s standard of truth and morals, they will continue to make up their own.

Until God is served above self, personal happiness will always come first.

As Christian women, we need to fight this battle first and foremost through prayer.

We must be in constant prayer for the hearts of the women in our nation. Second, we need to be ready to engage the lost with sincere hearts of compassion, love and truth. Thirdly, we need to boldly stand for righteousness and do all we can to protect the lives of innocent babies.

Let’s talk about it.

  • Do you see abortion as being an issue of the heart? Why or why not?
  • Do you think it’s possible for a woman to love God and love abortion at the same time?
  • What’s your opinion on the “shout your abortion” movement? Is it biblical?

    Even though I would never consider having an abortion (unless it was completely nessicary for my health – I have a complex heart condition), I think women should definatly have the choice

    • GirlDefined says:

      Hey Mella, I’m so sorry about your complex heart condition. As far as abortion is concerned for other women, what brought you to the conclusion that abortion is a good and acceptable choice for women?

      • Mella TJ says:

        It’s not that I think it’s acceptable, I just don’t think anyone has the right to restrict anyone else’s behaviour. They can make their own mistakes if they wish to. Thank you for your kind words! 🙂

  2. qkit says:

    Today I learned: Women who don’t prescribe to one specific set of narrow beliefs are exactly like Hitler. Great message!

    • GirlDefined says:

      Hey Qkit, thanks for commenting, but it sounds like you didn’t read the entire article. The point is, there is very little difference between murdering Jews and murdering babies. Both are valuable lives created in the image of God. Both should be respected and given equal opportunity.

      • Dolly says:

        That is absolutely right, ladies!

      • Naomi says:

        There actual is a significant difference and the fact that you had to resort to comparing these people to Hitler is sad. Murdering one person is very different than systematically seeking to eliminate and entire race of people. Murdering one person because you feel that they are preventing you from living your life to its fullest is different than kidnapping millions of people, enslaving them, and then destroying them. That doesn’t make murder a good thing. But you will get nowhere by saying that these women are malicious mass murderers. They aren’t. And you know it.

        This article is, again, designed to make you and your readers feel superior to the women you are talking about and it, frankly, makes me ashamed to be one of your readers, since you think I’m so insecure that I need you to pander to me with this.

        • GirlDefined says:

          Hey Naomi,

          Thanks for sharing your thoughts! I sincerely appreciate that you can disagree but still be civil about it.

          The truth is, the abortion industry has deep roots tied extremely close to Hitler’s agenda. Margaret Sanger (Planned Parenthoods Founder) was a huge promoter of birth control and abortion for the purpose of racial and social purification. She believed the “poor” should be sterilized. She called black people “weeds” and purposely opened abortions clinics in black neighborhoods as a means to eliminate them. Margaret Sanger’s dream was to create a race of thoroughbreds. Sound familiar?

          She was a wicked, evil woman, with a candy coated plan for eugenics…and she is the founder and “mother” of Planned Parenthood.

          Hitler murderer 8 million Jews. Margaret Sanger’s plan has murdered 50 million babies (and counting). Which one seems worse? Neither. They’re both EVIL to the core.

          Abortion has been pushed on women as “normal” and helpful ever since Roe v. Wade, but the results have proven nothing short of long term devastation, grief, and confusion for millions of women and families.

          Do I think women today choose “abortion” with the same motivation Margaret Sanger had? No. But I do think most women have been deceived by a massive lie of propaganda that says abortion is the answer to their problem. That murder is nothing more than a medical procedure. That a baby is just a lump of cells. That personal happiness is more important than a life. Women everywhere are being totally duped by PP and are suffering greatly as a result.

          Murder isn’t the answer to our problems. A fear of God, obedience to His Word, and respect for ALL life is.

  3. Jesusfreak17 says:

    Thank toy for pointing to the real issue here. It’s not even the action of sin but the intent and what’s in the heart behind the sin.

    • GirlDefined says:

      Thanks for commenting! Yes, so much of what we see in the culture is linked back to a deeper sin and heart issue. Abortion is a clear example of what happens when humans become their own judges of “morals and truth.”

  4. Dolly says:

    How can abortion possibly be considered moral? Abortion is killing an innocent life because you made a mistake and it doesn’t fit in to your timing. That is sick and ludicrous.

    • Elisabeth Grace says:

      100% agree.Everything someone does Will effect some part of there life if not all of it forever.

      • First Amendment says:

        There should be a space between your sentences.
        Do not capitalize “will.”
        And finally, I believe the word you’re looking for is “their.”

        • Rae says:

          You’re one to talk, Mr. “Jesus peached”. 😉

          • First Amendment says:

            Ok Rae.

          • First Amendment says:

            Still praying for me?

          • Rae says:

            Of course! Jesus himself said something along the lines of, ‘pray for your enemies and those who spitefully use you’. I’ll always pray for you, whether you like it or not!

          • First Amendment says:

            I’m not an enemy, and I’m not “spitefully using you.” I don’t hate you, regardless of what you might think. Whether you believe it or not, we worship the same God. Our differences in opinions and tactics of argument can and will strengthen both of our beliefs.

            We may disagree on abortion, homosexuality, feminism, the death penalty, gun control, but we both (I hope) want to better the world. A disagreement, however heated it may get, does not constitute hatred.


    • First Amendment says:

      I would go into greater explanation of why you’re wrong, but I don’t think you will read this. I’ll just say that you’re quite dumb to think abortions are caused by mistakes. Rape is not a mistake, neither is danger to the mother.
      Even if a woman does regret a pregnancy, she has the option under federal law to terminate it. Abortion ends a pregnancy, not a human’s life.

      • Dolly says:

        Ah, name calling. How mature.

        • queserasera says:

          It’s very mature to determine that all women who want abortions didn’t want the pregnancy because it “didn’t fit into their timing.” Women who get abortions do so for a variety of reasons, and you shame them all because they all made a “mistake.”

          • Rae says:

            You didn’t reply to her comment, you applied half of it to something else entirely. I agree with Dolly.

          • First Amendment says:

            First of all, I did reply to the comment. When I responded directly to Dolly, it was a reply. Because Dolly raised no profound points in her two-sentence post, I decided to enlighten her. I applied the WHOLE comment to an issue directly related to the original topic of discussion. I really don’t care who you agree with. I certainly don’t agree with 98% of commentators on this blog.

  5. SomethingBeautiful says:

    EVERY SINGLE ONE of these women are hurting, but the World says to be strong and independent. It says “don’t show anybody you are weak…” so they turn to stuff like #ShoutYourAbortion because causes like this gives them assurance and self-empowerment, but only for a little while. Abortion is a hard thing to deal with for the rest of your life. It creates pain that will affect many people down the road. I don’t see anything in it that is worth praising or boasting about. Even if they don’t show it, #ShoutYourAbortion is the mask women turn to in order to hide the pain.

  6. Victoria says:

    I think this entire “shout your abortion” movement is horrifying. Even for those who don’t believe in God, can’t we all agree that killing a tiny, developing human being is, at the very least, not something to celebrate? Do these women have no feelings of compassion or empathy at all? It is truly sad indeed. Even if they don’t believe in God, surely they must believe in science? And science allows us to know, without a shadow of a doubt, that by the time most women find out they are pregnant, the life inside them has already developed a rudimentary nervous system and circulatory system, complete with beating heart. A simple DNA test would prove that it is unequivocally human and its own unique being, separate from its parents with its own unique combination of characteristics. Honestly I’ve never understood how abortion could be up for debate at all. This is an area where both science and religion agree. There is no doubt that we’re talking about killing a human being here. And to do such a thing and then “shout it out” on social media is just sick. Sorry for the rant but this one really got to me. These people are more than just selfish, they’re sociopathic.

    • Jesusfreak17 says:

      I totally agree with the majority of what you said. However, be careful with the word “sociopathic.” Most of these women have been lied to, possibly to the point of brainwashing by our culture, by clinics, and the people around them. I fully share your feeling of horror but sometimes in order to understand someone you have to picture yourself in their place. What if you’ve never heard that a fetus has it’s own DNA and beating heart? All they hear is that it’s a bit of tissue. While these women probably wouldn’t participate in the shout it out campaign, I think a lot might be scared into it for fear of judgement or whatever. Compassion is key when we talk about something like this even in the midst of our own horror. While there may be sociopaths among them, the majority probably are lied-to sinners who don’t grasp what they’ve done.

      • Victoria says:

        You’re so right, of course. I think I was just in shock because I read some of the #shoutyourabortion tweets and they really upset me. I agree with you completely. Compassion is always the best response. And I never even considered that some women might not have all the information! Thank you for taking the time to write your reply. It’s definitely what I needed to hear!

        • Jesusfreak17 says:

          I totally understand. I haven’t read them personally but just hearing about it second hand upsets me. But our enemy isn’t people, its the forces of evil. You’re defiantly welcome, sometimes we all need a reality check about where others might be coming from!

      • Elisabeth Grace says:

        Your Soo right,it takes A lot for us to rember that if it weren’t for God’s Grace and the learning of humility.We could be right there too.Thanks for your refreshing and selfless comment.

    • First Amendment says:

      This post is highly offensive to a woman considering abortion. There is no scientific consensus as to when life begins, so your entire post– or should I say rant– is irrelevant. These people are not sociopathic, and you’re the one who could benefit from a little empathy.

      • Bisonhawk1 says:

        You call yourself First Amendment but you cry like a little girl when someone makes a statement you don’t agree with??!! You make me laugh troll! Just like a typical feminist. You can dish it out but you can’t take it in!!

        • First Amendment says:

          The lack of intelligence you exhibit is frankly quite entertaining. I myself am not considering abortion, but women who are deserve more than your classless judgment. I suggest you gain some of the respect Jesus peached.

  7. Rae says:

    “There should be no shame in having an abortion, if a woman decides that’s what she is going to do, she is almost certainly making the right decision.”
    So, if a woman decides that she wants to kill a person, she is “almost certainly making the right decision”?
    Society is soo going down the toilet!

    • First Amendment says:

      A fetus is not a person. One is dependent on a host for growth, much like a virus, and the other is capable of life on its own.
      You should learn the difference. They are not interchangeable.

      • Rae says:

        Soooo, you do realize that you were once a fetus, therefore, are calling yourself a virus? Also, look it up, a baby’s heart starts beating a mere 18 DAYS after conception, before most people figure out they’re pregnant. The baby’s brain’s foundation, the neural plate, forms even sooner, at 16 days. At 8 weeks, the baby’s brain is formed, and they are developing limbs, as well as a range of motions. This is about when the mother realizes she is pregnant. (If she was trying, possibly sooner). Most survivors of failed abortions have nightmares about the actual abortion procedure, as their baby-brain remembers it. Scientists have also proven that babies, or for you, “mere fetus'” feel intense pain during an abortion. So, according to you, a living organism, with a beating heart, fully formed brain, able to feel pain, able to move arms and legs that are distinctly human-like, is still not a human to you? WHAT?????? How?!?!?!?!?

        • First Amendment says:

          It seems you missed the fact that the virus was simply a metaphor. Hint: it was a metaphor. If you don’t know what that is, I suggest a dictionary.

          Next, I’ll disprove all of your “scientific” facts.

          First of all, the fetus’ heart beats at around 8-10 WEEKS.

          Brain development begins at 3-4 WEEKS.

          However, these are irrelevant. Fetuses are incapable of feeling pain when most abortions are performed. The cortex development of the brain is necessary for pain perception and is not functional until the 26th week of fetal development. This is long after most abortions are performed.

          Endorsements of this belief: American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, which stated that that there is “no legitimate scientific information that supports the statement that a fetus experiences pain.” Additionally, the University of California at San Francisco study said fetuses probably can’t feel pain until the 29th or 30th week of gestation. Abortions RARELY occur that late.

          And finally, according to Stuart W. G. Derbyshire, PhD, Senior Lecturer at the University of Birmingham, “…fetuses cannot be held to experience pain. Not only has the biological development not yet occurred to support pain experience, but the environment after birth, so necessary to the development of pain experience, is also yet to occur.”

          Abortions are typically very successful procedures, and fetuses of failed abortions typically die in delivery. What’s interesting about the psychology of abortion isn’t tied to the fetus, but to the mother. Women who are denied abortions suffer from depression and mental health issues compared to women who got abortions. 95% of women did not regret getting abortions.

          But now let’s discuss the logistical aspect of this debate. You do realize that making abortion illegal subordinates women’s bodies for the protection of embryos, right? The “right to life” doesn’t apply to somebody else’s body. People can refuse to donate their organs if doing so would save another’s life. Essentially, a “right to life” is a right to not have someone else’s will imposed on your body. Do pregnant women not have this right as well?

          No, a fetus is not a human to me. WHAT?????? How?!?!?!?!?
          If a fetus is a human, then an egg is also a chicken. A tree is also a book. A thread is also a shirt.
          An embryo is not a human because it’s incapable of life on its own. Much like a virus, it is reliant on a host for growth. (Yes, this is still a metaphor.)

          • Rae says:

            Actually, referring to the fetus, you used the word “like”, therefore, it was a simile, not a metaphor. You get YOUR dictionary.
            How do you justify the fact that abortions increase a woman’s risk of breast cancer, depression, and various infections and bleeding, as well as make it difficult for them to get pregnant again if they actually want to, scars their uterine lining, and causes symptoms similar to morning sickness.
            Also, their bodies aren’t their own, but are temples of God, given to them/us. The mother-to-not-be should be able to choose if they at least get to see an ultra-sound, right? Often, even women to ask to see one are denied that right be the doctor who would perform the abortion, because these doctors only get paid if the abortion occurs, and they realize that if the mother sees the ultrasound, or her baby being “humanized”, she is 95% less likely to go through with the abortion.
            Associations like Planned Parenthood are also often involved in selling the body parts of aborted babies, and have a past, and most likely still happening in the present, of pressuring young women into getting an abortion they don’t really want. The whole abortion industry is corrupt.
            Back to the original topic; how can you call a living organism with (a) functioning brain, heart, and limbs, who looks EXTREMELY human, anything but a human being?
            In your 6th paragraph you stated, “endorsements of this belief”. It’s a belief, not actual science.
            I live in a country that you might not associate with North Korea, but it is similar because of the fact that there are no laws in place to protect unborn babies, meaning that a baby can be aborted until right before the minute of birth, or later! A minute before birth. How can you say that the being that is about to emerge, is still not human? How can you? I’m shaking my head right now as to what this world has come to. Is there no sanctity of life anymore? Why is suicide still illegal then? Or euthanasia? Or murder?

          • First Amendment says:

            I assumed you’d actually research the definition of a metaphor, but since you still don’t get it, here it is: “a figure of speech in which a word or phrase is applied to an object or action to which it is not literally applicable.” All similes are metaphors. Virus are not fetuses, though I compared them for the point of the argument. It’s rather silly that you’re debating the merits of metaphor.

            Abortion, like any other medical procedure, has side effects for some people. This does not mean it’s not a valuable procedure– people have severe side effects from chemo that fights aggressive cancer.

            Yeah, your ultrasound study was also debunked. Check ABC News.

            98.4% of women who saw the ultrasound STILL got the abortion. A woman’s body is hers, and it’s honestly ludicrous that you would think to force your religious views on another person, who may not share your convictions. Keep your piety to yourself.

            A fetus doesn’t look human. If you think it does, great. But don’t tell women what their unborn child is or isn’t.

            Yeah, it is science. I’d love to know why you don’t think the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists or UC Berkeley aren’t reputable sources. Please tell me; it’s highly entertaining.

            PP was accused of selling fetal parts only to have the conviction overturned. Ironically, the pro-life group that “secretly recorded” PP was indicted.

            I’m assuming you live in Canada. I really don’t care about your opinion on Canadian legislature. If you hate abortion that much, move to El Salvador.

            Murder and abortion are very different. One ends the life of a person, and one ends a pregnancy. The difference between them is choice. “But wait,” you’ll argue. “The precious baby doesn’t get to choose if it’s aborted or not!” The mother’s choice is more important than the choice of the fetus that relies on her body to grow. Essentially pro-life subordinates a mother’s life below that of a cell mass.

          • Rae says:

            You use a lot of assumptive language in your arguments, just an observation.
            Please remember that YOU were once a fetus. What if your mother had decided to abort you? Your MOTHER is pro-life. Try to remember that, and on a completely un-related note, let’s keep this conversation civil, shall we? Do you know what this is? Let me tell you: it’s a fetus! It could’ve been your first baby picture! Awww! Still think you aren’t human?

            You called me pious. I’d take that as a compliment, but you obviously meant it as an insult. You also don’t know me. I’ve dealt with quite a bit of **** in my short lifetime. (Pardon my French.) You have no idea who I am, how old I am, where I live. You know nothing about the struggles God has given me to deal with.
            Sorry about the whole “metaphor vs. simile” thing. I assumed that you would’ve known that a simile is merely a specific type of metaphor. My bad!

            You hate my opinion, suck it up, buttercup! I’m keeping it, muchos gracias!

            Your statement, “check ABC news”. You Americans really don’t have any opinion that differs from what so-called “credible” news agencies and “scientists” spoon-feed you. Just as we all thought. Thanks for confirming that stereotype. To any contradictions you might pose: “Fox News”. ‘Nuff said.

            I have noticed that you are trolling on other comments as well, and I have no tolerance for this kind of trivial nit-picking. You don’t agree with what I say? That doesn’t matter. I’m my own person, society doesn’t tell me what to do, say, or think. My ultimate calling is to please my Father God, and I know that you might not agree with my statements of facts, but I hope and pray that one day you may find something out for yourself, instead of just taking what everyone else gives you for fact. You will always be in my prayers, even though I only know your username.
            Also, by your overly-defensive comments, here and elsewhere, am I correct in assuming that you once either had an abortion, or had a hand in getting someone one? If I’m not, I apologize in advance. You don’t have to answer that, P.S. Just to yourself.
            One last tidbit of learned wisdom, that you probably don’t want to hear, but here goes: “The truth hurts.”

          • First Amendment says:

            My mom was and is pro-choice. She CHOSE to have me. That’s the basis of a choice. Not every mother is pro-life. Sorry!

            Yeah, duh, I know I was a fetus. I understand basic biology. This in no way proves anything– just because I was once a fetus does not mean that I don’t think a woman should choose what to do with her body.

            I do understand a metaphor vs simile. I assumed you’d know that a metaphor is a simile, but since you still struggle to grasp that, I really don’t care.

            Funny thing. Fox News was recently ranked as one of the least-trustworthy news sources. To reference it is really a shame and shows your lack of interest in partisan press. It’s really hard to refute scientific evidence that’s conducted by reputable agencies and published in scientific papers. To think that science spoon-feeds me could not be farther from the truth– I synthesize a variety of evidence from Biblical, cultural and scientific perspective to formulate opinions.

            Discussion actually strengthens viewpoints, as it forces us to understand what we believe. I’ve never stepped foot inside a Planned Parenthood, had an abortion, or known anyone who has had an abortion.

            We all worship God differently. Some of us find Him through abortion. Some of us don’t. It’s fine if you believe that abortion is morally wrong. But don’t try to distort scientific evidence to support your agenda. Certainly don’t judge women who have abortions. Their relationship with Jesus is their own.

          Thank you for entertaining me. Your inability to promote genuine discussion and resort to weak jokes (or should I say, attempts at jokes) never fails to make me laugh!

          • Bisonhawk1 says:

            Ha, your a good opponent! I’m not here to debate! Just here to promote the nationalism of the ideology on this site. Believe me I have intelectual discussions at the appointed times. But there is more at stake here than simple science. Though I am a staunch believer in science, faith is the evidence of things hoped for, and this is what we have lost as a nation. If the appointed time comes that you are ready to see that, you know where to find me. Until then, I will see you on the battlefield.

            Nothing you say makes sense. You state that debate isn’t your objective, yet you continue to respond to my comments telling me why I’m wrong. We can have *intellectual* conversation when *you’re* ready to present an argument that doesn’t sound like the ramblings of a fifteen-year-old-boy with a superiority complex and shockingly fragile masculinity.

    Wow,that’s all I can say!!This is a really deep topic, and finally realizing I don’t have much wisdom,I’ll just say that there are Only two sides to this world the light side and the dark side,and if you take the Dark side it will consume you faster then you can get out of the way!!But if you take the light side you’ll never regret it, because it may require a lot of work and Lots of things that humans don’t like but in the end that’s the only way you’ll ever get what you really want.Which at the source is God.

    I have been working on a paragraph for school about the basis of morality and ethics. This has helped me put into words what this cultures ethics are. I have learned so much though all your post. Thank You!

    This is dumb. I respect your position on abortion, even though I personally disagree with it. How many people do you personally know that don’t believe in a god? I’m going to assume not many, or you’d understand that most atheists are perfectly nice, law-abiding people. You do not need to believe in a god to be a good person.
    You’re right about how holding signs and yelling at women who enter abortion clinics not ending abortion, but it certainly is far from a good thing. Going through an abortion is a stressful, inconvenient, and sometimes traumatic experience. Maybe these people should think about how they’re really affecting the people around them before doing something like this.
    You briefly mention compassion. Jesus Christ taught compassion. He hung out with debt collectors and prostitutes. He viewed them as people with thoughts and feelings, desires and circumstances. He certainly didn’t perpetuate this “them vs. us” mentality. Maybe this blog could use a little more compassion and empathy for others.

      Jesus preached repentance and the turning away from sins. He may have accepted those people, but he called for change, action, not wallowing in the mud. Read the book he said unless you repent of your sins you will by no means enter the kingdom of God. Last time I checked his words were not opinions, but the living breathing word of God.

      • First Amendment says:

        Jesus called for action because religion had turned into a means to judge lesser people. Jesus abolished the social order religion established. The biggest commandments he gave were to love God and love our neighbors. Creating an “us-versus-them” mentality does the opposite.

  11. thehappygirl says:

    This is honestly disturbing. Abortion is so selfish and so barbaric. I can hardly bear to think of how brutally these tiny human beings are being killed each day. If someone were to get killed the way babies are, the murderer would probably receive the death penalty or at least life in prison without parole! Babies are a precious gift from God, and it saddens me to think that some women are literally throwing their babies away when other women try so hard to get pregnant and can’t or want children but aren’t married. The one comforting thought I have is that those sweet little ones are with Jesus now and won’t experience anymore suffering.

    I think that it is definitely an issue of the heart. Repeating what the article says, when we don’t acknowledge God as Who He is (God), we become our own god and do what we please. In the days of Noah, every man did what was right in his eyes, and that’s the same thing going on here I believe. Abortion is doing what is “right” in the mother’s eyes, and not giving any thought to what she is really doing. I pray that we as a nation will realize what is truly going on here, and will stand up for what’s right!

    • First Amendment says:

      It’s selfish to have a child and raise it if you’re incapable of being a good mother. It’s selfish to tell a woman what she can and cannot do with her body. It’s selfish to make that extremely difficult choice for her.

      Abortion isn’t a simple right/wrong issue. Everyone approaches abortion differently, but one person’s opinion cannot dictate another’s.

      • Bisonhawk1 says:

        Your an internet troll, you don’t see the cycle do you. Women are encouraged to give their best years of fertility to becoming an independent working woman, sleep around, then flush the kid when all the running around causes an inconvenience. Your not about solutions your about endless talk and confusion!

        • First Amendment says:

          You can’t spell “you’re” correctly. I am about debate and intelligent discussion. Come back when you can handle that.

          • Bisonhawk1 says:

            I didn’t see you try to refute my argument, miss intelectual discussion. You corrected my spelling, but not my logic! Typical femtard lol!!

          • First Amendment says:

            Women can choose to work. Women can choose if they want to have children. Women can choose when they want to have children. Abortion is much more than a solution to a mere “inconvenience.” Maybe if the majority of anti-abortion leaders weren’t men, they’d have a little more compassion.

          • Rae says:

            Actually, I feel you don’t quite understand. Many women feel pressured into a career-before-kids lifestyle, and it is often not the lifestyle that they would have chosen if society wasn’t placing all these pressures on women to be “perfect, independent, don’t-need-no-man, sexy, etc.”
            Also, the majority of anti-abortion leaders AREN’T men. They’re women. And women are the ones who often lash out the hardest and with most ferocity, usually because they have had an abortion in the past, and the guilt causes them to panic, and swear at protesters like myself. Also, they tend to make comments on comments like this one, attempting to defend the position that deep down inside of them they realize is wrong, despite their attempts to bury it.

          • First Amendment says:

            77% of anti-abortion leaders are men.

            Not all women want to have kids and they are allowed to work outside of the house.

          • Bisonhawk1 says:

            Battles aren’t fought with compassion. This is where you have missed the mark. Abortion does not come from a heart of compassion so therfore I will not engage from a position of empathy. When men ran the household we went to the moon, we had less debt as a nation. We had job security, and could come home to a woman who was feminine and beautiful, there was very little divorce, and children knew who mom and dad were. Now we have a 50/50 divorce rate. A debt ceiling that keeps climbing, gender confusion, and a fatherless generation. Where is your compassion now? No not compassion but a worship of self and a snarky handle of a woman who obviously wishes to be a man.

          • First Amendment says:

            This is morphing into a discussion far away from its original purpose. But anyways…
            When men ran the world, they screwed it up.
            Men started the Crusades.
            Men went to war in 1914, and again in 1937.
            Men bombed Japan.
            A man starved the Russians.
            A man killed the Jews.
            And actually, Russia beat us to the moon!
            When men ran the world, they screwed it up.

            Also, I’m not sure how women screw up the national debt. You seem to think that women working somehow means we spend more money. That’s bogus.

          • Bisonhawk1 says:

            The crusades??!! you mean the Catholic churches fight against islam???!!
            Stalin was not a christian, and had no values.
            Hitler’s persecution of the Jews went wayyy to far, however the Jews were extorting the German people during a time when Germany was very weak. Something had to be done. ( I do not agree at all with the holocaust by the way).Many historians have said that Hitler’s rise could have been prevented had the league of nations not put such harsh restrictions on Germany. Russia never made it to the moon but they did beat us to outer space by the way. Men did not screw up the world mankind did by the way.

          • First Amendment says:

            You make Islam seem like an inferior religion. It’s not. In many ways both religions (Christianity and Islam) are similar in monotheism.
            THE JEWS WERE NOT “EXTORTING” THE GERMANS! The League of Nations and its blame of Germany for WW1 had nothing to do with the Jews as targets of Hitler’s plans for mass genocide. The Jews were a highly successful people. When you say that “something had to be done,” what do you mean? Maybe we shouldn’t have killed all of them, but hey, maybe just a few?! (Sarcasm.)
            The point wasn’t if those people were morally correct. The point is the perpetrators of many world catastrophes in history were men. Unlike you believe, the world WAS NOT better when men had power.
            Men were the face of mankind. Men screwed up he world.

            “Men still run the world, and I’m not sure it’s going so well.” (Sheryl Sandberg, COO of Facebook.)

    Also, Margaret Sanger wasn’t racist. That’s a common argument I’ve seen in the comment thread used to denounce Planned Parenthood. While you may not agree with the missions of the organization, you can’t make up racist lies about Sanger.

  14. Candy Renee says:

    What I dont understand is even if you remove God from the argument, how anyone could feel abortion is morally sound. Generally from my reading a baby has a heart beat two weeks after conception. If death is is declared by when the heart stops then logic would tell us that when the heart starts beating life begins. Even when we look to Science it tells us every organisim is a living thing. This would suggest that from conception the child was living. Then let’s consider life in general. I wonder if any of the ladies that are pro -choice are vegan or for animals rights? Is a animals life more sacred then the life of a tiny human? I also can’t help but wonder if any of these ladies are in favor of the death penalty? To save the life of the guilty and then end the life of a innocent? (BTW I am personally against the DP) I value all life, I was to tread lightly on this precious earth we were given but I value human life more! Then let’s compare what differences a child that isnt aborted to one that that is. NOTHING! Absolutely nothing ! Expect one was wanted and one was not. One will have a mother who calls them her baby. The other will have one that refers to it as a fetus. One will have a ultrasound eagerly anticipated and the other wlll have all opportunities to see him or her avoided at all cost. One will be embraced and the other will not. One will be laid on a tired but rejoiceming mothers chest and the other in a medical waste bag. Remember though they are still one in the same. A innocent child. They feel pain and are more aware if their surroundings then many would like to think. If a baby In utero can’t feel then why does the ultrasound tech push on a mother stomach? Why? Because the baby can feel and will respond to movements. This is also demonstrated if a mom to he has a amniocentesis. The baby will recoil away from the needle. These are all “Godless” arguments. Nevernind that many women regret it almost immediately, or become depressed. Then there is the fact that while research does not directly link abortion and infertility it can link botched abortions to infertility

  15. Candy Renee says:

    Add in that many women tend to regret their abortions,become depressed and deal with other emotional consequences and in reality it can be harmful to the woman as well. The consequences to abortions are real. Once someone has a abortion it is done. There is no having a change if heart, no way to make yourself stop thinking every year on your due date how old that baby would be today, would they look like you, could they have been your best friend? Please be there for your friends that are pregnant and facing a difficult road ahead, pray for them, and be there for them after they have the baby too. They will need it. Keeping their baby will be hard but with God, good friends and family they can survive and even thrive.

  16. Jason Garrick Shirtz says:

    wait wait wait. This argument started with an example of Godwin’s law??

    “When a woman dismisses the idea of God from her life, she does exactly what Hitler did. She becomes her own god. She is now her highest authority. She is now her moral compass. She is now the one who decides right from wrong.”

    Can we just all admit that whether we are pro-choice, pro-life, or sanely in-between that this was the wrong way to start the discussion by the blogger??

  17. Connor Russell says:

    okay, as a gay man I have no right to speak on this but I honestly don’t think you do either considering IT IS

  18. NoName says:

    Okay, I get that some people may say abortions are wrong. That’s their opinion. They are entitled to that opinion, and I respect their opinion. I don’t agree with it, but I still respect it. I believe that abortions are good and it isn’t what you’re saying above. I also noticed that you made it seem as though an abortion is like a happy little rainbow. Sure, once you realize the good effects of having an abortion on your life, you know that you made the right decision, but the next few weeks after having an abortion are horrible. There’s pain, there’s a lot of stuff happening with your body, you feel kind of empty, and you wonder if you made the right choice. In the end, you will usually (but not always) see that you did indeed make the right decision for your life. If you know that you cannot take care of a baby and do not want the child to end up orphaned or worry about the child that you have no control over and you think that an abortion is right for you after you do as much research as you possibly can, then I say go for it.

    • V says:

      So you believe that if, right now some woman has a child and he’s born perfectly healthy but after a couple weeks with him she can’t take it and can’t provide that she has the right to murder that child? That makes little sense if you do and if you don’t. Sorry but killing a child for any reason once so ever is MURDER and it’s wrong… I understand there are some women who have been raped and then get pregnant but… that doesn’t give them a reason to murder because they didn’t want that child. Abortion has given young people who shouldn’t be lying around a new way to spread more disease and get away from the consequences of their wrongdoing, now they can lay around when ever and keep doing it without dealing with the responsibility that comes with having a gift before marriage, they do it get rid of the child by killing it and so over…. now the generations to come and that live now have no responsibility once so ever and they live like children and act like children being immature and never really dealing with the real issue.
      I feel for every woman that has an abortion, and my heart hurts and their mistake and murder of a innocent life, but they will be held accountable for their deeds of they don’t ask for forgiveness and turn away from the evil deed. They need to know God loves them and their baby and that he gives them away to be forgiven and cared for far better then anyone or thing ever could!
      Everyone who says their against murder is lying when they promote abortion, a person a human being has the right to live no matter what age or stage in life. Please reconsider, because every moment that you live and stand for abortion leaves you responsible for murdering billions of human beings and that is a shameful horrid life to live.

      • SaltyWitch says:

        “there are some women who have been raped and then get pregnant but… that doesn’t give them a reason to murder because they didn’t want that child.” Uhmm yes it actually does. Beside the trauma that follows something like that, you actually expect a rape victim to put her health and personal safety in danger and carry this unwanted alien parasite inside her for 9 months? Ridiculous. And assuming she doesn`t die from birth complications, maybe she doesn`t have the money or mental stability to actually raise that child properly and give it a good life, instead just bringing it into the world so it can suffer. Also, a fetus in early stages isn`t even a baby or a life form. It`s a clump of cells so you`re not actually murdering anything lmao.

  19. Nah I’m Gay says:

    It doesn’t matter what you think. Banning abortion takes away the bodily autonomy of other women. Bodily autonomy is a basic human right that means that even if my father is dying and I’m the only one who’s blood can save him, I don’t have to give it to him. It’s in my body, I get to choose what happens to it. A fetus is a guest in a woman’s body, and it uses resources from her body to survive. According to bodily autonomy, the woman can’t be forced to continue sustaining it. It requires the woman’s continuous consent to use her body.
