In another blog post describing what pro-lifers have always said about abortion- that it wasn’t for penniless teens who had been raped, but abortion on demand was just that- abortion on demand for the rich as well.
A blogger named Pippa, who says that she serves as a Youth Representative to the UN for The Jane Goodall Institute, has described her hours inside an abortion clinic.
She begins, “What struck me most during my four and a half hours in the abortion clinic was the variety of women who were there. It wasn’t full of pregnant teens that looked strikingly similar to Ellen Page in Juno. While there were a few of those, there were also 30-year-olds with designer handbags and rocks on their ring finger and 20-something recent college grads who looked like they’d reluctantly taken a day off from their swanky downtown jobs.”
She said she was there to “support a friend”
As she sits inside this killing center she ponders her thoughts on abortion, “Despite studying medical ethics in college, I’m not sure when a fetus should be treated as legally human, and I don’t know how I would feel about the idea of removing something that was growing inside of me. Treating it as if it were a pernicious weed, rather than a bundle of cells with at least the potential of becoming a living and breathing child.“
No matter how much you sugar coat abortion it is always conflicting to those who choose it or stand for it. Because deep down inside each woman, she knows that what they are removing is indeed a child, as Lisa Brown who comments on Pippa’s blog states, “I believe that legal abortion should be available and a woman’s choice. But I also know firsthand, that something is lost, something is mourned. Not a person, per se, but the possibility of what could have been had circumstances been different.”
Circumstances do not dictate when life begins.
