Women around the globe who are giving birth understand and appreciate doulas. Doulas are important to pregnant women because their sole purpose is to provide the kind of physical emotional and informational support during their labor and birth that they need.
Millions of women every year appreciate having a doula by their side to help them have a safe memorable and empowering birthing experience. Their role as a caregiver during the birthing experience is distinct and separate from the role of the physician.
But just as abortion advocates have twisted pregnancy and turned it into a problem that abortion should supposedly solve, they are also twisting the positive life-affirming role of a doula and turning it into someone who encourages women to take the lives of their own children.
Enter the concept of the abortion doula.
I’m not sure what the role of an abortion doula is. Instead of yelling “push push push” does she yell “kill kill kill” during the abortion? And how do you go from assisting women to celebrate the birth of a beautiful baby in one circumstance to cheering her on as the abortionist sucks her baby into a tube in another?
Here is more from an abortion activist who is pushing the unbelievably warped and twisted concept of the abortion doula, including comments from one abortion Doula who has been helping women kill their babies for eight years:
Jessica Shaw, a founding member of Action Canada on Sexual Health and Rights (ACSHR) and associate professor at the faculty of social work at the University of Calgary, said some women will want and need support during the process, and others won’t.
“What I hope is that that person is surrounded by as many loving family and friends that they want to have around,” Shaw said.
But, if they don’t have that support, there are abortion doulas who will provide it.
Andi Johnson (pictured) has been a full-spectrum doula for eight years and said it’s impossible to know how someone will feel during or after an abortion because it’s such a personal experience.
“Some people are affected big-time with an abortion, so it’s good to have support systems in place, and some people are completely relieved – it’s not a one-size-fits-all kind of thing.”
“Maybe they don’t have a really supportive friend or family or a partner who is both supportive and knowledgeable,” she said. “My role is to be their biggest advocate and their biggest cheerleader – no matter what they’re feeling about themselves or what other people are telling them about themselves.”
A cheerleader for abortion? Wow.
