Abortion activists will twist and spin any topic to their advantage, including teaching children to stand up for the most vulnerable in today’s society.
A new Huffington Post piece criticized pro-lifers for bringing their children to marches and sidewalks outside of abortion clinics.
One abortion activist who spoke to the liberal news outlet went so far as to describe it as “religious and emotional abuse” to take a child or teenager to a pro-life event.
According to the report:
… children all over the country are party to anti-abortion protests at the behest of their parents and their parents’ religious groups. According to patients and clinic staffers that spoke to HuffPost, this participation sometimes crosses the line from simply attending a protest to engaging in harassment.
One volunteer clinic escort based in Atlanta, Karen, told HuffPost that at the clinic she volunteers at, she’s seen an increase in this kind of harassment since the 2016 election.
“Since the election, we have a group from Abolish Human Abortion (AHA) and they often bring at least one little girl to participate in holding giant signs and speaking into the wireless-amplified megaphone,” Karen said. “The little girl will read from the Bible or from an AHA script. It’s clear [these girls] have no real understanding of what they are reading.”
Karen recalled an incident in which one of these young girls looked at her and called her “evil.”
“With direct eye-contact she asked me, ‘Why are you doing this? Why do you want to make money off of murdering babies? Do you know you are evil? Do you know you will burn in hell?’” Karen told HuffPost. “It’s chilling to see young children used this way … I’ve seen babies being carried as props, and toddlers tagging along as props with the AHA group.”
And of course, abortion activists found a way to justify taking their own children to events like the pro-abortion Women’s March on Washington, D.C.

Steven Meyers, a clinical psychologist and professor of psychology at Roosevelt University in Chicago, claimed that children are ok participating in pro-abortion protests because they are very different from pro-life ones.
“The main difference between [the Women’s March and anti-abortion protests] is the amount of conflict and negative emotion that children are exposed to at these events,” Meyers said. “Peaceful and orderly marches have the advantage of allowing parents to share their values with their children in ways that are more likely to be constructive teaching experiences. High conflict demonstrations can become more volatile and potentially distressing to young children.”
Maybe Meyers did not watch the march, but the hateful, profanity-laced rhetoric that celebrities like Madonna and Ashley Judd were spewing from the stage was far from child-friendly or peaceful.
LifeNews also has documented a number of occasions when pro-abortion protesters made their children hold signs supporting abortion. In 2013 in Texas, one woman had her very young daughter hold a sign that read, “If I wanted the government in my womb I would f— a senator!” It was during a protest in support of late-term abortions.
The true abuse of children comes from the abortion industry and the activists who support it. Every year, nearly 1 million unborn children are butchered and killed for money inside abortion clinics across the country. Their mothers are lied to and often left hurting and alone after their child is dead.
Children seem to innately understand that babies in the womb deserve the same protections that they do. Often their voices are some of the most powerful witnesses to women who are considering abortion. They help women see the value of their unborn child and give them hope for the future.
