Pro-abortion writer Danielle Campoamor wrote a heartbreaking column this week as she experienced the pain and grief of miscarrying a baby.
Writing for Romper, Campoamor described how she lost three babies to miscarriage and one to abortion, and in her eyes, the losses are the same.
“I’m miscarrying right now, and it’s only strengthening my beliefs about abortion,” she said.
Any woman who has experienced the heartbreak of a miscarriage will identify with Campamor’s grief. Even while she was typing, she said she was experiencing painful cramping from the loss of her unborn child.
“The well-known secret of miscarriages is that they’re not a clean process. The bleeding goes on, the cramps continue, and pieces of a future you only experienced in your mind are evacuated along with the contents of your now-empty womb slowly. My hopes for a sibling for my son are passing, and I can feel it all,” she wrote.
Campoamor then complained that she received sympathy when she miscarried her three unborn babies but not when she had an abortion.
There is a common misconception that the mom who miscarries is a very different person than the woman who aborts, but I’m here to say there is no difference. I am both of those women. I have had five pregnancies, one live birth, three miscarriages, and one abortion. In the eyes of those looking to curtail reproductive rights, I’m therefore one part family values, three parts deserving of pity, and one part going to hell for what I’ve done.
Later, she continued:
Miscarriage and abortion are sisters. Just like my body knew what to do when an abnormal embryo implanted itself in my uterus, my mind knew what to do when a healthy embryo found its way to the soft lining of my uterine wall back when I was 23 years old, in an unhealthy relationship, living paycheck-to-paycheck, unwilling and unable to be a mother. They haven’t always synced up, my body and my mind, but even separately they’ve known what to do at different times in my life. I do not regret my decision to have an abortion.
But there is a very big difference between miscarriage and abortion. To suggest that they are the same is extremely hurtful to millions of women who had no choice in their unborn babies’ deaths.

And that is exactly why miscarriage and abortion are different – choice. A woman who loses an unborn baby to miscarriage does not choose for her child to die. In many women’s eyes, a miscarriage is similar to having a born child die of natural causes. Some families even hold funerals and bury babies who were miscarried.
An abortion, on the other hand, is a woman’s choice to end her unborn baby’s life. In abortion cases, the intent is to end the baby’s life. On purpose.
Campoamor is grieving and deserving of sympathy for the loss of her children. If only she realized that all of her unborn babies were valuable human beings who deserved the chance to live until their natural deaths, whether she wanted them or not.
