Abortionist Ghazaleh Moayedi’s Mother’s Day column is difficult to get through, knowing the deceptions she weaves as she tries to paint a rosy picture of her work killing unborn babies.
Published in Glamour, Moayedi’s story centers around her own motherhood journey.
During her second year of medical residency as an OB-GYN, she became pregnant with her son. She said she was surprised that her co-workers frowned upon her for being pregnant while training as an abortionist.
“There were ‘jokes’ about forcing other residents to be on birth control to prevent spreading the disease,” she wrote.
At another point, a colleague asked her if she still planned to do abortions after she gave birth.
“I just thought it might be hard to do abortions once you have a baby yourself,” the colleague said.
“Nothing’s going to change,” she smiled in reply.
Though their attitudes may have surprised her, they displayed the very conflict that Moayedi ignored throughout her column – that an abortion kills an unborn child. That abortion work – for all the glowing, heroic terms she used to describe it – is troubling, even for most abortion workers.
What is so troubling about Moayedi is that she does not seem to feel troubled at all about killing unborn babies. Not even after becoming a mother herself.
“Holding my baby’s tiny hands in my own not only strengthened my commitment to providing compassionate abortion care, but also exposed how I needed to commit to supporting all mothers in all aspects of my care,” she wrote.

In the same breath, though, she admitted that women who have abortions are mothers.
There is no Mother’s Day card to celebrate abortion. There are Mother’s Day cards to celebrate giving hugs, wiping noses, and kissing boo-boos—actions that are seen as the core of how a mother expresses love for her children. For my patients who were not parents, and did not want to be at that moment, or who never want to be a parent, I recognize their abortions as an act of intentional motherhood. Choosing when to parent is an act of love. For my patients that were already parenting, I feel the deep love they had both for the children they had and for the pregnancies they were ending. Choosing an abortion is an act of love.
Later, she continued:
Recently, I had a patient encounter that reminded me of that conversation I had with my colleague during my pregnancy. My patient came to her abortion procedure without her partner or a friend, but with her two small children. She couldn’t secure childcare and couldn’t reschedule her abortion. … As I finished the five-minute abortion procedure, we laughed about motherhood as her other child watched videos on my phone. We laughed about how demanding and obstinate toddlers can be, about the tribulations of potty training, and about how absolutely strange that “Daddy Finger” song is. I was wrong: becoming a mother fundamentally changed everything.
Tragically, it did not change her for the good if she is more dedicated than ever to killing unborn babies. Mothers deserve support for themselves and their children. Abortion does not provide that support; it only destroys.
