Abortion Activist Wants More Women to Brag About Their Abortions With “Affirming” Messages

An article for Mic highlights the strategies that pro-abortion advocates are employing to try to normalize a procedure that kills babies in the womb.

One such advocate in the southern U.S. has made it her goal to affirm people with the messages she shares about abortion.

“Many people have never seen an even slightly affirming message about abortion,” said Jaira Burke, the campaign manager for Amplify—a group dedicated to normalizing and publicizing abortion in the South. “So we believe it’s our job to fight the stigmatization that people receive for making a decision about their body and life that is personal and should not be politicized.”

This decision about women’s bodies and the unborn babies they are carrying, however, has been heavily politicized.

Georgia is one state in the South that approved spending up to $2 million to fund Crisis Pregnancy Centers in 2016. Last year, Georgia banned late-term abortions after 20 weeks.

The South has many states that have legislation that defends the unborn and supports their mothers, but there is a small subsection of activists fighting for “reproductive justice.” These activists have flown banners over festivals and canvassed in neighborhoods to discuss the pro-abortion issue.

The Mic article also discussed the coalitions made by different groups on the left to strike down pro-life legislation:

Activists in Georgia said that rallying with trans people who need access to reproductive care, along with immigrant groups fighting to keep families together, as well as with economic justice groups, has enabled them to survive in a hostile environment by sharing resources and organizing together.

One of the other strategies that the Amplify group has used to normalize and affirm abortion is to specifically discuss abortion when canvassing. By discussing abortion, they do not mean the facts about how an abortion procedure brutally ends an unborn baby’s life. They mean women’s stories of why they chose abortion and why they have no regrets.

“We are trying to start conversations, and that in itself is radical in the South, where people don’t talk about this,” Burke said.

Even though some organizations may try to normalize and affirm abortions, the truth remains: It is a procedure that eliminates a unique human life. Unborn children are the most defenseless of humans, and if these pro-abortion groups truly care about helping the disenfranchised and marginalized, they should think twice about the procedure that they glorify.
