“I stand with other believers who protect the life of thousands of unborn children!” – Carenet.
This week, the New York state Legislature passed a bill that makes it legal for doctors and other health care professionals, such as midwives and physician assistants, to perform abortions up until birth for any reason in the state. They claim, “That here in New York, women’s health matters. We’re saying here in New York, women’s lives matter. We’re saying here in New York, women’s decisions matter.”
This legislature passed says that women’s health does NOT matter and women’s lives DO NOT matter. Is health just physical health? Or is it the health of the whole person: body, soul, and spirit.
Emotional reactions following abortion are more common than physical side effects.
Most women reported that the abortion affected them more than they ever anticipated.
The feelings that occur after abortion have been so prominent that they were given the name Post Abortion Syndrome (PAS). It is very similar to Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome (PTSD) and can take years to recover. PTSD often occurs after an individual has suffered an event so stressful and so traumatic that this person is unable to cope with this experience in a healthy manner.
The Reproductive Health Act removes abortion from the penal code and further notes in part that: “Every individual has the fundamental right to choose or refuse contraception or sterilization. Every individual who becomes pregnant has the fundamental right to choose to carry the pregnancy to term, to give birth to a child, or to have an abortion, pursuant to this article.”
I think that woman’s choice was before she got pregnant, not after. When she gets pregnant, she is carrying another human being inside her. The fact that she cannot see that human being with the naked eye does not mean that that human being does not exist, or that this human being has no rights. This human being has a beating heart, it has viable organs, it has feelings. Ask fetal surgery experts who do fetal surgeries in vitro for infants in their mothers’ womb.
It’s bad enough when the abortion happens on its own, or when the woman has an abortion because of medical reasons. The mother then needs to go through abortion care therapy for guilt, grief, depression, and loss.
She needs to give that baby a name and bury the unborn child to get closure for her grief.
What will those mothers suffer in the future for making a decision of aborting their babies right before birth for ANY REASON? ANY REASON? Seriously?
How can she abort the child after feeling that infant move in her belly for months? After seeing her baby on the ultrasound and seeing his heart beating, his feet and arms moving and his facial features.
Is it ok that if a woman in a moment of hopelessness, in a moment of confusion, in a moment of fear, a moment of indecisiveness decides to abort her baby, should we help her or try to prevent her? Is that we call freedom: celebrating murder!
Do we love that woman enough to help her see that what she is about to do is not solving her problem but actually adding to her plight? That what she calls freedom is actually murder?
My freedom ends when it infringes on someone else’s liberty or when it puts someone else’s life in danger.
Those women’s so-called freedom is putting those infants’ lives in danger.
“Bernard Nathanson, who was an abortion doctor who admittedly presided over more than 60,000 abortions, including performing an abortion on his own child. He was instrumental in advancing the pro-abortion agenda in the 1960s and 70s, even co-founding the National Abortion Rights Action League (NARAL). Yet he eventually came to a pro-life conviction and subsequently became a pro-life champion. His own description of abortion is chilling, “The abortion holocaust is an evil torn free of its moorings in reason and causality, an ordinary secular corruption raised to unimaginable powers of magnification and limitless extremity.””
And we dare celebrate murder? Is this how low we have stooped?
