The Masquerade is Over: Abortion Hurts Women
Why Abortion Advocates are Abandoning Choice
I’ve been thinking a lot about choice lately. As Americans, we're given the luxury of having all sorts of choices. Our mornings usually start off with choices, options and alternatives. Whether that is what route we take to work, what we wear or what kind of coffee we want- we have options. Personally, I love choices. Who doesn’t? But unfortunately, when it comes to abortion, choice has turned into quite the buzzword over the last forty years.
Cleverly, the pro-abortion lobby coined choice back in the 70's, and they have risen its' banner ever since. However, choice is quickly being removed from pro-abortion semantics. Choice sounds appealing, but at the end of the day, it’s simply rhetoric, a masquerade that no longer serves the pro-abortion agenda. In fact, in a recent Gallup poll, more Americans identified themselves as pro-life rather than pro-choice.
Earlier this year, Executive Vice President of Planned Parenthood Dawn Laguens announced that they would be changing their vernacular. According to Laguens, choice has become a frivolous word. I wonder what led them to that decision. Could it possibly be ...science, public opinion or the reality that states across America are closing abortion facilities? Just last week, the Planned Parenthood facility that Abby Johnson formerly operated in Bryan, Texas closed their doors.
No matter how you package abortion, women are realizing that it's a damaging choice, not just for the unborn child, but for their family as well. Thousands of women have revealed to the world what choice brought them: physical and emotional pain, regret and years of heartache.
After abortion, over 65% of women suffer from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and post abortive women are six-times more likely to commit suicide then women who have given birth. Just as disturbing is the plethora of scientific research that connects abortion with infertility and breast cancer. According to a recent Bangladesh study published in the Journal of Dhaka Medical College, women with abortion histories are twenty times more likely to develop breast cancer. This is very
troubling considering breast cancer is the greatest killing cancer among American women ranging between the ages of 20-59.
In addition, abortion advocates have to compete with scientific advances that prove babies in the womb can feel pain. Not to mention, ultrasounds that show unborn babies yawning, stretching, sucking their thumb, even smiling. It must be difficult to masquerade how abortion hurts women and their families with a word as amateur as choice.
Come to our conference this fall to hear from Dr. LanFranchi on the link between abortion and breast cancer.
