If they really cared about the good of the mother…
September 17, 2012
So often the pro-abortion movement claims to operate from a place of concern for the life, mental well-being, ‘rights’ of the woman, etc.
Ignoring the biologic reality that removing a human life from within the mother’s body is a vile and treacherous attack on not only that fetus but on his or her mother, they advocate abortion as a kind of sacrament which purports to guarantee a woman’s freedom in our sick, sad culture.
Much like those aid organizations who pass out condoms instead of cornmeal and counsel for better birth control for a people without wells for clean drinking water, pro-abortion activists insist that the child is always either a symptom of the problem, or the problem itself.
Forget that mom might need a scrip for Prozac or a few hours a week of housekeeping help or even intensive outpatient therapy. It’s much easier to prescribe infanticide or sterilization.
And yet, so few women protest, at least externally. So many simply nod their heads and swallow the lie, that something is wrong with the way they’ve been created, that their female bodies betray them at every turn, and that doctors and mental health professionals don’t have to take them OR their conditions seriously because it can surely be fixed with a pill, a patch or a quick ‘procedure.’
May God give strength to women who are resisting this lie, and may He give light to a culture so steeped in darkness that many more accept without question.
