#ProChoice #Twittiots

Excuse the language, but this one is really rude and vile.  I'm guessing the conversation was based on privacy rights.
@AmyNLuv is one of the newer pro-aborts on twitter, and hasn't yet looked in the mirror at her own hypocrisy.  She's complaining about pro-lifers using the pro-choice hash-tag, and in doing so, she uses the pro-life hash-tag. 
Amy, you FAILED!

Mother angry at lack of abortion counselling

After her termination was started, the teenager spoke to her father and decided to keep the baby. She later miscarried.A mother is angry her 15-year-old daughter wasn't counselled through the pros and cons of having an abortion until she was on the hospital bed and presented with the termination-inducing pill.

Napier woman Natalie* said it's only one of the things medical professionals could have handled better when her daughter chose to have a second-trimester termination.

Two years ago Natalie's daughter discovered she was pregnant after taking a store-brought pregnancy test. A scan by a doctor confirmed the test, revealing she was more than three months' pregnant.

Natalie, who was overseas at the time, said her daughter didn't feel she could confide in anyone and decided to have a termination.

Four weeks later, and after a number of consultations, her doctor arranged for her to see a counsellor at Hastings Hospital. Her daughter told the Star-Times she was given a piece of paper at the hospital and asked to read and sign it.

She said no one went through it with her or explained what it meant.

"I quickly skimmed through it... to get it over and done with," she said.

During the session the counsellor contacted Wellington Hospital and arranged for her to head down to the hospital that day, as Hastings Hospital cannot perform second-trimester abortions.

"At no time were the pros and cons of having a termination or keeping the baby discussed with her. They never sat down and went over anything like that," Natalie said.

"She just said, she got asked, `Do you not think you can be a mother?' and she said no." Natalie acknowledged more information may not have changed her daughter's mind as "at the time she didn't want the baby".

Her daughter was given petrol and accommodation vouchers, then drove to Napier to pack her bags. Her boyfriend's sister drove her to Wellington.

Natalie wondered why her daughter wasn't at home with the nanny, so rang her estranged husband. When he discovered where his daughter was, he drove to Wellington.

"He was devastated," she said.

By the time he reached his daughter, she'd already been given laminaria – a cervix dilator and labour inducer. Natalie said she was told that once she started, she couldn't turn back.

"She didn't even know what the procedure involved. She knew nothing about the development stage of the baby. I think they should be told that," she said.

"Apparently, she thought she was going to be put to sleep and she'd wake up and the baby would be gone. Was she capable of making that decision? Was it an informed choice?"

Natalie said the hospital staff handed her a pill and said she needed to take it to "get the rest of it going".

However, after talking to her father and hearing that she would have her parents' support, she became unsure about proceeding with the abortion.

That's when she talked to someone about the pros and cons of having a second-trimester termination.

As a result, she decided to keep the baby, but doctors told her there was a chance she could miscarry.

A month later, having named the baby and decided upon a teen parent unit, she did miscarry.

"She ended up having to deliver her," Natalie said. "It was awful."

Now 17, her daughter has a tattoo on her back with the baby's name and a set of little footprints. She has said if she'd had to tell her parents, things would have turned out differently.

Under section 38 of the Care of Children Act 2004, a female of any age can consent to an abortion. She does not have to inform her parents or guardians.

Family groups are calling for a law change after the Star-Times reported that a mother was horrified when her 16-year-old daughter had an abortion facilitated by the girl's school counsellor.

*Names have been changed

- Sunday Star Times


This article highlights the importance of parental consent laws in the United States (and elsewhere).  Had this young woman's parents been notified, she would have a happy healthy 2 year old right now.  Instead, she has a tatoo with her babies name, and will endure years of regret knowing that her baby died because of her actions.

There's Something Amiss in Pro-abort Story

A story appeared today in Salon titled "Abortion Saved My Life".  The author, had a placental abruption, which can indeed be life threatening, for both the mother and the fetus.  But was it in this case?  I have my doubts  Not that the pregnancy was in danger, but rather that the situation was as critical as the story leads some to believe.  Something just doesn't add up.
To begin with, she was seeing an "OB/GYN who specializes in treating fibroids and endometriosis", not one who specializes in high risk pregnancy.  This makes no sense, considering the woman was having issues with bleeding from the beginning of her pregnancy, and was told by her doctor that the pregnancy was very high risk.
I was taking an afternoon nap when the hemorrhaging started. Laying in bed with my toddler napping in his room, and waking up to find blood gushing up my body is an experience I wouldn’t wish on anyone. The placental abruption that my doctor had listed as a possibility was happening and I was going to have to do my best to take care of both of us. Mind you, my husband was at work and my not quite 2 year old sure couldn’t dial 911 for me so I had to make it to the phone & make arrangements for the sleeping toddler as well as his older brother before I could leave the house.
In the real world, you dial 911 to get help as soon as possible.  As for making arrangement for the kids, it was probably done in a quick call to a friend or relative, while she was waiting on help.  That is, if she waited on help at all.  No mention was made of EMT's or an ambulance.  Perhaps someone drove her to the hospital.  Perhaps she drove herself.
The woman and her husband had previously discussed aborting this baby. 
When we found out (that standard pregnancy test before surgery is necessary after all) I talked it out with my husband and we debated aborting (I got as far as the clinic), before ultimately deciding that we would try to make it work.
I'm guessing that with the bleeding issues, along with the earlier thoughts of abortion, she wasn't emotionally attached to this baby.  While at the hospital, I assume the ER, she was seen by the doctor on call. 
The doctor on call didn't do abortions.
As you read the story, you might notice that the woman's personal OB/Gyn was not called.  MY doctor would be the first person I called in an emergency.  Ok, maybe the second, the first being 911.  Perhaps her doctor didn't perform abortions?   Also, no doctor is going to let a woman bleed to death, if he/she can do something to stop it. 
When pro-aborts read her story, they will read it as,  "Woman almost died because doctor didn't do abortions". 
It's one more story the pro-aborts will add to their arsenal to put the pro-life cause in the bulls-eye.  It's one more spin for "abortion on demand".  It's one more sad attempt to force doctors to kill babies against their conscience.
Abortion on demand is what her story is all about.  It's sad really, that young impressionable women, and men, fall for this kind of stuff without question.  They need to wake up and smell the fowl.

Texas' Pre-Abortion Sonogram Law

From CNN, "Texas law requires sonograms, explanations before abortions"

A Texas abortion law, effective September 1, will require women to undergo an ultrasound before obtaining an abortion.

Women seeking an abortion in Texas will have to view a picture of the embryo or fetus and hear a description of its development before having the procedure, under a law that takes effect September 1.

Needless to say, pro-aborts are not liking this.  They see ultrasound as invasive.  No, they really don't, but that's the best they can come up with.  Sticking a foreign object in the uterus to remove 'the products of conception'? Now that's invasive!

Critics say the new law is unnecessary.

"What no one is focusing on is that this is a mandate to humiliate women who want an abortion," said Yvonne Gutierrez, vice president for public affairs at the Planned Parenthood Trust of South Texas.

No, the law is not there to humiliate women.  The law is there to protect women from aborting what you've told them is 'just a clump of cells'.  Ultrasound will allow them the opportunity to see and hear exactly what's going on in their uterus. 

"It's going to make it more difficult for women to get an abortion," Gutierrez said, calling it the most stringent sonogram law in the country.

Yes it will, that's the point!

The law, she says, "will strengthen informed consent and bring abortion closer to standards that are set for other surgical procedures." - Elizabeth Graham, director of Texas Right to Life

I can't honestly say that this law was put in place to bring abortion closer to standards set for other surgical procedures, but it's ok with me.  This law will allow women the opportunity to make truly informed decisions.  And that's how it should be.

Pro-abort Admits It's a "Baby" in the Womb

We've all heard the rhetoric.  It's not a baby!  Yeah it is, and this pro-choicer admits it. Sad thing is, if she had not wanted her baby, she had the legal right to kill it.  What kind of people think it's ok to kill a baby?


Canadian Pro-aborts Are Sweating

You know, it may seem like I'm picking on Abortion Gang, but when I'm looking for blog material, they make it so easy!

"Learning From American Mistakes" by Not Guilty, is nothing more than pro-abort hacking of the pro-life movement in Canada.  Being an American, I don't follow Canadian politics, other than what I pick up on Twitter.  Needless to say, the pro-life movement in the good old USA, is leading the pro-life movement in the rest of the world, and that includes Canada.  That's what we do in America; we lead, the others follow.

On May 2nd, Canadians made a horrible decision. Well 39% of the 61.4% (5.8 million of 33 million people) of the population that voted did anyways. We gave Stephen Harper his long-coveted majority.

It's seems conservative Canadians are standing up for what they believe in, much like conservative Americans did back in November of 2010. 

Back to the issue of abortion -

The problem, as is most evident now than ever, is that if you give an anti an inch, they will take a mile.

And then she goes on to say -

Our government is bound and determined to not learn from America’s “war on drugs” and mega-prison mentality. Harper is hell-bent on remaking those mistakes. The pro-choicers in Canada must stand their ground. We must not accept one single concession. We must demand more. More access, more prevention, more freedom. We must not look to “agree to disagree” or appease the antis. We must look them in the eye and tell them they can take their “moral high-ground” and stick it. We are going to demand abortions access in the most remote areas; we must demand more support for those who choose abortion. Pro-choicers in Canada must fight fire with fire. We cannot give in because as soon as we do, as soon as we concede one point, we lose everything.

From the comments -

Serena writes:

if you give an anti an inch, they will take a mile.

I couldn’t agree with you more about not making concessions on abortion. If the pro-choice community accepts any restrictions on abortion (i.e. bans on “late term” abortion), we may as well give up the whole kit and kaboodle. Either you accept abortion, or you don’t. It doesn’t matter what stage of pregnancy the woman is in, imho. Abortion is a moral, responsible decision. Period.

If you give a pro-abort an inch, they will most assuredly take a mile.  Case in point, late term abortion.  Serena appears to be okay with it, and with no boundaries set.  When is late, too late?  Abortion is legal in most US states until 24 weeks gestation, for ANY reason.  Would Serena want abortion legal at 34 weeks?  39?  You get the picture.  Most of the pro-choicer's I talk to, are NOT ok with late term abortions, though I doubt they would agree to help ban them.  Just like most people that are pro-life personally, don't give abortion a second thought politically.  The issue of abortion is one most people would rather not even think about.

Americans turned their backs on the abortion issue after Roe, and because of that, over 53 MILLION abortions have been performed.  Over 53 million human lives were ended, before they could take their first breath.  Enough is enough!  It's time for Americans and Canadians to stand up against the abortion lobby.  We can't bring back the babies that were lost to abortion, but we can give babies of the future a fighting chance.

New Zealanders Fight for Parental Consent Law

Read the entire article:
One of the most evil manifestations of the abortion industry and the "health" system is their ability to have abortions performed on schoolgirls without the knowledge or consent of the child's parents.
It's truly sad that underage teens are able to make the decision to abort their unborn baby, yet the parents that are responsible for these teens, have no say in that decision.

Reading on -
And a thoroughly scientific study in 2006 by Dr Priscilla Coleman, a research psychologist at Bowling Green State University in Ohio, refuted a long-standing contention that teenagers are better able to handle an abortion than dealing with an unplanned pregnancy.
Teens know that a human being is killed by abortion.  They've not yet been desensitized to the reality of abortion.  They may be at some point in the near future though, by their future pro-abort college classmates.
 "The scientific evidence is now strong and compelling. Abortion poses more risks to women than giving birth." - Dr Priscilla Coleman

Pro-Abort Dreams of Being an Abortionist

I am sick. I just read an Abortion Gang post from “Prochoicegal”, who’s big dream is to be a baby killer.

Yes, that’s right, she wants to be the one that sucks out the fetus, tearing he or she limb for limb, all the while listening to the slurrrrpppp of the vacuum, while watching tiny arms and legs, maybe even a spine, go through the tubes, and empty out into a bowl, or jar, or whatever they catch ‘products of conception’ in. Magnificent career huh?

With so many strong opinions out there about what I should do with my life and with so much stigma surrounding my future profession, it’s sometimes difficult to get my voice out there and “come out” as a future abortion provider.

Stigma? ABORTION PROVIDERS KILL HUMAN FETUSES. Why should that be stigmatized? Geez. She needs to hang around some normal people, you know, the ones that don’t kill babies. But no.

Usually people just avoid me after I tell them (hey, I’m okay with that. Who wants to be friends with an anti, anyway?)

'Usually'?  I like that.  It's clear that the vast majority of US citizens are appalled by abortion, as they should be.

87% of U.S. counties don’t have an abortion provider, and this needs to change.

I agree that this stat needs to change. Shall we go for 97%?

Saying “I am an abortion provider” should be no more stigmatic than saying “I am a cardiac surgeon”, just like saying “I had an abortion” should be no more stigmatic than saying “I had heart surgery”.

Except that cardiac surgeons save lives, abortion providers end them.

Wait, what was the comparison I saw the other day?  Oh yeah.


So there you have it.  The dreams of a pro-abort.  Sick world.

Pro-Choice Orgs Want Women To Be Informed, Oh Wait, No They Don't

Robin Marty penned an article for RH Reality Check blasting an attempt by Online For Life to 're-direct' abortion minded women to a Crisis Pregnancy Center in their neighborhood.  According to Robin:
Anti-abortion activists keep passing abortion restrictions like "women's right to know" and mandatory ultrasounds under the guise that women need to have access to as much information as possible prior to an abortion.
Apparently Robin doesn't think women deserve to have 'as much information as possible', before terminating the life that is growing within them.  To Robin, it's much better to keep them blind to the humanity of the unborn.
So why is it that when a woman is using the internet to gather information on abortion providers, they are making it a goal to keep them from the very information they are seeking?
If a woman wants an abortion bad enough, she will find her way to an abortion mill.  Don't believe me?  Check out the stats on Online For Life's web-site.  It's clear we have a lot more work to do, changing minds and hearts.
Online For Life offers life affirming options, to help keep women from making a decision that they will possibly regret for the remainder of their lifetime, while at the same time, saving the life of their unborn child. 
Meanwhile... NaralProChoiceNY has put out an APB a video announcing a nationwide attack on CPC's, in an attempt to restrict women from learning the truth about abortion.
I sometimes wonder if pro-abortion organizations have ever considered gathering funds to HELP women?  Helping women get out of poverty would be cost prohibitive.  It's more 'cost-effective' for them to perform abortions.  And women and their babies lose.

Special thanks to my twitter friend @ for bring my attention to the Naral video. :-)

Does Pro-choice Sell Stupid by the Bucket?

Sometimes it's just entertaining to sit and watch the monitor on my computer.  No, it doesn't do tricks!  It's the level of stupid coming across the pro-choice twitter feed that's entertaining.  I was going to say something, but what can you say to such stupidity?  Nothing.
If life began at conception? Life DOES begin at conception, there are no ifs about it. Annie just solidified the FACT that every human conception is indeed a miracle, one that pro-choice takes for granted.
image image image
That anyone would take Annie's 'facts' as justification for the abortion of millions of babies is not surprising, yet it's very sad.  I wonder if they've ever sat and thought about what abortion really does.  Have they ever envisioned an 8wk fetus being ripped apart, limb by limb? Probably not.

I'll finish up with a couple of real doozies.  This one may explain why some pro-aborts think gender is 'assigned' at birth.
SERIOUSLY Annie, did you flunk biology in school?  Gender IS determined at conception
If eye doctors start digging in peoples eyes in order to intentionally blind them, I promise there will be protesters.  Lucky for you, they don't use curettes.

Legal Abortion Couldn't Save Her

I saw this this morning, and as a pro-lifer, I felt the need to respond.  What Ian wrote is emotional, and pretty much what we all do in times of tragedy, lash out and place blame.  This is in no way intended to increase Ian's pain over losing his friend.

On Friday 6th May 2011, @IanTheAtheist said:

A letter to the #ProCHOICE & #Antichoice
A woman just died who was close to me. She had an abortion without proper medical care. She hid it because of her family and the shame. Info is still coming out. It looks like she did it herself in the bathroom. Her name is Kim, age 31. Now her 3 daughters don't have a mother. Kim was a University of Santa Barbara California graduate. She would have been an awesome high school physics teacher. I am very sad. Just a side-note: Kim was on the Pill.

Her husband left her. Kim had a full-time job and a full college load. Due to medical problems from her last pregnancy and her financial situation, she wanted an abortion. She feared that if she had one, her mother would find out and stop baby sitting the kids while she worked. She couldn't afford more day care costs.

Her mother is a hardcore catholic bitch. (redundant, I know.) She throws Halloween parties in which she runs a fake abortion clinic in an attempt every year to scare teenage girls. They call the parties "Hell House" and girls/boys walk through a large gymnasium seeing fabricated sets with bloody "dead" baby dolls. They have robot dolls that scream and say "Don't kill me!" Kim grew up around this and knew that having an abortion would ruin what little family she had left. Her husband made the situation a million times worse by leaving. Why did he leave? Because Kim never gave him a son. "She kept spitting out girls." <----His response to my email today.

Kim was a hardworking woman put in a situation she couldn't resolve. Above is the short version of all of the events, because I can't write this without crying. Suffice to say that women deserve better. If you're a man and read this: think of your sister/mother/daughter/aunt/cousin. Imagine them being put in Kim's exact situation or worse. What could happen? Is it worth death? Your propagandist opinion isn't worth the death of anyone.

Kim's little girls are now stuck with Kim's mom. Now they have very little chance of growing up as well-adjusted adults. They will no doubt have issues. They will have massive depression.

Remember that religion caused this. Religion causes death. Kim would be alive and well if she could have seen a doctor without shame. She would have finished graduate school. Her girls would have a mommy. The world was a better place with Kim in it. Highschool students would have learned from her well honed understanding of physics.

F*** you if you can read this and think "Well why didn't she do this? Why didn't she do that? Well she could have done blah!" No she couldn't. She was left with no other opportunity. Trust women. They are the best of us.

You don't need to let your opinion of something tramp on everybody else's freedoms.

-emotional wreck-

Who is really to blame for this tragedy? Her husband? Her Mother? Religion? Abortion culture? Maybe society as a whole?  Did Kim really not have any other option? 

Of course she did!  She could have told her mother, who as a 'hardcore' Catholic, would have done what was necessary to help Kim through what was obviously a crisis pregnancy.  She could have talked to someone, perhaps her close friend Ian?  She could have talked to a counselor? She could have went to her neighborhood abortion clinic, where abortion is "Safe & Legal"?  Kim had a lot of options.  She 'chose' the option to end the pregnancy herself. 

I can only imagine what she was going though emotionally when she attempted to self abort.  This is where society failed Kim.  No woman should ever feel she has to make the choice to abort, whether legally or illegally, safe or unsafe.  Today's abortion culture leaves women feeling abortion is the best option.  When it's all said and done, if Kim would have had real support, from ANYONE, she just might still be alive today.

Yes, women DO deserve better, they deserve better than abortion.

As Mother's Day Approaches, Pro-Abort Shows Hatred for Mothers

I can honestly say I was shocked to read a recent post on the Abortion Gang blog, "Fetus Photos".  The sheer hatred and disrespect for Mother's and Mother's-to-be, is telling.  It makes me wonder what goes through the mind of the author Shayna and other pro-aborts, when they see a pregnant woman on the street.  My thoughts are that to them, every pregnant woman is a threat to the pro-choice feminist cause, and every fetus is an assailant.  All words below in bold are my emphasis.
Quoting Shayna -
When does it make sense to start snapping ultrasound pics of your uterus and sending out grainy black and white shots of what appears to be a slightly anemic sea monkey to your friends and family?
As soon as the Mother to be wants to?  Thankfully, most people will rejoice with the mother to be (exception being Shayna).  Her friends and family will share in her happiness and smile every time they see one of her ultrasound pictures (exception being Shayna).  They will lift anything heavier than a few pounds for her, so she doesn't overexert herself (exception being Shayna).  They will ask if she needs anything to make her more comfortable (exception being Shayna).  They will start planning her BABY shower (exception being Shayna).  They will LOVE her AND her baby (exception being Shayna).
And yet, she is barely at the point in her pregnancy where she can even begin to find out whether or not her pregnancy is truly one that will mature into a fully formed human being, independent and capable of surviving outside of her body.  What will she, or any one of the millions of other women who behave in the same way, announcing their children’s existence even before they attend their first prenatal doctor’s visit, if they find out that their pregnancy is not viable?  That their potential children would have no quality of life?  Can she still have an abortion if she has already so publicly and firmly turned her pregnancy, which is a medical condition that she herself has, into a separate human being in her own mind the mind of her friends and family members?
I'm taking it that Shayna would prefer every baby aborted "just in case" something goes wrong?  Only a pro-about would keep a calendar reminding her of the last possible day to abort "just in case" the baby's not perfect.
And yet, the baby-centric culture that we have created, wherein it is somehow bitter or radical for me, a single woman, to defend my right to my own body by belonging to the Abortion Gang, but normal for a pregnant woman to spam her entire e-mail address book with a flood of fetus photos.  Sure, her job as an ultrasound tech means that my cousin is able to scan herself more often than a hairdresser changes her hair color, but she is hardly alone in transforming from a multifaceted woman into an obsessed baby bakery.
It's called HAPPINESS Shayna! Something you clearly don't have any experience with. 
I’m not sure whether I find the barrage of baby news and photos so obnoxious because it began upon conception or because of its sheer volume.  It could be because, despite the fact that it is remarkably easy to conceive a child, her behavior indicates that it is somehow a daring or difficult choice. 
Actually, the chances of getting pregnant run between 11% and 25% each month, depending on the timing.  While some women get pregnant easily, others struggle for years, and some never get pregnant.  They never experience the joy of carrying their baby in their womb, feeling it kick, and giving birth.  They feel like they were cheated, and unworthy.  They go through years of depression because they feel that their destiny is unfulfilled.  So sad that Shayna has no empathy for these women.  But who says feminists should care for all women?  Not me.
Yet, I believe, that it is so much more challenging and admirable to make the decision to not have a baby.  To dare to put quality of life above “life,” to make the hard decisions that, unfortunately, no one will be sending you cute little pastel care packages for.  It is so much more difficult to decide to have an abortion, to decide that you cannot have a child now, because, unlike the decision to have a child, there is no one there to pat you on the back, let alone legions of family, friends and acquaintances.  As Mother’s Day approaches, though, if you are one of these courageous women, then please pat yourself on the back.  Whether you have children now or not, know that you decision mattered, and that you deserve to be praised every bit as much as and more than those who decided to carry pregnancies to term.
I'm picturing Shayna walking out of the abortion mill after having her baby forcefully removed from her womb.  All the other pro-aborts are high fiving her, and yes, patting her on the back.  You were so brave!  Another baby saved from a world that's just scary to live in.  Shayna goes back to her place, alone. 
At the same time, her cousin went to the hospital.  All of her family is there waiting outside the door to her room (exception being Shayna), and then they hear it.  The baby cries, it's such a joyful sound.  Everyone cheers.  Happy tears flow, and hugs all around.  A day or two later, the new mom is holding her baby as she is wheeled out of the hospital.  There are balloons and flowers.  She goes home and puts her newborn in it's bassinet for the first time.  And she sits for hours, just watching her baby sleep.  LIFE is beautiful.
It's sad the Shayna will never experience the joys of pregnancy and motherhood, or maybe it's not.
