In the news today is a story by Jill Stanek about a nurse who works at an abortion killing center and the affects it had on her daughter. It recounts the horrific things the daughter went through as she grew up with a “feminist” mother. Abigail Seidman recounts the “celebration” her mother gave her when she had her abortion and referring to the abortion she said, “When it was over, Abigail’s mother looked at her with tears in her eyes and told her how proud she was. Despite Abigail’s previous academic and artistic accomplishment, she realized “this was the only time in my life that my mother had ever said she was proud of me.” And responding to the interviewer’s question regarding the abortion worship she had heard so much about, Abigail said, “It is very real,” she explained. “It can sound fantastical, but some go so far as to worship death goddesses like Kali and Hecate and consider abortion to be a form of sacrifice. They are often obsessed with their menstruation and blood as well.” Sound familiar. (See blog of Sept. 28, 2010 below)
Here is an excerpt from Abigail’s testimony”
“It is important to recognize and effectively counter the culture of death that drives the abortion industry. Most people who are pro-choice have no idea about it. If they have given the issue any thought at all, they view it as either a religious one – “Christians hate women and sex” – or a civil-rights one – “Women have the right to make their own reproductive decisions.” Many are unaware of the scientific facts about fetal development. Many are unaware of the statistics and medical facts regarding miscarriages, infertility, infection, ectopic pregnancy, difficult births, cancers and mental-health issues that so often occur in post-abortive women. Many are unaware of the non-religious arguments against abortion.”
Just earlier this week we told you about Rebecca Walker, another mother who also had grown up with a “feminist” mother. Both tell of their ordeal and how they had been raised to hate men, and view abortion as the solution to many problems. But nothing is further from the truth.
The last time we blogged about Rebecca Walker, someone commented that not all feminist are like the ones in these stories. We agree and think it’s important to point out that there are groups out there doing good work like Feminists for Life and Susan B. Anthony List. I think that the difference is in the feminist’s moral values as both Abigail and Rebecca had to find out the hard way.
If you find yourself pregnant and alone and you don’t know how you can raise a child, there are other available options that abortion. There are also many organizations that are ready, willing, and able to help you find out the best solution for you. All you need to do is take the first step and call. Here is a link to abortion alternatives.
If you or anyone you know has been affected, coerced or traumatized by anti-life/pro-abortion feminist tactics, there is a support network. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
God bless you.
