Various people have asked me what I think about the young woman, Emily, who filmed her abortion.
Actually, Emily did not film her abortion. She filmed her smiles and sighs during a procedure which we take her at her word was an abortion. But to really film an abortion, you have to film the arms and legs of the baby being ripped apart and the head being crushed. That’s not so good for abortion clinic PR. (See www.priestsforlife.org/images/abortion-images-galleries.aspx).
Furthermore, as Pastoral Director of Rachel’s Vineyard and the Silent No More Awareness Campaign, the world’s largest ministries dealing with the aftermath of abortion, I have ministered to many women whose initial response to abortion was relief and who, when the relief wore off, entered the darkest phase of their lives. Their stories, at AbortionTestimony.com, are getting more and more attention. Perhaps that’s why abortion salespersons feel the need to get a ‘positive abortion story’ out there. We have nothing but compassion for Emily. When she hits bottom, our door will be open for her, too.
