A Voice of Reason from a Recovering Feminist
Rebecca
 
     

I am a 37-year-old recovering feminist/socialist, who has had two abortions; one in 1992 and another in 1997. As a journalism major/women's studies minor at a Big 12 liberal arts university, I used to celebrate my "choice" and its "liberating" effects on my life.

Since leaving the brainwashing zone that is a college campus, I have been happily married to a strong, independent-thinking man for nearly nine years, mothered three beautiful sons (a 21 month old and 5-month-old twins), and found salvation and strength in Jesus Christ. Needless to say, I am now ardently anti-abortion and regret every day the utterly selfish acts of my dark past.

My goal is to be a voice of reason to those girls and young women who get suckered into the pro-abortion movement during their formative years. I want to explain to them exactly what abortion does to a baby and the horrible ramifications is has on a mother. I want to help them understand that, just strictly scientifically speaking, the thing growing inside of them is a person from day one, and they have another self-less option (read: adoption) that will benefit both baby and mother in the long run. After all, my mother was adopted, so I wouldn't even be here if it weren't for her birth mother's fortitude.

Moreover, when I was 20 weeks pregnant with my "miracle babies," Gabriel and Zeke, I found out that I had Twin-Twin Transfusion Syndrome (TTTS). It took fetoscopic laser surgery at a children's hospital three states away; four months of bed rest; nearly daily appointments of ultrasounds, echocardiograms, non-stress tests and prenatal check-ups; the assistance of my many wonderful doctors and specialists; much support of family, friends and neighbors; and lots and lots of prayer to bring my boys safely into this world. The stats for babies surviving stage 3-plus TTTS are not great and many women who have TTTS use abortion as an out. Plus, some OBs push abortion, since TTTS is simply a high-risk pregnancy that involves much time, study and consideration.

I know in my heart that God tested me with TTTS because abortion is my cross to bear. Even though I constantly repent for these horrific past deeds, I know I must do anything and everything in my power to cease the senseless murder of the unborn. I owe it to my children, both living and dead.
