I Bought the Lie: Life After Abortion

What does abortion mean to women after they’d had a few years to re-live the experience?

What does abortion mean to them when they realize what they have done?

Does abortion free women, or imprison them in a new form of misogyny?

Women deserve better than abortion.

    I have never been involved with an abortion but I know there was a time I would have advocated one if I had. God be with all the women who have had an abortion and the men who have supported them in the process. Forgiveness is just a sincere turn of the heart away, no more than the time between heart beats.

      LOL, now why did I get down arrows for these two statements? Whoever gave me the down arrows, can you explain?

    I hope that those that have gone through this horror can use the tragedy to get closer to our Lord.

    Having known 4 women who chose to terminate their pregnancies, they have not regretted their decisions—-it was the right one for each at the time. The time frames involved here are from 1973 to 1993. Different reasons for all 4. I’m sure many women have regretted having an abortion, but I also believe there are those that never regret having to do what they did. No one should judge those that found it necessary for doing what they did—-none of those I know made the decision without deep thought. No one should be harsh or condemn a woman, who under circumstances no one but the woman experiencing them can totally understand, for doing what, in their opinion, has to be done.

      From what I can make out of a quick whack at Google Scholar, it seems most women have regret for facing the choice, but relatively few have regret for the decision they made when facing their particular choice.

        Makes sense.

    You’re right, women do deserve better than abortion. They deserve quality sex education, so they know how to protect themselves against unwanted pregnancies. They need access to quality birth control measures at affordable costs. And they need partners who are just as interested in protecting their rights to reproductive freedom as women should be. Providing access to birth control measures has a marked effect on abortion rates, causing significant decreases.

    Unfortunately, religious conservatives would rather punish women for being sexually active by making them choose.

      That’s all you can think of? Sex education classes that push young girls into sexual activity before they are ready and that encourage them to use chemical birth control which endangers their health? And oh yes, “men” who very graciously fight to allow this so that girls will continue to be sexually available to them, whether they enjoy the sex or not? (I’ve counseled girls at a crisis pregnancy center and most — almost all in fact — tell me they feel they must have sex when the boy wants it and that, no, slam-bam-thank-you-maam is not enjoyable to them.)

      That’s your idea of women’s rights?

      How modern of you.

      And how completely, absolutely, unremittingly sexist.
