… Abortion hurts women. It crushes their spirit. Destroys their lives. Breaks their hearts. Leaves them emotionally raw and vulnerable. Makes them feel their self worth is diminished.
Abortion is not just a “medical procedure”, if it were there would be no need for post-abortive support groups like Rachel’s Vineyard and Silent No More. People aren’t typically suicidal or racked with life long guilt after a simply surgical procedure. If abortion is nothing more than the medical removal of a clump or cells or tissue than logically one would not expect such an emotional response when discussing the subject.
