Lifelong Effects of Abortion on Men – A Robbed Manhood…

sad-man

... Once I saw a bumper sticker, “Having an abortion doesn’t make you un-pregnant. It makes you the mother of a dead baby.” The same could be said for a father whose child has been aborted.Little attention is given to men when the topic of abortion is raised. Many believe since men don't have a uterus they don't have the right to an opinion on the matter. But a pregnancy doesn't involve just the pregnant woman. Many people are involved - a child yet born, future and/or existing siblings, gran … [Read more...]

Happy Mother’s Day, Emily Letts…

Emily-Letts

... That's it. Just Happy's Mother's Day.I know many people have lots of things to say about that video you made, the one where you filmed your abortion, but I'm not sure any of them thought to wish you a good Mother's Day. Maybe they don't think you deserve it or that you aren't a mother, but technically speaking you are."Mother” as a verb means to nurture, care for and protect. “Mother” as a noun means a female person who is pregnant with or gives birth to a child; or a female person w … [Read more...]
