Abortion Stories That Will Make Your Head Hurt
Abortion Stories That Will Make Your Head Hurt
Alabama governor, Kay Ivey signed into law the Alabama Human Life Protection Act today. All the while, Hollywood is protesting doing business in Georgia and actresses are calling their abortions the “best decision ever made“. The pro-abortion crowd is taking to Twitter to “shout” their abortions.
Many women choose to remain silent about their abortions. This is not because they feel shame or feel they will be regarded in a negative light. Most often, they feel the pain of the loss of a life. They feel guilt. They wrestle with their moral compass and question their decision that determined the fate of another human being. Not the #ShoutYourAbortion crowd. They’re telling stories. They’re flexing. They’re proud. They’ve done it once. And some will do it again. And again.
And again, so it seems…
I am 21 years old, graduating college in a year, and have been in a 3 year relationship with my boyfriend. We both have a bright future ahead in business careers and plenty left to do in our lives. I got pregnant.
I had my abortion yesterday at 6wks 3 days. Yes, it sucked. Anxiety, nerves, every emotion possible I experienced while being in that clinic for both appointments. I decided the surgical over medical. It hurt like hell for a matter of 10-15 minutes, and then it was over. I felt empowered, I had my body back, and I had the CHOICE on my future.”-Anonymous, 21, graduating in college in a year, and my abortion was not a big deal
A bright future ahead. So unfortunate that such a luminous future was darkened by a child. Moving along.
Mine is a Tindr story from Hell.
He was recently separated from his wife, though he didn’t tell me it was because he was a philandering POS. We had unprotected sex ONCE when I thought I was on the pill.
I was too afraid to tell him I was pregnant so I asked that he pay me back from money I lent him for surgery to have an ovarian cyst removed. He dragged his feet and eventually ghosted me; if I could post his name, I would.
The National Abortion Fund/Foundation provided $200, a Facebook friend donated $100, my mother reluctantly paid me $100 to trim the hedges because she couldn’t live with paying directly to have a potential grandchild flushed.”
She thought she was on the pill. A potential grandchild flushed?! What are we talking about? A goldfish? Whatever happened to the “thing” being a “clump of cells”?
I’m 37 and have been happily married to a wonderful man for 12 years. We live a good life; no significant difficulties, no traumas, no extremely sad stories. Everything ok. For the last 8 years we didn’t use any method for birth control other than me looking at a calendar and it worked, and I actually thought that one of us was sterile. And of course we talked many times about whether we did or didn’t want to have children, and the answer was always the same: no, we definitely don’t want babies.”
The calendar method? Seriously? Then, there’s always the opportunity to learn something new:
I don’t feel bad or sad about my bobos….”
In case you are wondering, a “bobo” is short for abortion. By “bobos”, it means, she’s had more than one. I perused some of the titles of the rest of the stories:
8 pregnancies. 3 children. 5 abortions. No regrets.
I Chose Life, My Own.
Gonna have my 3rd Abortion.
I Did it Twice and I will Never Regret It.”
I read more stories. Some women were abused or raped. These were not the stories that were of concern to me. I do not agree with abortion but I do sympathize with these women. The stories I found curious were much more common. These were the ones in which women are pouring out their hearts, all while talking about irresponsible birth control methods they somehow thought would work. These stories were coming from women who are 1) old enough to know better and/or 2) educated enough to know better. A common theme here is women who were driven by their studies and their careers. There’s an air of superiority in this crowd-a certain sense of “this is my life and I am not quite ready for this because I have big things ahead of me”. I would guess some of these women are quite smart and pride themselves on being part of the educated masses. But really, where in the hell is their common sense? If one birth control pill makes you sick, you try another method. If an IUD fails the first time, you try other options because maybe, the IUD is not for you. If you do not ever plan to have children, surgically, that can be taken care of on your side or on his side! And, really, who relies on the calendar or the pull-out methods anymore?! And, ladies-here’s a word of advice-if the guy is that much of a slacker-dirtbag-loser, what in the world are you doing sleeping with him in the first place? If he’s an irresistible slacker-dirtbag-loser you met on Tindr perhaps you should considering doubling, tripling or even quadrupling up on your birth control methods before considering a trip down to Planned Parenthood! Just saying.
Two, three, four, five (count ’em up) abortions. Forgive me but I really do not have much sympathy here. How is this okay? How is it that this can be a choice one is proud of? This is not “healthcare”. This is simply irresponsible behavior. Abortion is not an “empowered” decision if all other decisions leading up to this are stupid. Here’s an idea for all of the women who have paid Planned Parenthood multiple visits for their “bobos”: listen to that dim-witted Hollywood actress and please, for the love of God, GO on that sex strike!
