A bulletin was posted by a friend of mine on MySpace and it pissed me off. You know why when you get to the all-caps at the end of the original bulletin.

What I read:

pregnancy: a result of having sex so before u take the chance of doing this, read this story and remember this should never be an option

Here is an actual account of a nurse who witnessed a partial birth abortion:

In September 1993, Brenda Pratt Shafer, a registered nurse with thirteen years of experience, was assigned by her nursing agency to an abortion clinic. Since Nurse Shafer considered herself "very pro-choice," she didn't think this assignment would be a problem. She was wrong. This is what Nurse Shafer saw:
"I stood at the doctor's side and watched him perform a partial-birth abortion on a woman who was six months pregnant. The baby's heartbeat was clearly visible on the ultrasound screen. The doctor delivered the baby's body and arms, everything but his little head. The baby's body was moving. His little fingers were clasping together. He was kicking his feet. The doctor took a pair of scissors and inserted them into the back of the baby's head, and the baby's arms jerked out in a flinch, a startle reaction, like a baby does when he thinks that he might fall. Then the doctor opened the scissors up. Then he stuck the high-powered suction tube into the hole and sucked the baby's brains out. Now the baby was completely limp. I never went back to the clinic. But I am still haunted by the face of that little boy. It was the most perfect, angelic face I have ever seen."

But what about if the baby had been aborted at a younger age.. say 6 weeks? When the baby is this young, doctors use the Saline Method, where they inject a salty saline solution into the mother's womb. You would think it would just poison the baby, but it actually burns it to death. Even though the baby is so young, on ultrasounds of the abortion, the fetus is seen pulling away from the poison as it is injected.. obviously wanting to stay alive.

Think about that before you say that unborn children can't feel pain.


Life is life, no matter how small.


What I responded:

Nobody is pro-abortion. No woman wakes up every day and wonders how many babies she can kill in her lifetime as a goal to achieve. That kind of decision is the hardest decision a woman will ever have to make and whatever she decides to do will effect her emotionally, mentally, and physically for the rest of her life. As for this story of partial-birth abortion, the author didn't note whether this was a case of high-risk pregnancy or not, which I find something odd to omit - high risk pregnancies are a danger to not only the baby, but the mother as well and the decision to have their pregnancy terminated is theirs alone and none of anyone else's business. It's a hard enough decision to make without having complete strangers judge you loudly for it without knowing the full circumstances of the mother's situation. I counted it as an option when I was pregnant and, even though I went with adoption instead, it was my decision to make - not yours, not anyone elses, but mine. Does that make me a bad person? The only ones abusing the abortion option are the teenage girls who fuck more than they study and/or will do anything to keep their little boyfriends. And that's all I have to say about that.
