The Anguish of Abortion

In spite of pro-abortion attempts to paint abortion as painless, the agony is very real – from Life News:

A new study published in the British Journal of Psychiatry by leading American researcher Dr. Priscilla Coleman of Bowling Green State University finds women who have an abortion face almost double the risk of mental health problems as women who have their baby.

Coleman’s study is based on an analysis of 22 separate studies which, in total, examine the pregnancy experiences of 877,000 women, with 163,831 women having an abortion. The study also indicated abortion accounts for one in ten of every adverse mental health issue women face as a whole.

“Results indicate quite consistently that abortion is associated with moderate to highly increased risks of psychological problems subsequent to the procedure,” the study says. “Overall, the results revealed that women who had undergone an abortion experienced an 81 percent increased risk of mental health problems, and nearly 10 percent of the incidence of mental health problems were shown to be directly attributable to abortion.”…

It is quite simply unnatural for a woman to abort her child – it is, indeed, a negation of all that “woman” means.  Call it biology or the will of God, the plain fact of the matter is that women are to create and nurture life…a woman can choose not to do this, but to take “choice” to mean the deliberate killing of a life already started is a horrific violation of the feminine spirit.  Given this, it is a certainty that there will be mental and spiritual pain associated with abortion.

My final awakening to the full effect of abortion was when, a few years back, I was privileged to meet some women from Silent No More – a campaign by women who have had abortions and now wish to warn other women of the terrible consequences.  While I have been, for most of my adult life, pro-life,  I still felt that as a man I was some how out of place in being a forthright and public opponent of abortion.  The ladies of Silent No More set me straight…bringing me to understand that my duty, as a man, is to defend women…including defending them against abortion, to the fullest extent of my ability.  The pain these women shared with me made it impossible for me do to other than continually speak out against this anti-woman, anti-human, barbaric practice…and to seek its abolition.

Let know one try to convince you otherwise – an abortion is the worst thing a woman can do to herself short of suicide.  However bad the circumstances of the pregnancy, to kill the unborn child will just make it worse, not better.  Life is always the proper choice.

    When you are willing to give up wealth by taking a woman considering abortion away from this choice by financing her pregnancy paying all of her medical bills and adopting the child then We will listen to your view.

    • Green Mountain Boy(You have an ugly goat) September 4, 2011 / 1:31 pm

      Having an abortion does not make a woman unpreganant. It makes them the mother of a dead baby. If you can not afford a baby maybe you should not be having sex. Oh wait. that would be denying them pleasure. Can’t have that no can we.

        and a court of law says that this little human being does not deserve the right to life…

        this has to end…no woman has the right to murder her own child…

      • Majordomo Pain September 5, 2011 / 10:45 pm

        js you need to go back and read the Constitution.

      • tiredoflibbs September 6, 2011 / 12:59 pm

        Again, bubblehead, where in the Constitution does it say a woman has a right to an abortion? Specific clause and phrase, please.

        You have been asked this (and other drones as well) and yet have not been able to respond.

    • Dvindice September 4, 2011 / 2:19 pm

      Given the different contraceptives on the market today if a woman does not want to be preggers, she needs (as well as he) to show some personal responsibility to take the actions needed to prevent becoming preggers in the fist place.

      Then again, far be it in the liberal mindset that people show personal responsibility in their own actions, after all, big daddy gov should be there to take care of us all.

      • Bodie September 5, 2011 / 1:02 pm

        “Given the different contraceptives on the market today if a woman does not want to be preggers, she needs (as well as he) to show some personal responsibility”

        And if the pharmacist won’t sell them contraceptives because it offends his oh-so-delicate moral sensibility?

      • tiredoflibbs September 5, 2011 / 9:00 pm

        wow, jeffy flails again: “And if the pharmacist won’t sell them contraceptives because it offends his oh-so-delicate moral sensibility?”

        So, she only has ACCESS to a single pharmacist? Plus, there are a number of free clinics and such to provide the much needed contraceptives. As you so erroneously point out, personal responsibility also plays into the big picture. But for a tunnel-visioned drone, you can’t see the nose on your face.

        You have been proven wrong on this topic once before. Why humiliate yourself again?

      • Bodie September 6, 2011 / 1:00 am

        So by proving you wrong, I proved myself wrong? By correcting you on the facts, I proved myself wrong? Is this part of your inability to understand the definition of the word “prove,” tired, or is this purely your inability to understand basic logic?

      • tiredoflibbs September 6, 2011 / 12:53 pm

        jeffy, you did not prove me wrong.

        that was you first incorrect ASSumption. i am not going to rehash this again.

        No matter how many times you repeat itm, it will not become the truth.

        You lost again. thanks for playing.

      • Bodie September 6, 2011 / 1:20 pm

        “jeffy, you did not prove me wrong”

        Sure I did. You just seem to think that in doing so, I proved myself wrong. I’m wondering if this is a failure of logic, reading comprehension, or both on your part. After all, you’ve repeatedly demonstrated severe disabilities with both logic and reading comprehension. But I already slapped you silly on this topic once; I’d get that “beating up on the handicapped” guilt if I did it again, so you may as well just seize the opportunity to walk away.

      • tiredoflibbs September 6, 2011 / 8:01 pm

        “Sure I did.”

        No, jeffy, you are ignoring your own argument of “just because you say it does not make it the truth.”

        Of course, we all know that liberals believe everything they say is true simply because they say it. You would be more believable if you posted evidence, instead of opinion pieces or blog entries, of your pathetic ASSertions.

        “You just seem to think that in doing so, I proved myself wrong.”

        I see you are still posting your delusions. If you were such a mind reader I would think you would be in Vegas putting your “talent” to work – maybe as a stand-up comedian.

        You lost jeffy. Thanks for playing.

      • Bodie September 7, 2011 / 11:11 am

        Do you have short-term memory loss on top of your intellectual and reading comprehension deficiencies, tired?

        Geez, no wonder beating up on you gives me that “don’t pick on the handicapped” guilt.

    • Amazona September 4, 2011 / 2:22 pm

      Here’s a radical idea: Women acting like WOMEN—that is, like mature adults who take responsibility for their own actions—-instead of like hedonistic pleasure-seekers without the integrity or decency to accept personal responsibility.

      That alone would dramatically decrease the number of unwanted pregnancies.

      Do not try to claim that the issue is one of other people being unwilling to, as you so snidely put it, “give up wealth”. Bull. The issue is societal and cultural and, yes, moral. The issue is removing sex from any area other than recreation and then being unwilling to take responsibility for the outcome. The issue is a complete distortion of values, putting self-indulgence ahead of everything else, including human life. The issue is the degradation of women into sex objects and their willingness to add to that degradation by willingly butchering their own children to avoid the temporary inconvenience of actually being expected to carry to term the lives they have created while having a good time.

      As for the rest of your ignorant little screed, all you have to do is look at the number of desperate couples begging for the chance to do exactly what you are screeching about—for the opportunity to pay all bills of a pregnant woman and adopt the child.

      Sure, sex is fun, it feels good, it’s actually pretty great. But it is not the end-all and be-all of human existence and certainly not more important than the life of a completely innocent human being whose only involvement is completely involuntary, the simple bad luck of originating from the egg of a viciously selfish and unprincipled female.

      • RetiredSpook September 4, 2011 / 6:55 pm

        Hey, Amazona, welcome back. I trust you got all your real estate legal stuff worked out.

        WRT abortion, I’m stuck in an awkward place. Half my and my wife’s family are pro-life and almost half are pro-choice; my sister being the black sheep who is emphatically pro-abortion. Not sure why; she won’t tell me. Bottom line, though, is that it’s not a hot button issue for me. I think it’s an abhorrent, barbaric procedure, but, to the best of my knowledge, no one from my family has ever had an abortion, although I wonder about my sister.

        I live in a rural, conservative area, so my opinion is, I’m sure, biased; but it seems to me that attitudes toward the acceptability of abortion are gradually changing. I suspect sonagrams have something to do with that. Eventually, even without legislation or a court decision overturning Roe v. Wade, I think abortions will become less and less commonplace.

      • Amazona September 4, 2011 / 7:30 pm

        Thanks, spook. I really needed a break from the toxicity of such as thomas/sasan,whose bleating went from annoying to pathetic to simply proof of insanity and was very depressing. So I decided to take off till Labor Day.

        I was involved in a moderately complex land use issue and I saved tens of thousands of dollars by doing all the research and then collating it with the lawyer’s legal research. It was really kind of fun, taking me back to school days, and it was tremendously productive. My contributions were so extensive and thorough that the opponent’s lawyer, after a day and a half of depositions, came to us and said “we need to make this go away”. By that time we had not only completely destroyed their case but gotten them on issues such as forgeries, fraud, and repeated lies under oath. We are still hammering out a settlement and I found it all quite gratifying.

        I also worked on the final design features of a house I have been rebuilding for what seems like forever. I’m still on mandatory post-surgical don’t-lift-a-finger time, which was driving me crazy, so I took advantage of it to spend the necessary time picking out tile and paint and so on. My neighbor at that house hobbled over on crutches, recovering from an auto accident and also going stir crazy, so we started having lunch a couple of times a week and I told her about the blog. She started to post and would come to me with a quote or a post and ask me what I thought about the poster. Our takes on baldorf in particular were almost identical, but then we both thought he sounds just like our most annoying neighbor down the street.

        This is not all irrelevant. I was not posting, but I was still involved in discussing topics and issues, and one of them was what you just mentioned, the growing awareness of the atrocity and brutality of abortion. My lawyer had two young law students working with us and I expected them to be more Liberal, and they both were quite adamant that no one who had ever seen a sonogram or read how the tiniest fetuses react to pain could possibly dismiss them as less than human or mere clumps of tissue. Then in Denver Luckee, as you know her, said her two young daughters and their friends find abortion appalling and disgusting and have contempt for those who have them.

        When the young are moving to the Right, I find it very hopeful.

        Well, you picked a good time to return. Sasan doesn’t generally work on weekends, heh.

      • Majordomo Pain September 5, 2011 / 8:18 pm

        Amazona it would be far easier for your side to sacrifice for LIFE than it would be to pass laws that would make your morals paramount. Why not just make the sacrifice of taking in a crisi pregnancy?

      • tiredoflibbs September 5, 2011 / 9:06 pm

        the bubble-headed computer crashes: “to pass laws that would make your morals paramount”

        Since when is MURDER of the innocent “our morals”???

        You want our side to “sacrifice for life” while you would maintain your sides “choice for death”. I believe there would be thousands if not millions who would “sacrifice for life”. Of course, your idea of “sacrifice” would be to foot the ENTIRE BILL for the irresponsible’s party pregnancy rather than just a portion and the legal fees for the adoption, since it would be so much easier to “get rid of the inconvenience” as you want to preserve.


      • Majordomo Pain September 5, 2011 / 10:34 pm

        Tiredoflibbs you must feel then that your material possessions are more important than your moral values then. This makes your stance for LIFE a bit hypocritical unless you are willing to give all to save LIFE.

      • tiredoflibbs September 6, 2011 / 12:56 pm

        Bubblehead, I don’t have to give ALL to save a life. All that has to be done, is make ALL murder illegal.

        I give to another “collective” that helps these poor unfortunates in their irresponsible situation.

        Again, MURDER is not just “our morals”. You just want to maintain the status quo – get rid of an inconvenience and be free of all responsibility in your life.

        the typical liberal way of life.

    • js September 4, 2011 / 2:47 pm

      you are a selfish, ignorant dweeb painstooge…inoramaus is your constitution…

      the natural cycle of life…you must hate it so much that…you have villfy people…who adhere to it…

      do you get them tingly feelings…running up your leg…when you know that an innocent life is taken…

      do you shout for joy…when the reproductive act rewards a woman with a child…and then she rips it out of her womb…and slaughters it…

      it really doesnt matter…you are ignorant…and that wont change

    • Dave September 4, 2011 / 4:07 pm

      That happens all the time. There are hundreds of agencies, crisis pregnancy centers, churches, etc. that do exactly what you say. I can speak from experience…I adopted two children from just such an agency. So you agruement is baseless and another attempt to make he destruction of human life ok. And it does not excuse the fact that people must take responsibility. It is a human being not some blob of tissue. The time to be pro-choice is to choose to have sex or not…after that choice is made…responisbility should follow.

      • Majordomo Pain September 5, 2011 / 1:14 pm

        We disagree. As a supporter of a woman’s right to reproductive self determination We, Ourselves, recognize that the common man and woman on the Right in this issue, if they mean what they profess, must be willing to make every sacrifice to assure that no abortions take place. We respect your adoption and applaud you but what of those who prefer to argue this issue from your side while rejecting any loss of their own material comfort?

      • js September 5, 2011 / 9:58 pm

        supporter of what? get real painstooge…

        you support the womans right to slaughter her own child…you dont support anything else…reproductive self determination…you spin words to hide the truth…but it doesnt work…women have sex…the get pregnant…and have babies…self determination ends after they are pregnant…that part all you stoogebait libtards dont defend…the responsible behavior…that you omit…and the life that is created that you ignore…

        this nation was founded on natural rights that we recognize as unalienable…the right to life…and as far as anybody can show…that human child in the womans womb is alive…and no court in the world has any right to remove that life from existence…

        you can play the halfwit…like you have for most of your life…it doesnt change the truth…not that you would know…or understand…

    • Mark Edward Noonan September 4, 2011 / 10:12 pm


      Pro-life individuals and groups give vast sums of money and personal time to help women who are pregnant…and any woman who is considering an abortion can present herself at any Catholic or Evangelical church in her area and obtain all the aid she needs.

      • Majordomo Pain September 5, 2011 / 12:55 pm

        We do not mean charities Mark We mean you personally. If this issue is so close to heart you should “give until it hurts” to a woman who may for a wide variety of reasons be considering abortion. Imagine what sort of positive publicity for Conservatives this sort of “walking the walk ” without corporate or Church contributions this sacrifice would generate?

      • neocon1 September 5, 2011 / 1:47 pm


        we do, it is taxes, redistributed to welfare queens with 8 kids from 8 different dogs, illegal aliens, looters and you all good little useful idiots donks lovin the plantation.

      • Majordomo Pain September 5, 2011 / 8:14 pm

        Neocon as an individual your taxes are scattered across many items. We ask that if this initiative is of such grave and dire circumstance then a sacrifice needs to be made by you and you family to promote your values. If it is not worth all you have to save a life then what you have is more valuable than what you state you feel.

      • js September 5, 2011 / 10:03 pm

        “we”…what exactly is…”we”…you and the turn in your pocket painstooge…you and the ignorance in you hand….or…is it…just ignorance…and a way to say something so that it “sounds” like…you are someone who you are not…

        “how” pro-lifers do it is beyond your comprehension…your attempt to isolate individuals and ridicule them because they dont play stupid like you….really exposed you as the mental midget in this debate…

        why did you come back…you swore you would never return…so that makes you a liar….and a half witted stooge….and really slow mentally.. go back and rot in your hole…where you belong stooge

      • js September 5, 2011 / 10:07 pm

        did you ever get a clue that personnal responsiblity would eliminate abortions…ya…stop screwing around…you would notice 2 things in society right off the bat…less STD’s and NO ABORTIONS…

        a result of moral behavior…screw hollywood…screw the DNC…just do the right thing and it would fix all of our problems…

        then painstooge would be hurting bad…that turd in his pocket stinks because he doesnt know any better…and if we just ignore him…he will take it somewhere else…

    I am at my wits end with the prejudice that is still being poured on young women like me who choose abortion.

    Originally when I started my campaign it was really to confront those who had scared, insulted and distressed me as I attempted to document my feelings and understand the process in my blog. I am stronger now. There is no pro life insult or photograph, campaign poster etc that much effects me anymore.

    But I had to go through it all the hard way. I find this totally unacceptable. No young women in the 21st century living in the Western world should have to be labelled a murderer for deleting a mistake that would have ruined their young, bright life.

    The abuse directed at women by these judgemental fools is astonishing.The majority come from a middle class, two point four comfortable background. I am so angry that they direct their screams of hatred to vulnerable women at their most rawest of times and say that they do it in the name of God- or as the defender of the innocent.

    They are the first to say they live in fear of God and only wish to bring his teachings into the world. I am a Catholic myself. I do not fear Holy punishment for what I did. I do not fear His judgement. In fact, I find that there is so much in the Bible that can other comfort and allows for healing.

    Luke 6:37

    Judge not, and you will not be judged; condemn not, and you will not be condemned; forgive, and you will be forgiven.

    I read a comment in a pro life blog that really struck a cord with me.

    When you are willing to give up wealth by taking a woman considering abortion away from this choice by financing her pregnancy paying all of her medical bills and adopting the child then We will listen to your view.

    I think this is wonderful. But it still attempts to justify a woman’s choice. I would not have chosen adoption- I wanted no association with the child whatsoever. That is what I fear. There is no voice given to those who just didn’t want the baby.

    Everyone assumes it was a medical, trauma or financial reason. These were not my reasons. My now-ex-boyfriend and I were close, we were soul mates. My family supportive. They would have provided for me and most likely encouraged my return to university after the birth. The baby was due in late Summer. All would have been possible- and had I not been adamant that I still wanted my life style as I knew it- then all would have been probable.

    I did not want to be a mum- and that is what the pro lifers need to understand. There is no cruelty, there is no evil- there is just choice.
