Talking about abortion. When Choice Is No Choice

Yes, that is what I said. When choice is not choice. A women's choice has been the rallying cry for the pro-abortion people for years.

Something that always seem to avoid consideration is how many abortions are performed every year against the will of a juvenile.

I personally know of two women who live with the daily and life long guilt of having had abortions when the were teens. In both cases they were forced to have them by selfish guardians.

My dear friend Amy was forced to have an abortion when she was 16 by her aunt. Her mother was terminally ill with Lupus. Her aunt had legal guardianship. Amy fault tooth and nail to have her child. She even considered running away. But that would have left her in the position of not being with her mother on her last days. She gave in to her aunt's demands and in her own words, "murdered her own child."

Amy has two children now. But on every birthday, on every holiday her eyes fill with tears mourning her child that was denied the opportunities that her two un-aborted children have. She is filled with guilt and regret and many what ifs.

On the day of her mothers funeral she spit in her aunts face and hasn't spoken a word to her since.

The other women I know of was in foster care and was forced to abort by the foster father, who's 28 year old brother was the father. She was 15. As many would think this women would have scars from being molested by a much older man. But in reality her scars are from the guilt and pain of denying her child life. I'm not so sure but she insists she was a willing participant and actually loved that man. And more than anything she wanted to love that baby. But as we can see, there are many times when a women's choice is really no choice at all. It is simply a easy out for selfish parents
who disregard the reality that their children will have to live with the fallout of forced abortion for the rest of their lives.

This may sound funny coming from women, but abortion is not an acceptable form of birth control for us. A pregnancy should only be terminated if the woman's life is in danger, and that is where the CHOICE should come in.

That should go without saying. But unfortunately there are extremist from every corner. And as I often say extremism if more dangerous to America than terrorism.
