The pro-choice crowd or as I refer to them the “poor-choice” crowd would like you to believe that a woman goes into an abortion clinic, the same way she goes into a nail salon with a smile on her face and a happy tune in her heart. Not only does she walk in that way, she walks out skipping and singing “Skip to My Lou“
However, that is almost never the case. We all know Lorena Bobbitt, men quake in fear at the name. The woman who cut off her man’s penis while he slept. How many know the story behind the story though? According to website Green Left: “For months we have been subjected to nauseating, titillating news coverage of the case. Lorena accused her husband of repeated rape and beatings and forcing her to have an abortion.”
http://www.greenleft.org.au/node/7369. Green Left is definitely a leftist site hence the name but even from this tidbit we do see that women are forced into abortions. But even if the Lorena Bobbitts of the world do exist and are forced into abortions that surely does not prove my point that all abortions are forced does it. It just means some are.
How can I possibly all abortions are forced abortions? I say it because no woman truly wants to abort her child, she feels forced into the decision. Whether it is due to circumstances, her significant other or already having prior children, there is a driving force behind her that leads her to believe she has no choice but to commit this horrific crime. There are the relatively few monsters out there that have abortions the way they have their teeth cleaned, with no remorse and relative ease. But they are not the majority, they are not even the minority, they are so few in number as to be an anomaly.
People think forced abortions only happen in places like China but since a child is dying we are not going to concern ourselves whether or not they actually wanted to abort their child. At least not here in America. So let’s look at a pro-choice site who has an article about this very controversial subject. Publiceye.org whose tagline is Defending Reproductive Justice had this to say:.
In a national study of women, 64% of those who aborted felt pressured to do so by others.1This pressure can become violent.2 65% suffered symptoms of trauma.1 In the year following an abortion, suicide rates are 6-7 times higher.3
Yet they seem to be the only pro-choice site talking about this phenomenon, since talking about it would cut into the abortion industry’s profits. Now you may be saying, 64% is still not all. It is close but there is still a third that obviously didn’t feel forced. Well, sometimes that force comes internally as well.
Reasons women give for having abortions:
- Forced by mother
- Father opposed
- Husband or boyfriend persuaded me
- No other option was given
- Would have been kicked out
- Loss of family’s support
- Lack of support from society
- Clinic persuaded me4
In 95% of all cases, the male partner plays a central role in the decision.5 Of men interviewed at abortion clinics 45% recalled urging abortion, including 37% of married men.6 Many of these men reported being justified in being the primary decision maker in the decision to have the abortion.6
Okay, now we are up to 95% when it comes to who ultimately made the decision, the man and not the woman. Not only were the men the primary decision maker, they felt justified in being so. At this point, five percent is such a small percentage it is pretty easy to say that all abortions are indeed forced abortions.
So what does this tell us? It tells us that we have been lied to. Women are not clamoring for abortion. Men are. That the line pro-choice people try to feed us about women wanting abortion is pretty much an outright lie. After all, who are the majority of abortionists? Men. Who gains the most from the woman aborting? Men. Who is making the most money off of abortion? Men. This was never about women and their rights. It has always about the sexual freedom of men. It has always been about the abandonment of women and the children made with them. It was about men in 1973 and it is about men now.
Betty Friedan did not mention abortion in the early version of The Feminine Mystique. It was Lawrence Lader, co-founder of NARAL, who convinced her that all feminist work-based demands depended on a woman’s ability to control her own body and fertility. Both Nathanson and Lader persuaded Friedan (and NOW) that abortion was a civil rights issue.
So if abortion was such a women’s right why didn’t Betty Friedan mention it in her earlier version of the Feminine Mystique, why did it take men to convince her that it was, if it as plain as the nose on your face? Because this was always about the male agenda, not the welfare of women. Just like Lader and Nathanson forced abortion, as a concept, onto Betty and Betty forced it onto the feminist movement. It has been forced onto women ever since. IN 1973, we gave women the finger and told them we could care less about them and their children. It is time we correct that error. It won’t bring the 61 million lives back but it might save 61 million more.
