Some women do regret it
If you are post-abortive and have been brought to humble repentance of your past sin, it is likely that you may have joined together in a Facebook group with others who also regret having once aborted.
Post-abortive Facebook groups, however, are not accurately reflective of the status of ALL or even MOST post-abortive women.
They are simply reflective of those who have grouped together under the banner – the common interest – of “I Regret My Abortion.” This is similar to how athletes at school may group together in friendship because of their mutual interest in sports.
We often congregate with those who are like-minded with us in some way.
Likewise, if you minister at a Pregnancy Center that provides post-abortive counseling, it is important to remember that you are ministering to those who – by default of them coming to you for such counsel – are regretful of their past abortions.
But Facebook “abortion regret” groups or counseling programs are not reflective of the GENERAL emotional status of all post-abortive mothers.
Some women don’t regret it
The objective truth is that around half of post-abortive mothers do not regret in any way having terminated child #1, so much so… that they go on to do it again to child #2.
That statistic proves that at least half of post-abortive mothers do not regret their first abortion in any sort of meaningful way. Of course, many post-abortive mothers may not choose a second abortion or may not ever even become pregnant a second time, but still do not regret terminating their first child.
This haughty “I don’t regret it” spirit is reflective in the #ShoutYourAbortion movement and is the majority opinion of post-abortive mothers, whether they “shout” it or not.
Because even Christians are often comfortable with regulating the child-killing industry instead of abolishing it all together, the law has taught mothers that it’s morally okay – even good at times – to poison, dismember, or attack a child to death by vacuum.
As a result, today’s women have, by and large, lost any appropriate shame when doing shameful things.
