Are women ignorant?
Judging by the narrative promulgated by most pro-life organizations, you would think that the vast majority of women who get abortions:
- Have no idea what they are doing
- Have been duped by Planned Parenthood into believing their baby is just a clump of cells
- Are ignorant of what an abortion procedure does
- Would change their minds if they were just informed about pre-natal development or saw an ultrasound image
Does this narrative hold up?
As we usually do, we will go straight to the comments of pre- and post-abortive women posting online about their abortion experiences. Do these women know it’s a baby? YES. They absolutely do.
In their own words…
Knowledge isn’t the problem
These women, and many more like them (we could post hundreds of these comments), aren’t making their decisions based on lies told to them about their baby’s development. They aren’t confused about whether they are pregnant with babies. They are aborting BECAUSE they are pregnant with babies. This isn’t a knowledge problem. This is a sin problem. They have murderous desires in their hearts toward their children. Murderous desires which our laws allow them to act upon with impunity.
This is why we need to establish justice for pre-born children by instituting laws which will restrain mothers (and fathers) in their sin against their children.
