april, non serviam
My birth mom got pregnant with me after Roe. She was 15 and I doubt I was planned. She gave me up for adoption, and I’m pretty glad she did. But this isn’t the reason I’m pro-life. In 2000, my daughter was born with a slew of serious heart defects. She lived almost 3 years,

passing after her 3rd open heart surgery in June 2003. Every time I hear someone say that it’s better to abort a baby with birth defects, I think about my daughter and how profoundly she changed my life in less than 3 years. These excuses people make to numb themselves to the

reality of abortion are legion, but they aren’t convincing. Yes, sometimes life hurts us in deep, irreversible ways. We can’t control it. We also can’t avoid it. Had I known I’d have such a short time with my daughter and how her death would destroy so much of who I am and what

I thought I’d believed in, I still wouldn’t have had an abortion to “save myself from the trauma.” I knew her. I loved her. She loved ME. I’m a better person for having experienced that love. I see her smile in her sister’s. And I’ll see her again. That’s why I’m pro-life.

What a powerful story. For me, life (not convenience) is more valuable than anything else. I don't believe most people who choose an abortion think of it that way, but most of the time, they are simply saying another person's life isn't worth the inconvenience to theirs. 💔

I like the stance that Camille Paglia takes on the issue. She’s pro-choice, but she’s also pro-truth, believing abortion advocates should dispense with the euphemism and obfuscation and just own what they believe.

I don't want to judge, but knowingly giving birth to a child with a fatal defect is a problem. The whole point of going through screening tests, is to avoid terminal diseases and life of pain and misery. I'm pro-life, but I support aborting pregnancies with severe health issues.

That’s an awful and insensitive thing to say. Is it really that hard to just scroll on by if you have such thoughts?

I was “pro-choice“, until I was saved in 2000. It was easy for me to make 180° turn since I knew, because my mother told me, if abortion had been legal and safe when she was pregnant with me, I wouldn’t be here.

Oh God. How awful. What mother tells that to their child?

Beautiful. I lost a son at 8 months and just like you if I would have known what would've been ripped away in such a short time I'd still want it all. Thanks for sharing your story.
