Why is it necessary to shame people who have already had abortions? I get talking to people who might have them in the future or who are currently pregnant. But talking down to someone who has already had an abortion isn’t going to bring their pregnancy back. It’s only going to hurt feelings.
In my mind, as well as many others, killing a prenatal child is no different than killing a toddler. Both are shameful acts. It is not my intention to directly shame anyone. I am simply responding to women who state that they had an abortion and feel they made the right choice. Clearly, they do this to destigmatize abortion and thus encourage others to make this barbaric choice for themselves.
If you have read my blog, you will notice that I have repeatedly offered forgiveness to these women when they awaken to the truth about what they have done. See my post ‘Love Them Both‘ for my views on the post-abortive mother.
What I can’t do is forgive a woman who has had an abortion and continues to champion for the choice of other women to kill their children. I will not, however, demonize them like abortion groups do to anyone who is pro-life. I just can’t forgive them until their heart shifts toward a respect for the dignity of all human life.
