I’ll never forget looking up and seeing that barrier made up of women with their signs: ‘ABORTION ON DEMAND AND WITHOUT APOLOGY.’ I’ll never forget the anger I felt – not at them, but at the lie. They believe it. They really do. They believe abortion is their liberation. They believe they can be released from oppression only by the deaths of their innocent children. They believe it so strongly they can’t even let themselves admit those children were once alive.
It’s crushing, it’s horrifying, and it’s gone on too long.
We aren’t fighting them. We’re fighting for them. We’re fighting the lie that has twisted their hearts, invaded their wombs, and killed their children: that abortion is liberation.
Abortion is not liberation. Abortion is misogyny in action.
