A Sad Journey With Tracey Erbacher

Abortion Road Trip

Tracey Erbacher, artistic director of Abortion Road Trip, discusses the protesters who are pushing back on her effort to destigmatize the killing of prenatal children. Her play is a ‘comedy’ about a mother who takes a taxi across state lines to present her healthy living child to an abortionist who then proceeds to kill them.

When asked during an interview with DC Theatre Scene about the pro-life community protesting her work, she stated that she didn’t expect anyone to push back against her efforts because “…it is a beautiful script. I read it and fell in love.” Sadly, Ms. Erbacher seems incapable of extending that love to the thousands of ‘unwanted’ children scheduled to die today.

She goes on, “Somebody wrote an essay on a major Pro-Life site about the Washington Post review and the show, and that got picked up by a whole bunch of other Far Right blogs. And then, a piece came out specifically targeting me – which was extremely surreal.  It has my headshot with the word “INHUMAN” in giant red letters across it.  The first line is something like, ‘this is the face of Tracey Erbacher,’ and it’s this dramatic piece about how I personally don’t value human life even though I, too, passed through the fetal stage of human life.”

Tracey clearly lacks the gift of self awareness. She thinks it’s funny to tell stories about killing human beings at a stage of life and level of dependency she once experienced. She seems oblivious to the concept that her ability to push for the normalization of abortion was only made possible because she wasn’t aborted. How easily some forget where they came from.

Of course, absent of the threat of actually being aborted, people like Ms. Erbacher will declare they would have been perfectly fine with being killed in their mother’s womb if that was their mother’s choice. If you ask them if it would have been perfectly fine for their mother to kill them seconds after birth, even while still attached to their umbilical cord, they would react with feigned shock. After all, there’s no difference in the value of their lives just before that final push and just after.

Extolling the benefits of surrounding herself with people who think like her, she went on to say, “We had not even gotten home from opening night when we were inundated with responses from the community asking ‘how can we help?’  It has just been incredible.  We are really fortunate to be a part of such an amazing community.”

I suspect that others who have committed human atrocities throughout our often sad history must have needed the same reinforcement from those who supported their ideology and the resultant loss of human life.

Further making my point, Tracey continues, “The protesters may be helping us more than they are hurting us if I am being perfectly frank. [Washington, DC] happens to be a very liberal city, and people don’t appreciate being shouted at with offensive metaphors or extremely gory photo-shopped images of fetuses.”

Neonatal Intensive Care NICU

This is one of the images that Ms. Erbacher claims is “photo-shopped”. Clearly, she, like all those who support aborting their fellow human beings, is incapable of accepting what she advocates for. We live in a world where 120,000 people are aborted every day, yet she thinks there aren’t any actual images of the victims of this barbaric practice. That’s an interesting theory that doesn’t seem grounded in the reality of nearly ubiquitous access to camera enabled smartphones connected to the internet. To actually believe this, she must be willfully ignorant of the world around her.

Lamenting on the difficulty of killing a child in the womb, Ms. Erbacher stated, “I definitely didn’t plan this as an immersive theater experience, but this is a small sample [of] the aggression that abortion providers or people who are trying to seek reproductive care and abortions face outside of clinics … people who are coming in get at least a little taste of how hard it is for a person to go through this to get basic, guaranteed-by-the-supreme-court reproductive care.”

As Martin Luther King, Jr. once observed, slavery was legal and so was everything Hitler did in Germany. The law should never be used as a metric for morality. At the risk of stating the obvious, abortion isn’t healthcare. Healthcare preserves human life, abortion destroys it. These basic truths seem lost on Ms. Erbacher and those who support her determined effort to lighten the mood surrounding abortion.

Sidewalk Chalk

In an effort to counter the protesters, Theatre Prometheus spray painted an ironic message on the sidewalk. Human rights can never include the right to kill innocent humans.

Finally, in a seeming effort to drive home her disconnect with reality, Tracey describes her characters, “But these women are just being human, living their lives, and we get to see how complicated it is, and how, for some women, it actually isn’t this big, tragic, horrible thing to have an abortion.”

She is literally tone deaf to her own words. These women wouldn’t “just be human, living their lives”, if they had been one of the 25% denied their very right to live as “guaranteed-by-the-supreme-court”.

“Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.” — Martin Luther King, Jr.

Male Contraception Breakthrough

anonymous:

I would like to know if you have ever heard about Vasalgel and do you support it? I’m Pro-life and I 100% support it.

cultureshift:

Vasalgel is an amazing breakthrough and I also wholeheartedly support it and I’m also 100% pro-life. I support any contraception that doesn’t act as an abortifacient and male contraception certainly meets that criteria. For those wondering what Vasalgel is…

Vasalgel Male Contraception

Vasalgel is a long-acting, non-hormonal contraceptive with a significant advantage over vasectomy: it is likely to be more reversible. The procedure is similar to a no-scalpel vasectomy, except a gel is injected into the vas deferens (the tube the sperm swim through), rather than cutting the vas (as is done in vasectomy). If a man wishes to restore flow of sperm, whether after months or years, the polymer is flushed out of the vas with another injection.”

It Hurts To Have Your Legs Ripped Off

Fetal Pain

Can you think of any point in your life that you would like to have your arms and legs ripped from your body? Neither can I. So why do we do this to our prenatal children?

A Simple Story About Life

Pregnancy And Birth Before And After

A worried woman went to her gynecologist and said:

“Doctor, I have a serious problem and desperately need your help! My baby is not even one year old, and I’m pregnant again. I don’t want kids so close together.”

So the doctor said: “Okay, and what do you want me to do?”

She said: “I want you to end my pregnancy, and I’m counting on your help with this.”

The doctor thought for a little, and after some silence, he said to the lady: “I think I have a better solution for your problem. It’s less dangerous for you, too.”

She smiled, thinking that the doctor was going to accept her request.

Then he continued: “You see, in order for you not to have to take care of two babies at the same time, let’s kill the one in your arms. This way, you could rest some before the other one is born. If we’re going to kill one of them, it doesn’t matter which one it is. There would be no risk for your body if you chose the one in your arms.”

The lady was horrified and said: “No, doctor! How terrible! It’s a crime to kill a child!”

“I agree,” the doctor replied. “But you seemed to be okay with it, so I thought maybe that was the best solution.”

The doctor smiled, realizing that he had made his point.

He convinced the mom that there is no difference between killing a child that’s already been born and killing one that’s still in the womb. The crime is the same!

Speechless

Whatever else is said in abortion’s defense, the vision of that other defense [i.e., of the child defending its life] will not vanish from my eyes. And it has happened that you cannot reason with me now. For what can language do against the truth of what I saw?

The Real Reason For Late-Term Abortion

anonymous:

Do you not realize that people who are getting abortions at six months are not doing it for fun? That potentially the fetus is dying or dead and that is jeopardizing the mother’s health. Or maybe the fetus has no guarantee of life after birth because of some serious fatal defect. Are you serious that someone who gets an abortion for that reason is a murderer too?

cultureshift:

Sadly, the real reason mothers kill their children at six months and beyond is rooted in pure selfishness. The vast majority of late-term abortions are committed against children with Down syndrome, spina bifida, cleft palate, deformed limbs, and cystic fibrosis, all conditions that millions are currently living with. By the time the amniocentesis or ultrasound diagnosis is complete and the condition is confirmed, these children have reached their late second or third trimester of life. They are killed because they aren’t the model of perfection their parents are seeking.

Surrogate PregnancyWe have made human life a disposable commodity, just like everything else we touch. Parents don’t want the ‘burden’ of caring for a child with special needs, so they take advantage of legalized murder. If it’s illegal to kill a teenager with a disability, why should it be legal to kill a prenatal child with a disability? This has NOTHING to do with the selfish refrain of ‘my body my choice’, and everything to do with targeting the disabled for extermination. Abortion is the ultimate form of ableism.
