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.

You Will Never Be Forgotten

Love Jewelry

My little sister was never born, she was aborted shortly after Roe v Wade stripped millions of American children of their right to life in 1973. She was killed not only by our misguided mother, she was killed by a society that turned its back on its ‘unwanted’ members. Our mother is now pro-life and deeply regrets buying into the belief that humans are disposable. I will forever be my sister’s voice and fight tirelessly to defend other children from her fate.

You will never be forgotten my precious little one and when the atrocity of abortion is finally ended, you will be a big part of the reason why.

Conception Is Where Human Rights Begin

Getting Pregnant

Human rights begin when humans begin. No human life is more important than any other human life. Abortion rejects this idea.

Preventing Child Abuse

anonymous:

As a pregnant woman, you completely disgust me. I am financially and emotionally ready for my babies, whereas a lot of other girls are not. Who are YOU to say what a woman should and shouldn’t do? I have a stable life to raise my children, but some might not. How do you know that baby will not be abused, or neglected if it was kept? And adoption is a option, but unadopted children who were in the system are four times more likely to commit suicide. You shouldn’t comment on shit.

As a pregnant mother, you should understand why killing a prenatal child disgusts me. What I can’t understand is how it doesn’t disgust you. How can you tolerate the barbaric dismemberment of children like yours? Children who are utterly innocent and completely dependent on their human family to protect and nurture them.

You raised the issue of child abuse, claiming that because a prenatal child might experience abuse someday that we should instead abuse them to the point of killing them. Abortion either involves poisoning a child, sucking them through a high pressure tube, or manually ripping their arms and legs off before crushing their skull. Abortion is the ultimate child abuse.

Imagine if you were walking by your neighbor’s house and smelled the unmistakable scent of burning flesh. As you walk up to their home you notice through the window that a woman is pressing her toddler’s hand against a red hot stove.

Toddler Burn

Would you feel compelled to tell her what she should and shouldn’t do? In fact, the government would take that child away from her in order to protect that child. You see, it’s every adult’s responsibility to protect children. I work to protect them through every stage of life, not just the stages that occur after birth.

By the way, post-abortive women are six times more likely to commit suicide than women who give birth to their children. Maybe you are the one who shouldn’t comment on things you haven’t thought through.

Collapsing Culture

The scissors would be important to make an incision at the base of the skull, but I don’t use suction. I use my finger to disrupt the contents of the cranial cavity, to thereby collapse the skull and allow delivery of the fetus.

Embrace The Truth About Abortion

Speaking The Truth

The truth that abortion kills innocent living human beings angers those without a willingness to sacrifice for others.

The lie that abortion is healthcare kills those without the protection needed to avoid being sacrificed by others.

The truth will allow you to live and die on the right side of history. Don’t believe the lie.

Killing Art And Literature

anonymous:

i’m an ob/gyn and i professionally perform abortions quite frequently. every time i get my tools or prepare the syringe i whisper inaudibly “this is for you shifty”. all my abortions are 100% dedicated to you, like fine art or literature.

Have you ever thought about why killing comes so easy to you? Could you kill unwanted puppies as easily as you kill unwanted human beings?

Abortion 6 Weeks

While you relish in helping mothers slaughter their own family members, I fight to save them. While you have something to gain in the form of financial reward, I have nothing to gain. In fact, I have spent thousands of dollars and thousands of hours working to protect people who will never know I saved them. My reward is knowing that there is hope for humanity. Even if I were the only person left in this world who believed in true human equality, there would still be hope.

Someday, people like you will face severe legal consequences for hurting innocent prenatal children. I will continue to work tirelessly to make that day a reality and I’ll think of you while I’m doing it.
