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.

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.

Pregnancy And Disability

lindywhiskers:

First of all wanted to say thank you for changing my mind on abortion. I can’t believe I separated “fetus” from “human” for so long.

I wanted to ask you if you have any resources/advice for getting through pregnancy despite disability? I don’t want to take medication that’s not safe for baby but I also don’t want to get sick. I have bipolar disorder and fibromyalgia and almost none of the medications are safe, and the ones that are don’t always work. I’d rather go off my meds completely and risk myself than risk hurting my child, but if I’m sick it’s bad for both of us.

First, I want to thank you for waking up to the reality that you are carrying your actual child, not some ‘blob of cells’. Incredibly, even in the age of information, it’s difficult to get people to realize this simple truth. And your child is now better off for it.

From the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists guidelines on psychiatric medication use during pregnancy and lactation…

An estimated 500,000 pregnancies in the United States each year involve women who have or who will develop psychiatric illness during the pregnancy. The use of psychotropic medications in these women is a concern because of the risks of adverse perinatal and postnatal outcomes. However, advising these women to discontinue medication presents new risks associated with untreated or inadequately treated mental illness, such as poor adherence to prenatal care, inadequate nutrition, and increased alcohol and tobacco use.

Ideally, decisions about psychiatric medication use during and after pregnancy should be made before conception. The use of a single medication at a higher dosage is preferred over multiple medications, and those with fewer metabolites, higher protein binding, and fewer interactions with other medications are also preferred. All psychotropic medications cross the placenta, are present in amniotic fluid, and can enter breast milk.

Extract from Harvard Vanguard Medical Associates

While the decision around treatment often centers on the risks to the fetus of exposure to a medication, there are additional risks to both mother and child if mental illness is left untreated.  The time during and after pregnancy is a high-risk period for recurring symptoms in women who have had previous experience with psychiatric disorders.

Women must also consider that untreated mental illness, either during pregnancy or the post-partum period, also poses risks to the child.  These risks may include slower fetal body and head growth, pre-term delivery, and increased risk for operative delivery. Pregnant women with untreated depression or anxiety are less likely to have adequate prenatal care and nutrition and are more likely to abuse substances.  For these reasons, even from the point of view of protecting the child, it may not always be the best choice to discontinue psychiatric medications or to withhold treatment during pregnancy.

There are treatment options during pregnancy that go beyond medications.  Psychotherapy, usually in weekly sessions, has been shown to be effective for some conditions.  Increased support from partners, family members, friends, and medical care providers can be important as well.  Pregnancy is also a time to focus on overall health, including exercise, nutrition, and sleep. Speaking with your doctor about improvements you can make in these areas may be helpful for mood and anxiety symptoms.

There are few studies on fibromyalgia in pregnant women. However, a study at Temple University found that women with fibromyalgia had more symptoms of pain during pregnancy than women who did not have fibromyalgia. Also, fibromyalgia symptoms seemed to be exacerbated during pregnancy. Pregnant women with fibromyalgia may experience significant pain, fatigue, and psychological stress, especially in the first three months.

At this time, no fibromyalgia medications are completely safe to use during pregnancy. In fact, doctors recommend that women with fibromyalgia go off of painkillers and antidepressants before they become pregnant. However, be sure you talk with your doctor before you stop any medicines.

To avoid letting fibromyalgia interfere with pregnancy, know what steps you can take to ease the symptoms. Then seek support from your doctors, family members, and friends. Treatments for pregnant women with fibromyalgia may include massage, exercise, yoga, meditation, and rest.

If you suffer with fatigue and ache all over, make sure you rest 20 to 30 minutes at least two or three times a day. To ease the achiness of tender point pain, try moist heat applications twice a day. A warm shower or bath is a good way to apply moist heat. Just make sure that the water temperature is 100 degrees Fahrenheit or lower and limit use to 15 -20 minutes at a time. Water that is warm enough to raise your body temperature to 101°F or higher, may cause birth defects.

Being a mother is full of sacrifices. In fact, there are several examples of heroic mothers who have foregone cancer treatment to protect their children. You have the strength to be one of those heroes. Never give up on your child.

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.”

Euthanizing Newborns

anonymous:

Hi I LOVE your blog and I was wondering… I’m pretty sure you were rooting for Donald trump to win the presidency. Which I thought was strange because he wants to defund planned parenthood & other than abortions (which I’m against), planned parenthood (supposedly) provides birth control to low income women & I remember you saying that you were fine with birth control… is there something that planned parenthood isn’t telling us or what?

cultureshift:

When given the choice between someone like Hillary Clinton, who champions for the destruction of human life through all nine months of prenatal development, and Donald Trump, who champions for the protection of human life, the choice was clear. President Trump has put his words into action by banning the use of United States taxpayer funding for overseas abortions by restoring the Mexico City Policy, redirecting funding away from the pro-abortion United Nations Population Fund, and by nominating Senate confirmed pro-life Justice Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court. He is currently working to defund Planned Parenthood, the largest destroyer of human life in the world.

Yes, Planned Parenthood provides low cost contraception, but so do thousands of other publicly funded health centers throughout the United States that don’t kill prenatal children. Sadly, because of their lack of respect for human life, Planned Parenthood also provides abortifacient birth control and drugs designed to actively kill human beings after they have been conceived. Planned Parenthood falsely claims that abortion is only 3% of what they do to human beings. Does cheap birth control justify keeping their doors open?

Consider this scenario: If killing newborns was legal and a pediatric clinic claimed that euthanizing newborns was only 3% of the services they provided, would you want your tax dollars supporting their efforts to kill those children? I suspect you would want the entire clinic not only defunded, but also permanently closed to protect human life. I suspect you would want your tax dollars to go to pediatric clinics that don’t kill children. Planned Parenthood must not only be defunded, it must be destroyed along with all other human slaughterhouses. We must restore the idea that all lives matter equally, no matter their size, location, level of dependency, or degree of wantedness. Only then can America restore her promise of Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.

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.

Pro-Life Blogging Advice

anonymous:

I’m 13 years old and I want to start blogging about how wrong abortion is so do you have any advice?

cultureshift:

Thank you for your interest in defending the lives of our prenatal children. I’m encouraged by your desire to take a stand for others. Your generation is known as Generation Z, or the iGeneration, and must fight against the ideology propagated by many of the members of Generation X (Gen X) and Generation Y (Millennials). Their ideology is founded on the belief that some lives matter less, something you clearly disagree with. In fact, their misguided belief that abortion is the great equalizer has killed one-fourth of your generation.

iGeneration

So how can the iGeneration, so named because your cohorts were born firmly rooted in the age of the internet, affect change?

Embrace Social Media. As you know, your generation, as well as Millennials, are practically one with their smartphones, having evolved into a quasicyborg. As a digital immigrant, I have leveraged this reality to reach the often unreachable. I use my blog as a launch point to seed various social media platforms, usually through automation. Use a hosting service such as WordPress for your blog. I started with Tumblr, but their staff is vehemently pro-abortion and my blog was eventually deleted, a clear sign that I was effective. Registering your own dot.com will prevent this from happening to you.

Leverage Technology. It’s becoming harder and harder to deny the humanity of prenatal human beings given the advancements in ultrasound imaging technology. The ubiquitous nature of smartphones with embedded cameras are providing a peek behind the curtain at abortion facilities. Seek out and share these images and videos far and wide. Don’t forget to tag everything you post with related, and sometimes unrelated, hashtags. This forces those who choose to ignore the reality of abortion to confront it. Yes, they will likely block you, but at least you seared the image in their mind.

Confront Evil. I show no mercy for mothers who have killed their children in the womb and use the story of their child’s death in an attempt to destigmatize abortion. This confuses both sides of the debate. The pro-life side, often squeamish about confrontation, especially with post-abortive mothers, will admonish you. The pro-abortion side will attempt to destroy you. They will throw everything they have at you to silence you because they know that their only hope is destigmatization. Once the majority of society accepts abortion as the equivalent of having a tooth pulled, all is lost. Don’t let that happen.

Love Them Both. Abortion advocates love to spread the myth that the pro-life community only cares about prenatal children, ignoring the plight of their mothers and turning their backs on these same children after their birthday. Nothing could be farther from the truth, but you will have to prove it to them. Use your blog to advocate for pregnant mothers struggling to make ends meet. Post links to resources they can take advantage of to provide for themselves and their children, inside and outside of the womb.

Be Unafraid. The internet is full of cute and innocuous memes supporting the pro-life view. These are quickly and widely shared, but they hide the reality of what abortion is and what it does to innocent prenatal children. Although you should occasionally share them to build followers, you must focus on shining the bright light of the unfiltered truth. Showing the results of abortion on the bodies of its victims is hard to stomach, but essential to ending its practice. To understand why this is critical, learn about Emmett Till.

Be Unashamed. You will be relentlessly attacked wherever and whenever you speak up for those scheduled to die today. Those who champion for the right to kill prenatal children are faced with the impossible task of defending the indefensible. When confronted by someone willing to hold a mirror up to their ideology, showing them who and what they have become, they invariably resort to ad hominems and censorship.

Be Unrelenting. This is a war, not a battle. Wars are won through a series of battles, some won, some lost. The key is resilience and persistence. It took hundreds of years to end the practice of slavery in the United States. All along the way there were abolitionists like us advocating for the rights of the enslaved. Eventually, their efforts built toward a crescendo, and its practice was ended. It’s my heartfelt belief that abortion will end within our lifetime — hopefully within mine, not yours. In other words, never give up!

I hope you understand how difficult this path is to walk, and I also hope you know how necessary it is. We’re not just fighting for each individual child, we’re fighting for our collective humanity and a better future for Generation Next.

“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.”
