An abortion conversation

If you're a woman thinking about having an abortion or a man urging the mother of his daughter to abort your child I suggest you imagine one conversation on abortion before having that abortion.

What will the conversation be between you and your daughter when you meet her in the next life? What will you say to her?  How will you justify killing her rather than having her and giving her up for adoption?

What would you say to your mom if she'd decided to abort you?  If you'd have been conceived in rape would you have been ok with being killed by your mother?  Your mom couldn't kill the monster who raped her but she decided to kill you, her own daughter. Would you be cool with that?

Suppose your mom had aborted you because your dad wasn't the "right one" or because now just wasn't the right time for your mom to have a baby.  Or because her boyfriend was going to walk if you showed up. Would you agree that your life was a small price to pay for your mothers improved quality of life?

But maybe it's not fair to ask you about your mother since she obviously loved you enough not to consider you a burden and kill you.

Don't think of your unborn daughter as family, think of her as a stranger.  How would you explain to a stranger that they needed to die so your life wouldn't be adversely affected?  If you cause a car accident do you think it's ok to kill the other driver and any witnesses so you can't be sued?

Abortion is, according to science, the willful killing of a human being; of your daughter.  How are you going to explain to her that her life was worth your gain when you meet her?  If you don't believe in an afterlife then what about the karma? Killing someone to improve your own life has got to be bad from the karma perspective.

If animals die trying to protect their unborn and there is no God, no afterlife doesn't our killing our young make us worse than animals?

Think about what you'd say to your daughter after you've had her killed and see if perhaps abortion isn't the simple thing you've been led to believe it is.  To not take the "easy" way out and just sweep your daughter under the rug is a hard thing, a thing that requires courage and love. But it's a thing that marks those who are heroes.

Most people who have or urge others to have abortions aren't evil; if they were the pro-abortion movement wouldn't have to talk about choice and use euphemisms.  The folks contemplating having their daughters killed are generally alone and in difficult situations with no support from those who should be there for them, such as the babies father.  In situations like that it's hard for even the best of people to put themselves in their unborn daughters shoes especially when the culture keeps lying about what abortion is.

But maybe if you think about what you're going to tell your unborn daughter when you eventually meet her you'll be able to think about just what is going on and cut through the lies that the abortion profiteers like Planned Parenthood are telling you; they tell you they care but they don't do abortions for free.

If you don't want to talk to your unborn daughter then try imagining the conversation you will have with the daughter you decide not to kill later in your life, the daughter you have with the "right one".

How will you explain to her that she's special and that while you killed her half sister you really truly love her? What will your daughter think when she realizes that the value you assign to your children depends on how they affect your life? You didn't think about it that way when you felt that abortion was your only out but in the cold light of day the daughter you let live will see that her value to you is conditional based on how you perceived she'd impact your life.  If she was the daughter of another "Mr Wrong" she too would have had her life ended.

We're all selfish; it's one of the consequences of being human. But by talking to our daughters before we enter the abortion clinic maybe we can see our way to be the heroic figures that every child deserves.
