My Interview with a College Student Regarding Abortion.

Below you will find a link to an article that I was interviewed for. It’s by Elon University student, Alexandra Schonfeld. I’m always happy to give my personal testimony on my abortion experience, in hopes it will prevent even one woman from undergoing this horrific experience and committing this aweful sin.

Here are my full answers to the questions I was asked by Ms. Schonfeld and below that is her article, entitled ” Seeking and Abortion in the Bible Belt.”

INTERVIEW QUESTIONS w/ my responses-

1. Over the past year, how have you seen access to abortion in North Carolina, and nationwide change, if at all?

“In the past few years we’ve seen a trend of states enacting regulatory laws, individually. Currently I believe access to abortion nationwide is much unchanged. And in North Carolina, access is definitely there.”

2. For some people who are pro-choice, they believe that North Carolina upholds pretty restrictive legislation surrounding abortion including the 72 hour waiting period after counseling, and law that requires doctors to send ultrasounds of a fetus past 16 weeks to the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services — what do you think of all this? What do you think of these guidelines put in place by the state surrounding abortion?

“As a woman who’s been through the harrowing experience of an abortion, I’m personally thankful to NC legislators for enacting the 72 hour wait. I believe it, at the very least, gives the woman a chance to take a deep breath and consider or reconsider her options in regard to her pregnancy. Perhaps she’ll be blessed to find a crisis pregnancy center, where she can obtain an ultrasound of her preborn baby…You know that old saying ” Act in haste, repent at leisure?” Well hopefully during this period she’ll decide for life- the life of her preborn baby and have little to later repent of. I hate to see a woman do as I did -pressure herself out of panic , fear, and outside pressure, and cave into a seemingly” quick fix” . Abortion is anything but a fix. It has such lasting repercussions.

Regarding the provision of ultrasounds to DHHS, it’s an important safeguard against providers breaking the law by performing latter- term abortions than the law allows. It’s accountability for the medical community involved in this contentious practice. In many people’s eyes, they’d have to question the ethics of a doctor even consenting to perform abortions in the first place- going against the Hippocratic Oath to -” first do no harm…” If they’re willing to take innocent life they may be willing to fudge the numbers, i.e. weeks of pregnancy, just to make another buck, perhaps? I refer you to Philadelphia abortionist Kermit Gosnell, as case in point.”

3. Do you have an opinion on the Supreme Court judge nominee Brett Kavanaugh and his perceived opinion on abortion and roe v. wade?

“I really don’t have much comment on Kavanaugh. He himself is a bit closed- mouthed on Roe v. Wade calling it “settled law”, but I think we all know he’s a conservative with all that implies. We’ll see, I guess.”

4. What do you think about resources such as the North Carolina Abortion fund that help people who may not able to afford an abortion, fund abortions?

The Carolina Abortion Fund states the following on their Twitter- “We believe that income should not limit individuals’ ability to make reproductive decisions. ‘_ Carolina abortion fund.

“I actually believe the same. Just because a woman finds herself pregnant and yet has little means, doesn’t equate to her solving what she perceives as an insurmountable economic hardship, by terminating the life of her child. Sure this group wants to help her scrape together enough money to have her baby scraped out of her womb. But,let’s instead look around at all of the agencies and resources that exist to help this same woman keep her baby. This group promotes the idea of expanding Medicaid to pay for abortions. I point to, instead, Medicaid for pregnant women and children, which can help a woman pay pregnancy costs and help afterward with her child, if need be. And better yet, faith based organizations or the church, if you will, should and does show their love by supporting pregnant women via pregnancy centers which provide her with many baby items, counseling, education, and moral support.

My desire is to see a culture of life come into fruition. Our country’s current death culture is a dead-end no pun intended. We see the evil trickle- down from abortion in that life is cheaper and less meaningful all around. We as caring, justice-loving, peace makers must stop telling women that killing their babies will somehow lead them to a better life. That is a lie. Currently the U.S. is falling below population replacement numbers. God had intended these souls to be born to balance out…what abortion has created- the societal imbalance of an aging population with not enough young and strong base to carry on. So if economics is your thing, you should be pro- life! But , truly believe the law of our mutual Creator is written upon all of our hearts, let’s stop going against that law. Thanks.’

“No Children Allowed”

“No Children Allowed”  is listed among instructions for women seeking abortions at a local clinic. Ironic huh? Well, of course no children are allowed- born or preborn. This “instruction” should be listed as the clinic’s mission statement, in my opinion.

The clinic’s “instruction” is erroneous, however, because children under the age of 18 may be accompanied by one adult female.  In North Carolina an emancipated minor may obtain an abortion with no consent. And some minors may be able to obtain abortion via judicial waiver or “medical emergency”.

In reading over some NC abortion laws I also discovered more irony. According to Findlaw; here is the statutory definition of illegal abortion :  Willfully administer to mother, prescribe, advise, procure substance or instrument with intent to destroy child or procure miscarriage.  Oops, am I reading the law correctly does it say “…intent to destroy CHILD…” Mmm…so according to the statutes that “blob” growing inside the woman is defined as a child and to willfully destroy it comes with the punishment of a class H felony.  Again the language of the law itself shows the truth and betrays the notion that the preborn is nonhuman, or somehow not a child, when it says “…administer to the MOTHER…”  From this language, it seems that I am to infer that the pregnant woman is in fact a  Mother already- i.e. before the baby,fetus, child emerges from the uterus!  If only women could understand this intrinsic truth. She is already a Mother, the moment the child is conceived. Whether she “feels” like she is suited to be a mother or whether she wants the child or does not want it. She, herself has had her life irrevocably and permanently changed by becoming a mother. And as a mother myself I can tell you, you can’t forget you are a mother, ever. Whether your child is in utero or alive or dead… Your life is forever changed when you become pregnant, regardless of the outcome of that pregnancy.

Although I find semantics entertaining and fun, being the daughter and granddaughter of English teachers. I value the truth more. And the truth is that is is a sin and a shame and a breaking of the law of our Creator for anyone for any reason to destroy life.    A woman who has conceived a child is a mother. That mother should never make the horrible choice to kill and destroy her own child nor should she allow anyone else to do so for any reason.  I say the preceding because I was a mother who did just that- to my eternal sorrow.   MY opinion, however, is not important,  the law and word of the Creator  is what matters.  One can read more about Him and his law and love in a book called the Bible.

Would that those in authority would read the Bible and could understand the evils they are legislating. Someday all those who promote and perform abortion (the killing of innocent preborn babies) will have to stand before the Ultimate Lawmaker and give an account for why they called wrong right and right wrong thus breaking God’s law.  Let those of us who understand pray for those who don’t, especially those in authority, as the Bible commands us.

Only the master linguist can create and thereby truly define LIFE>
