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.’

A “Great” Advancement for Women

I got a “popular” fashion-type magazine given to me the other day.

I saw an ad for a “seasonal birth control pill” for women, which allows women to have only 4 menstrual periods per year.  As some of you know the birth control pill has been around since 1960, though there are now many variations on the original,the one I am outlining is such a one.

It struck me as incredible that women actually want to take these pills to prevent pregnancy so much so that they would risk the company’s listed warnings or “adverse reactions”. I’m not even sure doctors know what all of these things are:

  • Thrombophebitis
  • Arterial Thromboembolism
  • Pulmonary Embolism
  • Myocardial Infarction
  • Cebrebral Hemmorhage
  • Cerebral Thrombosis
  • Hypertension
  • Gallbladder Disease
  • Hepatic adenomas or Begnign Liver tumors
  • Mesenteric Thrombosis
  • Retinal Thrombosis
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Gastrointesinal Symptoms (abdominal cramps and bloating)
  • Breatkthrough Bleeding
  • Spotting
  • Change in Menstrual Flow
  • Amenorrhea
  • Temporary Infertility after discontinuation
  • Edema/ Fluid Retention
  • Melasma/ Cholasma (which may persist)
  • Breast Changes (Tenderness, Enlargement, and Secretions)
  • Change in Weight or Appetite (increase or decrease)
  • Change in Cervical ectropion and secretion
  • Possible dimunition in laction when given post-partum
  • Cholestatic Jaundice
  • Migraine Headache
  • Rash (allergic)
  • Mood Changes (including depression)
  • Vaginitis (including candidiasis)
  • Change in Corneal curvature (steepening)
  • Intolerance to contact lenses
  • Decrease in Serum Folate levels
  • Exacerbation of Systemic Lupus Erythamatosis
  • Exacerbation of Porphyria
  • Exacerbation of Chorea
  • Aggrevation of Varicose Veins
  • Anaphylactic/ Anaphylactoid reaction (including Uticaria, Angioedema, and sever reactions with respiratory and circulatory reactions)

“The following adverse reactions have been reported in users of contraceptives and the association has neither been confirmed or refuted:”

  • Cataracts
  • Optic Neuritis (which may lead to partial or complete loss of vision)
  • Cystitis-like syndrome
  • Headache
  • Nervousness
  • Dizziness
  • Hirsutism
  • Loss of scalp hair
  • Erythema multiforme
  • Erythema nodosum
  • Hemmorhagic eruption
  • Impaired Renal Function
  • Hemolytic Uremic syndrome
  • Budd-Chiari syndrome
  • Acne
  • Changes in Libido
  • Colitis
  • Pancreatitis
  • Dysmenorrhea

So you say “that’s all?”  just 50 possible life-threatening and possibly permanently damaging medical reactions that could happen. Well, I wonder is it really worth it?  Who takes these drugs? I wonder?  Well lots and lots of women take them. I was one…

Yes, I used to take birth control pills when I was younger so that I could “sleep with” (actually fornicate with my boyfriend(s). I wanted to do something wrong and I did not want to suffer any of the consequences, though,later I did and still do to some extent. I think that the laundry list above is only a partial list of what can happen to a woman (her body) when she uses means such as birth control to avoid consequences of sex (and often sex outside of marriage).

What is not mentioned here are the immense Spiritual Consequences to having sex outside of Marriage-which is God’s plan for sex. When two people “join” in such and intimate way there are ties that are formed. These ties are there whether they are acknowledged or understood by the parties involved. These soul-ties are something that cannot be erased easily. The Bible speaks to this when it talks about what results when a man joins himself with a harlot- essentially the two become one.  1 Cor.6:16 ” What? Know you not that he which is joined to an harlot is one body? For two, says the Lord, shall be one flesh.”

So Ladies, Girls, and Women, please do not allow yourselves to play the harlot. I know our culture makes it seem okay, even glamorous to do so. But I can tell you from personal experience you will get hurt from it, one way or the other. Maybe you will contract one of the health problems listed above, maybe you will get your heart broken when your relationship ends, maybe you will end up with an unplanned pregnancy, and maybe you will lose your soul, forever.

There is an answer and a hope. It is found in the Bible and in the person of Jesus Christ. I pray you can know Him like I do. And if you have sins, you can be forgiven, and cleansed. It’s not too late until you are dead.

Please, take a tiny-mustard seed amount of faith and call out and ask Jesus to become your Savior and Lord. He is only waiting for you to do so. He will not force you! He loves you and wants to to come to Him freely. That is why He gave us each a free will. He does not desire robotic automatons to follow him. He wants you, and He will receive you just as you are!
