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.’

Pro-Life Media- An Oxymoron?

The issue of tv programming has recently become foremost in my life and mind.  I have spent some time visiting a close relative with my young children. And this person, who claims to be a born-again believer has the television on 24/7.  This relative of mine loves to watch the most horrific shows. The person likes NCIS, CSI, Charmed, House, etc…. These shows are so filled with murder, rape, cursings, and other horrors and sins. I am in shock, almost.

While visiting this relative I had to work very diligently to keep my children away from the large tv in the middle of the family room. I had to keep their play pen in another room and really almost could not let them even walk through the room where the tv was located due to the fact that at any moment a picture of an autopsy or some scary music or a witch or demon was being portrayed on the boob tube.

This issue of Television viewing is very much of a “Life Issue”. I feel that the programming available has almost nil life affirming content. Maybe the only solution is either  chuck the tv out the window or perhaps get Sky Angel?

Romans 1:28-32 shows what tv is all about-

28And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

29Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,

30Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,

31Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:

32Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

I think the part about taking pleasure in those that are doing these horrible depictions on tv is where the sin really comes in. And in a home that has its airwaves filled by tv, one’s peace is disturbed. I know mine is.

The situation is sad. I can only work on me. But I do exhort you Christians who claim to love and follow Christ who died a painful and bloody death on the cross, to please reject the tv or the Hell-i-vision as it were.

We must choose life and most especially for our children. We cannot allow them to witness all of the trash and death culture of tv.  The tv cannot be the family altar!

God Bless and may He help us all to eschew evil in all its forms.
