I Love Abortion: Implying Otherwise Accomplishes Nothing for Women’s Rights (BARF)
RH Reality Check ^ | March 14, 2012 | Jessica DelBalzo

Posted on 04/16/2013 3:30:35 AM PDT by markomalley

I love abortion. I don’t accept it. I don’t view it as a necessary evil. I embrace it. I donate to abortion funds. I write about how important it is to make sure that every woman has access to safe, legal abortion services. I have bumper stickers and buttons and t-shirts proclaiming my support for reproductive freedom. I love abortion.

And I bristle every time a fellow activist uses a trendy catch-phrase or rallying cry meant to placate pro-lifers. The first of these, “Make abortion safe, legal, and rare!” has been used for decades as a call for abortion rights.

Safe and legal are concepts I fully support, but rare is something I cannot abide. I understand the theoretical mindset: it is better for a woman to prevent an unwanted pregnancy than to bear the physical and financial burden of an abortion. While my own abortion involved very little pain and a minimal financial expense, one which my ex-boyfriend was willing to share with me, even I can admit that using condoms or the pill is preferable to eight weeks of nausea and weight gain. Contraception is a valuable tool.

However, there is no need to suggest that abortion be rare. To say so implies a value judgement, promoting the idea that abortion is somehow distasteful or immoral and should be avoided. Even with affordable, accessible birth control, there will be user errors, condoms that break, moments of spontaneity. The best contraceptive access in the world won’t change the fact that we are merely human and imperfect in our routines.

Finally, an honest pro-abort opinion.

No less disgusting for its content; however, at least she is candid about it.

A pro-abort who is actually honest about her opinion of abortion. A rarity.

Ping for your files and your catholic/moral absolutes lists

New Jersey Woman Devotes Life to Natural Families

With her long braids, Ms. Jessica DelBalzo looks more like a farm girl than an anti-adoption activist. DelBalzo was a student at Bridgewater-Raritan high school in Bridgewater, New Jersey when she first started researching adoption. "In American Law class, we used to have a lot of debates, and one came up about abortion. Quite a few of the other students kept saying how adoption was so much better and something just clicked with me that made me question everything I thought I knew about adoption. That's when I started researching it, talking with and emailing natural parents and adoptees, and getting past the rhetoric to see what was really going on."

So, in other words she loves immorality, irresponsibility and murder, This woman is depraved. satan must adore her.

If scum like this loves abortion, then she should be sent to an abortion clinic and be made to perform an abortion so the blood of that child would be on her hands. Trash like this are good with words, now let us see if she will match words with deeds.

Ok, articles like this one make me realize that there is no rapture because we are most certainly in end times and if we were to avoid the tribulation, we would be gone by now...

**********************

Let not your heart be troubled. The end times are beginning and we must give testimony to what we see. The Lord is giving us a glimpse as to what the world is going to be like for those left behind and we must step-up and help the Lord save as many souls as possible before He comes to take us away.

Have no fear, have faith. He will not let us down. KEEP THE FAITH! :)

You are right. I will keep to my task and remember that He is with us always. Even in troubled times.

Sometimes I just look around and think... I don’t know. I am glad my mom and grandmother left this world before they saw it like this. My mother spoke of Christian persecution when I was a child and I couldn’t believe it. I knew not everyone was a Christian, but I couldn’t imagine the WORLD persecuting Christians to the extent that it is now. I can only imagine later. Kudos Mom, you knew. Glad you avoided it, but your faith told you it was true and you believed/knew. Even when it seemed ridiculous to a lot of people.

Just another lsut wanting to escape the consequences of her actions and force someone else to pay for her mistakes. Is she related to the Fluke slut by any chance?

anti adoption activist? Yes, a lot of feminists are.

Just imagine a world without Steve Jobs, Moses, and all those other kids who were given a chance in life by being adopted...

AMEN!

The world must fall into chaos for the antichrist to come and declare he will fix the worlds problems and bring peace. The same way some worship obama will be the same way they will worship and adore the antichrist. We will be gone because He said it will be so.

He is separating the goats from the sheep, the wheat from the tares. I am praying for souls to be saved everyday, even when it seems so difficult to do. They beat Him, whipped Him, and hung Him to die for our sins, and He asked Father to forgive them. He kept His promise then and we were given the gift of eternal life through His suffering.

He will not let us down. :)

A little something for you. God bless.

So why not encourage sterilization among the sexually promiscuous? Then they can fornicate all they want and no one else has to pay for it, either in cash or by the taking of an innocent life.

Pro-abortion is one thing but anti-adoption? Why would anyone be anti-adoption? And does her opposition to such extend to gay and lesbian couples?

She revels in killing early stage humans but is appalled by seeing them live to be adopted into loving homes. The mind boggles at such evil.
The baby slated for killing in the Roe v Wade case lived. The courts move slowly and the Supreme Court decision authorizing the baby’s execution came only after she was born and immediately put up for adoption: one that got away. When I last heard of this lucky survivor—about 10 years ago—she was herself the mother of a little girl. There are two people who would disagree with the cold, murderous author of this piece.

We should not encourage sterilization among the sexually promiscuous, because this defaces the sexual health and embodied wholeness God has made, and advances the agenda of genderless, deformed sex.

What we should encourage is repentance for promiscuity, atonement and healing.

There's actually quite a number of people out there who are anti-adoption. Mind-boggling but true.

They often center on the pain experienced by a woman who is separated for life from her child, and some adoptees' persistent feeling of "displacement" and their longing to find their genetic parents, especially their birthmother.

These are realities. They deserve some attention.

But murder cannot be "better." That is madness.
