Woman Has Abortion Because She Couldn’t Fit Into Her Wedding Dress
Life News ^ | Sarah Terzo

Posted on 12/26/2013 9:50:46 AM PST by Morgana

In 2005, the Los Angeles Times ran a story by Stephanie Simon entitled “Offering Abortion, Rebirth.”

Simon interviewed an abortion provider named Dr. William F. Harrison and observed abortions at his clinic. Harrison died in 2010, after closing down his clinic because of health reasons.

The article quotes Harrison saying, “I am destroying life.”

Simon described witnessing an abortion on an 18-year-old girl. The author says the girl had not told her parents about her pregnancy. The unborn baby was 13 weeks along. At 13 weeks, the child has fingers, complete with fingernails. If female, the child has a uterus of her own. He or she can respond to touch and has both a heartbeat and brain waves. He can also suck his thumb. (See ultrasound pictures of 13-week-old babies here.)

According to the author:

Harrison glances at an ultrasound screen frozen with an image of the fetus taken moments before. Against the fuzzy black-and-white screen, he sees the curve of a head, the bend of an elbow, the ball of a fist.

“You may feel some cramping while we suction everything out,” Harrison tells the patient.

A moment later, he says: “You’re going to hear a sucking sound.”

The abortion takes two minutes. The patient lies still and quiet, her eyes closed, a few tears rolling down her cheeks. The friend who has accompanied her stands at her side, mutely stroking her arm.

When he’s done, Harrison performs another ultrasound. The screen this time is blank but for the contours of the uterus. “We’ve gotten everything out of there,” he says.

Right after her abortion, the teenager said:

“There’s things wrong with abortion,” she says. “But I want to have a good life. And provide a good life for my child.” To keep this baby now, she says, when she’s single, broke and about to start college, “would be unfair.”

The article also profiled several other women coming in for abortions.

A high school volleyball player says she doesn’t want to give up her body for nine months. “I realize just from the first three months how it changes everything,” she says.

Kim, a single mother of three, says she couldn’t bear to give away a child and have to wonder every day if he were loved. Ending the pregnancy seemed easier, she says – as long as she doesn’t let herself think about “what could have been.”

Many pro-lifers find it hard to understand why some women would rather abort than put the baby up for adoption – pro-lifers tend to think it would be better to adopt out a child than to kill that child. But often the thought of giving up a baby is painful for women, and many women have heard the message over and over again that abortion is not killing.

The article also describes:

Amanda, a 20-year-old administrative assistant, says it’s not the obstacles that surprise her – it’s how normal and unashamed she feels as she prepares to end her first pregnancy.

“It’s an everyday occurrence,” she says as she waits for her 2:30 p.m. abortion. “It’s not like this is a rare thing.”

Amanda was 15 weeks pregnant and has not told her boyfriend about his child. Amanda also says:

I’ve been praying a lot and that’s been a real source of strength for me. I really believe God has a plan for us all. I have a choice, and that’s part of my plan.

As much as pro-lifers don’t like to admit it, many religious people get abortions. There are some churches that support abortion. In a recent Facebook post, Abby Johnson mentioned that a member of her Episcopalian church told her to leave after she became involved in the “antichoice” movement. One study says that many women who have abortions claim to be Christian and that one out of five women coming in is a self-identified born-again or evangelical Christian (1).

Later in the article, two other women give their reasons for having abortions.

His first patient of the day, Sarah, 23, says it never occurred to her to use birth control, though she has been sexually active for six years. When she became pregnant this fall, Sarah, who works in real estate, was in the midst of planning her wedding. “I don’t think my dress would have fit with a baby in there,” she says.

The last patient of the day, a 32-year-old college student named Stephanie, has had four abortions in the last 12 years. She keeps forgetting to take her birth control pills. Abortion “is a bummer,” she says, “but no big stress.”

People on both sides of the abortion debate often say that abortion is an agonizing decision for women. They say that women do not take abortion lightly. Many pro-lifers view women as the second victims of abortion. Although this is often true, it is the sad case that some women do use abortion as birth control.

The clinic that Dr. Harrison works at makes an effort to shield women from guilt. In the abortionists’ own words, “[w]e try to make sure she doesn’t ever feel guilty … for what she feels she has to do.”

The article goes on to say:

For the few women who arrive ambivalent or beset by guilt, Harrison’s nurse has posted statistics on the exam-room mirror: One out of every four pregnant women in the US chooses abortion. A third of all women in this country will have at least one abortion by the time they’re 45.

“You think there’s room in hell for all those women?” the nurse will ask.

If the woman remains troubled, the nurse tells her to go home and think it over.

“If they truly feel they’re killing a baby, we’re not going to do an abortion for them,” says the nurse, who asked not to be identified for fear protesters would target her.

This sounds all well and good, but right after this statement, the article goes on to quote this very same nurse saying to a teenager who is 5 weeks pregnant:

“It’s completely formed about nine weeks,” the nurse tells her. “Yours is more like a chicken yolk.”

According to The Biology of Prenatal Development:

Between 4 and 5 weeks, the brain continues its rapid growth and divides into 5 distinct sections.

….

The cerebral hemispheres appear, gradually becoming the largest parts of the brain.

Functions eventually controlled by the cerebral hemispheres include thought, learning, memory, speech, vision, hearing, voluntary movement, and problem-solving.

You can watch the heart of a 4-week-old unborn baby beating at this link. The baby, even at 5 weeks, is hardly an egg yolk.

Although Dr. Harrison admits that what he’s doing is killing, he contradicts himself later by saying, “It’s not a baby to me until the mother tells me it’s a baby.”

As of 2005, Dr. Harrison had performed over 20,000 abortions. He left practice in 2010 and died shortly afterward. When Harrison left practice, his abortion clinic closed its doors. He was unable to find another doctor willing to perform abortions at his clinic.

Yeah, our new pastor told my mom to take down the signs that said “Abortion stops a beating heart” and “Smile, your mom chose life” with a smiley face on it. Every Jan for the past 30 years these types of signs have been in the front yard of the church, and no one had a problem with it, but our new pastor does. He said that they were offensive and that members of the congregation had complained, but I think the only person complaining was his wife, but that’s a whole different story.

Hitler and others also didn’t think it was all that a big a deal to kill jews. Murderers often justify their crimes to themselves. I am sure Jim Jones thought God was on his side too.

Words don’t begin to describe the horror of a baby being ripped apart by a vacuum cleaner.

What if we were to have told “DR” Harrison that this was his fate? To be dismembered by a giant, high vacuum nozzle, limb by limb?

And that he had no say in the matter, this was his fate.

This is what that serial murderer did to 20,000 human beings.

Good thing he’s gone. Can only imagine what it’s like where he is now.

Selfish. Incredibly selfish. “i can’t fit into my dress, so I’m going to murder our baby”

“I play volleyball and this piece of tissue is getting in my way, so I’m going to have it sucked out of me, piece by piece”

“no way I’m going to tell my boyfriend, who is he? Just some guy that impregnated me. I’m going to kill our child and he doesn’t even get to know”

Hmmm. don’t all men want a wife like one of these???????????????? and do I really need a sarc tag here?!

I find all these woman horrible, but the worst is the one who aborted because she wouldn't fit in her wedding dress. What an awful woman. I believe her marriage will not last anyway. She is way to selfish. Either her husband is going to have to take care of her ever whim or the first time he says no, she will be out of there. Hopefully he wakes up and dumps her.

Well, it’s gotta be in the millions cause that’s how many abortions have been performed.

No wonder so many younger people have mental problems. How do you deal with the thought that your mother would kill her own children and that it might have been you?

Including a number of so-called pastors. The president of the Episcopal Divinity School is a woman who aborted her own baby so she could go to seminary. She now declares that "abortion is a blessing."

It should not surprise any pro-lifer that nominal "Christians" have as many abortions as nonbelievers. Sin besets us all.

Murder for convenience.

The article quotes Harrison saying, “I am destroying life.”
Yes, quack. You are. The only difference between "Dr" Harrison and a mob hitman, is that usually the targets of mob hitmen aren't innocent babies.

Simon described witnessing an abortion on an 18-year-old girl.The author says the girl had not told her parents about her pregnancy.

Murder to avoid embarrassment. Not much different than when some dude murders his mistress who is about to tell his wife.

“There’s things wrong with abortion,” she says. “But I want to have a good life. And provide a good life for my child.” To keep this baby now, she says, when she’s single, broke and about to start college, “would be unfair.”

Not unfair, inconvenient.

A high school volleyball player says she doesn’t want to give up her body for nine months.....Kim, a single mother of three, says she couldn’t bear to give away a child

Inconvenient.

The clinic that Dr. Harrison works at makes an effort to shield women from guilt. In the abortionists’ own words, “[w]e try to make sure she doesn’t ever feel guilty … for what she feels she has to do.”

Murder for hire hitman stay in business easier that way.

As of 2005, Dr. Harrison had performed over 20,000 abortions. He left practice in 2010 and died shortly afterward. When Harrison left practice, his abortion clinic closed its doors. He was unable to find another doctor willing to perform abortions at his clinic.

When I was in law school, one of my professors had several brothers who were doctors. He said that usually abortion doctors were at the bottom of the class and most doctors did not want to do abortions. If there is any good news, it is this. The number of abortion clinics are declining. Many are closing.

"I’ve been praying a lot and that’s been a real source of strength for me. I really believe God has a plan for us all. I have a choice, and that’s part of my plan."

Here in the mid-South (Upper East Tennessee) I'd wager the vast majority of girls and women who abort, are declared Christians.

You hear girls say, "Jesus understands my situation. He's so forgiving. He knows why I have to have this abortion. ... Besides, I'm only a little bit pregnant. So I'll have this little procedure, I'll cry a little after, and then that's behind me. Jesus wants me to do what's best for everyone, and this is best for me, my boyfriend, my mom and dad, AND the baby.

"I pray God will send the baby's soul to somebody else, somebody who's ready for him and will love him. Doesn't a baby deserve that?"

It's like the baby's going to be adopted after he's aborted and reincarnated elsewhere.

(Shakes head.)

Most European kings had court astrologers well into the Renaissance. Astrology was “science”, not in conflict with religion, but supplementing it. There are Christians today who believe in Global Warming, another faith based system.

I believe the Evil Pelosi referred to abortion as “sacred” - these are sick people clear & simple.

Back in the 1970’s or ‘80s, as I recall, National Geographic had a fantastic show about the development of the human infant from conception to full term. I believe it was a team of Swedish doctors who filmed through a laparascope into the womb. I would show this video to every young person in middle school and that should dispel the lies told by the Eugenicists and so-called Pastors.

But even armed with the facts, the morals/world view of some people will never allow them to care a rat’s patoot about murdering their own child.

In Japan, I hear the women have a place to go to grieve their aborted babies. Here it is just bio-waste.

When women who use abortion for birth control actually do want to have a child, many have great difficulties getting pregnant. And the closer we get to Brave New World with manufactured babies for better “quality control.”

When abortion clinics shut down, do pregnancy rates go up? Or does celibacy increase? I have read that it is the latter.

I’ve spoken to many liberals face-to-face. They are so out-of-touch with reality it boggles the mind.

One was a 60+ something, white male (I’m in this last group after the comma, lol). It was all Bush, of course. Granted Bush spent like a drunken sailor.

But I pointed out that BO had run up more debt in 5 years than Bush did in 8.

He scoffed. I told him, hey don’t believe me, just go look at the CBO’s own numbers. I doubt he ever did.

Japan also has the common sense to ban them after five months of gestation unless medically necessary to save the life of the mother.

They also have a class from elementary school on called dotoku (morals) which includes even Bible stories like the Good Samaritan.

I kid you not. All three of our kids attended public school in Japan, a non-Christian country, which reads Bible passages and sings traditional as well as secular Christmas carols in public schools.

Just so you don’t think I’m imagining or making up the wedding announcement story, it was in the news around Labor Day 2013. The guy is a prof. athlete with the Miami Heat. According to my Google hits, Billy Hallowell at the Blaze covered it. And if course it’s in my Twitter feed. Billy Hallowell, like me noted that the couple had had 2 little kids that they didnt abort before getting married and that the guy (forget his name) was supporting a little boy he’d begotten in high school. Just for some reason, they felt that the timing of this pregnancy was wrong. Much was made of his supportiveness, implying that this strengthened their relationship, etc. Whatever.
I suppose at least you have to give credit for not being hypocritical. You know darn well that a lot of brides have had abortions, sometimes because of pressure from a mother who’s afraid of what people will think, or because pregnancy will bollix up elaborate wedding plans. At least these people are open about it.

Incidentally, a tip for girls: Being supportive during an abortion isn’t neccessarily a sign of good character in a guy. I’m more interested in how he behaves when the girl decides to keep the pregnancy, even if he wanted an abortion.

I’ll raise you on that one.

There are these Fundie churches that stress how a woman should “obey” her husband, this includes having an abortion if he deems it necessary. I actually read a story of this. Not only did the church deacon and his wife tell the woman to “obey” her husband and have the abortion but they drove her to the clinic and dropped her off down at the end of the street. Of course Mr. and Mrs. Deacon were not willing to take the woman into the clinic and sit with her in order to help her “obey” her husband, as was her spineless husband who by the way divorced her some time later. What a surprise. NOT!

Here’s the book I read it in if anyone’s interested.

Yes I said stupid. The was sat in the abortion clinic waiting room with her Bible praying to God to be delivered just like “God delivered Issac from Abraham”. She cried to the workers as she held her Bible and said she did not want to do this. She prayed and prayed and prayed but did not get up and walk the hell out of there? Are these women so stupid they “obey” their husband right to an abortion clinic table?

She should have walked out and said F*** you to her husband, her church, and kept her baby and found a new church and a new life.

I can’t believe she was that stupid.

speaking of which you did read this in the article above???

“One study says that many women who have abortions claim to be Christian and that one out of five women coming in is a self-identified born-again or evangelical Christian (1). “

but they are never ever ever Catholic?

Catholics aren’t Christians when they read things like that I guess? I guess that is always a convenient dodge.

There are a lot of people out there who think they are Christian because there are so many “unitarian” and “mathodist” churches that pretend to be Christian.

So I am not sure what your point is.

Look, all, with something like 1 out of 3 women in this country having an abortion by the time she hits menopause, you can be sure there's plenty of guilt to go around amongst Catholics and Fundies, mainline Protestants and Jews, clergy and laity, women and men.

Rather than trying to figure out mirror, mirror on the wall, who's the most azhatted hypocrite of all, we should be standing outside of those clinics with big ol' 3' by 5' posters that say, "God sent me as a sign to you. No, you're not supposed to do this." You could probably save some little papists and fundies from being knifed to death.

Ya know?

When my husband and I became pregnant with our 10 year old, he ran into an old friend picking up Gatorade at the store for his fiancee with morning sickness. I thought if was sweet until she aborted to avoid “ruining” their wedding a few months away. Our daughter is 10; their child never had a chance.
