March 23, 2012 (LiveActionNews.org) -Jessica DelBalzo loves abortion. We know this because she wrote an entire post for RH Reality Check about her unwavering adoration for the legal termination of unborn children and her desire to keep abortion anything but rare. In her opinion, pro-choicers who say abortion should be rare are implying that abortion is wrong and are just trying to please pro-lifers. She writes:
Terminating a pregnancy is not an unethical act, yet suggesting that abortion should be rare implies that there is something undesirable about having one.
Suggesting that abortion be safe, legal, and rare, and crowing that no one likes abortion, accomplishes nothing for womens rights. Rather than trying to cozy up to the forced-birth camp, women who value their freedom should be proud to say that they like abortion. In fact, they should venerate it whole-heartedly. Abortion is our last refuge, the one final, definitive instrument that secures our bodily autonomy. Whats not to love?
Apparently, without legal abortion, women would lose all control over their own bodies, and they might as well give up all of their other rights, too. But the first feminists of this country saw what abortion really is: the destruction of motherhood, which is the true gift of being a strong female. Women raise and influence future generations more than anyone. Thats power.
But equally distressing as DelBalzos deep devotion to abortion and her belief that it gives women power is her hatred for adoption. She works diligently to eradicate legal adoption because shed rather kill babies than give them to a loving family. As with abortion, she doesnt want adoption rare, either. She wants it gone. Seriously.
DelBalzo operates Adoption: Legalized Lies, a self-described grassroots initiative to put an end to adoption. The front page of the groups website shows a child happily holding a handmade sign that says, Adoption Hurts Babies. This is perplexing, since adoption leaves a child not only alive, but in a loving home, while abortion either burns the child to death or dismembers it limb by limb. Even if birth parents cant raise a child, they can give their child a good life, rather than allow her body to be ripped apart and thrown into a bin of medical waste.
In addition, for all of her love of abortion, DelBalzo ironically finds adoption to be not only unnecessary, but also unethical. She bases most of her reasoning on the tragedies of the Baby Scoop Era, a period from 1950 through the early 1970s during which unwed mothers were forced to hide their pregnancies and give their children up for adoption. This was obviously traumatic for these young mothers, who suffered from depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, and grief. But the Baby Scoop Era ended over 30 years ago. Since the legalization of abortion immediately following the Baby Scoop Era in 1973, over 54 million unborn children have been killed, each of them unnecessarily.
Abortion is the deliberate destruction of a human life. Its feticide. No one can successfully dispute that. It is the most unethical legal act in existence. The years from 1973 until the end of abortion will someday be known as the Baby-Killing Era. To say adoption is the unethical choice is absurd and contemptible.
While birth parents often feel loss and grief, and adopted children often grow up struggling with their own sense of self, adoption is and will always be a better option than abortion. Rather than being dead, for instance, the child is alive and, more often than not, is happy, with a chance at a successful life. Plus, with the existence of open adoption, many birth parents can remain a part of their childrens lives or hope to be a part of them in the future as the children grow.
While DelBalzos extreme statements push the buttons of pro-life America, she is giving pro-choice America an opportunity to contemplate their position. Most pro-choicers I know have said that they themselves would never have an abortion, which means that deep down, they know its unethical and unacceptable. I hope that pro-choicers, if asked to state that they love abortion, might just begin rethinking their stance.

Well gosh, if abortion is so wonderful, then she must be really bitter about her parents making a decision to let her live.
How completely selfish of them!
She hates herself; the contradictions this sets up in what’s left of her mind have made her hate life itself.
It would be instructive to follow her progress in the future but it won’t be happening. “Useful Idiot” is invariably a temporary role.
Even if you think abortion is no more important than a tonsillectomy, why would you want tonsillectomies to be common?
You’ve got sick unwanted tonsils, you have a surgical risk, it hurts in recovery, it’s expensive...surely it would be better if tonsillectomies were safe, legal and rare.
The reason pro-abortionists do not want abortion to be rare is because then people would condemn it more - they be less likely to have a cousin or a best friend or a mother who’d had an abortion. Regretful women couldn’t be told, it’s no big deal, lots of women have abortions, get over it.
Safe, legal and common makes a lot of sense to them.
I had a sorority sister who when begged to please give her baby life and place him or her with a loving family, replied “and never know where it is?”
I am glad Jessica DelBalzo will be in the “D” section in front of God’s judgement seat, I will probably be a few sections away. Boy anything closer and you might get scorched from the fall-out. If she has the balz to say that in front of The Almighty.
grrrr. I’m gritting my teeth while reading this article. She is a soulless moron! I cannot imagine the levels of selfishness she exhibits—I pray that God has a special place in H_ll for her where she can contemplate her self-centered existence for all eternity.
We have a beautiful daughter that we adopted from Russia when she was 8 1/2 months old. Every time she has a birthday I pray that her birth mother somehow knows that her baby is now safe & loved & so wanted in our family. I also pray a grateful thanks that the birth mother did not leave her in the Siberian winter snow to freeze or abort her. At least she had enough compassion to allow my daughter to go full term and then deliver her. It must have been heartbreaking to leave such a beautiful baby in the hospital, but I am forever in her debt! My daughter is of my heart, and of her birth mother’s body, but she is God’s creation first!!! I tell my daughter all the time that she is like Moses and Esther, and most of all that we are all adopted back into God’s family thru Jesus Christ. I remind her that the strongest vines have been grafted with new plant life. And that is how our family is, too. She grins when I tell her that!
I suspect that what awaits her in the afterlife will come as quite an unpleasant surprise.
Given what passes for her 'sense of ethics', extreme doubt obtains she believes in any afterlife. That she discovers that there is, indeed, one after all will be the first unpleasant surprise for her. Things will get exponentially more unpleasant thereafter...
I hope so!
But I'm afraid it'll take "The Second Coming" for this to occur.
Are you still killing your unborn?
Personally, I think that some of those who are most avidly pro-abortion are those who are suppressing the most guilt. In a twisted way, they see others having abortions as justification of what they did, which allows them to keep suppressing their guilt.
I really hope that it doesn’t take very many abortions to render this selfish girl completely sterile.
