I wish my mother had aborted me
The Guardian ^ | 8/15/2012 | Lynn Beisner

Posted on 08/15/2012 10:35:00 AM PDT by mojito

If there is one thing that anti-choice activists do that makes me see red, it is when they parade out their poster children: men, women and children who were "targeted for abortion". They tell us "these people would not be alive today if abortion had been legal or if their mothers had made a different choice".

[....]

The narrative that anti-choice crusaders are telling is powerful, moving, and best of all it has a happy ending. It makes the woman who carries to term a hero, and for narrative purposes it hides her maternal failing. We cannot argue against heroic, redemptive, happy-ending fairytales using cold statistics. If we want to keep our reproductive rights, we must be willing to tell our stories, to be willing and able to say, "I love my life, but I wish my mother had aborted me."

An abortion would have absolutely been better for my mother. An abortion would have made it more likely that she would finish high school and get a college education. At college in the late 1960s, it seems likely she would have found feminism or psychology or something that would have helped her overcome her childhood trauma and pick better partners. She would have been better prepared when she had children. If nothing else, getting an abortion would have saved her from plunging into poverty. She likely would have stayed in the same socioeconomic strata as her parents and grandparents who were professors. I wish she had aborted me because I love her and want what is best for her.

Abortion would have been a better option for me. If you believe what reproductive scientists tell us, that I was nothing more than a conglomeration of cells, then there was nothing lost.

Sometimes the left can still shock me by the depths of their utter depravity.

This is one of those times.

Sounds like they need to be committed.

This is something I’ve asked pro-aborts for years. “If you could have, would you have supported your mother’s desire to abort you?” I guess I finally have my answer.

If you truly believe that way, then put a gun to your head and pull the damn trigger.

But no, you have to be a whiney, ignorant coward instead. If you feel you are a "useless eater" then end it....for the sake of humanity!

“Before the age of 14, I had never been to a sleepover, been allowed to talk to a friend on the phone, eaten in a restaurant, watched a television show, listened to the radio, read a non-Christian book, or even worn a pair of jeans.”

Oh, the horror!

Well MIZZ Beisner you can always perform a post-birth abortion on yourself at any time. I promise we won’t stop you.

Living with the guilt makes them crazy. One clear moment is what they fear the most. Much better to be a lunatic.

It never fails. When these people hit bottom, they get out their shovels and start digging.

Agreed, life is work, getting ready for work, hate job, budgets, getting laid off, business failures, failed marriages, finally turn to booze, some relief.

Barack - Is that you? For once - I agree with you. I wish you were aborted too.

But... You mother did finish college and became a feminist. Don’t you remember? She took her clothes off and posed in the nude. Became a communist and all that stuff.

"Abortion would have been a better option for me."

If you truly believe that way, then put a gun to your head and pull the damn trigger.

Even that would be the coward's way out - abortion means death by dismemberment or chemical scalding.
