The face of abortion
Just read an article on WorldNetDaily, about a woman in the United Kingdom who, for some presumably good reason, got an abortion. Some time later, something "slipped out", which turned out to be a fragment of the head of her aborted child. She could see a bit of bone, covered by tissue. Eyes, nose and mouth clearly visible on a 4 centimeter face.
This blew her mind.
"I feel as if I'm going insane now", she said. Now she wants to have a funeral.
What blows my mind is how abortion has been so over-hyped, many of us just think of it as just another medical procedure. No big deal. Yet, when women are brought face-to-face with the reality of what they have done, their emotional distress may be unending. Of course she feels guilty-- it is baked right into our DNA to instinctively avoid killing our young. No telling what the long term consequences to this woman will be. Will she feel better about it in, say, 20 years?
How much emotional and spiritual damage is done to women, and society at large, by the millions of abortions performed each year? I think the least we can do it to raise awareness. Let's call it what this woman obviously realized too late: the destruction of human life.
If we could do that much-- call abortion what it is-- some tragic episodes as this might be avoided.
In the meantime, she is consulting a lawyer to decide what to do next.
No word on any pending legal action by the baby.
