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.

Very sad. Just what did she think she was doing in the first place? Maybe the question should be, "Did she think?" I'm afraid many do not. She should consider consulting with someone in the clergy so she can accept her part in what she did and have a chance at surviving those 20 years.

Nice place you have here, sir. Dropped in from Louisiana Conservative's place.

well, actually its not that bad really. JEWS KILLED OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST! But they're our friends. Anyone taking bets on how long it'll be before they make homosexuality and abortion acceptable? I'll bet 5 dollars on within 50 years.

I am not understanding your comments, Our lord was a Jew that was fully aware of what was headed for him, This death was not to be morned but to be celibrated it made Christ a Martyr and us christians.
Had the Crusifiction never taken place, you would have never known him.

Since we look at this through a Christian View, in the end God the Father will pass Judgement on all to include you.
Abortion is a serious thing being that the woman had seen a visible face she had a partial birth abortion.
She will live with that memory the rest of her life and justly so.

Christianity will die out like Roman gods did, and Norse gods, and Greek gods, and paganism... what's to say that there's more truth to Christianity than there was to all the religions of the world that have been forgotten?
