YOUNG Pro-Lifers are so awesome!

Pro Life protesters - young

The majority of our young people are Abortion Abolitionists!

Back in the 1990s, the 18-29-year-olds were the age group most supportive of unrestricted legal abortion. Nowadays, this group is more Pro-Life than their parents’ age group (30-49), though not as Pro-Life as their grandparents’ age group (50-64).

  • 2003: A Gallup poll found 79% of Americans between the ages of 13 and 17 believe abortion should be illegal or limited to only the rare rape-incest-life of mother exceptions.
  • 2008: A New York Times, CBS News, MTV sponsored poll found that 62% of Americans under 30 said abortion should be illegal or limited to only the rare rape-incest-life of mother exceptions.

Personally, I’m a almost-no-exceptions person on this issue.

LIFE: I know there are situations in which a pregnancy poses a clear and present danger to the mother’s life.  In those situations, I believe the OB/GYN should treat both patients aggressively, not just kill off the one who has no say in the matter.  I would support legal termination ONLY where the possibility of a live birth is NIL (ectopic pregnancy, for example).

RAPE: Two wrongs don’t make a right.Where else does anyone think that killing an innocent bystander/witness to a crime is justified or would/could/should make the victim of that crime feel better? And who supports killing the rapist himself? Anyone?

The only major study of pregnant rape victims ever done found that 75-85% of women who conceived as a result of rape chose life. I’ve also read personal testimony by women who regret choosing to abort for this reason. The most compelling quotation by a woman explained why she was having a harder time recovering from the abortion than from the rape. “I was a victim of the rapist, but I chose to kill my child.”

INCEST: writes:

The case against abortion of incest pregnancies is even stronger. Studies show that incest victims rarely ever voluntarily agree to an abortion. Instead of viewing the pregnancy as unwanted, the incest victim is more likely to see the pregnancy as a way out of the incestuous relationship because the birth of her child will expose the sexual activity. She is also likely to see in her pregnancy the hope of bearing a child with whom she can establish a true loving relationship, one far different than the exploitive relationship in which she has been trapped.

But while the incest victim may treasure her pregnancy because it offers her hope of release, and the hope of finding a nurturing love, her pregnancy is a threat to the exploiter. It is also a threat to the pathological secrecy which may envelop other members of the family who are afraid to acknowledge that the abuse is occurring. Because of this dual threat, the victim may be coerced into an unwanted abortion by both the abuser and other family members.

For example, Edith Young, a 12-year-old victim of incest impregnated by her stepfather, writes twenty-five years after the abortion of her child: “Throughout the years I have been depressed, suicidal, furious, outraged, lonely, and have felt a sense of loss… The abortion which was to ‘be in my best interest’ just has not been. As far as I can tell, it only ‘saved their reputations,’ ‘solved their problems,’ and ‘allowed their lives to go merrily on.’… My daughter, how I miss her so. I miss her regardless of the reason for her conception.”

    Many of the thousands of people who gathered outside Planned Parenthood facilities this weekend said they came to do spiritual warfare against the devil. A few in the Detroit area got a clearer encounter than others when Satanists arrived and put on a macabre, baby-mocking demonstration.


  3. You saw the recent story ( about the bright flash of light that occurs at the moment of conception?

    Human life begins in bright flash of light as a sperm meets an egg, scientists have shown for the first time, after capturing the astonishing ‘fireworks’ on film.

    An explosion of tiny sparks erupts from the egg at the exact moment of conception.

    Wow!!!!! I think this gives credence to the only theory re: how the image on the Turin Shroud was made that ever seemed plausible to me. It speculates that at the moment Jesus resurrected into His now glorified, eternal body, there was a huge release of energy that marked the cloth.
