First up, we have “Hailey”, a college student who has always wanted to be a doctor.
Via Life News:
And with the support of her parents and the encouragement of her college professors, she was on the fast track to going to medical school and fulfilling her lifelong dream.
But then a positive pregnancy test nearly dashed her dreams forever.
Afraid to tell her parents, friends, or even her boyfriend about her pregnancy, Hailey went to the one place where she knew she could find all the answers she needed without fear of judgment or discovery — the Internet. There she began an extensive search to find abortion clinics near the state university she attended.
Fortunately, Hailey discovered Online for Life instead — a pro-life nonprofit organization that uses innovative Internet technology to reach out online to abortion-determined women and help connect them with a local life-affirming pregnancy center where they can receive compassion and information to help them make a fully informed decision about the life of their unborn child.
Hailey called the number on the computer screen and made an appointment at a local life-affirming pregnancy center.
During her initial appointment, Hailey was compassionately educated on all aspects of her pregnancy and all of the options available to her. Yet, despite the love and kindness she was shown, Hailey could not yet commit to choosing life.
However, the uplifting words of the volunteers at the pregnancy continued to echo in Hailey’s mind long after the appointment. And after weeks of praying and hoping, the staff finally received an email from Hailey that contained the incredible news that she had decided to keep her baby!
Hailey then shared when she finally gathered the courage to tell her parents about her pregnancy, they took it much better than she anticipated, and although they were disappointed in this unexpected turn of events, the pregnancy appears to have brought them even closer together.
Hailey’s mother began calling and texting every day to check in on her daughter and unborn grandchild. Likewise, Hailey’s father surprised her with a show of love and support as he took steps to help her prepare for the baby.
Next up, Ann McElhinney (Producer, Gosnell Movie) reading an extract from the Grand Jury report on the crimes of the abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell.
And the grand finale:
Meet Emily Letts, a 25 year old counselor for the Cherry Hill Women’s Center. Emily decided she wanted “to share a positive message when she became pregnant and had an abortion in November. She said she did not feel guilt for getting the procedure because it was the right decision for her.”
Elizabeth Scalia mourns for both Emily and her baby.
My heart breaks for this young woman and her baby who are so clearly victims of a pervasive rhetoric full of untruths and the banality of real evil. She needs our prayers and our whole-hearted spiritual assistance. Evidenced before us is a mind seduced and under the power of nefarious propaganda that has told her to serve her own desires unto death — one that has encouraged her to soul-shredding idolatry while its promulgators serve only death and political campaign coffers. It is a mind owned by insipid platitudes, now at war with a heart that says, “bone of my bone, flesh of my flesh, my baby, my heart, myself.”
What this young woman now knows — what resonates so clearly in her assertion that if her house were afire, she would grab the sonogram of her extinguished baby, and run — is that when she consented to kill her baby, she killed a very real piece of herself.
More reactions from the pro-life community:
“Letts’s campaign to normalize the execution of a child lies to all of us,” said Live Action president Lila Rose in an email statement to Breitbart News.
Rose continued:She claims to film an abortion, but that is the one thing we don’t see. We don’t see the powerful suction machine ripping the developing embryo from the safe harbor of Letts’s uterus. We don’t see the child’s delicate arm and leg buds ripped apart by the force of the suction tube, or the child’s body parts floating afterward in a pool of blood and amniotic fluid in a medical receptacle. All we see is Letts’s smile, not her victim. In a society that religiously ignores the victim, we will never achieve lasting peace.
“Letts’s triumphant smile after her child has been torn apart by a suction tube is a grotesque testament to a society that has come to embrace the slaughter of a child as ‘empowerment,’” Rose added.
Kristan Hawkins, president of Students for Life of America (SFLA), told Breitbart News that while Letts set out to make what she called a positive abortion experience story, it doesn’t take long to conclude that her abortion was not a positive decision for her or her child.
First consider the part of her story before filming begins – how did this young woman end up alone and pregnant? With no help from the child’s father or any of her family members, Ms. Letts goes in for her abortion being supported by the medical team she is paying to abort her child. Of course they are supporting her – their paycheck is determined by offering women the “support” they need to make this lucrative decision. It is also nice that the abortion team had on their “camera faces” and that this thankfully appeared to be filmed in a clean facility – but that is not what every woman gets who goes in for an abortion. Just think of Kermit Gosnell – do you think he held any of the women’s hands as he aborted their children on his blood stained table?
Hawkins notes the irony of Letts’ statement at the end of the video, “I feel in awe that I can make a baby – I can make a life!”
“Yeah, she helped make a baby and then she paid an abortionist to kill it,” said Hawkins. “The fact that this young woman is so disconnected from her words to her actions is shocking to those of us who know we just watched a preborn baby girl or boy die.”
Matt Walsh: This is my positive abortion story!
When the ‘procedure’ is completed, Emily says “cool!” and is wheeled out of the room, childfree and grinning from ear to ear.
“I’m done! YAY!”
She laughs and celebrates as if she’d just gotten a tattoo, or her belly button pierced.
The video then jumps forward a few days, and treats us to Emily’s reflections on how the slaughter of her child has positively impacted her life. In perhaps the most bizarre and unsettling part of the entire bizarre and unsettling video, she says this:
“I feel in awe of the fact that I can make a baby. I can make a life. I knew what I was doing was right because it was right for me, and no one else.”
The last sentence perfectly encapsulates the entire philosophy of American ‘progressivism.’ I know what I’m doing is right, because it’s right for me. One day, I believe that phrase will be the epithet on the tombstone of modern culture.
I know that it is right — because it’s right for me. So succinct, so emblematic, so tragic.
But the first two sentences seem to be the words of a psychopath. She delights in the destruction of life, because it lets her know that life is possible. This sounds like dialogue from an episode of Dexter, not a thing that a real non-institutionalized person would actually say.
Lest you think that dear Emily represents the fringe of the abortion movement, consider that many mainstream leftwing blogs have seized on this video and passionately defended it. But, if you’re paying attention, you already know that this woman is not on the fringe, because there is no fringe. All abortion advocacy is extremism. It is impossible to be moderately in favor of abortion, just as it is impossible to be moderately opposed to it. Seeking a middle ground on abortion is like searching for a middle ground on slavery or genocide. It doesn’t exist, and those who wish to find it will inevitably end up in favor, and those in favor of murderous atrocities are always extremely in favor of murderous atrocities. Your acceptance — however moderate – of a deep and depraved evil, will color your soul in blackness, and send you barreling into a darkness that will utterly distort your moral compass, leading you to bow at the altar of the Culture of Death, where abortion is the highest sacrament.
