Abortion is just part of motherhood

Don’t think so? Then you must be an extremist, that’s always the meme of the Left.

Pro-Abortion Author Says Abortion is Normal & “Part of Being a Mother”

by Sarah Zagorski | Washington, DC | LifeNews.com | 10/30/14

Earlier this month, The Huffington Post published an excerpt of Katha Pollitt’s new book, “Pro: Reclaiming Abortion Rights.” The excerpt is titled “The Abortion Conversation We Need to Have” and starts with Pollitt”s statement that abortion “is a common, even normal, event in the reproductive lives of women.”

Then Pollitt attempts to convince her readers that abortion can be moral. She writes: “We need to see abortion as an urgent practical decision that is just as moral as the decision to have a child — indeed, sometimes more moral.

Pro-choicers often say no one is “pro-abortion,” but what is so virtuous about adding another child to the ones you’re already overwhelmed by? Why do we make young women feel guilty for wanting to feel ready for motherhood before they have a baby? Isn’t it a good thing that women think carefully about what it means to bring a child into this world — what, for example, it means to the children she already has? We tend to think of abortion as anti-child and anti- motherhood.

In media iconography, it’s the fetus versus the coat hanger: that is, abortion kills an “unborn baby,” but banning it makes women injure themselves. Actually, abortion is part of being a mother and of caring for children, because part of caring for children is knowing when it’s not a good idea to bring them into the world.” (Emphasis added)

“We need to talk about ending a pregnancy as a common, even normal, event in the reproductive lives of women — and not just modern American women either,” Pollitt said.

It’s moral and virtuous. Obviously, her biggest problem is those of us who don’t accept the Planned Parenthood paradigm. You know, who think life is the principle to stand on.

As the article points out, she is not only at odds with pro-lifers but some pro-abortion intelligentsia as well.

“Fetuses aren’t selective like that. They don’t qualify as human life only if they’re intended to be born.” — Elizabeth Williams in Salon.

One can only hope that in 2014 so many of the Liberals’ specious arguments and talking points can be ostracized, like the candidate getting booed for “war on women” Imagine? Maybe this rhetoric will become worn out, too.

Apparently the pro-abortion rationale has not reached that point, yet. (they still use them) “Normal” should have a hard time selling. “Abortion is part of being a mother and of caring for children.” Well, I hope we might have at least reached the saturation level.

    OMG! This woman is NUTS!!! Well doggone it. If a woman wants to be responsible and not have kids, then use birth control or abstinence. Why make the baby pay for the mother’s irresponsibility?

    This is about as convoluted as one can get.

      Thanks Pepp, for commenting. Yea its wacky but shouldn’t stun us. They’ve been working on it.. But she has a book pushing this stuff I guess. It only gets worse. This one takes the abortion cake of the decade. Surprised she isn’t running for office. PP would love her. Wanna bet the book ends up on mandatory reading?

        Bull, I’m surprised she isn’t running for office. Yeah, this one sure does take the cake. OMG, to think that book would be mandatory reading makes me shudder but with these socialist public schools u may be right

          Pepp well, at least you know it will be stocked by PP which is about the same thing as PS’s.

          I’ve been seeing the campaign ads that speaking out against PP is taboo, you know. Incredible.
