Abortion twits… November 9, 2010

Posted by Tantumblogo in Abortion, General Catholic, sadness, scandals, sickness, Society.

..errrr, twittering.  It’s all the rage nowadays, a very hot topic on Twitter.  Apparently, pro-aborts feel that making some statement about being proud about one’s abortion in 140 characters or less is sure to win the culture war finally and definitively in favor of abortion, a sort of technological leap beyond ultrasounds (funny that a pro-abort would sound hostile towards ultrasounds, I thought ultrasounds provided knowledge about the infant, and knowledge is power, and feminists/pro-aborts are all about empowering women, so…….anyways).  CNN even did a story on the topic.   So, what are those who have had abortions saying?  Let’s see:

Almost half my life ago, #ihadanabortion. I’m not sorry. I’ve never been sorry. I will never be sorry. Just very, very grateful.

Yep, #IHADANABORTION.. more than one, now that I am ready I am now 7 months pregnant w/ my 2nd child…my body, my decision!

Those who are ANTI-choice shd B glad #ihadanabortion. I went on to finish college, support myself, marry … have 2 honor students. Nice, huh?

“Why is saying #ihadanabortion ‘provocative?’ I had my wisdom teeth out. Is that needlessly provocative? Or ‘i had a baby at 15?’No?”

Ahem…..well, I suppose it is difficult to be artful in 140 characters or less, but are such statements really likely to swing the culture from its current, predominant, and long term pro-life trend towards being in favor of unconstrained abortions?   How do these statements support the major themes of the pro-abort mentality?  To me, these statements sound prideful….”I am sooo proud I had my child violently removed from my body!”  Is this the mentality that pro-aborts want to project?  Do they really want to trivialize it, by comparing it to a wisdom tooth extraction?  It’s hard to see how that supports the claim that abortion is a terribly difficult choice for any woman to make.  None of the above statements seem to corroborate that common pro-abort claim.  And I thought that abortion was something intensely personal?  We always hear pro-aborts claiming that an abortion involves “no one but a woman and her doctor” (leaving untold numbers of would-be fathers likely devastated).  How is sounding “loud and proud” about one’s abortion going to further that major pro-abort theme.

I, of course, am very biased, being completely, 100% dedicated to the Church’s doctrine on the subject, but don’t these “twitters” sound horribly shallow?  Do they not convey a certain, frighteningly blase attitude regarding the death of their child?  My wife will be aghast when she reads this, it would be utterly unthinkable for her to harm one of her children in this manner.  As a father, I cannot fathom it, either, if we lost a child for any reason I would be devastated, and I certainly would not be advertising the fact.  I know many women are devastated by abortion, those involved Silent No More and other groups, but these twits (there I go again) twitterers seem rather different.  These “twitterers” seem to be allowing their pro-abort politics dominate their empathy, love, and common sense.  I wonder if this campaign may not completely backfire, and convey the message that many fanatic pro-aborts (some folks have tracked down some of these twitterers, and a number are involved in the abortion industry) are painfully narcissistic and shallow and seemingly very low on empathy for the life they chose to end?

The shallow howls of feral feminihilists: full of sound and fury signifying nothing.

When a woman willingly has an abortion she loses a lot more than her baby.

I agree, Father. She loses her own humanity. It’s obvious in their callous statements.

Abortion has always been a sort of private affair – women go to places they hope nobody will recognize them at, have the ‘procedure’ performed (kill their baby), and pretend nothing happened. Then if you talk about abortion, they say you shouldn’t talk politics, as if it is a political discussion.
I suspect these twits are to get abortions in public, kinda like other things once private and personal – be proud of your abortion. One example – people seem comfortable asking if I’ve been ‘fixed’, as if I’ve been broken before.

I see this hurting their families, jobs, and friends. (If you don’t care about your own child, why would you care about other children, husband/wife, job, friends, etc)
