Interesting story. One woman’s journey from pro-choice to pro-life. I note it took her years, which sounds reasonable.
Another interesting thing is the lack of freedom of information on the pro-choice side. Years ago I called pro-life orgs and pro-choice orgs asking for information about the development of the baby in utero. The pro-choice org said and did nothing. The pro-life one promptly mailed a package filled with pamphlets. It is utterly absurd to claim to support a woman in her “choice,” except when she is wondering about what is growing inside her. Which might well include the vast majority of women.
Over the years I’d heard many pro-lifers say things along the lines of, “If you’re engaging in the act that creates babies, you might create a baby; if you are absolutely certain that you’re not ready to have a baby, avoid the act that creates babies.” The pro-choice movement dismissed such statements, often sneeringly, as being overly simplistic and even oppressive. Yet is it not true? Now that I had taken a look under the hood of the pro-choice worldview, I came to see this as yet another example of pro-lifers respecting women enough to tell them hard truths that they may not want to hear, but need to hear. And far from blowing women off with pat answers, as I had always imagined pro-lifers did, when I took a closer look at that movement I found it to be quite realistic about the complexities of life, and surprisingly understanding that things don’t always work out the way they’re supposed to.
