Abortion does not empower women

By Tom Quiner

Facebook allows you to keep your finger on the pulse of the culture.

Here is an experience pro life advocate, Abby Johnson, recently had when addressing high school students, as recounted on her Facebook page:

“I spoke at a high school yesterday and was saddened by the amount of young women that had already bought the lie that “abortion empowers women.”

One of them boldly spoke up during the Q&A session and was giving me all of the prochoice talking points. I was replying with analogies and situations that broke down her way of thinking. She finally just leaned back in her chair and said, “Whatever. You just aren’t understanding my questions.”

I looked at her and replied, “I completely understand your questions. It’s just that you have never been challenged by someone like me, so you don’t know how to respond to the arguments that I am giving you.”

I was thankful that the rest of the students got to see that interaction. They need to understand that we can disagree on abortion in a calm way. We don’t have to yell.

We don’t have to call names. And by knowing scientific and medical reasons that back up our prolife argument, we can always back them into a place where they have no answer. Hopefully, they will then take what we said and really ponder our words…that’s how conversion happens.

Please join me this morning in praying for the young people who have had abortions, who support abortion or who are confused about abortion.

There is healing after abortion.” www.hopeafterabortion.com

    For anyone who thinks abortion empowers women, this video is also enlightening:


    Abortion doesn’t empower anyone. It’s death, plain and simple.

    Classic argumentation of the defeated. When your opponent’s position is superior to yours, try to discredit his “standing” on the subject.
