This is my response to Elite Daily's post on a viral video portraying a woman replying to some pro-lifers from Abort 67 standing outside an abortion clinic in London, England.
As for the female passerby I obviously disagree with everything she said except for one thing. This is a personal opinion but I have never been fond of how some pro-life people rely on graphic images to get their point across. Yes, I get it shakes people up, makes them think but personally wether I am pro-life or pro-choice, seeing a dead, dismembered baby is not going to get me to want to get involved in any way. I know the pictures are the truth and perhaps can be useful when talking to extremist pro-choice people but generally I don't approve of them. Total turn off. But hey, to each his own!
Now as to the passerby, I am rather struck that she is still pro-choice while being pregnant. I know a lot of women are pro-choice even with children but honestly in my mind, I feel like once you experience the immense joy and amazingness of carrying a life inside of you, you wouldn't be able to remotely think of abortion and be ok with it. But then again I can't personally testify to this as I have never been pregnant.
Now, of course this woman had to bring up the rape issue. Rape and being molested is pretty much her only argument for abortion during her whole rant. Sorry to burst your bubble lady but, Only ONE PERCENT of abortions occur due to rape. And if you still believe abortion should be ok in cases of rape well I believe an innocent child shouldn't have to pay for his/her father's crime. Period. And on a side note, abortion due to rape is just adding violence onto violence. Thus not solving the problem whatsoever.
The passerby continuously says "You don't know why people are doing what they're doing," making into some sort of excuse for abortion. Um excuse me, regardless of the reason, killing an innocent unborn child is not ok. Nothing, literally, nothing justifies this. You can give me 100 reasons to a justify abortion and I will give you 150 rational reasons as to why abortion was never, never is and never ever ever ever will be ok.
She also brings up a baby who died in a bin and said the mother most likely had to take that choice because of people like us pro-lifers making her feel a certain way and then basically says it would have been better for her to have an abortion. WHAT!? Actually there's no better here. Both are horrible. A baby dying in a bin is inhuman and horrible and a baby being ripped apart in the womb is inhuman and horrible. Neither is good, ok, better, wonderful, humane, smart and I could keep going. Wrong and tragic is the only word to use here.
To be honest, I have no idea about what she's talking about when she brings up location and "helping kids." Maybe its her accent, but there really wasn't any part of her little speech that I understood.
Anyways, I would keep ranting but it would probably turn into a book on why abortion is wrong and blah blah blah and God knows there are already a ton of those. For those who read this post, you're awesome, thank you. If I made any mistakes in defending the pro-life side here please tell me, I'm not (yet) a pro-life genius. Just a really opinionated French girl.
