I just read a journal from woman who is proud that she protested outside an abortion clinic and is planning on doing it again. I just don't understand what people like that think they are accomplishing other than making THEMSELVES feel better.
Wouldn't your time be better spent out there doing something to fix the issues that lead to abortion in the first place- things such as abuse, drug & alcohol addiction, poor parenting, lack of education, unemployment, poverty and so on?
Standing there holding a sign stating how wrong you think it is and making other women feel like shite is not accomplishing anything- regardless of what you think...
When I was in college, I had an abortion. I had to cross a picket line. Thankfully, I had friends who escorted me. It was scary. The scariest thing was the look of anger and hatred on the faces of those picketing. They had no idea why I was there. They didn't know the circumstances behind my unwanted pregnancy. They knew nothing about me. They were scary, ugly people.
You believe that abortion is taking a life? Had you prevented me from aborting that pregnancy back then, you would have effectively ended two lives. I would have killed myself. I was that desperate. You aren't helping anyone by picketing, except your own sense of self-righteousness.
