Mom Changes Mind About Abortion After Newtown Shooting 

The school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut was a terrible tragedy that took the lives of two dozen children and school officials. However, the tragedy has helped millions of Americans foster a greater appreciation for children and human life.

Steve Rupp, Vice President of Missouri Right to Life, shares the following story of how it made such a monumental impact on one mother considering an abortion that she changed her mind:

With the horrid news from Connecticut–that is like an arrow piercing America’s heart–comes a story of tragedy turned triumphant.

My young nephew was running his small restaurant in Des Moines earlier this week when one of his employees came in to the store and asked if she could get her paycheck a little early. While he was in the office cutting her check, she sat at one of the WiFi computers to wait. On the screen, the story of the school shootings was being broadcast. The young lady started sobbing uncontrollably.

My nephew came out to console her and brought her back into his office to let her compose herself when she told him, “I needed my paycheck early because I have an appointment at Planned Parenthood this afternoon to have an abortion.” And then she said, “After seeing all of those innocent young children dying and all of those mothers who have had their children taken from them, I can’t go through with this abortion!”

Once again, I want to speak to you about trying to interpret who I am.

I do not appreciate these kinds of statements being made about me, as if they come from my own voice.

I respect all human life, even the mothers in those very difficult situations.

Where I will make a distinction is this:  The women have a brain to think and reason, and they also have the ability to make a choice.

The unborn have no voice whatsoever.

In effect these woman who choose to abort, are putting themselves in the place of God or a supreme being.

"Having my way":  Please consult me the next time before you choose to make such a callous remark about my thouught process and, make assumptions,  in effect TELLING  LIES.

I will always tell you the truth.

Thank you, roma

How sad for you that you can't tell the difference between an embryo and a living breathing born child.


I respect human life.  I would never have an abortion unless my life was endangered.

I could say to you that you only respect unborn life and not the lives born women who, if you had your way, could die being forced to maintain pregnancies that endanger their lives.

I don't know.

I didn't appreciate your statement that it was sad that I didn't respect the dignity of all human life.

If you don't want me interpreting your feelings on issues, I'm happy to agree not to do so provided you give me the same courtesy.

Please do not insult my friends, then, to begin with.

They too have a voice, and equally,   brains to think.

I would appreciate you thinking well before you fire back so rapidly, just who you are talking to.

Thank you, roma
