Abortions during the holidays

I love this time of year! The Holidays are a time of looking back and being thankful for what we have and for the one dear to our hearts. This is also the time of year that can be hard for people who have lost someone close to them or are away from family. It's very difficult for women who have had abortions during this time to as well.

As I see women go into the clinics near the holidays especially Thanksgiving and Christmas, my heart goes out to them. How sad it must be to end a pregnancy during the time of year we celebrate life with those we love. I think of how these girls will feel many Christmases from now when the joyous times brings back the memories of their abortions. How they will feel when they see their children opening up gifts under the tree. Will they think about the one that didn't get a chance to have Christmas? I really feel sorry for these women who go through this every year and am thankful I get the chance to see many wonderful Christmases with my little one. Hopefully, there will be some women who's minds will change and there will be more babies in this world who will have a chance to celebrate the most wonderful time of the year!

I read a post the other day (Goodbye Princess. And Thank You. ) from a man who confronted a group of bullies like you and spoke his mind about the scumsucking stuff you do to make vulnerable women feel bad on the worst day of their lives. It made me think of you, and it wasn't a pleasant memory: self-satisfied bullies really are disgusting.

Only the testimonials that fit into Yonmei's preconceived ideology are valid to her. The story Heather shared about how the sidewalk counselors did NOT bully her, how they connected her with the resources she needed to leave the women's shelter and be a good mother to her baby, is ignored in favor of a stereotype in which all sidewalk counselors are religious "zealots" yelling at people "on God's behalf."

Heather, although it has nothing really to do with pro-life work, I'm curious how you navigate the holidays as an atheist. Of course, the major themes of this time of year-- joy, thankfulness, giving-- are not necessarily confined to Christians celebrating Christmas.

The stories Heather shares every week about how she and her pals bully vulnerable women, calling insults and hostile remarks to them, are perfectly valid testimony about the kind of person Heather is: a self-satisfied nasty bully of the kind that likes to make vulnerable people cry.

I read the same posts you did. I saw no bullying or name calling, just offerings of hope and pleas of nonviolence.

Yonmei said...

Nulono, earlier discussions with you already made clear that you like Heather's accounts of bullying and see no problem hurting vulnerable women.

I read Heather's posts and saw no mention of bullying, just offerings of hope and pleas of nonviolence.

That says you're a bully, Nulono. You probably kill babies, too.

What?

Nulono said: What?

You consider that kind of message to be "offerings of hope and pleas of nonviolence" so there you go: You kill babies. Read that the way you read Heather's messages.

Nulono said...

Sidewalk counselors offer assistance and plead with expectant mothers to not kill their unborn children. I would consider that a plea of nonviolence.
