Toni Braxton: abortion made me sad way too long

Posted in Abortion Regret, Hollywood with tags , , , , , on January 31, 2016 by saynsumthn

In an interview with Toni Braxton the singer/actress talked briefly to Insider about her abortion, telling them the abortion made her sad and she had to forgive herself for having it.

Insider Toni Braxton abortion

The seven-time Grammy winner was speaking with Insider about the Lifetime movie she produced about her own life, “Toni Braxton: Unbreak My Heart,” when she was asked about the biggest thing she had to forgive herself for.

Her response was as follows:

    “I had to forgive myself for the abortion. Here it is years later and I had to forgive myself for that moment. And, it stunned me and it almost corrupt my energy and made it – I’m not going to say less positive- it just made it sad way too long.”

The abortion lobby likes to try and convince their constituents that women do not regret abortion. Sadly, the longer women buy into this lie, the longer their pain lingers. Women who have had abortions and are now pro-life will tell you that as Braxton admits, there is a pain associated with the loss of a child through abortion.

Tragically, in her memoir “Unbreak My Heart Braxton implies that she had the abortion in part because the pregnancy was inconvenient.

Braxton BookAs was previously reported on Live Action News, Braxton suffered from great guilt after her abortion and years later when her son was diagnosed with autism her guilt intensified.

She writes:

    “I thought it was because of the abortion, God was punishing me.”

    “I have sometimes wondered whether God was punishing me for the abortion I had years ago by allowing my son to have autism. Or by giving me so many health issues.”

Live Action News writer, Christina Marie Bennett addressed the issue of abortion regret when she wrote this in a previous piece:

“In reality, we know abortion isn’t just a emotionally painless, all around feel good decision. If that was the case, post abortion groups like Rachel’s Vineyard, Silent No More Awareness, and Forgiven & Set Free (all of which you can find online) wouldn’t exist.”

Post abortive pro-life activist Michele Herzog has been outspoken about what women who have abortions really feel, “Women know that there is a child growing inside a womb, the after-effects of abortion are truly destroying and devastating our society.

Years after her abortion, Braxton now describes herself as on her Facebook page as “Mother First!”

Abortion patient: Planned Parenthood sucked baby out with vacuum as medical waste

Posted in Abortion Regret with tags , , , , , , , , , on November 11, 2015 by saynsumthn

A woman who said she was pressured into an abortion by her boyfriend, has uploaded a message of abortion regret, accusing Planned Parenthood of sucking out her child with a vacuum, calling it medial waste. The idea of regret from abortion is often denied by those who profit from killing preborn children in the womb.

Kimberly abortion regret

In the video, the woman who identifies herself as Kimberly begins by saying she was told as a teen she would be unable to get pregnant. Kimberly says that despite what she was told, she found herself pregnant anyway. She then recounted her boyfriend’s reaction when she told him,

    “He told me he was going to push me down the stairs, that he hated me. Well, he would hate me if I kept the baby.

Feeling emotionally and financially incapable to care for a child, Kimberly said she made her way to a Planned Parenthood for the abortion. The 20-year-old, who said she never believed “abortion is for me” noted that she felt pressured into the procedure. Despite the pressure and threats from her boyfriend, Planned Parenthood was more than eager to take her money.

At 8 weeks, Kimberly received her state required ultra sound and then waited the required 24-hours to receive the abortion. Even at this point, as she awaited the procedure, she was very ambivalent recounting how the staff at Planned Parenthood repeatedly entered her room until she finally relented and had the abortion.

When I got there I was still unsure about it but I decided to go through with it,” she states in the video. “They had to come back like three times and ask me before I did it. I did it and the whole experience was very traumatic. I remember laying there and they injected me with the drugs. It happened so fast I couldn’t really change my mind about it. I felt like it was the best thing to do for me. But, I feel differently now. I honestly feel like it was the worst mistake I ever made in my life.”

Listening to Kimberly you get a sense that this abortion has so impacted her that she will live with regret for the rest of her life.

“It was honestly very traumatic for me. I think it is the worst mistake I’ve ever made in my life. And, I know I am going to think about this every day and I wish more than anything I wouldn’t have done it. I feel like when I have kids in the future I’m still going to think about this,” she says.

“I know that I thought before it was always a woman’s choice, But, after I went through the experience and I experienced the guilt that I feel now, I think it’s completely wrong. I would never suggest to a woman to do it – EVER!” she states.

It is at this point, that Kimberly turns her attention to exactly what Planned Parenthood did.

    “I had life inside of me and they sucked it out with a vacuum – and it was medical waste. It was the worst mistake I ever made in my life…I’m not even sure how I going to live with the guilt that I did for the rest of my life…

    “I wish more than anything that I wouldn’t have gotten an abortion…I wish I wouldn’t have let other people influence me to do it. I don’t think any woman should do it, I think it’s completely wrong..” Kimberly regretfully adds.

Kimberly tells her over three hundred thousand viewers that a preborn child has a heartbeat at 5 weeks,

    I mean how do you define if a person is dead or alive, by the heartbeat.”

    “If you’re thinking about doing it [abortion] please please consider adoption…there is always a way.”

How one abortion owner plans to turn lemons into lemon aid by using suction machines as show and tell

REPUBLISHED FROM LIFE DYNAMICS BLOG

A Texas abortion owner wants to use the abortion suction machines at her closed facility for “show and tell” to reduce what she calls “abortion stigma.”

Amy Hagstrom Miller abortion suction machine show tell 2

Texas has been the site where several abortion clinics have closed because they could not comply with state law that requires abortion facilities comply with the minimum health and safety standards adopted by the State for ambulatory surgical centers, and that abortionists have admitting privileges in a local hospital near an abortion clinic.

hosp_priv

The radical pro-abortion blog, RH Reality Check spoke to Amy Hagstrom Miller who operates several abortion clinics in Texas under the name Whole Woman’s Health.

Now that pro-life legislation is closing many abortion facilities in the state, Hagstrom Miller has come up with a new scheme to remain “relevant” and “shift abortion stigma,” a program she calls SHIFT.

Get a free prolife pin

Shift, according to Hagstrom Miller, is a group “working to strategically shift the stigma around abortion in our culture,” and “committed to fostering open and honest conversations, lifting up all communities, and advocating for reproductive freedom.

To accomplish this goal, the abortion owner has created a non profit she will operate from her now closed Austin facility called, ChoiceWorks, which she describes as “working to strategically shift the stigma around abortion in our culture.”

Amy Hagstrom Miller see fetus abortion

The idea is to use the closed death camp as a “kind of an Abortion University” where Hagstrom Miller will teach an “Abortion 101” workshop.

Maybe the clinic owner will use her Beaumont center in this “Abortion University” workshop of sorts as well.

A 2013, state inspectors found that Whole Woman’s Health Beamont clinic failed to have some of the same life-saving tools on site that convicted abortionist Kermit Gosnell was cited for in Pennsylvania.

Hagstrom Miller told RH Reality Check that she always fantasize about what it would look like if abortion care were treated as, “legitimate in women’s health care, just like miscarriage management or delivery?”

    Some of our programs are inviting people to come into the clinic—this, where we’re talking, is one of those clinics. We have a safe space where we kind of re-enact a day in the life of a clinic for not just the media, but our allies. We’ll walk through, literally from the phone call all the way through the paperwork, ultrasound, and counseling, so people can see how regulations actually affect the service, experientially. But then we could also have this interaction where people can, in a safe place, say, “But what is that you’re seeing in the ultrasound? What happens in the ultrasound? Can I see the instruments?” And they’ll say things like, “Oh my goodness, there aren’t any sharp instruments,” or “Can I see the fetal tissue?” or whatever. A safe place where we can do education about what actually happens.”

Pro-lifers have been educating the public on what an abortion looks like for years.

ABORTION IS GOOD?

Good Women Have Abortions

The abortion chain operator told the pro-choice blog that she wants society to think of abortion as good.

Nobody’s talking about abortion as though it’s a good in our society, or as though good women would have an abortion. I had this banner outside Whole Woman’s Health for years that said, “Good women have abortions.” People flipped out,” Hagstrom Miller said.

Killing babies is good in our society?

Did we mention www.100abortionpictures.com?

How about www.safeandlegal.com where Life Dynamics lists the names of the women killed from legal abortion?

Or….www.childpredators.com which documents how pedophiles use abortion to cover child sexual abuse?

What about the many women who regret their abortions?

Hagstrom Miller said that her new abortion adventure is her way of “turning lemons into lemonade.”

I have, as it turns out, a bunch of suction machines I don’t know what to do with. So if they can become used for show and tell? Awesome,” she stated.

You cannot make this stuff up.

As Mark Crutcher, president of Life Dynamics has said many times, the pro-choice mindset comes from mental illness.

Listen to him explain this on a recent Life Talk TV show.

______________________________________________

END LIFE DYNAMICS:

Despite the fact that one of Amy Hagstrom Miller’s own abortion facilities has been cited for safety violations, Hagstroim Miller said this:

    “The bad provider thing is rough. How can we talk about that? Whenever I see the word “access,” I don’t want access to abortion, I want access to quality abortion. I host little debates within the field: Is any abortion a good abortion? I don’t think so. I want us to have those ethical debates.”

The Texas abortion chain owner does subscribe to the ideology that women who have abortions need to talk about them:

    “People say, “People just need to tell their abortion stories,” and I’m like, no they fucking don’t. I mean, I love when they do. But we can’t make shifting the movement that person’s burden. That’s not her fucking job. She doesn’t owe that to us. So I get super animated about this, “Oh we just need to have more patients tell their stories,” you know? No we don’t! We have providers that don’t talk about what they do.”

But she added that she wants men to talk about how abortion benefits them,”Because I want a frame where we can talk about how men benefit from abortion.”

She concluded by stating all the things she believed abortion providers were afriad to be asked about:

    “So that we don’t leave what my friend Charlotte Taft calls the “crumbs at the picnic.” We have a picnic and we don’t clean up and anti-choicers grab every little crumb. Abortion, money! Ooh, “late-term” abortion! Fetal pain! Oh, sex-selection! I could make a list of all the things that all of us are terrified of being asked about. That’s totally by design.”

UPDATE: Since publishing this blog, Jessica’s mom has contacted Saynsumthn, she has stated that she has not changed her opinions on abortion as stated originally. Saynsumthn reported what Jessica said in her public interview but in fairness is adding this disclaimer along with the mother’s comments (below) to the post.

A woman whose abortion at 23 weeks landed her in the hospital spoke out recently about her regret and the harm her decision has cost her.

Jessica D. was interviewed by Al Kresta along with pro-life advocate Lynn Mills. Jessica met Mills after she saw a comment Mills posted on this blog.

The hour long interview was emotional and full of details which may disturb some readers, be warned.

BACKGROUND

Jessica was married and had a disabled child when, in February of 2014 she and her husband made the decision to have an abortion. She said that when she found out she was pregnant- she was panicked.

“When you’re in panic mode you don’t think – you don’t have emotions to fix things,” she told Al Kresta.

Jessica recounted how her mom had worked for Planned Parenthood years before she decided to have her abortion.

She thought her mom, who remained relatively silent when she contemplated the decision to have an abortion, was supportive.

But after she had the second trimester procedure Jessica said that her mom shocked her by asking why she did not place the child for adoption instead.

“I grew up in a very pro-choice home. We were not very religious and pro-lifers were crazy – that lie and nothing is the truth and they stretch the truth and you can’t trust it
,” Jessica said.

Although Jessica mentioned her pregnancy to her mom who was not employed by Planned Parenthood at the time, she was not involved in her ultimate decision to have the abortion.

“After I had the procedure and she knew all along, she said to me on the phone: Why didn’t you just give it up for adoption? And, to hear my mom say that was the most heartbreaking thing she said because my mom was always for abortion and women’s rights.”

THE ABORTION

In February of 2014, Jessica went to the offices of abortionist Jacob Kalo who set up an appointment for her to see another abortionist, in Lathrup Village, his name was Reginald Sharpe.

ReginaldSharpe-SummitMedicalCenter03082013-120x160

Jessica was 23 weeks and 5 days along just under the 24 week limit in Michigan.

Jessica told Kresta that she was not given any counseling by the abortion clinic.

It was just a price given,” she stated.

“He said right then it would be $4000.00 the week before the 27th. And we didn’t have the full amount and he said it goes up- the longer you wait the higher it is.”

Jessica said the abortionist then gave her advice on how to get a second mortgage on her house or car.

“He said if I get past 24 weeks he would refer me to go to New York.”

babyat20weeks

Jessica said she was not shown any fetal development pictures as well.

Michigan state law requires an informed consent before an abortion can be performed. In most cases abortion minded women would be able to review informed consent documents online prior to the procedure. But in Jessica’s case, even though Planned Parenthood did not perform the abortion, she was able to go to them to review the informed consent package.

“When I went for my 24 hour consent form at Planned Parenthood, they said ‘now you don’t have to open this packet. This is for the pro-lifers and this isn’t accurate.’ And so, even looking at that I didn’t know what to trust.”

According to Michigan law, the following documents are required to be given to a woman seeking an abortion at least 24 hours prior to the abortion procedure:

    A written summary of the abortion procedure she will undergo.
    Depictions, illustrations or photographs of fetal development corresponding to the gestational age nearest the probable gestational age of the woman’s fetus.
    Prenatal care information
    Parenting information

24 week baby LARA

THE PROCEDURE

Jessica said the abortion procedure was unlike anything the clinics advertise online. She called the treatment “poor at best.”

“Its like you’re not even human,” she stated.

“It’s so bad I was put into the room and into stirrups and no clothes and nothing covering and I waited for about an hour and a half. There is no dignity in it and it’s painful. It’s like you’re not even there.”

The abortion was a two day procedure.

DAY ONE:

The first day, Jessica said that she received an injection of digoxin and her overall visit to the clinic lasted about twenty minutes.

Digoxin is a drug injected into an unborn baby to cause his or her heart to stop in preparation for what amounts to a stillborn birth.

It was very painful, Jessica reiterated.

“The first day I was told there would be mild cramping. And, you actually go into labor. When they send you home…I had my son natural and this was much worse.”

Because the pain was so acute, Jessica’s husband called the abortion clinic’s emergency number and they told her under no circumstances to go to the emergency room.

DAY TWO

Jessica said that on day two she was not given any pain medication for the procedure.

I was told I would have medications and fluids…I was expecting sedation and medication,” she said.

She recalls that after forty-five minutes the abortionist had to stop to call 911 due to a perforated uterus and massive blood loss.

When he did perforate my uterus, I had sat up,” she said.

What happened next will remain ingrained in Jessica’s mind forever.

She continues, “And I saw this red bucket on the floor and – uh – what I saw was just…” at that point in the interview Jessica could not say it, but Mills explained that what Jessica saw was her dismembered baby.

It was so painful,” she said.

“It was pulling- he was pulling.”

Jessica told Kresta that while she lay there bleeding she felt that it would be better if she would just die.

According to Jessica, parts of her almost 24 week unborn child had gone outside the perforation and the abortionist was having difficulty removing them. She told Mills earlier that the abortionist had been training another doctor to do the later term procedure that day.

While Jessica waited for the emergency responders, she said the doctor changed his clothes and “Swiffered and cleaned up. Then, they placed an IV for the EMS people and kind of scrambled around.” She remained unclothed during this time, she stated.

WOmanCare 911

Mills sent Saynsumthn a transcript of the February 28, 2014 911 call were abortionists Reginald Sharpe tells the dispatcher they need to come right away because, “she has a hole and she’s bleeding.”

You can read that here.

According to Mills, after the EMS techs arrived, the abortionist would not allow them to take her out the front door. She was removed out the back door which made the transfer more excruciating for Jessica who was already in pain.

Jessica said that prior to making the decision to have the abortion, she had no expectation that anything would go wrong because everything she read online said it was a simple and safe procedure.

As a result of the botched abortion, Jessica had to remain hospitalized for several days.

REGRET

Jessica said that days after she was released from the hospital she began to realize just what she had done in having the abortion.

She said she began to look up information online to try and discover why her experience was so unlike what she had read about regarding abortions generally.

“I had a big conflict in my heart about my procedure and why everything I read online was not what happened to me.”

Over ten months my life was just devastated,” Jessica emotionally stated, “I lost over eighty pounds.”

Jessica said the abortion put incredible strain on the marriage.

“I don’t think he realized how, like I didn’t realize how fully formed and what we had done.It was terrible.”

“I had actually had a suicide plan at that time things were so low,” she said.

According to Jessica, meeting Lynn Mills was her last effort to make sense of what had happened.

Lynn Mills 162752_000_GI89G63UR.1-0Mills said that Jessica found her online after reading a post at Saynsumthn’s blog (here) and got Mills’ e-mail address from the comment she had left for another abortion patient.

She then contacted Mills.

Mills is helping Jessica work through the pain and regret of the abortion.

Jessica said that she is planning to get counseling for the abortion as well as her marriage. She is working on forgiving herself.

WomensCenterSouthfield SuspendedMill

According to Mills, the state of Michigan has since suspended the license of the abortion clinic.

CONCLUSION

Jessica and Mills have become friends and Jessica said Mills is someone she can tell everything about this experience to without judgement.

I want pro-lifers out there to really be kind and loving to my friend Jessica…All I want to do is love her- just love her and get her healthy. Jessica doesn’t want this to happen to anyone else,” Mills said in closing.

Jessica said that her mother has actually changed her position on abortion as a result of what she experienced.

UPDATED AFTER THIS BLOG WAS PUBLISHED: However, Jessica’s mother says she has not changed her mind by writing this in the comments, “I am Jessica’s mother. I was never interviewed by anyone, nor did I change my “position” about abortion. This blog is not factual in many areas. Please keep this in mind when reading.”

Mills encourages pro-lifers to go out to abortion clinics as often as possible to try and reach the Jessicas who might be considering ending their child’s life.

Jessica knows that telling her story will anger some people. She said she came forward because she wanted others to know they do not have to go through what she did and to seek help not abortion if you are a women in a crisis pregnancy.

Abortion doctor admits he regretted decision to abort his child

Posted in Abortion Regret, Abortionist, Canada with tags , , , , , , , on November 21, 2014 by saynsumthn

In March 1983, OB-GYN and former abortionist Dr. Bernard Nathanson sat down with Canada’s notorious abortionist Henry Morgentaler who helped overturn Canada’s abortion law, to discuss complex issues surrounding abortion on CHCH’s television program “Cherington”.

Morgentaler and Bernard Nathanson

In a clip of the show posted below, Morgentaler who died recently shatters the pro-“choice” perception that women do not regret their abortions.

Morgentaler abortion doc

Morgentaler tells Nathanson, “I’ll make a confession to you, when I was a medical student in Montreal, I had one girl already which was two years old, and my wife got pregnant while I was a medical student, a poor medical student, and we decided that she should have an abortion. And she did have an abortion under very sordid conditions. Fortunately, it was done by a doctor. Now we regretted that but it was the right decision.

Bernard Nathanson

Nathanson then asked the abortionist to elaborate on the statement that he regretted the abortion.

Morgantaler responded, “Many women do regret the fact that unfortunately the context of the situation is such that at this point in time we cannot provide the mothering and care which a child needs.”

Morgantaler agreed with the panel that there was a lot of sorrow attached to abortion and that it is not a happy decision for the woman.

New website encourages women to share abortion stories on youtube

Posted in Abortion Regret with tags , , , , , , on July 14, 2014 by saynsumthn

Abortion advocates have created yet another marketing tool to convince women to share their abortion stories.

Their newest ploy is a website called Not Alone:

Not Alone

The site tells women to

1). Tell your story in a short video.
2). Upload your video to YouTube.
3). Show other women they aren’t alone.

This follows the embarrassing video by abortion clinic worker Emily Letts who admitted that although she had access to birth control, worked for an abortion clinic that offered birth control , she did not use birth control when she made the irresponsible decision to video her alleged abortion.

Emily Letts Abortion

In fact, according to the Not Alone website, Emily Letts joined the Not Alone team in the spring of 2014.

Other efforts to get women to share how they killed their unborn children include the One in Three campaign:
One in Three

As well as the failed: I Had an Abortion T-Shirt drive:

I Had abortion_bubble_plannedParenthood1

Of course, NARAL also has a list of abortion stories posted on their website:

NARAL

But these abortion stories do not tell the full picture- you will most likely NOT see abortion stories like the videos below on any of these abortion advocating websites:

In fact, groups like Silent No More Awareness Campaign have been exposing abortion regret for years! Something the abortion lobby doesn’t want women to know about !

Toni Braxton talks about abortion of convenience calls her decision selfish

Posted in Abortion Regret, Hollywood with tags , , on May 20, 2014 by saynsumthn

Toni Braxton says abortion was selfish- she feels ashamed-she still deals with the psychological impact of her decision.

Toni BraxtonET

According to the interview that she gave to ET, Toni claims that more than 10 years ago, she discovered she was pregnant by her then-boyfriend, soon to be husband Keri Lewis. (Of R&B band Mint Condition) Toni says she was in the middle of a six-month prescription of Accutane, which is a heavy-duty prescription acne treatment that can produce devastating side effects for fetuses.

She made the decision to terminate the pregnancy, as a result of this but in her new memoir “Unbreak My Heart“, she admits that even if she hadn’t been on the medication, she would’ve made the same decision. According to Braxton, her reasons had more to do with convenience than fear her baby would be abnormal.

“I felt selfish because I was thinking, I’m going through bankruptcy — there’s things going on with my life and I can’t give this kid any future. I was feeling hopeless for no reason, when I look at it now for no reason, what was I thinking?

“I am not really embarrassed about it, I am more ashamed of myself for doing that because I could’ve figured something out financially — that was just an excuse I was making for myself.”

Years later, when her second son Diezel was diagnosed with autism, she felt a tremendous sense of guilt.

“Is God punishing me for that abortion?” she wrote. Braxton added she realized her thoughts may sound strange to some, but she couldn’t help believing that this was, “God’s payback to give my son autism.” She also began questioning whether her health troubles (she has lupus) and her parents’ messy divorce were the result of the abortion.

Toni claims she still deals with the psychological impact of her decision.

I often tell myself I have three kids. I have two boys, but I often have to tell myself I have two kids. But in my head I feel like I have three kids,” she explained.
