‘They never told me’: Women testify of being deceived by the abortion industry

Abortion has been sold to the public by Planned Parenthood, the abortion industry, and its friends in the media as a “right” for women, and as a marker of women’s empowerment. But in reality, many abortion patients say the experience was not the least bit empowering, testifying how they were given almost no information regarding the potential physical and emotional effects of the procedure, or regarding facts about the development of their babies. Beyond this, it is clear that teens who have abortions are at particular risk, as Planned Parenthood and other facilities do little to protect them, asking few questions and failing to report potential sexual abuse.

Below are statements from several women, including many minors, who suffered at the hands of the abortion industry, submitted to the Supreme Court in the case of Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt, which the Court decided in favor of the plaintiff, an abortion conglomerate with an extensive list of health and safety violations over several years. These women state that informed consent was not a part of their abortion experiences:

Mary K. S., age 13
I was thirteen, having a “forced” abortion by my parents…. Nobody told me what really happens to the baby…. I was traumatized because I wanted to keep the baby…. The doctor had only aborted half the baby…. THE OTHER HALF WAS STILL IN ME!…

Aishaq M., age 13
No. I was only 13 years old. Nobody ever explained to me what would be happening to me. They explained it to my father. However no one spoke directly to me. I was not given an option…. I was pregnant as a result of rape….

Nika, age 14
No. I was fourteen. This child was a product of rape. I was not given any other options, told my baby was a glob of tissue and was given no aftercare. Told absolutely nothing about what could happen during as a complication or what can happen after, nor of the emotional toll this would take on my life.

Karin, age 15 
No. I was only 15 and was NOT given a choice – I did NOT want to have this done. I screamed at the doctors to stop but I was a minor and my parents made the choice for me….

Jennifer M., age 15
No. I was not informed on any facts on abortion during or before my abortion…. I was 15 years old…. My boyfriend’s sister who was 18 took me there. She called and asked beforehand if they would ask for proof of age. They said “no”….

Angela M., age 15
No. I was only 15 and I was so unaware of the consequences of my actions. My parents thought it would make the problem “go away” and everything would be back to normal…. I struggle even saying the word. I had nightmares, I began using drugs and drinking heavily and I struggled getting pregnant when I was married and ready…. My self-esteem is unrecoverable…. I have anxiety and depression.

Nicole P., age 15
No. I was 15 yrs. old. The procedure was never explained to me in any way. My parents did not know – only my boyfriend who drove me there. I was given no other option such as adoption…. I was scared as I laid there and the pain was intense as was the bleeding…. I contemplated suicide!

Shadia, age 15
No. I was 15 years old. I was directly told by the abortion saleswoman that my pregnancy was simply a blob of meaningless tissue. I was not asked if I wanted an ultrasound. I was never told I was killing a child. I was told if I hurried up and scheduled it before I reach 12 weeks, I’d save $150. No consequences…. Less than six months after the abortion, I became suicidal….

Julie E., age 16 
When I went to Planned Parenthood for the free pregnancy test, the counselor came back in the room with the news that I was indeed pregnant. I was in shock and heartbroken. I was 16. I had no support and no help. She never explained the procedure. She never told me options. It was presented as the only option but the procedure wasn’t explained….

Lisa C., age 16
I was 16 and scared. I was told halfway through the procedure that I was further along than they suspected and they had to switch the larger diameter instruments. I realized then it had to be a baby and that it was already too late to save it. I laid in bed and endured the worst psychological and physical pain I have ever felt….

Vickie E., age 16
No. I was not informed about the risks, the procedure performed or what exactly was going on. I was only 16 years old and was treated with no respect and seemingly disdain from the doctor, nurses and office staff. I was not even minimally informed of any adverse effects.

Kimberly V. D. L., age 16
No. The procedure was explained as terminating a pregnancy…. Medically, I had intense bleeding after procedure and there was no one to call or to turn to but my school nurse. I was not offered any counseling concerning the emotional aftermath. No one asked about the father, who was 21 and I was 16, no one told me he had committed a crime pressuring me into sex.

C.C., age 16
No… I was never told about what my other options were and where to seek help if I wasn’t sure about my decision (which I wasn’t). I remember asking advice from the woman who had just explained the procedure to us, about whether or not I should go through with it or not. She told me, “Look, I’m not a counselor or anything but you seem like a smart girl to me. I don’t think you wanna ruin your life by having a baby right now…. At sixteen years old, frightened and alone, you can imagine the impact that these words had on me…. I was treated like a number and not a person…. As long as I was able to pay, nothing else mattered.

K.H., age 16
No. I was not told anything. I was only 16 years old and I was being forced into having the abortion by my mother…. The nurse never spoke to me about anything that would go on, what was going on, or what would happen later other than not to get pregnant again. They spoke to my mother but never to me.

P.S.J.M., age 17
No. I was 17, scared and didn’t know what to expect, what the consequences would be, how I would feel. They did it so often that they didn’t even bother to explain anything to me. I just followed the instructions.

Patricia L., age 17
No. As a 17 yr. old victim of rape I was told nothing. In fact, I was made to feel as if the rape was deserved because I knew the person. I was treated as if I had been asking for it. I was treated as if there were no other choices but abortion. I was told that no one would believe I was raped so there was no reason to report it either. I was told nothing except that if I didn’t have it then I was choosing to destroy my own life.

Cynthia C., age 19
No. I was not told how the abortion would be done or of any complications or side effects that could occur. I was not told that there was a possibility of not being able to get pregnant in the future or of any of the psychological effects. I was 19 and I was pressured into it by my fiancé….

Jeanene B., teen
No. I was a teenager that was kept in the dark about the whole thing. My parent paid for the abortion. My parent told the medical personnel to not tell me as much as possible….

K.R., age not given
No. The Planned Parenthood counselor told me my baby was only the size of the head of a pin. Later research showed that my baby was developed enough to suck its thumb.

R.W., age not given
No… I became pregnant because I had been raped…. All I knew was that the baby would be taken from me, that it didn’t have a heartbeat, that it was just a blob of tissue…. I was not told about the physical pain – and believe me – it DOES hurt!!… As the doctor was doing the procedure (taking my baby’s life) I couldn’t stop crying, and all he could do was scream at me that “if you don’t shut up, I’m going to knock you out.”

T.P., age not given
No. I visited Planned Parenthood…. Going to the abortion clinic was like going to a doctor for a cold. Very cold, matter of fact, and no, no one told me of any health or emotional consequences.

Gail H., age not given
No. I went to Planned Parenthood… live birth was not even mentioned…. Looking back on this, I feel I was pushed into my abortion…. No other options were even presented to me. I was given no information on what the negative physical, mental and emotional problems could and would occur….

Nicki, age not given
No. I was forced to have this abortion by my ex-husband, an Army officer, who felt another child would adversely affect his military career. I had no idea of the mental, emotional and physical toll it would take on my life.

Lianne, age not given
No. Planned Parenthood staff said it was good to have the abortion early because “it wasn’t a baby yet – only a blob of tissue.” Didn’t inform me of any physical pain, consequences or emotional ramifications. I was not given any information on amount of bleeding, physical pain or other consequences….

Rachele F., age not given
No…. Planned Parenthood told me that my baby was a blob of tissue. They said it was not a baby. I was completely awake during my abortion and felt everything….

Abortion industry leader Planned Parenthood has been caught lying to women about abortion risks as well as fetal development:

The fact is, the abortion industry knowingly deceives women, as attested to by former Planned Parenthood managers.  The women listed above, and millions like them, deserve to be heard. Women — and their babies — deserve better than abortion.

Man escorting woman from Planned Parenthood throws sign of preborn child

Posted in AHA, pro-choice violence with tags , , , , , , on June 2, 2016 by saynsumthn

A man who told anti-abortion demonstrators outside a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic that he has “already killed 7” of his kids, turned his anger at the protesters, eventually ripping the sign with the image of a preborn child out of their hands and throwing it across the parking lot.

In the video uploaded to YouTube in April, you hear an abortion Abolitionist ask if the people walking into the clinic know that “this place kills children.” As the man walks to his car with a female, the abortion Abolitionist tells him the “blood of the children are on your hands sir” as he calls out for the man to “repent” and “turn to Jesus Christ.”

The post-abortive man then gets out of his car, removes his jacket and quickly approaches the Abolitionist. As the demonstrator warns him that he is “being filmed” he proceeds to grab the Abolitionist’s sign.

The protestors calmly talk to the man who says they made “someone cry.” As the female the man escorted out of the Planned Parenthood approaches, he turns and takes her back to the car. Then the angry abortion supporter returns quickly to the demonstrator telling him to “Shut your F-ing mouth.” He proceeds to rip the sign from the Abolitionist’s hands and throws the poster, which contained the image of a preborn child, across the parking lot.

The angry abortion supporter then walks back to his vehicle and leaves. You can watch the video below.

Just one more example of the way abortion provokes violence among those who support it.

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!”

Post-abortion trauma? Pro-choice author says it exists !

Posted in post-abortion, Pro-choice People with tags , , , , , , on January 21, 2015 by saynsumthn

A pro-choice abortion advocate has penned an op-ed stating that the abortion lobby refuses to admit there is such a thing as post-abortion syndrome.

Writing for the blog Truth-out, Genevra Reid begins by describing how she walked to the abortion clinic through a a line of pro-life protesters and then, in a very descriptive way she describes what she saw inside the abortion clinic, “I’m on what feels like an assembly-line inside the clinic, surrounded by a group of women and girls being herded from one room to the next. Undress here, get your ultrasound there, sign your papers over that way. There’s a silent sisterhood, an understanding, between us. We talk a little.

“The youngest of us looks like she’s about fourteen. She’s crying because she wants her mom to be with her when it happens. The oldest of us says she did this once before and promises the teenager that it’s not that bad. They sedate you, she says, so you probably won’t even remember it.

“I sign the consent forms with shaking hands. Yes, I’m sure. No, no one is pressuring me.”

Reid then describes the abortion:

    The doctors and nurses look irritated that I declined the sedative. I didn’t have much choice. I was already four dollars short of affording the “discount” procedure, and had to find the difference by digging under my car seats for loose change. Two hundred dollars extra for sedation wasn’t something I could manage.

    They tell me to lie back and say it’s no worse than a pap smear. I believe them only for a moment before it feels like someone is stabbing my womb with a hot knife. My ears are ringing lividly and my vision is strobing. I can’t breathe. I feel like a trapped animal being eaten alive. This isn’t an abortion clinic, I think. They lied to me. They tricked me. They’re killing me. It hurts. Oh, God, it hurts.

    “BE STILL!” the doctor screams, but I can barely hear her over the ringing in my ears and the sound of my heartbeat. The nurses are holding down my arms and legs. I tell them to stop. I tell them that they’re killing me. I tell them that something is wrong—very, very wrong, because it’s not supposed to hurt like this. I’m trying not to move or scream but my body is rebelling violently. I’m about to lose consciousness. Maybe I’m about to die.

    At once, the ringing stops and the nurses let go of me.

Reid the writes about how the abortion affected her traumatically, “Those last two words—it’s over—always shake me awake. It’s been two years, but I have never been able to un-hear them. They echo in my ears as I shoot up in bed, nauseated and panicked and drenched in sweat. I shake violently, scrambling to open a bottle of Klonopin and struggle to swallow the tablet against my sobs.This happens to me two or three times a week.”

She says that months after the abortion, her doctor diagnosed her with post-traumatic stress disorder due to her nightmares, panic attacks, flashbacks, “For some, [PTSD] it’s abuse,” she writes, “For others, war. For me, it was an abortion.”

Although she claims that, “Post-abortion mental health problems are hugely exaggerated by anti-choicers,” she admits that the abortion industry ignores the fact that women suffer from abortion trauma, “I am part of the hidden epidemic of women suffering from post-abortion trauma. Many of my fellow pro-choice activists, despite their good intentions, say that my experience isn’t real, or is so rare that it doesn’t ultimately matter…

Reid continues to supports abortion but her admission to post-abortion trauma is telling!

The pro-life group, Silent No More, has been bringing awareness to post-abortion syndrome for years, despite as Reid admits, denial by the abortion lobby.
