When we teach women (and then subsequently men) that they cannot be successful in this world with children–it is not a woman’s world.
In today’s world it is better for a baby to die, in many women’s conception, than to have that baby and make a go of it.
This is a world created by ideological pro-choice feminists and opportunistic men.
The point of this blog is to say that women can be successful with children.
The point of this blog is to help a 22-year-old see that she can have it all (but maybe not on the same day).
The point of this blog is to have older childless women telling younger women that there is more to success than how they define it in that moment. You simply do not think at 40 the same way you did at 20.
I’ve long known women choose abortion because they perceive choosing life for their child to be death for themselves.
It is not a woman-friendly world that allows us to think this way.
At bottom, life is not to be thrown away. Not for women and not for babies. An embryo is a fetus is a baby is a child. You were that embryo. If you think your own life is meaningless, you will not see value in an embryo, fetus, baby or child. If you do–you should be able to extend the right to life to a new person.
At bottom, articles like the one linked above completely overlook the child. It’s as if the child weren’t actually there. The abortion is simultaneously such a difficult decision because it is taking life, but then nothing at all–because if it were something important, how could you do it? This cognitive dissonance is perpetuated by pro-choice fanatics.
If you are young and pregnant and believe your life is over or ending, please know this is not the case. There are people and agencies who can help you–not manipulate you, not coerce you, but really, really help you.
Our lives are a roaring adventure or nothing at all, is a quote I’ve seen somewhere. Feminists demand we live lives of nothing at all, pushing adventure to the side in favour of a very constrained form of “success.” Sad.
(I wrote this because someone sent me this painful article. Read it or don’t–it’s the story of a girl getting an abortion published in Teen Vogue.)
