Legalized abortion is convenient for pro-abortion anti-choicers, too

Nicholas Macleod relates:

“I was doing ‘Choice’ Chain outside of Rideau Centre in Ottawa, in the hub of downtown. A sixteen-year-old girl, let’s call her Lisa, came up to me and said hi. We spoke for a few minutes, and she told me that she had done pro-life activism, and that her parents were very pro-life.

“She then told me that she had been raped at a party, and that as a result of this she was a month and a half pregnant. Lisa explained that although many people were harassing her to get an abortion, she was keeping the baby. She related that she had even had to close down her Facebook page because people were posting messages telling her to get rid of her child. Lisa told me in a strong voice that she knows that this is going to be difficult, especially when she starts becoming visibly pregnant, but that she will deal with it.

“This girl is a hero. She is not only dealing with this tragic situation, but she is doing it with strength and joy. It is hard to hold a graphic sign on the streets and talk to a hostile public, but not nearly as hard as what this young girl is doing. She is a hero, and we can be, too.”
