VIDEO: “I’m A Millionaire Because I Had An Abortion.”
February 7, 2013 2 Comments
In this video a woman credits her abundant wealth to aborting her own child when she was eighteen. Her punch line, and what get’s the pro-lifer’s attention (and ours obviously!), “I’m a millionaire because I had an abortion.” This, unfortunately is a common argument for abortion and the advancement of young women on college campuses. It is quit sad.
I think it’s a little far-fetched to claim this and I think its more for shock value by abortion proponents, but like any joke there is a little bit of truth behind it. In reality, her and many young college students back then, since then and even today are more than willing to abort their own children then to abort their college and professional careers. The abortion rate on college campuses is through the roof.
Abortion in this circumstance and like all circumstances, is not necessary. Sure, quitting school is hard, but abortion is harder. The act will haunt you until it is resolved. There are many financially successful mothers who ignored the abortion temptation, gave LIFE to their child and continued with their education and careers. It is difficult, but possible and the right thing to do. Isn’t that what true feminism is all about?
Let’s keep this mother, all mother’s who think like this and all college students in this same situation and thought process in our thoughts and prayers. And let’s continue to reach out to them in bold yet compassionate ways.
