The Solemnity Of Abortion


Twenty years ago I wrote the forward to the book "Abortion: My Choice, God's Grace" by Anne Eggebroten. Whether you are pro-choice or pro-life, if you haven't read this book, you should. It is a compilation of stories of Christian women and their abortion experiences. In the forward, I wrote:

"Abortion is almost always a difficult decision, no matter how much bravado a woman displays. I am continually awed by the spiritual struggle women go through as they face the decision, their introspection is admirable, and their anguish is quite real. … More than anything else, being able to choose and being affirmed in that choice gives a woman peace."


I then went on to write about the spiritual damage the various denominations of the Christian church do to the women in their congregations who've had abortions, either through excoriation of abortion or complete silence about abortion.

Twenty years later I find I need to write about the damage the Planned Parenthood videos are doing to women who've had abortions. Not from the angle of the filmmakers, but from the angle of the clinic staff and doctors and the leadership of Planned Parenthood.
