The psychological effect of legalized abortion upon our children

By Michael Moriarty
web posted May 14, 2007

I speak from personal experience. At eight years of age my drunken, bitter mother told me that my father had “forced” her to have not one, but two abortions.

I - not knowing the meaning of the word – asked my eleven year old sister to define abortion.  She did so without hesitation. It is unconscionable that children of eight and eleven should be made aware of their parents’ license to murder, execute and extinguish a stage of growth which my sister and I had already passed through.
My sister and I knew we had two siblings that had been eliminated - and those siblings could very well have been us. Such an encounter with human indifference and contempt for human life is life-shattering.

Imagine yourself living in an incredibly vicious jungle where those who can least protect themselves are butchered. It is a diametrical opposite of our civilization, where the strong are obliged to protect those who cannot protect themselves.

Is it any wonder that after Roe v. Wade children cold-bloodedly became murderers, thus reflecting the same exact attitude their parents had toward their own gestating infants?
The children and young adults of Columbine and Virginia Tech had not spoken of abortion as an influence, but they had been affected subliminally. I know this from my own experience that had affected my entire life and my view of humanity in general.

Until Roe v. Wade is overturned and legalized abortion is ended America is on a suicidal track, one predicted by Abraham Lincoln who said that America will never be overcome by a foreign power - if it dies it will be by suicide. Gestating infants are parts of their mothers’ bodies, therefore abortion becomes a self-destruction of sorts. Lincoln spoke against being “enthralled by slavery” and implored America to dis-enthrall herself. America must dis-enthrall herself from the Feminist ethic or she will be lost.

My description of the feminist movement as a second Southern Confederacy is more than apt. Feminist belligerence may lead to a second Civil War. In this instance, however, the rebels will be against the slavery of abortion. It means that they must defeat a federal government, controlled by a progressive, pro-abortion administration. Despite the odds against that, the rebels will win. Eventually members of the federal government will have no stomach shooting fellow Americans for fighting to save lives. There will be a breakdown within the federal government and America will return to her senses. ESR
