Keep the Iowa Standard Going!
There’s a video making the rounds on social media called “Kids Meet Someone Who’s Had an Abortion.” Spoiler alert, it’s about kids having a conversation with a woman who has had an abortion. Amelia Bonow of Shout Your Abortion is the supposed adult in the conversation.
The video was posted on Friday morning. It has more than 119,000 views.
Children who appear in the video seem to have very little knowledge about abortion and had plenty of questions.
Bonow was asked by one of the kids why she had an abortion.
“A few years ago I got pregnant, and I really didn’t want to have a baby.”
The child, who appears to be a teen, asked what happened in terms of the lack of preventative measures taken. Bonow said her partner wasn’t wearing protection because… “have you ever had two options, and one of them like seems easier at the time.”
She was asked what exactly happens during an abortion.
“You go to the doctor and they put this little straw inside of your cervix and then inside of your uterus and then they just suck the pregnancy out.
“It was like a crappy dentist appointment or something. It was just like, ah, this is like a body thing that’s kind of uncomfortable, but then it was over and I felt really just grateful that I wasn’t pregnant any more.”
One child said he didn’t think abortion was OK if nothing was wrong and people were just being reckless. The “adult” in the conversation disagreed, asking him if we wanted people to have all of those babies. The child mentioned adoption, but the “adult” wasn’t having it.
“I feel like if I am forced to create life, I have lost the right to my own life. I should be the one to decide if my body creates a life. Even if you’re giving a kid up for adoption, you still like have a kid out there somewhere, you know.”
Wow. Intellectual brilliance. Deep.
Bonow then asks the kid if he’s religious and what he thinks God thinks about abortion. He asks her the same question.
“I think it’s all part of God’s plan,” she said.
She asks a Catholic girl what she has heard about abortion. One of the young girls said the church doesn’t like it, but both young girls in the clip agreed it is up to the individual.
Bonow said she felt supported by that.
The conversation then turns toward when life begins. It gets worse from there as it becomes more of a joke than anything else.
She talks about the phrase ‘pro-life’ being propaganda. She basically launches into all the leftist talking points. She says you can be anti-choice for yourself, but pro-choice for others.
Then they discuss the terrible old white dudes.
Finally, she’s asked how she handles being defined by having an abortion.
“It feels like I’m living my exact right life — God’s plan.”
But here’s the thing…
God’s plan is not for a mother to kill her baby. God’s plan is for a mother to be kind, loving and nurturing to her baby.
And according to science and God, the baby becomes a life at the moment of conception.
Bonow can attempt to justify her abortion any way she likes, but it will never erase what she has done. Rather than attempt to be proud and contaminate young minds with pro-abortion propaganda, she should repent.
God does not condone murder. In fact, He explicitly prohibits it. By definition, murder is the premeditated, intentional taking of another human’s life. And like I said, through science and religion, an unborn baby is most certainly a living thing. It has all the characteristics of life.
Bonow allowed her baby to be killed. I am sorry she made that decision. It was not God’s plan for her to destroy the life He created in her.
There’s one conversation I’d really like to see between Bonow and a kid, but it will never happen. I’d like to see the conversation between Bonow and her child, with Bonow explaining exactly why she chose to abort the child rather than respecting the child’s right to life.
I’d like to see Bonow look her daughter or son in the eye and say “I really didn’t want a baby.” Or “I feel like if I am forced to create life, I have lost the right to my own life.”
Unfortunately for Bonow, she’ll never have that conversation with her aborted unborn child.
She’ll never have any conversation with her child, because instead of giving her unborn baby life, she gave him or her death.
If it sounds harsh, I’m sorry. I hope and pray that some day Bonow stops seeking safety, affirmation and approval from humans — adults or kids — and instead yearns for God’s approval. She can find it, if she seeks it.
