Via Robert Stacey Stacy McCain’s post, The First Rule of Feminism, I found this gem:
I Aborted My Baby – Because it was a Boy
Over the past 3 years, I have lost many friends, and several of my own family members have completely cut off communication with me. I now know that these are “adults” who just cannot handle the fact that I have the right to make choices, and that these choices ultimately hardly even affect them.
Not to worry: I suspect that she’ll find many new friends when she finally gets to Hell.
In the spring of 2012, I found out that I was pregnant. I had a good idea who the donator was, but money wasn’t really an issue, and I knew that I would be a good mother-like figure for the child by myself. I have always believed in the right for all women to have a choice in terminating their pregnancy, but when I confirmed the diagnosis about a month into into it, I decided that I WAS ready to have this child.
My journey has taken me to many different places fighting for women’s rights and carrying the banner of the Feminist Movement, even to the point of eschewing a career. One of the more prominent themes that I saw in these places was that men generally would look down on us, refuse to help us, or hardly even lend an ear so that we could air our grievances. This didn’t surprise me, the patriarchy has been well entrenched since the dawn of time, but here I was, here I am, ready to change it.
I’m skipping over an incident here in which the author claims that “a particularly well dressed man” was rude to her.
As spring turned into summer and my belly started to grow, my mind ran wild with the thoughts of teaching my daughter from a young age tolerance and feminist ideals. Choosing the right all-girls daycare, then elementary school, all so that she could grow up and thrive in an environment where women are told that they can do anything that they want to do. No man will be around to hurt her progress, no boys there to demean her or call her names.
I had already started buying gender neutral clothing since I did not want outside influences affecting what gender she would ultimately become. My research on nannies one day came to an abrupt end when my cell phone alarm went off – time for my 5 month appointment. These early appointments had gone well enough, my baby was progressing in a healthy manner.
Today, my doctor, who I will call “Sandy” did an ultrasound and everything appeared to be fine. “Would you like to know the gender?” Sandy asked. I thought to myself “That machine is an ultrasound, not a crystal ball, you couldn’t tell me the gender of my baby even if you wanted to”
“Sure” was my response.
“It’s a boy”…..
“What?” I managed to sputter. Sandy then showed me on the ultrasound how exactly my body had betrayed me even worse than the misogynistic suit jockey on the airplane so many months before. I was in shock, I started crying, weeping at the thought of what I was about to curse the world with.
On my way home, my driver asked if I was ok and if I needed anything. “JUST STOP RIGHT HERE” I yelled. Deciding to walk the 4 blocks back home. My home became my prison and my fetus became my warden the next 48 hours. Crying, sobbing, uncontrollable weeping, mental anguish the likes of which may only be experienced by those who have had their lives destroyed by war, I was a refugee, and my home was my refugee camp, an unfamiliar place that was just….sheltering me.
By the third day, I started regaining some of my mental strength and knew what I had to do. I couldn’t bring another monster into the world. We already have enough enemies as it is. It didn’t matter that I would be raising a son, he would still come into contact with boys, men, perhaps even the suit jockey who would inevitably twist his carefully constructed upbringing with their kindness. He would think “These men aren’t so bad, why would mom say that they are holding me down?”
There’s more of “Lana’s” story, at the original, if you can stand it. RS, a commenter on Mr McCain’s site, thinks that he story is so over-the-top that he wondered if it wasn’t just a giant hoax. I suppose it could be.
This lovely young woman viewed her unborn child as a baby, she apparently loved her, right up until the moment she found out that her daughter would actually be a son . . . and then she had him killed.
Make no mistake about it: this young woman was not someone who detachedly thought that a “fetus” wasn’t really a person, a living human being, because that wasn’t how she thought of her unborn child when she thought (for whatever reason) that the child would be female. Once she discovered that her unborn child would be male, she had him killed . . . yet she thinks that men are the monsters.
Then, if you read the rest of her article, she got pregnant again, and, fortunately for her child, this one was female, and thus allowed to live, but she went into getting pregnant again knowing that there was a 50/50 chance that her next child would be male as well, went into getting pregnant knowing that there was a 50/50 chance she’d have this one killed, too.
Lana has managed to put the lie to all of the pro-abortion people’s claims that an unborn child isn’t really alive, isn’t really a person; pregnant women know exactly what they are doing when they have abortions.
