- Yes, this is disgusting.
Yes, this is exactly what makes us truly scared of the pro-abortion lobby as it is: the clinical and detached writing in this how-to post by a feminist blogger attempting to teach blocked South Dakota abortion seekers to "do it themselves." (Link is to a newspaper article. Link to the actual article available only upon request so as to limit the traffic to this blogger's page).
At her "Molly Saves the Day" weblog, the 21-year-old Florida resident uses the pseudonym Molly Blythe. Given the volatility of the abortion debate, she requested that her real name and city of residence not be used in this story.
In an interview, the blogger said South Dakota's recent ban on abortion -- even in cases of rape and incest -- prompted her post, "For the Women of South Dakota: An Abortion Manual." The blogger, who has no medical background, said she has been compiling instructions for several years. She observed an actual abortion, interviewed providers and read medical texts, she said.
Unfortunately for "Molly," if a single woman dies or is injured in a reasonably forseeable way after using the instructions she's provided, she will lose everything she has in a lawsuit, and frankly, she deserves to. This is not only endangering the lives abortion already endangers, but the lives of the women who are seeking them.
There are realities to abortion; it exists whether it is legal or not, it harms women and children whether it is legal or not. Abortion must be eliminated, though the precise method is debatable. It is not a "good." It is not a "boon." It is a medical procedure whose results are devastating to many lives. Taking it as callously as Molly takes it should caution anyone who seriously believes in the true nature of the pro-abortion movement. This is not feminism. To them, abortion is a sacrement that should be carried out regardless of its immorality, its destruction and its pain, in the name of radical feminist nature and the agenda of a thousand women who seek to destroy the definitions of human dignity as we know it.
This is sick, and should be seen as nothing more than that.
Good luck, Molly. Lets hope your first lawsuit occurs in a state that limits punative damages.
