A pro-life organization has posted a YouTube video of a scene that were you not to see it with your own eyes and hear it with your own ears, you would not believe it could be true.
The setting, we’re told, was of a “blessing” of Your Choice Healthcare, a non-surgical abortion facility in Columbus, Ohio.
The lesson is clear. The speaker is telling us that she received visions and a voice from her about-to-be- aborted baby. And that the mother had gotten the okay.
About two weeks before her abortion, the woman tells her audience, she “started having visions and talking to the spirit of the child that I believe had come to me…
I remember in the clinic when I was waiting for the operation, the procedure, a song came to me in my head and, out of nowhere, and it was a pretty little lullaby that came to me and I want to sing it to you. I knew it was from the spirit of that child saying “it’s okay.” So you may recognize the song.
After she sings a part of the song, she adds
And I truly felt that it was a blessing from the spirit to make the decision that I needed made
The lullaby is actually an old Beatles song, “I will.” Here are the lyrics she sang
Who knows how long I’ve loved you
You know I love you still
And I will wait a lonely lifetime
If you want me to, I will
Love you forever and forever
Love you with all my heart
Love you whenever we’re together
Love you when we’re apart
What to say. To begin with, this reminds us yet again that there are endless coping mechanisms when a woman aborts her child.
The Beatles’ song is, of course, the antithesis of the action that takes the life of another. It is a promise of always being there, of faithfulness, of a love that that lasts forever.
No doubt the connection for the unidentified woman is that this love can be expressed whether “we’re together” (both alive) or “we’re apart” (the baby is dead).
After all the very first thing we hear her say is that “in my faith there is only a thin veil, a door, that separates the living from the other side.”
Meaning the baby who is alive in her womb is speaking to her two weeks out from the abortion, while the woman is waiting to end her child’s life, and (presumably) will “speak” to her periodically afterwards. All have the same reassuring message: it’s okay, Mom, to send me to the other side.
I should be outraged, and I am. But I can only feel pity for this poor woman and sorrow for the death of a child who, were she asked, would have said, “No, Mom, it’s not okay.”
