You cannot sever the bond between mother and child and expect the woman to emerge unscathed

The issue of abortion can never be considered settled as long as babies are dying and mothers are grieving

At the outset of my reading career in the first grade, Sister Marcia displayed a sign bearing the word “do.” She then requested that my fellow classmates and I pronounce the word. I promptly raised my hand and loudly proclaimed, “Doh,” as in one of my favorite songs from The Sound of Music (“Do…a deer, a female deer”). A male classmate interjected, “Doo,” and Sister Marcia pronounced this to be the correct response.

In retrospect, I can appreciate the hilarity of my singing-along reading abilities. However, I believe that this incident serves to illustrate an important aspect of communication. It is impossible to communicate effectively if one is uncertain about the meaning of the words one uses.

If the term “abortion” is defined as “reproductive freedom” or “a woman’s right,” as abortion advocates often do, it is more likely to be tolerated—even celebrated.

However, abortion can be defined as the termination of a human pregnancy, which results in the death of an innocent, unrepeatable human life. The act of abortion is inherently violent, resulting in the mother grieving the loss of her child. The mother, in fact, becomes a victim of the situation, suffering psychologically, spiritually, and even physically. It is impossible to sever the bond between mother and child without causing significant psychological and physical harm to the woman.

The act of abortion is tantamount to the denial of a child’s freedom to mature and reproduce. Furthermore, it negates the woman’s right to witness the maturation of her child. The act of abortion is, by its very nature, an act of death rather than life. As such, it is an act that is anathema to the human spirit.

The issue of abortion will remain unresolved as long as there are still instances of infant mortality and maternal bereavement. It is a fallacious assumption to believe that the damage caused by legal abortion can be eradicated through the use of clever turns of phrase.

The number of children who are unable to attend school today is significant, due to the legalisation of abortion. The number of individuals who have been lost to this scourge on our land is in excess of 64 million.

The only viable solution to this predicament is to pursue the truth and ensure that the most vulnerable members of society are afforded justice. Anything less than this would be tantamount to a further broken campaign promise.
