Pro-abortionist laments life-saving impact of hand-knit booties, prayer, and sincere congratulations

Published on

Very often in their campaign of vitriol and hatred against pregnancy centres, pro-abortionists unwittingly drop some real corkers. In a way, perhaps we should expect this.

If they’ve convinced themselves that volunteer-run organisations working on a shoestring budget to help women in crisis are their mortal enemies, perhaps it’s to be expected that they’ll end up admitting things that, on reflection, they’d never let slip out of their mouths.

Take “How to Fight Fake ‘Crisis’ Pregnancy Centres When Free Pregnancy Tests Beckon?” by Joy Baynes.

Interestingly, Baynes makes an intriguing concession right off the bat (which she doesn’t see as such): “For many people, anti-choice pregnancy centres provide an important service: free or low-cost pregnancy tests.” Baynes immediately puts this service in “context”, to blunt the impact of what she has just admitted.

Then a quick tour of her own history of having an abortion right out of college and her current career as a family nurse practitioner who “sees in many of my teenage patients what I saw in myself”.

Then… this:

Recently, I was interviewing young people in my community, aged 14 to 24, to find out how to meet their needs before the launch of my workplace’s new reproductive health clinics for young people. I asked them if they knew where they could get pregnancy tests. Every single one of them, 85 to be exact, named a crisis pregnancy centre as the number one place they would go, or had heard they could go.

Why? In their own words, “it’s free.” “You can walk in.” “You see the sign when you walk by/drive by/take the bus.”

Holy moly, those pesky crisis pregnancy centres are everywhere, handing out free pregnancy tests. What’s a pro-abortion Family Nurse Practitioner to do in the face of such selfless altruism?!

What else? Roll out steamy, overheated rhetoric [“bait and switch,” “biased,” “spreading misinformation,” “false medical information,” etc.] to make up for what she lacks in facts; and outright lies (“fake clinics” are “well-funded by the federal government and private donors”).

I passed Baynes’ story on to several people I know who work in or write about crisis pregnancy centres.

Everyone agreed with this paragraph. It explains everything you need to know about the two sides in this debate.

My niece, who is a mother to two kids under two, went to a fake clinic twice for pregnancy tests. At the first sign of a positive pregnancy test, they presented her with a pair of hand-knitted blue booties for her baby, prayed with her, and congratulated her on her pregnancy. They did not allow her to consider any other options for her pregnancy.

These women are so Machiavellian they hand-knit booties. They prayed with her niece. They congratulated her when they told her she was pregnant again!

They prayed with her and gave her niece booties. But they didn’t tell her where to get an abortion.

How will this end?

By saving many babies.
