By Dave Andrusko Editor’s note. Father’s Day is June 19. Over the next two weeks I’ll be running some new stories, some older stories about one of the most neglected subject areas in the entire abortion debate: a father’s role and responsibility. I do not know William Gensert or anything about him. I just know …Continue reading "Men, abortion, and cowardice: Living with abortion"
By Dave Andrusko Editor’s note. Father’s Day is June 19. Over the next two weeks I’ll be running some new stories, some older stories about one of the most neglected subject areas in the entire abortion debate: a father’s role and responsibility. We’ve collectively been so inundated with the “fact” that abortion is a “woman’s …Continue reading "Men and abortion: demolishing the stereotypes that exclude men from having voice in what happens to their children"
By Olivia Gans Turner Editor’s note. Father’s Day is June 19. Over the next two and a half weeks I’ll be running some new stories, some older stories about one of the most neglected subject areas in the entire abortion debate: a father’s role and responsibility. The following appeared in the January 2008 edition of …Continue reading "Finding their voice: Men speaking out about Abortion"
By Sarah Terzo I have written at length about how the ‘counseling’ in abortion facilities is often coercive, misleading and outright dishonest. In Cynthia Gorney’s massive book about abortion, Articles of Faith: A Frontline History of the Abortion Wars, an abortion center counselor describes a typical counseling session she has with partners of women who …Continue reading "Abortion counselor tells men fetal development is “beside the point”"
By Robin Keahey Shock Jock Howard Stern invited former Full House—and upcoming Fuller House—star John Stamos for a sit down Jan. 4. While Stern is known for his outrageous interview questions and crass humor, one question in his interview with Stamos hit especially close to home for many. Asked if he’d ever gotten someone pregnant, …Continue reading "What a John Stamos Interview Tells Us About Men, Abortion"
By Randall K. O’Bannon, NRL Director of Education & Research Editor’s note. This story appears in the October digital edition of National Right to Life News. All the stories, commentaries, President’s column, and editorials can be read at www.nrlc.org/uploads/NRLNews/NRLNewsOct2015.pdf Studies on women’s negative responses to their abortions have appeared frequently over the past couple of …Continue reading "Research reveals men’s sense of grief and helplessness in response to woman’s abortion"
By Dave Andrusko I do not know William Gensert or anything about him. I just know that several friends forwarded me a link to a story he posted on The American Thinker headlined, “Living With Abortion.” Just as there is no “typical” post-abortion story from the woman’s perspective, so, too, do the accounts of men …Continue reading "Men and abortion: Living with abortion"
By Susan Michelle “There is a reason why ‘mother,’ ‘baby,’ and ‘abort’ have been changed to ‘a woman’s right to choose’; it’s a marketing ploy designed to hide a brutal practice.” Those are the words of Shane Idleman, founder and lead pastor of Westside Christian Fellowship in Lancaster, California, who writes of the pain of …Continue reading "Post-abortive pastor calls for an end to pulpit silence on abortion"
By Eric Metaxas Editor’s note. This ran the Friday before Father’s Day but the topic is ever-timely. It’s good that women are finally beginning to share the pain of their past abortions. But the fathers of those lost children need to be heard — and helped — as well. On Father’s Day this Sunday, many …Continue reading "How abortion affects men"
Responsibility, Guilt and a Child Who Never Was By Phil McCombs, Washington Post Staff Writer Editor’s note. Phil McCombs’s agonizing 1995 account arguably is the finest post-abortion reflection on abortion from a man’s perspective ever written. This year’s March for Life in which 45,000 abortion opponents picketed the Supreme Court, didn’t have the emotional impact …Continue reading "Remembering Thomas"
By Sarah Terzo Among pro-lifers, it is well-known that many women suffer emotionally after their abortions. A previous Live Action article about post-abortion women and suicide mentioned two studies that found that women who aborted had a six to seven times higher suicide rate than women who did not. There are many support groups and …Continue reading "Post-abortive father reveals his pain in Esquire article"
By Dave Andrusko Funny that such a rough road could lead me to a terrific pro-life resource. I’d seen a passing slur from a pro-abortion site, badmouthing a new video that (we were told) was all about men trying to “control women.” I had meant to look it up but did not. Today I …Continue reading "“The Apology”: three men express their sorrow for their participation in an abortion"
