I Couldn’t Turn My
Abortion Into Art

New York Times, by Lisa Selin Davis

Original Article

Posted By:garnet, 7/3/2014 10:03:36 AM

I had just turned 22 and I had the self-esteem of a squashed toad. This may explain why I was having an affair with a married 36-year-old sound mixer whom I’d met on a film shoot a couple of months earlier. I’d had only one serious boyfriend by this time and recently had been asked for the first time, “Can I buy you a drink?” by a man. (He was an actor in a film I’d worked on the summer before; he asked everybody that question, but still it felt like progress.) Somehow, by that tender age, I had convinced myself

It was a sad read, for me; the saddest part being, she suffered much, but learned little.

You woke up crying because in your heart you knew what you had done was horribly wrong. You say now you didn´t want that baby--but I´ll bet that baby wanted you.

It is all about her, no thought for the life she chose to destroy. Very sad and sickening. A view into the life of an naïve narcissist who wants her daughters to grow to be just like her.

Until the last few sentences, I was sure this woman would have realized that abortion is the deliberate killing of a tiny human being and that women harm themselves, too, when they have an abortion. Alas, in typical liberal feminist fashion, she found it impossible to divest herself of her liberal Sandra Fluke feminism.

I want my daughters to have the option of safe and legal abortion, of course. I just don’t want them to have to use it.

That is a non-sequitur: If you don´t want them to have abortions, tell them it´s wrong to get pregnant to begin with. If you truly don´t want your daughters to have abortions, you tell them that abortion is morally wrong, not that it´s a "last resort."

This woman has had her fifteen minutes of semi-fame by writing this opinion, which I am certain she believed was her duty, that she is still a morally upstanding person, but all she did was to cement into place that abortion is a "woman´s right" to kill babies.

Where is the baby´s right to be born? It was sucked out of her by the sterile, polished people in black robes who sit on the Supreme Court of the United States.

Before the "coat-hanger, back-alley" people start protesting, there is no middle ground here: A fetus is either a living baby or it isn´t. If it isn´t, why are some people given longer prison sentences for killing a pregnant woman than a non-pregnant one? Because the fetus is not a baby?

(I know I shouldn´t have begun this rant, but I couldn´t let Ms. Davis get away with having her baby and killing it, too.)

My concern about abortion is for the child that is being destroyed as if it didn´t matter. But if more women would admit how awful this is, and tell the true story of the abortion industry (which is what propels this constant screaming for ´choice´)and what it does to women, it would be a step in the right direction.

I am surprised the NYT printed this article. Also I see all the typical shills in the comments, "conservatives want abortion to be illegal, most women don´t feel like this girl, bla bla bla... Why are liberals so blind and so close minded? I am so sick of them.

Definitely fits the profile of an Obama supporter. This is what happens when parents send their children forth without a spiritual foundation. She never did say whether her baby´s father paid up when he returned.

What a contrast in the comments on the NY Times site and here. The NY Times commenters really live in an intellectual vacuum, not to mention the spiritual vacuum and nihilism. What this piece really says is that there should always be a cheap way out, but unfortunately abortion is an unpleasant experience. Who knew? Maybe the baby didn´t enjoy it either. But we should all soldier on and have sex on our own terms. And aren´t those conservatives a bunch of meanies the way they refuse to support children. Yeah, just like the pro-life cab driver who would have worked a second job and raised that child as his own.

There are thousands upon thousands of women in this country who have had this same experience, it takes courage to talk about it, even in the New York Times.

She´s right, of course: a generation which was brow beaten into being convinced it was "a right" - a hard fought-for right. So they went in there, their psyche´s dulled from the experience even before they walked in the door.

Her reaction was real, both physical and emotional pain and torment. All she encountered made her question everything. (And the woman who was having her 8th??? Too horrible to consider!)

Women of several generations who were browbeat with surly conviction by feminists - they feel "I had one, do I have the right to say no, don´t do this????" It´s a knife in the heart that never leaves.

So she says to her daughters the very true thing: do whatever you have to do to not put yourself in that situation so you´ll never have to do what I did.

We´ve lost so many generations of young ladies to the leftist sense of "right" that we forgot to talk to them about the right to be loved, treated with respect and tenderness, without exploitation, with awe towards conception. That is what should be focused on, not condemnation.

The angle of this is the imagined imminent denial of birth control the left is flogging since the Hobby Lobby decision the other day. It pulls at the heart strings and the very last line tells you what will stop this madness. Birth control! But only if it´s free for the user and paid for by others. Emotional extortion.

The comments on the Times´ site are scary. That so many people are so cavalier about what is really murder is awful.

Somebody tell the author that the movie was made about abortion--Love with the Proper Stranger. When the whole process was too sordid to go through with, she balked. Eventually, she decided to have the child, then decided to marry the father.

It´s not all lyrical "Cider House Rules."

For most of 2014, the Democrats looked on the looming congressional elections with considerable dread. All of the standard indicators portend an unhappy outcome for their party.(snip) Then came last week’s Hobby Lobby ruling. In that imminently sensible Supreme Court decision, the Democrats found an unhoped-for opportunity for shameless demagoguery. Indulging their gift for Orwellian rhetoric, they declared that the Court had re-opened hostilities in the fabled “war on women.” (snip) Millions of American women, they thundered, will now be denied access to birth control because five male justices sided with the closet theocrats who own Hobby Lobby.

Will no one rid me of this troublesome priest?—King Henry II.

This excerpt is from the White House website: "And, now, some of you may have read—so we take these actions and then now Republicans are mad at me for taking these actions.

John Kerry’s nightmare dream job

I’ve never had many charitable things to say about John Kerry, but now it’s worse; I feel sorry for him. Kerry certainly isn’t an evil fellow, merely a run-of-the-mill narcissistic opportunist who has risen to the top of the political heap. I admire his service in Vietnam; many children of privilege — did someone mention George W. Bush? — found ways to avoid the war. If he had any stellar accomplishments during his 28 years in the Senate, they are not etched in my memory. He proved to be an inept presidential candidate in 2004. But now, the spin goes,

Now that the Supreme Court has issued its ruling in the Hobby Lobby case, the legal fight over the Affordable Care Act will shift a few blocks away to another Washington courtroom, where a far more fundamental challenge to Obamacare is about to be decided by the powerful U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit. Indeed, if Hobby Lobby will create complications for Obamacare, Halbig vs. Burwell could trigger a full cardiac arrest. The Halbig case challenges the massive federal subsidies in the form of tax credits made available to people with financial need who enroll in the program. In crafting the act, Congress created incentives

After President Barack Obama breathlessly addressed four different foreign-policy issues during a 10-minute statement, he summed up the state of a crisis-filled world in one sentence. "We live in a complex world and at a challenging time," Obama said. Obama touched on the laundry list of global flashpoints situations during a statement from the White House on Wednesday — the disputed elections in Afghanistan, the negotiations on Iran´s nuclear program, the Israeli-Palestinian crisis, and, finally, the conflict in Ukraine. The most significant recent development in these situations was the announcement of new sanctions on Russia shortly before the president spoke. Obama described those

The Obama administration quietly announced on Tuesday that it intends to change the way Americans learn about natural disasters and other major emergencies during radio and TV broadcasts, giving the president the ability to flip a switch and address the entire nation at once. The Emergency Alert System, the latest version of a program first established in 1951, blasts out emergency messages in the event of local weather emergencies, but can also be used to warn Americans about terror attacks and major natural disasters.

In his message to the “Mexico/Holy See Colloquium on Migration and Development,” Pope Francis characterized the tens of thousands of illegal immigrants that have crossed the U.S. southern border as a product of globalization, suggesting that the phenomenon is happening worldwide. Francis proclaimed, “Despite the large influx of migrants present in all continents and in almost all countries, migration is still seen as an emergency, or as a circumstantial and sporadic fact, while instead it has now become a hallmark of our society and a challenge.” Emmer McCarthy for Vatican Radio said Francis expressed his concern for “the tens of thousands of

Mr. McCain, the highest-profile Republican of the U.S. Senate’s “Gang of Eight” that came up with amnesty as the solution to the immigration crisis — and it truly is a crisis — is finally taking a hard line against President Obama for his encouraging the tidal wave of illegal aliens swamping the southwestern border. “There has to be a halt to this,” Mr. McCain thundered Sunday on CNN. “That’s what we want, and the best way to do that is for planeloads of these young people to be returning to their country of origin

It had to come sometime, and it came in one very bad week for the Democrats: that the many big problems with Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama finally grew too great for the press to ignore. Obama in his own different way is heading towards Nixon-like levels of weirdness, as, beaten down by the failures regarding his ventures, he appears to have quit his own job. A.B. Stoddard of the Hill says in effect he has stopped being president and chooses to live in a world of his own, shutting out the problems that have become overwhelming, giving dinners where he talks

He will: Tell you it’s great to be back in whatever town he’s in. Tell you to have a seat – twice. Appreciate the introduction. Love you back. Recommend building more roads and bridges. Say the economy grows from the middle out. Say the wealthy have to “pay their fair share.” Blame Republicans in Congress for everything. Encourage you to vote rather than boo.

Some of Hollywood’s wealthiest liberals are forking over big bucks for Texas Democratic gubernatorial candidate Wendy Texas, according to campaign finance reports recently filed by the campaign. Among those who have donated directly to Davis: singer Barbara Streisand ($1,000) and musician James Taylor ($15,000). A number of other celebs have given money to the Texas Victory Committee, a joint effort of the Davis campaign and the group Battleground Texas. Donors include actress Jennifer Garner ($25,000); director Steven Spielberg ($12,500); DreamWorks CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg ($12,500); actor Matt Damon ($5,000); director Tom Ford ($5,000); director Judd Apatow ($1,000); actress Carrie Fisher ($1,000); actor Tom Hanks

Rep. Tom Rice (R., S.C.) and constitutional law expert David Rivkin on Wednesday predicted victory in the lawsuit the House is launching against President Barack Obama. The House Rules Committee held a hearing on the proposed lawsuit, which is intended to prove the unconstitutionality of Obama’s unilateral delay of the employer mandate portion of the Affordable Care Act. Witnesses at the hearing argued about whether the House has standing to sue the president to enforce the law. “I’m very optimistic that this lawsuit will succeed,” Rivkin said in an interview. “I certainly expect there to be a propaganda offensive to

CIUDAD HIDALGO, Mexico – Mexico is promising to stem the flow of Central American migrants to the United States by tightening control at its notoriously porous Guatemalan border. But messages from the country´s top two leaders in little more than a week have provided few details on how. And the scene on the ground is business as usual. Dozens of Central Americans who paid $1.50 a head could be seen this week crossing the broad Suchiate River on improvised rafts of inner tubes and wooden boards, in full view of Mexican police on the shore and immigration agents posted on

According to documents obtained by the Washington Post, on top of that mammoth speaking fee, Clinton´s contract demands……the university provide "a presidential glass panel teleprompter and a qualified operator," that Clinton´s office have "final approval" of her introducer and the moderator of any question-and-answer session, as well as "the sets, backdrops, banners, scenery, logos, settings, etc," and that the

The ongoing investigation of former CIA director David Petraeus is “perplexing and suspicious,” according to a leading Republican on the House Government Oversight Committee. After sending a letter and questioning Attorney General Eric Holder twice and former FBI Director Robert Mueller once about the probe, Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, told Holder in a new letter this week, "I find the timeline...to be increasingly perplexing and suspicious. I urge the Department to move forward with this investigation in an expeditious and prudent manner." Chaffetz also told Gretchen Carlson on Fox News’ “The Real Story” Wednesday that the open investigation may have a chilling
