The anti-post abortion trauma deniers are at it on a regular basis, and they are being ably supported by the mainstream media.
Here’s the CBS headline from a round of post-abortion trauma denials I came across: Is “Post-Abortion Syndrome” Just a Myth?
And here’s the opening line from that article…
‘Can having an abortion cause a woman to suffer mental problems? Probably not, according to the latest research.’
Try telling that to the thousands of women all over the globe who are suffering all sorts of emotional, psychological and relationship dysfunctions after having experienced an abortion.
Pro-abortion academics and activists in blood stained ivory towers might be able to convince themselves that their was no ice berg, and that rearranging the ideological deck chairs on their sinking boat is a really great idea, but real women, in the real world, suffering from real post-abortion hurt aren’t fooled by such nonsense.
In fact, these women simply end up being hurt even more by this sort of carry on.
It never ceases to amaze me how the very groups who claim to be all about women rights, and compassion for women, are suddenly so keen to turn on women and deny them their right to have their grief recognized and healed if those women have been emotionally wounded by abortion.
One certainly can’t help but feel that protecting abortion has actually far more important to these so-called ‘women’s rights’ groups, than actually protecting women from harm has.
And what about the total failure from the mainstream media to actually do any proper background research on the claims being made here by pro-abortion groups?
If they did they would discover that thirty studies in the last eight years have shown that abortion hurts women’s mental health.
And they’d also realize that Guttmacher Institute was previously the research arm of Planned Parenthood, the United States’ largest provider of abortion for profit.
And that Dr. Julia Steinberg has been making these sorts of claims in her professional capacity for a while now (in fact, she seems to rely solely on her own research to support such claims, rather than taking into account other studies which have good controls, and so her opposition seems to be based largely on bias, rather than an objective reading of the facts).
It’s bad enough when pro-abortion activists become post-abortion trauma deniers, but when the mainstream media uses comments from pro-abortionists about one study to support the wildly inaccurate claim that this one incident (even if the pro-aborts are proved right in this case) proves definitively that post-abortion trauma isn’t real is both farcical and completely lacking in even a modicum of journalistic integrity.
I’ll leave the last word on this matter to Mr. G.K. Chesterton…
“Fallacies do not cease to be fallacies just because they become fashions.”
