CV NEWS FEED // Abortion advocates claim that the legal “right” to kill a child is all for protecting a woman’s “choice” or her “autonomy.” Many women, however, don’t feel like abortion was their choice.
Instead, they were so pressured to abort that they felt they had no choice.
Recently X user @Prolife_Sam posted seven instances of real women experiencing bullying or coercion by pro-choice family members, doctors, and peers. They reveal some common reasons mothers feel forced to kill the life inside them.
“Starting off strong with people telling a woman she should get an abortion because her baby has down syndrome (EXTREMELY common).”
It shows a toddler dancing while the mother’s video text reads at the top, “She has down syndrome, you should get an abortion,” and at the bottom is shown a pointing up emoji at her happy child with the words “My reaction.”
In the next two videos, both mothers say they were told to abort because they were teens. The post reads, “Another super common one – teens who get pregnant are very often told that they should abort, even when they don’t want to, by pro-choicers.”
In the first video, a mom shares that she was told, “You’re only 16 you should get an abortion.” It then skips to a picture of her and her daughter saying, “Does she know how proud I am she was created?”
“You should just get an abortion,” the text flashes on a picture of this pregnant mom before switching to her baby boy with the words, “How could you?”
“Being told by pro-choice fathers that they should abort or else they would leave or not help at all. Very common.”
A young woman shares that her child’s father told her “it would be for the better” for her to abort their baby and then refused to support her when she chose life. She then shows images of her newborn son under the text: “How could a human ever be so cruel???”
This bizarre clip is summarized by @Prolife_Sam: “‘Women should be forced to have abortions’ under the age of 25.”
It shows a male college student insisting that any pregnant woman under the age of 25 should be “forced to have abortions” because “you’re looking at brain development, you’re looking at when are people going to be most economically profitable.” He follows by saying, “I would never want a woman in college to carry a baby to term.”
“Rape victims being told that they should abort their babies – I see this one often because I am friends with a woman who is pro-life, who conceived in rape. Pro-choicers tell her all the time that she should have aborted her baby.”
A woman shares her heartbreaking story of when she was assaulted at 18 years old and felt forced to abort her child. She says, “I got an abortion not because I wanted to, but because the man I was with at the time used shame and fear to manipulate me.”
“Pro-choice DOCTORS telling women that they should abort even when they don’t want to – very common with special needs children,” @Prolife_Sam writes.
A mom holds her smiling baby with the caption, “The doctors when they told me I should get an abortion and I decided against it.”
“Surrogate mother told to abort even when she didn’t want to. Literally a news story yet pro-choicers will claim that this doesn’t happen.”
The following news clip covers a surrogate in California being ordered to abort one of the triplets she carries by the babies’ biological parents.
Foster Care System
The last video in the thread discusses problems with a pro-choice mentality in the foster care system. It reads, “This is something I’ve only just recently learned about – being told to, coerced, or even forced to abort if you get pregnant in the foster care system. I’ve gotten multiple messages about this from people with experience of this, saying it’s pretty common in the foster care system.”
A woman sits in her car with the text saying, “POV when I start telling the truth why I got into fostering. I was forced to have an abortion at 17 at 21 weeks along and they cut my uterus in half and I can’t have kids.”
Stories like these expose the truth about support for legalized, unlimited abortion: It’s never really about protecting a pregnant woman’s choice – it’s about forcing one person’s idea of a “good life” on a vulnerable mother.
