“Pro-Choice” Activist: “I Love Abortion,” “Don’t Want it Rare”
Life News ^ | 3/14/12 | Steven Ertelt

Posted on 03/14/2012 4:10:05 PM PDT by wagglebee

A pro-abortion activist writing at one of the leading pro-abortion web sites is admitting what many the pro-life movement has always known but what leading defenders of abortion refuse to admit. Until now.

Jessica DelBalzo, an activist writer from Flemington, New Jersey who has written for numerous progressive web sites, puts her extreme pro-abortion views on display at RH Reality Check, where she candidly admits in a headline, “I Love Abortion: Implying Otherwise Accomplishes Nothing for Women’s Rights.”

“I love abortion. I don’t accept it. I don’t view it as a necessary evil. I embrace it. I donate to abortion funds. I write about how important it is to make sure that every woman has access to safe, legal abortion services. I have bumper stickers and buttons and t-shirts proclaiming my support for reproductive freedom. I love abortion,” DelBalzo declares.

The pro-abortion activist categorically opposes even the “safe, legal and rare” mantra that pro-abortion politicians like Bill Clinton have used to appear to be more moderate or mainstream on abortion and that even former NARAL president Kate Michelman used to make her organizations position appear less polemic.

As Delbalzo writes, “And I bristle every time a fellow activist uses a trendy catch-phrase or rallying cry meant to placate pro-lifers. The first of these, “Make abortion safe, legal, and rare!” has been used for decades as a call for abortion rights.”

“Safe and legal are concepts I fully support, but rare is something I cannot abide. I understand the theoretical mindset: it is better for a woman to prevent an unwanted pregnancy than to bear the physical and financial burden of an abortion. While my own abortion involved very little pain and a minimal financial expense, one which my ex-boyfriend was willing to share with me, even I can admit that using condoms or the pill is preferable to eight weeks of nausea and weight gain,” she writes. “However, there is no need to suggest that abortion be rare. To say so implies a value judgement, promoting the idea that abortion is somehow distasteful or immoral and should be avoided. Even with affordable, accessible birth control, there will be user errors, condoms that break, moments of spontaneity. The best contraceptive access in the world won’t change the fact that we are merely human and imperfect in our routines.”

She also admits: “Similarly, I’ve heard reproductive rights activists claim that “no one likes abortion,” in an attempt to find common ground with anti-choicers. While it may be true that no one likes the physical act of having an abortion (any more than she may like her yearly mammogram, life-saving chemotherapy, or temporarily uncomfortable dental surgery), a great many women like abortion itself.”

With CNN and Gallup polls showing a majority of Americans want all or most abortions made illegal, this puts the pro-abortion activist in a tiny minority of Americans who want abortion legal throughout pregnancy for any reason without apology.

“I Love Abortion,”

Sounds like a real witch. Murderous hags from hell and they want to drag as many people down with them.

An abortion activist that admits the truth of the pro-abortion position? The “safe, legal, and rare” meme never makes sense when they campaign for more abortions. She’s at least logically consistent, horribly immoral, but logically consistent.

New bumper stickers recently seen on her car:

“Child sacrifice rocks!”

“Molech needs your baby so give it to him!”

“Abortion: love it. Post-birth abortions? Can’t wait!”

“Cancer and abortion link? Who cares. I live only for today and today I need an abortion!”

That is why I always ask, why are abortion lovers themselves never been aborted? The ones who love abortion so much love it because they hate themselves and wish they had been aborted by their mothers

Also, have you ever noticed that most pro-abortion activists don't ever have to worry about having an unwanted pregnancy?

Yep, and it gets worse. Not only does this woman openly embrace abortion, she's an anti-ADOPTION activist, too.

IMO, this is more than misguided "fervor". She's got a screw loose.

I wanted to see a picture of her (curiosity, I guess). Sadly, the only one I could find is one where she is pictured with her adorable baby daughter.

Just put this down to one of the tragic people with mental illness. I remember reading of a crazy woman in Britain who preferred having abortions to using birth control. She had well over a dozen abortions, and tried to get pregnant just so she could abort again.

There really are few depths to which the mentally ill will not descend. Some women develop the “Medea syndrome”, in which they feel compelled to murder their children. If the children are still infants, this is often written off as “postpartum depression”, though the women show no signs of depression, just an intense desire to kill their children.

Often it is murder-suicide, most commonly done in a vehicle, when the mother just decides to drive off a cliff or into a lake.

There are a huge number of mental illnesses. This woman has one of them.

Show me someone who espouses “I Love Abortion,” “Don’t Want it Rare”, and I’ll show you someone who will see some pretty hot days in their future... hopefully sooner rather than later.

She probably believes fertility treatment/care should be covered by everyone else so she can have frequent abortions.

She probably also believes that the world should pay for her contraception so it is FREE to her. Sad, sad, human being, and let me say, it’s hard using that term.

I tried to leave a comment or two on her blog but it appears on the ass-kisser comments are posted on her blog. Her little fragile ego can vent but cannot take criticism. BTW, there are like 5 comments. She is not a force or anything close to that. I’ve probably given her way too much of my time already.

If abortion is “safe”, why do legal clinics still botch abortions leading to impairment and death?

Parental consent is a REQUIREMENT because minors CANNOT consent to surgery.

“However, there is no need to suggest that abortion be rare. To say so implies a value judgement, promoting the idea that abortion is somehow distasteful or immoral and should be avoided.”

That’s the first time I’ve seen a liberal use an argument conservatives have been using ever since the “legal safe rare” garbage started. If there is nothing immoral about abortion, why should it be in any way rare? Gee, lets hope cosmetic surgery is rare. This lady actually is being less hypocritcal than the “legal safe rare” crowd. Still sick, but in a different way.

I write about how important it is to make sure that every woman has access to safe, legal abortion services. I have bumper stickers and buttons and t-shirts proclaiming my support for reproductive freedom. I love abortion,” DelBalzo declares.

What does abortion have to do with reproductive freedom? Once you are in the condition where you would need an abortion (i.e. pregnant), the reproduction is over. After that it's growth and development or death.

I wonder if her mother is proud of her.

An aside here, I have a friend whose mother told her that she wish she had aborted her. (Her father wanted her to keep the baby though, so she did.) This beautiful young lady has gone through terrible emotional pain because of her mother’s thoughtless revelation, and yet, she was able to forgive her mother. My friend is now a wonderful giving mother to two adorable children herself. What a loss it would be had her mother gone through with her own selfish desires!
