Yet one thing these 4 women have in common? None has repented their abortions. None are religious, despite each of them supposedly believing in God and identifying as Christian. They think it was just something they did - a long time ago, that had no bearing on their soul, their life, or their trajectory other than to save them from some kind of unmarried mother hell.
You could probably sit down with all 4 of these women, and get nowhere with an argument that they should see themselves as murderers because life begins at conception. They were willing to make that bargain with the devil then, and would probably do so again. I seriously believe that. They leave religion at the door of the Church when (and if) they attend, which isn't often.
It's what I call funcitonal atheism. You can call youself a Christian all you want, but if you only live by Christian principals when it suits you, your belief in God is more something you wear like a hat. And that's not really belief.
So it seems to me, while there are certainly securalists who are pro-life (a great article is here, A Secular Case Against Abortion) - selfishness is such that there are still women who would throw a live baby out of a train before they'd allow it to "ruin" their life - and sadly, in the case of at least 2 of the 4 women I've mentioned, I think they'd probably resort to that if they thought they had to.
I do feel sorry for such women, though. Whether they ended up having "successful" I-Me-My careers or just being washed-up lonely women, I don't think they can escape the underlying realization that they've been selfish and shallow.
Many post-abortion women do repent, and they are as precious as gold. God gives them new hearts. But the ones who say it's "nothing" to them and keep denying the inner truth of it all, are well and truly dead.
