When it came to sexual abuse ~ women rose together and #metoo was born. It felt powerful and it was . Men in 'powerful' positions were threatened ~ some even came crashing down.
"A woman feels her power when her voice is being heard" Karen Drucker
How can we shut women's voice's down? How can we take their power? What are they so ashamed of, they won't ban together, numbering in the millions? Abortion.
One out of four woman - 1 out of 4 women have had an abortion! Brené Brown researches shame - she found that secrecy and silence keep shame thriving. Meaning, the more we talk openly about abortion, the shame factor can lessen. But boy, shame tempts us to keep silent. While we sit in silence, men in powerful positions are taking advantage of our silence, they're taking advantage of the shame we feel and manipulating it to breed more shame!
Wether or not you had to face this choice, someone you know, sits in silence, in shame. For the women who have had to face this choice, my heart goes out to you. No one can explain the complexity a woman goes through before she makes a choice to abort. And, for the women who have faced this choice and kept the baby - that was designed for you as well, not to swell into pride and righteousness, but to realize that, at the very least, you had the freedom to make a safe choice. Not just for the fetus, but for the mom and for life after birth.
Pro-life isn't just about a fetus, it's about everyone's LIFE involved. It's about being able to make a choice that was designed for you to make. That your life, and voice and choice matter, that you are free to make that choice! Pro-Life is Prochoice!
