A feminist blogger has created a massive uproar by detailing her decision to kill her male child in an article entitled “I Aborted My Baby – Because it was a Boy“. She initially believed that she was going to have a girl, and she was making all sorts of plans for her future. But when an ultrasound showed that it was going to be a boy, she decided that she must have an abortion because she “couldn’t bring another monster into the world”. And she says that she would do it again “if the curse returns”. So what would cause a woman to want to kill her own child just because it is a boy? How twisted has feminism in America become if this is the result?
You can read her entire article right here. A lot of people that have read it have become extremely angry, but personally it makes me very sad. We will never know what that young boy could have become. We will never know what gifts he could have shared with the world. He will never love and be loved. And it is all because of a very selfish and cruel decision by his mother.
So is this what the “right to choose” is all about? When this young mother initially believed that she was going to have a girl, she was filled with joy…
“As spring turned into summer and my belly started to grow, my mind ran wild with the thoughts of teaching my daughter from a young age tolerance and feminist ideals. Choosing the right all-girls daycare, then elementary school, all so that she could grow up and thrive in an environment where women are told that they can do anything that they want to do. No man will be around to hurt her progress, no boys there to demean her or call her names.”
But then one day she went in for an ultrasound, and her joy turned into utter despair…
“I was in shock, I started crying, weeping at the thought of what I was about to curse the world with.”
To many people, this kind of radical feminism seems extremely bizarre. But the truth is that this is what they are teaching our young women at colleges and universities all over the nation. For much more on the state of our institutions of higher learning, please see my article from the other day.
Getting back to the story, it only took a couple of days for this young mother to decide to have an abortion…
“By the third day, I started regaining some of my mental strength and knew what I had to do. I couldn’t bring another monster into the world. We already have enough enemies as it is.”
And after she had her son killed, she felt really great about it. In fact, she feels like she did “something that would actually make a difference” in the world…
“A few days later, I went in for the procedure, as it was fairly later in my pregnancy, I was aware there were certain risks, but it went off without a hitch. My body’s betrayal was no more, I was free, and for the first time since the airplane incident, I felt strong. I had done something positive, something that would actually make a difference, something good, even though as I would find out, many others wouldn’t see it that way.”
So does she have any regrets after all this time?
Not at all…
“If the curse returns, I would do the exact same thing all over again.”
Needless to say, there was a huge backlash against her article. People were absolutely outraged that any mother would choose to do such a thing…
Later, Lana said she was shocked at the public’s response to her blog posting, claiming she had even received death threats.“I cannot believe some of the emails that have been forwarded to me,” she wrote in a follow-up post. “[D]o people really exist who want to see me dead because of what I chose to do with my own body? Those are the minds of mentally disturbed individuals … I suspect that many of you reading this will be the kind of people who are sending emails from their mom’s basement, leaving comments on here and on social media websites as you degrade mentally more and more while sitting on your crusty computer chairs. Do everyone a favor: GROW UP!”
In reality, this abortion is not really any different from the tens of millions of other abortions that have been performed in America since Roe vs. Wade was decided in 1973.
Everyone that gets an abortion has a “reason” for getting one done. This mother’s reason may seem a bit more outrageous than others, but the end result of any abortion is always a murdered baby.
So how does a women get to the point where she gleefully has her baby put to death just because it is a male?
Well, the truth is that the cultural forces shaping this woman’s decisions go back a long, long way. The following is an excerpt from a recent Infowars article…
This diabolical “us vs. them” mentality pushed by today’s so-called feminists highlights how feminism has transformed from a genuine women’s rights movement in the late 19th century into a top-down tool of social control steered by the CIA and other powerful interests to make women more dependent on the government while breaking up the traditional family model.
Simply put, people generally hold more allegiance to their own families than they do the state, so what better way to destroy families than to corrupt feminism into an “us vs. them” movement pitting women against men?
A leading icon of the feminist movement, Gloria Steinem, even admitted she received funding from the CIA and the Rockefeller foundation to influence the counter-culture movement in the 1960s.
The minds of our young people are literally being poisoned, and it is going to get even worse the farther we plunge down the cultural toilet.
We have been taught that it is normal to kill our own babies, and since 1973 more than 50 million Americans have been killed this way.
What should be done to a nation that does such a thing?
What kind of judgment do we deserve?
For many, abortion is an “old issue”. But there is nothing that could ever lessen the importance of this ongoing holocaust. The following numbers are from my previous article entitled “19 Facts About Abortion In America That Should Make You Very Sick“…
#1 There have been more than 53 million abortions performed in the United States since Roe v. Wade was decided back in 1973.
#2 When you total up all forms of abortion, including those caused by the abortion drug RU 486, the grand total comes to more than a million abortions performed in the United States every single year.
#3 The number of American babies killed by abortion each year is roughly equal to the number of U.S. military deaths that have occurred in all of the wars that the United States has ever been involved in combined.
#4 Approximately 3,000 Americans lost their lives as a result of the destruction of the World Trade Center towers on 9/11. Every single day, more than 3,000 American babies are killed by abortion.
#5 It has been reported that a staggering 41 percent of all New York City pregnancies end in abortion.
#6 According to Pastor Clenard Childress, approximately 52 percent of all African-American pregnancies now end in abortion.
#7 One very shocking study found that 86 percent of all abortions are done for the sake of convenience.
#8 According to the Guttmacher Institute, the average cost of a first trimester abortion at the ten week mark is $451.
#9 The average cost of a vaginal birth with no complications in the United States is now over $9,000.
#10 A Department of Homeland Security report that was released in January 2012 says that if you are “anti-abortion”, you are a potential terrorist. Unfortunately, there have also been other government reports that have also identified “anti-abortion” protesters as potential threats.

So yes, we should be horrified that a young mother has decided to abort her baby because it was male.
But every single abortion is a great tragedy.
Let us never forget that.
