Emily Letts is the worst kind of pro-choicer

For those who don’t know who Emily Letts is, she is the young woman who set out to document her “positive” abortion story.  She filmed herself before, during — yes, during — and after her abortion to show us all how great the whole experience can be.  So why do I say Emily is the worst kind pro-choicer?  Here’s her own words:

I feel in awe of the fact that I can make a baby. I can make a life. I knew what I was doing was right because it was right for me, and no one else.

Did you catch it?  Most defenders and advocates of elective abortion argue for the right to abort based on some ignorance about the ontological status of what it is that’s being aborted.  They mistakenly claim the embryo/fetus isn’t a living human being.  The sciences of embryology and biology assert differently.  However, it seems Emily already knows this.  She realizes she made a baby, she knows she made a life.  Having that realization and still choosing abortion out of pure convenience is not only incredibly selfish, it’s nothing short of evil.  She just “wasn’t ready for a baby”.

Does that sound harsh to call her evil?  I don’t think so.  I suppose one could argue for a pass for mothers who don’t realize their abortion is taking the life of a living baby — even though I think it’s innately known that what is in the womb is a living baby.  But for the benefit of the doubt, I guess we could say they just don’t know any better.  But she does.

Emily valued her social and professional life over the life of her baby.  She took the necessary measures to maintain her sexual liberty (sex without consequence) and level of comfort in her own life at the cost of her baby’s.  That is what makes her evil, that is what makes her the worst kind of pro-choicer.  She knew what she was doing, eyes wide open.

Comments

  1. I recall one woman I knew (she has since unfriended me *L*) who defended abortion, including her own, on the basis that the fetus is not a person, because you can’t have two persons in one body. Basically, it didn’t matter what anyone claimed about the humanity of the fetal child; it did not have personhood, therefore it there was nothing wrong with killing it.

    This from a feminist, who seems to have forgotten that women were once not considered persons under the law, and were therefore denied voting rights, or that black people, free or slave, were not considered persons under the law, therefore it was legal to restrict basic human rights and even kill them.

    • Didnt she realise its not 2 persons in one body, but 2 persons in 2 separate distinct bodies?

      • She simply reduced it to the statement of it not being possible to have two persons in one body. In past conversations, I don’t recall her ever trying to deny that the fetal child was human, or genetically unique. All I could figure out is that she denied personhood, based on location.

        • Personhood…the ever evolving qualifier. The reason some of the proabortion crowd hang their hat on personhood is because they can add and remove criteria depending on who theyre considering. Its so subjective that they can move the goal posts whenever they want and they still feel justified.

  2. “…to show women that there is such a thing as a positive abortion story.”

    I think that’s as telling as anything. Can’t we just talk to any number of women who have had abortions? Isn’t abortion supposed to always be a positive choice for the woman who choses it? Why would she have to show that there is such a thing?

  3. WideAwakeChristian says:

    “Emily valued her social and professional life over the life of her baby.” But what about her own life? Research shows a 44% increased chance of breast cancer after an abortion, after a second abortion that chance increases to 76%. Would Emily have even considered the words “positive experience” had she known the facts?

  4. It’s a permanent “solution” to temporary FEELINGS. You’re pregnant. “CRAP!!” is usually the first thought, unless you’re trying to have kids. “Now what?” is usually the second. “This is going to change my life” the third. THEN you make plans.

    This woman is a narcissist! HER life is so perfect… Her prospects (without a child) are SO promising that killing the life inside her is a “no-brainer”!

    And then she has the audacity to document it on film! TO SHOW US how wonderful it is that HER wonderful life won’t be interrupted!

    The GAUL on this one! Sheesh!

  5. I have a prediction that I will not share. If I’m right, I may bring it up to you guys. I hope I’m not right. I’m going to pray that what I expect will not come to pass. Suffice it to say that everything I’ve heard about and from Letts leads me to believe that she has serious issues. She has created some strange realities in her mind. Realities that will inevitably have to come into some actual congruence with the real reality most of us already live in.

    Dear God, help her!
