The abortion industry is fueled by our self-centered society. We have turned away from biblical principles that tell us to put others first and instead have listened to too many “motivational speakers” who insist that “self-love” is the key to happiness.
The “my needs first” attitude is exactly what encourages women to seek abortion in the first place, and Alyssa Milano’s recent abortion confession on an episode of her podcast, aptly named “Sorry Not Sorry,” is a shocking example.
Back in 1993, Milano says, she had two abortions. That’s two innocent lives taken in just one year. This is something that would devastate most mothers even after 26 years, but not Milano.
The Daily Wire reports:
Despite being on the birth control, Milano admitted that she still got pregnant, which caused a great deal of emotion in her due to her Catholic background. She did know, however, that she was “not equipped to be a mother and so I chose to have an abortion. I chose. It was my choice. And it was absolutely the right choice for me.”
Milano admitted that the choice to obtain an abortion was not “something I wanted” but rather “something that I needed — like most healthcare is.” After the first abortion, Milano went back on the pill and resumed her sexual relationship again, which resulted in yet another pregnancy.
“A few months later I found out I was pregnant again,” she said. “Once again I made the right decision to end the pregnancy.”
“I would not have my children — my beautiful, perfect, loving, kind [and] inquisitive children — who have a mother who was so very, very ready for them,” she continued. “Fifteen years after that first love had fizzled, my life would be completely lacking all its great joys. I would never had been free to be myself — and that’s what this fight is all about: freedom.”
Clearly, Milano did not regard her Catholic background with importance enough to practice abstinence from premarital sex, which has the magical ability to prevent pregnancies with a 100% success rate, but I digress.
Milano’s nonchalant, “me first” attitude is disturbing and truly reflects the attitude of the 21st century. She claims she didn’t “want” to get the abortions but rather that she“needed” them. This is a fallacy that she and many, many other women utilize to quell the guilt that naturally follows selfishly taking the life of an innocent human being, and not just any human being, but their own child. She didn’t “need” an abortion. She wanted to get one because having to be responsible for another life wasn’t something that fit her lifestyle at the time.
Killing a baby in the womb is not justified simply because its mother wants to maintain her lifestyle. Women fool themselves into thinking they “aren’t equipped” to be mothers so they “need” to have an abortion. The truth is, very, very few people are truly “equipped” to be parents, but we learn, we adapt, and we grow. You know, like an adult. Instead, women like Milano want to be able to continue to live their independent lives without having to sacrifice their careers, their social lives, or their own bodies on behalf of another human.
The “need” for abortion is a fallacy.
Milano did speak some truth, however inadvertently, when she said this “fight” is all about “freedom.” Pro-abortion women are fighting to maintain the freedom to behave in whatever way that brings them the most “joy.”
What a tragedy that women are so deceived into thinking that children will ruin their joy and steal their freedom. Nothing could be further from the truth! Ask any mother you know what brings them the most joy and you could bet good money they would all say it is their children.
What’s even more tragic is that young girls are following Milano’s example. With vile statements like these, she is telling them it’s OK to put yourself first, sometimes you just “need” to have an abortion, and sometimes you just “need” to have your own child murdered in order to live your best life. She is leading women down a dark, wicked path of regret and shame.
Alyssa Milano needs our prayers. She needs to find the precious light of Jesus Christ. And so do all the other millions of women who have been or sadly will be so hurt by the lie of abortion. Don’t forget them in your prayers as we continue to engage in this massive spiritual battle to end the mass slaughter of unborn babies.
