When I look at the story of this young girl, at the advocacy video that she promotes, I cannot help but feel pain and sorrow for her and people like her. I honestly do not know if it is out of a lack of information, misdirection or apathy that decisions such as this are made.
The progressive talking points will lead you to believe that pro-choice empowers the woman, that endorsing abortions liberates a people and that if we embrace this concept as a nation we have completely stepped into the 21st Century.
Having multiple kids of my own, and one on the way, I cannot begin to fathom how a person can morally go through with this barbaric and inhumane act which our country is seeming to accept more and more each year.
To me this is not politics. To me this is ethics and the essence of morality. Adoption is an option. If you are not ready to have a child, abstain from sexual activity until you are ready.

When Renee Bracey Sherman was 19, she had an abortion.
And on her video for Fusion detailing what happened before, during and after, Sherman added that it was “one of the best decisions of my life.”
Sherman revealed that she was afraid to tell her family, wanting to “pretend like I wasn’t one of those girls.”
“I didn’t want to fall into society’s statistics and stereotypes,” Sherman added. “And I didn’t want to be a disappointment to my parents.”
“And I didn’t want to be a disappointment to my parents.”
While Sherman said her mother felt badly she couldn’t be at the clinic to support her, Sherman lauded her mother for giving her “all of the tools I needed to make the best decision for me.”
As for second guessing her abortion, Sherman summed up things this way: ”I haven’t once regretted it. It allowed me to change paths. It was one of the best decisions of my life. And I’m happy.”
These days Sherman is a “reproductive justice and storytelling activist who shares her own abortion experience to encourage others who have had abortions to speak out and end the silence and stigma,” Fusion noted.
