Dr. Alvada King has a good question:
Dr. Alveda King, a pro-life advocate who is the niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., said that abortion providers would not appreciate being forced to make disclosures similar to those being asked of crisis pregnancy centers.
“We help women, and we help babies,” she told CNA. “Why don't the abortion clinics put up signs, saying 'We kill babies, we often hurt mothers, and our clinics are unregulated and often not up to good standards'? Why don't they put up those signs?”
I think that's an excellent question. In fact, I have the wording for a sign I think should be required, by law, to be placed in every abortion butchery in the nation--in red, below:
Notice: This is an abortion clinic. We do not want you to choose life, as we will then lose the $350-$1000 we would otherwise make by killing your unborn child. We will not counsel you to choose life. We will not ask you if you are sure you want the abortion or if you have considered adoption for your baby. Rather, we will insist that your baby is a clump of tissue. We may tell you the following things, all of which are false after the sixth week of gestation:
- that your baby does not have a heartbeat
- that your baby is simply "a few cells" in size
- that your baby does not yet have a head, arms, or legs
- that your baby can't yet move in the uterus
- that there is no difference between your baby and an animal embryo
In fact, we will never use the words "child" or "baby" except in extremely negative contexts. Rather, we will say "cells," "the pregnancy," "the embryo," or, perhaps, "the fetus." We will imply that whatever is inside you, it has nothing to do with those images of unborn babies you sometimes see.
We will not provide you with an ultrasound of your baby unless the state requires it. We will not tell you about fetal development or your baby's gestational age and development unless the state requires it. Even if the state requires it we may fail to meet state requirements; we will definitely encourage you to sign away your rights to see such images or to hear about your baby's development as state laws generally permit, on the grounds that it interferes with your "choice" to think for even a moment that you are carrying a living human being inside your body.
You are carrying a living human being inside of you, and your abortion will end the life of the developing human being inside of you. He or she will likely be either dismembered alive and removed, shredded alive via a suction device, poisoned to death and delivered, or simply delivered alive and left to expire. You will not cease to be a mother via this abortion, as you will remain the mother of a dead human child. If you are having an abortion because you are poor, addicted to drugs or alcohol, or in a bad relationship, you should be aware that after the abortion you will still be poor, addicted, or stuck with the kind of jerk who doesn't want children. Abortion will not solve any of your present problems and may create future ones. If you are unhappy about your abortion, your abortionist does not offer any money-back or other guarantees, as once he has killed your child he doesn't give an expletive deleted about what happens to you, and isn't about to refund any of your cash, most of which is conveniently untraceable by government taxing authorities.
Our clinic is not in the business of helping clients straighten out their lives after their abortions. In fact, we hope you will continue to make the kind of choices that lead to unplanned and unwanted pregnancy; repeat business is good for our bottom line. Unlike many crisis pregnancy centers, we will not help you finish your education, find a job, or learn the kind of life skills you will need to be a good and responsible parent. We would rather keep you in a state of perpetual irresponsibility so you will continue to need our services.
If you expect us to care about you as a person, to offer you life counseling or any other form of compassion--get over yourself. We kill human babies for a living, and we're proud of it. That should tell you something about what kind of people we are.
I think we should start requiring abortion clinics, by law, to post that or some similar notice. At least then the crisis pregnancy centers wouldn't be the only ones in the position of having to advertise what they don't do.
