Are you tired of all the rhetoric
“choice?” Exhausted by the
“Reproductive Rights” runaround? It is
no surprise in today’s society when a
subject as serious as abortion is masked
by creative words and catch phrases.
It’s okay to be against abortion. Not
only that—you should not be ashamed
to say it!
Being opposed to
NOT mean you’re “anti choice”, it means
you are about freedom and that you think
all existing persons—big, small, and really
small—should be allowed to enjoy it.
In the following pages, we would like
to take you beyond the tired “choice”
terminology to an enthusiastic respect
Why does the “pro-choice” side
use rhetoric to disguise the fact that
they are talking about abortion?
THE EASY WAY OUT
“Tim, I think I’m pregnant.”
It was New Year’s Eve.
My boyfriend sighed deeply, his gaze remaining fixed on the TV. He
then muttered something that made me feel already deserted. I felt a
sour lump in the back of my throat.
Yes, I was pregnant, and I was scared! I knew from firsthand experience
how tough it is raising a child as a single mother. I
already had a
2-year old daughter, Jennifer, from an earlier
When my pregnancy was confirmed,
Tim’s non-committal response to my distress and his
move to Chicago,
400 miles away, left me despondent
and convinced that abortion was the
“easy way out.” I
was already struggling
financially with one child. How
could I raise two?

A WOMAN’S “RIGHT”
Women are breaking through glass ceilings everywhere, surpassing the
number of men in colleges, law schools, and medical schools. Just look
at sports such as basketball, soccer, hockey, and wrestling. We have
come too far to reduce women’s “rights” to mean the “right to abortion.”
IT’S JUST TISSUE
Simple tissue is not bursting with the following: life, stem cells that
some researcherswould kill for, a beating heart and fingerprints, and
enough DNA to fill five sets (not volumes) of Encyclopedia Britannica
if the micro-miniature language was enlarged to standard-sized print.
A “WANTED” CHILD
Does your value depend on the degree that someone wants you? Let’s be
honest— a child is a child. How could any baby be called unwanted when
there are over one million couples waiting, hoping, and praying for a
chance to adopt a child?
Many young women believed this until it was too late. The book, Lime 5,
documents over 200 cases of women injured or killed by legal, so-called
“safe” abortions. With the end result being an aborted baby; the
potential for cervical cancer and the possibility of
becoming infertile—where’s the safe part?
Their Own Words:
Former Abortionists and Clinic Staff Speak
“We were told to find the woman’s weakness and work on it. The
women were never given any alternatives. They were told how much
trouble it was to have a baby.”

Clinic Staff“Meet the Abortion Providers”
“But I think the greatest thing that got to us was the ultrasound… The
baby really came alive on TV and was moving… That picture of the baby
on the ultrasound bothered me more than anything else… We lost two
nurses. They couldn’t take looking at it.”

DAY 1 FERTILIZATION
The sperm joins with the ovum to form one cell. This
one cell contains the complex genetic makeup for every detail of a new
human life—the child’s sex, hair and eye color, height, skin tone, etc.
From that moment on nothing new is added but oxygen, nutrition and time.1
The first cell divides in two and cell division
continues as the newly formed individual travels down
the fallopian tube to the uterus. Over 500 cells are
present when this tiny embryo (the blastocyst)
reaches the uterus 7 to 10 days after
Foundations of the brain, spinal cord and nervous system are already established, and on day 21 the heart

common for women to experience guilt, depression, feelings of being
“dirty,” resentment of men, and

Abortion only adds to and accentuates
the traumatic feelings associated with sexual assault.
DeZeeuw, whose son Patrick was conceived in rape when she was 16, writes: “I,
having lived through rape, and
also having raised a child ‘conceived in rape’ feel personally assaulted and insulted every time I
hear that abortion should be
legal because of rape and incest. I feel that we’re being used by pro-abortionists to further the
abortion issue though we’ve not
been asked to tell our side of the story.”

victim of incest, writes
