Summer White shares a powerful video about her experiences. Read on …
There’s probably no horror on earth that compares to being sexually abused. For women like the one who wrote into the atheist website Sheologians, it was a nightmare that will take a lifetime of healing. And in a heart-wrenching email, she says that healing didn’t start at Planned Parenthood. After realizing she was pregnant from the rape, she went to the place she “had been told all her life to go when seeking help with an unplanned pregnancy.” In the message, read in a powerful video by Summer White, she said she was certain Planned Parenthood would give her all the help she needed to give her baby up for adoption. “That’s not what I found,” she writes.
After she turned in the paperwork explaining her intent, “everything changed.” She was left for an hour in the waiting room and ignored by staff. When the clinic workers finally got around to seeing her, she was strongly pressured to abort. “She kept telling me about my rights. About how empowered I would feel. How I would be taking control of my own body, and taking back what had been taken from me,” reads White. “They wouldn’t offer me an ultrasound,” she continued. “Counseling was only for those getting an abortion.” When the woman tried to get information on adoption, she was told “her baby would likely grow up to be a drug user, or a rapist. She was told that her baby, having been conceived from rape would be harder to adopt. That no one would want her baby.”
Care should be for all, especially to care and make future plans for the most vulnerable among us – the unborn. What are you doing to stand up for the voiceless?
