Raped at 12, still deeply wounded

Abort67 leader and student

The Genocide Awareness Project at Oakland University.

by Jacqueline Hawkins

She was raped at age 12.  She was told she would die if she carried the baby.  So the young girl aborted.

Now a student at Oakland University, she peppered Mark Williams of CBR United Kingdom with questions.  Lots of questions.

As they spoke, she opened up about her life.  She grew up poor with an alcoholic mother and an absent father.  Today she is a prostitute to make ends meet.

Mark saw how she had been deeply wounded in life, and how her pro-abortion stance was all she could trust.  After all, it had gotten her out of a very difficult situation before, perhaps when nothing else could.  (Not really, but that’s how she saw it.)

Mark told her how Jesus had helped him through many personal trials and asked to pray for her.  By the end of the conversation, Mark sensed that her heart and mind were changing.  He asked if she viewed abortion differently, after their discussion.  The young woman said she did; she even understood why we display abortion images.

As a result of this experience and many others, Mark noted that in America, while pro-aborts may start with an outburst of vitriol, there is often an openness that is not so common on the streets of London.

Perhaps because Americans are less inclined to keep a “stiff upper lip,” Mark was able to see how deeply hurt, abused, unloved, and rejected so many pro-aborts feel.  They confirmed it in a way he rarely sees in the UK.

    I don’t I agree with the comparison with London. Certainly there are areas of London, and the country in general it seems where there appears to be a greater hardness of hearts but other times/places, a greater openness to actually think through the issue of abortion. Brighton is one of the hardest places in the country I imagine to do our displays and we have met some very angry women who told us they do not regret their abortion – yet – when Pauline (who had an abortion years ago) comes along side them, in no time at all, they have completely opened up, are usually in tears and hugging her before they go away, that hardness broken and hopefully the beginning of healing. I don’t think America and the UK/London are so different.
