Abortion as the ultimate liberal sacrament

I don’t remember who said that abortion was the sacrament of of the hardcore feminist.

CMR has this.  This is … hard.

Many have long remarked that abortion is the Left’s one and only sacrament.

Abby Johnson tells a story
from her Planned Parenthood days that proves the point while being shocking and disgusting. A Doctor told a crying patient, upset over what she was about to do, ” I will take on your sin.”

About 3 months before I left Planned Parenthood, we had a young woman in the clinic who I had counseled before her abortion. She was very noticeably upset about having an abortion. I questioned her and encouraged her to go home and think about her decision. She was insistent…this abortion must happen today. This is what she wanted. She was just emotional, she said. She asked if I would be in the room with her to hold her hand during the procedure. I was happy to do that for people I counseled…especially those that were nervous or upset.

We got her in the room, I sat down beside her, got her blood pressure cuff on, and the sedation was given. But the sedation didn’t make much difference. She cried even harder. So hard she was shaking and her body was moving off the table. The doctor entered the room in the usual manner. He was about to sit down on his stool and realized she was very upset.

Then he did something that left me speechless. He walked over to her and stood next to my chair. He took her hand and began talking to her. “Why the tears?” he said. “I just feel really guilty about doing this,” she responded. He asked her why she felt guilty. She said, “Because I just know this is a sin.” He paused for a minute and looked at her…he was looking at her so carefully…so cautiously…I had never seen one of our doctors treat a patient like this before. He smiled gently at her and said, “No. It is not your sin. It is mine. I will take on your sin. I commit the sin. Not you.”Now playing Jesus, the guy with the wire hanger.

Their one and only sacrament indeed.

Sorry.  I have to leave the combox closed on this.
