Abortion Begets Another Tragedy
When news broke that a 21-year-old single mom committed suicide so soon after an abortion, pro-life advocates took to social media to express heartbreak:
This is heartbreaking. We need to have real discussions about the harmful psychological side effects of abortion…. https://t.co/o7QtAK0HQH

Details about Jade Rees’ life reveal a young woman struggling with depression, previous suicide attempts, an eating disorder, and a recent breakup with a boyfriend. A suicide note suggests her abortion pushed her to the breaking point.
As predicted, the defenders of any-and-all-abortion were quick to dismiss any connection between her abortion and her suicide.
THIS RIGHT HERE is why we need to de stigmatise abortion. pic.twitter.com/XD9O5gNR9i

Apparently, the problem isn’t the killing of a preborn child. The problem is that the killing of a preborn child gets a not-so-nice label. Everyone must make sure that all post-abortive mothers and their abortionists get high fives.
And if you can’t blame the stigma, blame the songwriter.

Pro-abortion tactic: Shift focus from the abortion-suicide connection to the song the mother was listening to at the time she took her life.

Here’s a better idea. Pray for the souls of Rees and her child. Then pray for an end to abortion.
