On Thursday, Democrat Rep. Cori Bush went on MSNBC to share her abortion story publicly for the first time this fall to try to persuade Americans to support legalized full-term abortion on demand.
Life News reports:
In an interview with Vanity Fair, the Missouri congresswoman said her abortion “was the beginning of a very, very dark period … the darkest period of my life.”
Yet, Bush told MSNBC that she once opposed abortion, but now she supports it and believes there is an “urgent need” to expand abortions across the U.S.
“I am not ashamed,” Bush wrote on Twitter. She and other pro-abortion lawmakers plan to advocate for abortion on demand Thursday during a House Oversight Committee hearing titled, “Examining the Urgent Need to Protect and Expand Abortion Rights and Access in the United States.”
After she says she was raped she went to get an abortion. She said the staff treated her badly.
“She was almost angry. The way she was speaking to me, it was very belittling and degrading. I didn’t know why she was directing all of that onto me,” Bush told Vanity Fair. “I felt like I wasn’t given an opportunity to make a decision.”
She said the abortion made her feeling numb “for quite a while. That was the beginning of a very, very dark period … That was the darkest period of my life.”
Her story presents such a stark contrast to those shared by other rape survivors who chose life for their babies. Paula Peyton, for example, said her son’s life, though conceived in a brutal rape, has brought her “overwhelming joy.” Jennifer Christie, another mother who chose life after becoming pregnant to rape, said her son is a child of God, not a “rapist’s baby,” and it should not be considered amazing or unusual to refuse to kill an unborn baby just because circumstances are bad.
