April has been officially been declared “Abortion Wellbeing Month” by the liberal group Exhale, so that women who have had abortions can take a few steps back and recognize wellbeing.
According to the DailyCaller, four years ago the group made the declaration as a way to raise awareness about encouraging wellness for women who have had an abortion.
The group self-describes itself as the “premiere organization addressing the emotional health and wellbeing of women and men after abortion. They’re also huge advocates for those who have had an abortion to be open about it rather than trying to hide their actions.
Aspen Baker, who founded the group and is the executive director, said in a statement that “Understanding the whole picture of abortion in our lives is significant for our health and wellness after abortion.”
“Each of us is more than just one person with our own thoughts and feelings — we are members of our families and communities.”
Trying to rationalize the act doesn’t make it any less reprehensible.
It continued, “We’re in relationships. We experience nature. We share faith and spiritual beliefs. And abortion, while an event that happens in our body, is connected to so much more of who we are and what we believe in the world.”
The Caller reports that the group is trying to embrace the feelings of both men and women post-abortion, which they claim can be anything from sadness and loss to happiness and joy.
Explaining why they declared April “Abortion Wellness Month,” the group says on its website that “This month brings us together, across our diverse abortion experiences, with our common need for understanding and wellbeing. We ask that our friends and family be there when we need them, without judgment and without blame.”
Perhaps the most disturbing aspect of the group and its website is a poem that it’s promoting about the feelings that people have after going through with an abortion.
The poem is titled “After an Abortion” and here’s what it says:
Its okay to think you killed your baby
Its okay to feel like you have a second chance at life
Its okay to feel empowered
It okay to feel grief
Its okay to think you made the best choice
Its okay to think you made the worst choice
Its okay to be neutral
Its okay to cry
Its okay to laugh
Its okay to dance
Its okay to need to call a friend
Its okay to keep it a secret
Its okay to be sad
and both, at the same time
Its okay to not know how you feel
Its okay to take care of yourself, even if you don’t think you deserve it
Its okay if this is your third abortion
Its okay if its your first
Its okay if you’re a mom
Its okay if you plan to be a mom one day
Every emotion one could possibly have after an abortion makes sense, and there are many other women who guaranteed feel the same way.
