    Elaine Baijal, a 19-year-old student at American University, said her mother told her of coming to a march for legal abortion with her own mother in the 1970s. “It’s sad that we still have to fight for our right 40 years later. But it’s a tradition I want to continue,” Baijal said of the march.

    A tradition handed down from mother to daughter, heartwarming stuff.

    In Springfield, Illinois, several hundred people rallied on the Old State Capitol square. Prominent among them were the Illinois Handmaids, wearing red robes and white bonnets reminiscent of the subjugated women of Margaret Atwood’s novel “The Handmaid’s Tale” and carrying signs that said, “Mind Your Own Uterus” and “Mother By Choice.”

    Subjugated women of the 21st century:

    Almost ten years ago now, a fellow pro-life activist told me a horrifying story. A woman in Vancouver, she said, had gone to an abortion facility and aborted her baby because the pregnancy interfered with a planned vacation, and she didn’t want to look pregnant in her bathing suit in the vacation pictures. It was one of those anecdotes of such breathtaking selfishness and cruelty that it sticks with you always. Is that a common reason for seeking an abortion? No. But the fact that it happened showed just how corrosive and corrupting an abortion culture truly is.

    I was reminded of that story again this week when I read in The Telegraph that the U.K.-based organization Christian Concern had hired investigators to place calls to Marie Stopes and the British Pregnancy Advisory Service — the U.K.’s two main abortion providers — to determine how easy it was to procure abortion pills. One of the activists stated that she didn’t want to keep her baby because she was worried about what pregnancy would do to her “bikini body.”

    As it turned out, any reason for an abortion was a good reason — Christian Concern’s CEO, Andrea Williams, noted that its investigation revealed “that women could get these pills using any excuse whatsoever. One of them even said that it didn’t bode well for her having a bikini body, and that was put down as an emotional reason.”……

    Not so long ago, that would be considered shocking. But as I’ve noted before, today’s abortion activists are made of sterner stuff than their queasier (or more strategic) foremothers, and they’ve never met an abortion they can’t clap for. Reid scoffed at the idea that someone aborting their child for a “bikini body” is a problem………

    “Rachel” says that fundamentally, she “just didn’t want to have a baby.” When “Nadia” was asked why she wanted an abortion, she, too, says she “just didn’t want a baby.” Their words are nearly identical, and they reveal something vicious and ugly about our culture. These young women knew that getting an abortion was about getting rid of their babies. You’ll notice that they didn’t even bother talking about getting rid of the pregnancy, or eliminating a “clump of cells,” or exercising their “reproductive freedom.” They wanted freedom, all right — freedom from the baby they knew already existed. After all, if there had been no baby, what would they have been aborting?

    It is true that most women do not have abortions simply because they want to look good on the beach. It is also true that many have abortions because they feel trapped, or abused, or terrified. But as Rebecca Reid and her vampiric fellow feminists will tell you, none of that matters.

    What I can’t get my head around is that there has been alternatives to abortion that prevent the formation of the child in the first place. Off the top of my head you could use:
    *The “pill”
    *Spermidical lubricants
    *Morning after pill
    and probably a lot more things I’m unaware of. Or, and this is a radical idea, celibacy; Don’t have sex until your married to your husband. That’s an even easier way. If blokes did the same, problem solved.

    But Planned Parenthood needs the foetuses. For stuff. And things.
