NorthrupbookChristiane Northrup, former abortionist, on why life is too valuable to ban abortion [1]:

“The bond between mother and child is the most intimate bond in human experience. In this most primary of human relationships, love, welcome, and receptivity should be present in abundance. Forcing a woman to bear and raise a child against her will is therefore an act of violence. It constricts and degrades the mother – child bond and sows the seeds of hatred rather than love. … Life is too valuable to inhibit its full blossoming and potential by forcing a woman to bear it against her will.”

Is banning abortion an act of violence? Or is performing an abortion an act of violence? Look at pictures of abortions at 10 weeks, still in the first trimester, within the time when most abortions are performed. Would preventing these abortions be “violence”?
