Life Alliance

Where labels end and conversation begins

The “A” Word By, Deedee Dorrington

If my friend is reading this, I want to thank her. While at first glance, she may think I’m upset with her, I’m not. She gave me the gift of an even greater insight to one of our biggest obstacles when trying to educate people about abortion. 

We were discussing Life Alliance in a generic conversation. Her comment which took me by surprise was when she said we would not mention the “A-word,” if we were to move forward with our collaboration. 

I know my face showed a small level of shock and confusion as we moved past the moment, but her words were left resonating within. 

Talking about abortion is never easy, we all know this... but why are (most) people afraid to discuss this topic? Or even mention the word?

We are at a pivotal point in time...what was once to be considered a rare procedure and saved for extreme circumstances, has now taken the direction of infanticide. 

Millions of lives have been lost, many babies have died tortuous deaths, and millions of women have been emotionally destroyed by the abortion industry. 

Now is the exact time we need talk about this. 

Say the word...”abortion.”
