A woman who is targeting pregnancy centers, which endeavor to help women understand the tragedy of murdering their babies in the womb, published a piece at Romper.com stating that she wished she had aborted her son, who is now 15, because of the struggle she’s had as a single mother to support him.
Cherisse Scott, the founder of Sisterreach, who appeared on TBS’ Full Frontal with Samantha Bee in 2016, saying, “if I could do this all over again, I would have an abortion,” wrote the piece at Romper. In her piece, Scott states, “My son deserved to be born to a mother who would not be left hanging to raise him alone. He deserved to be born into a social infrastructure willing to provide his mother with the necessary social supports to live, and to do so without stigma or shame.” She writes she was “intentionally misled” by a pregnancy center and is “still affected by their lie.” She makes it clear that she’s pursuing pregnancy centers, stating, “As things currently stand for women with unwanted pregnancies, the operation manual for crisis pregnancy centers (CPCs) is to shame, misinform, and intimidate you into continuing the pregnancy. … They are run and financed by anti-abortion extremists who deceive and manipulate vulnerable women and girls to stop them from getting an abortion.”
And then, of course, an attack on the religious underpinnings of those who wish to see babies live: “Worse, these imposters have the unmitigated gall to do such trickery in the name of Jesus. …”
Scott claims that she was shown “graphic abortion procedure videos,” then sent for an ultrasound and told if she “had an abortion, I would not be able to have another child.” She asserts that the pregnancy center “sent me home with a bottle, a onesie, and a rattle. To date, that is the last support of any kind I ever received from them. When I lost my job, not even a year after my son was born, then had to navigate accessing food stamps and help getting child support, they were nowhere to be found.”
This doesn’t jive with the true reputation of pregnancy centers, as Jay Hobbs of pregnancyhelpnews.com has written.
Making it clear she is an abortion activist, Scott spouts, “These fake clinics use their your tax dollars to con women, especially poor women, and push their ideological agenda while the Hyde Amendment continues to deny insurance coverage for abortion for women enrolled in Medicaid.”
Scott writes, “For most women and girls of color, informed by the American legacy of abandonment faced by our children left in both private and federally funded child protective care, we would rather keep our babies and figure it out, or end our pregnancies as an act of love to save our children from probable suffering.”
“Save our children from probable suffering?” By dismembering them before they are born?
