Every woman can overcome an unwanted pregnancy. Though feminists disagree, God has made women strong to do that.
Our culture believes women are too weak to overcome adversity. Feminism has convinced many women they are not strong enough to overcome unwanted pregnancies.
Feminism doesn’t empower women, it oppresses them—and it especially oppresses their babies. Misogynists cannot create a more repressive ideology for women than feminism.
Feminism, after all, suggests women—unlike men—cannot be successful unless they have the “right” to kill their unwanted babies. How is that empowering?
Women are strong enough to overcome adversity. Women are strong enough to overcome unwanted pregnancies—every woman can be just as strong as my mom.
One of my favourite stories about mom is that many years ago, she helped me move a stove from the kitchen to the basement. I was in my late-teens and she was in her mid-forties. But mom held her own—and half the weight of the stove—through every step.
I was shocked by her strength. That stove was heavy. But through sweat and pain, mom moved it with me.
But that shouldn’t have surprised me. I knew better than that—I knew mom better than that. She’s carried much heavier things in her life.
My father abandoned mom and my older brother while she was still pregnant with me, and he never returned home. He couldn’t bear the weight of an unwanted pregnancy in an unendingly bad economy in Ghana.
Unwanted pregnancies usually end in abortions in Ghana. The abortion rate in Ghana is almost 4 times higher than the abortion rate in America and Canada. Abortion is a tempting option for poor Ghanaian women who are fearful of making themselves poorer by having children. And it’s significantly more difficult for poor parents and poor children to climb out of poverty in Ghana than it is in America and Canada.
