An abortion activist who posted pictures of her abortion online has said prayer can be interpreted as hatred, Catholics who are “ashamed” of their church are “inspirational,” and “the very existence of the conservatives” is a fact to be lamented.
Earlier this month the activist, who goes by the name “Jane Young,” posted pictures of what she purports is her own abortion on her website, thisismyabortion.com. The move brought her infamy among those who care for the unborn, gratitude in the pro-abortion movement, and attention on every side.
In an interview with Vice.com, she said after a story about her stunt “was featured on the front page of catholic.org and on some apparently frequented pro-life blogs….staunch Christian emails surfaced and the hate mail began popping up.”
She noted the content of numerous “hate” e-mails was some variant of the message: “Maybe you do not know God or that abortion is a sin? Praying for you!”
“Even hearing that someone is ‘praying for me,’ in this context, feels demeaning and threatening. There’s already plenty of hatred and fear-mongering out there for people to encounter,” she said.
