This Woman Is Free

I am a woman.

I am not unequal or unfree if I lose the right to kill my unborn children. I do not need the right to kill in order to be equal to men.

If I did need that right:

wouldn’t it mean that I am intrinsically not equal?

wouldn’t it mean I must become exactly like a man to be equal to men?

What if I value not being a killer of my own children over becoming equal to a man?

Shouldn’t I value that more?

I am a woman who has never killed my child. I am a woman who will never choose to kill my children. Yet I am equal to a man. God created women as equal to men; it is modern feminists who try to persuade us that we are lesser to men so that we will buy into their power struggle.

You  may have heard that women are seen as lesser in the Bible but I challenge you to find that. In Scripture, men and women are different and complementary but equally free and equally valuable.

Without availing myself of the right to kill my offspring, I am, and have always been, as valuable and as free as any man.

If I were to perceive of myself as victim, or oppressed, or inhibited, or not free, because my right to kill the unborn may be infringed, I would live in a prison of my own making.

I do not need the right to kill my children in order to be equal or free. I am already equal and free.
