NY Times’ wedding announcement details a couple’s abortion

                                                         Udonis Haslem and Faith Rein

The pro-abort camp has sunk to a new low in its well-orchestrated effort to eliminate the “stigma” of abortion. A story in the Sept. 1 print edition of the  New York Times “Weddings/Celebrations” section included information about the couple’s abortion in 2002, when they were deeply in love but too deeply involved in their respective athletic careers to let their child live.

 Udonis Haslem, now of the NBA’s Miami Heat, and Faith Rein, became a couple in May 2001. A year later, she became pregnant. She was a junior at college, he was a senior.

 From the story:

 “Despite the pregnancy, she was busy with track meets and helping him complete homework. The timing was bad.

 “ ‘I am not a huge fan of abortion, but we both had sports careers, plus we could not financially handle a baby,’ said Haslem, noting how he struggled with supporting Kedonis, the son he had in high school, who is now 14 and lives with his mother.”

 This next part will really tug at your heart strings. It’s Ms. Rein’s turn to speak.

 “ ‘Udonis appreciated that I was willing to have an abortion,’ Ms. Rein said. “I found him caring, supportive, nurturing and all over me to be sure I was OK. I saw another side of him during that difficult time and fell deeply in love. He had a big heart and was the whole package.’ “

 I am always amazed by how low we can sink as a society. Now a man can show his big heart by sticking around after an abortion? It’s true, that doesn’t happen much; usually the man has hightailed it while his girlfriend is still recovering in a bloody recliner in the back room of the “safe and legal” abortion mill. But honestly, should his willingness not to bolt be the measure of a man?

 Pro-aborts are ecstatic that the Times included the murder of the couple’s first child in their wedding announcement (they now have two living children together). From ThinkProgress.com: “The New York Times’ decision to include those details in a column in its prominent wedding section is a small step toward dispelling the persistent abortion stigma that’s deeply ingrained in our society.” 

Jezebel.com says the story shows that abortion is “a decision to be considered or ignored or made or nearly made by people based on their own priorities and not some imaginary standard of adulthood made by a pious, anti-choice finger-waggers (sic).”

 The Frisky, Salon, basically all the abortion-loving media sites commended the couple and the Times for courage and commitment to choice.

 But here’s another example of a media site willing to tell the truth, and I think it is much more accurate in showing exactly who is empowered by legal abortion. This post at ReturnofKings.com, written by “Bacon,” is titled “How To Convince a Girl to Get an Abortion.” It details how to talk a girlfriend or “long-term booty call” into aborting her child, and also gives advice for coercing into abortion “girls where minimal emotions were involved in the sexual relationship.”

 This advice is for the girlfriend: “… Explain if she has the abortion now, you will be able to plan your lives together so that everything is perfect. Then, after she agrees and has the abortion, dump her.”

 And this is for the hook-up: “ … Explain to her in no uncertain terms that you will not be a father to this child…. To instill the seriousness of your message, add that you will refuse any efforts in the future to include you in the child’s life.”

 This is reality for the majority of women who make the irrevocable choice to abort: A dead child and an ex-boyfriend.

 It’s not the stigma of abortion that’s the problem. Abortion is the problem.

    I’m trying to think what would cause someone to not only make such a tragic, personal decision public, but really not consider it tragic at all. I think we’ve reduced human beings to something on a list of, “I gotta get me one of these.” I also think it blows apart PP’s claim that women take the decision seriously and grapple with it morally. Forget, “no one wants to have an abortion.” Clearly some women and men could hardly care less. This is really disturbing, right up there with the people SELLING positive pregnancy tests so others can con family and friends out of $$$.

    I know we are not suppose to judge people. But you can judge their actions. I’m not making excuses for them, but it sounds like a huge, guilty, conscience has finally caught up with them and they are coming clean in public to say “forgive us”. They can try to forgive themselves first, and in private, rather than pander to any one who will think that they are the greatest people on earth.

    Lord, help them.

    What if they loved each other enough to not have sex before their marriage so they could pursue their careers.

    I hope they have grown emotionally if they want their marriage to last.
    As they have living children now it is probable they have grown.

  4. OMG…sooooo sick on so many levels. So sad! I am praying for the soul of the baby they MURDERED! Have fun with that awesome guy (GAG!) sweetie. Rather sounds like you two DESERVE each other.

  5. Mercedes Menchaca says:

    Disgusting. Desensitized narcissists. They’re unaware of their evil ways.

  6. Valerie says:

    What a twisted testimony of their relationship. Have sex, kill the child they create.. so they can enjoy themselves and live for themselves, until they are ready to keep some of the kids they make together… And they are PROUD of that??!!!! Dear God, how far society has fallen…

    I wonder if this is an effort by abortion lovers to counter the recent story of sports stars Chris Everet and Jimmy Connors’ abortion regret.

  8. Mary D. says:

    I had 2 miscarriages .
    The first was awful.Cold callus,the doctor didn’t even refer to the babys a baby ,he pregnancy she said.
    I was a lone ..the ultrsonographer said we must make sure you are “empty” .

    The 2nd miscarriage I took charge.
    I saved the remains.
    We had a graveside funeral service.and I put an obituary in the paper.

    I can’t imagine the pain of abortion.A deliberately chosen death.
    I pray he is still around when she realizes what she did.

    Thank you for publishing this very well stated opinion. I agree with you. However, it seems to me that abortion may not be the real problem, but that frivolous, extra-marital and non-committed sexual intercourse can really be blamed. Society has “progressed” to the point that emotions and covenants or promises no longer matter, but it’s all about living in the moment and doing whatever your body wants to. The one great thing that separates humankind from the rest of the animal kingdom is our consciousness, even our conscience and our ability to have and build character. Unfortunately, this property is being openly sacrificed or even ignored. Abortion is disgusting, but it would be a non-issue if people just kept their pants on.

    What is that child they killed for their own needs was going to find a cure for disease, write this generations greatest symphony, be a future president, or be the next Da Vinci! Who knows what purpose God had for that child! They didn’t care about that, only themselves.

  11. Marie says:

    I feel disgusted by this couple–but we are supposed to “hate the sin, but love the sinner.” All of these pro-abortion people are ignorant or in denial in regard to what is right and what is wrong. Whatever happened to the ideal, or the principle, of doing what is right no matter what the consequences to ourselves might be?

    My sister knew a young woman. This woman had a boyfriend she loved, and she was expecting him to marry her. One day she found out she was pregnant, and she was very excited and happy, as she believed that now they would be married. Her boyfriend persuaded her to have an abortion because it was “not the right time” to have a child. Later, he left her.

    The Liberals are trying to make abortion seem like it is okay and this is the reason for this fiasco…. They killed a living breathing human.. Period!

  13. Morgan says:

    Wow, some of you all are SO hateful! You don’t even attempt to empathize with them and the situation they were in

    • Joanna says:

      No, YOU do not understand the waste and foolishness of this situation. Could she have not had the child and put it up for adoption? Is she so busy with her life that she can’t even be bothered to save a life that someone else may want to take care of? It’s actually a good thing people like you post your thoughts publicly so that people with real sense that can see the liberal mind (if that’s what you have) and how it reasons that murder is a just and legal way to rid one of life’s inconveniences.

    • Nancy Lawrence says:

      I empathize with the child that lost his/her life. And quite honestly, I feel for them too not because they lost their child to abortion, but because they lost their child, and I don’t think they even know what that means.
