This is the Culture of Death Personified: Women Confess on Secrets App About Having 'Guilt-Free' Abortions

WARNING: The statements (in red) by women about their abortions are offensive to anyone with a conscience. The Daily Mail article contains many more.  A women who expresses no remorse after killing her unborn child has, in all likelihood, been misled and lied to. Please pray for these women and the innocent victims of abortion.

Women the world over have opened up on their abortions using the sharing app Whisper. Whisper is an online community where anonymous users share and comment on each other's secrets.

Revealing their true feelings on the termination of their pregnancies, the women's confessions varied from lack of remorse, to one woman admitting she visited a nightclub the very same day of her abortion procedure. Via Daily Mail:
I had an abortion a week ago. I don't feel the slightest bit of guilt, I even went out to a club on the same day.
I love getting pregnant but I'm not ready for kids.
Sometimes I feel guilty over the fact that I feel no guilt about my abortion.
I've had two abortions in two years. I keep waiting for the guilt to come, but so far I feel nothing.
I don't feel sorry for my abortions. It's been years and I don't feel the remorse people told me I would have.
I've had 5 abortions and I don't feel bad or sad about any of them I was kinda happy
Abortion is a grave evil, a sin against innocent life and God, the creator of life. According to the Catechism of the Catholic Church:
2270 Human life must be respected and protected absolutely from the moment of conception. From the first moment of his existence, a human being must be recognized as having the rights of a person - among which is the inviolable right of every innocent being to life.
The post-abortive women quoted above do not admit to feeling guilt or anything negative. It would be interesting to ask them in 5 or 10 years about their abortions. Odds are, they will feel altogether differently — and not for the better. Planned Parenthood has long denied the fact that the vast majority of post-abortive women experience regret. We in the pro-life community must answer Planned Parenthood's lies with love, hope, and truth.

Speaking of truth, the signed statements below by post-abortive women from Silent No More express grief, remorse, and heartbreak. Their testimonies reveal the true costs of abortion.
The years of guilt and grief are far worse than any bad I imagined could have come from having my child 15 years ago.
 — Erica 
I lived in a place of fear and depression for so long. Even after my marriage and the birth of my daughter, who I wanted more than anything in the world, I still tried to kill myself. I just could not get peace, happiness, nothing.
 — Rhonda
I took my abortion and stuffed it way down inside. Then I covered it with food, alcohol, drugs and business for the next 32 years, never allowing myself to 'go there' in my mind.
— Melinda
Every day, every minute, I regretted having that abortion...It NEVER made me feel better...EVER!
 — Dora
I spiraled downward. It was ugly. Abortion, not the child in my womb, made a mess of my life.
 — Jody
If anyone tells you that there are no side effects to having an abortion, I’m living proof that the side effects can be devastating.  Not only do you rob yourself of a person that would enrich your life, you rob all your family as well.  I tell you the pain of that realization is excruciating.

Last but not least, here are some quotes from Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta concerning abortion.
That special power of loving that belongs to a woman is seen most clearly when she becomes a mother. Motherhood is the gift of God to women. How grateful we must be to God for this wonderful gift that brings such joy to the whole world, women and men alike! Yet we can destroy this gift of motherhood, especially by the evil of abortion, but also by thinking that other things like jobs or positions are more important than loving, than giving oneself to others. No job, no plans, no possessions, no idea of "freedom" can take the place of love. So anything that destroys God's gift of motherhood destroys His most precious gift to women-- the ability to love as a woman.
— Mother Theresa’s Letter to the Fourth World Conference on Women, Beijing, 1995
We must not be surprised when we hear of murders, of killings, of wars, of hatred. If a mother can kill her own child, what is left but for us to kill each other.
It is a poverty to decide that a child must die so that you may live as you wish.
Abortion kills twice. It kills the body of the baby and it kills the conscience of the mother. Abortion is profoundly anti-women. Three quarters of its victims are women: Half the babies and all the mothers.
Many people are concerned with children of India, with the children of Africa where quite a few die of hunger, and so on. Many people are also concerned about the violence in this great country of the United States. These concerns are very good. But often these same people are not concerned with the millions being killed by the deliberate decision of their own mothers. And this is the greatest destroyer of peace today- abortion which brings people to such blindness.
I feel that the greatest destroyer of peace today is abortion, because it is a war against the child, a direct killing of the innocent child, murder by the mother herself.
And if we can accept that a mother can kill her own child, how can we tell other people not to kill one another?
