A highly disturbing new video features a pro-abortion activist attempting to convince children that the termination of a living unborn baby is totally acceptable, and even godly.
The video, titled, “Kids Meet Someone Who’s Had an Abortion,” was posted to the “Kids Meet” Facebook page Friday and features “Shout Your Abortion” founder, Amelia Bonow. Shockingly, at one point, Bonow goes as far as suggesting that abortion is “part of God’s plan.”
The video opens with a young child asserting his belief that it is not OK to have an abortion if it is a result of the person simply “being reckless” in their life choices. If there is “nothing wrong going on,” he says, then abortion should not be permitted.
“I don’t know, I just don’t agree,” Bonow responds, much to the confusion of the child.
When Bonow, who proudly declared to the kids that she underwent a termination, notes that her partner failed to wear a condom, another child asks why, to which she says it was just the “easier option” at the time.
When two young girls ask the activist about what exactly an abortion procedure entails, her answer is devastating:
“You go to the doctor, and they put this little straw inside of your cervix, and then inside of your uterus, and then they just suck the pregnancy out,” she replied, clearly referring to the unborn human child. “And it was like a cr*ppy dentist appointment or something. It was just like, ‘This is a body thing that’s kind of uncomfortable,’ but then it was over, and I felt really just grateful that I wasn’t pregnant anymore.”

The most shocking moment of the entire video, however, comes when Bonow asks one of the young boys if he believes in God. The question came on the back of the boy arguing that babies should be born and given up for adoption instead of being terminated — a point with which Bonow vehemently disagreed.
“I believe in God,” the youngster declared. “What do you think God thinks about abortion?”
“I think it is all part of God’s plan,” Bonow responds, before adding jokingly, “I really was just thinking about Drake when I said that,” in reference to the song “God’s Plan” by the famous rapper.
Then one of the young girls, who identifies herself as a Catholic, notes that she doesn’t think the church likes abortion because it is “like, killing the baby.”
Another girl adds that she thinks it is up to the person who is carrying the baby.
“I feel supported by that,” Bonow nods approvingly.
In another segment, a slightly older looking girl says she is proud to post on Facebook messages like: “Just your friendly reminder that abortion isn’t murder!” to which Bonow giggled.
Others, clearly influenced by Bonow’s staunch pro-abortion position, indicated their belief that an unborn baby is not a living creature.
“I kind of like to compare it to a sea cucumber. It’s not thinking; it’s just living,” one teen boy asserts. “It’s like, your arm is not capable of complex thought. Neither is a baby inside your womb.”
The abortion activist, who rose to prominence after penning a Facebook post in which she claimed to be “inexpressibly grateful” for her abortion, also claimed that the term “pro-life” is mere “propaganda.”
Often, she said, the pro-life community “don’t want to take care of people who have babies they can’t afford and then are totally poor.”
They are not pro-life, she said, “I’m pro-life!”
After the video was posted, Bonow took to Twitter to announce that “Shout Your Abortion” will be releasing a children’s book about abortion in 2020.

In one of the final remarks, when questioned as to whether she is frustrated about being defined by her choice to have an abortion, Bonow responds, “It feels like I’m living my exact right life. It’s God’s plan.”
As you can imagine, the video faced enormous backlash online.
“Abortion has never been about choice,” one person commented. “It’s about escaping the consequences of your choices by taking all choices away from another human being.”
“I can’t even watch the entire clip. Heartbreaking,” another added. “I had an abortion at 19 and it was the biggest mistake of my life. A baby is a baby. Had anyone told me that my baby wasn’t a mass of tissue, but instead a human being, I would have three adult children instead of two. Thankfully, the best decision I ever made was to invite Christ into my life twenty one years later. I’ve been forgiven, but the abortion is not forgotten.”
