LOL Big Data Group Fishing For Pro-Abortion Stories, Get's Owned On Twitter
While most of us were preparing to spend time with those we love for Christmas and celebrating the birth of Christ, a callous data group asked Twitter users to send in their abortion stories. On Christmas Day, media group FiveThirtyEight asked users to submit their stories about getting abortions.
The site tweeted, “Do you have an abortion story? We want to hear from you,” with a link to an article on the site that included a form for users to answer questions.
The article explained: “Nearly 1 in 4 American women will have an abortion before the age of 45. But over the past decade, access to abortion in America has changed dramatically. There are fewer clinics and more restrictions. And now it seems likely that the Supreme Court will limit the right to abortion even further. As we document the impact of these shifts, we want to include the voices of people who have had abortions in the U.S.”
The article concluded, “We know that this can be a sensitive topic, so none of your personal information will be published without your consent.”
A included asked for people who “had an abortion and are willing to share [their] experiences.”
Some of the question included:
"About how far along were you in your pregnancy when you had the abortion?"
“How did your decision to have an abortion affect your life?”
“Did you have to pay out of pocket for the abortion? If so, how affordable was it for you?”
Obviously, they're a data group so they asked basic questions as well, such as where the people lived... ect
It wasn't the ridiculous timing or heartless decision to collect this information on Christmas that kept my attention. It was the responses the data group got on Twitter.
Responses like one user explained how he and a group of people changed a woman's mind Good Friday:
"On Good Friday years ago, about 30 of us carrying large crosses walked 7 times around an abortion clinic in Dallas. A young woman inside saw us, came out weeping, & chose to keep her baby. The abortion clinic went out of business 6 months later & we held a worship service there."
A woman told about her own abortion experince: “I found myself unexpectedly pregnant at the age of 22 in my last semester of college with my daughter. Her father and I decided to marry, and she is still the most unexpected blessing in our lives. I cannot imagine a world without her joyful presence.”

The general theme from the women on Twitter who had considered abortion previously was that many of them were pressured into it by doctors and people around them. If you have time, it's worth looking through the numerous responses. Especially if you're looking to restore a little faith in humanity after such a tumultuous year.
