This is the generation that will abolish abortion

11-year-old Zoe Griffin tells the story of how pro-abortion women attacked her as she was praying outside Democratic National Convention.

I want you to meet my friend and fellow abortion abolitionist, 11-year-old Zoe Griffin. In a world when grown adults ignore, deny or just don’t care about the abortion holocaust that has claimed over 55 Million of Zoe’s generation, she is willing to take a stand no matter what people think. Zoe joined her mother and friends to lay thousands of roses outside the site of the democratic convention and pray for the babies, the politicians and this generation.

While Zoe was praying, pro-abortion activists who claim to stand up for women began to belittle and scream at Zoe for her stand for life. What is so sad is that one of the women who did this to Zoe, Sunsara Taylor,  is a well know anti-porn activist who claims to be against the degradation of women. I guess just not 11-year-olds who believe that women should not be dehumanized by the abortion industry. Sunsara Taylor’s Blog http://sunsara.blogspot.com

I could write a lot about this and how much I am sickened by what happened, but I wanted to let Zoe tell you in her own words how what happened and why she will never quit being a Stand True Activist. Praise God for young women like Zoe, she is why this is the generation who will abolish abortion.

Here is Zoe’s account:

“Hi, I’m Zoe. Something happened Friday night that a friend wanted me to blog about. I don’t have Facebook or Twitter or anything like that so I’m borrowing my mom’s page for now.

“What happened was a pro-life rally. We had showed up when only 4 people were there. I guess we were supposed to get there early. As more and more people came, a car arrived. A woman came out and opened the trunk. There were 3,300 carnations in the back of that car. We started to unload and unwrap the flowers. Lily, Bella, and I started to write pro-life statements with chalk on the sidewalks when some pro-abortionists came. They were holding signs and chanting: “A baby’s not a baby till it comes out, that’s what birthdays are all about!” They were blowing whistles and jumping around acting like 5-year-old children. I was so sad that these people were so blinded I started crying. Then we started laying down the flowers all across the sidewalk. When we finished, the line of carnations was probably a mile long. A pro-life woman let me hold a crucifix that she had. I started clutching it close to my heart. My knees were shaking, so were my hands.

“The pro-abortionists turned to us and started pointing at different people, saying, “You’re a person! You’re a person! Fetuses are not!” Then the woman saw me crying and said,” You are making this girl cry with your bull____”. I couldn’t stand any more of those lies. They pushed it too far. In the highest-pitched voice I have ever spoken in, I screamed, “THEY ARE NOT THE ONES MAKING ME CRY! YOU ARE! WITH YOUR DARK HEARTS, YOUR DARK MINDS TURNED AGAINST GOD!” My mom ran over to me, put her hand on my shoulder, and calmed me down. Then she went up to them and said, “HOW DARE YOU ATTACK A CHILD LIKE THAT!” While she was yelling, pro-lifers came over to me to calm me down. My whole body was shaking. Our friend, Mrs. McKinney, took me, Jack, and Bella to a CVS that was nearby. We got water and chips and went back. I sat down on a bench when a man from the Charlotte Observer came over to me and started interviewing me. Once he was done, a man came over and gave us ice cream. While I was eating, the pro-abortionists left. Then we started to clean up.

“On the way home I felt sorry that I yelled at those people. I told my mom, and she said, “Do you know why you feel that way? It’s because you have a heart. You have a conscience, and you know what’s right and what’s wrong. Those people attacked you like that because they don’t have a heart.”

I will never, ever forget what happened last night. I had a dream that night that they all converted to pro-life activists. I hope that dream becomes a reality.”

    I smell a bias here. “Pro-abortion women?” Give me a break, its pro-choice. And your title is a bit misleading too. Its really not an attack, its people stating their beliefs. Perhaps in an inappropriate manner, but by the way the rest of this article was biased, I’m sure there’s some exaggerated facts about the “attack” as well.

      Pro-abortion is as correct a statement as anti-abortion. Pro-choice and Pro-Life are simply “nicer” and more “politically correct” ways of stating pro-abortion and anti-abortion. You are arguing semantics on an anti-abortion page that is celebrating the strength of a young woman, who wrote about the emotional attack upon her in her own words. Please take your own bias elsewhere, and show some respect for someone that young standing up for her beliefs.

        Actually, there is a quite a big difference between being Pro-Abortion and Pro-Choice. Pro-Abortion means that you WANT abortions to take place. Pro-Choice means that you understand that it is not YOUR decision what a mother decides to do with her unborn child, fetus, embryo or whatever. It is the mother’s own choice to make. You can be entire Pro-Choice and prefer not to see abortions, or be unwilling to have an abortion yourself. Just because I don’t want to get my body pierced, and I don’t see a reason to put holes in myself unnecessarily, doesn’t mean I can’t support other people’s right to do that very thing. Just because I am not gay, doesn’t mean I can’t support a homosexual’s right to marry who they love. Likewise, just because I am not into abortions as a response to pregnancy doesn’t mean I can’t be Pro-Choice.

        I, personally, would prefer women to give their child up for adoption rather than abort, or try out motherhood for a while before making the decision. However, I also readily agree that there are numerous instances in which the expectant mother should NOT be force to carry a child to term and give birth. For example, rape victims who become pregnant should not HAVE to give birth to a child, go through that pain and the constant reminder of what befell them, if that is not what they want.

        As for the substance of the original post, all I will say is that according to the quoted events here, the “pro-abortionists” didn’t actually attack Zoey, they just used her as ammunition to harass the others. Still gives me a frowny-face, however makes the title of this rather misleading and unnecessarily inflamatory.

          That doesn’t cut it, William.

          Why are you personally opposed to abortion? Is it because it’s an act that kills an innocent and defenseless human being? If so, then why exactly wouldn’t you want to force that view on others?
          Are you just personally opposed to rape? Just personally opposed to all types of murder? How about slavery? Just a little personal inclination on your part? Or would you impose a standard on how to act in these instances on others?

          Also, stop using the word “mother”. A “mother” is only a mother if she lets her child live. Women who kill innocent, defenseless children are not mothers.

      You cannot be pro-choice when one of the choices is murder, if someone walked up to you and would you give him/her the choice of walking away, robbing you or robbing you and killing you? Also if you didn’t know it “fetus” means “Little one” and as Father Frank says: most of you would not cut the arms and legs off a rapist, so why would you let them do it to a baby? Remember that slavery, holocaust and abortion do not care about the weakest of society, however with slavery and holocaust there were next generations with abortion there is no next generation. Watch an abortion and then see if you are still pro-choice.

      Not that Nick will understand this comment but it seems to make a point.
      Consider:
      All those that supported slavery were not slaves.
      All those that support abortion have been born.

      Nick likes the term pro-choice because it is more “gentle”. Isn’t he lucky he has been born.

      No. It’s PRO ABORTION. You are in favor of a woman to ABORT her unborn child if she desires. That’s PRO ABORTION. It’s only a CHOICE for one person involved. The other one has no choice. His/her voice is SILENCED.

      You can put earrings on a pig, but it doesn’t make it prettier. It’s still a pig. Let’s start calling a spade a spade in this country.

      Thank you, Zoe, for standing up for unborn children. Keep seeking God and His heart & will for your life. He will use you to make a difference in the world when you do!

      Zoe, I want to say thank you for standing up for what is right. You are a strong young lady! You have taken a bold step that even some adults would hesitate to take.

      As for the vernicular concerning “pro-choice” vs “pro-abortion”, pro-choice is a definately inaccurate. You see, half a truth is still a whole lie. The absolute truth of the matter is, the unborn baby has no “choice” in the matter at all.

      Obamacare actually opens up the door to post birth abortion-a panel of doctors will determine the fate of children born with birth defects, premature babies, and babies that don’t seem to be “thriving”. Under the mandate of obamacare, a newborn baby has 5 weeks in which to show improvement or at the end of that five weeks, the baby will be put to sleep whether parents agree or don’t…that is what abortion has brought to this world.

      Sad day to be a human being. People treat cats and dogs better than they do the unborn and the defenseless.

      Sorry, Nick,

      But direct abortion is a net destroyer of choices: it delivers one choice but denies a lifetime of choices to the unborn innocent human being it targets. Further, advocates of legal abortion insist on public funding of abortion
      even though abortion was championed as a “private” matter.

    Zoe–don’t give up your faith and zeal to fight for the unborn. I am almost 37 years old, and when I was about your age, I too witnessed the frightening behaviors of the clinic workers as my family and I peacefully protested outside of an abortion clinic. I couldn’t believe how derogatory and disrespectful they were to us, including the religious nuns that were there with us. The clinic workers then, as with the ones that you had an encounter with, are angry, hurting inside, and don’t want to let the truth inside of their hearts. If they did, then they would have to face the truth–that abortion IS murder. We can pray for them. Keep up your fight! Know that this is only the beginning. I will pray for you–God bless you.

    Pro-abortion to US as women believe they support the industry that makes millions off of women and children!So in their words, PROCHOICE PEOPLE you can have a full term baby and because it hasn’t come out of the womb it’s not suppose to be a child? Pleaseeeeeeeeeeee that is utterly insane. AND WHAT ABOUT THE CHILDREN WHO SURVIVE AN ABORTION? Obama voted 4 times against the baby born alive act, no help for a baby who survived an abortion, it was OUT of the womb, alive? For years women who were pregnant was said to be with CHILD. And in my opinion and I appreciate men who support the prolife movement, meaning supporting mother and child to LIVE, liberal men who advocate for abortion being a choice is ridiculous! WOMEN die today because of abortion along with their children. Women grieve for yearsssssssssss because of their abortion of their children. I know women, friends and family members who have had abortions and NONE of them wanted an abortion, the men in their lives demanded they have an abortion!!!! This 11 year old girl show more courage and heart than most adults will ever have in their entire life. God’s blessing be with you Zoe you are a true sister to all the women in this world. So many women just want support from others NOT abortions but too many men in their lives threaten them, it’s the me or the baby mentality, to have abortions, that being boyfriends and husbands. Another liberal lie=A doctor can save the life of the mother and the child, if the child dies, THAT is not an abortion! an abortion is the direct intent of killing the child=big difference! As women let us give support to our sisters, like Zoe, in this life by supporting the woman and the child. And yes adoption is a noble thing to do for women who cannot or will not have a child, allow someone to love that child especially with women today having surrogates to have children for them who can’t have children. Planned Parenthood, the abortion industry has made enough money off of women and children!
    woe to those that call evil good and good evil.
    Woe to those that call evil good and good evil.

It truly amazes me that people do not under stand life liberty and the pursuit of happiness. What chance does an aborted baby have at life or the pursuit of happiness. So many have died for this country in all the wars and yet the unborn still have no say. Thank You

        Liberal lefts are notoriously sexists as by their numerous anti-woman comments. They don’t like when women are successful unless its one of their own. They bashed Sara Palin for being a successful woman. They bashed a 14 year old girl for starting her own business and becoming a landlord at a fair price, mind you. They will tear you up if you are female and stand against them. They are notoriously anti-woman and they will show that EVERY chance they get. They are pro-abortion not pro-woman and never have been.

          Elizabeth, that’s just not fair. There are people behaving badly on both sides of the party line here, and there are also those who are behaving well on either side. The best way to get to the outcome you want for making abortion illegal is to continue to see those on the other side of the debate as humans, people, women… and think about why they believe what they do. We have to try to have a dialogue and understand each other for anything to change. If a fetus is a life, that pro-abortion protester is one, too, and she’s also deserving of care.

When you felt all alone when that evil woman was screaming at you, Jesus was there with His Blessed Mother, and so was St. Michael the Archangel, and your own guardian angel, standing by you. That was also a glorious day for you, for in Mathew Chap. 5:11 it says. Blessed are you when they revile, and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for my sake. REJOICE, AN BE EXCEEDINGLY GLAD, FOR GREAT IS YOUR REWARD IN HEAVEN.

    @Alexandra: It may have been the fact that she is eleven and these other people were, in the strictest physical sense, “adults”. These biological adults, however, seem to have the moral comprehension of small children. For the eleven-year-old, abortion is murder (a pro-life person believes an unborn human being is still a human being). This concept was not grasped by these pro-abortionists (it rarely is, as they seem to think the issue has to do with “women’s rights” or some such nonsense). They chose to dance around and yell at this eleven year old, so blinded were they with their crusade that they couldn’t distinguish between children and adults.

    @Max:

    “Now she knows what people going in for an abortion feel”.

    Besides being untrue, do you understand why even if it -were- true, she would still be in a more moral position? She believes that human beings are human beings in form even before they are born (and nothing scientific or philosophical opposes this) instead of some arbitrary time during pregnancy or after birth (arbitrary is the most accurate descriptor). Her worldview is consistent with reality. If that is the case, and if the debate about abortion is really a debate over when a “person” becomes a “person” (hint: anything but conception is arbitrary both philosophically and scientifically), then you would be condemning people who oppose murder simply because they make the murderers feel bad.

    Have you -ever- tried looking at it from the other point of view?

I am glad she got jail-time. Once again, kudos to everyone who stood up for life at the DNC. what a wonderful example of and for humanity.

    Dear Zoe,

    First of all, thank you for standing up for the millions of babies who didn’t have the opportunity to breathe a breath outside of their mother’s wombs. Secondly, thank you for standing up for what Jesus stands up for (Psalm 139). I know this is such a controversial topic, & you are such a BRAVE little girl for doing what you did! I KNOW without a DOUBT that our Jesus is proud of you! I am so proud of you, & I don’t even know you! :) At this moment, I almost want to cry because of how moved I am by what you did. Please never stop speaking out for truth! & know that the women that attacked you were not women without hearts, they were women without GOD in their lives. When someone knows WHO they are & WHOSE they are, when someone knows what Jesus did for them & how much God loves them, they will turn away from the ways of the world, step by step & slowly as their life goes on. Without Jesus, we are all hardened, gone astray as the book of Jeremiah says, I believe. Hang in there, keep pressing forward, & know that the MORE than people attack you, the MORE God is moving THROUGH YOU, & the MORE satan feels attacked! :) God bless you sister.

    You are such an amazing young woman! With a heart full of courage and love. Dont ever be ashamed of what you know is the truth. The truth that God loves us all.. even those who dont love him. But we have hearts and that is what makes us different. We care. Because God cares. You stay strong and keep up the great work!

    I’m afraid that I have to agree with Alexandra and Janet. What we have here is a pro-life demonstration outside the DNC. Shouted slogans are simply to be expected. With all due respect to Brice, I am not sure that bringing his 11-year-old daughter to a political rally where this sort of confrontation is certain to occur is really a good thing to do–especially now that we know that she could be affected by it to tears. To be brutally honest, I see no real difference between Sunsara Taylor’s attempt to use a little girl’s tears to score rhetorical points and Mr. Griffin’s decision to bring said child to the rally in the first place. Of course, none of this diminishes the aptly-named Zoe’s personal courage in witnessing to the truth in this situation, and praise God for it, but I am not at all convinced that Zoe needed to be placed in this sort of martyrdom situation.

      Zoe choose to go, she was not brought there against her will. Zoe knows what a child is and knows what abortion is. This 11 year old wanted to take a stand and be a peaceful voice for her generation, she was not “placed” there. There is no excuse for “adults” to be yelling at children just as there is no excuse for adults to be killing children in the womb. Zoe knows this and I am proud of her for taking that stand when most adults would never have an ounce of the courage Zoe has.

        OK, let us accept that Zoe chose to be there. If she is voluntarily entering the pubic square to take a stand for her beliefs, she really doesn’t have any right to complain if she is attacked verbally. If Zoe wants to be, as her father put it, a “little activist,” she necessarily accepts the rules of the activism game. Children, generally, are treated with kid gloves because they are not little activists–they are not knowing, voluntary participants in their parents’ political activities; they did not sign up for it, so it is not fair to drag them into it. If they do sign up for it, they are not entitled to use their minority as a shield against push back from the other side.

          Han,

          Thank you so much for your concern over Zoe’s well-being. A couple of things: 1) I’m her mother, not father :) ; 2) This wasn’t a rally but a prayer vigil. Zoe is very familiar with abortion and what it means. She prays in front of the mill and I shield her face when the women from NOW are filming vigil participants. She is but a child and I treat her as such. On this particular weekend, my husband happened to be out of town and I didn’t have a babysitter. And to be totally honest, we didn’t expect counter-protestors. We’ve never had them in Charlotte before. So I brought Zoe and her three siblings to the prayer vigil, because there is absolutely no reason we wouldn’t pray together as a family.

          But there is no reason to underscore what happened. Zoe was intimidated by these paid protestors and she called them on it. They were embarrassed. Zoe wins, in my book, for the glory of God. :)

          Best,
          Brice

    Good on you, Zoe. When I was your age I never did anything as brave as you in standing up for unborn children, but I wish that I had. Those people who attack you have hearts of stone, but they can be defeated by Christ’s love and your love. God be with you.

    Zoe,

    I am so proud of you. You and others like you bring hope, and I have no doubt God was smiling on you when you said what needed to be said to that so-called “adult” who was ABUSING you and be proud of your mom for standing up to her. Jesus Himself got angry at the money-changers in the temple. Remember He told us to be happy when others got mad at us for standing up for Him, and that’s just what you were doing when you yelled at that lady. Remember too, Jesus promised His Holy Spirit would put just the right words into our mouths when those.kind of things happened. That’s exactly what I thought of while I was reading what you said to her. Everything
    about the Democrats ‘

    (Sorry I hit the wrong button before I was done) Everything about the Democratic Convention had made me feel sad until I read the story of your beautiful act of courage, faith and conviction. Not that I’m happy that that lady got you so upset. I’m so sorry you had to go through that;she never should have done that to you, she was mean and cruel. I’m glad you had that dream, though. We have to pray for her and her friends that your dream will come true. Really, your being so brave helped me…..thank you. I’ll say a special prayer for you and your family at M
    ass this morning. I am a mom of 2 grown up boys. I never had a baby girl but if I had been blessed with a daughter, I would have been so proud if she’d been just like you! God bless you, your mom and all of your family and friends.

    I don’t understand why so many people are blaming the victim (the girl) and not the so-called adults who should have addressed their issue with other adults who were also present. “Well she shouldn’t have been standing there” is a cop-out. Come up with something better. We don’t blame victims!

    • Ella
      Posted September 10, 2012 at 7:02 pm | Permalink

      You don’t blame victims? Is that why you think it’s okay to force a victim of rape or incest to not abort their pregnancy? Seriously…? Wow… And don’t give me that “the babies aren’t victims either” shit. Pick up a biology textbook for goodness sakes… it’s a fetus, not a person.

        Do you really want to bring biology into this? A human fetus is a human being just as a cow fetus is a cow and a pig fetus is a pig. The pro-life position is very simple: Homo sapien existence is coterminous with human personhood. It is biological fact that underlies the pro-life position. The pro-choice, position, on the other hand, uses some other criterion as the basis of personhood. For them, there are human beings (defined genetically) that are nevertheless not persons. What is the principled basis for making this distinction?

        Ella, why exactly would a biology text concern itself with ‘personhood’? I find that odd you’d tell one to pick up a biology text to see that “it’s a fetus not a person”. Since ‘person’ wouldn’t have any significance in a biology text as to draw the distinction between humans and “persons”, as if “person”is simply a subclass under “human”. That’s such a silly comment that Im concerned why I even have to address your error.

        You do seem to be an angry person. So, I’m going to pray for you to receive Gods grace.

    Dear Zoe,
    you are a very brave young woman. Don’t be ashamed to have shouted at those women who made you cry; I think you were quite right to do so. Thank you for defending peoples’ rights. For it is exactly what you do! Pro-abortionists say they defend peoples’ rights, but how can one do that by killing people as long as they are quite defenseless?

    I’m embarrassed to say this, but as a grown man who has encountered a lot of stuff in life including the regret that comes from being on the wrong end of an abortion, I had a few tears after reading that. Gutsy kid. Hope she is able to keep that Godly mix of strength and sensitivity. I hope my daughter has that kind of courage…which is really my responsibility. To lead by example.

    Well done Zoe. I am proud of you for standing up for all the unborn babies. I hate to correct people here, but Ella you a so far wrong it isnt funny. IF you can read, pick up a science book and read about fetuses. From the minute of conception it is deemed to be a baby… I feel sad for you that you are so ignorant. Ella, tonight I want you to get down on your knees and thank god that your mother didnt abort you… You and people like you never think about that do you. You are for killing a human life, but how would you be if your own mother had of aborted you. Think about it… Stop being a bully to a 11 yr old girl who wants to tell her story…

    Keep up the good fight honey xxx

    So women who are raped or will most likley or defiently die with the baby,fetus what ever you want to call it she should have to keep the baby what about those poor kids barely old enough to be pregnet,a mother who might areldy have kids who can’t spourt herself let alone a baby, a drug addict who’s baby will be born addicted to drugs probably with a bunch of medical condetions the world isn’t black and white people Mabey adoption is a better option but don’t judge people you don’t know and even if the women just dosent want the baby isn’t it better then it growing up in a place whare it’s unwanted ?

    Tell young Zoe that her mother is right; her regret was her conscience examining her actions. I hope, though, that her conscience came up with a verdict of “not guilty”. Anger is not wrong, per se. Check out the following definition (which closely resembles the definition found in the Cathechism):

    Dear Zoe, you have no concept of what reality is. You are eleven years old. None of you are in a position to tell anybody what to do with their body. Simply put; mind your own business. Abortion will never become illegal, get over it. It’s 2012.

    good for you, Zoe.

    The pro-abortion/ anti-abortion/ pro-life thing comes down to this: you’re really either pro-truth or anti-truth. pro-abortion is the brutal truth. “pro-life” is a lie you tell yourself, because you don’t want to accept the fact that what you’re really supporting is murder. you’re saying, I wouldn’t murder a baby myself, but if others want to, I’m ok with it. at some point in time you have to ask yourself, who is going to stand up for the babies? they can’t do it themselves. do you really think it’s ok for other people to murder a baby? it’s gutless, really. it’s an uncomfortable truth, for sure. but at least have the balls to call it what it is.
