November 25, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) — The pro-abortion Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, implicitly acknowledged the humanity of unborn babies by sharing the pain of losing her child to miscarriage in an essay in The New York Times today.
“Losing a child means carrying an almost unbearable grief, experienced by many but talked about by few,” she wrote. “Yet despite the staggering commonality of this pain, the conversation remains taboo, riddled with (unwarranted) shame, and perpetuating a cycle of solitary mourning.”
Markle also talked about the healing aspect of being approached with concern,
“‘Are you OK?” a journalist asked me,” the wife of the United Kingdom’s Prince Harry recounted. “I answered him honestly, not knowing that what I said would resonate with so many — new moms and older ones, and anyone who had, in their own way, been silently suffering.”
Even though the duchess recognized that due to her miscarriage she lost her child, she has expressed her support for abortion in the past.
Markle was “pleased” when Ireland repealed constitutional protections for unborn children in a May 2018 referendum. Together with her husband, she attended a party at the British ambassador’s residence in Dublin, Ireland, as part of their first foreign tour after their marriage in 2018. Pro-repeal Sen. Catherine Noone of Ireland was at the same party and tweeted, “The Duchess and I had a chat about the recent referendum result — she watched with interest and was pleased to see the result.”
In the same year, when news of the royal couple’s first pregnancy broke, the official announcement acknowledged the duchess was expecting a human being. “On 15 October 2018, Kensington Palace announced that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were expecting their first child … The palace stated that the royal couple were ‘very pleased’ to be able to share their news with the world,” reported the UK Independent.
Similar dynamics played out recently in the media when singer John Legend, who called for boycotting states with restrictive abortion laws, and his outspokenly pro-abortion wife Chrissy Teigen very publicly displayed their anguish over losing their child in stillbirth at 20 weeks.
People magazine wrote, “Teigen talked about grieving the couple’s loss, saying, ‘I definitely give myself permission to have complete and utter grief … Obviously it’s so painful to go through something like this as a woman, something that was inside your body that you were nurturing and taking care of.”
PETITION UPDATE (9/26/2020):
With President Trump's nomination of Amy Coney Barrett to fill the vacancy on the Supreme Court left by the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, we are closer than we have been in decades to seeing Roe vs. Wade overturned.
We now encourage the Senate to confirm Barrett as the next Associate Justice of the Supreme Court.
Judge Barrett has a fantastic track recond on sanctity of life issues, has seven children, and is a devout believer. She is the perfect remedy for Ruth Bader Ginsburg's radical pro-abortionism.

And then, please SIGN this petition telling the High Court that it's now time to end the activist Roe vs. Wade judgment. Thank you!
PETITION UPDATE (6/29/2020):
In a decision which has imperiled more abortion-minded women, sentenced more preborn to death, and upset pro-lifers across the nation,the United States Supreme Court decided 5-4 to strike down a Louisiana law requiring basic medical precautions in the event of abortion complications, with Chief Justice John Roberts reversing his own past decision to uphold a similar Texas law.
Liberal Justice Stephen Breyer wrote the majority opinion, which held that the Louisiana law was unconstitutional for the simple fact that it was “almost word-for-word identical” to the Texas one the court already struck down in 2016.
In his concurring opinion, Chief Justice Roberts acknowledged that he had “joined the dissent in Whole Woman’s Health and continue to believe that the case was wrongly decided. The question today however is not whether Whole Woman’s Health was right or wrong, but whether to adhere to it in deciding the present case.”
We call on the Supreme Court to stop supporting the culture of death and overturn Roe vs Wade, now.
PETITION UPDATE (1/20/2020):
Hundreds of thousands of people will gather in Washington, D.C., this coming Friday, January 24th, for the March for Life. They will be praying for an end to Roe vs Wade, as the Supreme Court will hear a crucial, abortion-related case later this year in March. United our voices can change the course of history. Sign this petition TODAY! (LEARN MORE BELOW)
PETITION UPDATE (1/3/2020):
In advance of the Supreme Court's hearing arguments in an important abortion case later this year in March, 207 U.S. Senators and Representatives have signed amicus briefs supporting a Louisiana law requiring abortionists to have admitting privileges at a hospital nearby an abortion center.
Some of these supporting briefs also suggest that now is the time to reconsider Roe vs Wade as sound law.
Please SIGN this petition, calling on the U.S. Supreme Court to strike down Roe vs Wade.
More than 60 million Americans have been slaughtered in their mother's wombs as a result of Roe v. Wade. This activist, unconstitutional ruling in 1973 has left countless women emotionally and psychologically scarred.
It was believed by many that Roe would be overturned in 1992 with Planned Parenthood v. Casey. Despite having eight Republican-appointed judges at the time, the Supreme Court ruled 5-4 to uphold it.
Since then, major gains have been made in the fight for life, and many lives have been saved.
However, Roe v. Wade remains the law of the land, leaving millions of defenseless pre-born children vulnerable to murder.
According to a 2016 study conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 35% of aborted babies are African American, despite black women only making up six percent of the U.S. population. 19% of aborted babies are Hispanic.
We thus again call on the court to do everything they can to end Roe vs Wade.
Now is the time for pro-lifers to join together and ensure that all of God's children have a right to life.
Roe v. Wade must come to an end!
FOR MORE INFORMATION:
Pro-lifers have long recognized the pain of loss of life in both abortion and miscarriage and have resources in place for those who need them.
“As members of the body of Christ, the Church, we are called to bear witness to the loss of every life, no matter how brief or small,” wrote Mary McClusky, acting as Outreach for the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops in 2013. “Let us pray that our growing sensitivity to the loss of a child through miscarriage will better assist grieving parents and help them to entrust their child to God’s unfailing care and mercy.”
