The Survivors Are Beginning to Speak Up

You call them survivors if they were only a handful of people lived through the ship’s sinking, a plane crash, hotel fire or an ambushed armored carrier. Those who lived through the horrors of Auschwitz were called concentration camp survivors.

So it is with those babies who live when their siblings are aborted. Post Abortion Survivor Syndrome.

Clinical observations by this psychiatrist indicated that the “wanted” abortion survivors were struggling with such deep conflicts, it was nearly impossible to treat them. (1,2) When we did a systematic investigation, we found their confusions and dilemmas were similar to those who survived Auschwitz and other death camps, only worse. You might think that being allowed to live when those near and dear to you were exterminated by gassing or abortion, would make you happy to be alive and ready to greet each day with gladness. The early investigations of “concentration camp survivors” found they were morose, fearful, depressed and often suicidal. And so were their children. (3)

We found children who were chosen to live when their parents had aborted earlier preborn babies had deep problems often misdiagnosed as ADHD, obsessions, depressions, and phobias etc. Far too often these children were medicated. On routine diagnostic evaluation, when I asked a child to draw a picture of their family, not infrequently they included other children. When the picture was shown to a parent, there was often a startled, sometimes angry response. “Now Johnny, you know we have only 2 children. Why did you draw 4? Start over and draw a really nice picture for the doctor”. If mother wasn’t looking, 4 children would reappear. When the mother saw this she sometimes began to cry. She knew, and I knew, and the child knew by means I will describe, there really were 4 children, 2 of which were aborted.

One woman I knew had been both a concentration camp survivor and an abortion survivor. She said, “Surviving in a camp was terrifying but at least you knew your parents and their friends would try to protect you, even if it meant being exterminated themselves. As an abortion survivor your parents were your worst enemies. More than anyone else your mother and/or your father wanted you to be killed. How could anyone grow up trusting their parents or any other parental authority?”

But children must have someone they can trust; otherwise life has no hope or meaning. They often ask themselves, “Should I trust myself. I am not sure but I strongly suspect my parents aborted one of my brothers. They probably discussed whether I was wanted enough to be allowed to live. Do I really want to know the truth? I must know for my own integrity and sanity, but how could I live with people who are murderers? I will have to pretend I don’t know and never ask. I know it would upset them so much, it might break up the family, or mom would get depressed again or they get so mad at me they might send me to a foster home. They already think I have a problem.”

In this way the web of pseudo-secrets is spun. “Let us all pretend nothing happened.” Even those who should know better cannot really accept that the truth will set you free.

Abortion survivors are the abortion conspiracy’s deepest and dirtiest secret.

Though abortion survivors are suppressed and ignored, their truth is erupting. What was whispered in the closets is about to be shouted from the housetops. “We are here and we are angry. You let us live because you wanted us. Now I wonder if I want you old lady. I think it is time you went to an old folk’s home. I may visit you if I want to.” OR “The government made no laws to protect us. Now we won’t abide by any of their stupid laws.”

How many abortion survivors exist? There are no reliable surveys to determine prevalence, but it is possible to make an informed guess. On average women have 3.1 pregnancies during their reproductive years. The abortion rate varies from 30 to 90% of pregnancies depending on the country. Those countries with the largest population have the highest rates. If the rate was 30% evenly spread it would mean 100% of all women had an abortion. If each of them had one child, 100% younger people are abortion survivors. Since the repeat rate is from 50 to 90%, and the average was 75% it would mean that approximately 75% of people born since 1970 are abortion survivors. Conservatively, 40 to 50% of the world’s population are abortion survivors.

Since one of the more prominent symptoms of abortion survivors is that they do not want to have children, (4,5) this can only mean what demographics already show, there is a exponential decline in fertility. The human race is dying out. Unless the abortion survivors resolve their horrible conflicts and find constructive ways of dealing with their anger and distrust, we are facing a bleak future. It is a grim prospect which no amount of financial manipulation will resolve.
