On this episode of The Federalist Radio Hour, author Claire Culwell joins Culture Editor Emily Jashinsky to discuss her new book “Survivor: An Abortion Survivor’s Surprising Story Of Choosing Forgiveness And Finding Redemption” and her journey to healing after discovering she survived an abortion her birth mother was forced to have.
“I thought the people who’ve been affected by abortion are people that, you know, don’t live in my neighborhood, aren’t in my family, don’t go to my school, whatever it was,” Culwell explained. “I thought that would never be me and yet here I was learning that I had survived something that was meant to take my life and it was meant to happen to my body. And then, and knowing that this happens every single day across the country across the world to unborn children like my twin and like me.”
Abortion, Culwell said, is something that “every American should care about” because it ultimately affects them.
“It’s horrific it’s shocking, it’s inhumane, it is something that every single American should care about, should be appalled with, because this has happened to our children because we are saying that their circumstances deem them unworthy,” Culwell said. “It’s a horrific reality that we’re living in right now in our culture that is allowing this to happen.”
