[McGuin] Pro-life attacker was my friend before I was raped and chose to save my baby
VIDEO: [Rebel Media] David Menzies comments on Jordan Hunt’s roundhouse kicking of a pro-life activist and its similarities to other left-wing extremists [Oct. 6, 2018]
I went to the pregnancy resource centre here in Ontario and asked the woman whether I should abort or not. She told me that although she couldn’t tell me what to do, she would offer support regardless. If I kept the baby, they would help me with furniture, prenatal class, counseling — the whole nine yards, and she assured me that I was capable of raising my baby.
So I kept the baby, and that’s when it hit me: women don’t abort because they CAN’T carry the baby. They abort because they are scared to carry the baby and nobody is telling them otherwise.
The picture above is myself with an old friend, Jordan — Jordan Hunt. He was always quirky. He walked barefoot everywhere, climbed on equipment, statues, poles and trees. He had a loud and contagious laugh and was always a shoulder to lean on. He was unapologetically himself.
We eventually grew apart, as many young friendships do.
Then I saw his face in my Facebook newsfeed: Pro-life protest turns violent. I watched the video in horror. Before the violence even started, my heart shattered when Jordan Hunt insinuated that babies like my daughter should be aborted. Like it’s the obvious choice — mocking with thumbs up, thumbs down whether a rape victim “should keep the baby?”
Then he kicked her — a young pro-life activist named Marie-Claire Bissonnette. You can hear Jordan yelling, “I only meant to kick her phone,” and I wholeheartedly believe he only meant to kick her phone out of her hand — but even that was such an unnecessary act of violence and the hatred he had was easy to see. And all because Marie-Claire suggested it wasn’t okay to kill a baby conceived in rape. All because she suggested it wasn’t okay to kill MY baby.
Since watching this video I have caught myself grieving. The Jordan I knew died when I saw that video. But it hurts more when I realize he is still here — but he cares so little about my child’s life that he would kick a woman for suggesting we do anything other than abort children like mine.
