New York Abortion Law Sparks Arrowhead Student, a Pro-Life Volunteer

Maria Francis, Reporter

Arrowhead senior Lia Jablonski volunteered for Pro-Life Wisconsin. She teamed up with the organization to make a video about her life, speaking up for the unborn.

Jablonski took her opinion to Instagram and posted a screenshot from her video with Pro-Life Wisconsin and a caption.

“This picture is a capture from a video I had made with Pro-Life Wisconsin not too long ago promoting life and adoption. It angers me, and saddens me that we have come to this,” said Jablonski in her Instagram caption. Jablonski referred to the New York S240 bill, permitting some abortions after the 24 weeks mark.

Jablonski in her Instagram caption said, “New York has recently passed a bill to legalize late term abortions disguised as a women’s health bill. We must remember that we have a moral duty to protect the unborn, the future generation.”
Jablonski continues, “Tell me again how this unborn child deserves less rights because they aren’t made a priority by the government. Explain to me how the mother’s right to life trumps this child’s right to loving parents and a life of its own. Two hearts beat in a pregnancy, not just one.”

Jablonski says her friend Kirsten recently had a baby girl.
“Kirsten just recently gave birth to the most precious little gift any of us could have asked for. Annalise Elizabeth Senfleben. At 11 weeks, Kirsten could feel little Annalise moving around. At 14 weeks, I could feel her flutter. Tell me how that doesn’t constitute life in the eyes of the government. Annalise was born a week early, perfectly healthy and smiling up at us at two days old. Tell me why a mother has the right to take that all away just because she wants to, because her life matters more in the eyes of the government?”
Jablonski says she uses her social media to bring awareness to the law, in addition to promoting her viewpoint.

“This is not a new innovative health care act. This is murder, the most selfish and desensitized act,” she continued in the post.

She also quoted the Catholic Church, “’The moment a positive law deprives a category of human beings of the protection which civil legislation ought to accord them, the state is denying the equality of all before the law’ (Article 5, 2273, Catechism of the Catholic Church).’”
Megan Liverseed, friend of Jablonski, commented on Jablonski’s post and said, “This is so powerful.”

Jablonski replied to Liverseed’s commented and said, “I wish everyone felt as you did when you read it. Politician need to get their [stuff] together.”

“I don’t know where I am going to be in ten years. I don’t know where I am going to be really in five years. But I can’t wait to see what God has in store for me,” said Jablonski in the video.
