This NICU Nurse Had A POWERFUL Take On The Women’s March On Washington

A blog post by a young nurse went viral this weekend after she powerfully denounced the Women’s March On Washington for refusing to include pro-life organizations in the event.

Emily Knorr, a 23-year-old NICU nurse from Chicago, penned a reflection on the event from her perspective as a pro-life Christian nurse who cares for infants in intensive care.

Check it out (via A Soul At Work):

Women, we are the heart! We are the heart of this world, with the ability to turn its head. Women, we were not created to be trampled on or used. We are not secondary or lesser to our male counterparts. We were created with feminine qualities including gentleness, warmth, sensitivity, compassion, and receptivity. Yes, we’re intelligent, capable, and driven. We are strong and brave (shout out to Leah Darrow). We are not a slave to our fellow man, but rather a fundamental, necessary, and worthy companion. The gifts and talents that we have to offer are good, holy and beautiful. We are nurturing, loving, protective, loyal, self-giving, and communicative by nature. These qualities are of great service to our world. They are valuable in the workplace, just as they are essential to the family. It is by harnessing these very qualities that we will be be most impactful in the world whether as business women, entrepreneurs, politicians, journalists, doctors and/or nurses, but of utmost importance as mothers.

She continued, elaborating on her pro-life stance:

I spend 40 blessed, albeit difficult hours a week caring for sick, suffering, and sometimes dying babies. Some of these babies were born as early as 22 weeks gestation—meaning mom was only 5.5 months pregnant when she delivered this tiny, precious child. This baby’s heart beats, and lungs’ breathe. Her brain continues to grow and develop at a rapid pace and is very easily impacted by all we do to her and inflict upon her. She moves, reacts to touch, and experiences pain. She recognizes mom’s voice and smell. She does best skin to skin on mom’s chest. There, her temperature and vitals stabilize. This baby does not simply live, but—let me tell you—she fights. She fights hard for her life…and I fight for it too.

I take abortion seriously, but I also take it personally. Not only because it takes an innocent life, and as humans we should all defend life, but also because frankly, I find it to be an insult to my life’s work and the tireless dedication shown by my fellow nurses and neonatologists. Doctors spend countless hours and an outpouring of knowledge specializing in this field. News flash: the patients of fetal specialists are fetuses. How have we let these lies about women and babies lead to a complete denial of an entire realm of medicine which is still at it’s height, the forefront of its knowledge, development, and progress?

The reflection touches on issues that were central to this weekend’s Women’s March, primarily the issue of life and the role women play in society today.

The reflection was originally posted on Facebook and very quickly collected thousands of interactions and shares.

  4. Your withdrawal bleed usually comes a couple of days after the last pill. But because you’re taking new hormones, your body will take some time to get into the swing of things and may skip a couple of bleeds or reduce amount/time of bleed.. . If you want to skip the bleed for a holiday or something, keep taking the next pack straight after the last one. Won’t do any harm.. . Of course if there’s a chance you’re pregnant this could also be a cause. A visit to the doctor will help you out either way.
