Soooo… I was having a conversation with two people this week and the conversation turned to a woman who had recently given birth to a baby. Both of these women adamantly stated that the baby should have been aborted. I, just as adamantly, stated that I do not believe this child - or any child - should be aborted. (By the way – we all play nice when we disagree, so we are just as close now as we were before the discussion occurred.)
Then I told them about abortion survivors and what they have to say. For the three of you who are still reading this, go put a face – no, go put a whole lot of faces to the term “abortion survivor”. Here, here, and here you will see real life stories of real life people who tell you that they are GLAD to be ALIVE.
Then I told them that it wasn’t the baby’s fault. This little child has a right to live, be nurtured, grow up, and even to make mistakes like all the rest of us. Regardless of the circumstances of this child’s conception, regardless of who the parents are and the mistakes they have made, regardless of the opinions of others – this child has a right to life just like you and I do.
Oh, and by the way, the mother wants this baby.
And, speaking of mothers, it’s important to put a face to the post abortion trauma that mothers and, sometimes, fathers face. And the long road to healing that some people have…
No, I will not change my mind. I am delighted that both mother and child have been spared the trauma of abortion.
Please be thoughtful and gentle if you choose to leave a comment. Thank you!Blessings, Kathy
Certainly you made my mind and heart,
you wove me together in my mother’s womb.
