furrowing their brows in disbelief, confusion... did she say Pro-Choice???
Yes, I just threw my comfort zone to the wind.
Disclaimer: and I've got to throw this in here because I WILL get a comment or a nasty e-mail
saying that I'm a radical bigot with no heart and a mightier-than-thou attitude. I'll save you
the time. I already know what you are going to say - sooooo let's not waste energy?
This post is not for the Little Bo-Peeps, but rather the ones who kindle the spirit
of Sir William Wallace in their hearts - the brave hearts...
January 22nd, 1973. More than a decade before I was even born.
Our nation made a decision that ushered in, what I believe as, the American holocaust.
All in the name of "women's rights" - to protect her health and reproductive freedom.
41 years of legal abortion in the United States. According to LifeNews.com (2012):
"...54,559,615 abortions since 1973 based on data from both the Centers for Disease Control
and the pro-abortion Guttmacher Institute, a former Planned Parenthood research arm."
We're talking World War II numbers here; right in our own backyard.
Let's play a game. Pretend it was all a lie. Imagine that it wasn't about women's rights
at all. "Health and reproductive freedom" was a slogan used to rally support, but ended up
being a load of BS like some other popular government slogans we've seen... recently. Ahem.
It is a FACT that 78% of Planned Parenthood clinics (the largest abortion provider in the U.S.)
are located in (( minority )) communities. It is a FACT that the very founder and first president
of PP, Margaret Sanger, was an avid racist and dropped quotes like,
"Colored people are like human weeds and are to be exterminated," with careless ease.
Don't believe me? This recorded interview from 1957 is a real gem of an eye opener.
We're not only dealing with racial issues here, but an obvious onslaught directed
at life in general. I'm sorry, but if you want to argue that "it's not a baby" -
or with other typical pro-choice jargon - go right ahead. Truth is - some people
just can't handle the truth. We want to see what we want to see. Good story. The end.
If a woman is not pregnant with a baby... then what the heck is she pregnant with?
God forbid we step on an endangered baby sea turtle "fetus" - why?
Because mother turtles beget baby turtles, duh... and so forth throughout the animal kingdom.
It's NOT a blob of turtle tissue - it's the very potential of endangered life we're talking about!
It's NOT a blob of human tissue either. Catch my drift?
Humans have humans. No matter which way you slice it.
Size. Size is what matters here. States regulating the size, age of a baby in utero viable for legal
abortion. What about the health and reproductive freedom of that child in the womb?
Psshhh... that's just a slogan, remember? To evoke happy thoughts and votes.
"The greatest destroyer of peace is abortion - because if a mother can kill her own child,
what is left but for me to kill you and you to kill me? There is nothing between." - Mother Teresa
and I do believe that we have a CHOICE.
We make our choices - to have sex or not to have sex...
and roll with what comes from that. I'm all about YOUR CHOICE here.
But I'm also about the CHOICE of the life that may come from YOUR CHOICE...
because I'm pretty sure no one in their right mind wants to be exposed to the instruments of abortion.
Call it a consequence of the act? Call it a blessing?
But DO NOT let anyone tell you that it is not a baby;
that abortion will be painless, with zero repercussions.
Lies. Control. Suppression. Money.
What about in the cases of rape, Brittany? That woman has been through
enough - the last thing she needs is a reminder of a tragedy.
My heart goes out. My heart breaks. Thousands of pieces, my friends. Shattered.
I cannot imagine. I cannot understand. I cannot fix what has been broken.
I can try and stop more brokenness though. It's still a life. A small life -that had no say in
the matter. Another victim who deserves the chance to live a full and happy life. Life is healing.
Let me ask you this: If a woman, married with 2 kids, finds herself being beaten and abused by her husband
OR one day realizes that her husband has had half a dozen affairs and fathered other children in the process -
does she ABORT (kill) the children she conceived and bore with that horrible man because looking at those
2 kids would only remind her of her tragic marriage?
Remember the sea turtles? Humans beget humans.
Life heals. Death is not the answer. Abortion is a wolf in sheep's clothing.
"A person's a person no matter how small." - Dr. Seuss
And if you missed the punch above -
don't panic and a put a Pro-Life brigade on my front lawn.
I'm more for women than you can even wrap your mind around.
I'm for their health and TRUE freedom. I'm for the tiny babies
that have no voices, but all the makings of a human person written
in their microscopic DNA. Heck, I'm even for the sea turtles.
I am all about choices -
make them wisely and embrace the journey that unfurls.
I am a Roe vs. Wade survivor -
speaking for the 55 million and counting voices that will never be heard.
And I will never forget.
May the souls of the faithfully departed, through the mercy of God rest in peace.
