The debate set off a firestorm of confused and misleading remarks concerning late term/partial birth abortions in America.
I am not here to debate anyone or try to change minds. I’m tired of seeing mean spirited, hateful articles on social media about those of us who are against abortion. Many of us believe life begins at conception. We aren’t uneducated. We aren’t ignorant. We aren’t deluded. We have a different opinion than some of you reading this and I respect your right to disagree with me. There was a time in my life long ago that I shared your opinion, but I no longer do.
You can continue to ridicule us for our Christian beliefs. It’s no surprise to us…the Bible tells us to expect it.
Regarding the argument that it’s a woman’s body and she has a right to decide what to do with it? A woman’s body does not have four eyes, four arms, four legs, and two beating hearts. She’s making a choice for another human being who has no voice.
As many of us who work in health care can attest to….we’ve witnessed many premature babies go on to lead productive lives. Most were wanted. A few were abandoned. Many had birth defects that would have made them a “candidate” for abortion if their mother had chosen that option. The majority of them defied the odds and are grown adults today. I wonder where they would stand on the issue of abortion?
** I usually stay away from politics here and on Facebook, but I felt I had to speak up at least once on this issue.
