While these first words are not mine, they do reflect my thoughts and what I would say if I could speak with such eloquence.
Thanks to 'Priests for Life'
and Abraham Lincoln for these beautiful words.
Abraham Lincoln's willingness to speak out against slavery in the 1860s was not a popular idea among those
who wanted him to accommodate to the times and avoid the controversial issue. His profoundly moral position
against slavery was not a cautious one. Boldly he spoke out repeatedly in defense of human life and dignity...
The word 'abortion' can easily be substituted for the word 'slavery' in the following quote from Lincoln,
and the passage could be addressed to so many today.
What we want, and all we want, is to have with us the men who think slavery wrong. But those who say they
hate slavery, and are opposed to it, but yet act with the party where are they? Let us apply a few tests.
You say that you think slavery is wrong, but you denounce all attempts to restrain it. Is there anything
else that you think wrong, that you are not willing to deal with as a wrong? Why are you so careful, so
tender of this one wrong and no other? You will not let us do a single thing as if it was wrong; there is
no place where you will allow (slavery) to be even called wrong! We must not call it wrong in the Free
States, because it is not there, and we must not call it wrong in the Slave States because it is there;
we must not call it wrong in politics because that is bringing morality into politics, and we must not
call it wrong in the pulpit because that is bringing politics into religion; we must not bring it into
the Tract Society or the other societies, because those are such unsuitable places, and there is no single
place, according to you, where this wrong thing can properly be called wrong!
Science and medicine have proven that life begins at conception. That baby's gender has already been decided as well as who he/she will look like, eye color, etc... Check out baby's progress
. I know that public debate tells us to stick to the facts about the issue and but you can not leave God out of it. God created that baby! Life and death are God's decisions. God gave us laws and morals for the good of society. We have forgotten our morals, our definite right and wrong and life no longer has value. Even for those who aren't Christian, these laws and values still make a society, our country run smooth and free. When we devalue the life of our weakest, the unborn, it won't be long until the next step. Will it be people like me who are disabled? Maybe the elderly?
Pretty soon this country will make Hitler proud. What kind of person does it take to know that a baby cries, sucks it's thumb, sleeps, dreams, knows mama's voice and feels excruciating pain only to have that baby ripped apart piece by piece? For what? Convenience? Women's rights?
When I started researching abortion for this site I wanted to know all about both sides. Well I'm sorry; I just can't wrap my head around the thought of a human being so cold as to fight for the right to do that to a baby. It is just too unreal. When I decide to put my name behind an issue I want to know everything there is to know about that issue. It just seems to me that the pro-aborts fight to hide any information that is discovered about abortion or the development of the baby. They don't want to know the truth they want to hide the truth out of fear of losing their dollars. If more people knew the truth I don't think there would be any more abortion in the United States. If you are here to find help to let your baby live, I thank you with all of my heart. And your baby thanks you too. You are making a brave and compassionate choice. And that is what CHOICE is all about.
