I've said it before.
I am a very flawed believer. I curse. I covet. I lust. I kinda suck sometimes.
Anybody who knows me will tell you I am the furthest thing from being a "bible thumper."
Back when I was a virile young man, I considered it part of being a "man" to attempt to pollinate every willing female I would encounter. (not that there were many of those, BTW)
And if she got pregnant, I don't recall feeling any other real compunction to do anything other than "fix" the "problem" through an abortion.
Yes. I was young and dumb and I was a heathen, but then something happened that change my worldview entirely.
My oldest sister and her husband got pregnant with their first child.
There were problems. When it came time for the birth, the problems multiplied and it wasn't looking good. I went to the hospital and saw the concern and worry in everyone's eyes. It wasn't known if mother and child would make it.
The medical experts pulled out all the stops and made every effort to make sure child and mother lived.
They DID live. Thankfully. That child has grown to be an intelligent successful young woman with a family of her own.
This incident made me change my mind about abortion. If so many talented people are willing to go to such great lengths to save innocent and helpless human life, then human life must be a very special thing and it should be protected.
In the back of my mind I think I always knew this was true, but I think I needed a kick in the ass to confirm it.
What was the difference between my sister's difficult pregnancy and others which end up in abortion?
From what I can tell, it is pretty much just a matter of want or desire.
If one wants the baby, then the baby is human and it will be taken care of properly.
If one doesn't want the baby, then it is nothing more than an inconvenient blob to be discarded.
Some say abortion is a choice or an option or a form of birth control or a women's health issue.
Birth control is condoms, the pill, early withdrawal, abstinence, or any other of the various contraceptive forms. Once the sperm fertilizes the egg, it is a human life. It's not a chicken or an elephant or a cat.
I've told my kids that if they are man or woman enough to stick it in or allow it to be stuck in unprotected, then they are man or woman enough to take responsibility for any human life they create.
We don't kill babies in this family.
The Center For Medical Progress has been releasing jaw-dropping undercover videos from Planned Parenthood.
Watch them. All of them.
If this is your idea of "choice," then you chose wrong.
This is pure evil. If you disagree...and I don't care who you are...family, friend, whatever...you can unfriend me and be gone from my life forever.
I want nothing to do with you.
Watch the video.
All of it.
That casserole dish was full of human arms, legs, eyes, fingers, toes, and lungs. You are a soulless ghoul if you think they didn't belong to a human being...a baby.
These satanic bastards act like it's cool, and treat these slaughtered innocents as if their dismembered bodies are used auto parts to be bought and sold.
Never before have I been so angered and saddened that something so inherently perverse can be taking place in a country I once so dearly loved.
Innocent and defenseless human life no longer has any value in this country. People are more upset about a gawd damned lion being poached.
There will be a horrible reckoning.
I suppose abortion should be legal, safe, and available.
It should also be a rarity.
I'm pretty dumb, and I don't have all the answers.
But I'm sure what I've seen in these videos ain't it...
