Hi y’all! I’m back with more fun and thoughtful words that have been swirling around this dome of mine for a while. It’s about a topic that is pretty much almost taboo to talk about in certain circles and will definitely get arguments going with most as well. That topic is pregnancy and the decision to terminate said pregnancy. After reading a blog post by one of my favorite follows about praying in front of their local Planned Parenthood location, I started to think about why I haven’t been brave enough to do so myself. In searching for an answer, I guess I can boil it down to not wanting to cause a scene even though it is for a great cause, and I’m just generally non-confrontational in all respects of the word. I have strong personal beliefs about things, but I really make an effort to try to not push any agenda, lifestyle, etc on other people. I know it may seem cowardly to some of you who may read this knowing that, but you know what? That’s ok with me.
With all of that said, the main point of it all is that this got me thinking about just how tragic abortion really is. I’ll be honest, in my earlier days I was all for the personal choice that people would make to end a pregnancy. Honestly, I was just too young to comprehend the true meaning of it. Let’s call it what it is. It’s legal murder, y’all. You’re ending a life by committing the act. Nobody ever actually thinks of it that way. The usual excuses are things like “oh, it wouldn’t be fair to raise a child in this world.” Or “I just can’t afford another child.” Etc… Truth is, if that’s so, then give the child up for adoption. I know it may be easier said than done, but to just kill a child because it doesn’t fit into your life’s plan just sucks. You know what else sucks, having to be reminded that people terminate pregnancies is the fact that there are people like me who will probably never have children of their own for one reason or another and would do nearly anything to have one. How messed up is that, right? It just breaks my heart. At least with me, I have my life to blame for my problems. I just haven’t found the mother of my children and chances are I probably never will, but there are plenty of married couples who try and try for children with no luck, yet there are countless women going to clinics every day killing their kids. It just sucks. I know, nobody said life would be fair, but things need to be done to stop this unfairness. It can and should be stopped.
Anyway, more to come another day, my friends. Stay safe out there in this crazy world of ours!
