I'm amazed by the way that abortion advocates try to support their views by claiming that these children are just too inconvenient for the parents right now so that justifies taking their life. That sort of statement alone is unbelievable, but what makes it so much worse is that the children their talking about aren't inconvenient at all, they're the exact opposite. So many parents want to have a family and love and care for children but they can't have them. They would gladly adopt those "unwanted" children that they want so much, but they're told it's better to just kill it instead. Why? It doesn't make sense. Give your child a chance. I guarantee that child, even just 2 or 3 years later will tell you they are glad they were allowed to live. They won't tell you they want their life to be taken. Not one. Let them live. If you can't take care of a child then give someone else the opportunity. Life is priceless. Don't throw it away.
This song says so much about the importance of life and how amazing it is...
Saturday was the 38th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision. Over 50 million lives have been lost, but we can't be discouraged by that, we can only be more motivated to continue to share the truth about this terrible reality. It's so frustrating that even though so many lives are being lost everyday, abortion has been so commonplace that we usually don't even talk about it except when that one January day comes around every year.
Maybe the way that many people protest abortion is part of the problem. If you were a teenager that found out she was pregnant and your parents were angry and you and the father of your baby were scared to death of your unknown, and now drastically changed futures, would you be persuaded to change your mind by people standing outside the abortion clinic with signs telling you that you're a murderer and others screaming at you to let you know what a horrible person you are for doing this? It's not that abortion isn't murder, or that it isn't wrong, but even what is true gets ignored if it isn't shared in a loving and encouraging way. Those girls will still go into the clinic and have their child's life taken, they will just feel more terrible and guilty about the whole situation. It is a child and it is a life that should not be taken, but we need to speak the truth in love.
