Just some things that are on my heart very heavily today. I am sad. We have a new president. I am excited about that, and i have no doubt that he will do some good things. I have nothing but the utmost respect for him. He is in my prayers. Let me explain why i am sad. There are two issues i am very strongly against and dont support, and that is gay rights(marriage) and abortion. Dont get me wrong,I love gay people, I just dont agree with their lifestyle. I have a few gay friends/aquaintances. But thats another story. One of Obamas top agendas is to make abortion legal, and to overturn Roe vs wade,etc. I read somewhere, and it may or may not be accurate, that this is indeed one of his top priorities,and it could have been hogwash(as far as his prorities go). Here is my personal opinion as far as the abortion thing goes. Number one if you do not want to get pregnant,then dont have sex. If you are going to have sex, then you need to accept the things that may or may not happen when you do.The more partners you have, the greater the risk.Thats as far as I will go with that. I could go as far as to discuss what God intended sex to be for and whom he intended it to be for in the first place, but Im just not going to go there.....lol.
Number 2 , abortion is murder,plain and simple. I know there is talk about sending the troops home,as well as talk about how many lives have been lost,etc.These soldiers did not die in vain,they died fighting for their country, and will never be forgotten.And lets not forget all of the innocent Iraqui men, women, and children that have died as well. But with all do respect, President Obama,have you considered how much innocent blood will be shed if abortion does in fact become legal,or easier to obtain? I realize it is already going on,but consider how much more will occur if that happens. Add it up, and eventually it will equal out to be more lives than all of the casualties in every war we have ever fought,and then some combined!!!! How is that any different? At least the soldiers were given a chance to live, and make the choice to serve and die for their country. Millions of precious babies wont even get the chance to make that choice. Those babies could have been the doctor who found the cure for cancer,or dare I even say it, the next commander in chief. They could have been the soldier who found Bin Laden. Or maybe it didnt even occur to you, that perhaps the person who was supposed to find Bin Laden didnt even get the chance to be born, because his or her mom aborted him several years ago. Something to think about.
Ok, I am crying now..............
I will close with this,a letter from an aborted child. I didnt write this, wish i had, I am not sure who the author is:
I am in Heaven now, sitting on God' lap. He loves me and cries with me; for my heart has been broken. I so wanted to be your little girl.
I don't quite understand what has happened. I was so excited when I began realizing my existence. I was in a dark, yet comfortable place.
I saw I had fingers and toes. I was pretty far along in my developing, yet not near ready to leave my surroundings. I spent most of my time thinking or sleeping.
Even from my earliest days, I felt a special bonding between you and me. Sometimes I heard you crying and I cried with you. Sometimes you would yell or scream, then cry. I heard Daddy yelling back. I was sad, and hoped you would be better soon. I wondered why you cried so much.
One day you cried almost all of the day. I hurt for you. I couldn't imagine why you were so unhappy. That same day, the most horrible thing happened. A very mean monster came into that warm, comfortable place I was in.
I was so scared, I began screaming, but you never once tried to help me. Maybe you never heard me. The monster got closer and closer as I was screaming and screaming, " Mommy, Mommy, help me please; Mommy, help me."
Complete terror is all I felt. I screamed and screamed until I thought I couldn't anymore.Then the monster started ripping my arm off. It hurt so bad; the pain I can never explain. It didn't stop. Oh, how I begged it to stop. I screamed in horror as it ripped my leg off.
Though I was in such complete pain, I was dying. I knew I would never see your face or hear you say how much you love me.
I wanted to make all your tears go away. I had so many plans to make you happy. Now I couldn't; all my dreams were shattered. Though I was in utter pain and horror, I felt the pain of my heart breaking, above all.
I wanted more than anything to be your daughter. No use now, for I was dying a painful death. I could only imagine the terrible things that they had done to you.
I wanted to tell you that I love you before I was gone, but I didn't know the words you could understand. And soon, I no longer had the breath to say them; I was dead. I felt myself rising.
I was being carried by a huge angel into a big beautiful place. I was still crying, but the physical pain was gone.
The angel took me to God and set me on His lap. He said He loved me, and He was my Father. Then I was happy. I asked Him what the thing was that killed me.
He answered, "Abortion. I am sorry, my child; for I know how it feels." I don't know what abortion is; I guess that's the name of the monster.
I'm writing to say that I love you and to tell you how much I wanted to be your little girl. I tried very hard to live. I wanted to live. I had the will, but I couldn't; the monster was too powerful. It sucked my arm and legs off and finally got all of me. It was impossible to live. I just wanted you to know I tried to stay with you. I didn't want to die.
Also, Mommy, please watch out for that abortion monster.
Mommy, I love you and I would hate for you to go through the kind of pain I did. Please be careful .
Mama, I only want to tell you that I forgive you and love you. Dont suffer for me. I also want to ask you for a small favor. Tell the expecting mothers that what they have in their wombs is a baby that only wants to make them happy
I love you mama
