You know, I have always been pro-life. As a Christian I believe abortion is morally wrong. Since I became a mom, it has amazed me that abortion still goes on today. Here's why: about half-way through a pregnancy you start feeling the flutter. The baby is large enough for the mom to feel movement. It really is an amazing thing. Having carried two kids now, I cannot imagine terminating their sweet little lives. THEY ARE NOT BLOBS OF TISSUE!!!!!
A couple from Maranatha (actually, SC now) had a preemie that was several months early.....WAY before the abortion deadline. Isabelle is now home after spending much time in the hospital. She didn't come out as a blob and develop into a person once she started breathing air. You can read more about her journey at www.caringbridge.org/visit/isabelle
One of our teens became an uncle this week....to a neice who was four weeks early. She's beautiful and doing well. She'll come home from the hospital as soon as next week.
Nate and Kristin's twins, Sam and Gabe, are one month old today. They are healthy babies, completely formed by a miracle of God.
My kids are 2 years old and 3 months old. Both are miracles.
Anything can go "wrong" in a pregnancy and delivery. The very fact that children are created in the way they are is a miracle. Yet there are some out there that don't see the fact that life begins at conception. Life begins and a baby develops. All you have to do is look at an ultrasound photo, feel the flutter, or gaze into the eyes of a preemie. I've never heard anyone say...what a well formed blob you have.
Abortion takes a life...not tissue. I just wish the whole world could see that.
