I have to share this with you guys!
So I am sitting at dinner with some of my friends, we’ve all finished eating and are now just talking, probably laughing way too loud in the dining hall, but are just unwinding from homework and school stuff.
We talk about some crazy, random things, and somehow the Duggar Family came up and all of their 19 children. I guess they don’t believe in birth control….? I’m not quite sure. I don’t follow them. But we were just talking about how crazy 19 kids is! I made the point that while they don’t believe in birth control pills or whatnot, that there are still natural birth control things.
My friend says “You’re right! It’s called planned parenthood.”
I just stared at her… I think she was originally oblivious to my stares because she wasn’t initially referring to the organization Planned Parenthood. After I told her what I thought she was referring to, she asked me what they did to “plan parenthood.”
My response: They murder babies… through abortions.
Her response: Oh. I don’t have a problem with that.
I just don’t understand how people don’t have a problem with abortion, even after I refer to it as murdering babies! Is that not blunt enough?
So my initial response to her response was “Oh my goodness.” Yes, I said this out loud. I was disgusted with her, and to be totally honest, I still am.
So the conversation continued. She explained she didn’t see a problem with it as long as it wasn’t used for birth control (whatever that means). So I asked.
Our conversation went a little something like this… “M” will be Me. “H” will be Her.
M “What do you mean ‘not used for birth control’?”
H “If the baby is deformed or disabled it’s fine.”
M “Absolutely not!”
H “Or if a 12-year-old is raped.” (Now, this one is a little tricky. Anytime you throw rape into something, you have to tread lightly.”
M “I still don’t see how it is acceptable to murder an innocent being.”
H “They don’t know.”
M “YES THEY DO! It’s murder!”
H “Do you remember anything from the womb? They are just a bunch of cells. They can’t feel anything. So they don’t know.”
I walked away in utter disgust. I mean, I felt like throwing up I was so sickened by what I had just heard her say. This is the problem with our society today. We fight for equality for all human beings, for gay “marriage”, civil rights, feminist nonsense, yet we fail to recognize an important group of human beings: those still in the womb! They are human beings, too! Why do so many people fail to recognize this? It’s ignorance. Selfishness. Stupidity. There is scientific evidence that a baby could very well be able to feel pain. They can feel every single second during an abortion. Hold on. I’m going to find this research…….
There ya go. Check it out. Day 22 the baby’s heart starts beating. STARTS BEATING. Week 3 the nervous system starts forming.
The time when a fetus begins to feel pain and WHY.
I found an article online of Time Magazine that discussed pain medication given to women before an abortion that would supposedly reduce the pain felt by the fetus. So I guess that makes it ok then… Drug up the mother and the fetus with pain killers and abortion is ok. How do people come up with this stuff? It doesn’t change the fact that abortion is still killing the baby.
What I don’t understand is why people can’t see the dignity in all beings, the unborn included. How would they feel being torn to shreds by a vacuum? I don’t think anyone would be too open to that idea. So why do we subject the unborn, innocent, helpless little humans to it?
I hate when people tell me that fetuses are not alive… This is such a load of CRAP!
How do you know if something is alive? If it grows, right? Embryos grow. Fetuses grow.
It’s not human. It just has the potential to be human. So if it just had the potential, it could be a dog, or a fish, or a cat if it wanted then, right? But it can’t! IT BECOMES HUMAN! It has a beating heart. At a certain stage a baby can start to recognize its mothers voice. A baby hears her heart beat. A baby moves. Sucks its thumb. I think of all the families out there who can’t have children, and would love the child unconditionally. And there are women out there that throw their children away like they’re nothing. It disgusts me.
I could keep going, but I think I’ll stop there.
Lord and giver of all life, help us to value each person, created in love by you.
In your mercy, guide and assist our efforts to promote the dignity and value of all human life, born and unborn. We ask this through Christ our Lord.
