Thank you to those who took action and let your voice be heard by writing into your Representative concerning my last post. And Thank you AnnaLisa for linking that last post in your journal ((HUGS)).
As many of my readers are aware of that I myself had an abortion at age 15 and may understand why this is a subject that is near and dear to me and that I must speak out about it. I am always grateful to those who respond to my urgent calls to prayer and fasting and going the extra mile and letting their voice be heard on this subject. I will keep a close eye on that Bill and how it was voted on and will keep you updated.
I am sometimes surprised by how nonchalant and cold hearted some are to this issue. Maybe they just don't understand what abortion truly is and are listening to the LIES that industry has put out? (as I once did) Maybe they don't understand how truly devastating abortion is to the girl or women who goes threw it? This so called choice is some thing I will have to live with for the rest of my life, knowing I choose death and murder for my child instead of the life it was intended to have. Many women suffer in silence about their abortion and the pain it has and is causing them but I am THANKFUL to The Lord for freeing me of the guilt and shame and equipped me to speak openly about it. If I can effect just one person, then anything I went threw was worth it.
To address a comment I got a few posts back saying that we don't have the right to take away a women's choice to have an abortion and that by doing so would bring us back to back ally abortions and women would suffer for it..
I want to point out that the numbers of back ally abortions and the mortality rate associated to them before it became a legal right to have one, is totally fabricated by the abortion industry. The once pro-choice doctor (author of Lime 5 and Silent Scream) who helped bring the law into the forefront admitted they knew the numbers where incorrect but since it helped their cause they were not going to dispute it. And I would like to also point out how women are being BUTCHERED in clinics now, even though it is supposed to be a safe and rare procedure. But you know you are not going to hear those facts on your 5'oclock news. Ask the ER attendants and ambulance drivers in Granit City, ILL how many times the so called Hope Clinic for Women have sent theirclients over to them!
Abortion not only ends a life of a baby but also harms the women. Post traumatic stress, possible bleeding out at home if she is not monitored, possible damage to her reproductive organs, scaring that effects future pregnancies that may cause miscarrying and sterilization, links to breast cancer, depression and trouble with relationships and sexual relationships. Women DESERVE BETTER then the Lie that having an abortion will solve all her problems and she will not have to suffer any consequences later!
And let's face it people have choices everyday. We are given the choice to murder or not murder some one who has piss us off or are inconvenient to us.. most choose not to because it is against the law and would likely end in a prison sentence. Just because it is currently legal to kill an innocent life doesn't make it right, just like taking the life of a toddler because it doesn't fit into your life style is not right.. only difference there is location and stage of development.
Yes I know I am not going to change anyone's mind who's heart has not been pierced, or that even in a few years what ever is done to change some of these laws will be undone but at least I will have done all I was equipped to do and I can say I did what was right and be able to face God in the end and not say I was ignorant to the genocide that was going on or that I turned a blind eye to it... Will you be able to say that?
