Where have I been??!! I totally missed this story about a female inmate seeking an abortion in my own back yard (Saint Louis) but was granted a stay of execution of the BABY by Supreme Court Justice Thomas last Friday. If only the other babies that are murdered every 23 seconds in America were so lucky!
Should my tax money be used to help this women kill her baby... HELL NO!
Don't get me wrong.. I totally feel for the women who wants to kill her baby. Been there and done that and I DONT WISH THAT PAIN ON ANY ONE! I am sure she sees it as a solution to a major problem but it is just a temporary one where the cost to an innocent life and the women is DEEP.
And as a women who has gone threw an abortion herself and knowing the deep hurts it causes and the possibility of worse health issues then going threw 9 months of pregnancy (breast cancer, sterilization, DEATH), I find it a slap in the face to ask ME, a tax payer to pay for her ride to the clinic.. it would be as if I myself was driving her.. and you KNOW I would never do that. And I know MOST of Missouri Tax Payers feel the same.
I thank Judge Thomas for staying this execution. I pray that it stands or goes to the full court for a vote.. so a precedent may be made. I pray that the child's life may be saved and that he or she will be loved in an adoptive home (I volunteer!) or that the mother does come to a place in her life where she can see it is more loving to mother a child then to kill it.
You know I will be following this story closely from here on in.
Proverbs 24:11-12 If thou forbear to deliver [them that are] drawn unto death, and [those that are] ready to be slain; If thou sayest, Behold, we knew it not; doth not he that pondereth the heart consider [it]? and he that keepeth thy soul, doth [not] he know [it]? and shall [not] he render to [every] man according to his works?
*****UPDATE***** Apparently I was reading Sunday's (yesterday's news as they say)
Here is the up dated link reported Monday the 17th.
Sadly, tax payers are now in the business of abortion and our Supreme Court didn't even have the balls to sign their name to the order and gave only a two line blurt.
"The U.S. Supreme Court cleared the way Monday for a Missouri inmate to receive an abortion that was delayed for weeks by a new prison policy.
In an unsigned, two-sentence order, the court ended a temporary delay that was issued late Friday night by Justice Clarence Thomas"
They don't even have the guts to put their name on this baby's death warrant.
"In court filings last week, Roe's lawyers said she was 16 to 17 weeks pregnant.."
"What's Going on with Your Baby?
The fetus is about 6 and 1/4 inches long and weighs 4-5 ounces, about the same size as the placenta. The eyes are more forward than on either side of the face now. Your baby's ears have started to pop from his head and lanugo is beginning to appear on your baby's head and body. What a cutie!
On average, most moms are feeling fetal movement by now. Kick, little one, kick!"
Yes, Kick little one.. kick for your life..maybe your mom will have a change of heart.. our courts have abandoned you and I am footing part of the bill..
