Abortion is Forever...


I saw a bumper sticker the other day - it said Adoption is another Option - it crossed the letters in the word abortion to change it to adoption... I liked that.... Today's society has become so harden towards human life..... You hear things like - a woman should have a choice about her body... she wasn't ready to be a mom yet.... Oh it's easy to get an abortion -it's almost painless...

Abortion has become another form of birth control... I remember listening to Rosie O'Donnell rant about being pro-abortion..... in the middle of her rant - I remembered the words of Ronald Reagan... "Abortion is advocated only by persons who already have been born"

I remember when I was talking to a birth mother and I asked her why she decided to put her baby up for adoption... Her answer to me was "It was too late to abort it" WOW... I think for the first time I was utterly speechless... I will say that I did not feel judgment towards her - I never thought she was a bad person... I was just shocked on how easily the words came to her lips... Many people don't realize that abortion is killing a human life...

I know Planned Parenthood would never call it a human life.... they call it (the baby) tissue removal... seriously... I remember when I was in my first year of college.. My best friend found out she was pregnant. She decided to have an abortion.. In those days - I thought she was making a good choice.. until.. I took her to her appointment - I remember walking through a line of picketers and going into the waiting room... She went back right away and I found a comfortable couch to sit on.. I did not have anything to read so I people watched.... There was one mother who brought her daughter in - the girl must have been around thirteen - when the young girl came out - the mother laughed and said "I told you it wasn't a big deal".... that moment will forever be burned into my brain... the complete disgust of it....

My friend came out when it was over - we looked at each other and we cried..... Twenty-four years later - my friend who is still a best friend today - still feels the guilt... especially when she looks at her beautiful 15 year old daughter... It's a guilt that I pray will go a way...

"The first thing I'd do as president is sign the Freedom of Choice Act. That's the first thing that I'd do." -- Senator Barack Obama, speaking to the Planned Parenthood Action Fund, July 17, 2007

This act is the most radical abortion law yet - Freedom of Choice Act - click on the link to get more information.....

Once an abortion has been done there is no going back.....

  2. Although I don't advocate for abortion, I do believe that the government should have no say in what a woman chooses to do. Abortion should be avoided if possible, but who would deny, for instance, a child raped and impregnated by her own father, an abortion? Certainly not me. I would hate for abortion rights to be taken away and I hate it when someone has an abortion for no good reason when their child could have been adopted. There is no easy solution to the debate for me.
    Thanks for the thoughtful topic!

  4. Kelly,

    As a woman who knows what it is like to live with the consequences of an abortion myself, the guilt never goes away. I thank God everyday that He know longer sees me as anything but clean in His eyes and I look forward to someday seeing that first child of mine that I let go when I was 17.

    This is a great post! I am so proud of you for not only posting it but supporting the pro life choice and joining me in talking about the long term affects no one ever talks about.

    Love and Hugs ~ Kat

  7. Kelly, you touched my heart with this post. It is scary how people become almost carefree when they talk about abortion. They try to take the horror out of it. I also once went to a clinic and waited for a good friend while she went through an abortion. That was about 17 years ago. I can still feel the uneasiness and heaviness in that waiting room to this day. The experience was devastating to my friend and to me on so many levels. I often feel guilty for having sat in that room knowing what was going on behind those closed doors. I was young and nervous too. I pray that human life does not continue to be devalued in this country.

    I'm so glad that I found your blog today.

    God bless you.

  8. Thanks for posting this! I worked in the Neonatal ICU for seven years and took care of babies that were born at 22+ weeks and lived! I've held babies in my hands that barely weighed 1 pound and they lived! What sweet little darlings they are.
    Thanks for visiting my blog--I look forward to reading your posts often.
    Blessings

  10. 12 years ago I sat in an infertility clinic waiting room with couples who were trying and spending their life savings for years while two floors up babies were being murdered via "abortion". BABIES!!!! I was blessed with a baby and will never forget the miracle of it all. When I think back though, my heart aches for those who were told "There's nothing more we can do!".

  11. Thank you for posting this. More babies are killed every year than from any other cause outside of abortion.

    God bless,
    Debby

  12. Great post! On a slightly different note, I was in my mid to late thirties when I had my boys. Because of my age, the OBs wanted me to take special tests to determine if the baby will have any "problems". I opted out of all of them because I knew I would never have an abortion.

  13. Wow, my heart aches that those words can come out so easily of Rosie's mouth and the mother's mouth of that 13 year old. I am shocked and don't know what else to say
