Many ask me "why are you so passionate about the abortion issue?" My answer is this: because abortion is an epidemic that is sweeping across our nation. An epidemic that is killing innocent lives! People will protest against war, drugs, cruelty to animals and other world issues but when it comes to abortion so many of us turn our heads! WHY IS THAT?! We will defend the lives of animals more than the lives of our own species! To me that is ludicrous! This is not about politics, people....this is about human LIVES. We are killing babies for nothing more than the sake of "I can, so I will?" How arrogant, inhumane and ignorant! And to those who defend abortion, I have yet to hear a sound argument. All I hear are excuses. Excuses so that you can be reckless and not take responsibility for your choices and actions. Just because a panel of judges made it legal does NOT make it right. Just because you like an outfit does not mean it looks good on you. Abortion is ugly and is primarily used as a form of birth control so for those who argue "what about rape, incest, etc.?" how do you explain these numbers then?
According to the Alan Guttmacher Institute, a pro-choice research organization affiliated with Planned Parenthood, in 2002 there were approximately 1.29 million abortions performed in the U.S. This translates to over 3500 abortions performed daily and over 40 million occurring in America since Roe v Wade legalized abortion in 1973.
Less than 5% of them are because of rape. So the other MILLIONS of abortions are simply because people say: "Now is not a good time." How selfish, heartless and ignorant that is.
I have a family member who chose abortion because she was young, scared, ashamed and admits to being ignorant to her choice. She will tell you that she was old enough to know better but had no idea the consequences that would come with such a decision. Because she TRUSTED these people to be medical professionals, to give her all of the facts and information. None of them told her she would live for years in silent regret, anger, grief, guilt, and medical issues. I tell you this because this is another reason why I am so passionate about Pro-Life! I have indirectly been affected by the horrors of abortion. I have seen the hurt and damage it causes. I know what it's like to grieve for a baby you never had the chance to know and love. I know that I could have easily been part of those statistics.....
Visit: beyondtheblackvalley.org to hear real testimonies from women who believed the lies that abortion would be a "problem solver" and really has been a life long burden to carry and has ultimately caused more problems than it solved.
I want to make something very clear...I hate abortions not people who have them. I realize that we ALL make mistakes and by the grace of God can know forgiveness no matter what we have done in our past. (Acts 2:38) God loves us more than our past...I find hope in knowing that. My goal is not to hate, but to love. I aim to be a Love Warrior in the spiritual battle for LIFE! I want to spread truth, love and hope to all of those who have had or are considering an abortion. (abortionrecovery.org) You do have a choice and God wants you to choose life.
This day I call heaven and earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live.
Choose life and not death!
(2 Kings 18:32)
I hope and pray that you will choose life and encourage others to as well!
