saving babies.....

My views on abortion are based on my own personal feelings, and solidified on July 14th, 1973 when I first held my son in my arms.  At that moment, I knew that no matter how the seed was planted in my womb, I personally would not be able to seek to have a fetus aborted.  When does the soul arrive in that little body?  I had to agree with the teaching of the Church it happened at the time of conception.  As I grew older, I was no longer able to take the pill, and other forms of contraceptives were not effective -- I miscarried three times, each time before I really knew I was pregnant, and part of me still grieves for the lost ones.  I chose to have my tubes tied at 35 years old to keep it from ever happening again,.   

But even as I realize that about myself, I also know I have neither the wisdom nor the moral fiber to make that choice for all women.  I have not faced a life of hardship and want because the father of the child flits off.  I have not faced the despair of knowing the baby will be deformed, handicapped, or retarded.  I have not been raped, either by a stranger or by family.  I did not face the economic necessity of holding down a full-time job while trying to raise a child that I cannot afford to care for. 

So now we have lawmakers who feel that they have the right to declare abortions illegal, with promises to prosecute a woman who even miscarries for murder, and severe penalties for doctors who provide the operation.  By what right do they make that decision for others?  

Do they offer sex education and contraceptives to teens? 

Do they offer help and pre-natal to the mothers-to-be? 

Do they offer comfort and therapy to women who are victimized by rape or incest? 

Do they agree to hold the father legally, financially and morally responsible for spreading their seed? 

Do they provide daycare and sustenance to the poor to raise the child?   

None of the above.    Maybe I would believe they were “pro-life” if they did these things….

Like the Pharisees of old, they sit in their chambers and pass judgement and then go home,  patting themselves on the back for their self-righteous actions.   Personally?  While the whole concept of “abortion on demand” tightens my jaw, I think they have neither the wisdom nor moral fiber to make those choices either.    



After all, 100% of pregnancies [both wanted and unwanted] are caused by ejaculations – and men certainly have control over that!  So why aren’t they making laws about keeping it in their pants?
