yesterday and was trying to get through before we left for Mass. I was copying and pasting
the article I wrote for the newspaper, the one that was too long and so they posted it online.
Anyway, when I pasted the article onto my blog it did not cooperate and I didn't have time
to figure out what was wrong. I hit the save button and left for Mass. The post I started
yesterday is below - Have a wonderfully blessed week! (I figured out what was wrong and
Hello out there! I hope your weekend has been full of blessings! Ours has been
action packed. But as for today, the Lord's day, we have taken it easy. We will be
leaving for Mass in about twenty minutes so this will be a quick post. I know that
some of you weren't able to read my letter/article the newspaper posted online.
(The link was in my previous post.) So I am copying and pasting it below. Please
pray for the unborn and their families. God bless you all!
This letter is in response to the article written by, John C. Moritz of USA Today Network, Austin Bureau from the Sunday, March 19, 2017 Standard Times Newspaper. The article is about House Bill 4260 filed by Jessica Farrar, member of the Texas House. Moritz calls the bill satirical and Farrar describes it as, “men’s health and safety”. From what I read, Farrar is tired of women having to undergo a sonogram and hear their baby’s heartbeat before an abortion. She wrote this bill to try and make a point. Instead of satire or trying to make a point, let’s have an honest dialogue about abortion and a woman’s right to choose. I think a woman should be told all aspects of any procedure she is having done and that definitely includes an abortion. It is time to be honest and realize that once a woman becomes pregnant there are now two lives to consider. If the woman is dealing with an unplanned or crisis pregnancy then we need to reach out and help her find all the resources that are available. There are many options depending on the woman’s age and circumstances. If she is young, there are maternity homes available that provide shelter for her and her baby. These homes allow the mother to finish school, work, and teach the young mother the proper life skills needed to be a good parent. There are also homes where the young woman can live until her baby is born if she is choosing adoption for her child. The mother is able to choose to have an open adoption or a closed adoption. The mother can also be involved in choosing her baby’s parents.
If a woman chooses abortion there is no going back. The abortion takes the life of her baby, and no matter what some people may say, she is going to carry that burden in her heart. Stop making it sound like abortion is no big deal and stop saying that the unborn baby is a blob of tissue. Be honest and tell the truth. You are not helping them by lying. Having an abortion means death for the baby.
If the young lady or woman is in her first trimester, give her the information about what is happening during this stage of development. Do the same thing with the second trimester and the third trimester. Yes, abortions are performed in the third trimester also. Late term abortions are available in some states.
Let them hear their baby’s heartbeat and show them the sonogram. Then if the young lady or woman still chooses to go through with the abortion at least she has been given all the facts. It is not about making them feel bad, it is about letting them know the truth. I do think that when given all the information about their baby’s development more times than not, the young woman will choose life for her unborn baby. And that is good! Babies are a gift, they are not a choice. How did we get to this point? When did someone’s choice become more important than someone else’s life?
I keep on hearing about women’s rights. Are you talking about all women’s rights or just the women who are pro-choice? Is there an age restriction on those rights? What about the rights of the babies? Those who are aborted because their parents wanted a daughter instead of a son, or vice versa, you know, sex selection abortions. I am so tired of all the hypocrisy. These poor babies, don’t you see, they are the innocent victims in all of this, in your childish games of satire and in the abortion industry where money is made from their deaths. Isn’t it ironic how I hear you say that women can be anything they want to be, do anything they want to do until it comes to a crisis pregnancy. Then women are told they are not strong enough, not capable enough, that their lives will be easier if they have an abortion. Talk about a slap in the face! Being a mother is a gift and once again the innocent babies are the ones that die because of your “abortion is no big deal” propaganda!
What about the life of the unborn baby? Odds are at least half of the babies aborted are girls. Baby girls that will never get to grow up and become women. What about their rights? What about the baby boys that are aborted? Baby boys that will never get to grow up and become men. What about their rights? Shame on you and shame on us all for letting this happen.
When a couple is planning to have a baby, wanting to have a baby, excited about having a baby – guess what? Right from the very moment they find out they are pregnant everyone says it’s a baby! Who says, “I'm pregnant but don't get excited until it's a baby?” I mean it, have you ever heard anyone say that?!
Well, when a woman finds out that she is pregnant and everyone is not excited, it’s still a baby. And more than that, there is always a couple praying for a baby they can adopt, praying for a baby of their very own.
Adoption is a loving life option that is not talked about enough. Adoption for the “human babies” needs to be promoted and advertised to let women and men of all ages know that there is a life choice out there for their unborn baby. Not everyone is ready to be a parent, so let’s share the news about adoption. I was blessed to have been adopted at birth and I am so thankful for my life.
I pray that someday abortions won’t be legal anymore. I also pray that someday all people will come to see the true horror of abortion and that no one will choose to have one. Help is available for women who want to keep their babies and adoption is an option for those who are not able to raise their babies.
In closing, here are some numbers for you to think about:
Number of abortions performed in the United States since Roe vs Wade 1973 – 59,322,090.7
Number of abortions performed by Planned Parenthood since 1970 – 7,681,442.5
Number of abortions performed by Planned Parenthood this year – 72,096.5
Number of abortions performed in the United States this year after 16 weeks gestation – 9,892.7
We don’t need House Bills filed to make a point. We need to save the babies who are dying from abortion – By the time you read this article the number of abortions will be higher in the United States and in the world.
Worldwide there is an abortion every second.
How many babies died from abortion just while you were reading this article?
We must speak up! We have to be their voice!
