Disclaimer: If you’re completely against American-made fetuses (a.k.a. pre-born babies) having a right to life, then you probably shouldn’t read this post, because you won’t like it. But if you’re interested in my point-of-view as an unwanted pregnancy-turned-adopted-child, then please read on. The life you save might be your own child’s.
Thank you, America, for not letting my father kill me before I was born in 1965.
Life before Roe v Wade
Women have rights, gays have rights, blacks have rights…why is it that in 21st Century America, pre-born babies have no rights? When I was born in 1965, I had a right to life, so I was given up for adoption. Sadly, those rights were taken away from people like me when Roe vs. Wade was passed in 1973. Now our moms are allowed to kill us…because it’s their right!
Many people in this country today do believe that abortion is a woman’s right, and it has nothing to do with murder because a real person isn’t being killed. It’s just a cluster of cells; devoid of feelings… like a tumor. However, our medical knowledge has evolved to the point where we really do know better. We can see what happens in the womb from the first few hours of conception and throughout the next nine months. It’s a process every single one of us has gone through, yet some people look at the creation of life as meaningless… or in my case, as a mistake.
I know a child born of rape, and he’s a wonderful person. His father committed a heinous crime against the child’s young mother, and he was allowed to live. Why should rape be a death sentence for the baby? Why is it preferable to kill an unwanted baby than find a better home for the child? However, most abortions have nothing to do with rape and everything to do with inconvenience… as well as making women available for sex at all times with no consequences. It’s a sick society that glorifies the killing of innocents–be they babies or animals–for purely selfish reasons.
I look at the murder of vulnerable pre-born humans as more than tragic because in committing abortion, a woman is actually depriving her own child of their right to be a part of their own family… or to grow up in another family. People know that sex leads to pregnancy, and that’s when decisions should be made. We all balk at the torture and killing of animals, but when doctors discuss with clinical detachment the dismembering of human fetuses as a way to harvest body organs, some people turn a blind eye and claim its all for the good of our society. Then they charge the whistle-blowers with the crime of telling the truth. Cute little puppies feel pain, and so do pre-born babies. That’s a truth that most people don’t want to talk about.
Babies are the most precious people in our country because of their potential as individuals. Each child that takes its first breath in this world is a miracle of life, yet some people talk about killing them as a right and a wonderful thing to do, and they vilify people like me, though I’m not sure why.
Here are some disturbing facts to chew on from a recent article in Time Magazine: “According to the Census, there were 2,541,000 deaths between July 2012 and July 2013, the most on record in one year. In nearly 1,000 counties, more Americans died than were born. Meanwhile, just 3,953,000 people were born during that time — the fewest since 1998. The fertility rate for 20- to 24-year-olds is now 83.1 births per 1,000 women, a record low, according to the Centers for Disease Control. That combination created a gap in births over deaths that is the lowest it has been in 35 years.”
People are now an endangered species. SAVE THE BABY HUMANS!!!
