I Was Ignorant...
never really paid attention to the reality of abortion. Recently, with the Kermit Gosnell trial going on, as well as undercover videos being posted by Live Action, I have been exposed to the details of abortion, details that I happily ignored up until now.
There is something about holding my own newborn son, loving him, nursing him, looking at his perfect little hands and feet - when I compare the beauty of life found in him with the thought of little babies being torn apart, limb by limb in the mother's womb, babies that are being born alive and fighting for their lives while being left to die - that is the horror of abortion. I can't help but think "they're killing babies just like him. Abortion is someone ripping him apart in my womb. Abortion is him being born alive and put in a toxic solution." I was ignorant to the sheer evil that is happening every day in our country, and now my heart is grieving. There was a part of me that never watched videos or read much about abortion because I didn't want to know, I didn't want to know how truly horrible it is, but I can no longer be ignorant. We can no longer be ignorant. For weeks the mainstream media has ignored the Kermit Gosnell trial, desiring to keep Americans ignorant of the infanticide that is happening, but we need to know. We need to know just how bad it is so we will motivated to help fight abortion. Here are some links to videos and articles that will disturb you, I promise. They have kept me awake at night. But don't be ignorant. Learn, pray, fight, and support pro-life people and organizations like Live Action, Abby Johnson, and Life Site News.
"But I feel that the greatest destroyer of peace today is abortion, because it is a war against the child - a direct killing of the innocent child - murder by the mother herself. And if we accept that a mother can kill even her own child, how can we tell other people not to kill one another?" ~Mother Teresa
