With the personal convictions that I was created and formed to have, I have to say this story at the bottom of this post grieves my heart in so many ways.
I understand there are a many opinions on this subject and the media runs rampant with arguments regarding the matter. I also know that opinions are opinions and I typically would shy away from the “political”, but I don’t believe in this instance that would be me being honest to my own heart. This is a moral issue that we have made political because it fits the political agenda.
If you have or know anyone that has supported abortion by first or second hand means, I want to let you know that I love you. By no means do I hate you. We live in a broken BROKEN world and in that brokenness, we turn to ailments. This world that tries so desperately to find the meaning to this life as that cure. When we turn to science and logic to be the ultimate answer, we tend to stray from our inherent conscience, we run away from love, and into selfishness. We ask questions like “what is the point to YOU if you can’t benefit ME?”. That is the core issue and problem in abortion and many other issues this world holds. It is practicing logic over love. We assume that if a child is born in less than perfect circumstances; birth defects, single mom, rape, poor household, ect. that they will not have a meaningful life and may burden and complicate our lives. But love and friendship is best displayed when we can be there to help carry the burden’s of others. In the darkest times, love shines brightest.
My personal belief is that our country has strayed far away from the core principles that it was founded on. It has taken away the freedom of unborn children and giving far too much control to their parents. That “freedom” being the belief that an unborn baby is simply just a part of a women’s body and not a living, breathing person who deserves a chance to live.
I want to encourage you to set aside logic for this moment and try thinking more out of love. Because if we have not love, what do we have? If we have all the knowledge of science and the wonders of the world, but not love, what is the point. Don’t let the mind be stronger than the heart. Don’t allow yourself to miss out on experiencing the fullness of this life.
I love all you guys!
