I did not write this, and I take no credit for it at all. But I do share it.
I am only eight inches long
but I have all my organs.
I love the sound of your voice.
Every time I hear it
I wave my arms and legs.
The sound of your heartbeat
is my favorite lullaby.
today I learned how to suck my thumb.
If you could see me
You could definitely tell that I am a baby.
I'm not big enough to survive outside my home though.
It's so warm and nice in here.
You know what Mommy?
I'm a boy!!
I hope that makes you happy.
I always want you to be happy.
I don't like it when you cry.
You sound so sad.
It makes me sad too
and I cry with you even though
you can't hear me.
My hair is starting to grow.
It is very short and fine
but I will have a lot of it.
I spend a lot of my time exercising.
I can curl my head and curl my fingers and toes
and stretch my arms and legs
I am becoming quite good at it too.
You went to the doctor today.
Mommy, he lied to you.
He said that I'm not a baby.
I am a baby Mommy, your baby.
I think and feel.
Mommy, whats ambortion?
I can hear that doctor again.
I don't like him.
He seems cold and heartless.
Something is intruding my home.
The doctor called it a needle.
Mommy, what is it? It burns!
Please make him stop!
I cant get away from it!
Mommy! HELP ME!
I am OK.
I am in Jesus' arms.
He is holding me.
He told me about abortion.
Mommy, why didn't you want me?
Every abortion is just...
One more heart that was stopped
Two more eyes that will never see
Two more hands that will never touch
Two more legs that will never run
One more mouth that will never speak.
Abortion is wrong. People are here on earth for a reason, and some mothers don’t want their babies.
If you are against abortion copy and paste!!
Marie, that’s a really good way to put it however, sadly enough people still won’t listen to that or anything, they’ll listen to what they want to hear and ignore the rest Thanks for that though, I might use that next time I’m in one of those debatesReplyDelete
Woops, found a typo…the second sentence should read, “…that an unborn baby ISN’T human until it is born.”ReplyDelete
Darren, that’s an excellent question, and so important! I recently got into a FB debate with someone who tried to argue that an unborn baby is human until it is born. I quoted Scott Klusendorf (a pro-life advocate), who wrote a small booklet called “Pro-Life 101. Some of what he wrote might answer your question: “The unborn entity is genetically distinct from its parents. Unlike sperm and ovum, the zygote possesses the active capacity to develop into an embryo, fetus, infant, child, and adult. True, sperm and egg are human cellular material, but left to themselves, they will never become a human being. But the zygote already has what is needed to function as a self-integrated human being. Hence, what actually comes into existence at conception is not a “fertilized egg” or a mere clump of human cells, but a distinct, unified, self-integrating human organism. All genetic material needed to drive the unborn’s development is there. That is to say, at no point does the distinct organism that came into being undergo a “substantial change” or change of nature. It is human and will remain so. It is an immature human, as is an infant, but a human being nonetheless. Living things do not become entirely different creatures in the process of changing their form. Rather, they develop according to a certain physical pattern precisely because of the kind of being they already are.ReplyDelete
The unborn, therefore, is not a potential human, but a human with great potential!”
However, part of the problem is by the 6th month, most people will admit it’s actually a baby. See in my Biology textbook from school it calls it an embryo until week 9, which then it’s technically a fetus, by which point a lot of people will admit it’s a human (our bio teacher touched on this too a bit and how they justify abortion in the terminology). I guess this is technically the correct terminology, but it’s this terminology that supposedly justifies abortion, so what do you say to someone who says that it isn’t a human until the 9th week or maybe even later then? How would you tell someone that it is still human in the first 8 weeks?ReplyDelete
