My Husband "Subvet" says that when our first son "Sonshine" was born the sun rose on our world, when our second son "Gator" was born the sun laughed and when our daughter "Sugars" was born all the flowers bloomed. That says it all.

Any Questions?

Nope, no questions. I do not agree with abortion at any time, even in the case of rape or incest, and I have a problem with it even to save the mother's life.

I'm past childbearing due to medical problems resulting in a hysterectomy, but even if it were me or my daughter I would struggle with a decision to terminate a pregnancy to save my or my daughter's life.

I'm not trying to start a big ruckus. This are my own personal convictions, and I'm not trying to push my convictions on anyone else.

I'm right with you by the way.

wow, that's a powerful article there.

i have personally experiened a full term stillbirth, and an early miscarriage that resulted in a d&c. burying your infant child, and having to have a surgical procedure to remove a fetus that no longer has a heartbeat definitely opens your eyes to the sheer preciousness and miraculousness (is that a word?) of a pregnancy, not to mention how much more it is when you are finally blessed with a healthy baby that you get to bring home with you.

thanks for sharing this post.

although i know enough about what an abortion looks like, the description this doctor gives leaves no room for speculation of what it is or isn't. it made me sick to my stomach envisioning it.

i wonder if those who do vote for abortion were to actually witness this heinous crime would still feel the same way? kinda like the doctor. at what point would you realize this was someone's son or daughter.

thanks for sharing.

I personally believe that a level 2 sonogram should be REQUIRED before every abortion. Take a look at that beating heart and those kicking feet before you make your oh-so-important-choice

MM, after losing Angel, I was surprised at how much more pro-life I became. I was always pro-life, but it suddenly took on a personal tone. I understood intimately the fragility of life. I knew personally that we, as humans, have NO RIGHT, to take a baby's life. It's not a political issue for me, although it does weigh heavily in my decision-making process when I go to vote. It's a matter of the heart. I firmly believe that abortion in this country will only come to an end when enough hearts are changed.
