Stop spreading death

  • Follow Letters

As we stand at the graves of 50 million of our sons and daughters, we grieve for our loss. We grieve for the loss to our womanhood. Women are created with a gentle, compassionate, sympathetic nature that corresponds to the softness of her body. Scheduling an appointment for an abortion as she would for a manicure or oil change is a denial of what it means to be a woman.

Today’s woman demands to be in control and strong. But what is strong about lying on a table and allowing a doctor to rip your baby from your body? Abortion is instead complete submission to an industry built on greed and cover-ups. It is submission to the lie that killing innocent life is my right.

I challenge these women to see that real strength is standing against what is evil, destructive, and cruel. Many women in China today stand strong as they fight, hide, or pay fines to resist forced abortions.

When a woman kills her baby, she is killing part of herself. The eyes of our sons and daughters reflect our own soul and spirit back to us. Why smother that flickering light? I challenge American women to stop fueling the incinerators of death. Be strong enough to embrace the next generation with kind, gentle hearts.

"When a woman kills her baby,

"When a woman kills her baby, she is killing part of herself". I don't recall that lecture in Ob/gyn classes. What Ms. Lehn fails to comprehend is that the policy in China of forced abortion is no different than the desire of some in this country in forcing a woman to carry an unwanted pregnancy to term. That's why it's called "PRO-CHOICE", no one is forcing a woman into either decision. It's her body, it's her choice.

If murder is an inate right
Unpublished

then why are the prisons full of murderers. If the baby father kills the unborn child, he goes to prison. What of the father's right to his flesh? Set them free. They are guilty of nothing less than making a CHOICE to end another life that poses a threat to their own. Stalin, Hitler, Mao and others were in the same situation. Other human lives under their control presented an inconvenience.

I created this life and now I do not want it. I asked for a puppy but I do not want to change the litter box. Childish behavior until it involves a human life.

Why don't we ask an abortion survivor
Unpublished

how they view "personal choice murder"? Or their children and grandchildren? What of their right to life?

I don't know why some people

I don't know why some people try to separate life in the womb from life outside the womb. It's still life with a beating heart. How any woman could go through such a procedure as a matter of convenience is beyond me.

when a woman conceives her baby

there is a body within a body. What techfan is unable to understand is that he, himself, was once a body within a body.
The way to prevent unwanted pregnancies is for a woman to choose to exercise control over her body before there is another body dwelling within.
Even in China. Even in the mind of techfans.

To Be, Or Not To Be?

In another article(women in the military), someone wrote that "women are life-givers, not life-takers", well, that's how it once was. But, today it is nothing for a woman to arrange an abortion, and in most all of them, it Is a matter of "convenience", just as Patty-P said. Life and death, that's a whole other story........ymnbde, don't waste your words on techfan, it's a hopeless cause!

If the Ring wingers were really

racist, holier than than thou, mean and heartless we'd just shut up, stand back and allow Abortions.

In 3 generations, Abortions would reduced the Liberal voting roles by 10 to 20 % or about 30 million at at least.

But we are not and we do care and we voice our objects to Abortion on Demand, instead a medical procedure used only as a means to save the mothers life.

Techfan

Techfan is PRO DEATH, as longs as it is someone else that is doing the dying ! What does it say about society that refuses to protect the most innocent among us? Some seem to take pleasure in and celebrate the death of the unborn.

the Catholic Church is as well, since they don't consider a fetus a person.

fedex227, that's a broad

fedex227, that's a broad brush you are painting with. This situation involves lawyers using state law to represent ONE Catholic Hospital and it's doctors. It does not represent all of the Catholic faith but your comment or Techfan's shouldn't surprise me.

Unique DNA

TechFan, in your OB/Gyn class did you learn that every fetus has a unique DNA, different from the mother and therefore not the equivalent of her tissue? Would you favor the father being given the same "right" to kill his offspring while in the womb as the mother? It is after all just as much him as it is her. Or perhaps, he should have to wait until after delivery, so as not to endanger the health of the mother.
