For some of us, abortion isn’t something one can just get over or ignore. If a few inches of flesh are not the determining factor in whether someone is alive and has value. I would challenge you to watch an abortion before you make up your mind about the issue. The strongest human desire is to stay alive. It’s why most suicide attempts fail. You can see that even in children in the womb. I know of women who have seen it while whacked out on drugs after having an abortion while their mangled, aborted baby is still alive next to them.
This song has been playing in my head lately. It’s a song Jason Upton wrote about (among other things) not being aborted by his mother. (His father was Sioux – that’s the reason for the drums and such in this version of the song.) It just sort of sticks me. I was saved by the power of love, I was snatched from the fires of greed.
