Misconceptions About What Pro-Life Means.

Pro-life is not “anti-choice”. Pro- life means what it says, we are for life for all human beings, from conception to natural death. This simply means we do not believe in abortion, nor do we believe in euthanasia.

We DO believe in choices for women. Those choices are: Abstinence, Birth control, parenting, or adoption. Just  because we do not feel that murdering a child in the womb should not be a choice, doesn’t mean that we are against all choices.

Pro-life does not mean we are a bunch of old white men that want to control women. On the contrary, most pro-lifer’s I have met are women. Below are the demographics from my page on facebook:

DemographicsFemales: 70.3%, Males 29.2% You will also note that the largest percentages of pro-life women fall into the child-bearing age range.

Pro-life does not mean that we only care about the fetus, and don’t give a rip about  the child or the mother once he/she is born. Crisis pregnancy centers, run by pro-life groups. assist the mother in learning how to be a good parent. They provide her with food and clothing for the child after he/she is born. Abolitionist societies all over the united states collect food, clothing and money to help new mothers in need.

Pro-life does not mean we are against women’s rights. We are all for women’s rights, just not the right to murder her child in the womb. It’s as simple as that.

Until next time. God Bless you all, and  have a Merry Christmas!

 

 

 

 

 

Wouldn’t It Be Nice if Pro-Choicers Were Really Pro-Choice?

“Pro-choicers” aren’t really pro-choice. If they really were, they’d respect other people’s choices.

If you tell a choicer you’re a stay at home mom, do you think that they’d respect that choice? Nope. I’ve been called a leech, others have told me that they have been told that they were making the “wrong” choice. I guess if you don’t abort, they won’t respect your choice.

Tell a choicer that you are going to home-school your kids. Do you think that they will respect that choice? Nope. They’ll proceed to ridicule and tell the mother that she’s brainwashing her kids and that they will be socially repressed misfits.

Tell a choicer that you are going to put your child up for adoption. Do you think that they would respect that choice? Nope. They will either ridicule you for being a “baby factory” or try to make you feel like a monster for giving your child away. What the heck is up with that?? You’re not monster by having your child’s limbs torn off in your uterus, but you’re  a monster by giving the child a life and make a childless couple into a family? That is one I’ll never understand.

The only time a choicer will ever respect your choice is when that choice agrees with their rhetoric.

Tragedy in Newtown

I didn’t hear about the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown until I was on my way to pick up my eldest daughter. They were reporting it on the radio. My first thought was “why?” Why does this happen?

When I heard that the children that the gunman killed were Kindergarteners, I felt a pain in my chest. As the mother of 2 kindergarten age kids, I couldn’t even begin to imagine the pain that the parents of those children were going through.

It was an hour later that my two little ones got off the school bus. I was fighting back tears, thankful that my children were home safe, and again feeling the pain for  the parents who wouldn’t be seeing their children again.

I don’t know the history of Adam Lanza, what his home life was like or what mental illnesses he may have suffered. What I do know is that society failed him. Teachers failed to see that he had issues, his mother wouldn’t talk about it to anyone or reach out for help until it was too late. Society failed him because mental illness has been treated like something to be ashamed of, creating a group of people that feel they need to hide their condition and deal with it themselves rather than seek help from teachers, friends or relatives.

Society is quick to blame the guns. A gun is merely a tool. Without a human being to utilize that tool, it will sit there; useless. Its not the guns that are the problem, its the people.

If someone really wants to harm others, they will find a way to do it. Timothy McVeigh used a fertilizer bomb and a rental truck. No one has called for a ban on fertilizer or rental trucks. The 9/11 terrorists used box cutters and airplanes. Are those banned? Nope. Banning something will not make it go away, nor will it reduce the amount of crimes committed.

Evil exists. it always has and it always will. Evil doesn’t care if guns are banned, unless of course it wants to kill a lot of people, then it goes where it knows its intended victims are unarmed, like a school.

Do I think Adam Lanza was evil? No, I don’t. I understand that he was a disturbed young man. Satan saw this and realized that he could manipulate him into committing an evil act. Adam was just as much a victim as the children and teachers. Right before one of the greatest events in all of Christianity, Satan pulls this out of his hat. What better way to inflict pain on humans than to take away their most cherished?

God Bless the citizens of Newtown, the families of the victims and the survivors. May they grieve their friends and loved ones, and may they find peace in the midst of the hurt.

 

“My Body, My Choice”? Not Anymore Thanks to Obamacare.

I often wonder why pro-choice advocates are so gung-ho over Obamacare. I know that they are practically orgasmic over the free birth control and abortions, but do they realize what they are giving up?

It will no longer be “my body my choice” when it comes to your medical care. Someone else will be making that choice for you. A stranger will decide what health plan you can have. You have no choice in the matter. Only government approved care will be given. Right now a heart patient and his doctor have the freedom to choose whether he should have a bypass or a stent. When the government takes over, that choice is gone.

A pregnant woman and her doctor do not have a choice between a vaginal delivery or a c-section. The government will decide. If that had been the case when I had my twins, and a c-section was not allowed, both my babies and I would be dead.

So pro-choicers, being blinded by the dazzling brilliance of free birth control and abortions, couldn’t see that they were handing over their precious “body autonomy” over to the government. Sure, you can kill your child if you want to, that’s covered. Life saving treatments for yourself? Not so much

Raising Our Daughters To Be Ladies And Sons To Be Gentlemen.

Recently I came across this graphic on facebook:

LadiesThat quote gives us something to think about doesn’t it? If we want our daughters to be ladies and our sons to be gentlemen,  we need to teach them how instead of hoping they figure it out on their own.

We already teach them (At least I hope everyone does) to use good manners; saying “please” “thank you” and “excuse me” to name a few. I also teach my daughter’s to address their elders in a formal manner, using “Mr.” and “Mrs.” instead of first names. My mother always addressed our neighbors in this manner. I do it today.  To me, it shows the person respect.  My mother was a lady, and she raised me to be one as well. I remember she would dress for the grocery store they way some women would dress for the office. I found it a bit humorous that she’d be in her dress clothes, makeup on and hair up in a french twist, then climb into her little red Ford Ranger (complete with lift-kit) and head off to the store. She never walked out the door unless she looked like a presentable lady, and never let me out the door until I was as well.

Being a Lady or a Gentleman goes beyond manners. It also means teaching our kids to respect themselves as well. Girls need to learn that she doesn’t have to swear, drink alcohol, take drugs or have sex in order to be cool. Boys need to learn the same thing.

For girls, being a lady doesn’t mean that she is weak or repressed. It takes much more willpower and self-control to be a lady. I managed it until I was 26. I(I stumbled in the not-having-sex department, but I am now married to the man I stumbled with.)  NOT giving in to peer-pressure to drink or have sex is a lot harder than giving in. By not giving in, she will have more self respect for herself instead of caving in and having regrets. If your daughter possesses these qualities, she will go farther in this world, and if she chooses to marry, will attract a man that will treat her with respect.

Our sons should be taught to respect women. Don’t cuss in front of them. Don’t pressure a girl to do something that she doesn’t want to do, and stay away from those that are all too willing to do things they’ll regret later. Hold a door for others, be it a woman or a man. Use “Sir” and “Ma’am”. when speaking to a girl’s parents. Simple little things like that go a long way.

Just think, if all it took was our kids having a little self respect and respect for others, Drug and alcohol abuse wouldn’t be a huge problem.  The teen pregnancy rate would drop. Imagine what that would do to the abortion rates.

Until next time, God Bless.

P. S. Well, isn’t this interesting? When using the proof-reading feature, it marked the word “ladies” as biased language but not the word “gentlemen”. Go figure.

 

Shameful: Pro-Aborts Capitalizing on Savita Halappanavar and Ignoring Tonya Reaves

Savita Halappanavar died on October 28, 2012 from Septicemia, commonly known as Blood Poisoning. It was not caused by her pregnancy and an abortion would not have saved her life.

The liberal media, always ready to pounce on anything that would promote the liberal agenda, reported that Savita was refused an abortion when she went to the hospital. Anyone who would bother to look into the condition of Septicemia would have discovered that abortion would not have increased her chances of survival. Septicemia is a “serious, life-threatening infection that gets worse very quickly” – and abortion is not a treatment for it. A quick look here and here reveals that abortion is never a recommended to alleviate suffering from this disorder. Abortion is actually one of the causes of the disorder.

None of this matters to the pro-abortion crowd. All they care about is advancing their agenda any way they can. If they truly were “pro-choice” and “pro-woman” They would have been just as outraged at the death of Tonya Reaves after a botched abortion at a Planned Parenthood Clinic. After all, they claim that the procedure is “safe”. So where is the outrage for Tonya? Why aren’t they out there advocating for safer procedures and regulations to ensure the safety of the women they claim to care about so much?

The deaths of both women are tragic. The difference between the two is for Savita, abortion would not have saved her life, but for Tonya, abortion ended hers.

 

 

 

Pro-Choice? Seems More Like “No Choice”

Planned Parenthood is supposed to be pro-choice right? That means supporting women in ALL choices. So if they are so Pro-choice, why do only 7% of their clinics offer prenatal services? What about adoption services? None of their clinics have an adoption counselor.

If Planned Parenthood is so “pro-woman” why don’t they offer follow up care after an abortion? No sorry. All you get is  a sack with some low-quality birth control pills and sent  on your merry way. No instruction on how to take care of yourself. If you have problems afterward they don’t want to see you, they pawn you off on the local ER. (which is actually a good thing, since that’s where the real doctors are.)

So, no prenatal care and no adoption services. Doesn’t sound like they offer much “choice” do they?

Talk to any “Pro-choice” advocate and you get the same answers. “A woman shouldn’t be forced into motherhood” or “shouldn’t be forced to gestate” in the case of adoption. If the woman is choosing to be a mother or choosing adoption, then a “pro-choice” advocate should respect and support that choice, but they don’t. They shame women into thinking that they aren’t capable of raising a child. They call it a “mistake”. They think it’s better that a woman kill her child and wound her soul. Yeah, that’s “pro-woman”.

It’s not Pro-Choice. It’s Pro-abortion. I stopped using the term Pro-choice a long time ago, after realizing that these folks don’t support a “choice” unless that choice is abortion.
