I put the word common in quotes, as it would seem “Common Sense” has very much flipped – it is now UNCOMMON SENSE. My plea with this post is, as always, the life of unborn children. Let’s begin.
Respectfully, I would like an answer from those who support abortion in the following questions:
1) At least 23 states have fetal homicide laws that apply to any stage of pregnancy; however, these same states indict no criminalization for legal abortion. The question becomes. . . If someone harms a pregnant woman, and in the process murders her unborn child, this person is charged as such – murderer. But, if someone goes and pays to have their unborn child legally murdered, this is called a right, and those that oppose this right are shamed for telling women that they have murdered their child – is the party that opposes abortion truly screwy? Or are they practicing “common” sense?
2) This next point admittedly doesn’t follow logic, but it does fall into the category of uncommon sense…You have been married for two years – you find out you are pregnant. You both are overjoyed. During those nine months you keep your friends updated: “Our ball of tissue is two months along!”… “Next week we are going to find out the gender of our clump of cells!”… “Boy honey, this pregnancy has been long, can’t wait until the day we can morph this worthless glob into a fully valuable human being.” . . . I am guessing that when I said ‘worthless’ you cocked your head slightly. Of course, those previous statements are ridiculous. And we all know they are ridiculous. Because, truly, at the core, we all know that the unborn child has incredible value! Indeed, that is why we ask “when is your baby due?”… everyone knows this. It’s human life. It’s a person.
The unborn child is as valuable as anyone. Yes, it is in a more vulnerable, less developed state – this should only incur more protection and love! Not more laws allowing “healthcare” systems to make money off of dicing up our small boys and girls. I pray that hearts would be changed in this area. And I am confident hearts will be changed! God will continue to show people the preciousness of these little men and women. Let’s pray for that. God bless.
