I assume most of you have figured out from my Catholic, conservative, simply-unending-by-today's-standards family size that I am unabashedly Pro-Life. If not, well you're a little slow on the uptake. I think babies are people,and they should have rights. I base this on the fact that every time I have been pregnant, a person miraculously appeared from my body 9 months later. An entirely separate human being from myself. To terminate that life which I legally could have done, but never morally could have- would have kept one of my children from entering this world. And I don't think you need to argue with a woman who has spent approximately 90 months of her life puking over a toilet that pregnancy can be difficult. I got that one down pretty good. You also don't have to tell her that it can be life threatening- as I spent my whole pregnancy with Andrew ( he was my first ) on my back since I had a placental abruption and I was told I could easily bleed to death and he be lost any second. I got the danger part.
Here is something else I will tell you. I know a few women who have had abortions. I know they are still very sad about that. I am still your friend and I love you and am so sorry, and I never forget you on days like today. I promise I hold you even tighter in my heart and am always here to listen if you need me, or give a hug.
I also know some folks who support abortion rights, and while I disagree with you vehemently on this issue, and cannot forfeit that position even a tiny bit -I still love you all too ( but for goodness sake when are you going to change your minds???? Hurry up would ya? The clock is tick, tick, ticking!)
Remember Life is good- don't take it for granted!
