"This was not my Juno moment, where all of a sudden I bit my lower lip and recognized the “life” inside of me. If I could have I would have ripped the ******* thing out with my bear hands on the spot. It just freaked me out that it had a definitive shape. That maybe its size would make it harder to yank out. Or that my beautifully circular womb would get banged up in the process."
On the way into the abortion clinic she encountered pro-life demonstrators and related how,
"A carbuncular high school girl kept my pace and told me “her group” had the funds to support my baby. I wanted to tell her that I hoped it was twins so I could doubly break her blessed heart."
It was a sick and ugly experience, reading through that blog. One that left me feeling dirty and contaminated. What was so appalling was the complete lack of humanity and sanctity for life.
While I oppose abortion, and consider it to be a great and telling evil of our times, I can still find it in my heart to empathize with the young woman who feels she has no other choice and is devastated by her decision. I want to hold her hand and tell her that it isn't that bad, that she has no idea of the miracle of seeing a new life born, the joy she'll experience, the way that life will utterly and completely change her....into someone better than she was before......or at least help her to understand the value of life, to appreciate the gift she'd be giving to somebody else by allowing them to adopt her child; somebody who appreciated and understood the value of that life.
With this woman.....I have nothing to say. I'm only left to bear witness to the damage that has been done in society by feminism. The destruction that has been wrought upon the female conscience and soul.
I don't care if there are women who choose not to be mothers. What I do care about is the destruction of motherhood. I care about the way the creation of life has been devalued to the point of apathy, contempt, disdain and even mockery. Regardless of whether or not a woman chooses to take upon herself the mantle of motherhood, it should always be treated as it is.......a great privilege and a sacred responsibility.
Something intrinsic has been broken inside many women today. The disturbing look into the mind of a woman preparing to end the life of her child is only one aspect of the damage of which I speak. Looking beyond the selfish and unconscionable disregard for the sanctity of life, we see this destruction of womanhood extending into motherhood, where women frequently sacrifice their children on the altar of their own selfish and deceitful interests.
Motherhood has always been a generally selfless calling, one in which the needs of her children are placed above her own, where the welfare of her children supercedes her own welfare. We seldom see this selflessness in our family court systems today, where children are used as pawns to exact revenge and maintain control over ex-husbands, nor is it in evidence when women break apart their marriages and families because they aren't happy, fulfilled or living the fairy tale existence they'd imagined.
Motherhood stands right in line with today's other casualities; fatherhood, families, honesty, integrity, selflessness.....everything valuable and of worth in exchange for that which is corrupt, vile and worthless.
With that said, I add to Integrity and Honesty, the value of Motherhood to my Code For Women. There is nothing greater that a woman can be than a good mother. No matter what aspirations she has or what heights she attains outside of it, there is nowhere a woman can do more good (or damage) than in the lives of her children and within her own home.
