Lately, abortion has been a hotter topic than usual. Amillia Taylor, now four months old, survived after being born 21 weeks post conception. She has become the poster child of the pro-life movement. Even Charles Gibson of ABC news said, “The fact that she has survived and is about to go home, is a miracle . . . and it may change what people think about life.”
I wouldn’t call it a miracle. Miracles happen when something cannot be explained by natural causes; walking on water, for example. Amillia is an example of a person’s will to live, and this is quite natural. She is also an example for 49 of America’s 50 states that allow abortions at the point which she was born.
If it’s not a life, why does it live? If it’s not living, why must it be aborted? It seems to me that the only thing being aborted is the responsibility of the over-indulged teen or the adult woman who makes poor relationship decisions.
RAPE! INCEST! The pro-choicers rant. Well, one of my best friends is here because her mother was raped. That terrible event brought forth a wonderful human being.
It has become socially accepted that victims of rape or incest have a need that abortion fills. Studies do not substantiate this, but they do show that the mental anguish of the abortion lasts far longer than the memory of the rape. The reason most people reach the wrong conclusion about abortion in cases of rape and incest is that the victims’ actual experiences are routinely left out of the debate.
This was the experience of Jackie Bakker: “Nobody told me about the pain I would feel . . . causing nightmares and deep depressions.”
Incest victims rarely agree to an abortion voluntarily. To them, having the baby exposes and subsequently ends the incestual relationship. It’s a way out. Rape and incest are red herrings for groups like Planned Parenthood that profit from Roe v. Wade.
Secondly, Stacey Campfield of Knoxville has proposed legislation requiring that all abortion victims be issued death certificates. Similarly, the Missing Angels Bill provides birth certificates for still-born children and has been passed in many states.
On NPR, the unofficial radio station of the Left, one lady said these types of bills would give rights to a “fetus.” Well, it doesn’t take a monkey scientist to figure that out, but it probably took two liberals.
Mothers, who want children, bond with the moving mass of corpuscles for nine months. Why shouldn‘t it have rights? NO, the butchers proclaim. Well, too late. This precedent has already been set, and in California of all places. Remember Scott Peterson? He was convicted of second degree murder in the death of his wife’s unborn baby, Conner.
Pro-choicers (a.k.a. I-want-what-I-wanters) make an argument that sounds logical, but pick it apart, and all they are doing is condoning the slaughter of millions.
Their last line of defense is, “It’s MY body.” Well, it’s Amillia’s body, too.
