Just when we think we have heard it all, we see this story out of Minneapolis might top them all of late. When abortion is theory or something “those people” somewhere else do, it’s easier to dismiss, but this couple has a 17 week old totally healthy baby boy that they are trying to decide, via majority opinion on a website, whether or not to abort their baby.
I’m not convinced that I want to change the status quo. I feel that as I age I’ve actually gotten more selfish and set in my ways.I’m afraid that I will eventually regret starting a family and "settling down", as they say.I fear that the constant pressure to be the perfect wife and mother while maintaining a full-time job will eventually cause my brain to implode and lead to a nervous breakdown.
The response we’ve had so far has been overwhelming. We’ve even had people offer to adopt rather than go through with the possibility of an abortion vote. While we deeply appreciate the thought, we wouldn’t want to take away the opportunity for the public to make this decision.
Voting is such an integral part of the American identity.We vote on everything from the best singer on American Idol to who the next leader of the free world will be.Wouldn’t it be nice to voice your opinion and have it actually make a difference in the real world? Why not vote on whether to continue or abort an actual pregnancy?
Thus says the Lord GOD: “The city sheds blood in her own midst, that her time may come; and she makes idols within herself to defile herself. You have become guilty by the blood which you have shed, and have defiled yourself with the idols which you have made. You have caused your days to draw near, and have come to the end of your years; therefore I have made you a reproach to the nations, and a mockery to all countries. Those near and those far from you will mock you as infamous and full of tumult. (Ezekiel 22:3-6)
That the blood of all the prophets which was shed from the foundation of the world may be required of this generation, from the blood of Abel to the blood of Zechariah who perished between the altar and the temple. Yes, I say to you, it shall be required of this generation. (Luke 11:50-51)
