I've told you before that I often avoid visual things like movies, and reading material that contain images that may occupy my mind.  Even things others may be able to watch without any affect on their lives, I just can't handle.  So I don't.

My mother recently asked me to watch a video while I was at her home which I didn't realize would contain extremely graphic REAL images of abortion at different stages and ending with a partial birth abortion.  I will never forget them although I wish I could.

Many were babies that could have been born and lived on their own with little help.

These are all human children.  How anyone could think otherwise I don't understand.  I don't have a dislike of, or un-forgiveness for any woman who has ever had an abortion, I honestly ache for them and for the babies.  And our God is a God longing to forgive.

I believe with all my heart however, that God is deeply saddened by our apparent disregard for anything that causes us an inconvenience.

I once begged a young lady who wanted an abortion not to have one.  I will never forget that conversation.  It was an inconvenience, embarrassment for her family, and she was young.  I tried to explain that her relationship choice which resulted in an unwanted baby contained no grounds for abortion.  There are opportunities to prevent pregnancy by choosing many forms of birth control.  I went on to explain this baby could fulfill desperate people's longing to adopt, if she would just have the child and give it up for adoption.  I begged her, we prayed, I begged....   3 days later she killed her baby.

This young lady claims the name of Christ - I am not to judge anyone, but how believers could support abortion in anyway is completely outside my ability to understand.

I don't claim to know the answers for pregnancies resulting from rape or incest.  Experiencing that may to compare to death itself. guess about babies that are aborted from a rape or incest is that God loves those babies just as much.
