Proverbs 31:8 NIV
Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute.
While having my morning coffee, the thought A voice that is crying, but is silent came to my mind. Yes there is a voice that is silent, but there is an army of people who are rising up and being their voice and speaking out to be the voice that is crying out. The army that is rising up are the voices of Mothers who conceived through rape, children that were conceived in rape, grandmothers of grandchildren conceived in rape, husbands whose wives were conceived in rape and also wives whose husbands were conceived in rape.
Recently a friend of mine testified before the New Mexico house committee to speak out in support of HB 390 Late-term Abortion Ban — without the rape exception. She was bullied by Republican Representative Rod Montoya who told her to be quiet. As I continued the past few days to read about what is going on in New Mexico and other states it breaks my heart, but at the same time I have seen this army binding together like never before. Different ministries working in different areas to be a voice. A few of the ministries that I see hard at work are Savethe1.com founded by Rebecca Kiessling and Choices4life.com founded by Juda Myers and Living Exceptions founded by women who were conceived in rape.
A lot of our pro-life laws have the exceptions conceived in rape, incest and special needs in them. I don’t understand why. Society likes to put stereotypes on people. Society will say that babies that are conceived in rape are a product of rape, a demon seed. I know that none of these are true. When I hear the product of rape I have a saying that goes like this. My adoptive parents did not go to the local store and pick me off a shelf, they went to the foster care home and loved me from the moment they saw me.
As for being called a demon seed that is not true either because Genesis 1:27 says So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. Also in Jeremiah 1:5 it says Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.
Another one that society likes to say is that children conceived in rape will end up like the rapist. Wrong again! I turned out to be a lot like my adoptive mother and my birth mother. I know them both so I can tell the difference. I remember when I met my birth mother my parents where with me and my mom saw my birth mom doing something and told me I do the same thing.
Since last August when I started to share my story, I have come to believe that it will be this army of people who God is using to over turn the holocaust of the unborn in our nation. Why do I believe this, because in 1966 Mississippi became the first state to legalize abortion only in cases of rape. Also Roe V Wade Norma Mccorvey who is known as Jane Roe in Roe v Wade had lied to say she was raped to be able to have a stronger case to have an abortion. The more that speak up and stand with us and with God’s help we will see laws changed and All life protected.
What matters is that God created each and every one of us for a purpose. The circumstances regarding my conception do not matter, what matters is that God knew me before I was born and how my conception would happen and since he is the only one that gives life he is the only one that can take it away.
