Speaking up

This weekend was a wonderful weekend. Spent time with my husband, taking a stand for the life of the unborn, and going to church.  On Saturday I was reading an article on Western Journalism’s Facebook page about a 12-year-old girl who was brutally raped and she chose to keep the baby. As I read through the comments some of the comments made me cry.

One of the comments someone said that she should have had an abortion because it would have prepared her for parenthood. This person also went on to say that abortion is not murder, but terminating the fetus. Well it got the best of me. My response was Abortion is murder it is taking a life. I then shared my story about how I found out I was conceived in rape. The person responded  back saying that terminating the fetus is not sin, just like being gay is not sin. My response again was Fetus in Latin means Little One so again Abortion is murder,  being gay is a sin and one day we all will stand before God.  After that I left the conversation went out to eat with my husband and grocery shopping. Came home checked the conversation again and was told to have fun washing myself in religious beliefs. Religion has nothing to do with it. It is about having a relationship with Jesus Christ. Someone told me that what I said was well said. Then I was called a brainwashed idiot.  Good thing I have learned not to take things personally. I actually laughed.

I shared the story with one of my Pastor’s sons and his response was Well, if you’re a brainwashed idiot then so am I. We both laughed.

I am thankful for the friends that God has given to me and the life that I live.
