As I sit here thinking about the way that our world is going, I am thankful for the positive things that I read. Just recently I read an article on Lifesitenews.com by Dustin Siggins.
The article is about Mike Huckabee’s response to CNN’s Dana Bash about the 10-year-old girl in Paraguay who was raped and gave birth to a baby.
There are some good things that Mike Huckabee said. He said, “A 10-year-old girl being raped is horrible,” “But does it solve a problem by taking the life of an innocent child? And that’s really the issue,” said the former Arkansas governor. “I know people. I worked for a man for several years, James Robison, who was the result of a rape. His mother went to three doctors in Houston, Texas, in 1943, begged doctors to abort the baby. None of them would do it. They all refused. Today, his organization feeds, cares for, and brings living capacity for water to hundreds of thousands of people across the world. That would never have happened, Dana.”
Mike Huckabee also said, “No, it isn’t easy,” Huckabee replied. “And I wouldn’t even pretend that it’s anything other than a terrible tragedy. But let’s not compound the tragedy by taking yet another life. And I always think we sometimes miss the fact that, when an abortion happens, there are two victims. One is the child. The other is that birth mother, who often will go through extraordinary guilt years later, when she begins to think through the – what happened with the baby, with her.”
While there is much negativity going on in the news and the world today. One of the greatest things that I have heard in a long time is a Presidential Candidate say, “I just come down on the side that life is precious, every life has worth and value.”-Mike Huckabee
When are we as a nation going to realize that every life is valuable? When are we going to stop using rape as an excuse to have an abortion? Just the other day I was sharing my story with someone and told them that my Biological great aunt could have arranged for my birthmother to have an illegal abortion. Their response back to me was I am glad her aunt gave her that option. What they said did not set well with me, and I got sick to my stomach. I have been sharing my rape conception story for a year now, and this was the first time that someone said that to me. It was as if they were saying that I should be dead
We as a nation need to get down on our knees and repent of our wickedness and realize that we are created by God, who sees us valuable. To him we are special, we are loved, we are valuable. I just want to say, Thank you, Mike Huckabee, for standing up and seeing every life is precious and valuable.
