Growing up, I was taught that male and female were created in the image of God. Life is a sacred gift and should be valued with the highest respect. It saddens me that we live in a world where life is not valued. As a nation we have lost more than the value of life, we have turned our back on God, we recently now allow same sex people get married, we have abortion which is the Holocaust of our day.
In 1966, Mississippi, became the first state to legalize abortion only in cases of rape. Babies conceived in rape have been the scapegoat from the beginning. People who were conceived in rape we get called so nasty things. We get called “the rapists child, the evil seed, the product of a rapist. We get referred to as gerbils eating their young.
I found out in January of 2008 that I was conceived in rape, and since August of 2014 I have been sharing the story. Just recently I was referred to as a gob of goo.
So many people say they are pro-life, but expect and don’t want to talk about the exceptions. Why don’t they? Is it because it is too controversial? Is it because it’s difficult to talk about? Is it because they just don’t care?
Just recently, while reading an article on www.lifesitenews.com by Ben Johnson. Lindsey Graham, (R) Senator from South Carolina recently said, On today’s “Morning Joe” program on MSNBC, Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-SC, told Mike Barnicle that Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio are unelectable in the fall, because they do not make enough exceptions for abortion. Graham also said, “If a woman is raped in Ted Cruz’s world, she’s going to have to carry the baby of the rapist. I’m pro-life, but I won’t go there.
Lindsey Graham, I would like to tell you I was conceived in rape and as my husband will say put ten people in a row and let me guess which one was conceived in rape. You can’t tell. My husband also says if God did not want my conception to take place, he would have stopped the conception from happening, but he didn’t. I was born to fulfill the plan that God has for my life.
Lindsey Graham, I am so glad that we have people like Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio understand that being pro-life is protecting all life. My question to all those that won’t speak up and take a stand that all life should be protected is. What makes you all so special that you were born?
