Life is a precious gift given to us by our master creator Jesus Christ.
This past Tuesday night I had the privilege to watch Ted Cruz on Fox News so profoundly stand up for the right to life. He included the exceptions. He did not leave anyone out, and I am so proud of the stand he took.
I was conceived from rape, and I am so grateful and proud of my birth mother, and I love my birth mother. I am so blessed and thankful that my birth mother did what was right, had she gave into the pressure from her aunt my very life would have ended at a Planned Parenthood Facility.
When I got in contact with my birth mother, she said I have always loved you, and you were the beginning of my healing process. The words beginning of my healing process has been going through my mind lately since Ted Cruz profoundly took the stand to include all life.
There are women in this world that get raped. Rape is horrific and traumatic. When a woman gets pregnant through rape, she is scared and pressuring the woman and forcing the woman to have an abortion after rape only adds to the trauma. Instead of pressuring for abortion lets love her and her baby. We should not be punishing the baby, but punish the rapist.
What goes through my mind when a woman gets pregnant through rape, yes she is dealing with many difficult emotions, but what is God doing? God is creating a life in the midst of the womb for his plan to be fulfilled in that life. The very first plan that God does with this life is in the midst of the womb that baby is being used by God to help begin the healing process for the mother. When I thought about this, I thought even before I was born, even before I took my first breath outside the womb, even before I could understand things in the midst of the womb the very first plan the God had for my life was to help begin the healing process for my birth mother.
This year is a very pivotal year in the United States of America. We will be electing a new president. America needs God to heal our land. For that to happen as a nation, we need to repent and ask God to forgive us. When we go to vote, let’s pray and ask God, who do you want to be the new president of the United States of America. I know who I want God to place in the office. I want someone who will stand for Life, someone who will protect all life from conception to natural death.
When we destroy the life of the baby conceived in rape/incest, we are destroying the very first plan that God wants to use, and that is for the baby to begin the healing process for the mother and a life who has the right to life.
