End abortion by 2020

I have been accused of being narrow minded, a horrible scold - in part because I speak out against abortion and all of its horrors.

Those who know me know that I work with men and women who have had abortions - I see the devastation that abortion has wreaked in their lives. I know, first hand the devastation abortion brings. My son would have been 40 years old this September had he not been killed by abortion.

How many people are killed daily by abortion? 3,500 here in the United States. That is one abortion every 24 seconds. Note - I said how many people - for that is what happens when a baby is permitted to live - the baby grows up and become adults, people just like you and me. People who contribute (or not) to society - people who make a difference in our lives.

Thirty one percent of your tax dollars go to pay for abortions. Are you aware of this? No? Then perhaps it is time to get educated ... and it is way past time to end the killing of people here in the United States. People who have done nothing wrong - who are innocent - who deserve a chance to breathe their first breath.

Please watch this video - thank you!

I was just mindlessly paging through some blogs, you know, clicking on the “next blog” option, when I came across this one.
Abortion is always such a tricky subject, isn’t it? I mean, this is not a subject with grey areas. You are either a yes or a big no on this. Nothing in between.

I am a Christian woman.
I have a beautiful talented 20 year old son whom I love more than anything in this world.
I have also had an abortion about 10 years ago.

I remember taking the day off work and travelling to a city 4 hours drive from where I live.
I remember the dress I wore.
I remember the fear and the tears and the rudeness of the doctor.
I remember crying all the way home. The pain. In my heart and in my womb.

I also remember the relief.
This is not the place or the time to try and sketch my situation.

I realized a long time ago that people are not kind to anyone who had an abortion. They judge harshly.
Yes. Taking a life was not up to me, was it?
And I am sure, have I chosen to keep that baby, I would have, eventually coped.
Sometimes we make decisions at a certain time because the fear of whatever is in our lives at that time is bigger than anything else.

I would always try and talk somebody out of an abortion.
But if there is no other way, I would also drive somebody to the clinic, hold her hand and support her all the way.
Everybody does not deal with abortion the same way. I have seen too much of too much in my life to try and be anti-abortion.
I have seen child abuse. I have seen unwanted hungry children turning to crime and murder.

I live in Africa.
You just tell me…
Will you raise all those “unwanted” children?
Will you give them homes, feed them, educate them?
If you are willing to give me an unwavering and loud YES!!!! , I will start and anti-abortion campaign today. right here. Right now.
Give me that yes, and I will give you my dedication.
