“I wrote this on the anniversary of Roe vs. Wade, not to convince you to be Pro-Choice or Pro-Life. I wrote this because the women who choose to have abortions are real people with real emotions and real reasons why they chose that path. Choosing abortion is not easy for anyone and it is something that will effect them for the rest of their lives. Please be respectful when expressing your opinion and know that you can truly never say what you would do if you were in that woman’s situation.”
The age of “feelings”. Except for the tiny soul who will never, ever develop those feelings in this mortal coil.
Read this. And understand that IF that woman had walked out of the abortion clinic refusing to conduct one of the most heinous of crimes, she would NOT have been exemplifying “Fortitude”. Fortitude, would have been the woman (a la Mary Wagner) sitting down next to this lost soul in the clinic, with a rose in one hand, and the love of Christ falling from her lips, risking her very freedom to see that this world witnesses one less abortion.
If BOTH the woman who penned this heartbreaking account AND Mary Wagner/Linda Gibbons-types are ‘courageous’… if everyone is ‘courageous’, then the word has lost its meaning. Then the word no longer exists. Then “Fortitude”, one of the seven Gifts of the Holy Spirit, has been reduced to a joke. If we are going to call women who do not kill their own young ‘brave’, then – I’m afraid – God is being mocked. And Satan must be astonished at the work he’s getting done in our world.
