This … is heartbreaking:
Please join me in praying for the safety of the young woman and her child.
I can’t help but note that the only element that makes this scenario a tragedy, as opposed to a routine abortifacient procedure, is that this young woman wanted her child. In both the case of this young woman and the case of a young woman who does not want to keep her child … the child remains the same. For pro-aborts, a mother’s attitude towards their child determines whether it will live or not.
This is the contradiction at the heart of the pro-abortion movement: wanted babies are precious, called a “child”, and their mothers are given pre-natal care. CNN feels free to call a wanted child an “unborn baby.” Unwanted babies, on the other hand, are disposable – an inconvenience, referred to as a “fetus” and their mothers are told that the abortion procedure they are about to undergo is routine, commonplace.
Such a contradiction cannot last forever in any civilized society.
