Abortion is Serious.



I Must Put A Disclaimer Up:
I personally am neither for or against this matter because I haven't learned enough about it to make a decision.
I read this and my eyes swelled up, therefore I am posting this to make you all think.
This is not to make anyone choose a side, but rather provide a view that hasn't been seen before.

Today I was on Facebook, and I couldn't help but notice a long post a friend of mine put up. Thinking I was going to pass it, I scrolled down, but instead started reading. This is what I read, and I hope to inspire you all with this post:

"Hi, Mommy. I’m your baby. You don’t know me yet, I’m only a few weeks old. You’re going to find out about me soon, though, I promise. Let me tell you some things about me. My name is Angel and I'm a girl, and I’ve got beautiful brown eyes and black hair. Well, I don’t have it yet, but I will when I’m born. I’m going to be your only child, and you’ll call me your one and only. I’m going to grow up without a daddy mostly, but we have each other. We’ll help each other, and love each other. I want to be a doctor when I grow up. You found out about me today, Mommy! You were so excited, you couldn’t wait to tell everyone. All you could do all day was smile, and life was perfect. You have a beautiful smile, Mommy. It will be the first face I will see in my life, and it will be the best thing I see in my life. I know it already. Today was the day you told Daddy. You were so excited to tell him about me! …He wasn’t happy, Mommy. He kind of got angry. I don’t think that you noticed, but he did. He started to talk about something called wedlock, and money, and bills, and stuff I don’t think I understand yet. You were still happy, though, so it was okay. Then he did something scary, Mommy. He hit you. I could feel you fall backward, and your hands flying up to protect me. I was okay… but I was very sad for you. You were crying then, Mommy. That’s a sound I don’t like. It doesn’t make me feel good. It made me cry, too. He said sorry after, and he hugged you again. You forgave him, Mommy, but I’m not sure if I do. It wasn’t right. You say he loves you… why would he hurt you? I don’t like it, Mommy. Finally, you can see me! Your stomach is a little bit bigger, and you’re so proud of me! You went out with your mommy to buy new clothes, and you were so so so happy. You sing to me, too. You have the most beautiful voice in the whole wide world. When you sing is when I’m happiest. And you talk to me, and I feel safe. So safe. You just wait and see, Mommy. When I am born I will be perfect just for you. I will make you proud, and I will love you with all of my heart. I can move my hands and feet now, Mommy. I do it because you put your hands on your belly to feel me, and I giggle. You giggle, too. I love you, Mommy. Daddy came to see you today, Mommy. I got really scared. He was acting funny and he wasn’t talking right. He said he didn’t want you. I don’t know why, but that’s what he said. And he hit you again. I got angry, Mommy. When I grow up I promise I won’t let you get hurt! I promise to protect you. Daddy is bad. I don’t care if you think that he is a good person, I think he’s bad. But he hit you, and he said he didn’t want us. He doesn’t like me. Why doesn’t he like me, Mommy? You didn’t talk to me tonight, Mommy. Is everything okay? It’s been three days since you saw Daddy. You haven’t talked to me or touched me or anything since that. Don’t you still love me, Mommy? I still love you. I think you feel sad. The only time I feel you is when you sleep. You sleep funny, kind of curled up on your side. And you hug me with your arms, and I feel safe and warm again. Why don’t you do that when you’re awake, any more? I’m 21 weeks old today, Mommy. Aren’t you proud of me? We’re going somewhere today, and it’s somewhere new. I’m excited. It looks like ahospital, too. I want to be a doctor when I grow up, Mommy. Did I tell you that? I hope you’re as excited as I am. I can’t wait. …Mommy, I’m getting scared. Your heart is still beating, but I don’t know what you are thinking. The doctor is talking to you. I think something’s going to happen soon. I’m really, really, really scared, Mommy. Please tell me you love me. Then I will feel safe again. I love you! Mommy, what are they doing to me!? It hurts! Please make them stop! It feels bad! Please, Mommy, please please help me! Make them stop! Don’t worry Mommy, I’m safe. I’m in heaven with the angels now. They told me what you did, and they said it’s called an abortion. Why, Mommy? Why did you do it? Don’t you love me any more? Why did you get rid of me? I’m really, really, really sorry if I did something wrong, Mommy. I love you, Mommy! I love you with all of my heart. Why don’t you love me? What did I do to deserve what they did to me? I want to live, Mommy! Please! It really, really hurts to see you not care about me, and not talk to me. Didn’t I love you enough? Please say you’ll keep me, Mommy! I want to live smile and watch the clouds and see your face and grow up and be a doctor. I don’t want to be here, I want you to love me again! I’m really really really sorry if I did something wrong. I love you! I love you, Mommy. Every abortion is just… One more heart that was stopped. Two more eyes that will never see. Two more hands 
that will never touch. Two more legs that will never run. One more mouth that will never speak."

What do you think about this?

  2. I saw this on twitter and practically broke down! Now all the supporters of abortion can see what its like to abort an innocent baby.

  3. This was so sad, I hadn't really heard of abortion before, but now that I have an idea, it really is sad, and the story of this baby is really upsetting. :'(

  4. This is really sad. I disagree with abortion completely and would never get one.
    However I agree with abortion if the parent had been forced into having sex. It wouldn't be fair to the child, then eventually finding out your father was a rapist etc. & the mother could end up resenting the child.
    The child could later end up with emotional/mental issues. So I do think it's okay in this case.

  7. I find it impossible to go one way or the other on the subject of abortion. Sometimes the child might have a better life in heaven. What if that child was born and was abused by her father? Would you want to be responsible for bringing that upon that child?

    But then of course there's this thing called "designer babies". Where parents do genetic testing on the embryo to see what the child will be like....and if there not happy...it's goodbye. That is just sick.

    The bottom line for me is that if you are capable of either giving this child a good life, or finding one for it (adoption) then by all means it's innocent soul should be protected.

  8. this is really sad...
    i can't say whether i am against abortion or not, i think there are too many factors in involved, and it is to difficult to decide unless you were in that situation...

  9. I think it's emotional blackmail.

    Some people just can't have a child, due to relationship and financial statuses, it's not their fault. They want to have an abortion so a child doesn't need to grow up in a world that they're not going to be safe or be able to cope in.

    It's already hard enough for the mother to give away their baby, their's no need to make them feel more guilty.

  10. I'm crying.

    And it's not emotional blackmail.

  11. It clearly was written for the purpose of tugging on your heart strings thus making you against abortion. People in politics use this strategy constantly, and people don't notice.

  12. For instance, there may be a girl out there, who could possibly have been sexually abused by her father [Horrible, I know], and a baby was born because of this. It would be total agony for the girl to give birth to an incest/rape child, and allowing the embyro to form into a child would also be cruel to the child. I am neither for or against abortion, I just think it's okay if the circumstances are right. Like someone stated above, some people try to have an abortion because they are not happy with their baby due to a disability or not the gender they were hoping for, and that is just pure idiocy and people that believe this is okay should not be allowed walk the streets.

  13. I also saw this on facebook and I'm embarrased to admit I cried. It was so sweet at first then when I saw where it was headed I broke down. Maybe it's dramatisation, but you have to give it to the writer, this is well done.

  16. Ugh, I hate discussing this subject time and time again, LOL. Nonetheless, I will say one more time I am pro-choice. If let's say I got pregnant right now, the only thing actually stopping me from getting an abortion will be the complications, and low chance of getting pregnant ever again. I hate it when people post things like this message, because it really makes me mad. It's only focusing on one side of the whole argument, rather than actually stating the facts. Can a 15 year old girl really take care of a child? Most kids who are born and given up for adoption don't get adopted. Not where I live. Oh, and ever heard of over-population? I'd rather have kids be killed before they are even kids, or newborns, than them possibly eventually starving to death. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Overpopulation

  17. if a girl has become pregnant via rape or the baby/mother wont survive child birth. or the girl is young and had unprotected sex under the influence of a alchol/protected sex but issues with contraceptive, i see no reason against abortion, but if it's just because the child will have a disability such as downs syndrome or paralysis and should be able to live relativley long and healthy life is diasbled, or the child wont look right. wth is up with that? you should care for and love your baby no matter what.

  18. Honestly I don't think it matters how I feel because I do not have children and I am not in the situation where I need to consider abortion because I am not pregnant, but I do believe that no matter what side you are on, and both sides do have valid arguments, that the choice of abortion should not be up to us. The choice should be that of the women who are pregnant. You cannot decide for someone else who you have never met what is in their best interest. What if the child was because of rape? What if it is because the child will be born with defects and you as a parent do not think you will be able to raise them? Some people decided to keep their babies in those situations and there is nothing wrong with that.

    Perhaps to make everyone happy there should be a waiting period of say, 2 or 3 weeks, where people who wish to abort have to wait for a period of time to be sure that this is what they want. Perhaps it should be only available under certain circumstances after talking to a psychologist or a doctor?

    Personally I am torn on killing another life through abortion and I may not personally chose it myself if I was in that situation, I do strongly believe that the choice should be there for women who need it, who have a valid reason for aborting, and that no one else should make that decision for them.
