GivesMeHope.



When I woke up a good friend of mine sent me lil' stories from a website called GIVES ME HOPE . People from around the world share little stories about the things that let them know Hope is still alive. There is a reason for everything. Here is an example.

"28 years ago, a pregnant woman went to a doctor who told her that, due to her drug abuse and
alcoholism, her baby would be mentally handicapped and physically deformed.

He recommended an abortion, but she refused.

Yesterday, I received my doctorate degree in astrophysics from MIT.

Mom, you GMH"


I thought this was incredible. For a mother to go against the doctors not knowing if her baby will be OK but still willing to take on the challenge. She must have known God had a plan for her baby. This is proof the doctors aren't always right. Life is important. Think about all of the "would have beens" of the children that are murdered daily.

How selfish have we gotten? It is no one's fault other then the adults who are responsible for having intercourse. Why are we punishing the babies? I know the argument of rape and incest. I am mostly talking about the majority. Of course I do not believe in abortion of any form. I don't believe in killing a baby because of the evil of others. I know rapes and incest are also not the mothers fault. I will say this, according to studies preformed from 2005-2008:

78% of women who have abortions experience moderately severe to very severe negative emotional reactions.

64% of women who experienced one or more abortions "felt pressured by others" to have an abortion.

I know not everyone will agree with me on my beliefs and opinions on the issue of abortions but EVERYONE has the right to a life.
