I wasn't planning on writing more on this, but this video was just brought to my attention...
This is why I just can't justify abortion as a woman's choice. Be warned, the video is quite disturbing, in the same way visiting the Holocaust museum is. As I watched it that word, holocaust, kept going through my mind.
I was obviously intentional in my word choice for my previous post title. Pregnancy is not always a wonderful surprise. For some it is a burden, but the creation of life is never less than beautiful.
I hate that this is a political, polarizing issue. I wish it wasn't an issue that is mostly decided by party lines. I think it's just an issue of being human. Unfortunately, I know it's not that simple because I have plenty of intelligent, caring friends that disagree. It still doesn't make sense to me though, especially in my generation. My generation is passionate about fighting injustice, working to right wrongs, giving the unheard a voice. We think outside the box; abortion just seems like such an in-the-box answer.
