Hi, this is my blog for all sorts of pro-life news, statistics, stories, and personal ventings. I am a wife and mother, as well as a nursing student. I I truly believe that abortion has failed women, and will continue to do so as long as it is legal.

The Religious collation of Reproductive Choice or What to do When the Enemy infiltrates Religious People

There is no doubt that a welcomed, loved child is a gift from God and a blessing to a joyful family. Yet, not every pregnancy is welcomed.

The preceding quote is taken from the Religious Collation of Reproductive Choice's website www.rcrc.org . They claim to be a group of religious clergy and laymen who believe in reproductive choice. Through a plethora of slanderous and blasphemous quotes and views, they have decided that God doesn't care about abortion, and if he does, well that's for you to deal with later.

The thing that bothers me the most about this website, however, is the original quote. It assumes that only the 50% of children classified as "wanted" are "gifts from God". What then can we assume the other 50% to be? If the prior grouping are "gifts" I suppose these "unwanted children" are "curses". This group seems to believe that God only gives us gifts in the way we ask for them, and that God's Will is subservient to our own. It also seems to belittle God's power and grace, by refusing his gifts and labeling them as problems and prenatal terrorists.

I can not believe that a group of supposed Christians(though I did notice they have strong ties with the Unitarian Universalists) could live with themselves while they spew hate through God's Word. Their claim that only "wanted children" are gifts further serves to demonize the poor half of our population who do not bare the distinction of "wanted". What then are these "unwanted" or "unplanned" children? Are we to believe that they are better off dead? My mother in law had 4 sons, none of them planned. The first 2 were twins(a fact she did not find out about until in her 8th month of pregnancy!). Somehow, she loves and cherishes all of her children and was elated when the next two came despite being told she would be unable to conceive after having an ovary removed. She sees her children as blessings, and every person I know who has experienced a "surprise" child feels the same.

Shame on the RCRC for placing half of God's children in the slums of society while elevating the other to his greatest gift. Either all children are curses, or all are blessings. I choose the later, though I fear that or society is more and more choosing the former.
