About
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.

What Do We Want? To Save Babies. When Do We Want It? NOW!

So everyone is famaliar with the pro-life feud. I don't even know a non-biased site to link to. We all know the problem. Abortion has been around since polyester shirts, and it doesn't despite our best efforts, it seems it's determined to stay.

We see babies dying everyday. Some for 33 years. It's easy to understand why people have thrown their hands up in the air and declared "enough!".

Enough incrementalism, enough waiting periods, enough parental consent. Ban abortion now! Only, the ban didn't pass. Not even in the most conservative state in the union.

So what do we do?

Do we attack each other and spend money that could save babies on hate ads? Do we cut ties and burn bridges? No! We celebrate our victories, even if only symbolic, and move forward.

For the first time in a long time we have momentum. A specific type of abortion has been banned! NARAL is scrambling. Why are we stopping dead in our tracks?

We are beating ourselves. We must end this battle and focus on what all must do to end abortion in this country. Together we can make a difference.

  • It reminds me of what's happening on the pro-abortion rights side, too. I`ve encountered people who feel that abortion is more of a "duty" than a "right," if a woman can`t support a baby, or if the baby will be handicapped and burden society -- having a baby can be a "selfish choice." Most of the pro-choicers I know really, really HATE that point of view, and we find ourselves arguing with people who ostensibly share our opinion on whether abortion should be legal.

    Also -- abortion has been around centuries longer than polyester shirts, and has even been legal much longer in other countries. In Japan, for instance, which I consider home, it`s been legal since the 1950`s.
