Roe v Wade, Forty Years After

Back in the late 1970s, an OB nurse became irate at a patient who checked in for her third abortion at the 5-6 month gestation stage. This woman enjoyed staying in the hospital overnight. The patient had ignored the prior "go home" prep talks about how easy and convenient contraceptives are to use to avoid unwanted pregnancy. Well, this nurse did something she probably would be arrested for today. On the third abortion, she cleaned up the little baby, put it in a clean stainless steel pan (the normal procedure, even if very premature babies are born alive) - and she took the pan with the perfectly formed but dead tiny baby to show the woman who aborted it. My friend said the woman screamed and screamed. She never came back.

This is the kind of woman your friend wanted to be a mother? She sound like an alley cat - and given the choice of coming to this Earth with a ferrel mother or my soul returning to heaven's guff - I'm going with the guff. I feel sorry for all the children this woman brought into the world, not the ones she sent back. As for your friend violating the mental health rights of another human...she's just as bad in my mind as the ferrel female. The pill was not so easy to take in the 70 - many, MANY side effects and in 1967 the blacks started a movement to get the pill out of Planned Parenthood due to genocide? Really? Not everyone shares your religious value set. Why not teach self worth and real birth control in schools and at home?

People were made by God to procreate? OK. But you're forgetting that said procreation was meant to take place under certain circumstances. Most of your unwanted pregnancies - and therefore abotions - occur OUTSIDE those circumstances.

Birth control means no birth and less control. G.K. Chesterton

The number forty has great significance in the Bible.

Perhaps best known is the forty years that the Israelites were condemned to wander in the desert before being permitted entry into the Promised Land.

Maybe this mystical quantity will bear significance as we note, this month, the fortieth year since the Roe v Wade decision legalized abortion in America.

Forty years we have lived with the silent, and sometimes not so silent, holocaust in our midst as the lives of 55 million innocent and unborn children have been killed, plucked from their journey to enter this world.

Who were they? Who...
