Whoa...

My own philosophy is often expressed in half-jokes. Do I believe what I say? Often, yes, but not always exactly as I say it.

My modified position on abortion is that the term should be raised to, say, the age of thirty. Years. Mom will have the only word in the matter. I think rude children and young adults would become a thing of the past. ; )

That, of course, is not practical. More practical would be to give the unborn a voice. In the course of the discussion the unborn will have an advocate. Without a unanimous vote the abortion would not go forward.

This would serve several purposes. It would allow for flexible laws to be written on the matter, give the one person involved who has no voice a voice, and require discussion, serious discussion, since the advocate would have to be convinced to give up the life of the unborn they represent.

From my viewpoint as a correctional officer, I like the first idea. Then if my charges give me any trouble, I could call their mothers.

Whoa… is an understatement! Stunned and shocked, I didn’t see that coming! I just completed a marvelous fictional book by Christian author Francine Rivers called “Atonement Child”. Every Christian must decide, take a stand for the rights of the unborn or stand for such heinous and senceless murders. "Atonement Child" is a moving book that tells a story you must read!

They would have saved even more if they left the kid alive and offed themselves (at LEAST twice as much). Why do Christian films (as a rule) have to be such crap (in terms of writing, acting, production qualities etc.)???

I have often wondered why people are shocked when a parent(s) kills their child(ren) but not when a woman has had an abortion. Often times when a pregnant mother is a victim of murder the prosecution will seek to add another life in prison sentence to the suspected murderer charges, and yet the state does not do the same when it comes to abortion.

I'm with William on this one. The production was just goofy. I get and agree with the point completely, but I burst out laughing when the dad came back into the room carrying a shotgun. They might as well have put an Elmer Fudd hat on him!

My initial reaction is that I want to vomit. I wish I hadn't watched it...

Blessings!

Isn't it historical fact that Roman fathers used to have a time period when they could decide to keep or not keep a newborn? If they chose not to accept the newborn, then the baby was left to die in a designated place where these chidlren were thrown? It's not unrealistic to think that abortion is just a step away from killing a baby outside the womb. Being the mother of six born and three who have died in the womb (miscarriages)...my children were loved and precious in the womb as much as outside of the womb.

Blessings!
