I decided to post Obscure's reply here as I want to
The conversation started on this post here.
Obscure stated in reply to my response to their comment -
"I meant the government dictating what we are able to do with our bodies - everyone pays taxes, and follows traffic laws. I understand that you cannot hear the other side, but I don't believe that is Jesus' way - I pray that you can find peace in allowing God to judge instead of man."
First of all I knew that Obscure meant that the government should not dictate what women are able to do with their bodies. In fact in most areas I would absolutely agree with this. I believe that overall the government has become to instrusive into the lives of the people of this great nation.
However, abortion is the taking of a human life. That is why it absolutely should be illegal. Murder is illegal in this nation, with the exception of abortion.
Obscure also makes the comment that "I understand you cannot hear the other side." This also is untrue. My parents housed a young women in the early 1970's who was an unwed mother. As a family we were and are committed to life and to helping others who find themselves pregnant and in a difficult position because of it. My husband and I have for many years given monthly support to a pregnancy service who help young women get care, housing, parenting classes, job skills, child care skills.
I have a granddaughter who was born five years before her parents married. I don't judge peoples circumstances, but I believe that I can speak the truth. And the truth is that abortion kills human babies.
One day God will judge and have quite a bit to say about the choice our nation has made to offer our children on this alter.
As a reminder, if comments become uncivil or if trolls arrive I will delete this post.
