… can change the course of the future. That beautiful quote by J.R.R. Tolkien. I find it quite suitable for what I’m about to write. In my country, during Lent, there is a prolife 40 day prayer going to end the abortion. I don’t think I’ve ever written about such a strong and important subject. I know a lot of you will agree and a lot of you will disagree with me.
I am prolife. I just can’t stand and write nothing, no matter of the fact my blog is a photo blog and mainly focuses on sharing my photography. But, like I said, I have to write about this.
Being a pro-life is a strong personal opinion and foremost, it is the love for the unborn, the most weakest and defenseless of us all. I think and feel that one becomes a person from day 1, the moment it is conceived. That little, microscopic boy or a girl receives a soul. A new life started, no matter of the conditions and by conditions I mean being in momma’s belly. I don’t see the difference in calling one a person whether it is 2 days, 8 months or 25 years old. I just don’t see the point in calling one a person only when it is born. That baby, still in the belly, breaths the same air as we do and feels safe being close to his mom. The only difference is the way of breathing and being close to his/her mom. I know I am not all medical but I really write from the heart. It feels right like nothing else in this world. Every person deserves to live, no matter if it is wanted or not. From what I can read, from all the testimonies about deciding not go through with the abortion, their children became a huge blessing to them.
I truly believe God can turn even the most horrid situation into blessing for each and every person, no matter of the age. Our God always has the final word in everything and no matter what situation it is, He will get you thorough it and give you peace. I strongly believe God wants that little baby, He wanted it from ages and ages before. I know some babies are conceived in horrid situations and I am NOT stating God wanted that ! The only thing I’m stating He does LOVE that baby and wants to make wonders with her/him, He wants to give that person a dignity in life which we all have. In the end, we are made to do small things with great love. Some are born to do great, world changing things and some are born only to make the person next them happy and guess what – in God’s eyes, both deeds and people doing them are worth the same.
Also, no matter of the sin, He forgives. The greater the sin, the greater His mercy is. After all, He allowed His only Son to die for our sins and resurrect so we could be born again in Him. I can’t argue with that, if that isn’t the proof for true love, I can’t imagine what is. If you look at the profiles of the greatest people mentioned in the Bible – they all had something wrong with them, they all had something in their past (even murder! St. Paul, hello?). After you read about God’s mercy in their lives later on, you can only say Oh, I see what You did there! It is never too late to do the right thing, it is never late to let God heal you, no matter if you did wrong or the wrong was done to you. May His love shines upon you, forever. God bless.
How can there be too many children? That is like saying there are too many flowers.
