A Life Worth Living; One Worth Saving…

Abortion seems to be a huge issue in the political arena today, especially with our current President shoving the topic in everyone’s faces. I agree it is a volatile and important issue, but the question ultimately becomes “Who gets to choose who lives in the case of many third-trimester abortions.

My hail goes out to the wonderful man who stated on Fox how he views this topic, watch it. The two minutes will do all of us well.

It is very easy to simply turn the reigns over to the government for so many things. This current administration does not run things at all as I would like to see them run. I have stated before that I helped to vote him in as our leader and have since decided that was a poor choice (though the other side was worse, in my opinion even now).

That all being said, abortion is something that I wish, for the most part our government would stay out of. I know that is a rather simple statement and does not allow for all the people and organizations taking advantage of poor women who have gotten into situations they only know of one way to get out of. I can picture several that deserve out attention.

  1. A young college student, 18-20 yo especially, leave a high school in which the community was, for the most part, a fairly high moral environment. She gets to college (usually a large one) and is exposed to many many different aspects, legal and not-so. After a few months, she gets a bit lost in the new patterns, starts dating, and gets involved with a less-than-wonderful person (oh, it happens!). One thing leads to another and she ends up pregnant. She may have even been careful, but not so the other one. Now, he leaves her, perhaps, even leaves the college, and she is left with the matter to herself. Most likely, she wanted a baby SOME day, but not now, with college debt under her belt and no way to get a decent job yet. Add to that, poor, proud parents – and abortion is a way out, rather than trying to raise a child in a place where he/she will be poor, sick, and the mother might have really helped in her job as whatever…
  2. The second one is a reference back to the clip above. A woman intentionally gets pregnant, maybe not her first, and that child or the woman become very unhealthy in the last trimester because of the pregnancy. Is it really right to put the woman and/or the fetus through so much stress when it is likely the woman may die and leave an entire family without its mother?
  3. Illness, ignorance of the problems, there are many more reasons. You think of them or look them up.

This is not the do-all topic of objection to me, but the way it has been presented is wrong; it is unfair of our leader to put things this way – and that’s not the only thing he has done this one. This isn’t a put-down to the President; it is a wake-up call to everyone to think and think and think, then think some more – then vote, however you vote – let knowledge and true understanding fill you up as you enter the polls or vote from home.

Namaste,

Scott

    That is so very wonderful to hear! Mom and I muck along, doing the best we can. Indiana, it seems, has gone from one of the best states to one of the feared ones in just a couple of months. We are, mostly, staying in. I watch a lot of movies, series, and play online games. Situation normal.
    You?

      Good to hear that you both are doing well.
      To me life is closer to normal than a lot people. I go to the office every day and still manage to go to restaurants and on a date here and there. I am watching way more series now.
      Always counting my blessings. Even today where I feel lost and confused about our country’s situation, I am still grateful, hopeful and praying for peace!
      You be well! Taking care of yourself and Mom! ♥♥
